Hadith on Wudu (Ablution or Ujuu)

***Do Wudu before going to sleep***
Image



It is narrated from ibn e Umar [r.a] that the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said,
“Purify these bodies, and Allah will purify you. Whenever a slave spends his night in a state of purification, an angel spends his night within his (slave's) hair and he does not turn over during the night except that he [the angel] says: O Allah, forgive Your slave, for he went to sleep in a state of purification."
[Reported by Tabarani and graded "good" by Sh Al-Albani]

Vocabulary from the Hadith:

طَهِّرُوا – you all purify (a command)
الأَجْسَادَ – the bodies
يَبِيتُ – he spends his night
طَاهِرًا – in a state of purification
شِعَارِهِ – his hair
يَنْقَلِبُ – he turns over/about


Lessons from the Hadith

1) Islam is a religion of purification. Purification is the half part of Imaan.

2) Sleep in a state of wudu, do special efforts during the cold nights of winter.

3) Spend night in a state in which angles supplicates (makes du'aa) for you.

4) Sleeping in a state of wudu/doing your wudu before sleeping is a sunnah of the Prophet (sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam) and is a way of receiving Allah's Forgiveness.

5)There are many narrations of the angels making supplication for those who do specific acts such as giving charity or making supplication for a brother/sister in their absence. Sleeping in a state of wudu is another way to receive the supplication of the angels.

6) Allah will purify us if we purify ourselves.

7) This hadith is a reminder for us during these cold days to not give up this sunnah!

Wassalam

Hadith on Warning against 1) Wasting the month of Ramadan, 2) Omitting sending of benedictions upon RasulAllah (SAW), and 3) Neglecting Parents

Image


Ka'ab b. 'Ujra (RA) said:

Rasulullah (SAW) said, "Gather around the pulpit," [so we gathered around it].
When he (SAW) climbed the first step, he said, "Ameen"
When he (SAW) climbed the second step, he said, "Ameen"
When he (SAW) climbed the third step, he said, "Ameen"

Later when he came down, we said: "O Messenger of Allah, we have heard from you today something we had never heard before"

He (SAW) said,
"Jibrail (AW) came to me and said, 'Whoever lives through Ramadan, and is not forgiven (i.e. he does not spend Ramadan in the worship and remembrance of Allah SWT), may they be distanced!(1)
I said, 'Ameen'.
When I climbed the second step, he said, 'Whoever you are mentioned in their presence, and he does not send benedictions upon you (i.e. he does not say, sallalahu alayhi wa sallam when he hears the name of Prophet Muhammad SAW), let him be distanced!(2)
I said, 'Ameen'.
When I climbed the third step, he said, 'Whoever has one or both parents who reach old age, and they do not cause him to enter Paradise (i.e. he does not take care of his parents and gain their blessings and Allah SWT's mercy), may he be distanced!(3)
I said, 'Ameen'.


(1) Ramadan is a blessed month. If someone spends this month in the worship and remembrance of Allah (SWT) and asks His forgiveness sincerely, Allah (The Most Merciful), forgives him. BUT if that person wastes that month doing other trivial deeds, he will not be forgiven by Allah (SWT). May he be distanced from Allah (SWT)'s mercy for wasting such a sacred month of opportunities.

(2) Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is the Last and Final Messenger of Allah (SWT). Through him, Allah (SWT) sent down the revelation of Qur'an (The Divine Guidance) to the whole mankind. RasulAllah (SAW) explained the Qur'an through his life style, teachings and actions. It is Rasulullah (SAW) whose footsteps we try to follow in order to perfect our worship of Allah (SWT). On the Day of Judgement, Rasulullah (SAW) will be our advocate to Allah (SWT) asking Him to forgive our sins since we are his Ummah.
Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is one of the greatest blessings of Allah (SWT) upon mankind. This is why we are obliged to send benedictions to him (SAW) whenever his name is mentioned. Say, Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam. Or else, we will be deprived of Allah (SWT)'s mercy


(3) Allah (SWT) has given the parents the highest rank after Him and The Messenger of Allah (SAW). Therefore, it is our obligation to show respect, mercy and love to our parents, especially when they reach old age. If we take care of our parents when they are old with our most polite behavior and love, Allah (SWT) will grant us Paradise.
If one is unable to gain Allah (SWT)'s satisfaction and attain entrance to Jannah (Paradise), by not taking care of his/her parents even when Allah (SWT) has given them opportunities, May they be punished by being distanced and deprived of His Mercy.

A Righteous Wife is Half of your Deen (Religion)


Image

The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

"A man marries a woman for four reasons: for her property, for her rank (status), for her beauty, and for her religion (and character). So marry the one who is best in the religion and character and prosper". (Al Bukhari and Muslim)

The Rasulullah (sallahu alayhi wa sallam) also said:

"If Allah grants a Muslim a righteous wife, this helps him preserve half of his religion (faith). He should, therefore, fear Allah as regards the other half." (At-Tabarani and Al-Hakim)

Guard you Eyes, Guard your Deen

Image

It’s reported that Abu Rayhana (radi Allahu anhu) said, ‘The Messenger of Allah صَلَّى الله عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ said: ”Hellfire has been made forbidden for the eye which wept out of the Fear and Awe of Allah. Hellfire has been made forbidden for the eye which stayed awake and vigilant (through the night) in the Way of Allah. Hellfire has been made forbidden for the eye which looked away from that which has been forbidden by Allah.”
[Narrated in Hakim, authentic according to Shaykh al-Alba

Lessons from the Hadith:

Khashyah is a fear as a result of knowledge and leads to action. It is when you know the greatness and magnitude of what you fear, and as a result, have an awe and reverence of it.

Crying from the khashyah of Allah is an honorable action.

Staying awake to keep watch “in the way of Allah”, means to be in the protection of the Muslims.

Looking at what Allah has made forbidden is an action that leads to the Fire.

Saving eyes from seeing anything forbidden like nude pictures, non relative men and women, vulgar programs and movies etc.

and Allah the Most High Knows Best.

Suspicion

Image

It is narrated from Abu Hurairah [r.a] that the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, “Beware of suspicion, for suspicion is the worst of false statements. And do not look for the others’ faults, do not do spy on one another, do not practice Tanaajush, do not be jealous of one another, do not hate one another and do not desert (stop talking to) one another. And O Allah’s worshipers, be brothers!” [Reported by Al-Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawud and al-Tirmidh and others]

Lessons from the Hadith

- How comprehensive is the advice of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم! In a few words, he has provided remedy for all that ails us with regards to dealing with each other.

- In this hadith, we also find a glimpse of how the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم lived and explained the Qur’an through his words and actions.

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اجْتَنِبُوا كَثِيرًا مِنَ الظَّنِّ إِنَّ بَعْضَ الظَّنِّ إِثْمٌ وَلا تَجَسَّسُوا وَلا يَغْتَبْ بَعْضُكُمْ بَعْضًا أَيُحِبُّ أَحَدُكُمْ أَنْ يَأْكُلَ لَحْمَ أَخِيهِ مَيْتًا فَكَرِهْتُمُوهُ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ تَوَّابٌ رَحِيمٌ

O you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin. And do not spy or backbite each other. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when dead? You would detest it. And fear Allah ; indeed, Allah is Accepting of repentance and Merciful [49:12]


- Suspicion/bad thoughts about others is the root cause of all the other evils mentioned in the hadith.

- Suspicion could easily lead a person to tahassus and tajassus, which could in turn lead to doing things that will harm the other, like tanaajush, which would lead to mutual hatred and cutting off of ties.

- The solution is to be brothers in Islam, like Allah said, “The believers are but brothers, so make settlement between your brothers. And fear Allah that you may receive mercy.” [49:10]

Good and evil are not equal. Reply with that which is best. You will then see that he, between whom and you there was enmity, shall be as though he is your close friend. This is only achieved by those who are forbearing. This is only achieved by him who is endowed with great fortune." The Holy Quran (41:34-35)

Ibn 'Abbas says that Rasulullah (peace be upon him) used to say: "Choose white clothing, as it is the best clothing. White clothing should be worn whilst living, and the dead should be buried in white." [Shumael Tirmizi Hadith No. 63]

"You must be compassionate. Whenever there is compassion in something, it adorns it, and whenever it is removed from something it disgraces it"--- Prophet Muhammad (SAW)

When a rich person gives charity, it's good. But when a poor person gives charity, it's better.

WHY?

Because if you're rich, it's easy for you to give part of your wealth in charity since you will still have money for yourself. But it's difficult to give charity when you already don't have enough for yourself, meaning you're already a poor person.

So despite your poverty and while you're struggling financially, you still spend your money to help someone poorer than you hoping for Allah's reward, THAT's the best charity.

Feed the Hungry:
Give food whoever you see is hungry and/or whomever asks you for food. They may be poor people, travellers, guests or anyone else. There's great rewards in feeding the hungry ones inshaAllah. It's a form of charity.

Visit the sick:
If you know anyone who is sick among your family, friends, neighbors, pay them a visit. make du'aa for them. It's also a form of charity, charity of time. Plus, it strengthens the ties of kinship and compassion.

Set free the captives:
This may not be applicable these days. but before wealthy people used to buy slaves and this hadith mentions that they should set free their slaves. i.e. do not buy/sell people as slaves
