REVIVE A SUNNAH – Attending funerals and offering the funeral prayer


It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllahu ‘alyhi wasallam) said •► “Whoever attends a funeral until he offers the (funeral) prayer will have one QIRAAT (of reward) and whoever attends until the burial is done will have two QIRAATS.” It was said: “What are the two qiraats?” He (sallAllahu ‘alyhi wasallam) said •► “Like two great mountains!”

[Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1261; Muslim, 945]

REVIVE A SUNNAH – Be merciful And compassionate with your children, hug and kiss them


Abu Hurayrah (radi Allahu ‘anhu) said: The Messenger of Allah (sallAllahu ‘alyhi wasallam) kissed al-Hasan ibn ‘Ali, when al-Aqra‘ ibn Haabis al-Tameemi was sitting with him. al-Aqra‘ said: I have ten children and I have never kissed one of them. The Messenger of Allah (sallAllahu ‘alyhi wasallam) looked at him, then he said •►“The one who does not show mercy will not be shown mercy.” (Saheeh al-Bukhaari #5997)

REVIVE A SUNNAH – When the evening comes…


When the evening comes bring your children inside the house, close your doors, cover your vessels of food & drink and mention the name of Allah
revive a sunnah
◕ It was narrated from Jaabir ibn ‘Abd-Allaah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (sallAllahu ‘alyhi wasallam) said •►“When the wings of the night spread – or when evening comes – keep your children in, for the devils come out at that time. Then when part of the night has passed, let them go. And close the doors and mention the name of Allaah, for the shaytaan does not open a closed door. And tie up your waterskins and mention the name of Allaah, and cover your vessels and mention the name of Allaah, even if you only put something over them, and extinguish your lamps.”
[Narrated by al-Bukhaari – 3280 and Muslim – 2012]

◕ Jaabir (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said •► “Do not let your animals and children go out when the sun has set, until the first part of the night is over, for the devils come out when the sun sets, until the first part of the night is over.” [Muslim – 2013]

al-Nawawi (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:
►►This hadeeth includes a number of types of goodness and etiquette which combine the interests of both this world and the Hereafter. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) enjoined these etiquettes which are the cause of safety from the harm of the shaytaan, and Allaah has made all of these means causes of being safe from his harm. He is not able to uncover vessels or untie waterskins or open doors or harm children or others if these means are followed. This is like what it says in the saheeh hadeeth, that if a person says Bismillah when entering his house, the shaytaan says “No place to stay” i.e., we have no authority to stay overnight with these people. And if a man says when having intercourse with his wife, “O Allaah, keep the shaytaan away from us and keep the shaytaan away from what You bestow upon us (of offspring),” that will be a cause of the child being kept safe from the harm of the shaytaan. This is similar to this hadeeth, which is well known among saheeh ahaadeeth.

This hadeeth encourages us to remember Allaah in these cases and other similar situations. Our companions said: It is mustahabb to mention the name of Allaah over everything that matters, and to praise Allaah at the beginning of everything that matters, because of the well known hasan hadeeth.

The words “wings of the night” is a well known phrase that refers to the darkness of the night. And it was said that it refers to when the darkness of night comes.

The words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) “Keep your children in” mean: prevent them from going out at that time.

The words “for the devils come out at that time” mean that there is the fear at this time that children may be subjected to the devils’ harm because there are so many of them at that time. And Allaah knows best. End quote.
Sharh Muslim (13/185).

Jesus… a Follower of Muhammad?


jesus_birth_islamThe Second Coming of Jesus

There are a large number of authentic sayings of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) that clearly indicate the second coming of Jesus.

Abu Hurairah reported the Prophet as saying:

By the One in Whose hand is my self, definitely the son of Mariam will soon descend among you as a just judge, and he will break the cross, kill the pig and abolish the jizyah, and wealth will be so abundant that no one will accept it, until a single prostration will be better than the world and everything in it. (Al-Bukhari)

Jabir ibn `Abdullah said, “I heard the Prophet saying, ‘A party of my nation will never stop fighting for the truth victoriously until the Day of Rising.’ He said, ‘Then Jesus son Mary (peace be upon him) will descend and their amir will say, “Come and lead us in prayer,” but he will say, “No. Some of you are amirs over others,” as Allah’s showing honor to this nation.'” (Muslim)

A Follower of Muhammad

The above two hadiths show that according to Islam, Jesus will return to the earth as a follower of the final Prophet Muhammad. And at the second coming, it is inconceivable that Jesus will bring a new Law.

Even at the first coming, he was working within the framework of the earlier Law of Moses. So, if Jesus does not follow the Law of Muhammad, he should follow the Law of Moses, which is most unlikely.

We should remember that the religion of Allah has been completed through the final Prophet, and so there is no question of another Law at all; so Jesus has got to follow the Law of Muhammad.

We know that some “Christians” do not follow Jesus. They follow St Paul and his version of the religion of Jesus. So one of the first duties of Jesus will be to bring the Christians back to the true religion he preached and practiced, namely submission to the One God.

Also, the Jews who are still waiting for the Messiah will be made to realize that the real Messiah was indeed Jesus and they need to recognize that fact, and follow the Messiah (Christ) Jesus.

When the Christians and the Jews follow Jesus, they will be Muslims. By the second coming of Jesus, the confusions regarding Jesus will disappear and we can imagine a situation where Jews, Christians and Muslims join together to pray behind Islam’s prophet Jesus, or behind a Muslim Imam.

Three Expectations

One important point to note in this connection is the correlation between the expectations about the coming of a prophet or messiah in all the three Abrahamic religions.

Jews expect the Mashiach (Messiah; literally “the Anointed One” ) as a political and military deliverer and king. The Christians believe the Messiah to be a divine incarnation and “savior”,  who came to liberate the people from sin. And the Muslims believe the Messiah to be a sign to the world sent by God with a significant prophetic mission to the Children of Israel.

In all the three cases the word, Messiah (Arabic: Masih) is used for the expected prophet. Both Christians and Muslims believe Jesus to be the Messiah, while the Jews reject him and continue to expect the Messiah even now.

No one can deny the continuity of the same religious tradition through the three religions, though sectarianism has clouded the whole issue of common religious heritage.

One of the important links among the three religions ought to be the Messiah; especially as he serves as a link between Judaism and Islam. Because, he is the expected Messiah of the Jews, who clearly foretells to his followers of the coming of the Paracletos – the final Prophet.

Besides, he is properly described by Allah Almighty in the Qur’an as a “sign” to the world. But most people did not properly understand the sign and consequently misconstrued his mission.

Jews Believing in Jesus?

As Jesus was a sign from Allah, there was an aura of wonder and mystery around him, which caused a lot of speculation among his followers after his time.

And there ought to be a way of clearing the cloud of mystery around Jesus before the end of the world. So Allah Almighty says in the Qur’an what means:

*{That they said in boast, “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Apostle of Allah”;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no certain knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not. Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise. And there is none of the People of the Book but must believe in him before his death; and on the Day of Judgment he will be a witness against them…}* (Quran’ 4:157-159)

Indeed these verses have generated a lot of controversy about the implication of certain words. A few points are worthy of note here:

The reference is clearly to the future; and the verse tells us of something that will happen in the future which will make the People of the Book to believe in Jesus. And we should note that by “the People of the Book” not merely the Christians but also the Jews are meant.

Referring to the doubts and confusion in the minds of the people (i.e. People of the Book) regarding “the death” and the “raising” of Jesus, Allah emphatically tells us that they did neither kill him nor crucify him;  but raised him up to Himself.

Believing in Jesus

The verses quoted above clearly say that all the People of the Book will believe in Jesus before he dies. Obviously, “believe in him” indicates the right belief about Jesus, that is, that Jesus was a prophet of God preaching His Oneness.

We know that neither the present day Jews nor the present day Christians have this belief about Jesus. So the reference in the verse is obviously about future Jews and Christians who will be made to realize the truth about the Messiah and will have to accept that truth.

The occasion for this is when Jesus himself appears again and clears all misunderstandings about him. And then the Jews will realize that he was the Messiah they were expecting; and the Christians will realize that he was not the Son of God who died on the cross. And if there are any Muslims who reject the return of Jesus, they too will realize the truth about him.

And in the above verse, we may note the expression “before he dies”. This expression is attributed to People of the Book sometimes; i.e. in the sense of “before their death”.

But this cannot be; if so it would mean that all the Jews and Christians who lived after Jesus’ time would realize the truth of Jesus before their death till Judgment Day.This is most unlikely. Rather the correct meaning of the verse must be that Jesus, on his second coming will bring the Jews and the Christians of that future time, not only to the truth of himself, but also to the true religion.

A careful evaluation of all the points related to the matter would lead us to the conclusion that Islam teaches that Jesus will come again and he will not bring a new Law then; so he would follow the Law of Muhammad.

‘Religious’ Violence in Nigeria fueled by Poverty and Ethnicity?


Is the violence in Nigeria centered around Muslim-Christian tensions and the implementation of Sharī‘ah by the Boko Haram?

chaos in nigeriaJean Herskovits, a professor of history at the State University of New York, writes:

…the news media and American policy makers are chasing an elusive and ill-defined threat; there is no proof that a well-organized, ideologically coherent terrorist group called Boko Haram even exists today. Evidence suggests instead that, while the original core of the group remains active, criminal gangs have adopted the name Boko Haram to claim responsibility for attacks when it suits them.

She has written on Nigerian politics since 1970.

Muslim groups in the North Nigeria have also denounced the violence, though many in the north remain angry over the high unemployment and poverty crushing the region as politicians embezzle billions of dollars of the country’s oil revenues.

Mainstream media reports that the targeting of minority Christians in the North triggered reprisals by Christians on Muslims in the south, even though the majority of the two communities have shown in the past they can live in peace. That tension over the Christmas Day attacks resulted in retaliatory attacks on mosques in recent weeks. Last Tuesday, during the fuel price protests an angry mob attacked a mosque and school in southwest Nigeria, killing at least five people and forcing 3,000 Muslims to flee the area.

But after our post on the Church Bombings in Nigeria, the following insight was shared by a Nigerian, Umm Sulaim, who lives there. She is an active commentor on MuslimMatters. She gives us background on the ethnic conflict in the region that crosses religious lines.

The Religion Of Pandemonium

By Umm Sulaim

On the exterior, it appears Islam spurs the actions of the dominating inhabitants of Northern Nigeria.  Everyone is led to believe so.  Christians understand the discrimination against them is religious. The deception is revealed when one is a Muslim and happens to be of a different tribe than the Hausa-Fulanis.

Non-Hausa-Fulani Muslims are being attacked and murdered just as easily as Christians. The Islamic teacher of an ustādh of mine was murdered in Kaduna. Imagine how old he was.  When his home was invaded by the Hausa-Fulanis, he informed them that he was a Muslim.  The response he got was: This is not religious, but tribal.

Here in Sokoto, a Christian acquaintance tried to intervene to halt the brutal assault of a Muslim woman by Hausa-Fulani men.  Pleading with the attackers, she reminded them the victim was a Muslim like them, why were they beating her up to the point of lifting and smashing her on the ground?  A Hausa woman retorted: This is not about religion.  It is tribal.

No one spoke out against what was going on, except one Muslim woman. Eventually, the Christian summoned the victim’s mother, who naturally was determined to report the incident to the police.  The former pleaded it would only make things worse and convinced her against it. Then Hausa-Fulanis threatened to kill the brother of the Christian for informing the woman of what they were doing to her daughter.

If religion is involved in the conduct of Hausa-Fulanis, it is not Islam, but a newly-found religion: Hausa.

…………………….

This narrative evokes comparison to a similar story that led to the breakup of the Sudan. Recent reports from the predominantly Christian South Sudan confirm that centuries old ethnic violence is ravaging the newly independent nation, which has had billions in aid pumped in by Western countries; countries which actively supported its bid for independence from pre-dominantly Muslim North.

“Eight thousand fighters just besieged this small town in the middle of a vast expanse, razing huts, burning granaries, stealing tens of thousands of cows and methodically killing hundreds, possibly thousands, of men, women and children hiding in the bush.

The raiders had even broadcast their massacre plans.

‘We have decided to invade Murleland and wipe out the entire Murle tribe on the face of the earth,’ the attackers, from a rival ethnic group, the Nuer, warned in a public statement.”

Poverty can Divide and can Unite

Back in Nigeria there have been several strikes over the fuel subsidy crisis, uniting the people of the country despite the perpetrators of violence who seek to tear them apart. Tolu Ongunlesi, a journalist says,

…I have observed, and participated in the series of public protest rallies now known as ‘Occupy Nigeria’ — tens of thousands of Nigerians across the country and in the Diaspora, trooping to the streets to protest the insensitivity of a government that cut fuel subsidies benefiting a largely poor population whilst itself guilty of astonishing levels of profligacy.

Labor unions ended the crippling nationwide strike Monday in Nigeria after the country’s president, Jonathan Goodluck, partially restored subsidies that keep gasoline prices low, though it took soldiers deployed in the streets to stop demonstrations in Africa’s most populous nation.  In some cities, the youth carried placards with inscriptions such as “Good luck, stop bombing our brothers, you are the Boko Haram,” “Nigerians say no to fuel subsidy removal,” “we say no to fuel subsidy removal, hardship has no religious face,” “prosecute the oil cabal now,” “removal of fuel subsidy is worse than Boko Haram,” and “no democracy in Nigeria: be informed Mr. President,” among others.

“My Lord! Build for me a home with You in Jannah…”


And Allah has set forth an example for those who believe, the wife of Pharaoh when she said: “My Lord! Build for me a home with You in Paradise (al-Jannah), and save me from Pharaoh and his work, and save me from the people who are Dhaalimoon (polytheists, wrongdoers, and disbelievers in Allah”[Soorah At-Tahreem 66:11]

This similitude is brought forth by Allah for the benefit of the believers affirming that they would not be harmed by their intermingling with the disbelievers if they were in need of them. As Allah stated:  “The believers do not take the disbelievers as friends and protectors instead of the believers. Whosoever does that will never be helped by Allah in any way, except if you indeed fear a danger from them…” [Soorah Aale ‘Imraan 3:28]

Qataadah stated:  Pharaoh was among the haughtiest of the people of the earth and greatest in disbelief and by Allah his wife was not harmed by the disbelief of her husband when she obeyed her Rabb. This was so that people would realize that Allah judges with justice and takes no one to account except for his (own) sins.

Ibn Jareer stated (after mentioning a chain of narrators):  “The wife of Pharaoh was tortured under the sun and when he would go away from her the angels would cover her with their wings. And she was shown her home in Al-Jannah.”

Ibn Jareer also narrates from another chain:  “The wife of Pharaoh asked:  Who was the victor? (i.e. between Pharaoh and his magicians and Musa and his brother) It was said: Musa and Haaroon.  So she said, “I believe in the Lord (Rabb) of Musa and Haaroon.”  So Pharaoh sent for her and ordered:  “Look for the biggest boulder you can find and if she sticks to her words then cast her upon it. If she takes back her words then she will remain my wife.”  When they went to her she raised her eyes to the sky and saw her home in Al-Jannah so she stuck by her words and her soul was taken from her so nothing was thrown onto the boulder except a soulless corpse.

Regarding her words, My Lord! Build for me a home with You in Paradise (al-Jannah), the scholars said: “Aktaaratul-Jaar qabl ad-Daar (She chose the neighbour before the dwelling.)”  A statement like this is related in a marfou’ hadeeth.

… and save me from Pharaoh and his work… That is ‘Rescue me from him and I am clear before You of his (evil) deeds’

… and save me from the people who are Dhaalimoon (polytheists, wrongdoers, and disbelievers in Allah…

This woman was Aasiyah Bint Muzaahim (radiAllahu ‘anhaa).

Abu Ja’far Ar-Raazi relates that Abu ‘Aaliyah said: The Iman of the wife of Pharaoh came through the wife of the treasurer of Pharaoh. She (the wife of the treasurer) was sitting and combing the hair of Pharaoh’s daughter when the comb fell from her hand.  She exclaimed: “Wretched is the one who disbelieves in Allah!”  The daughter of Pharaoh said, “Do you have a Rabb (Lord) other than my father?”  She replied, “My Rabb, your Rabb the Rabb of your father and the Rabb of all there is!

So the daughter of Pharaoh slapped and beat her and told her father. Pharaoh sent for her and said, “Do you worship a Rabb other than me?” She replied, “Yes. My Rabb, your Rabb and the Rabb of all there is and He alone do I worship.”

So Pharaoh tortured her and had her bound to a stake, tightly tying her hands and legs and set vipers upon her and she was left in that state. He came to her one day and asked, “Do you give up?” She said to him, “My Rabb, your Rabb and the Rabb of everything is Allah!”  So he said to her, “I will slaughter your son in front of you for your mouth (i.e. statement) if you don’t stop.”  So she said to him, “Do what you will.

So he slaughtered her son before her face and the soul of her son gave her good news saying: “Glad tidings my mother, you will have the reward of such-and-such from Allah.”

She then became patient and forbearing until Pharaoh again came to her one day and said the same as he had before. She replied as before, so he slaughtered another of her sons before her and his soul also gave her the good news, “Be patient my mother, for you will have the reward of such-and-such from Allah.”

The narrator continued:  The wife of Pharaoh heard the speech of the eldest son’s soul and then the younger one as well. So the wife of Pharaoh believed and Allah took the soul of the wife of Pharaoh’s treasurer.  The veil (of darkness and misguidance) was removed from the wife of Pharaoh until she could see her (i.e. the woman’s) reward, her station and her honor in Al-Jannah so her faith, surety, and absolute veracity and sincerity increased and Allah brought out her faith to Pharaoh.

He said to his cronies, “What do you know about Aasiyah Bint Muzaahim?”  They proceeded to praise her so he said to them, “She worships other than me.”  So they said to him, “Execute her!”

So she was put on a stake and her hands and feet tied tightly upon it and she called upon her Rabb. She said, My Lord! Build for me a home with You in Paradise (al-Jannah) and this was accepted for her in Pharaoh’s presence so she laughed when she was shown her dwelling place in Al-Jannah.

Pharaoh said: Aren’t you astounded by her madness?! She laughs as I torture her!”

Thus Allah took her soul to Al-Jannah, radiAllahu ‘anhaa.

REVIVE A SUNNAH – Do Not Sleep On Your Stomach!


sleeping-on-stomachTakhfah ibn Qays al-Ghifaari said: When I was lying on my stomach in the masjid just before dawn, a man nudged me with his foot and said •►“This manner of lying is hated by Allaah.” I looked and saw that it was the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllahu ályhi wasallam).
[Narrated by Ahmad and Abu Dawood in al-Sunan, Kitaab al-Adab, no. 5040, graded as Saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood].

Ibn Takhfah al-Ghifaari that Abu Dharr said: The Prophet (sallAllahu ályhi wasallam) passed by me and I was lying on my stomach. He prodded me with his foot and said •► “O Junaydib! This is how the people of Hell lie.”
[Ibn Majaah – 3724, al-Tirmidhi, no. 2798, Saheeh al-Jaami’, 2270-2271]

Why is it forbidden to sleep on ones belly? Is it forbidden for both men and women?

Praise be to Allaah.

The reason for this is that it was forbidden by the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), who left no good thing but he told us about it and left no evil thing but he warned us against it. Ya’eesh ibn Tihfah al-Ghifaari reported that his father said: “I stayed as a guest with the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) with those of the poor whom he hosted. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) came out in the night to check up on his guests, and saw me lying on my stomach. He prodded me with his foot and said, ‘Do not lie in this manner, for it is a way of lying that Allaah hates.’” According to another report, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) prodded him with his foot and woke him up, and said, “Do not lie like this, for this is how the people of Hell lie.” (Reported by Ahmad, al-Fath al-Rabbaani, 14/244-245; by al-Tirmidhi, no. 2798, Shaakir edn.; and by Abu Dawood, al-Sunan, Kitaab al-Adab, no. 5040, al-Da’aas edn. Also reported in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 2270-2271)

This is a general prohibition that applies to both males and females, because the basic principle is that rulings apply to both sexes, except in cases where it is indicated that there is a differentiation between the two. And Allaah knows best.

Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid

REVIVE A SUNNAH – “WHEN MEETING PEOPLE”


revive-a-sunnahThere are some sunnah on meeting people, such as ‘Give Salutation’, ‘Lengthen Greeting’, ‘Smiling’, ‘Shaking Hands’, & ‘Saying Kalimah Tayyibah’. How many times we meet people in a day? Imagine the rewards we will get by applying these! MashaAllaah !!!

Sunnahs when Meeting People:

1 ➲ Give Tasleem (Salutation)

The Prophet (PBUH) was asked “which type of Islam is the best?” ; and he (PBUH) answered: ” to feed people and salute the people you know or don’t know”

[Al-Bukharee, The Book of Eeman, Hadith 12; Muslim, The Book of Eeman, Hadith 39]

2 ➲ Lengthen the greeting

A man approached the Prophet (PBUH) and saluted him saying “As-salaamu Alaykum (peace upon you)”, the Prophet (PBUH) returned the salutation and after the man sat down, the Prophet said: “that was ten”; then another man came and said “As-salaamu Alaykum wa rahmatullah (peace and mercy of Allah upon you)” the Prophet (PBUH) said: “that was twenty”; then a third man came and said ” As-salaamu Alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh (peace and mercy and blessings of Allah upon you) the Prophet (PBUH) said: “that was thirty”

[Aboo Daawood, The Book of Good Manners; Muslim, The Book of Eeman, Hadith 5195, 2689; At-Tirmidhee, The Book of Asking Permission and Good Manners]

Look how much reward the first two wasted because they didn’t say the whole Islamic salutation to get the complete reward of thirty good deeds. And as a good deed it is at least considered ten; the sum would have been three hundred good deeds and might be more. As salutation take place many times a day; you should train yourself to utter the full Islamic salutation to get that great reward.

Do not forget that it is also from the Sunnah that whoever decides to leave a person that he should say the complete salaam:

“When one of you comes to a gathering, then say ‘Salaam’, and if someone decides to leave, then say ‘Salaam’, and the first does not have more right than the last.”

[Aboo Daawood, The Book of Good Manners; Muslim, The Book of Eeman, Hadith 5208, 2706; At-Tirmidhee, The Book of Asking Permission and Good Manners]

3 ➲ Smiling

The Prophet (PBUH) said: ” do not consider any of the good things as insignificant; even if it is that you meet your brother with a cheerful face” [Muslim, The Book Piety, Joining of The Ties of Relationship and Good Manners, Muslim, The Book of Eeman, Hadith 2626]

4 ➲ Shaking hands

Our Prophet (PBUH) said: ” there are not two Muslims who meet with each other and shake hands of each other, except that they are forgiven them before their depart (from each other) ”

[Aboo Daawood, The Book of Good Manners; Muslim, The Book of Eeman, Hadith 5212, 2727; At-Tirmidhee, The Book of Asking Permission and Good Manners]

An Nawawi said: you should know that it is preferred to shake hands in every time they meet. So dears, try to shake hands with whoever you salute with a smiley face; thus you will be applying three sunnahs at once.

5 ➲ Say kalimah Tayyibah

Allah says: ” Say to My Slaves to say that which is better. Verily, Shaytaan incites to evil between them. Verily, Shaytaan is for mankind a clear enemy.” (Al Israa 17: 53)

The Prophet (PBUH) said: ” A Kalimah Tayyibah is charity”

[Al-Bukharee, The Book of Jihaad, Hadith 2989; Muslim, The Book of Az-Zakaah, Hadith 1009]

• A Kalimah Tayyibah (Kind words) include: Ath-thikr (remembrance of Allah), du’aa, salutation, rightful complementation, good manners, virtues and good deeds.

• Kind words are magical as they win others’ hearts.

• Kind words are proofs how enlightened the heart of the believer is. So you should embrace your whole life with kind words; your spouse, children, neighbors, friends, servants and everyone you deal with needs kind words.

✦ REVIVE A SUNNAH ⇨ “REVIVING ASPECTS OF THE SUNNAH IS A DEED THAT WILL BRING AN IMMENSE REWARD” ✦
The Prophet (peace and blessing of Allaah be upon him) said:► “Whoever revives an aspect of my Sunnah that is forgotten after my death, he will have a reward equivalent to that of the people who follow him, without it detracting in the least from their reward.” [Reported by al-Tirmidhi, 7/443; this is a hasan hadeeth because of corroborating asaaneed].
