Ganjaran Untuk Sohibul Quran

Daripada Abdullah bin ‘Amru, dari Nabi ﷺ baginda bersabda:

يُقَالُ يَعْنِي لِصَاحِبِ الْقُرْآنِ اقْرَأْ وَارْتَقِ وَرَتِّلْ كَمَا كُنْتَ تُرَتِّلُ فِي الدُّنْيَا فَإِنَّ مَنْزِلَتَكَ عِنْدَ آخِرِ آيَةٍ تَقْرَأُ بِهَا

Maksudnya: “Pada hari pengadilan kelak akan diseru kepada (sohibul Quran) ahli Al-Quran; Teruskanlah bacaan al-Quran mu dan teruskanlah menaiki tingkat demi tingkat syurga dan  bacalah dengan tartil sebagaimana kamu membacanya ketika di dunia, sesungguhnya tempat terakhirmu ada pada ayat terakhir yang kamu baca.”.

Riwayat al-Tirmizi (2914)

Dhuha Prayer

One of the sunnah prayers that every Muslim is strongly advised to conduct is the Dhuha prayer. The prayer, which is also referred to as al-Awwabin prayer, begins after the sun rises.

 Furthermore, the Prophet PBUH advised Abu Hurairah RA to never leave Dhuha prayer:

أَوْصَانِيْ خَلِيلِي صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ بِثَلاَثٍ: صِيَامِ ثَلاَثَةِ أَيَّامٍ مِنْ كُلِّ شَهْرٍ، وَرَكْعَتَي الضُّحَى، وَأَنْ أُوتِرَ قَبْلَ أَنْ أَنَامَ

“My friend (the Prophet (ﷺ) advised me to observe three things: (1) to fast three days a month; (2) to pray two rak`at of Dhuha prayer (forenoon prayer); and (3) to pray witr before sleeping.”

Sahih al-Bukhari (1880) and Sahih Muslim (721)

One benefit of the Dhuha prayer is that two rakaats are the same as our body’s 360 joints being donated.

This hadith is narrated by Imam Muslim:

From Abi Zar RA, the Prophet PBUH said:

يُصْبِحُ عَلَى كُلِّ سُلَامَى مِنْ أَحَدِكُمْ صَدَقَةٌ، فَكُلُّ تَسْبِيحَةٍ صَدَقَةٌ، وَكُلُّ تَحْمِيدَةٍ صَدَقَةٌ، وَكُلُّ تَهْلِيلَةٍ صَدَقَةٌ، وَكُلُّ تَكْبِيرَةٍ صَدَقَةٌ، وَأَمْرٌ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ صَدَقَةٌ، وَنَهْيٌ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ صَدَقَةٌ، وَيُجْزِئُ مِنْ ذَلِكَ رَكْعَتَانِ يَرْكَعُهُمَا مِنَ الضُّحَى

“In the morning charity is due from every bone in the body of every one of you. Every utterance of Allah’s glorification is an act of charity. Every utterance of praise of Him is an act of charity, every utterance of profession of His Oneness is an act of charity, every utterance of profession of His Greatness is an act of charity, enjoining good is an act of charity, forbidding what is distreputable is an act of charity, and two rak’ahs which one prays in the forenoon will suffice.”

Sahih Muslim (720)

Du’a When Life Gets Hard

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ جَهْدِ الْبَلَاءِ وَدَرَكِ الشَّقَاءِ وَسُوءِ الْقَضَاءِ وَشَمَاتَةِ الْأَعْدَاءِ

Meaning: “O Allah, I seek refuge in You from the difficulty of trials, from the misery of adversity, from the evil of fate, and from the joy of enemies.”

Sahih al-Bukhari (6347)

  • Heavy trials are for great people. Every time we successfully endure a trial, we indeed become stronger individuals.
  • May whatever trials and tribulations we need to face today be faced with strength, patience, and faith. Let us hope we remain steadfast for the days ahead.

The Bankrupt People in Hereafter

Abu Hurairah RA reported Allah’s Messenger ﷺ as saying:

أتَدْرُونَ مَنْ الْمُفْلِسُ قَالُوا الْمُفْلِسُ فِينَا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ مَنْ لَا لَهُ دِرْهَمَ وَلَا دِينَارَ وَلَا مَتَاعَ قَالَ الْمُفْلِسُ مِنْ أُمَّتِي يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ مَنْ يَأْتِي بِصَلَاةٍ وَصِيَامٍ وَزَكَاةٍ وَيَأْتِي قَدْ شَتَمَ عِرْضَ هَذَا وَقَذَفَ هَذَا وَأَكَلَ مَالَ هَذَا وَضَرَبَ هَذَا فَيُقْعَدُ فَيَقْتَصُّ هَذَا مِنْ حَسَنَاتِهِ وَهَذَا مِنْ حَسَنَاتِهِ فَإِنْ فَنِيَتْ حَسَنَاتُهُ قَبْلَ أَنْ يُقْضَى مَا عَلَيْهِ أُخِذَ مِنْ خَطَايَاهُمْ فَطُرِحَ عَلَيْهِ ثُمَّ طُرِحَ فِي النَّارِ

Do you know who is poor? They (the Companions of the Holy Prophet) said: A poor man amongst us is one who has neither dirham with him nor wealth. He (the Holy Prophet) said: The poor of my Umma would be he who would come on the Day of Resurrection with prayers and fasts and Zakat but (he would find himself bankrupt on that day as he would have exhausted his funds of virtues) since he hurled abuses upon others, brought calumny against others and unlawfully consumed the wealth of others and shed the blood of others and beat others, and his virtues would be credited to the account of one (who suffered at his hand). And if his good deeds fall short to clear the account, then his sins would be entered in (his account) and he would be thrown in the Hell-Fire.

Sahih Muslim (2581)

Praying For The Muslims In Their Absence

The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said:

دَعْوَةُ الْمَرْءِ الْمُسْلِمِ لأَخِيهِ بِظَهْرِ الْغَيْبِ مُسْتَجَابَةٌ عِنْدَ رَأْسِهِ مَلَكٌ مُوَكَّلٌ كُلَّمَا دَعَا لأَخِيهِ بِخَيْرٍ قَالَ الْمَلَكُ الْمُوَكَّلُ بِهِ آمِينَ وَلَكَ بِمِثْلٍ

“The supplication of a Muslim for his brother at his back (in his absence) is responded so long as he makes a supplication for blessings for his brother and the commissioned Angel says: Amen, and says: May it be for you too.”

Sahih Muslim (2733)

Du’a for Good End to All Matters

اللَّهُمَّ أَحْسِنْ عَاقِبَتَنَا فِي الْأُمُورِ كُلِّهَا، وَأَجِرْنَا مِنْ خِزْيِ الدُّنْيَا وَعَذَابِ الْآخِرَةِ

“O Allah, improve our end in all matters and protect us from the humiliation of this world and the punishment of the hereafter.”

Musnad Ahmad (17628)

Apabila Berlaku Sesuatu Yang Tidak Diingini

Abu Hurairah RA meriwayatkan bahawa Rasulullah ﷺ bersabda:

فَإِنْ أَصَابَكَ شَيْءٌ فَلَا تَقُلْ لَوْ أَنِّي فَعَلْتُ كَذَا وَكَذَا وَلَكِنْ قُلْ قَدَّرَ اللَّهُ وَمَا شَاءَ فَعَلَ فَإِنَّ لَوْ تَفْتَحُ عَمَلَ الشَّيْطَانِ

“Jika sesuatu yang tidak elok dan tidak disukai menimpa kamu, janganlah berkata: ‘Kalaulah aku lakukan sebegini maka akan berlaku begini’. Tetapi ucapkanlah: (Qaddarallahu Wa Mashaa Fa’al) ‘Sudah takdir Allah dan Allah melakukan apa sahaja yang Dia kehendaki’. Kerana sesungguhnya perkataan ‘kalau’ akan membuka pintu untuk kerja buat syaitan.”

Riwayat Muslim (2664)

Maintaining Silaturrahim

Narrated Anas bin Malik RA, The Prophet ﷺ said:

مَنْ أَحَبَّ أَنْ يُبْسَطَ لَهُ فِي رِزْقِهِ، وَيُنْسَأَ لَهُ فِي أَثَرِهِ، فَلْيَصِلْ رَحِمَهُ

“Whoever loves that he be granted more wealth and that his lease of life be prolonged then he should keep good relations with his Kith and kin.”

Sahih al-Bukhari (5986)

Fasting 6 Days in Shawwal

Abu Ayyub al-Ansari (Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah’s Messenger ﷺ as saying:

مَنْ صَامَ رَمَضَانَ ثُمَّ أَتْبَعَهُ سِتًّا مِنْ شَوَّالٍ كَانَ كَصِيَامِ الدَّهْرِ

He who observed the fast of Ramadan and then followed it with six (fasts) of Shawwal. it would be as if he fasted perpetually.

Sahih Muslim (1164)

  • Fasting six days during the month of Shawwal after Ramadan is a recommended practice in Islam.
  • Fasting these six days is considered a Sunnah mu’akkadah (highly recommended), and while it’s not obligatory, it carries significant rewards.
  • It’s important to note that these six days can be fasted consecutively or separately throughout the month of Shawwal. However, it’s recommended to avoid fasting on Eid al-Fitr itself and to begin these six fasts after the day of Eid.
