2nd Shawaal Just 5 Minutes

(1) Islaamic History The sincerity of Hadhrat Khaalid bin Waleed (RA)
Every act that the Sahabah (RA) carried out was filled with sincerity of intention and carried out only to please Allaah. They were therefore prepared to sacrifice even their positions of honour for the pleasure of Allaah. A sterling example of the sincerity of Hadhrat Khaalid bin Waleed (RA) was displayed when he was relieved of his position as commanding general of the Muslim army. When Hadhrat Umar (RA) relieved Hadhrat Khaalid (RA) of this post in the best interests of the Muslim state and appointed Hadhrat Abu Ubaydah bin Jarraah (RA) in this place, Hadhrat Khaalid (RA) addressed the people saying, “Ameerul Mu’mineen Umar (RA) has appointed as commander a person whom Rasulullaah (SAW) gave the title of ‘The most trustworthy person of this Ummah’.” He then handed over the command to Hadhrat Abu Ubaydah bin Jarraah (RA). Seeing this loyalty and sincerity from Hadhrat Khaalid bin Waleed (RA), Hadhrat Abu Ubaydah bin Jarraah (RA) then addressed the people saying, “I have heard Rasulullaah (SAW) say that Khaalid is a sword from amongst the swords of Allaah.” Although Hadhrat Khaalid (RA) desired martyrdom all his life, he was not destined to be martyed in the path of Allaah. When he was on his deathbed, he bequeathed that his horse and weapons be donated in the path of Allaah. He then passed away in Hims in the year 21 A.H.
(2) Rasulullaah (SAW)’s Miracle Rasulullaah (SAW) foretells the demise of his daughter Hadhrat Faatima (RA)
Before Rasulullaah (SAW) passed away, he informed his daughter Hadhrat Faatima (RA) that she would be the first of his family to meet him after he passes away. This then happened exactly as Rasulullaah (SAW) had mentioned.

[Bukhaari 3716, from Hadhrat Aa’isha (RA)]

(3) A Fardh Purity is necessary when entering the Masjid
Rasulullaah (SAW) stated that menstruating women and people in the state of Janaabah (in need of Ghusl) may not enter the Masjid.

[Abu Dawood 232, from Hadhrat Aa’isha (RA)]

(4) A Du’aa from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW) The Du’aa for wearing clothes
Rasulullaah (SAW) said that all a person’s past and future sins will be forgiven when he recites the following Du’aa when wearing his clothing:


اَلْحَمْدُ لِلهِ الَّذِيْ كَسَانِي هٰذَا وَرَزَقَنِيْهِ مِنْ غَيْرِ حَوْلٍ مِنِّيْ وَلَا قُوَّةٍ

TRANSLATION: All praise belongs to Allaah Who has granted me this clothing to wear without any effort or exertion from myself.

[Abu Dawood 4023, from Hadhrat Mu’aadh bin Anas (RA)]

(5) An Important Act and its Virtue Recitation of the Qur’aan
Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Recite the Qur’aan because it will be an intercessor for its reciter on the Day of Qiyaamah.”

[Muslim 1874, from Hadhrat Abu Umaamah (RA)]

(6) A Sin Spreading corruption
Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “(The evil-doers are) Those who break the promise (pact) they made to Allaah after agreeing to it, who cut off those things that Allaah has ordered that they join (such as family ties), and who spread corruption (mischief) on earth. These are certainly the losers (because they are headed for Jahannam)”.

[Surah Baqara, verse 27]

(7) This World Those who pray for the good of this world
Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “From among man there are those (the Kaafiroon) who say, “O our Rabb, grant us in this world.” (They are then granted their needs in this world whereas) They shall have no share (of good) in the Aakhirah”.

[Surah Baqarah, verse 200]

(8) The Aakhirah Punishment in the grave
Rasulullaah (SAW) once entered an orchard belonging to the Banu Najjaar tribe, in which there were a few graves. When his mule suddenly became startled, Rasulullaah (SAW) remarked, “She has become startled because the dead are being punished in their graves. Had I not feared that you would stop burying your dead, I would have allowed you people to also hear the sounds.”

[Muslim 7213, from Hadhrat Zaid bin Thaabit (RA)]

(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW) Bodily pain
Hadhrat Uthmaan bin Abul Aas (RA) once came to Rasulullaah (SAW) and complained of bodily pain he was suffering. Rasulullaah (SAW) told him to place his hand over the painful portion and to then recite بِسْمِ اللهِ (Bismillaah) three times, followed by seven times of:


أَعُوْذُ بِاللّہِ وَ قُدْرَتِهِ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا أَجِدُ وَ أُحَاذِرُ

TRANSLATION: I seek protection with Allaah and His power from the evil of what I am experiencing and what I fear.


The Sahabi (RA) was cured after reciting this and then taught the prescription to his family.

[Muslim 5737, from Hadhrat Uthmaan bin Abul Aas (RA)]

(10) Advice from

Rasulullaah (SAW)

Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Do not speak a lot unless you are engaging in the Dhikr of Allaah because this (speaking a lot that is not Dhikr) hardens the heart and a hard heart is furthest from (the mercy of) Allaah.”

[Tirmidhi 2411, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Umar (RA)]
