Hazrat Abu Hurairah Radi allahu anhu se rivayat hai ki Rasoollallah Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam ne farmaya Bewaon aur miskeenon ke kaam aaney wala Allah ke raastey mein Jihad karney waley ke barabar hai ya Raat bhar Ibadat aur din bhar Roza rakhney waley ke barabar hai
Sahih Bukhari, 5353
حضرت ابوہریرہ رضی اللہ عنہ نے بیان کیا کہ نبی کریم صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا ، بیواؤں اور مسکینوں کے کام آنے والا اللہ کے راستے میں جہاد کرنے والے کے برابر ہے ، یا رات بھر عبادت اور دن کو روزے رکھنے والے کے برابر ہے ۔
Narrated Abu Huraira Radi Allahu Anhu: The Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam said, “The one who looks after a widow or a poor person is like a Mujahid (warrior) who fights for Allah’s Cause, or like him who performs prayers all the night and fasts all the day.”
Sahih Bukhari, Vol 7, Book 64, No. 265
Sujudush Shukr is like a treasure in this world and al ākhira. This information is worth gold, the benefits of doing Sajdatul Shukr. Most of us miss these benefits and we don’t know how much it’s worth. When we do Sajdatul Shukr (prostration of Appreciation), Allah opens the hijaab between us and the Angels . He says to the Angels, look at my slave, he did his fardh and obeyed My teachings and he did Sujuud to thank Me for what I’ve blessed him with. Oh My Angels what should he get? The Angels will reply, Ya Rabana give him Your mercy. Then Allah will ask again, and what else? The Angels will reply, Ya Rabbana give him Your heaven. Then Allah will ask again, and what else? The Angels will reply, Ya Rabana make his worries end. Then Allah Taala will ask what else? Everytime Allah asks n what else, the Angels will reply, something good. Lastly the Angels will reply, Ya Rabana we have no knowledge. Then Allah will say, ‘ I’ll thank him the way he thanked Me, I’ll give him My favour and show him My mercy’.
What harm do we get if we do Sajdatul Shukr everyday? It’s just a sajda and not a salaat.
whenever you r blessed with any good or any harm being removed, You can do it with or without wudu’; facing alqibla or not. But it’s best with wudu’ and facing the alqibla. During Sajdatul Shukr say what you say in the prostration during salat. Do not let this chance get away from you. Pls share with all your contacts; everytime they do this sujda you’ll get reward (ajr). Even after you’ve died it’ll be sadaqatul jariya. O Allah, make it sadaqatul jariya for me, my parents, my family, all those who’ll share it and all Muslims. Ameen.
When Umar bin al-Khattab (رضي الله عنه) was walking in the market, he passed by a man who was supplicating,
“O Allah, make us of Your ‘few’ servants! O Allah make us of Your ‘few’ servants!”
So ‘Umar said to him, “Where did you get this du`a’ (supplication) from?”And the man said, “Allah in His Book says
‘And few of My servants are grateful.’ (Qur’an 34:13)”
So ‘Umar wept and admonished himself, “The people are more knowledgeable than you, O Umar! O Allah make us of Your ‘few’ servants.”
Sometimes when you advise someone to leave a sin, they respond with “But most people do it, it’s not just me!”
But if you look for the words “most people” in the Qur’an, you will find that most people –
“do not know” (7:187)
– “do not give thanks” (2:243)
– “do not believe” (11:17).
And if you look for “most of them”, you will find that most of them are
– “defiantly disobedient” (5:59)
– “ignorant” (6:111)
– “turning away” (21:24)
– “do not reason” (29:23)
– “do not listen” (8:21).
So be of the “few”, whom Allah says about them:
– “And few of My servants are grateful.” (34:13)
– “But none had believed with him, except a few.” (11:40)
– “In the Gardens of Pleasure, A [large] company of the former peoples, And a few of the later peoples.” (56:12-14)
Ibn al-Qayyim (رحمه الله) said, “Go on the path of truth and do not feel lonely because there are few who take that path, and beware of the path of falsehood and do not be deceived by the greatness of the perishers.” [Found in Kitab al-Zuhd by Ahmad bin Hanbal (رحمه الله), and also in the Musannaf of Ibn Abi Shaybah.] –
