Eid ul Adha

Narrated Ibn Abbas: The Prophet(SAW) said, “No good deeds done on other days are superior to those done on these (first ten days of Dhul Hijja).” Then some companions of the Prophet(SAW) said, “Not even Jihad?” He replied, “Not even Jihad, except that of a man who does it by putting himself and his property in danger (for Allah’s sake) and does not return with any of those things.” (Sahih Bukhari)

Bad deeds

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle (SAW) said, “There are three persons whom Allah will not look at on the Day of Resurrection, nor will he purify them and theirs shall be a severe punishment. They are:

1. A man possessed superfluous water, on a way and he withheld it from travelers.

2. A man who gave a pledge of allegiance to a ruler and he gave it only for worldly benefits. If the ruler gives him something he gets satisfied, and if the ruler withholds something from him, he gets dissatisfied.

3. And man displayed his goods for sale after the ‘Asr prayer and he said, ‘By Allah, except Whom None has the right to be worshipped, I have been given so much for my goods,’ and somebody believes him (and buys them).”

The Prophet then recited: “Verily! Those who purchase a little gain at the cost of Allah’s Covenant and their oaths.” (3.77) (Sahih Bukhari)

Qasr / Short prayer

Narrated Ibn Abbas: The Prophet (PBUH) once stayed for nineteen days and prayed shortened prayers. So when we traveled (and stayed) for nineteen days, we used to shorten the prayer but if we travelled (and stayed) for a longer period we used to offer the full prayer. (Sahih Bukhari/Volume 2, Book 20, Number 186)

Prayer is a must

How can we feel comfortable doing anything else ignoring prayer?!

How can we ignore the 5 daily prayers when we know the below,

– It is the first matter that the slave will be brought to account for on the Day of Judgment.

– Missing prayer is a major sin!
– It was made obligatory upon all the prophets and for all peoples.
– The obligatory status of prayer was declared during the
majestic occasion of prophet’s PBUH ascension to heaven.
– Prophet (peace be upon him) stated the most virtuous deed is prayer three consecutive times when a man asked and then on the fourth occasion he stated, “Jihad in the way of Allah.”
– “Verily, the prayer keeps one from the great sins and evil deeds” (al-Ankaboot 45)”
– The five daily prayers and the Friday Prayer until the Friday prayer are expiation for what is between them.” (Recorded by Muslim)
– The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “The most burdensome of prayers for the hypocrites are ‘Isha’ and Fajr. If only they knew what (reward) there is in them, they would come to them even if they had to crawl. I was thinking of ordering that the call to prayer be given, then I would tell a man to lead the people in prayer, then I would set out with some men carrying bundles of wood and go to people who do not attend the prayer, and burn their houses down with them inside.”
– Abu Dawood (561), al-Tirmidhi (223) and Ibn Maajah (781) narrated from Buraydah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Give glad tidings to those who walk to the mosques in the dark, of perfect light on the Day of Resurrection.”
– “Whoever prays ‘Isha’ in congregation, it is as if he spent half the night in prayer, and whoever prays Subh (Fajr) in congregation, it is as if he spent the entire night in prayer.” Muslim (656)
– al-Bukhaari (555) and Muslim (632) narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Angels come to you in succession by night and by day, and they meet at Fajr prayer and at ‘Asr prayer, then those who stayed among you ascend and He (Allah) asks them, although He knows best, ‘How did you leave My slaves?’ They say: ‘We left them when they were praying and we came to them when they were praying.’
