Reward of 100 Martyrs

 The Revered and Renowned Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) has said,

من تمسك بسنتي عند فساد أمتي فله أجر مائة شهيد
Whoever firmly keeps to my Sunnah during the turmoil of my Ummah, will gain the reward of hundred martyrs. [Bayhaqi, Az-Zuhd al-Kabeer, Vol. 1, Page 118, Hadith 207]

Commenting on the above Hadith, Mufti Ahmad Yar Khan Naeemi (Alayhir Rahmah) has stated,

This is because the martyr gains success after he receives injuries from a sword only once but this bondman of Allah receives injuries from the tongues of people throughout his life, enduring their taunts. He bears every type of trouble for the sake of Allah and His Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam). The Jihad he performs is Jihad-e-Akbar which also includes, in the present age, growing a beard and refraining from interest etc. [Mira'at al-Manajih, Vol. 1, Page 174]

Pardon Your Brother, Hold His Hand And Go To Jannah

On the Day of Qiyamah, there would be such great abundance of mercies and favors, yet there will be some who will exercise the lack of it. It is recorded in the Hadith Sharif that a person will be ordered to go to Jannah. He will want to go but the one who will demand his right will stop him. This person will say, “Oh Allah! Grant me my rights from this brother of mine.” Allah will order all the good deeds of the person to be given to fulfill the complainant’s rights. Though all the good deeds will be given, but the rights will not be fulfilled.

However, the complainant will again demand his rights. Allah will order all the bad deeds of the complainant to be put on the accused for repayment. This will be done, but the rights will still not be fulfilled. The complainant will again demand his rights from his fellow Muslim brother whereupon Allah will say, “You were given all his good deeds and all your bad deeds were loaded upon him. Now what does he have for you to take?” The complainant will still persist, “Oh Allah! Grant me the balance of my rights.”

Almighty Allah will order the Angels to elaborately decorate a Palace and bring it forward from Jannah. Everyone will be astonished by it’s splendor and beauty. Allah will then say, “I am selling this Palace. Is there anyone to buy it?” The complainant will say, “Oh My Lord! Who has the wealth to buy this?” Allah will reply, “But you have the value!” He will say in amazement, “And what is that my Lord?” The command will be, “The price is to pardon your brother, hold his hand and go to Jannah.”

Panj Ganj e Qadiri

Huzur Ghauthul Azam Sheikh Abdul Qadir Al Jilani Radi Allahu Ta'aala Anhu has commanded his Mureedeen to recite the five treasures of the Qadiri Order after each Salah 100 times.By adding the Blessed name of Allah Almighty it completes its astounding benefits;


1.YAA AZEEZU YAA ALLAH (O All Mighty One, O Allah) after Fajr Salah


2.YAA KAREEMU YAA ALLAH (O Ever Generous One ,O Allah ) after Zuhr Salah


3.YAA JABBAARU YAA ALLAH ( O All Compelling One, O Allah ) after Asar Salah


4.YAA SATTAARU YAA ALLAH ( O Coverer of faults, O Allah ) after Maghrib Salah


5.YAA GHAFFAARU YAA ALLAH ( O All Forgiving One ,O Allah ) after Isha Salah.


Men of extreme spiritual wisdom know very well the secrets these particular supplications hold and what benefits the timing of these supplications hold.

My habit is one of summarizing so i will present a brief summary below;


1.YAA AZEEZU has been commanded to us to read after the Fajr prayer, this is due to the commencing of the day, one is preoccupied in fulfilling his worldly chores and will comes into contact with friends and enemies. Ya Azeez means O All Mighty, The Strong, Dignified and Powerful.

By reciting this attribute one will overcome all problems and will gain honour, dignity and respect especially when faced with difficult situations.

Without doubt one who remembers Allah Almighty is honorable and overcomes his adversaries .


2.YAA KAREEMU has been commanded to us to read after the Zuhr Salah. The rule is that flowers open their buds in the evening and spread their fragrance throughout the night and wither in the afternoon, therefore to recite this attribute at this time one has great hope of increasing ones sustenance.


3.YAA JABBAARU is to be read after the Asar Salah, it is from the Asmaae Jalaaliyyah (very powerful) and is an Isme Qehri. The time of Asar is when iblees calls a meeting on the surface of the ocean with great pride and show, where all the shayaateen gather to discuss ways in which to deceive and destroy mankind. Every Human has an individual shaytaan who attends this meeting and it is here where it is decided between the shaytaans that you will do this and i will do that.

Therefore this is the time to remember Allah Almighty with this name so that his wrath be on these shayateen and his protection be on us from their mischief.


4.YAA SATTAARU is to be read after Maghrib Salah once the sun has set, and darkness sets. This is the time when animals of prey, snakes, thieves, robbers and other harms are out and about. Calamities and catastrophes swirls around in the darkness, hence the meaning of reciting this supplication is to call on the Almighty to protect and safeguard us from all these dangers. Furthermore mankind tends to commit more sins during the night, which is why one should seek his protection at the beginning of the night so that we are veiled from this and we remain steadfast .


5. YAA GHAFAARU is to be read after Isha Salah, the sins committed by mankind during the day for which he is punishable, The Mercy of Allah Almighty prevents the Kiraaman Kaatibeen ( Honourable recorders ) from recording these until one goes to sleep without repenting and asking for forgiveness.

If one asks for forgiveness and repents for his sins before sleeping i.e by reciting Yaa Ghafaaru Allah Almighty will erase these from his book of bad deeds.

This is also one of the reasons we have been instructed to avoid worldly conversation after the Isha Prayer, and also to delay Isha for a part of the night is better so that one can sleep immediately after performing Isha Salah.


The benefits of repenting cannot be described .It is stated in a Hadith Shareef the one who repents after sinning it is like he has not committed that sin at all. ( Sunan ibn Maajah ,Sunan albayhaqi alkubra )

In another Hadith Shareef it is stated glad tidings be for one who finds plenty of istighfaar in his book of deeds ..(Ibn Maaajah ,baabul istighfaar )

In Surah Nooh it is stated [Nooh 71:10] “I therefore told them, ‘Seek forgiveness from your Lord; He is indeed Most Forgiving.

[Nooh 71:11] ‘He will send down abundant rain for you from the sky.’

[Nooh 71:12] ‘And will aid you with wealth and sons, and will create gardens for you and cause rivers to flow for you.’


Sayyiduna Huzaifa Radi Allahu Taala Anhu one presented his ailment of his tongue, in the Blessed court of the Most Beloved Salal laahu Alaihi Wa Aalihee Wasallam which wasnt being cured by medicines, to which The Most Beloved Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wasallam prescribed Istighfaar.(alzohd li'ibn Hambal)


Imaam Ul Aarifeen Sayyiduna Hassan Basri Radi Allahu Anhu was approached by a group of people at the time of famine to which the great Imam prescribed Repentance in abundance, one complained of difficulty with finances and daily life to which they again prescribed repentance with abundance. Another complained regarding his crops withering and drying and his orchards drying up to which he was also given the wazifa of repentance. After this the final questioner asked regarding him not having any children he also was given the wazifa of repenting and begging for forgiveness, due to istighfar all these people were successful in their needs.

Supplication of the Beloved Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam)

 The Beloved Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) supplicated:

اللهم أعز الإسلام بعمر بن الخطاب خاصة
“O Allah! Honour Islam, especially through Umar ibn Khattab”. [Sunan Ibn Majah, Page 71, Hadith 102]

After this supplication, the honour that was given to Islam and the Muslims, and the calamities that were repelled by Hadrat Sayyiduna Umar (Radi Allahu Anhu) are all well known. It is for this reason Hadrat Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Mas’ud (Radi Allahu Anhu) said,

ما زلنا أعزة منذ أسلم عمر
“We have always been revered and honoured since Umar accepted Islam.” [Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 1, Page 520]

He (Radi Allahu Anhu) has also said,

كان إسلام عمر فتحا , وهجرته نصرا , وإمارته رحمة , لقد رأيتنا وما نستطيع أن نصلي بالبيت , حتى أسلم عمر
“Umar’s coming into the folds of Islam was a victory for Islam.  His migration was a support and his caliphate was a blessing.  Indeed we saw that we couldn’t possibly pray our Salah in the House of Allah (Masjid al Haram) till Umar accepted Islam.” [Usdul Ghabah, Vol. 3, Page 648]

Furthermore,

ما صلينا ظاهرين حتي اسلم عمر , ظهر الإسلام ودعا إلى الله علانية
“We did not pray our Salah openly till Umar accepted Islam. When he accepted Islam, Islam gained strength and he called people towards Islam openly.” [Al-Riyadh an-Nadara, Vol. 2, Page 244]

Hadrat Suhayb bin Sinan (Radi Allahu Anhu) states,

لما أسلم عمر ، جلسنا حول البيت حلقًا ، وطفنا به ، وانتصفنا ممن غلظ علينا
“When Umar accepted Islam, we sat around the house of Allah (Ka’aba), performed the Tawaf and he did justice on our behalf upon those who oppressed us.” [Sifat al-Safwa, Vol. 1, Page 274]


Seventy-Six Thousand Virtues

It is narrated by Sayyiduna Ibn Mas’ud (Radi Allahu Anhu) that the Beloved Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) has stated, ‘‘One who recites

بـــســـم الــلــه الــرحـمــن الــرحـيــم

Allah will record 4,000 virtues in his book of deeds for very letter, forgive 4,000 of his sins and raise his rank by 4,000 degrees.’’ [Firdaus al-Akhbar, Vol. 4. Page 26, Hadith 5573]

SubhanAllah! The immense mercy of Allah Almighty is beyond imagination! بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم consists of 19 letters. Therefore, by reciting بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم once, one will receive 76 thousand virtues, his 76 thousand sins will be forgiven, and his rank will be raised by 76 thousand degrees.


Ruling Upon The Rafidhi (Shia)

The undeniable, definite, consensual ruling upon the Rafidhi Tabarrai is thus:

They are generally infidels and apostates. The meat slaughtered by them is dead carrion and marrying them is not only Haram, but in fact purely adultery. Allah forbid – if the male is a Rafidhi and the female is a Muslim (Sunni), then it is [invoking] the wrath of Allah. If, however, the male is a Sunni and the female is from among these malevolent, then still, the nikah is void; it is purely adultery; the children will be children of adultery; and they will not acquire the inheritance of the father, even if they are Sunni, as according to the Shariah, a child of adultery has no father. The woman also does not deserve any portion of the inheritance nor dowry as, for the adulterator, there is no dowry. Rafidhis cannot attain a portion of the inheritance from their close relatives, even if it may be their father or son, or mother or daughter. Let alone a Sunni or a Muslim, even a kafir, in fact, even their own Rafidhi fellows – they have no part in the inheritance. It is major sin and Haram to mingle with their laymen and scholars, and to meet and greet them, or to converse with them.

He who, after being aware of these accursed beliefs, deems them to be Muslims or bears doubts in their disbelief, then according to the consensus of all scholars, is himself a kafir, apostate; and for such a person the same rulings as mentioned for them above apply. It is obligatory upon Muslims to listen to this edict assiduously and become truthful and upright Muslims by acting upon it. From Allah is the ability, and Allah, the Glorious and Almighty knows best.

Merits of Sayyiduna Umar bin al-Khattab Radi Allahu Anhu

Merits of Sayyiduna Umar bin Al-Khattāb
(Martyred 1st Muharram 24AH)

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:
“O Ammar, Jibril عليه السلام came to me and I asked, “O Jibril narrate to me the virtues of Umar ibn Al-Khattab in the heavens.” He said, “O Muhammad, if I was to narrate the virtues of Umar from the time that Nūh عليه الصلاة والسلام remained with his people, nine hundred and fifty years, I would not exhaust the virtues of Umar.” [Musnad Abū Ya'lā]

“Whoever hates Umar hates me. Whoever loves Umar loves me.” [Al-Tabarāni Awsat]

“You shall not be afflicted with tribulation as long as Umar is amongst you.” [Al-Tabarānī Al-Awsat]

“If the Islam of Umar was an opening his migration was a victory and his leadership was mercy. I swear by Allah that we were unable to pray at the Ka’bah publically until Umar became Muslim.” [Al-Mustadrak, Hākim]

“Jibril عليه السلام came to me and said, Convey greetings to Umar and say to him his satisfaction is wisdom and his anger might.” [Al-Tabrani]

“I am from Umar and Umar is from me. The truth, after me, is with Umar wherever he is.” [Al-Tabrani]

"O Allah, strengthen Islam with Abu Jahl bin Hishām or Umar bin Khattāb." In the morning Umar went to the Holy Prophet, may Allah send greetings and salutations on him, and embraced Islam." [Sunan Tirmidhi]

"O Muhammad – may Allah send greetings and salutations on him – indeed, the residents of the heavens are rejoicing in Umar`s embracing Islam." [Sunan Ibn Majah]

If there were to be a prophet after me, indeed he would be Umar, son of Khattab. [Sunan Tirmidhi]

"Indeed, Allah has placed truth upon Umar`s tongue and heart." [Sunan Tirmidhi]

"Among the tribe of Israel before you were men who were spoken to without being Prophets. If there are any of them among my community, then it is Umar." [Sahih al-Bukhari]

"If the knowledge of Umar was put on one side of a scale, and the knowledge of the people on the other side of the scale, 'Umar's knowledge would weigh more." [Al-Mustadrak Hakim]

“Abu Bakr and Umar are the leaders of the mature inhabitants of Paradise, of the first and the last with the exception of the Prophets and the Messengers.” [Jami' al-Ahadith]

"Abdullah Bin Masud once said in love of Umar: "If I came to know of a dog that loved Umar, then indeed I would love that dog too." [Ahmad]

"After the Noble Messenger, the best of people is Abu Bakr, then the best of people is Umar." [Sunan Ibn Majah]
