Slaughtering a sacrifice on Eid Al-Adha

The best deed one can perform during these ten days of Dhul-Hijjah is to slaughter a sacrifice. This command was mentioned by Allah, {And perform Salaah for your Sustainer and *sacrifice*.} Did you know that for the ten years the Prophet (saw) was in Madinah, he offered it every year without exception? So have you begun planning yours? There are a few days remaining and you should begin concluding your purchase soon. Look for a healthy animal and don’t hold back on your money. Don’t complain about the price or even brag about it as it is a form of charity. Try your utmost best to get involved in the process of slaughtering, eating the sacrifice yourself in the morning of Eid, and distributing to family, friends, and the poor. Every second of your effort is a huge reward.

The Prophet (saw) said, “There is nothing dearer to Allah Ta’ala during the days of sacrifice than the sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal shall come on the day of Qiyamah with its horns, hair and hooves (to be weighed in reward). The sacrifice is accepted by Allah Ta’ala before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore sacrifice with an open and happy heart.”

[Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, authenticated by Al-Albani]

How to preserve your humility in prayer

humility in prayer

1) Don’t be late and pray on time.

2) Prepare yourself for prayer by repeating after the adhan and completing the wudhu.

3) Eliminating any sort of disturbances around you.

4) Renew your intention and seek refuge with Allah from the shaytan.

5) Take your time when reciting and stop at every verse.

6) Give every position its proper right and make du’a in prostration because it is answered.

7) Remember who you are addressing (it is Allah!).

8) Remember death.

9) Know the meaning of the verses you are reciting.

10) Preserve the prescribed remembrances after the prayer.


Masha’Allah! An act equal to 55 yrs of worship!

When was the last time you doubled your reward multiple times?


Going to the mosque calmly

In another hadith in Bukhari and Muslim, Abu Qutadah said:

“We were praying with the Prophet (saws) when we heard the clamoring of some men. When they had prayed, the Prophet (saws) inquired: ‘What was the matter with you?’ They answered: ‘We were hurrying for the salah.’ He (saws) said: ‘Do not do that…when you come to the salah come in peace and calm, and pray what you can with congregation and complete what you have missed.’

We’ve all come across this at one point in time or might have done it ourselves: sprint to prayer! This ‘prayer rush’ usually occurs during the beginning of iqamah, primarily with those who have just arrived and want to catch the first rak’ah. Some of them literally run to the prayer line. This act definitely contradicts our Prophet’s advice. Therefore, even if you know the prayer has begun and you’re on your way to the mosque, don’t rush. Instead, walk with calmness and tranquility, Insha’Allah.


How can you make your entire day full of reward??

The solution is in this reminder..


Sadaqah extinguishes sins

sadaqah

Since we all commit sin, let’s picture it being like a wild fire buring our house. What would you do to put out the fire? Most likely, you’ll try to put it out with water, right? This is the example of charity to our sins. Even worse, our sins are burning our houses in the akhirah, so it’s time to put it out with charity.

The Prophet (salah allahu ‘alayhi wa salam) also said: “The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his Sadaqah (charity).” [Ahmad]
