هُوَ اللهﹸالَّذِيْ لآ إِلٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ عَالِمُ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ هُوَ الرَّحْمٰنُ الرَّحِيْمُ○ هُوَ اللهﹸالَّذِي لآ إِلٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْمَلِكُ الْقُدُّوْسُ السَّلَامُ الْمُؤْمِنُ الْمُهَيْمِنُ الْعَزِيْزُ الْجَبَّارُ الْمُتَكَبِّرُ سُبْحَانَ اللهِ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ ○ هُوَ اللهﹸالْخاَلِقُ الْبَارِئُ الْمُصَوِّرُ لَهُ الْأَسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنٰى يُسَبِّحُ لَهُ مَا فِي السَّمٰواتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيْزُ الْحَكِيْمُ

Allah is He, than Whom there is no other god;- Who knows (all things) both secret and open; He, Most Gracious, Most Merciful … Allah is He, than Whom there is no other god;- the Sovereign, the Holy One, the Source of Peace (and Perfection), the Guardian of Faith, the Preserver of Safety, the Exalted in Might, the Superior, the Supreme: Glory to Allah! (High is He) above the partners they attribute to Him … He is Allah, the Creator, the Evolver, the Bestower of Forms (or Colours). To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names: whatever is in the heavens and on earth, doth declare His Praises and Glory: and He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise … (59:22:23:24)

Hazrat Ma’qal bin Yasaar (RadiAllahu Anhu) reports the the Messenger of Allah (SalAllahu Alayhi Wasalam) as saying;“He who recites the last three verses of Surah al-Hashr in the morning after saying; “A’oozu Billaahis -samee’ il-‘aleemi minash-Shaytaan ir-rajeem ” three times (I seek refuge with Allah, the All-Hearing, All-Knowing, from the accursed Shaytaan) for him Allah will appoint seventy-thousand angels to beseech mercy for him until the evening, and if he dies the same day he will be given the status of a martyr, and if he recites the verses in the evening the same will apply to him till morning”[At-Tirmidhi, Daarimi]

“Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala discuses about His Might! … His Perfection! … His Sifaat (Qualities) … He is Allah! … There is no one worthy of worship besides Allah … Allah is the knower of the Unseen (that which is hidden) and the Seen … Allah has knowledge of all those things that have occurred in the past … Allah has knowledge of all that is in the present … Allah has knowledge of all that is going to take place in the future … Allah has knowledge of everything! … Nothing is hidden from Allah”

 He is the King! … The kings of the world are not really kings … They are the creation of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala … and if we call them ‘Kings’, then the ‘King of all Kings‘ is Allah!

 “Allah is most Pure! Allah is free of all defects! Free from imperfection! … Allah is PERFECT!”

Ahaadeeth and Quraanic Ayaat pertaining to the Asma-ul-Husna


Hazrat Abu Huraira Radhiallahu Anhu reported: Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, said: “Allah has ninety-nine Names. Whoever memorizes (and acts upon) them will enter Paradise.” (Sahih Muslim)

And (all) the Most Beautiful Names belong to Allâh, so call on Him by them, (Surat Al-A’raf 7:180)

Allah! Laa ilaaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He)! To Him belong the Best Names. (Surah Taha 20:8)

He is Allâh, the Creator, the Inventor of all things, the Bestower of forms. To Him belong the Best Names . All that is in the heavens and the earth glorify Him. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise. (Surah Al-Hashr 59:24)

Hazrat Abu Huraira Radhiallahu Anhu reported : Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said, “Allah has ninety-nine names, i.e. one-hundred minus one, and whoever knows them will go to Paradise.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari 50:894)

Hazrat Abu Huraira Radhiallahu Anhu reported: Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam as saying: Verily, there are ninety-nine names for Allah, i.e. hundred excepting one. He who enumerates them would get into Paradise. And Hammam has made this addition on the authority of Abu Huraira Radhiallahu Anhu who reported it from Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, that he said: “He is Odd (one) and loves odd number.” (Sahih Muslim 35:6476)

5 Questions Man will be Asked on The Day of Qiyamah

5 Questions Man will be Asked on The Day of Qiyamah

 : عَنِ ابْنِ مَسْعُودٍ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ 

“‏ لاَ تَزُولُ قَدَمَا ابْنِ آدَمَ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ مِنْ عِنْدِ رَبِّهِ حَتَّى يُسْأَلَ عَنْ خَمْسٍ عَنْ عُمْرِهِ فِيمَا أَفْنَاهُ

وَعَنْ شَبَابِهِ فِيمَا أَبْلاَهُ وَمَالِهِ مِنْ أَيْنَ اكْتَسَبَهُ وَفِيمَ أَنْفَقَهُ وَمَاذَا عَمِلَ فِيمَا عَلِمَ ‏”

Hazrat Ibn Mas’ud Radhiallahu Anhu narrated that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said:

“The feet of the son of Adam shall not move from before his Lord on the Day of Judgement, until he is asked about five things : about his life and what he did with it, about his youth and what he wore it out in, about his wealth and how he earned it and spent it upon, and what he did with what he knew (his knowledge).”

Important Advices for After the Month of Ramadaan

bismillahh

وَمَن يُطِعِ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ وَيَخْشَ اللَّهَ وَيَتَّقْهِ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْفَائِزُونَ

And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger and fears Allah and is conscious of Him
– it is those who are the attainers ~ Surah Noor 24:52

During the beautiful month of Ramadaan, we were enjoying our Ibaadat : Quran Tilawat, Taraweeh and other Nawaafil Salaah, Zakaat, Zikrullah, I’tikaaf etc. We sought for and became used to “spiritual nourishment“. We were punctual in seeking our spiritual doses.

In Ramadaan we trained our Nafs to obey Allah Ta’ala, performing righteous deeds, restraining ourselves from Haraam, being generous, displaying good Akhlaaq became part of our lives. Alhamdulillah, we began managing our time very well and began giving preference to our Deeni commitments and duties.

One of the signs that ALLAH loves a person is that ALLAH makes Obedience to HIM very easy for that person.

In Ramadaan we attached and connected ourselves to ALLAH. Indeed after establishing SUCH a strong connection, we would be foolish to abandon our efforts (mujaahadah) and sever that connection! Consider effort put into constructing a ten thousand piece puzzle or a fantastic high-rise building and upon completion, the owner breaking or bull-dozing it …. Certainly this would be inconceivable! Whilst these are examples of Dunya, what then of this bond which has been established with ALLAH?

We have built Spiritual Noor within Our Hearts …

We have through the Fadhl and Karam of ALLAH endeavoured to remove the anger, pride, enmity and jealousy from our hearts and this has been replaced by effulgence of the LOVE of ALLAH and Rasulullah صلي الله عليه و سلم

It is mentioned in the Hadith Shareef that on the Day of Eid, there are Angels deputed in the beginning of the streets who proclaim and shout out :

‘ O Muslims! Proceed now to an ALLAH who is All Gracious; An ALLAH who gives abundant rewards on Good deeds. You were commanded to keep Roza in the Day and you obeyed ALLAH’ Upon the termination of the Eid Salaat, the Angels say: Return to your homes in the condition that Your Rabb has forgiven you. Now come and collect your prizes, today is the Day of prize giving’

Indeed ALLAH Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala loves us. The Munificence, Kindness, Generosity and Tolerance of ALLAH is incomparable and cannot be matched. Despite our disobedience and sins, HE still overlooks our weaknesses and continues to shower His Ni’mats upon us. ALLAH does not need us. We are desperately in need of HIM and yet we still disobey HIS Commands!

How Loving ALLAH is for HE still calls out ‘… Is there anybody seeking forgiveness that I may forgive him? … Come, I am willing to forgive.’ ALLAH is TOO Kind … Not only does HE Forgive us when we make sincere taubah, but HE actually CHANGES our bad deeds into good deeds!

During Ramadaan :
– we were kind to our brethren, we shared what we had at Iftaar
– we desired to help others and looked for opportunities to do so
– we engaged in giving charity
– we avoided RIBA and Zinaa and made Taubatun Nasuha
– we tried to develop good  akhlaaq and followed the sunnah
– we stayed away from evil company and found ourselves among the pious
– we engaged in many nafl acts of Ibaadat
– we read and listened to recitation of Quran e Majeed
– we stayed up at night, after long days at work, in Taraweeh Salaah and sought forgiveness from ALLAH TA’AALA.

We still have a long way to go … but, we have made a marvellous start and ALLAH will certainly make that distance short and easy for us. When we turn to HIM, HE comes running to us!

Just as we had enjoyment in our ibaadat and obedience in Ramadaan, we will also have enjoyment outside of Ramadaan, Insha-Allah. Indeed the enjoyment in the Path of ALLAH is far more enjoyable than ‘enjoyment’ sought in the path to Shaytaan. The Path to ALLAH brings sweetness and sukoon in the heart … Such beauty that the languages of the world fail to describe. The path to Shaytaan leads to restlessness, anxiety and eventual destruction!

Hence, the lesson in Surah Noor is most apt for us now after Ramadaan ~ Obey Allah, Obey Rasulullah Sallallaahu alayhi wasallam, making sincere Tauba for over past sins, being cautious with our future.

Barakah in Ramadaan

bismillahh

WHAT IS BARAKAH?

Barakah is a Divine Gift from Allah Ta’ala. He is the Bestower of all things. He is the Source of all Barakah.

تَبَارَكَ الَّذِي بِيَدِهِ الْمُلْكُ وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ 

Blessed is He in whose hand is the Dominion,

and He is All Able over all things. ~ Surah Mulk 67:1

Definition of Barakah

والبركة ~ هي ثبوت الخير الإلهي في الشيء؛

فإنها إذا حلت في قليل كثرته، وإذا حلت في كثير نفع،

ومن أعظم ثمار البركة في الأمور كلها إستعمالها في طاعة الله عز وجل

Barakah is the establishment of Divine Goodness to a thing,

so if it occurs in something little, it increases it. And if

it occurs in something much, it benefits. And the greatest

fruits of Barakah in all things is to use that Barakah

in the obedience of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala”

BARAKAH IN RAMADAAN

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said: “Oh people! A very blessed, auspicious and great month dawns over you.

شَهْرٌ عَظِيمٌ مُبَارَكٌ

Shahrun Azeemun Mubaarakun

A month full of blessings, in which there is Barakah in the Rozi (sustenance) and livelihood of the Believer. The Hadith states:

شَهْرٌ يُزَادُ فِيهِ رِزْقُ الْمُؤْمِنِ

Shahrun yuzaadu fihi rizqul mumin”

The Rizq (sustenance) of a Believer is increased (multiplied) in the month of Ramadaan. We see that the moment Ramadaan commences, our dastarkhaans and tables are filled with an abundance of food. We normally don’t see so many different types and quantities of food in other months.

Not only is there Barakah in our sustenance, but there is also an increase in our Ibaadah (worship). Normally it is difficult to engage in extra Nawaafil (optional) Salaah, but in the month of Ramadaan, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala has made it such that He gives us the strength and the Himmat (courage) to excel in Ibaadah. We are focussed with Tilaawat (recitation) of the Qur’aan, Zikrullah and Dua (especially at the time of Iftaar, before Maghrib). The atmosphere is filled with Noor (illumination) and one can actually feel and sense the Barakah of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala cascading down.

Furthermore, there is also ‘Barakah in the reward‘, which is significantly multiplied when performing good deeds. One who performs a Nafl act receives the reward equivalent of having performed a Fard act (out of the month of Ramadaan). Then what about the reward of performing a ‘Fard’ in Ramadaan?

The Hadith of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam states :

مَنْ تَقَرَّبَ فِيهِ بِخَصْلَةٍ مِنْ خِصَالِ الْخَيْرِ كَانَ كَمَنْ أَدَّى فَرِيضَةً فِيمَا سِوَاهُ

وَمَنْ أَدَّى فِيهِ فَرِيضَةً كَمَنْ أَدَّى سَبْعِينَ فَرِيضَةً فِيمَا سِوَاهُ ،

Whoever draws nearer (to Allah) by performing any of the optional

good deeds (Nafl) in (this month) shall receive the same reward as

performing an obligatory deed (Fard) at any other time, and whoever discharges an obligatory deed (Fard) in (this month) shall receive the

reward of performing seventy obligations (70 Fard) at any other time.
~ Ibn Khuzaymah

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala multiplies any Fard (compulsory) act performed in the month of Ramadaan by seventy times!

SOME WAYS TO ACQUIRE BARAKAH IN RAMADAAN

• 1 ~ By Adopting Imaan and Taqwa 

The fundamental ingredients for Barakah are Imaan (Faith) and Taqwa (Piety).

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala says :

وَلَوْ أَنَّ أَهْلَ الْقُرَىٰ امَنُوا وَاتَّقَوْا

“Walow Anna Ahlal Qura Aamanu Wattaqaw”

And if only the people of the cities had believed

and feared Allah, ~ Surah Al A’raaf 7:96

لَفَتَحْنَا عَلَيْهِم بَرَكَاتٍ مِّنَ السَّمَاءِ وَالْأَرْضِ

“Lafatahna Alayhim Barakaatin Minas Samaai Wal Ardhi”

We would have opened upon them Blessings from the

heaven and the earth; ~ Surah Al A’raaf 7:96

The explanation of this is that if the villagers, in all those towns around Makkah brought Imaan, had Taqwa, fulfilled the injunctions of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala and refrained from all sins, then they would have received beneficial rain for their crops to grow.

They would have enjoyed a prosperous life with fresh and abundant produce. However, they rejected Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala and hence, He punished them. He totally destroyed them.

In a Hadith-e-Qudsi, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala says :

إِنَّي إِذَا اُطِعْتُ رَضِيتُ

Inni Iza Uti’tu Radhitu ~

“(O my Servants)! When I am obeyed
I become happy (with you)”

وَإِذَا رَضِيتُ بَارَكْتُ

Wa Iza Radhitu Baaraktu ~

“When I become happy, then I Bless you”

وَلَيْسَ لِبَرَكَتَيْ نِهَايَةٌ 

Wa Laysa Li Barakatee Nihaayah ~

“There is no limit to My Barakah”

When Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala decides to give, then those Blessings come pouring down on a person. There is no limit to those Blessings. This is because Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala is the Source of all Blessing. Allah Ta’ala says :

تَبَارَكَ الَّذِي بِيَدِهِ الْمُلْكُ 

“Tabaarakal lazi Biyadihil Mulk”

Blessed is the ONE in whose HANDS is the Sovereignty

and in another verse :

فَتَبَارَكَ اللَّهُ أَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِينَ

“Fatabaarak~Allahu Ahsanul Khaliqeen

 So Most Blessed is Allah, The Best of Creators

Allah Ta’ala is the Source of all Blessing. The ability to grow is only from Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala. Productivity, being prosperous and having plentiful – not having a life of loss or suffering wretchedness and misery – is a blessing from Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala Alone.

He grants it to His Believing, loyal and obedient servants. Imaan, Taqwa and good deeds lead to Barakah in one’s life. A sinful person will live a life void of Barakah. He will suffer wretchedness and misery.

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan :

وَمَنْ أَعْرَضَ عَنْ ذِكْرِي فَإِنَّ لَهُ مَعِيشَةً ضَنْكًا

And whoever turns away from My remembrance – indeed,

he will have a narrow life ~ Surah Taha 20:124

That person who turns away from the remembrance of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, for him is a miserable, narrow and wretched life. He does not enjoy peace of mind, nor serenity, despite having abundant material possessions in his life. His life is narrow and tight. Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala deprives him of true Barakah. He is kept far away from the blessings of Allah Ta’ala. Some `Ulama have explained that the opposite of Barakah is L’anat (Curse), i.e. being far away from Allah’s Mercy and Blessings. May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala protect us all.

• 2 ~ Joining FamilyTies

Barakah in one’s sustenance and life is achieved by joining family ties.

قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم

 مَنْ أَحَبَّ أَنْ يُبْسَطَ لَهُ فِي رِزْقِهِ، وَيُنْسَأَ لَهُ فِي أَثَرِهِ، فَلْيَصِلْ رَحِمَهُ‏

Whoever loves that he be granted more wealth and that his

lease of life be prolonged then he should keep good relations

with his Kith and kin.“~ Sahih Al Bukhari

The meaning of Barakah in Rozi :

A person may only possess little, but it will suffice all his needs and be of great benefit to him. A little food goes a long way and gives one abundant energy to obey Allah Ta’ala. One will be content and happy with one’s little earnings and not become overwhelmed by greed and avarice.

Remember a person’s earnings could be meagre, but it could bring him abundant happiness and comfort in his life, if he has been blessed with Barakah.

And, Barakah in life span :

This does not necessarily mean an extension in his lifespan, rather he will find blessings in his time. When one is able to obey Allah and make great contributions for His Deen within a short and limited lifespan, then he has been bestowed with Barakah. He is able to achieve in a short life, considerable amount of work, that would normally require one to have a very long life span. The examples of our Salafe Saaliheen are glaring examples of this Barakah.

• 3 ~ Giving Sadaqah (Charity) 

Giving Sadaqah (Charity) is another way of acquiring Barakah. Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala says in the Holy Qur’aan :

يَمْحَقُ اللَّهُ الرِّبَا وَيُرْبِي الصَّدَقَاتِ

“Yamhaqullaahur Riba Wa Yurbis Sadaqaat”

Allah destroys interest and gives increase for charities

~ Surah Al Baqarah 2:276

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala destroys interest and increases Sadaqah. In other words the effects of Sadaqah is that there is Barakah in the remainder of your wealth. When you took out money and gave it to somebody, your “eyes” saw your bank balance decreasing, but Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala promises Yurbis Sadaqaat, i.e. HE will increase the wealth that you have.

You may not see your money increasing, but Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala will most definitely place Barakah in what you have. So you will be able to fulfill all your expenses, tasks, responsibilities, and requirements with the money that you have.

On the other hand Yamhaqullahur Riba, if you are indulging in usury and interest, outwardly you are gaining in that your bank balance is rising, but Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala says that HE will destroy that wealth. You will be deprived of the Barakah of that wealth. How many a rich person has complained: “I have all the material possessions in the world, still whatever money I have got is just going into medical expenses, accidents, operations, sickness … it is just being wasted.”

Such a person does not enjoy his wealth.

• 4 ~ Seeking Repentance

Another way of gaining Barakah is through Istighfaar (Repentance).

قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ  صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم 

مَنْ لَزِمَ الاِسْتِغْفَارَ جَعَلَ اللَّهُ لَهُ مِنْ كُلِّ ضِيقٍ مَخْرَجًا

 وَمِنْ كُلِّ هَمٍّ فَرَجًا وَرَزَقَهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لاَ يَحْتَسِبُ‏

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: If anyone continually

asks for pardon, Allah will make a way out of every distress,

a relief from every anxiety, and will provide for him

from unseen sources ~ Sunan Abi Dawud

Mun Lazimal Istighfaar : That person who adheres (clings) to Istighfaar, seeks repentance from Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, makes Taubah, has a penitent heart, and turns to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala saying Astaghfirullah sincerely – then Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala says : “We will make an opening for him from all grief, worry and sorrow and will make an opening for him from all difficult situations”.

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala will even provide for him from unseen sources. We should have full Yaqeen (certitude) in the words of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.

• 5 ~ Partaking of Sehri

Hazrat Anas bin Malik Radiyallahu Anhu narrated that whenever they were fasting, Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam advised :

تَسَحَّرُوا فَإِنَّ فِي السُّحُورِ بَرَكَةً

“Partake of Sehri, for indeed there is a Blessing

in the Sehri.” ~ Tirmidhi

Tasahharu ~ ‘Make Sehri’ … because there is Barakah in partaking of Sehri. Even though we may have eaten just a few dates at Suhoor, the blessings of partaking of Sehri, enable one to keep the fast the entire day without getting hungry.

AN INSIGHTFUL ANALOGY PORTRAYING BARAKAH IN RAMADAAN

Our Salafe Sawliheen (pious predecessors) would prepare for Ramadaan well in advance. They would actually sense the Barakah of Ramadaan approaching and await the coming of Ramadaan, long before it commenced.

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam himself, used to recite this Dua when the moon of Rajab was sighted, in anticipation of Ramadaan :

اللَّهُمَّ بَارِكْ لَنَا فِي رَجَبَ ، وَشَعْبَانَ ، وَبَلِّغْنَا رَمَضَانَ

Allahumma baa-rik-lanaa fee-rajaba wa Sha’baana

wa bal-lig-naa Ramadhaana”

“O Allah, make the months of Rajab and Sha’baan blessed for us, and let us reach the month of Ramadhan.”~Tabarani

The `Ulama have also mentioned : The effect and Barakah of this one month, when spent properly, is such, that it wipes out all the minor sins of the person since the previous Ramadaan. The doors of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala’s Rahmah, Maghfirah and Barakah are widely opened!

Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel Rahmatullahi Alayh gave a beautiful example with respect to Barakah in Ramadaan. He said: “At the time of drought there is scarcity of water and every drop of it is precious. If there is a sudden downpour of rain, people will rush out with their buckets and fill them with this valuable rainwater. However, if any person goes outside with his bucket turned ‘upside-down’, then he will return with a completely ’empty’ bucket. Everyone will ridicule him and call him a fool!”

Similarly, in the month of Ramadaan, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala’s Barakah pours down in torrents. It comes down in full force! We do not possess those spiritual eyes to “see” that Barakah coming down. However, we should treasure and value Ramadaan and not spend a second of it incorrectly, lest the Barakah is lost.

In order to enjoy Barakah, a person must :

~ Have Imaan, Taqwa and do righteous deeds

~ Join family ties

~Give Sadaqah

~ Accomplish his tasks in the early hours of the morning

~ Make Istighfaar

~ Partake of sehri

~ Say Bismillah when eating

~ Eat meals together

~ Eat from the sides of the plate

~ Lick one’s fingers after eating

~ Make Salaam when entering the home

However, staying away from all sins is of paramount importance, because sins obliterate Barakah.

Living our lives according to the commandments of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala will bring us Barakah in our lives, our time, our actions, our dealings, our wealth, our families, and in all our activities Insha Allah.

May Allah Ta’ala grant us Barakah in Dunya and Aakhirah … Aameen

The Harms of Sins

bismillahh

HARMS OF SINS

by ~ Moulana Naeem Motala DB

Alhamdulillah, during the blessed month of Ramadaan, most Muslims make a concerted effort to abstain from sins. This is done in order to attain the Pleasure of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala and in the hope of reaping the innumerable promised rewards of the Mubarak month. Whilst those who exercise self-restraint and avoid sinning, experience a Noor (light) entering the heart … those who are habitual and irresolute (attached to sinning), find themselves engulfed by the darkness of sin.(May Allah Taala protect us). While many try to give up sin, some believers succeed in doing so immediately and completely, whilst others struggle and give up sinning slowly (in increments) and with difficulty.

Hazrat Abdullah bin Abbas Radiyallahu Anhu (an illustrious young Sahabi of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) was once asked:

” رَجُلٌ كَثِيرُ الْعَمَلِ كَثِيرُ الذُّنُوبِ ، وَرَجُلٌ قَلِيلُ الْعَمَلِ قَلِيلُ الذُّنُوبِ ؟” 

Is a man who has performed very little Nafl Ibaadah (over and above his Fardh) and engaged in very few sins, (better) than the one who has performed many good deeds and just as many sins?

Hazrat Abdullah bin Abbas Radiyallahu Anhu responded > “لا أَعْدِلُ بِالسَّلامَةِ شَيْئًا “

I can never equate anything to something which is free and void of sins ie. something which is safe from sins  ~ (Baihaqi)

Thus, one who engages in very little Nafl (optional) Ibaadah but is extremely cautious about engaging in sin cannot be compared to the one who is very punctual in Nafl Ibaadah, yet careless about engaging in sin. Whilst the former has earned the Pleasure of ALLAH Ta’ala through obedience and restraint, the latter has angered Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala by lack of concern and violation of major commands.

Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala has said :

“ام حَسِبَ الَّذِينَ اجْتَرَحُوا السَّيِّئَاتِ أَن نَّجْعَلَهُمْ كَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ أَمْ سَوَاءً مَّحْيَاهُمْ وَمَمَاتُهُمْ ۚ .سَاءَ مَا يَحْكُمُونَ

Or do those who commit evils think We will make them like those who have believed and done righteous deeds – [make them] equal in their life and their death? Evil is that which they judge ~ Surah Al-Jathiyah 45:21

Although we are all living in the same Dunya (world) and travelling toward the same Aakhirah (Hereafter) – those who perpetrate sins are not equal to those who believe and engage in righteous deeds.  The life and death of an evil sinner is not the same as the life and death of a righteous believer; nor will it ever be!

SINS ARE LIKENED TO THE EFFECTS OF POISON IN THE BODY

Allamah Ibnul Qayyim Rahmatullahi Alayh said:

أن المعاصي تُضعف القلب

“Innal ma’aasi thudh-‘iful quloob”
Sins weaken the heart.

When a person becomes defiant and persists in perpetrating sins, then that person’s desire for disobedience increases, the desire to repent decreases and is eventually removed from the heart completely. Sins weaken the heart and extract from a person the Iraadah of Taubah (intention of repenting). A time comes when his heart is so corroded and engulfed with sins, that the will and resolve of the heart is weakened, to the extent that the desire of turning to Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala never enters a person. In reality, his heart becomes incapacitated and a Hijaab (veil), is put between him and Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala. Thus, he becomes deprived of worshiping Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala and is far removed from the Mercy and forgiveness of ALLAH. (May Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala protect us all)

Scholars have thus written that the effect of sins upon the heart is like that of poison upon the body. Just as poison kills a person, sins kill the heart.  When a person knows the harmful effects of a lethal poison he is very unlikely to consume it. Similarly, if one understands the extremely harmful effects of sins, one can make a sincere effort to refrain from engaging in them.

BE IT A KABEERAH (BIG) SIN OR A SAGHEERAH (SMALL) SIN

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ مَسْعُودٍ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ إِيَّاكُمْ وَمُحَقَّرَاتِ الذُّنُوبِ فَإِنَّهُنَّ يَجْتَمِعْنَ عَلَى الرَّجُلِ حَتَّى يُهْلِكْنَهُ

Hazrat Abdullah ibn Mas’ud Radiyallahu Anhu reported that Rasullulah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: “Beware of minor sins. Verily, they pile upon a man until he is destroyed.”~ (Musnad Ahmad)

A Mu’min (believer) should never look at how small or great a sin is. Rather, he should look at the Greatness and Might of the One whom he is disobeying … Almighty ALLAH!

Hazrat Abdullah bin Abbas Radiyallahu Anhu had also mentioned : “Oh sinner! Do not feel safe from the evil consequence of sins”~(Al Hilya)

Many a times we feel that it is just a “minor” sin. Ulema and Scholars have after categorizing major and minor sins, clearly mentioned :

“لا تنظر إلى صغر المعصية، ولكن انظر إلى عظمة من عصيت”

Do not look at how small your sin may be, but consider the Greatness of the One you are disobeying. ~ Al-Baihaqee’s ‘Shu’abul Eemaan’ (5/430

At the time of transgressing the commands of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala, if a person’s heart does not tremble out of the fear of Allah (who is constantly watching him), nor does he feel even a minute amount of shyness for the angels (who are witnessing the transgression), then that which comes along with the sin is greater (in evil) than the sin itself.

At the time of indulging in sin, a person is sometimes so caught up that he forgets that Allah sees him. In his deluded state, he feels some type of achievement or accomplishment as a result of having engaged in the sin. His ecstacy at being able to commit a certain sin blinds him to the consequences and his potential outcome on the day of Qiyamah! We are all aware that sins are punishable but are somehow so deluded and relaxed about it, that we think nothing is going to happen!

In more extreme cases, a person sometimes becomes sad when the opportunity of committing a sin is lost! He exhibits remorse at missing the prospect of disobeying Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala! Further, when he is committing the sin, the type of fear that overcomes him is not fear for Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala, but fear that people might catch him red-handed! Verily one has to be a servant and slave of only Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala and not anyone or anything else.

When indulging in sin, such a person’s heart is enveloped in Qillatul Haya (having very little modesty) and it is not disturbed by his forgetfulness of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala. The person is unmoved by his forgetfulness of the ONE Who created him – the ONE who provides for, nourishes, sustains, cares for and helps him. Such a person is blinded to the innumerable bounties from Allah Ta’ala and steeped in His disobedience. Certainly, this is not the character of a Mu’mim!

Hadhrat Wahab Radiyallahu Anhu narrates in a Hadith-e-Qudsi that ALLAH Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala said to Bani Israeel :

” اني اذا اطعت رضيت واذا رضيت باركت وليس لبركتي نهاية واني اذا عصيت غضبت واذا غضبت لعنت ولعنتي تبلغ السابع من الولد.”

“O my Bandah (Servants)! When I am Obeyed, I become pleased; when I become pleased I grant Barakah. When I am disobeyed, I become Wrathful and I curse (the disobedient ones). The effect of My La’nat (Curse) extends to seven generations.”~ (Ahmad)

A person who is sinful and who habitually disobeys Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, will thus suffer a life of wretchedness and misery. Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala is MOST Merciful and continuously overlooks sins and gives us countless opportunities to make amends; but when a person persists in sin, then Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala becomes SO Angry that He curses! … And the curse of AllahSubhaanahu Wa Ta’ala is so severe, that it extends for several generations!

THE ABOUNDING MERCY OF ALLAH SUBHAANAHU WA TA’ALA DESPITE OUR DISOBEDIENCE

No matter how much and how great our sins may seem, the vast and abounding Mercy of Allah knows no limits.

A bedouin once entered the Musjid of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. When the Salaah terminated, he cried out from behind the Sahabah (RA):

“اللَّهُمَّ ارْحَمْنِي وَمُحَمَّدًا وَلاَ تَرْحَمْ مَعَنَا احدا”
Allahummar Hamni Wa Muhammada Wa la Tarham Ma’ana ahada : Oh Allah! Have mercy on me and on Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) and do not have mercy on anyone else

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam turned towards him and said: >”‏ لَقَدِ احْتَظَرْتَ وَاسِعًا”

You have narrowed (constricted) something that is vast” ie : the Mercy of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala.

Rasullulah  Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam further explained that Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala has divided His Mercy into one hundred parts, of which He retained ninety-nine parts and sent down only one part to earth.

Through the one percent of Mercy that Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala has sent down in the world, every living being (mankind, Jinn, animals and insects) all display Muhabbah (mutual love, compassion and kindness for one another), and through it, even wild animals care for their young. Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala has held back the remaining ninety-nine percent of His Mercy for His slaves on the day of Qiyamah! There is no doubt, that the Mercy of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala is vast and Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala will definitely forgive us, provided we sincerely seek His forgiveness.

TURNING TO ALLAH SUBHAANAHU WA TA’ALA WITH TAUBAH AND ISTIGHFAAR ERASES SINS

In another Hadith narrated by Hazrat Abu Hurairah Radiallahu Anhu, RasulullahSallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said :

كُلُّ أَمَّتِى مُعَافًى إِلاَّ الْمُجَاهِرِينَ ، وَإِنَّ مِنَ الْمَجَانَةِ أَنْ يَعْمَلَ الرَّجُلُ بِاللَّيْلِ عَمَلاً ، ثُمَّ يُصْبِحَ وَقَدْ سَتَرَهُ اللَّهُ ، فَيَقُولَ يَا فُلاَنُ عَمِلْتُ الْبَارِحَةَ كَذَا وَكَذَا ، وَقَدْ بَاتَ يَسْتُرُهُ رَبُّهُ وَيُصْبِحُ يَكْشِفُ سِتْرَ اللهِ عَنْهُ

“Every one of my followers will be forgiven except those who expose (openly) their wrongdoings. An example of this is that of a man who commits a sin at night which Allah has covered for him, and in the morning, he would say (to people) “I committed such and such sin last night,” while Allah had kept it a secret. During the night Allah had covered it up, but in the morning this sinner tears up the ‘cover’ provided by Allah, himself.” ~ Al-Bukhari

Regrettably, we have become very brazen and bold in committing sins openly! When a person indulges in sins, he does not realise the numerous harms and misfortune those sins generate.

Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala, out of His Infinite Grace, Kindness and Mercy, conceals and hides the sins of the Mujaahiroon (those bold sinners who commit sinful acts privately and then announce them shamelessly). Nobody had seen him committing a sin, but this foolish person, goes out in the morning and tears the veil placed by Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala concealing the sin from the eyes of the public and society. Essentially, the person ‘brags’ about the very sin which Allah Ta’ala had concealed for him at night. 

When the heart has reached such a low state, then it eventually becomes diseased and weakened and the person will see ‘falsehood as truth’ and ‘truth as falsehood’. Due to his diseased heart he will find flaws in the Hadith and Sunnah, and will be blinded to the sublime way of life of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. The heart actually experiences a change called Khasful Qalb: It sinks lower and lower and becomes debased causing a person to bask in sins. The person will be constantly engaged in clubbing, drinking alchohol, womanizing, gambling and viewing pornography. Sins will manifest in every limb of his body and he will take pleasure remaining immersed in a filthy and immoral life.

When this connection with Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala is broken through engaging in a multitude of sins, then a person is overcome with the reality of Wahsha (estrangement): when one feels forlorn and wretched and that special contact with Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala is completely lost. Because he has forgotten Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala, in turn, Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala ignores him. When the soul goes down this dark path, there is no comfort or enjoyment in life, nor enjoyment in one’s Ibaadah. 

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala  mentioned (in the Quran) :

نَسُوا اللَّهَ فَنَسِيَهُمْ

They have forgotten Allah, so He hath forgotten them (ignored them) ~ Surah Taubah 9:67

A person who saved himself from sins in this world deeming nothing to be minor – but rather – out of worry and concern, imagined all sins as major, will earn the Mercy of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala on the day of Qiyamah. On the opposite end of the spectrum, one who is a Faasiq/Faajir (open sinner) and thinks nothing of his sins (major or minor) faces destruction on the Day of Qiyamah. The former is like one who sees every sin as a huge mountain hovering over his head, threatening to crush him, whilst the latter sees every sin as a harmless, minuscule insect which can bring no harm. Foolish indeed is the Faasiq!

Whilst sins are dangerous and lead to destruction, in many instances, the person may have fallen into sin due to misguidance, error, or negligence. Thus it is not appropriate to look down upon a sinner with pride and contempt. One should make abundant Shukr to Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala for protection from falling into that sin and also for concealing whatever sins one has committed!

One can always escape the shackles of sins and be free through sincere repentance. The doors of Taubah are widely open to any person who turns to Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala, till before he leaves this world. It is open right until the soul reaches the throat (at the time of death). The Mercy of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala is not restricted, and nobody should despair of receiving it. Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala will accept the Taubah of every person provided that it is sincere. However great the sin is, it is not greater than the Mercy of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala!

….

10 POINT SUMMARY

1 – Abstaining from sin brings Noor in the heart, whereas habitually engaging in sin steeps ones heart in darkness.

2- Engaging in sins increasing the propensity for sinning and decreasing the propensity for repentance – sins are therefore like a poison which kills the heart.

3- Do not be careless about minor sins for they pile up quickly and lead to destruction.

4- Do not look at whether a sin is minor or major but rather look at the Greatness and Might of the ONE Who is being disobeyed: ALLAH Subhaanahu WA Ta’ala 

5- The anger and curse of ALLAH Ta’ala upon the shameless habitual sinner may affect generations to come.

6- ALLAH Ta’ala is Most Merciful and loves to forgive the sinner who turns to HIM in sincere repentance.

7- The Mercy of ALLAH Ta’ala is infinitely vast – and of all HIS Mercy only 1% has reached the Earth and 99% is reserved for the Aakhira.

8 – Persistence in sins causes a veil to be drawn over the heart preventing one from repentance, forgiveness, enjoyment in life.

9- It is inappropriate to look down upon a sinner – it is best to make Shukr for being saved from such sins.

10- The doors of Taubah are always open right till mauth and ALLAH Subhaanahu WA Ta’ala accepts the sincere repentance of every person who turns to HIM. No matter how great the sin, the MERCY of ALLAH is undoubtedly far Greater.

A Poet says :

“I find it so strange that a person says, “I remembered my Beloved”

Is your Beloved such a person, that you ‘forget’ and you have to ‘remember’?

A persons Beloved is in his thoughts and mind all the time … If you love Rasulullah Sallallaahu alayhi Wasallam and have a Kaamil Imaan then you will remember Rasulullah Sallallaahu alayhi Wasallam all the time … You would not need to be reminded of him …

It is his right over us that we should send abundant Durood Shareef upon him regularly…

May Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala give us the Taufeeq to increase our Durood and Salaam upon Rasulullah Sallallaahu alayhi Wasallam every single day.

We claim to be Aashiq’s (lovers) of Rasulullah Sallallaahu alayhi Wasallam, yet we fail to even move our tongues in praise of Rasulullah Sallallaahu alayhi Wasallam?

Rasulullah Sallallaahu alayhi Wasallam mentioned : “The one in whose presence I am mentioned and does not send blessings on me, is a miser.” ~ Tirmidhi

Embracing Ramadaan ~ The Ladder to Taqwa

by ~ Moulana Naeem Motala  DB

 

Right now each one of us who are the reciters of the Kalimah ~ La ilaha illallah, should be experiencing some type of enjoyment and ecstasy knowing that this great important guest, this Mehmaan, is at our doorstep!

We should be earnestly awaiting the arrival of the month of Ramadaan and embrace this golden opportunity to become a ‘True Friend’ of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala.


In this sacred month, Allah’s Barakah (blessings) and Rahmah (Mercy) pours down in torrents. We should treasure and value Ramadaan and not spend a second incorrectly … Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala has created us for the purpose of Ibaadat, and one should observe one’s fast (roza), recite the Qur’aan in abundance, read one’s Salaah timeously, abstain from all types of evil and not indulge in any Haraam to reap the full benefit of this auspicious visitor …

For eleven months we know what our condition is … but come the month of Ramadaan, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala commands us to refrain from things that are ‘Halaal” and permissible (eating, drinking, sexual intercourse with ones spouse) … so it becomes so much more important to refrain from that which is ‘Haraam’ (lies, deceit, cheating, backbiting, fighting, anger, pride) …

The first ten days of Ramadaan is a time when Allah’s Mercy is descending … In the second ten days, Allah forgives, and the last ten days, Allah emancipates souls from the fire of Jahannum … Allah loves us! Therefore, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala has given us the month of Ramadaan as a chance to come closer and closer to Him and forgives us over and over again … With so many opportunities awarded to us, we should be determined and make sincere attempts to treat this Ramadaan with a different mindset and climb this ladder to Taqwa!

We feel that Ramadaan is only about fasting and reading Taraweeh … but beyond that, the real purpose (asal maqsad-original objective) of Ramdaan is to gain ‘Taqwa’… One has to obey what Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala has commanded, abide by those laws, execute those injunctions and refrain from all those things that Allah has made Haraam upon us … These practices in conjunction with each other, gives us Taqwa … Otherwise, we accumulate this Noor (light) in ourselves, but the moment we turn to Sin and Haraam whilst we are fasting, this Noor will disappear …

What is the Reward for Fasting?

 

The Hadith of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam explains : If a person does any good deed (Salaah, Zakaat, Sadaqa, Hajj, Umrah etc), then you will attain Sawaab (reward) and it is multiplied accordingly … but, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala does not stipulate an amount of Sawaab for fasting … We don’t know how much Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala in His ‘Immeasurable Mercy’ will give us for this act of Ibaadat (worship) … Why? … When a person is performing various good deeds (Salaah, Zakaat, Sadaqa, Hajj, Umrah etc) the physical action of performing those deeds are apparent …however, fasting is ‘concealed and hidden!’ … Therefore in Roza (fasting) there is this extra Ikhlaas (sincerity) in the person … He is doing it for the sake of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, and is enduring this hardship on his Nafs …

 

Allah says  :  وانا اجزي به

Wa ana ajzee bihi’

I Myself, will reward the fasting person …

Reciting ‘SubhanAllah’ is more beloved to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam than all that the sun has risen over [1*]

Reciting SubhaanAllah fills half the scales (Mizaan) on the day of Aakhirah [2*]

Whoever says just ’one’ SubhaanAllah, a date-palm tree is planted for him in Paradise [3*]

Reciting SubhaanAllah Wa Bihamdihi SubhaanAllahil Azeem are two expressions which are most Beloved to Allah, are light on the tongue, but heavy on the scales (of Qiyamah) [4*]

No person will bring any deed more virtuous on the day of Qiyamah than recitation of SubhanAllahi wa bihamdihi. [5*]

A person who recites SubhanAllahi wa bihamdihi 100 times a day, even if he has committed sins as much as the the foam of an ocean, still he will be forgiven [6*]

A person who recites SubhanAllahi wa bihamdihi 100 times a day, then, 1000 good deeds (hasanah) are written for him and 1000 (minor) sins of his are forgiven [7*]

SubhanAllahi wa bihamdihi is the Tasbeeh that Allah Ta’ala chose for His Angels. [8*]

A person who recites ‘Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi, `adada khalqihi, wa ridha nafsihi, wa zinata `arshihi, wa midada kalimaatihi [ I Glorify Allah with His praise, as many times as the number of His creatures, in amounting to His  Pleasure, equal to the weight of His Throne and equal to the ink used in recording the words (for His Praise)]; three times every morning outweighs all other Wazaaif/Azkaar [9*]


Reciting ‘SubhaanAllah, Wal-Hamdu-Lillah, Wa la ilaaha illAllah, wallahu Akbar’ is most beloved to Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala [10*]

Reciting 10 times Subhan Allah, 10 times Alhamdulillah and 10 times Allahu Akbar after every Fard Salaah [11*]


Reciting, SubhanAllah, Alhamdulillah and Allahu Akbar, 33 times each, after every Fard Salaah, attains lofty ranks in the Aakhirah [12*]


When a persons reads ‘SubhaanAllah, Wal-Hamdu-Lillah, Wa la ilaha ilAllah, wa Allahu Akbar’ then all his (minor) sins are shed off his body, like the leaves of a tree fall down [13*]

عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ذَاتَ يَوْمٍ لأَصْحَابِهِ ‏ “‏ قُولُوا سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ مِائَةَ مَرَّةٍ مَنْ قَالَهَا مَرَّةً كُتِبَتْ لَهُ عَشْرًا وَمَنْ قَالَهَا عَشْرًا كُتِبَتْ لَهُ مِائَةً وَمَنْ قَالَهَا مِائَةً كُتِبَتْ لَهُ أَلْفًا وَمَنْ زَادَ زَادَهُ اللَّهُ وَمَنِ اسْتَغْفَرَ غَفَرَ اللَّهُ لَهُ ‏“‏ ‏ ‏.‏

وعن أم المؤمنيين جويرية بنت الحارث رضي الله عنها أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم خرج من عندها بكرة حين صلى الصبح وهي في مسجدها، ثم رجع بعد أن أضحي وهي جالسة، فقال‏:‏ ‏”‏مازلت على الحالة التي فارقت عليها‏؟‏‏“‏ قالت‏:‏ نعم، فقال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم‏:‏ ‏”‏لقد كنت بعدك أربع كلمات ثلاث مرات، لو وزنت بما قلت منذ اليوم لوزنتهن‏:‏ سبحان الله وبحمده عدد خلقه، ورضا نفسه، وزنة عرشه، ومداد كلماته‏“‏‏
Hazrat Juwairiyah bint Al-Harith Radiallahu Anha, the Mother of the Believers, reported: Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam came out from my apartment in the morning, when he had performed Fajr, whilst I was on my musallah. He came back in the forenoon and found me still sitting there. Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said, “Are you still in the same position as I left you.” I replied in the affirmative. Thereupon the Prophet said, “I recited four words three times after I had left you. If these are to be weighed against all what you have recited since morning, these will be heavier. These are: (Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi, `adada khalqihi, wa rida nafsihi, wa zinata `arshihi, wa midada kalimatihi )…Glorify Allah with His praise, as many times as the number of His creatures, in accordance with His Good Pleasure, equal to the weight of His Throne and equal to the ink that may be used in recording the words for His Praise)].” ~ (Muslim)

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَمْرٍو، رضى الله عنهما قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏“‏ خَلَّتَانِ لاَ يُحْصِيهِمَا رَجُلٌ مُسْلِمٌ إِلاَّ دَخَلَ الْجَنَّةَ أَلاَ وَهُمَا يَسِيرٌ وَمَنْ يَعْمَلُ بِهِمَا قَلِيلٌ يُسَبِّحُ اللَّهَ فِي دُبُرِ كُلِّ صَلاَةٍ عَشْرًا وَيَحْمَدُهُ عَشْرًا وَيُكَبِّرُهُ عَشْرًا ‏“‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ فَأَنَا رَأَيْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَعْقِدُهَا بِيَدِهِ قَالَ ‏“‏ فَتِلْكَ خَمْسُونَ وَمِائَةٌ بِاللِّسَانِ وَأَلْفٌ وَخَمْسُمِائَةٍ فِي الْمِيزَانِ وَإِذَا أَخَذْتَ مَضْجَعَكَ تُسَبِّحُهُ وَتُكَبِّرُهُ وَتَحْمَدُهُ مِائَةً فَتِلْكَ مِائَةٌ بِاللِّسَانِ وَأَلْفٌ فِي الْمِيزَانِ فَأَيُّكُمْ يَعْمَلُ فِي الْيَوْمِ وَاللَّيْلَةِ أَلْفَيْنِ وَخَمْسَمِائَةِ سَيِّئَةٍ ‏“‏ ‏.‏ قَالُوا وَكَيْفَ لاَ يُحْصِيهَا قَالَ ‏“‏ يَأْتِي أَحَدَكُمُ الشَّيْطَانُ وَهُوَ فِي صَلاَتِهِ فَيَقُولُ اذْكُرْ كَذَا اذْكُرْ كَذَا ‏.‏ حَتَّى يَنْفَتِلَ فَلَعَلَّهُ أَنْ لاَ يَفْعَلَ وَيَأْتِيهِ وَهُوَ فِي مَضْجَعِهِ فَلاَ يَزَالُ يُنَوِّمُهُ حَتَّى يَنَامَ ‏“‏
Hazrat Abdullah bin `Amr Radiallahu Anhu said: Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said: ‘There are two characteristics which a Muslim person acquires, that he enters Paradise. And indeed, they are easy, but those who act upon them are few: He glorifies Allah at the end of every prayer ten times (saying SubhaanAllah) and praises Him ten times saying (Alhumdulilah) and extols His greatness ten times (saying Allah Hu Akbar).’”He said: “And I have seen Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam counting them with his hand. He said: ‘So this is one hundred and fifty with the tongue, and one thousand and five hundred on the Scale. When you go to bed, you glorify Him, extol His greatness, and praise Him a hundred times, so this is one hundred with the tongue and one thousand on the Scale. Which of you perform two thousand and five hundred evil deeds in a single day and night?’ They said: ‘How could we not guard over them?’ He said: ‘Shaitan comes to one of you when he is in his Salat and says: “Remember such and such, remember such and such” until he turns (after completing salaah) and perhaps he will then not do it. And he comes to him when he is lying down and makes him sleepy until he falls asleep (without reading it).’” ~ (Tirmidhi)

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رضي الله عنه : أَنَّ فُقَرَاءَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ أَتَوْا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقَالُوا : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ , قَدْ ذَهَبَ أَهْلُ الدُّثُورِ بِالدَّرَجَاتِ الْعُلَى وَالنَّعِيمِ الْمُقِيمِ . قَالَ : وَمَا ذَاكَ ؟ قَالُوا : يُصَلُّونَ كَمَا نُصَلِّي , وَيَصُومُونَ كَمَا نَصُومُ , وَيَتَصَدَّقُونَ وَلا نَتَصَدَّقُ ، وَيُعْتِقُونَ وَلا نُعْتِقُ . فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم : أَفَلا أُعَلِّمُكُمْ شَيْئًا تُدْرِكُونَ بِهِ مَنْ سَبَقَكُمْ , وَتَسْبِقُونَ مَنْ بَعْدَكُمْ ، وَلا يَكُونُ أَحَدٌ أَفْضَلَ مِنْكُمْ , إلاَّ مَنْ صَنَعَ مِثْلَ مَا صَنَعْتُمْ ؟ قَالُوا : بَلَى , يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ . قَالَ : تُسَبِّحُونَ وَتُكَبِّرُونَ وَتَحْمَدُونَ دُبُرَ كُلِّ صَلاةٍ : ثَلاثاً وَثَلاثِينَ مَرَّةً . قَالَ أَبُو صَالِحٍ : فَرَجَعَ فُقَرَاءُ الْمُهَاجِرِينَ , فَقَالُوا : سَمِعَ إخْوَانُنَا أَهْلُ الأَمْوَالِ بِمَا فَعَلْنَا , فَفَعَلُوا مِثْلَهُ . فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم : ذَلِكَ فَضْلُ اللَّهِ يُؤْتِيهِ مَنْ يَشَاءُ
Hazrat Abu Hurairah Radiallahu Anhu reported: Some of the poor Emigrants came to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam and said to him, “The wealthy have obtained all high ranks and everlasting bliss.” He asked, “How is that?” They replied: “They offer Salat as we do, and observe Saum (fasting) as we do, but they give in Sadaqah (charity) and we do not, and they emancipate slaves and we cannot.” Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said, “Shall I not teach you something whereby you will catch up with those who have preceded you and will get ahead of those who follow you, and no one will surpass you unless he does the same as you do?” They said, “Surely, O Messenger of Allah.” He said, “Say: SubhaanAllah, Allahu Akbar, and Alhamdulillah, thirty-three times at the end of every Salat.” They returned to him and said: “Our brothers, the possessors of wealth, having heard what we are doing, have started doing the same.” Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said, “This is Grace of Allah which He gives to whom He wishes.“ ~ (Al- Bukhari and Muslim)

عَنْ أَنَسٍ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم مَرَّ بِشَجَرَةٍ يَابِسَةِ الْوَرَقِ فَضَرَبَهَا بِعَصَاهُ فَتَنَاثَرَ الْوَرَقُ فَقَالَ ‏ “‏ إِنَّ الْحَمْدَ لِلَّهِ وَسُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَلاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ لَتُسَاقِطُ مِنْ ذُنُوبِ الْعَبْدِ كَمَا تَسَاقَطَ وَرَقُ هَذِهِ الشَّجَرَةِ ‏“‏ ‏.‏
Hazrat Anas bin Malik Radiallahu Anhu narrated that: Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam passed by a tree with dry leaves, so he struck it with his staff, making the leaves fall. Then he said: (Al-Ḥamdulillāhh)’ ‘glory to Allah, (Subḥān Allāh)’ ‘none has the right to be worshipped by Allah, (Lā Ilāha Illallāh)’ and (Allāhu Akbar)’ cause the sins to fall from the worshipper, just as the leaves of this tree fall.” ~ (Tirmidhi)
