1- The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said : Whoever says :
لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَه،ُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْد،ُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
‘There is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah Alone, He has no partners, to Him belongs 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
one hundred times in one day, then it is equivalent to, him freeing ten slaves, and a hundred good deeds are written for him, and a hundred bad deeds are erased, and it is a protection for him against shaytaan during that day until the evening, and no one comes with a better deed than him except for the man who does more actions than him.

2 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said: Whoever says : –
سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ
‘Far is Allaah from imperfection and praise is for Him’
Subhana allaahi wa bihamdihi
one hundred times in one day, then his mistakes / sins are cancelled out, even if they are like the foam on the ocean.
——————-
3 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :
There are two words which are gentle on the tongue, heavy on the scales , and beloved to ar-Rahmaan : –
: سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ ، سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ الْعَظِيمِ.
‘Far is Allaah from imperfection and praise is for Him, Far is Allaah The Sublime from imperfection
Subhana allaahi wa bihamdihi, Subhana allaahil atheem
——————-
4 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :
Indeed that I say :
سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ ، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ ، وَلَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ ، وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ
‘Far is Allaah from imperfection, and praise be to Allaah, and there is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, and Allaah is the Greatest,’
Subhana allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu akbar
– is more beloved to me than what the sun rose upon.
——————-
5 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :
Is one of you so weak that he cannot acquire a thousand good deeds everyday? So a questioner from amongst those sitting there asked him : How can anyone of us gain a thousand rewards?
He said : say :
سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ
Far is Allaah from imperfection –
Subhana allaahi
a hundred times, so a thousand good deeds are written for him or a thousand sins are cancelled for him.
——————-
6 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :
Shall I not inform you of a statement, which is a treasure from the treasures of Paradise? I said : yes O Messenger of Allaah, may my father & mother be sacrificed for you! He said : say :
لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ
There is no capability nor is there any power except with Allaah.
La hawla wa la quwwata illa billaa
——————-
7 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :
Whosoever, reaches the morning & reaches the evening and he says :
سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ
– ‘Allaah is far from imperfection and all praise is for Him’ –
Subhana allaahi wa bihamdihi
one hundred times, then no one brings anything better than him on the day of judgment, than what he has brought. Except the one who says what he has said, or has said more than him.
——————-
8 – On the authority of Mu’aad bin Abdillaah ibn Khubayb on the authority of his father who said we went out on a very dark and rainy night searching for the Messenger of Allaah so that he could pray for us, then I found him and he صَلَّى اللَّه عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ said : Recite. So I did not say anything, then he said : Recite. So I did not say anything, and he said : Recite, so I said : what should I recite? He said : recite :
“قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ”
‘Say that Allaah is the One.’ And the last two soorahs (al-muawaathatayan) in the evening and the morning, three times for it will suffice you for everything.
——————-
9 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :
Indeed the major supplication for forgiveness is to say
اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ رَبِّي لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ خَلَقْتَنِي وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ وَأَنَا عَلَى عَهْدِكَ وَوَعْدِكَ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا صَنَعْتُ أَبُوءُ لَكَ بِذَنْبِي وَأَبُوءُ لَكَ بِنِعْمَتِكَ عَلَيَّ فَاغْفِرْ لِي فَإِنَّهُ لَا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ
O Allaah You are my Lord, there is none worthy of worship in truth except You, You created me and I am Your slave and I am abiding to Your covenant and promise as best as I can, I seek refuge in You from the evil that I have committed, I profess to you my sins and I acknowledge Your favour upon me, so forgive me verily no one forgives sins except you.
Allaahumma anta rabbee, la ilaha illa anta, Khalaqtanee, wa ana abduka, wa ana ala ahdika wa wa’dika mastata’tu, a’outhu bika min sharri ma sanatu, aboo’u laka bini’matika alayya, wa aboo’u bitahmbee, faghfirlee fa’innahu la yaghfiru ath-thunooba ‘illa ‘anta
so if the worshipper says this when the morning arrives, truly believing in it and he dies enters Paradise, and if he says this when the evening arrives truly believing in it enters Paradise.
——————-
10 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :
There is not one from amongst the worshippers, that if he says, in the morning of everyday an the evening of every night : –
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الَّذِي لَا يَضُرُّ مَعَ اسْمِهِ شَيْءٌ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَلَا فِي السَّمَاءِ وَهُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ
In the name of Allaah with whose name nothing is harmed what so ever, on this earth nor in the heavens, and He is the All Hearing and All Knowing
Bismil-lahil-lathee la yadhurru ma’a ‘issmihi shay’un fil ‘ardhi wa la fissama’i wa huwa ‘as-samee’ul –‘aleem
three times nothing harms him what so ever
.
——————-
11 – On the authority of Abu Huraira may Allaah be pleased with him, some one came to him to take from the charity – which the Prophet – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – had placed Abu Huraira to look after, and this person came night after night, so on the third night Abu Huraira said to him : I will take you to the Messenger of Allaah. So he said Why don’t you leave me and I will teach you some words that Allaah will benefit you by – and Abu Huraira was of those who were very attentive regarding good deeds – so that the person said to him: When you go to bed, read Ayaat ul-Kursi:
(الله لا إلهَ إلا هُوَ الحيُ القَيُومَ )
(( Allaah, none has the right to be worshipped except Him The Ever living, The One Who sustains and protects all that exists ))
until the end of the ayat, then this will continue to be a protection for you from Allaah, and shaytan will not be able to come near you until the morning arrives. The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said: He spoke the truth even though he is a liar, [ that was shaytan].
——————-
12 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:
Who ever recites the last two Ayaat from Soorah al-Baqara at night, those two verses will be sufficient for him.
——————-
13 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :
Shall I not show what will be better for you than a servant? If you lie down on your bed, then say SubhanAllaah 33 times, and say al-hamdulillaah 33 times, and say Allaahu akbar 34 times.
——————-
14 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :
Who ever wakes up at night, and says : –
لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَه،ُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْد،ُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ،الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ ،وَ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ ، وَلَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ ، وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ ،وَ لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ العليِ الْعَظِيمِ.
‘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, praise is for Him, and Far is Allaah from imperfection, and There is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, and Allaah is the Greatest, there is no capability nor is there any power except with Allaah the Most High the ‘Atheem.’ (Supreme)

La ilaha ‘illa Allaahu wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu wa huwa ala kulli shayin qadeer, Subhana allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu akbar
La hawla wa la quwwata illa billaahi ‘alial adheem

Then he says: اللهمَ اغْفِرْلي O Allaah forgive me, or he supplicates and his supplication is answered, and if he makes wudu and he pray then his prayer is accepted.
——————-
15– The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:
Who ever goes to bed with purification….there is not a hour of the night that he asks Allaah for something of good from this world and the hereafter, except that Allaah grants him that which he asked for.
——————-
16 – Abu Salma said that he heard Abu Qatada say that he heard the Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – say:
A good dream is from Allaah and a bad dream is from shaytaan, so if anyone sees something in his dream which he dislikes, then he should spit on his left side 3 times when he awakens, and he should seek refuge with Allaah from its evil, then it will not harm him if Allaah so wills.
——————-
17 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :
A good dream is from Allaah, so if any one of you sees something in his dream that he likes, then he should not relate it to anyone except the one whom he loves, and if he sees that which he dislikes, then he should not relate it to anyone, rather he should spit on his left side 3 times, and he should seek refuge with Allaah from the evil of the accursed shaytaan, and the evil of what he saw, then it will not harm him.
——————-
18– The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :
Our Lord –tabarak wa ta’ala descends every night to the lowest heavens, when there remains the last third part of the night, and He says whoever supplicates to me so that I may answer his supplication, whoever asks of me so that I may grant him what he asks for, whoever seeks my forgiveness so that I may forgive him.
——————-
19 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :
Indeed there is an hour from the night, which if a Muslim asks Allaah in that time from the good of the affairs of this world and the hereafter, then Allaah gives him of it, and that is in every night.
——————-
20 – On the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :
Whoever says, as he leaves from his house:
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ ، تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللَّهِ ،ولَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ تعالى
In the name of Allaah, I have placed my trust in Allaah, and there is no capability nor is there any power except with Allaah Ta ála
Bismillaahi tawwakaltu al ‘alaahi wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahi,
then it is said to him: indeed you have been saved, and you have been protected, and you have been guided, and shaytaan has been kept away from him, so another shaytaan says: how can you affect a man who has indeed been guided and saved and been protected?
——————-
21 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :
If a man enters his home, and he remembers Allaah when he enters and when he eats his food, the shaytaan says: there is no place for you to spend the night nor is there any dinner, and if he does not remember Allaah when he enters his house then the shaytaan says: you have found a place to spend the night and if he does not remember Allaah while he is eating his food then he says you have found food to eat.
——————-
22 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:
O my son if you enter your home then say salaams it will be a blessing for you and your family.
——————-
23 – When the Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – would enter the masjid he would say :
أَعُوذُ بِاللَّهِ الْعَظِيمِ وَبِوَجْهِهِ الْكَرِيمِ وَسُلْطَانِهِ الْقَدِيمِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ
I seek refuge with Allaah The Supreme and with His Noble Face, and His eternal authority from the accursed shaytaan –
A’outhu bil-lahil ‘atheemi, wa bi-wajhihil-kareem, wa bi-sultanihil-qadeem min ‘ash-shaytanir-rajeemi
then he said: if he says this supplication then the shaytaan says: this person has been protected from me for the rest of the day.
——————-
24 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:
If the people knew what was there (in benefit for them) in the adhaan and praying in the front row, and they could not get to it except by drawing lots, then they would draw lots.
——————-
25- The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :
There is none from the jinn, mankind and anything else that hears the reach of the muaddhin’s (the caller to pray) voice, except that they will testify for him on the day of Resurrection.
——————-
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.
——————-

Six Traps of Shaytaan

Bismillah ir Rahmaan ir Raheem
All praise belongs to Allah and may the prayers and blessings of Allah be upon Prophet Muhammad sallalahu ‘alayhe wasallam and his Companions.

As salaamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullah

Recently, I was listening to an audio lecture being played in Al-Baseerah’s Paltalk room (Live Senior Scholars of Ahlus Sunnah English Arabic) by

Shaykh Ahmed Muhammed Al-Munayee

Professor at Imaam Muhammed Islamic University in Saudi Arabia

on the topic of “Who is our Enemy?” in which the Shaykh speaks in detail about the tricks of how the Shaytaan deceives mankind and makes them fall into many evils until every evil that you see on the face of the Earth, the shaytaan has something to do with that evil.

The link below is a part of that audio lecture where the Shaykh is talking about the six levels that the Shaytaan tries to get mankind to fall into. A wonderful explanation mashaAllah. To read about them, please go here.

Disobeying the Rulers and Abandoning the Scholars

Read this beneficial article, may Allah bless all of you and save us from being from among those who incite rebellion and hatred in the hearts of the Muslims against our rulers. And know that this is not to say that we are happy with the mistakes of our rulers but rather we confirm to the Sunnah by making dua’ for them and we ask Allah to forgive them their mistakes and guide all of our Muslim rulers to the correct methodology of the pious predecessors. Ameen.

On Openly Criticising the Muslim Ruler

April 11, 2008 2 comments
On openly criticising the Muslim ruler.
Question:

Is it permissible to openly criticise the Muslim ruler in front of a gathering and the people?

Answer:

We have spoken about this issue many times before! It is not permissible to speak about the rulers because this brings about evil and differing in the society and it splits the unity of the Muslims and cause hatred between the ruler and the ruled. And this splitting and evil leads to rebellion against the ruler and the shedding of blood and matters which have blameworthy consequences. So if you have a comment about them, take it to the ruler secretly by visiting him, if possible, or by writing to him or by informing someone who can convey it to the ruler as a sincere advice to him, and it should be done secretly not openly and this has been mentioned in the hadeeth, “Whoever wishes to advise the ruler, then let him not mention it in public, rather let him take the ruler by his hand. So if he listens then that is that, and if not then he has fulfilled that which was upon him.” And this meaning has been reported from the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahualaihi wasallam).

A Description of the Muslim Youth

The description of the muslim youth

Shaykh Zayd al-Madkhalee

The description and the traits that are a must for the muslim youth to adorn himself with are : to establish and apply the meaning of Islaam in his life.
Islaam its meaning is submission to Allaah. And the meaning of submission to Allaah is :

– doing that which is obligatory
– staying far from the prohibitions
– following the Prophet (sallahAllaahu alayhi wasallam) ; in all that which he came with – in the collective issues and the details of these issues – by speech , actions , manners , and behavior.

This is because the muslim does not have a role-model except the Prophets , the messengers and those who followed them from the pious people : thus this is the method for the muslim to take his examples to be followed . Those who are from the people of good and success.

Because these are the people who call to the path of Allaah , and they only do this by the knowledge they possess – because calling to Allaah is necessitated by having knowledge.

And they are the people who fear Allaah The Most Majestic , so it is upon the muslim to be like these people – and be someone who fears Allaah.

And they are the people who preserve the obligations of Allaah – in secrecy and outwardly , in travel or in their homelands- and in all situations ; it is upon the muslim to be like this also.

So when the Muslim sees in his self that he is sticking to the Book of his Lord , and the guidance of His prophet (sallahAllaahu alayhi wasallam) ; then this is a sign of goodness , and this is the source of uprightness.
So he should praise and thank Allaah The Mighty , The Most Majestic – on this , and he should stick on to it .

And if he sees in himself an attraction to the callers of evil, and innovations, and corruption, and deviations, and he is hastening to their evil : then he has done wrong on his self , such that he has placed his hand in the hand of shaytaan ; so the shaytaan took hold of him by his forehead and led him to the Hell fire ; and what an evil abode it is.

And let him have mercy –in his self- to every muslim , and specifically the youth have to have mercy on themselves – so as to gain mercy in their souls. [And this is through] :

First : By accompanying the people of knowledge and goodness.
Second : Sitting in the gatherings of legislated remembrances and sittings of knowledge.
Third : Abandoning evil and its people.
Fourth : By grasping an immense portion from the Book of his Lord (The Qur’an) , and the Sunnah of His prophet (sallahAllaahu alayhi wasallam).

And by spending his life in every beneficial and good thing ; so that his life can be pure and blessed. And life does not become good , nor does it become joyful ; except if :

– it is a life of seeking knowledge and recitation ,
– and a life of seeking understanding (fiqh) of the religion of Allaah,
– and a life of accompanying and sitting with the best of people (the scholars and students),

Now this, is the good and blessed life which every Male and female muslim is supposed to be adamant in achieving and preserving.

Especially the youth – among those who are young in age and are pure in this age of theirs – it is rightful upon them in this age of theirs to preserve this purity and cleanliness ; and not to ‘taint’ or put dirt in their hearts , and their limbs ; by falling into sins and [also falling into] deviations :
which are only pleasing to the shaytaan and make angry Ar-Rahmaan (The Most Merciful) , and they lead the one who commits them into the punishment of the hell fire ; and what an evil abode it is.
