قَالَ النَّبِيُّ ‏صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ


‏إِنَّ مِنْ أَفْضَلِ أَيَّامِكُمْ يَوْمَ الْجُمُعَةِ فَأَكْثِرُوا عَلَيَّ مِنْ الصَّلاَةِ فِيهِ

فَإِنَّ صَلاَتَكُمْ مَعْرُوضَةٌ عَلَيَّ قَالَ فَقَالُوا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ

 – وَكَيْفَ تُعْرَضُ صَلاَتُنَا عَلَيْكَ وَقَدْ أَرَمْتَ ‏- ‏قَالَ يَقُولُونَ بَلِيتَ

‏قَالَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ تَبَارَكَ وَتَعَالَى حَرَّمَ عَلَى الأَرْضِ أَجْسَادَ الأَنْبِيَاءِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِمْ



The Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said:


“Surely, among the best of your days is Friday; so increase in (invoking Allaah’s) Salaat (1) upon me during it, for your (invocations for Allaah’s) Salaat (upon me) will be displayed to me.” So they (the companions, radiyallaahu ‘ahnum) asked: “O Messenger of Allah! How will our (invocation for Allaah’s) Salaat (upon you) be displayed to you when you have disintegrated (i.e. your body turned to dust in the grave)?” He replied, “Verily, Allaah tabaaraka wa ta’aalaa has made forbidden for the earth (the consumption of) the bodies of the Prophets – may Allaah’s Salaat be upon them.” (2)



(1) Regarding the term Salaat: When one sends Salaat upon the Prophet – sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam – it does NOT mean that one prays TO the Prophet – wal ‘iyaathu billaah – because that would constitute shirk; rather, this means that one prays/asks/invokes/supplicates to ALLAAH (alone) to send His Salaat upon the Prophet – sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam. In the expression “Salla Allaahu Alaihi/Alaihim” the Salaat from Allaah is interpreted to mean His praising of him/them before al-mala’ al-a’laa (the angels). This is how Abul-Aaliyah – radiyallaahu anhu – interpreted it as mentioned in Saheeh al-Bukhaaree regarding verse 56 from Soorat al-Ahzaab. It is also the choice of Sh. Ibn Uthaymeen – rahimahullaah – in ash-SharH al-Mumti’. Wallaahu A’lam.  For more information, read this.


(2) The Hadeeth is narrated by Aws ‘ibn Aws – radiyallaahu ‘anhu – and graded Saheeh by Sh. al-Albaanee – rahimahullaah – in Saheeh Abee Daawood, #1531.  Online Reference – Sunan Abee Daawood.

مَنْ سَبَّحَ اللَّهَ فِي دُبُرِ كُلِّ صَلاةٍ ثَلاثًا وَثَلاثِينَ وَحَمِدَ اللَّهَ ثَلاثًا وَثَلاثِينَ وَكَبَّرَ اللَّهَ ثَلاثًا وَثَلاثِينَ فَتْلِكَ تِسْعَةٌ وَتِسْعُونَ وَقَالَ تَمَامَ الْمِائَةِ لا إِلَهَ إِلاّ اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لا شَرِيكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ غُفِرَتْ خَطَايَاهُ وَإِنْ كَانَتْ مِثْلَ زَبَدِ الْبَحْرِ

Abu Hurayrah (radiyallaahu ‘anhu) reported from the Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu alaihi wa sallam):

Whoever glorifies Allaah (says SubHaanallaah) after each prayer thirty-three times, praises Allaah (says alHamdulillaah) thirty-three times, and magnifies Allaah (says Allaahu Akbar) thirty-three times – that makes ninety-nine – then completes one hundered by saying ‘Laa ilaaha illallaah waHdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul mulku, wa lahul Hamdu, wa huwa ‘alaa kulli shay’in qadeerun (1), his sins will be forgiven even if they were (abundant) like the foam of the sea.” (2)



Next time your nafs and/or the Shaytaan urge you to get up after salah without saying this…

think about your many sins…

and how THIS action – if done sincerely for the sake of Allaah – can be the one that will save you (after His Mercy) (3).


Note: H = ح

(1) Translation as appears in Hisul Muslim: None has the right to be worshipped except Allaah, alone, without partner, to Him belongs all sovereignty and praise and He is over all things omnipotent.

(2) Reported by Muslim in his Saheeh, #939. Online Reference in Translation of Saheeh Muslim: Book 004, Chapter 69, #1243.

(3) Abu Hurayrah reported Allaah’s Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) as saying: There is none whose deeds alone would entitle him to get into Paradise. It was said to him: And, Allaah’s Messenger, not even you? Thereupon he said: Not even I, but that my Lord wraps me in Mercy. – Translation of Saheeh Muslim, Book 039, Chapter 15, #6761.

من دخل السوق فقال : لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له، له الملك، وله الحمد، يحيي ويميت، وهو حي لا يموت بيده الخير، وهو على كل شيء قدير، كتب الله له ألف ألف حسنة، ومحا عنه ألف ألف سيئة، ورفع له ألف ألف درجة، وبنى له بيتا في الجنة

Whoever enters the marketplace and says:Laa ilaaha illallaah waHdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul mulku, wa lahul Hamdu, yuHyee wa yumeetu wa huwa Hayyun laa yamootu, biyadihil khayru, wa huwa ‘alaa kulli shay’in qadeerun” (1) Allaah would write for him a thousand thousand (i.e. million) good deeds, erase from him a thousand thosand (i.e. million) bad deeds, raise for him (his status) a thousand thousand (i.e. million) levels, and build a house for him Jannah.” (2)


Another easy action with tremendous reward! SubHaanallaah!


Note: H = ح

(1) Translation as appears in Hisul Muslim: None has the right to be worshipped except Allaah, alone, without partner, to Him belongs all sovereignty and praise. He gives life and causes death, and He is living and does not die. In His hand is all good and He is over all things, omnipotent.

(2) This hadeeth is narrated by Abdullaah ibn Umar (radiyallaahu anhumaa), and is graded Hasan by Sh. al-Albaanee in Saheeh al-Jaami’ #6231.

من قرأ الآيتين من آخر سورة البقرة في ليلة كفتاه


“Whoever recites the last two verses from Soorat al-Baqarah [2:285-6] at night, they will suffice him (1).” (2)


 Easy task and great reward, subhaanallaah!


What will they suffice YOU from?  Read reference #1.


(1) Ibn Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said: The correct (opinion is that) they will suffice (protect) him from the evil of that which will cause him harm. [al-Waabil as-Sayyib, p. 205]

An-Nawawee (rahimahullaah) said regarding the meaning of ‘they will suffice him’: “It has been said to mean: they will suffice him from Qiyaam al-Layl (night prayer) [*refer to EN below], protect him from the Shaytaan, protect him from the aafaat (diseases), and it’s possible (that it means) from all of them.” [Saheeh Muslim with Explanation of an-Nawawee]

The author of Fath al-Haqq al-Mubeen said: “(Sh. Abdul-Azeez Ibn Baaz -rahimahullaah- said:) and the meaning – and Allaah knows best – is that it suffices (protect) him from every harm.” [Fath al-Haqq al-Mubeen, p. 51, quoted from a treatise regarding the ruling of magic and sorcery]


(2) The hadeeth is Muttafaqun ‘alayhi (i.e. agreed upon by Bukhaaree and Muslim) and has been narrated by Ibn Mas’ood (radiyallaahu anhu).  In Bukhaaree, it can be found in Kitaab al-Maghaazee (12) #4008, and Kitaab Fadaa’il al-Qur’aan #5009.  In Muslim, it can be found in Kitaab Salaatul Musaafireen (43) #807 and 808.


*EN – Clarification: The word ‘suffice’ in ‘suffice him from Qiyaam al-Layl’ doesn’t imply ‘protection’ like it does when mentioned with the Shaytaan/diseases/harm etc. Here, suffice means that it gives him reward that would ‘suffice’. Al-Manaawee mentioned in Faydh al-Qadeer “…they will suffice him from Qiyaam in that night whilst reciting the whole Qur’aan…” “…or suffice him, because of the reward he gains as a result of reciting them, from seeking anything else.” This of course should NOT be an encouragement to recite the two verses and abandon Qiyaam al-Layl! Why?

Point of Benefit: There are things that have a reward similar to other actions, but they cannot be used as a replacement for them. An example of that: The Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Whoever says Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wahdahu laa shareeka lah, lahu’l-mulk wa lahu’l-hamd wa huwa ‘ala kulli shay’in qadeer one hundred times in a day will have (a reward) equivalent to freeing ten slaves, one hundred hasanaat (good deeds) will be recorded for him and one hundred sayi’aat (bad deeds) will be erased from him, and he will be protected from the Shaytaan for that day until evening comes. No one can do anything better than what he has done except one who does more than that. Whoever says Subhaan Allaah wa bi hamdihi (Glory and praise be to Allaah) one hundred times in a day, his sins will be erased even if they were like the foam of the sea.” [Bukhari and Muslim] Just because the reward for saying the above statement is equivalent to “freeing ten slaves” doesn’t mean that saying it will suffice one from freeing an actual slave as a kaffaarah (expiation) for killing a believing soul by mistake or for having relation with one’s spouse during fasting hours in Ramadaan. Wallaahu A’lam.

Soorat al-Kahf


“من قرأ سورة ( الكهف ) في يوم الجمعة أضاء له من النور ما بين الجمعتين”


“Whoever reads Soorat al-Kahf on the day of Jumu’ah,
will have a light that will shine in between the two Fridays (i.e. from one Friday to the next).”



To hear LISTEN to Soorat al-Kahf (*), click below:


Narrated by al-Haakim, 2/399; al-Bayhaqi, 3/249. Ibn Hajar said in Takhreej al-Adhkaar that this is a hasan hadeeth, and he said, this is the strongest report that has been narrated concerning reading Soorat al-Kahf. See: Fayd al-Qadeer, 6/198. It was classed as saheeh by Shaykh al-Albaani (rahimahullaah) in Saheeh al-Jaami’ #6470, and in Saheeh at-Targheeb #736.

Narrated Mu’aath ibn Anas (radiyallaahu ‘anhu) the Prophet (sallaahu alaihi wa sallaam) said:

“Whoever recites “Qul huwallaahu ahad“(1) ten times, Allaah will build for him a house in Paradise.”(2)



(1)  This means to recite the entire Soorah (i.e. Soorat al-Ikhlaas, #112 with all 4 verses), not just repeat that one verse, wallaahu ‘alam, as has been clarified through other narrations (see an example in the note below).

(2)  The hadeeth is graded Saheeh by Sh. al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah) in Saheeh al-Jaami’ al-Sagheer, #6472.

Note:  In another narration with a saheeh isnaad (as reported by Sh. al-Albaanee rahimahullaah in as-Silsilah as-Saheehah #2/136):  Whoever recites “Qul huwa Allaahu ahad” until he finishes it (the soorah) ten times, Allaah will build for him a palace in Paradise; whoever recites it twenty times, two palaces will be built for him; and whoever recites it thirty times, three palaces will be built for him.
