I’ITIKAAF – SECLUSION IN THE MASJID HADITH NO. 2

Ibn Abbas R.A. relates that Rasulullah S.W. said, “The person performing I’itikaaf remains free from sins, and he is indeed given the same reward as those who do righteous deeds (in spite of not having done those deeds as a result of having been secluded in the musjid)”.                                                                         Reported in Mishkaat from Ibn Majah

COMMENTARY

(Note that one remaining secluded in the musjid is not allowed to depart from there for worldly needs. He may only set forth to the outside for the calls of nature, to perform ablution or ghusl or for attending Jumu-ah when that is not performed in the same musjid, after which he must return forthwith). Now this Hadith points to two great benefits of I’itikaaf.

A Verse Pertaining To the Khutbah of Nikah

Listen now to the third verse recited in the Nikah Khutbah: “believers! Fear Allah Ta’ala and Speak clearly and correctly Attain piety in every walk of life and choose the path of obedience. And when you speak Speak clearly and correctly Converse in such a manner in which love is maintained and all matters remain pleasant. Do not go over the limit, do not approach the boundaries of arguments and fights. Allah Ta’ala will accept your good deeds.

Blessings & Rewards of Fasting (Hadith 04)

Ubaadah bin Saamit (Radhiallaahu Ánhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said one day when Ramadan had drawn near; “The month of Ramadhan, the month of blessings has come to you, wherein Allah turns towards you and sends down to you His special Mercy, forgives your faults, accepts prayers, appreciates your competition for the greatest, good and boasts to the angels about you. So, show to Allah your righteousness; for verily, the most pitiable and unfortunate one is he who is deprived of Allah’s Mercy in this month.

Umme Ayman radiyallâhu ‘anhâ

Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam used to go and visit her occasionally. Once he went to visit her and she offered him something to drink. Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam refused either because he did not feel like drinking anything at that time or because he was fasting. Because of the fact that she had brought up Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam she insisted that he drinks it. Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam used to say that after my real mother, she is my mother. After his demise, Abû Bakr and ‘Umar radiyallâhu ‘anhumâ also used to visit her occasionally. Upon seeing them she used to think of Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam and begin to cry. They should also begin crying.

ISAAL-E-THAWAAB

(1). The reality of Isaal-e-Thawaab is that whatever good deed you do, and it is accepted by Allaah Ta`ala, then you make an intention or a dua that Allaah Ta`ala bestow the reward thereof to some living or dead person. After understanding this definition of Isaal-e-Thawaab, you should know the following three Mas`alahs:

1. The deed which you carry out must be such that you have hope that it can earn you reward. Otherwise, if you cannot get any reward for it then how can you convey the reward to another person? Hence, that action which is contrary to the Shariah or Sunnah, will be deprived of any reward. To expect to convey reward with such an action is having high hopes.

Humbling or lowering yourself

Severing ties with one’s relatives

51. Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “The actions and ‘ibâdât of all the people are presented to Allah every Friday night. The good deeds of a person who severs his ties with his relatives (or does not maintain good relations with them) are not accepted.”

AHADITH concerning the rewards and the punishments for deeds Part 2

Recitation of the Quran

26. Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “The person who recites a single letter of the Quran will receive one reward. And the basic principle with regard to rewards is that they are multiplied ten fold. I do not say that Alif Lâm Mîm is one letter. Instead, Alif is one letter, Lâm is one letter, and Mîm is one letter. Based on this, one will receive 30 rewards.”

REFORMATION OF THE HEART Part 2

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.
