Salawat of the Awliya Digital ED

Alhmamdulillah a transliteration and arabic only wird has now been added to the book. A collection of Durūds on the Best of Allāhʼs Creation for acquiring the love of Rasulullāh ﷺ the removal of worries, calamities, fulfilling of needs and for barakah in ones life and sustenance Introduction This book of Salawāt / Durūd contains various selected Durūds from the blessed lips of Rasulullāh sallallāhu alayhi wasallam and the Awliyā Allāh, the saintly friends of Allāh. Durūd should be read for the pleasure of Allāh and as a means of love, veneration and gratitude to Rasulullāh sallallahu alayhi wasallam. However Durūd is such a devotion that if a duā is made together with it, Allāh readily accepts that dua. Thus it has been a practice of the Awliya of Allāh to seek the help of Allāh in times of distress by combining Durūd with their duās. Many of the Durūds in this book have been shown to these Awliyā through Ilhām (inspiration) or have been granted acceptance and approval in the court of Rasulullāh Sallallāhu alayhi wasallam and some Durūds have been taught by Rasulullāh Sallallāhu alayhi wasallam to these Awliyā for increasing their nisbat (spiritual connection) with him, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, or as a solution to various problems, difficulties and hardships they encountered in their lives. These pious servants of Allāh, after experiencing the barakah and benefits of these duruds began teaching them to their followers who also expereinced the barakah of these duruds in their lives. Regular recital of these Durūds results in the reciter attaining a special love and bond with Rasulullāh sallallāhu alayhi wasallam and is also a means of removing poverty, difficulties, hardships, sicknesses, problems, worries and grief. To attain the full blessings of the Salawāt/DurŪds mentioned in this book they should be read as daily wird/wazīfa, either in the morning or the evening. In times of severe difficulty it should be read both morning and evening or after every Fardh Salah with the intention of relief from ones difficulty. Thereafter dua should be made. And the best intention is to attain the true love and following of Sayyidinā Rasulullāh ﷺ . It is advisable to recite this collection daily together with the 40 Hadith Durūd collection of Hadhrat Shaykh al-Hadith Moulānā Muhammad Zakariyyā Rahimahullāh.

Presence in Salah- Shaykh Ibn Ataillah Rahimahullah

“The likeness of one who prays, without presence of heart, is like someone sending a King, a gift of one hundred empty boxes; thus deserving his punishment. Whoever prays with presence of heart is like someone giving the king a precious sapphire; worth a thousand gold coins. The king will always remember him because of it.”

Shaykh Ibn Ataillah Rahimahullah

SUNNAH REMEDIES – Olive Oil

SUNNAH REMEDIES – Olive Oil

At-Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah narrated that Abu Hurairah (radiaAllahu anhu) related from the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) that he said:

“Eat the Olive Oil and use it as an ointment, because it is produced from a blessed tree.”

Al-Bayhaqi and Ibn Majah also narrated that Abdullah bin Umar (radiaAllahu anhu) said that the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“Eat Oil and use it as an ointment because it is produced from a blessed tree (olive tree).”

Olive oil is hot and wet in the first degree. Also, the quality of the oil depends on the tree that produces it. For instance, the best type of olive oil is that squeezed from ripe olives, while oil from unripe olives is cold and dry. Red olives produce oil that is between these while black olives produce hot and wet oil.

Olive oil helps against poisons, works as a laxative and rids the body of worms. Old olive oil leans more towards being hot and decomposing. When the oil is blended with water, it becomes less hot and milder and thus more beneficial.

All kinds of olive oil soften the skin and slow the aging process. The salty water blended with oil helps burned skin against blistering. It also strengthens the gingiva (gums), while olive leaves help against erysipelas (skin infections), sores, septic ulcers and urticaria (hives). There are many other benefits for olive oil.

Rasulullah’s advise to Abdullah bin Abbas

Abul Abbas ‘Abdullah bin Abbas Radiallahu Anhu reported that Rasululullah Sallallahu alayhi wasallam told him:

O young man,I shall teach you some words[of advice].Be mindful of Allah,and you will find Him in front of you.If you(have need to) ask,ask of Allah, and if you seek help,seek help from Allah.Know that even if the nation(or the whole community) were to gather together to benefit you with something,they would not benefit you with anything except that which Allah has already recorded for you, and that if they gather together to harm you with something, they would not be able to harm you with anything except that which Allah has already recorded against you.The pens have lifted and the pages have dried. [Al-Tirmidhi]

Qasida Munajat Sayyidina Abu Bakr as Siddique Radiallahu Anhu

Qasida-Munajat-al-Siddiqi

This is a heartfelt entreaty seeking Divine Pardon. It has found a lofty place in many quarters of the Islamic world. The author of this work has not been decisively established. There are three variations to the origin and position of this ode:

  • The Ottoman saint, Ahmad Ziya’uddin Gumushanevi, has attributed this work to the bosom friend of the Messenger of Allah (upon him be blessings and peace), Sayyidina Abu Bakr ‘Abdullah al-Siddiq (may Allah be pleased with him).
  • The author of Al-Fuyudat Al-Rabbaniyya, Isma’il Muhammad Sa’id al-Qadiri, has catalogued this as “Al-Qasida Al-Ghawthiyya” and attributed it toSayyidina-sh Shaikh Muhyiddin ‘Abdul Qadir al-Jilani (may Allah sanctify his secret).
  • Shaykh Ahmad Rida Khan al-Qadiri of Bareilly, responded to a question about this work in the following terms: “The attribution [to Abu Bakr al-Siddiqi] is incorrect. Someone with a poetic name of Siddiqi and ignorant of Arabic grammar has composed this.”

Despite the outward issues with this composition, there is no denying that an innatebaraka exists therein. This has made it an integral part of the daily prescribed litany of many saints and savants. It is certainly an entreaty for the last days of Ramadan.

Success is from Allah.

Precious-Precious-Rasool-Allah

الغالي الغالي رسول الله

Precious Precious Rasulullah

يا رب صل على النبي ………..خير الأنام وآله

O Rabb, send blessings upon the Prophet
The best of mankind and upon his Family
بجماله بجلاله ……….. بكماله بمقاله

In his beauty and his majesty
In his perfection and his speech
خير الأنام محمد ………. الفضل من أفضاله

Muhammad, the best of mankind
All bounty is from his bounties
قد قال ربى رحمة ……….. للخلق في إرساله

My Rabb said ‘Out of Mercy
Was he sent for the creation’

دار النعيم مقامه ………. والخلد في إقباله

The place of bliss is his abode
And the creation are all seeking him
فمتى اقبل تربة ………. كانت مقر نعاله

So when will I kiss the earth?
Which was the dwelling where his sandals stepped

ومتى أشاهد روضة ………. مملوءة بنواله

And when will I be able to witness the Rawdah?
Which is filled with his gifts
واشم من طيب الحبيب ………. أقيل تحت ظلاله

And smell the perfume of the Beloved
And rest under his shade?

ويدور كأس شرابه ……… من عذب ماء قلاله

The cup of his drink is being shared
From the sweet water of his pitcher
يا حبذا لو زارني ……… حتى بطيف خياله

How sweet! If only he was to visit me
Even if it is just a vision from his thoughts

الود منه لقد بدا ……… وكذاك من أشباله

Love has truly appeared from him
As it has from his children

و أحبه و أوده ……….. حقا لطيب خصاله

I love him and am devoted to him
Truly, for the purity of his characteristics

ما جاء مثل محمد ……… ما جاء مثل مثاله

The like of Muhammad has never been seen
Neither the like of his like has ever been
في الصخر اثر مشيه …….. ما غاص فوق رماله

On solid rock his feet left prints
Yet upon sand they did not sink

وأشار للبدر انقسم ………. فانشق مثل هلاله

He indicated to the moon to split
And so it split like two crescents
والجذع أنَّ تشوقا ……… لكلامه ومقاله

The tree trunk cried in yearning
For his words and speech

يحمى الكنانة سيدا ……… كالليث في أشباله

The Sayed protects the Land of Kinana—Egypt
Like a lion among its cubs
الله يحفظ زائرا ……… قد سار بين جباله

Allah protects a visitor
Who has begun to walk between his mountains

يمشى إليه مهرولا ……… ليفوز يوم نواله

He walks to him in haste
To be successful on the Day of his Giving
الله يحفظ قلبه ………. بالنور في أحواله

Allah protects his heart
With the light in all his states
ويظل في بركاته ……… ويزيد في أمواله

And he remains continuously in his blessings
And he increases him in wealth

ثم الصلاة مع السلام ………. على النبي وآله
May blessings along with peace
Be upon the Prophet and his Family
ما الجعفري بمدحه ………. يشدو بصدق مقاله

For al-Jafari does not with his praise
Claim to sing the reality of the Prophet’’s state

The Topi – Headgear in Islam

THE. TOPEE (islamic headgear)

It is becoming common amongst the youth and the neo salafies [we are amazed,are the shy of the sunnah yet proud of the suit of the fussaq and fujjar who generaly wear such?] to discard the valuble sunnah of the topee ie headgear which is more valuble than the entire world and its contents hence the need for a post to establish its authenticity and the fact that it was a practice of the nabi and his companions

TOPEE (HEADGEAR)

1. Hazrat Ibn Umar (Radiallahu Anhu) narrates that Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to wear a white topee (Tabrani)

2. It is reported from Ibn Umar (Radiallahu Anhu) that Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) wore a white topee. (Mu’jamul Kabeer of Tabraani)

3. It is reported from Ibn Umar (Radiallahu Anhu) that Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) wore a white topee. (this Hadeeth is weak – Tazkiratul Maudu’aat pg. 155)

4. Abu Sheikh reports from Ibn Abbas (Radiallahu Anhu) that Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) had three topees in his possesion (Bazlul Majhood vol.6 pg. 52)

5. In “Mukhtasar”, a description of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)’s three topees is found – one was such that on the inside it had a lining sewn with it. The second was made of the Hibarah Fabric and the third was the topee that covered the ears, which was generally worn on journeys and would sometimes be in front at Salah times.

6. Hazrat Ayesha (Radiallahu Anha) narrates that Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) would wear a white topi which lay flat and compressed to his head. (Ibn ‘Asaakir has reported this; however the Sanad (chain of narrators) is weak. (Faizul Qadeer vol. 5 pg. 246)

7. Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasllam) has said that a Muhrim (person in Ihraam) must not wear a Kurta, turban, pants and a “Burnus” (specific type of Topee) (i.e. he will not wear these types of clothing). (Bukhaari Shareef vol.1 pg. 209, vol.2 pg. 864). It is thus learnt that people were in the habit of wearing the topee in the time of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam).

8. The narration of Ibn Abbas (Radiallahu Anhu) has already been mentioned (refer to no. 29), the subject matter of which was that Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) would wear a topee under his turban and would sometimes wear only a topee (Ibn Asaakir etc. narrated this Hadith. The Sanad is weak).

9. Hazrat Ayesha (Radiallahu Anha) narrates that Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) would wear a topee which covered his ears while on a journey and while at home he would wear a thin (i.e. Syrian style) topee. Abu Shaikh has narrated this Hadith. Iraaqi (R.A.) has written that of the Ahaadith dealing with the topee, this hadith is the most authentic and reliable. (Faizul Qadeer vol. 5 pg. 246). This Hadith has already passed under hadith no. 29. 1O.Abu Kabsha Anmaan narrates that the Topee of the Sahaaba (Radiallahu Anhum) were spread out and flat. (Tirmizi – this Hadith is weak pg. 308) Hazrat Gangohi (R.A) explains the meaning of this narration that “their complete heads were covered. The topees would not stand up but were flat and compressed”. (Al-kaukabud Durrie vol.2 pg. 452)

TOPEE OF SAHABAH AND TABIEEN

11. Zaid Ibn Jubair says that he saw Abdullah Ibn Zubair (Radiallahu Anhu) wearing a topee. (In the narration, the Arabic word “Burtula” appears which refers to a specific type of topee). Hishaam Bin Urwa also says that he saw Ibn Zubair (Radiallahu Anhu) wearing a topee of thin material.

12. Eesa Ibn Tahmaan says that he saw Anas lbn Malik (Radiallahu Anhu) wearing a topee. In the narration, the word “Burnus” comes which means a long hat. (In Bukhari too, the wearing of a topee by Anas (Radiallahu Anhu) is mentioned. vol. 2 pg. 863).

13. The father of Ash’as reports that he saw Abu Musa Ash’ari (Radiallahu Anhu) coming out of the toilet. Abu Musa had on a Topee.

14. Ismaaeel says that he saw Shuraih wearing a Topee. 15. Abu Shihaab says. that he saw Sa’eed Ibn Jubair (Radiallahu Anhu) wearing a Topee. (both Shihaab and Ibn Jubair are Tabi’ees). Ali Ibn Husain (i.e. Hazrat Zainul Aabideen), Ibrahim Nakh’ee and Dhahaak were all seen wearing Topees. (All these narrations are reported together with their Sanad in Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaiba vol.8 pg. 212/213/242) Hazrat Ali (Radiallahu Anhu) was seen wearing a white Egyptian Topee. (Tabaqaat Ibn Sa’ad {Urdu} vol. 3 pg. 187) The mention of the Topee of Abu lshaq Sabee Tabi’ee is found in Bukhari. (vol.1 pg.159) . Ibn Ul Arabi writes, “The topee is amongst the clothing of the Ambiyaa and Pious ones. It protects the head and keeps the turban in place, which is Sunnah. The topee should sit on the head and should not be standing like a dome. Should anyone feel the necessity of making holes in the topee in order to keep the head cool and to let out steam, then this would be regarded as a means of treatment (i.e. this should not be done without necessity). (Faizul Qadeer vol.5 pg. 247)

Dua for protection against Jinn

When Hadhrat Khaalid bin Waleed (Radialllahu Anhu) once complained to Rasulullaah sallallahu alayhi wasallam about being pestered by a Jinn, Rasulullaah sallallahu alayhi wasallam advised him to recite the following Du’aa:

أَعُوذُ بِكَلِمَاتِ اللهِ التَّامَّاتِ مِن شَرِّ لَا يُجَاوِزُهُنَّ بِرٌّ وَّلَا فَاجِرٌ مِّنْ شَرِّ مَا ذَرَأَ فِي الْأَرْضِ، وَمِنْ شَرِّ مَا يُخْرِجُ مِنْهَا ، وَمِنْ شَرِّ مَا يَعْرُجُ فِي السَّمَاءِ، وَمَا يَنْزِلُ مِنْهَا، وَمِنْ شَرِّ كُلِّ طَارِقٌ إِلَّا طَارِقًا يَّطْرُقُ بِخَيْرِ يَا رَحْمٰنُ

A’oodhu bi kalimaatillaahit taammaati min sharri laa yujaawizu hunna birrun wa laa faajirun min sharri ma dhara-a fil ardhi wa min sharri maa yukhriju minhaa wa min sharri maa y’aruju fis samaa-i wa maa yanzilu minhaa wa min sharri kulli taariqin illaa taariqan yatruqu bikhayri Yaa Rhamaan

Hadhrat Khaalid (Radialllahu Anhu) reports that it then all came to an end after he had recited the Du’aa.
