Gaining Rewards (Part2)


26 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

If you hear the muaddhin, then repeat what he says, then send prayers upon me, since indeed the one who sends prayers upon me once, Allaah sends ten prayers upon him, then ask Allaah for me to be an intercessor since it is a high station in Paradise which is not befitting except for a servant from the servants of Allaah, and I hope that I am the one, so whoever asks [Allaah for] intercession for me then intercession will take place for him.

27 -The Messenger of Allaah- may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :

Who ever says, when he hears the call to prayer :

اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّ هَذِهِ الدَّعْوَةِ التَّامَّةِ وَالصَّلَاةِ الْقَائِمَةِ آتِ مُحَمَّدًا الْوَسِيلَةَ وَالْفَضِيلَةَ وَابْعَثْهُ مَقَامًا مَحْمُودًا الَّذِي وَعَدْتَهُ

– O Allaah Lord of this perfect call to prayer and Owner of this prayer to be performed, bestow upon Muhammad a station in Paradise and a rank above the rest of creation and give him the honorable station which you have promised him:

<<Allaahumma rabba hadhihi ‘adda’watit tammati, was-salatil qa’imati, ‘ati Muhammadan ál-waseelata wal faaheelata, wab’ath-hu maqqaman mahmoodan ‘allathee wa’adtahu>>

Then my intercession occurs for him on the day of Judgment.

28 -A man said O Messenger of Allaah, indeed the callers to the prayer are more favored than we are. So the Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

repeat what they say, and when you finish ask, and you will be given.

29 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

A supplication which is made between the Adhaan and the Iqama is not rejected.

30 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :

Two things which are not rejected, or rarely rejected. A supplication made at the time of the adhaan, and at the time when the battle becomes severe.

 31 -The Prophet – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

Shall I not teach you something, which the people who proceeded you attained, and those who come after you will precede with this, and there will be no one better than you except the one who does what you do? They said of course O Messenger of Allaah- may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him. So he said: say:

SubanAllaah [far is Allaah from imperfection], Allaahu akbar [Allaah is the Greatest], and Alhamdulillaah [All Praise is to Allaah] at the end of every Salaat 33 times.

32 -The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

Whoever says SubhanAllaah at the end of every prayer 33 times, and says AlHamdulillaah 33 times, and says Allaahu akbar 33 times, then this adds up to 99, and if he says

ِ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

‘There is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah Alone, He has no partners, He has the Dominion and for Him is all praise, and He is capable of all things’

<<La ilaha ‘illa Allaahu wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu wa huwa ala kulli shayin qadeer>>

to complete a hundred, then his mistakes/sins are forgiven even if they were equivalent to the foam on the sea.

33 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

There are two characteristics or two qualities that if a Muslim slave of Allaah is continuous upon, will enter Paradise. They are simple but those who do them are few.

To say: SubhanAllaah at the end of every prayer ten times, and say AlHamdulillah ten times and say Allaahu akbar ten times, which is equivalent to 150 times on the tongue and 1500 on the scales, and he says Allaahu Akbar 34 times when he goes to bed and he says AlHamdulillah 33 times and says SubhanAllaah 33 times, and that is equivalent to 100 on the tongue and 1000 on the scales.

34 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – used to teach us al-Istikhaarah for all matters, just like he used to teach us a chapter from the Quraan, he would say: If any of you intends to undertake a matter then he should pray two rakats other than an obligatory prayer then he should say:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْتَخِيرُكَ بِعِلْمِكَ وَأَسْتَقْدِرُكَ بِقُدْرَتِكَ وَأَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ الْعَظِيمِ ، فَإِنَّكَ تَقْدِرُ وَلَا أَقْدِرُ ، وَتَعْلَمُ وَلَا أَعْلَمُ وَأَنْتَ عَلَّامُ الْغُيُوبِ ، اللَّهُمَّ إِنْ كُنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنَّ هَذَا الْأَمْرَ خَيْرٌ لِي فِي دِينِي وَمَعَاشِي وَعَاقِبَةِ أَمْرِي أَوْ قَالَ عَاجِلِ أَمْرِي وَآجِلِهِ فَاقْدُرْهُ لِي وَيَسِّرْهُ لِي ثُمَّ بَارِكْ لِي فِيهِ وَإِنْ كُنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنَّ هَذَا الْأَمْرَ شَرٌّ لِي فِي دِينِي وَمَعَاشِي وَعَاقِبَةِ أَمْرِي أَوْ قَالَ فِي عَاجِلِ أَمْرِي وَآجِلِهِ فَاصْرِفْهُ عَنِّي وَاصْرِفْنِي عَنْهُ وَاقْدُرْ لِيَ الْخَيْرَ حَيْثُ كَانَ ثُمَّ أَرْضِنِي بِهِ

O Allaah I request of You with Your knowledge, and by Your Power I seek capability, and I ask of you of your great favour, since indeed You are the One who is able while I am not, and You know and I do not, and You are the One who knows the unseen, O Allaah if You know that this matter – here he mentions his need – is good for me in this world and for my living and for the matters of my hereafter – or he said, for my affairs now and the future – then decree it for me and make it easy for me and bless it for me, and if You know that this matter is evil for me in this world and for my life and for the matters of my hereafter – or he said, for my affairs now and the affairs of my future – then turn it away from me and turn me away from it, and decree goodness for me where ever it may be and make me pleased with it.

35 – The Messenger of Allaah- may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

The supplication of Yunas, when he supplicated while he was in the belly of the whale:

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنْتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ

there is none worthy of worship in truth except You, far are You from imperfection, indeed I am from amongst the thalimoon ( oppressors) –

<<La ilaha ‘illa ‘anta, subhanaka ‘innee kuntu minath-thalimeena>>

No Muslim ever supplicated with this for anything except that Allaah responds to him.

36 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :

Allaah does not afflict a slave with grief nor sadness, except that if the slave says: –

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي عَبْدُكَ وَابْنُ عَبْدِكَ وَابْنُ أَمَتِكَ نَاصِيَتِي بِيَدِكَ مَاضٍ فِيَّ حُكْمُكَ ، عَدْلٌ فِيَّ قَضَاؤُكَ ، أَسْأَلُكَ بِكُلِّ اسْمٍ هُوَ لَكَ سَمَّيْتَ بِهِ نَفْسَكَ أَوْ عَلَّمْتَهُ أَحَدًا مِنْ خَلْقِكَ أَوْ أَنْزَلْتَهُ فِي كِتَابِكَ أَوِ اسْتَأْثَرْتَ بِهِ فِي عِلْمِ الْغَيْبِ عِنْدَكَ أَنْ تَجْعَلَ الْقُرْآنَ رَبِيعَ قَلْبِي وَنُورَ صَدْرِي وَجِلَاءَ حُزْنِي وَذَهَابَ هَمِّي

O Allaah indeed I am Your slave, and the son of Your slave, and the son of Your female slave, my forelock is in Your Hand, Your command over me is forever executed and Your decree over me is just. I ask of You with all Your names, which belong to You, which You have named Yourself with, or which You have taught someone from Your creation or revealed it in Your Book or that which You have taken unto Your self with the knowledge of the unseen with You, that You make the Quraan the life of my heart and light of my breast and keep away from me my sadness, and that my grief goes away –

<<Allaahumma ‘innee ‘abduka, wabnu ‘abdika, wabnu amatika, nasiyatee biyadika, madhin fiyya hukmuka, adlun fiyya qadha’uka, asaluka bikulli ismin huwa laka, sammayta bihi nafsaka, aw anzaltahu fee kitabika, ‘aw allamthu ahadan min khaliqika, aw ista’tharta bihi fee ilmil ghaybi ‘indaka, án taj’alal-qurana rabee’a qalbee, wa noora sadree, wa jala’a huznee, wa thahaba hammee>>

then Allaah takes away his grief and sadness and replaces it with happiness.

37 – Uthman ibn al-Aas came to the Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – and said: O Messenger of Allaah indeed the shaytaan comes between me and my prayer, and my recitation becomes confusing? The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

This is a shaytaan called khunsabun, so if you sense his presence then seek refuge in Allaah from him and spit on your left hand side three times. Uthman said : I did that and Allaah kept him away from me.

38 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

There is no one from among Allaah’s servants, who is afflicted with an affliction except that he says:

( إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ ) اللَّهُمَّ أْجُرْنِي فِي مُصِيبَتِي وَأَخْلِفْ لِي خَيْرًا مِنْهَا

Indeed we belong to Allaah and indeed to Him is our return – O Allaah recompense me for my affliction and replace it with something better than that

<<Inna lil-lahi wa inna ‘ilayhi raji’oona, ‘allahumma’jurnee fee museebatee, wa ákhliflee khayran minha>>

except that Allaah compensates him in what he has been afflicted with, and gives him that which is better than the previous thing.

39 – Alee – may Allaah be pleased with him said:

Shall I not teach you words that the Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – taught me that even if you have an equivalent of a mountain of debt upon you that Allaah will pay it off on you behalf? Say:

َ اللَّهُمَّ اكْفِنِي بِحَلَالِكَ عَنْ حَرَامِكَ وَأَغْنِنِي بِفَضْلِكَ عَمَّنْ سِوَاكَ

O Allaah make what You have made lawful sufficient for me, as opposed to what You have made unlawful, and spare me by Your grace, of need of others.

<<Allahumma kifinee bihalalika ‘an haramika wa ághninee bifadhlika ‘amman siwaka>>

40 – Uthmaan bin Abee al-Aaas complained to the Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – about a pain he had in his body since he had become Muslim, so the Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said to him: place your hand on the part of your body that pains you and then say:

بِاسْمِ اللَّهِ

In the name of Allaah, Bismillaah [three times],

and say seven times: ‘Aouthu bi’izzatil-lahi waqudratihi min sharri ma ‘ajidu wa’uhathiru:

أَعُوذُ بِاللَّهِ وَقُدْرَتِهِ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا أَجِدُ وَأُحَاذِرُ

I seek refuge with Allaah and with His Capability from the evil that I feel and wary of

41 -The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

Who ever visits a sick person who has not reached his appointed time, then says for him seven times:

أَسْأَلُ اللَّهَ الْعَظِيمَ رَبَّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ أَنْ يَشْفِيَكَ

I ask Allaah The Adheem, Lord of the magnificent Ársh to cure you –
except that Allaah cures him.

<<As’alul-laha ‘al-adheema, rabbal ‘arshil átheemi an yashfika>>

42 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

Who ever stops at a place on his journey and then says:

أَعُوذُ بِكَلِمَاتِ اللَّهِ التَّامَّاتِ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا خَلَقَ

I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allaah from the evil of what He has created

<<A’outhu bikalimatil-lahi ‘at-tammati min sharri ma khalaqa>>

nothing will harm him until he leaves from that place.

43 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

Whoever eats some food and then says:

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي أَطْعَمَنِي هَذَا وَرَزَقَنِيهِ مِنْ غَيْرِ حَوْلٍ مِنِّي وَلَا قُوَّةٍ

All praise be to Allaah Who fed me this food and provided it for me without any ability from my self nor any strength from my self –

<<Al-hamdu lil-lahi ‘al-lathee at-‘amanee hatha, wa razaqaneehi min ghayri hawlin minnee wa la quwwatin>>

except that his previous sins are forgiven.

44 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

You will not enter Paradise until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another, shall I not show you something that by doing it, will cause you to love one another, spread salaams between yourselves.

45 – Imran bin Hussain said: that a man came to the Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – and said: As-salamu ‘alaykum (Peace be to you), the Messenger of Allaah said: ten.

Then another man came and said: As-salamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullah (Peace be to you and the mercy of Allaah), the messenger of Allaah said: twenty.

Then another man came and said: As-salamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu (Peace be to you and the mercy of Allaah and His blessings), the Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said: thirty.

[Note: These are the number of deeds corresponding to the extent of the salam.]

46 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

If one of you wants to have relations with his wife and says:

بِاسْمِ اللَّهِ اللَّهُمَّ جَنِّبْنَا الشَّيْطَانَ وَجَنِّبِ الشَّيْطَانَ مَا رَزَقْتَنَا

In the name of Allaah, O Allaah keep shaytaan away from us and keep shaytaan away from that which You provide for us –

<<Bismillahi allaahumma jannibna ash-shaytana, wajannib ásh-shaytana ma razaqtana>>

so if a child is born from them then shaytaan will never be able to harm him.

47 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

Whoever sits in a gathering and speaks a lot, then he says before he gets up from his sitting place

سُبْحَانَكَ اللَّهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ

You are far from imperfection o Allaah, and praise is to You, I testify that there is none worthy of worship in truth except You, I seek Your forgiveness, and I repent to You –

<<Subhanaka allahumma wa bihamdika, ash-hadu alla ilaha illa anta, astaghfiruka wa atoobu ilayka>>

except that Allaah covers up for him what he said in that gathering.

48 – Sulaymaan bin Suradin said: I was sitting with the Prophet – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – and two men were cursing, and the face of one of them became red, and he became furious. The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said: indeed I know a statement if he says it then his anger will go away, if he says :

أَعُوذُ بِاللَّهِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ

<<Aoodhoobillaahi min ashaytan ar-rajeem>>

I seek refuge in Allaah from the accursed shaytaan –

then his anger will go away.

49 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

Whoever sees some one who has been trialed and then says:

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي عَافَانِي مِمَّا ابْتَلَاكَ بِهِ وَفَضَّلَنِي عَلَى كَثِيرٍ مِمَّنْ خَلَقَ تَفْضِيلًا

Praise be to Allaah Who has saved me from what He has trialed you with and chosen me above much of the creation –

<<Alhamdu lil-lahi allathee afanee mimma ibtalaka bihi, wa fadh-dhalanee ala katheerin mimman khalaqa tafdheelan>>

then that trial will not afflict him.

50 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

Whoever enters the market place and says

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ وَهُوَ حَيٌّ لَا يَمُوتُ بِيَدِهِ الْخَيْرُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

‘There is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah Alone, He has no partners, He has the Dominion and for Him is all praise, He gives life and He takes life and He is the Ever living and does not die, in His Hand is goodness and He is capable of all things.’ –

<<La ilaha ‘illa Allaahu wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu yuhyee wa youmeet wa huwa hayun la yamoot biyadihi alkhair wa huwa ala kulli shayin qadeer>>

then Allaah writes a thousand thousand good deeds for him, and erases a thousand thousand bad deeds for him, and He raises him up a thousand thousand grades.

[ByShaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah|Hadeeth taken from:  ‘Saheeh al-Kalima at-Tayib’|Checked by:Muhammad NasurDeen al-Albani|Compiled by: Hajaj bin Abdullaah al-Areeni|Translated by: Abbas Abu Yahya||PDF Source: Gaining Rewards]

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)]
