Salam to Hazrat Umar Faroque

Fiqh, Hajj - Merits and Precepts / Saturday, November 14th, 2009

By moving aside at an arm’s length you should thereafter pay Salam to Hazrat Umar Faroque.

“Peace be with you O Commander of the Faithful, Umar Faroque by whom Allah added glory to Islam ! Allah made you the Leader of the Muslims, while He chose you as alive and as dead. May Allah grant you a good reward on behalf of the people of Muhammad.”
Here as well a decrease or an increase in the words depends upon your own choice. However, pay Salam on behalf of the persons who made such a request to you and then move a bit forward and say :

“Peace be upon both of you. Co-deposers of the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him), his companions and his premiers ! May Allah grant both of you the best reward. We have come to you in order to seek your mediation towards the Messanger of Allah (Peace be upon him) so that he may intercede for us and pray for us to our Lord that He may preserve us alive on his faith and his tradition and on the Day of Resurrection He may restore us and all Muslims to life in his group, (of followers).”

Thereafter, by moving forward and standing face to face with the Holy Prophet you should pray to Allah whatever you can, particularly you should invoke blessings yourself, your parents and common Muslims. You should then move from there and on reaching near the Pillar of “Ustuwana Abu Lubaba” you should offer two Rak’ats of prayers alongwith the invocations in the end. Some more Nafl prayer should be offered on coming back to Raudhat-ul-Janna. In case of the time being Makroh you should keep yourself bussy with saying of the name of Allah, Istighfar and invocations. Everywhere and as long as you can you should not be neglectful of invocations and Darood. The more often you repeat them the better it is.

Try to remain bussy in the recital of the Holy Qur’an and the name of Allah as long as you stay in Madina. Darood Sharif should also be often repeated. You should often keep awake during the night and should not waste time. Offer your prayers in Masjid-e-Nabavi as far as possible. Following a daily regular visit to the sacred grave of the Holy Prophet you should try to pay every day or on Fridays visit to the grave-yard of Jannat-ul-Baqi as well, as Hazrat Uthman, Hazrat Abbas, Hazrat Hasan, Hazrat Ibrahim, the son of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) and the purified wives of the Holy Prophet as well as his other great Companions are reposing there. A visit should also be paid to the graves of Amir Hamza and the martyrs of Uhd (My Allah bless them with his pleasure). Nafl prayers should also be offered in the Mosque of Hazrat Fatima (May Allah bless her with His pleasure). On Saturday, You go to Masjid-e-Quba and after saying prayers you should invoke Allah’s blessings.
As long as you stay in Madina, pay regular visits to the Sacred Mausoleum and offer Salam as often as you can, particularly after all the five prayers (Zubda).

Rule Of Action
If, at any time, it is not possible to avail your presence at Mawajah Sharif (The Place confronting to the sacred grave), you may pay your Salam by standing any side of the sacred mausoleum or anywhere in Masjid-e-Nabavi, but it does not bear the same pre-eminence as bears the Salam paid at Mawajah Sharif.

Rule Of Action
Even outside Masjid-e-Nabavi whenever you happen to pass by the Sacred Mausoleum, stay for a while in front of it and do not go forth until you pay a Salam.

Rule Of Action
Women should also visit the Sacred Mausoleum and pay a Salam in front of Mawajah Sharif but it is better for them to be present at night and at rush hours to pay Salam from a distance.

Rule Of Action
While in Masjid-e-Nabavi keep yourself aloof from wordly talks and do not speak with a loud voice.
