In the Court of Allah Ta'ala

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

‘[On the Day of Judgment], the feet of a person will not move 
until he is asked regarding :

(1)               His life; how did he spend it,
(2)               His knowledge; how did he act upon it,
(3)               His Wealth; how did he acquire it (and)
(4)               How did he spend it, and
(5)               His body, how did he use it.’

Book | Durood Shareef

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem


A Great Ibaadah 

"One very great Ibaadah that Allah (Jalla Jalaaluhu) has blessed this Ummah with, which is an enjoyable and pleasurable Ibaadah, is the recitation of Durood Shareef and sending Salawaat upon 
Nabi (Sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam). 

There are many types of Ibaadah like how there are many types or work and tasks 
a person has to do or undertake.

For example, one person is a labourer and has to fulfil many chores, like digging holes, etc. Another person works in an air-conditioned office, in comfort, and has light and easy tasks to fulfil. yet he takes a huge salary. 

Similarly, there are two paths of Dien. The one path is that which consists of lots of Mujahadah (striving and effort) and the other is to work a little, but receive great rewards in return.

One of the types of the latter path is the recitation of Durood Shareef. This is such an Ibaadah that can be done in the total comfort of one's home. A person should let the meter of his Durood Shareef run in the comfort of his home and thereby become the Muqarrib (close servant) 
of Allah (Jalla Jalaaluhu).

Amongst the closest servants to Allah (Jalla Jalaaluhu) are those who recite Durood Shareef in abundance, and why should it not be so when Allah (Jalla Jalaaluhu) Himself, has made mention of the honourable and lofty status of Nabi (Sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam) in the Qur`aan Shareef."

The worldly life | Part of the journey

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu 'alayhi wasallam) said:

“What have I to do with this world? I and this world are as a rider that takes shelter/shade beneath a tree. Then he goes on his way, and leaves it behind him.”

For Protection of One’s Religion, Life, Offspring, Family and Wealth

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Hazrat Ma’qal bin Yasaar (RA) narrated that he once expressed his fears to Nabi (Sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) in regards to five things – being misled or deviating from Siraatul Mustqeem, harm or illness befalling him, Deeni or worldly harm befalling his children, physical or spiritual harm to his wife, loss of income or property.  

After listening to his fears, Nabi (Sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) taught him the following Dua:

(to be read 3 times morning and evening)

Bismillaahi ala Deenie wa nafsie wa waladie wa ahlie wa maalie.

Translation: May the Blessings of Allah be on my religion, myself, 
my offspring, my family and my wealth.
