*A reminder on the Importance of Fajr Prayer for me, and you and you and you.
"Shaytaan ties three knots on the crown of any one of you in your sleep. He says upon each knot that he ties: "You have a long night before you, therefore sleep". But if you wake up and mention Allah, Most Exalted in remembrance one knot will be untied. If you then make ablution another knot will be undone. If you then proceed to pray the last knot will be disentangled. Thus, you will feel in the morning energetic and in good spirits. Otherwise you will feel in a despicable state, lazy". [narrated by Maalik, Bukhaaree, Muslim and Abu Dawood]
The Prophet SAW said:
“The most burdensome prayers for the hypocrites are ‘Isha and Fajr [AM: because they prefer the comfort of sleep to prayer], but if they only knew what they contain, they would come even if they had to crawl.” [Ahmad]
“Whoever prays the dawn prayer [Fajr], then He is under Allah’s protection. So beware, O son of Adam, that Allah doesn’t call you to account for being absent from His protection for any reason.” [Muslim]
May Allah Most High make us all among those who rise and pray Fajr easily and consistently, out of submission and gratitude. Ameen.
Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
May Peace and Allah’s mercy be upon you =)
Dear brothers and sisters, Salam is a great greeting. The greatness of Salam can be understood by the fact that it leads us to Jannah. It might sound strange, but it is true! The following hadith tells us about this:
It was narrated that Abu Hurairah (RA) said: Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said, “By the One in Whose Hand is my soul, you will not enter Paradise until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another. Shall I not tell you of something which, if you do it, you will love one another? Spread Salam among yourselves.”
(Hadith No. 5193, Book of Etiquette, Sunan Abu Dawud, Vol. 5).
I interpret this hadith in two ways. First thing to understand from this narration is the greatness of Salam and the significance of spreading the Islamic greeting among ourselves. The other message to be learned from this hadith is that we Muslims are supposed to spread peace and harmony among ourselves (Salam means peace) and live united.
There is also another beautiful hadith. It was narrated that Abu Umamah (RA) said: Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said, “The one who is closest of people to Allah, the Most High, is the one who initiates the greeting of Salam.”
(Hadith No. 5197, Book of Etiquette, Sunan Abu Dawud, Vol. 5).
Spread Salam among all the Muslims. Start with our homes, give salam to your family, neighbours and friends! What a beautiful way to start our day, MasyaAllah =) It is also our responsibility to teach our children the Islamic way of greeting. Children see their ideals in their parents; therefore, we have to teach them by example. Keep all those Hi, Hello, Good Morning, Whats Up etc. aside; greet in Islamic manner!
My husband greets me with Salam everytime he sends me a message on my mobile phone, or even when he calls <3 It gives me butterflies <3 If you haven’t done it before, start today and you will feel the difference.
Be united. Live happily in harmony and peace. May Allah bless us all with peace =)
