The Ways of Our Beloved Prophet Sallallahu Alayhe Wa Sallam

Akhlaq & Spirituality, Striding in Allah’s Shade - Enriching Lives / Thursday, November 6th, 2008

Now the stimulant for broaching on this intent is very easy and that being: to be always on the stance of asking for something or the other from Allah. Whenever you see somebody virtuous then ask Allah to make you as pious too. Whenever you see somebody in a calamity then ask Allah to save you from it.

Once a Companion radhiallahu anhu asked Rasullallah sallallahu alayhe wa sallam , “O Messenger of Allah! What should I do if there is predicament of rizk and debt?”

Rasullullah sallallahu alayhe wa sallam told a dua: “O Allah! Save me from haram and make halal sufficient for me. And from Your blessing I become so prosperous that I don’t need to ask from anybody else.” (Mishka’at)

On another occasion, Hazrat Ibn-Abbas radhiallahu anhu asked the beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam which Dua he should recite the most. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam told him: “Oh Allah! I seek well-being in this world and the next. O Allah! I ask you for forgiveness and well-being in my religion and in my (life in this) world, in my family, and in my property.”  (Abu Dawood)

What a lovely Dua! Prosperity in Emaan, prosperity in health, prosperity in children, prosperity in family, prosperity in affluence, prosperity in the Hereafter… When a day is hemmed with such wondrous prayers, is it then likely to work loose and unravel?

That is the reason why we find that our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam on every course of his life, used to beseech Allah with phenomenal prayers. Greeting somebody saying Assalam o alikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh, entering the house saying so too. Somebody gives you something you say JazakAllah (May Allah give you better than this). Fulfilling the needs of your body and reciting duas too. While eating, drinking, sleeping, waking, making ablution, entering the house, leaving the house, entering the masjid, leaving the masjid, even while entering the washroom and leaving it. Step via step prayers. So as not to be mindless of Allah and never be driven astray.
