The Reward for Khushoo’ and Beautification of the Prayer…


Uqbah bin Aamir (ra) said: The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) said: “There is no person who performs wudhoo, beautifying his wudhoo, then prays two rakahs concentrating therein with this heart and face except Paradise becomes obligatory for him.”[Reported by Muslim]

Zaid bin Khaalid al-Juhnee (ra) said: The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) said: “Whoever performed wudhoo and beautified the wudhoo, then prayed two rakahs, not being forgetful in them all his previous sins will be forgiven.”[Saheeh ut-Targheeb wat-Tarheeb, no. 223.]

Humraan, the servant of Uthmaan bin Affaan (ra) said: I saw Uthmaan bin Affaan (ra) call for wudhoo (i.e. a container of water). He poured water over his hands and washed them three times. Then he put his right hand into the container and rinsed his mouth, and washed his nose by putting water in it and then blew the water out. Then he washed his face and forearms up to the elbows three times, passed his wet hands over his head and washed his feet up to the ankles three times. Then he said: I saw the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) perform wudhoo like this wudhoo of mine and then he (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) said: “If anyone performs wudhoo like this wudhoo then prays two rakahs, without conversing with his soul (i.e. not thinking of anything else) all his past sins will be forgiven.”[Reported by Bukhaaree, Muslim and others.]

Abu Dardaa (ra) said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) say: “Whoever performs ablution and beautifies it, then stands and prays two rakahs – or four, Sahl (a subnarrator) is not sure – beautifying them with dhikr and khushoo and then seeks forgivesness from Allaah, will be forgiven.”[Reported by Ahmad with a Hasan isnaad.]

And at the end of the hadeeth of Amr bin Asabah (ra): “… If he stands and prays, praises Allaah, glorifies Him, extolls Him with that which He is worthy of and empties his heart for Allaah the Exalted alone, he will depart from his sins in the same condition as the day his mother gave birth to him.”[Reported by Muslim and see [Saheeh ut-Targheeb wat-Tarheeb], no. 392.]

Jaabir (ra) said: I asked the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) about wiping the pebbles during prayer. He said: “Only once, but if you withold from doing that it is better for you than a hundred black-eyed she-camels.”[Reported by Ibn Khuzaimah in his [Saheeh] it is also in [Saheeh ut-Targheeb wat-Tarheeb], no. 558.]

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
