Kusuf Salaah (Salaah at an eclipse)

Hadith & Seerah, The Teachings of the Holy Prophet, The Ways of the Prophet (SAWS) / Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

Hadrat Abu Musa ‘Ash ‘ari (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated; There was an eclipse of the sun, and the Prophet got up in trepidation fearing that the last hour had come. He then went to the mosque and prayed, standing, bowing and prostrating himself longer than I had ever seen him do. He then said, “These signs which ALLAH send do not come on account of anyone’s death or on account of his birth, but ALLAH produces dread in his servants by means of them. So when you see anything of that nature, apply yourselves to making mention of Him, supplication of Him and asking pardon of Him”. [BukhAri – Muslim]
