    VERY Rewarding Nafl Salaahs we can Pray Everyday!


    1.TAHIYATUL WUDHU (Nafl prayer after doing Wudu)

    Abu Hurairah Radiyallahu 'anhu narrates that once Nabi Sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam asked Bilal (Radiyallahu 'anhu) at Fajr Salat:

    O Bilal!

    Tell me that deed of yours
    which is most hopeful (for reward)
    after embracing Islam,
    for I heard your footsteps in front of me in Paradise
    (in my dream).


    Bilal (Radiyallahu 'anhu) replied:

    I have not done anything extroadinary except that
    whenever I perform Wudu during the day or night,
    I Salat (Tahiyatul-Wudu) after that,
    as much as was written or granted for me.
    (Bukhari)

    Abu Huraira Radhiallahu ‘anhu narrated that Allah’s Messenger Shalallahu ‘alaihi wa Salam said to Bilal Radhiallahu ‘anhu “Tell me about the most hopeful act (i.e one which you deem the most rewarding with Allah) you have done since your acceptance of Islam because I heard the sound of the steps of your shoes in front of me in paradise.” Bilal said : “I do not consider any act more hopeful than that whenever I make ablution (wudoo) at any time of night or day, I offer salah (prayer) for as long as was destined for me to offer.” Narrated by Al-bukhari and Muslim.

    After completion of the wudhu of two Rakaats is full of blessings (sawaab). It is related in the Hadith that performance of the two Rakaats of Tahiyatul wudhu Namaaz makes paradise obligatory (wajib) for the performer (ref:Muslim Sharif) There are also many other benefits.

    It should not be performed during the Improper (makruh) times. (When the sun rises, when it is at Zenith and when it sets.)

    2. Prayer of Ishraq (Sunrise prayer)

    The beloved Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) has said: Those who perform the Fajr prayer in congregation (Jamaa’at), read the Zikr (remembrance of Allah) till the sun has completely arisen (length of a spear from the horizon, after 20 minutes of sunrise) and read 2 Raka-at Nafil prayer, will have the benedictions (sawaab) equal to those of Haj-Umrah. It is recommended to read the Surah Fateha and Ayyat-uk-Kursi till Khaalidoon, in the first Raka-at, and in the second Raka-at to read, after Surah Fateha, Aamanar Rasul till the end of Suratul Baqarah. In the case that this verse cannot be read from memory, one can recite any other verse and then ask Duas. Woman should read all prayers of Farz and Nafil at home and will derive the same benefits (sawaab) that accrue from prayer performed at the Mosque (Tirmizi Shareef).

    The Prophet (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) is reported to have said that Whoever, after finishing Fajr salat, kept sitting at the place of prayer, and prayed the Ishraq salat before getting up from there, provided he did not engage in any worldly act or conversation during that time, and instead, remained in Allah's Zikr (remembrance), then all his sins are forgiven, even if they are as much as the foarn of the ocean. [Abu Da'ud] The scholars have written that during this time, the person should take care to sit facing the Qiblah. Sheikh Shahabuddin Soharwardi (R.A.) used to say that the action whose reward is obtained right away in this world, is that a person, after Fajr salat, facing Qiblah, does Zikr of Allah until Ishraq. After a few days the person will gain inner spiritual light (Nuraniyat).

    Rasulullah is reported to have said that Allah Ta'ala says, 'O son of Aadam, perform 4 Rakaats of Salat (Ishraaq) in the early part of the day. I shall help you in accomplishing all your responsibilities during the rest of the day.' (Mishkaat pg.116)

    In another narration of Tirmidhi, Rasulullah is reported to have said, 'He who performs Fajr Salat with Jamaat and remains seated in the same place while engaging in Dhikr until after sunrise and thereafter performs 2 Rakaats Nafil Salat, (Ishraaq), he will obtain the Thawaab of one Hajj and one Umrah.' (Tirmidhi).


    From the above Ahaadith, we learn that the number of Rakaats to be performed are 2 or 4 Rakaats, and the Mustahabb method of performing it is to remain seated in your place of Salat after Fajr and engage in Dhikr, etc. until sunrise. Then, approximately, 10-15 minutes after sunrise perform 2-4 Rakaats. 'If a person gets occupied in some worldly activity after the Fajr Salat, and after sunrise he offers Ishraaq Salat, this will also be permissible although the reward will be less.' (Bahishti Zewar part2 pg.30)

    3. Dhuhaa Salaat (Breakfast prayer)

    When the sun has risen high and there is heat in its rays, the performance of 2,4, 6,8 or 12 rakaats is called Namaaz-e-Chaast. This is full of countless rewards.

    The Traditions says that the performance of 2 rakaats wipes away all ones sins. There are 360 joints in our body and to pay Sadakah for each is Wajib (obligatory) The 2 rakaaats is enough to pay all the Sadakah. Performance of 4 rakaats places the performer's name among the Abids and is the Sunnat of Saliheen and promise the performer protection until the evening. The performer of 6 rakaats is relieved of his day's worries. Performance of 8 rakaats places his name among the Parhezgaars and the performer of 12 rakaats ensures a Golden Mansion or castle for himself in Paradise. (Ref : Tirmizi, Ibne Majah, Ahmad and Abu Yala)

    The Mustahabb (preferred) time of performing Salat al-Dhuhaa is after 1/4 of the day has passed. This is deduced from a Hadith of Muslim. (Halabi; Sharah Kabeer pg.390). From many Ahaadith, we understand that Salat al-Dhuhaa should be performed after the sun has risen quiet high. Because the Fuqahaa and Muhadditheen are of the opinion that the commencement of the time of Salat al-Dhuhaa is the same as that of Ishraaq (i.e. immediately after sunrise), the Ulama have stated that 'if due to lack of time, one performs the Salat of Ishraaq and Dhuhaa together at one time, that too will be correct.' (Our Namaas pg.44)

    Rasulullah is reported to have said, 'Whoever offers 2 Rakaats of Salat al-Dhuhaa, all his sins will be forgiven even though they are as much as the foam of the sea.' (Ibid)

    It is reported that Sayyidna Aaisha (Radhiallaahu Anha) used to perform 8 Rakaats of Salat al-Dhuhaa. She said that even if her parents arose from the grave, she would not leave Salat al-Dhuhaa to go and meet them. (Ibid).

    'Salat al-Dhuhaa consists of 2 - 12 Rakaats and it is preferable to perform 8 Rakaats.' (Raddul Mukhtaar vol.1 pg.505)


    The Prophet (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) is reported to have said that Whoever prayed twelve rakaats at the time of Chasht, then Allah will, as reward, prepare a palace of gold for him in Paradise. [Mishkat, Tirmizi, Ibn Majah]


    4. Virtues of the Four Rak'aah Sunnah of Zuhr


    The Prophet (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) is reported to have said that Whoever performs the four rakaats before and after the Zuhr salat with constancy, Allah Ta'ala makes the fire of Hell haram (forbidden) for him. [Mishkat, p. 104; Tirmizi, Abu Da'ud, Nisai, Ibn Majah]


    The Prophet (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) is reported to have said that after the worshipper prays the four rakaats of Zuhr salat, the doors of heaven are opened, i.e. the salat becomes accepted by Allah, and the cause of its acceptance comes down on the worshipper as rays of mercy. [Mishkat, p. 104]

    5. Virtues of the 4 Rak'aah Sunnah of Asr

    Messenger (sallallaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) said: "May Allaah have Mercy on the one who offers four (rak'ahs) before 'Asr prayer." (Abu Dawud)

    6.Prayer of Tahajjud (Night prayer)

    Our Master, the beloved Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) has said: In Paradise there is a castle reserved for those who read Tahajjud and the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) further adds, those who pray at night will enter paradise without having to account for their acts in this life.
    The Nafils of Tahajjud are read after the Esha prayer, but it is important to sleep before performing Tahajjud. The prayer consists of a minimum of 2 Raka-ats, and a maximum of 8 or 12 Raka-ats (to be read according ones capacity).

    After Esha prayers sleep for some time, then wake up any time during the night before the rise of morning for Tahajjud prayers. With the performance of 2 Rakats you have duly achieved your Tahajjud. However, the performance of 8 Rakats in Sunnat, and complying with the practice of the Holy Saints of Islam and performing 12 Rakats is commendable.

    It is recommended that you recite in your prayers as much of the Sacred Quran as you know. If you happen to know by heart the whole of the Sacred Quran you may, in at least 3 nights or most 4 nights of Tahajjud effectuate the complete reading of the Sacred Quran.

    Otherwise, you may recite 3 Surah Ikhlas (Qul Hu Allahu Ahad) after your "Alhamdu..." in every Rakat and you will thus derive full benefits of the full recital of the Sacred Quran in every Rakat.

    During the month of Ramadan one should awake a little earlier for Sehri and make time to pray Tahajjud Salaah for the reward is magnified so much more in Ramadan and duas are even more readily accepted than at any other time of the year.

    The dua's at the time of Tahajjud are very readily accepted by Almighty Allah and one should repent and ask of Allah and try to cry in their dua's at this time, if one cannot cry due to the hardness of ones heart due to sin then at least one should make the face as if one is crying. Just as a mother tends to her baby quickly and promptly when it cries the same way Allah attends to his servant quicker when they are crying


    7.Virtues of walking to the Masjid

    Abu Hurayra رضى الله تعالى عنه reported that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said,

    "Anyone who purifies himself in his house and then goes to one of the houses of Allah to fulfil one of the obligations of Allah, one step removes an error and the other raises him a degree." [Muslim]


    8. Virtues of Praying in the Masjid

    The Prophet (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) is reported to have said that The person who, from morning to evening, goes towards the Masjid to perform salat, every time he goes to the Masjid, Allah Ta'ala prepares the Paradise for his welcome. [Mishkat]

    9. Tahiyyatul Masjid (Nafl prayer when entering Masjid)

    Abu Qatada Radhiallahu ‘anhu narrated that the Prophet Shalallahu ‘alaihi wa Salam said : “If any one of you enters a mosque, he should pray two raka’ats before sitting.” Narrated by Al-Bukhari and Muslim.

    This is a 2 Rak'aah Nafl prayer which one should perform as one enters the Masjid. It is very rewarding.


    10. Reward of Salaah multiplied 70 times or more by use of Miswaak

    ‘Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) has reported that,

    “The prayer before which the Miswak is used is seventy times more excellent than that before which it is not used.”

    Ibn Abbas, ‘Ali and Ata (may Allah be pleased with them all) state that,

    “But it increases to 99 or 400 times.”

    Reward for every action is based on sincerity, the more sincerity we are the the more reward we'll get! It may be that we could get 70, 99 or even 400 times or more rewards for every action depending on how sincere we are in doing the action. Subhanallah!

    Build Me a House…in Jannah!

    The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:
    “Allah will build a house in Paradise for whoever is diligent in observing 12 sunnah rakaat (as follows):
    4 rakaat before and 2 after the Dhuhr Prayer,
    2 after the Maghrib prayer,
    2 after the Isha Prayer,
    and 2 before the Fajr Prayer.”
    [Reported by Tirmidhi and others]

    How easy is it to build a house for ourselves in Jannah? In this world mansions are designed by architects but in Jannah Allah is the architect so can you imagine how beautiful the houses and mansions in Jannah will be encrusted with jewels and made out of gold. They will be beautiful beyond our imagination!

    So from now on let us make a firm intention to pray all of these Sunnah and we can have a house in Jannah built for us EVERYDAY! Subhanallah!

Thereafter, commence your Du'aa by praising Allah and sending salutations upon Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)."

    Recite the following Du'aa, "Laa ilaaha illallaahul haleemul kareem. Subhaanallaahu rabbil arshil adheem, alhamdulillaahi rabbil `aalameen. As-aluka muwjibaat rahmatika, wa `adhaaima maghfiratika wal ghaneemat min kulli birr was salaamat min kulli ithm, laa tada`a liy dhanban illaa ghafaratah walaa hamman illaa farrajtah walaa haajatan hiya laka ridhan illaa qadhaytahaa Yaa arhamar raahimeen"

    (Trans: There is no deity besides Allah who is most tolerant and most noble. Glory be to Allah Who is the Lord of the majestic throne. All praises are for Allah, the lord of the Universe. I am asking you O Allah to bestow upon me Your mercy and forgiveness, grant me piety and protection from all misfortunes. Do not leave any sin on me except that you forgive me, relieve me from distress and difficulties and fulfil all such needs of mine which You are pleased with - O Most Merciful of those who show mercy.) (Tirmidhi pg.108; Ashrafiyya)

    Together with performing this Salaat, one should always keep in mind that help and assistance comes only from Allah Ta'ala. Allah grants to whomsoever He wishes and withholds from whomsoever He wishes. If one's needs are not fulfilled, do not ever become despondent in the mercy of Allah because Allah is the most wise and know best the reason of withholding one's Du'aas and needs.

    and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

    I am confused. I have been taught to pray Salaatul haajat in a different way.

    In the first rakah, after surah fatiha, recite 10 times Surah Ikhlas
    In the second rakah, recite 20 times surah Ikhlas
    In the third rakah, recite 30 times surah Ikhlas
    In the fourth rakah, 40 times.
    After salaam,
    50 times surah Ikhlas
    70 times darud shareef
    70 times La haula wala quwata illa billahi aliyil adheem.

    Is this wrong?

    Reciting Qur’an whilst in Qiyaam (Standing in prayer)

    Abd-Allah ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas (may Allah be pleased with them both), narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

    Whoever recites ten aayaat (verses) in qiyaam will not be recorded as one of the forgetful. Whoever recites a hundred aayaat (verses) in qiyaam will be recorded as one of the devout, and whoever prays a thousand aayaat (verses) in qiyaam will be recorded as one of the muqantareen (those who pile up good deeds).” (Reported by Abu Dawood and Ibn Hibbaan. It is a hasan report. Saheeh al-Targheeb, 635).

    Getting closer to Allah through voluntary prayers



    Voluntary prayers enable one to get closer to Allah as Allah says in Hadith Qudsi:

    Allah says in Hadith Qudsi:

    ….and My slave keeps on coming closer to Me through performing Nawafil (voluntary deeds) until I love him, so I become his sense of hearing with which he hears, and his sense of sight with which he sees, and his hand with which he grips, and his leg with which he walks; and if he asks Me, I will give him, and if he asks My Protection, I will protect him..." [Bukhari]

    It will also enable us to do many more prostrations which is the best and most closest position a Muslim can be towards Allah as the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) taught us:


    “Prostrate much because there is no Muslim that prostrates to God except that God raises him one degree in Paradise by it and forgives for him a sin.” (Ahmad)

    So the more we prostrate, the more our ranks will be raised in Jannah insha’Allah until we reach the highest level, Jannat Al-Firdaus, and this is where the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) will be. So praying many voluntary prayers will enable us to be closer to our Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) who is in the highest ranks of Jannah:

    A Source of Elevation for you


    The Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) said: "Ask (anything)." Rabi'ah said: "I ask of you to be your companion in paradise." The Prophet said: “Anything else?" Rabi'ah said: "That is it." The Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) said to him: "Then help me by making many prostrations (i.e., supererogatory prayers)." [Muslim]


    Praying Tahajjud to get closer to Allah


    The best of the voluntary prayers is Tahajjud prayer:

    Allah Most High said, “Establish worship at the going down of the sun until the dark of the night, and (the recital of) the Qur’an at dawn. Lo! (the recital of) the Qur’an at dawn is ever witnessed. And some part of the night awake for its recital, as voluntary worship for you. It may be that your Lord will raise you to a praised estate.” [Qur’an, 17: 78-79]


    Abu Hurayra (Allah be pleased with him) reports that the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace be upon him, his family, and companions) said, “The best prayer after the obligatory prayers is the night prayer.” [Muslim]


    Abu Umama al-Bahili (Allah be pleased with him) reports that the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace be upon him, his family, and companions) said, “Hold fast to night prayer, for it was the way of the righteous before you, a way of drawing closer to your Lord, an expiation for wrong deeds, and a shield from sin.” [Tirmidhi, and others] In some narrations, there is an addition, “And it repels sickness from the body.”


    And because night vigil time is the best of times for voluntary worship and prayer, and the closest a servant is to his Lord.


    So let us make the habit of reading as many voluntary prayers as we can for more prayers we pray then the more prostrations will will do and one is truly the closest to Allah in prostration.


    ….bow down in prostration and bring yourself the closer (to Allah)." (96:19)


    May Allah enable us to prostrate to him as much as possible so that we may be the closest to him in this world and the next. Ameen

    Re: VERY Rewarding Nafl Salaahs we can Pray Everyday!

    The superiority of praying the voluntary prayer in a place no one can see you:


    The voluntary prayer of a man (in a place) where no person can see him equal to twenty-five times his prayer where people can see him. (Musnad Aboo Ya’ala, Hadeeth 3821.)

    The superiority of the prayer of a man in his house over his prayer (in a place) so that people can see him, is like the superiority of the obligatory prayer over the voluntary. (Saheeh At-Targeeb Wa At-Tarheeb)

    Re: VERY Rewarding Nafl Salaahs we can Pray Everyday!

    Maximising Nawafil (Superogatory) prayers during this blessed month:

    In order to maximize voluntary prayers (Nawafil) this month then:

    Make a goal of performing every Fard (Obligatory prayer) prayer at its prescribed time. The best tip to help you in this regard is to prepare for the Salaah a little before the Adhan (Call to prayer) goes on.

    Add sunnah and voluntary prayers with each fard prayer that you perform (where applicable).

    Perform different extra voluntary prayers such as Duha and Tahajjud. Make or use a Ramadan checklist to tick off each and every time you have completed a Nawafil prayer on any particular day. Make a target to gradually increase Nawafil prayers each day.

    Remember: Each and every Nawafil prayer carries the reward of a Fard prayer during this blessed month. Subhanallah!

    Re: VERY Rewarding Nafl Salaahs we can Pray Everyday!




    A very beneficial Nafl Salaah is Salaatul Tawbah (Prayer of Repentance):

    Abu Bakr (Allah be pleased with him) related from the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) that he said,

    “There is no one who commits a sin, goes and performs ritual ablutions, and then prays two rakats after which they seek Allah’s forgiveness except that He forgives them.”

    After this, he (peace and blessings be upon him) recited Allah Most High’s words,
    “And those who, when they do an evil thing or wrong themselves, remember Allah and implore forgiveness for their sins - Who forgives sins save Allah only? - and will not knowingly repeat (the wrong) they did.” [Qur’an, 3.135]

    This has been related by Abu Dawud and Tirmidhi in their respective Sunan, and the scholars declared it to be a recommended prayer. [Ibn Qudama, al-Mughni 1.348, Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar 2.28, quoting Sharh Shir`at al-Islam via Shaykh Isma`il al-Nabulsi]


    It is recommended to follow a bad deed up by a good deed - and how best a deed is salaah.

    So, in shaa Allah, whenever we slip up/ err, we always remember to turn to Allah immediately, or as soon as possible, in sincere remorse and regret, begging of His forgiveness.

    Even if it is a 'minor' sin - it has been a means of causing the displeasure of our Creator....who, if it were not for His immense mercy and love for His creation, would have eliminated us at the actual time of our disobedience.

    If we really think about it - we should be making the effort to read these 2 rakaats of Nafl salaatul Tawbah everyday in shaa Allah (as, is there any day that passes, where we have not faulted in some way, no matter how seemingly small?)

    May Allah Taa'la make this possible for all of us.
    Ameen

    Re: VERY Rewarding Nafl Salaahs we can Pray Everyday!

    Voluntary prayers fill the void of the obligatory prayers:

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "The very first thing a servant will be asked about on the Day of Judgement is the prayer. If it is found to be deficient, then it will be said, ‘Doesn’t he have any optional prayers?’ If it is found that he has optional prayers, then they will fill the void, and thus his prayers will be accepted, and the rest of his deeds will also be accepted." [At-Tirmithee, Aboo Daawood, An-Nasaa’ee, Saheeh Al-Jaami’is-Sagheer wa Ziyaadah #2020]
