Dua When It Rains

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Rasulullah Sallalaahu Alayhi wassalam said:

“Two will not be rejected: Dua when the Adhaan (call of prayer) is being called, and at the time of the rain.”

Dua For Rain

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Hadhrat ‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Umar (Radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported that Rasulullah (Sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“…[Whenever a nation] lessens weights and measures [i.e. they are deceitful in business transactions], they will be afflicted with famine, price hikes and an oppressive leader. 
When they refuse to pay Zakaat, they will be deprived of rain. Were it not for the animals, it will not rain [at all]…”

[Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 4 pg. 540. Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 4019]

Virtues of Qurbaani

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: "There is nothing dearer to Allah during the days of Qurbaani than the sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal shall come on the Day of Judgement with its horns, hair, and hooves (to be weighed). The sacrifice is accepted by Allah before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore sacrifice with an open and happy heart."

[Tirmidhi, Ibne Majah]

Zaid lbn Arqam (Radhiyallaahu ‘anhu) relates that the Sahabah (Radhiyallaahu ‘anhum) queried, “O Rasulullah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam): What is Qurbaani?”

He (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) replied: “It is the Sunnah of your father lbraheem (Alayhis Salaam).”

They again asked: “What benefit do we derive from it?”

He (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) answered: “A reward for every hair (of the sacrificed animal).”

“And (what reward is there for animals with) wool, O’ Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam)?” they asked.

“A reward”, he said, “for every fibre of the wool.”

[Ibne Majah]

“When a person slaughters a Qurbaani animal, he is forgiven at the fall of the first drop of blood, and verily, the animal shall be brought forward on the Day of Judgment 
with its blood, meat, limbs, etc. and shall be increased in weight seventy times, 
and then placed on the scale of deeds.”

[Kanzul Ummaal]

Six Bounties of a Martyr

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

“The Martyr (shahid) has six Blessings from Allah:

1.)   He is forgiven from the moment his blood is first shed and will be shown his place in Jannah (Paradise),
2.)    He will be spared the trial of the grave,
3.)    He will be secure on the Day of Qiyamah (Resurrection).
4.)    A crown of dignity will be placed on his head, one ruby of which is better than this world and all that is in it,
5.)    He will be married to seventy two (72) maidens of Jannah (hurs) and
6.)    He will be permitted to intercede for seventy of his relatives.”
