Prophet Yusuf (peace be upon him) made this dua after he became the ruler of Egypt, and he met with his parents. The parents prostrated to Allah (SWT) and Yusuf (peace be upon him) realised his dream of eleven stars and the sun and the moon making obeisance to Allah (SWT).

I’ITIKAAF – SECLUSION IN THE MASJID HADITH NO. 4


Dawah & Tabligh, Virtues of Ramadan (Fazail e Aamaal)

Ibn Abbas R.A. says that he heard our Nabi S.W. say, Verily Jannah becomes perfumed with the sweetest fragrance in Ramadhaan. From the beginning of the year till the end, it is being brightly decorated for the coming of this blessed month. And when the first night of Ramadhaan appears, a wind blows from beneath t he Ar-sh (Throne). It is called Mutheerah, and causes the leaves of the trees of Jannah to rustle and door handle to sound, where by setting forth such a melodious sound as had never been heard before. The dark eyed damsels of Jannah then step forth till they appear in the centre of the balconies of Jannah, exclaiming: is there anyone making duaa’ to Allah for us that Allah may join us in marriage to him?” Then these damsels call out: “O Ridhwaan, keeper of Jannah, what night is this?” He replies: “Labbaik, this is indeed the first night of Ramadhaan, when the doors of Jannah are opened to those who observe the fast from among the ummah of Muhammad S.W.. Rasulullah S.W. further sai, Allah says, “O Ridhwaan open the doors of Jannah, and O Maalik, (keeper of Jahannam) close the doors of Jahannam for those who fast from among the ummah of Ahmad “O Jibraeel proceed down to the earth and bind the rebellious shay’taans, put them in chains and cast them in the oceans so that they make nomischief, thereby spoiling the fast of the ummah of My beloved Muhammad S.W..

BEST TIMES TO MAKE DUA


Duas

There are certain times Dua is more likely to be accepted by Allah (SWT) as mentioned by Prophet (pbuh). Some of these times are as follows:

1. THE LAST THIRD OF THE NIGHT

The Prophet (pbuh) said: “When it is the last third of the night, our Allah (SWT), the Blessed, the Superior, descends every night to the heaven of the world and says, ‘Is there anyone who invokes Me (demand anything from Me), that I may respond to his invocation; Is there anyone who asks Me for something that I may give (it to) him; Is there anyone who asks My forgiveness that I may forgive him?” (Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 75, Number 333)

Blessings & Rewards of Fasting (Hadith 02)


Dawah & Tabligh, Virtues of Ramadan (Fazail e Aamaal)

Abu Hurayrah relates that Rasulullah (SAW) said, “My Ummah were given five things for Ramadan which were not given to anyone except them. For them, the smell from the mouth of a fasting person is more sweeter to Allah than the fragrant smell of musk. On their behalf the fish in the sea seek forgiveness for the fasting persons until they break their fast. Allah prepares and decorates a special garden in Jannah everyday and then says (to it), “The time is near when faithful servants shall cast aside the great trials of the world and come to you”. In this month (for them) evil-minded Shaytaan is chained so as not to reach unto those evils to which they normally reach during other months besides Ramadan. On the last night of Ramadan they are forgiven”.

The Method of Taubah

Taubah is such a great thing that one can have all one’s sins forgiven through it. If a person always ponders over his condition and knows that at some time or the other one definitely commits a sin, then he will consider taubah to be necessary all the time.

NABI MUSAA AND SHAITAAN


Hazrat Musa (A.S), History & Biography

On the occasion when Nabi Musaa (alayhis salaam) was on his way to Mount Tur to observe I’tikaaf of 40 days, to commune with Allah Ta’ala, and to receive the revelation of the Tauraah, he met an old man sitting on a rock crying profusely. Pitying the old man, Nabi Musaa (alayhis salaam) enquired of the reason for his grief.

The old man replied that he was Shaitaan and he was crying because Allah’s mercy extended on all beings except him. Although he too was Allah’s creature, he is being excluded from Allah’s mercy, hence he was shedding so many tears. Nabi Musaa (alayhis salaam) promised to raise the matter with Allah Ta’ala on Mount Tur.

Visitors to the Holy Tomb Part 1


Chapter 09 - The Aadaab for the Ziyaarat, Dawah & Tabligh, Virtues of Hajj (Fazail e Hajj)

Due to my own weakness I could not fully write the proper aadaab of the presence at Madina. However these points should serve as guide and I appeal to readers to overlook shortcomings. In my humble manner have I tried to stress two things while remaining inside the circle of the Shari’ah.

Firstly, honor and respect and secondly keenness and enthusiasm. It is now my intention to end this chapter with some incidents and stories about visitors to the Holy Tomb of Rasulullah Sal’am so that these may serve as examples to intending visitors. The famous story of Hazrat Utbah Rah, and some others have already been mentioned.
