Nabi ﷺ’s love for his daughter Sayyidah Fatimah (radiyallahu’anha)

Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) says, “….Whenever Fatimah (radiyallahu ‘anha) visited Nabi ﷺ, he would stand up and welcome her, take her hand, kiss it and make her sit in his place.”

(Mustadrak Hakim, 3/154. Declared authentic by ‘Allamah Dhahabi)

Morals

✅ As a mark of respect & love, one may stand up to welcome a visitor.

✅ Kissing the hand of one’s friend/beloved is also a sunnah.

✅ When we receive and welcome someone, give them the best seat in the house. Even if it be your own personal place- especially if it’s someone very respectable.

Don’t neglect salah while travelling

With the annual holidays upon us, we are reminded to ensure that we do not omit any salah.
A believer never neglects his/her salah.
The following Hadith is further inspiration for us on this issue, as Nabi ﷺ made special du’a for mercy on the one who was particular about his salah even while on journey.
Nabi ﷺ said:

“May Allah have mercy on my brother Abdullah ibn Rawahah, wherever he was and the time of Salah set in, he would stop his conveyance [to offer Salah]”

(‘Abdur Razzaq & Tabarani with a sound (hasan) chain.)

We as Muslims should not feel shy to offer our salah whenever we are [as long as we are not obstructing others].

✅This is a very active form of da’wah too.

Many people the world over were attracted to Islam by this.

How nice if Allah ﷻ‎ uses us also to guide others.

How often have we purchased items from vendors on the streets and sidewalks?

Those of us who do so, also have the habit of bargaining with these poor vendors.

The following Hadith is a source of guidance & inspiration on this topic:

Generosity of the Buyer

Sayyiduna Jabir (radiyallahu’anhu) reports that Nabi ﷺ had purchased a camel from me.
Rasulullah ﷺ paid me the price, and gave me a little extra.
As I departed He ﷺ called me back. I thought perhaps Nabi ﷺ was unhappy with the camel & wanted to return it. When I went to him, he said: ‘You may keep the money and the camel.’

(Sahih Bukhari, hadith: 2097 & Sahih Muslim, hadith: 3626)

Morals

When paying our dues, it’s good to give a little extra too.

✅ Sayyiduna Jabir (radiyallahu’anhu) had lots of overheads. He had the expenses of his 7 sisters as well.
This was a way in which Nabi ﷺ offered his support to him.

Let us also revive this practice, especially when we are purchasing goods from poor vendors on the sidewalks.
[on condition they are not exploiting foreign tourists]

✅ Instead of bargaining with such people, who are in conditions of much need, we ought to be paying the full price.

In some instances we should pay extra with the intention of charity.

At least once in a while, pay the price, take the item & then return it without taking back the money either.

See the joy that this blessed Sunnah of Nabi ﷺ brings to their faces.

In fact, the doer too feels a sense of satisfaction in this.

It could also be a means of attracting them to Islam.

Let’s give it a try this holiday season.

There are many rewarding deeds whose merits are inflated based on the occasion in which they are carried out.

One such deed is:

Walking for the salah of Jumu’ah.

Sayyiduna Aws Ibn Aws (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah ﷺ said:

Whoever (does the following on a Friday):

1⃣ Takes a thorough bath,
2⃣ Goes very early to the Masjid,
3⃣ Goes walking, not riding,
4⃣ Sits close to the imam (not against the back wall)
5⃣ Listens attentively to the khutbah (sermon)
6⃣ Does not engage in futile activity (like, talking to someone or fidgeting with his hair, clothes or cellphone etc)

Will receive for every step:

The reward for one year’s fast and one year’s Tahajjud Salaah!

(Sunan Abi Dawud & Tirmidhi, classified as Sahih by Imams: Ibn Khuzaimah, Ibn Hibban and Hakim)

There’s Nothing Better

One cannot imagine the amount of reward achievable for this weekly deed.

No wonder according to some experts, there is no other Sahih (authentic) Hadith with greater virtue than this one!

May Allah Ta’ala grant us all the ability to take advantage of this opportunity. Ameen.

Wudu incentives

The wudu of a believer is indicative of the position that cleanliness holds in Islam. Being the key to Salah, a mu’min will perform wudu at least 5 times a day. Therefore, utmost care should be taken in perfecting it. By implementing the following sunnats and guidelines extracted from the noble Ahadith of Rasulullah ﷺ, one would Insha Allah be able to achieve maximum reward for the wudu.

1⃣ If a person recites the following du’a before commencing wudu, the angles will continue recording reward for him as long as he remains in that wudu: ✅

Bismillahi wal Hamdulillah

Translation: In the name of Allah, all praise is for Allah.
(Al-Mu’jamus Saghir li Tabarani, classified as sound; Majmaúz zawaid)

2⃣ The use of miswak multiples the reward of two rakats of salah 70 fold. ⚖
(Abu Nu’aim in Kitabus Siwak, declared reliable; Targhib)

3⃣ Among the practices of Rasulullah ﷺ that is extinct nowadays during wudu is the khilal (passing of wet fingers) through the beard.
(Sunan Abi Dawud & Sahih Ibn Hibban)

– To be continued..

In the meantime, lets implement these 3⃣ wudu enhancers
step by step

Wudu incentives continued…

By keeping these points in mind at Wudu time, we will feel added enjoyment in our Wudu insha Allah.

4⃣ It is mustahabb (preferable) to do masah (wipe with wet fingers) on the nape. One who makes masah on the nape will be saved from severe thirst and from being shackled on the day of Qiyamah.

(see authentication of supporting narrations in: I’la-us sunan. vol.1 pg.123)

5 The sins committed by the limbs that are being washed in wudu are also washed away.
(Sahih Muslim, Hadith:576)

6⃣ Rasulullah ﷺ has informed the ummah that they will be distinguished from the rest of mankind by the shine of the limbs of wudu. He ﷺ therefore encouraged:

“Those who can increase the shine should do so.”
i.e. By washing extra.

(Sahih Bukahri, Hadith:136)

Sayyidiuna Abu Hurairah (radiyallahuánhu) would actually wash up to his armpits and shins because of this Hadith.

(Sahih Muslim Hadith:578)

Some Fuqaha (Jurists) have stated that it is mustahabb (meritorious) to at least do so up to half way between the elbows and armpits and up to half the shin. This will not be considered as israf (wastage) of water.

(Tahtawi álad durr, vol.1 pg.76, Shami, vol.1 pg.130)

Wudu incentives 

continued…

By keeping these points in mind at Wudu time, we will feel added enjoyment in our Wudu insha Allah.

7⃣ The angels ask Allah ﷻ‎ to forgive and have mercy on the one who remains in his/her place of salah with wudu after completing the salah, until the wudu is broken.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith:445 & Sahih Muslim, Hadith:1507)

8⃣ Despite having wudu it is mustahabb (preferable) to renew the wudu for every Salah. ✅

(Sunan Tirmizhi, hadith:58-59 & Faidhul Qadir, Hadith:8607)

NB: This only applies to the one who has offered salah or any other act of worship with the previous wudu. (Shami vol.1 pg.119)

9⃣ One should try to be in the state of wudu all the time. He who passes away in the state of wudu dies as a Shaheed (Martyr).

(Majmaúz zawaid, vol.1 pg. 271 & Fathul malikil áliy, pg.35)

The greatest incentive of wudu is that it is the key to salah and salah is the key to Jannah.

(Musnad Ahmad Hadith 14597)

Imagine the reward of the one who implements these incentives daily, five times each day?

Now consider the extent of the reward if one teaches this to others…

Virtues of sleeping with Wudu

There are many incentives for practicing this sunnah. Hereunder are a few which state that one who sleeps with Wudu will receive:
1⃣ The du’a of the Angels.
2⃣ His soul will make sajdah under the ‘Arsh (Throne) of Allah ﷻ‎.
3⃣ He will receive the reward of engaging in salah & dhikr the entire night.

See the details below.

From the Hadith:

Sayyiduna Ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu’anhumu) reported that Nabi ﷺ said:
‘Purify these bodies and Allah will purify you, for there is no slave who goes to sleep in a state of purity but an Angel spends the night with him. Every time he turns over, [the Angel] says, ‘O Allah! Forgive Your slave, for he went to bed in a state of purity.’
(Al-Mu’jamul Awsat of Tabarani, Hadith: 5087 with a good (jayyid) chain. Refer: Targhib, 1/409 &Al-Matjarur Rabih, Hadith: 353)

From the statements of the Sahabah (radiyallahu’anhum):

Sayyiduna Abud Darda (radiyallahu’anhu) has said:
‘When a person sleeps, his soul (ruh) rises to the throne (Arsh) of Allah. If he slept with wudu, the soul is permitted to make sajdah (by the Arsh of Allah). If he slept in the state of impurity, permission for sajdah is refused.’
(Kitabuz Zud of Ibnul Mubarak, Hadith:1245)

A similar virtue is reported from Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr ibnul ‘As (radiyallahu’anhuma) in Shu’abul Iman, Hadith: 2527
Also see: Fathul Bari, Hadith: 1149

From the Pious Tabi’un (those after the Sahabah)

Imam Abu Murayah Al ‘Ijli (rahimahullah) said:
‘Whoever retires to bed in the state of wudu and falls off to sleep while engaging in the dhikr of Allah Ta’ala, his bed will be regarded as a Masjid. He will receive the reward of being in Salah and dhikr until he awakens.’
(Musannaf ‘Abdur Razzaq, Hadith: 19837. Refer: Fathul Bari, Hadith: 6311)

Lets take advantage of these super benefits of sleeping with Wudu. A simple, yet so beneficial deed.

In so doing, we won’t lose as we snooze!

La malja -a wala manja-minka illa ilayk
Amantu bi kitabikal ladhy anzalta wa bi nabiyyikal ladhi arsalta
