The Importance of the Supplications of the Righteous


From Anas, “When he صلى الله عليه وسلم would strive in supplicating for someone he would say:

جَعَلَ اللهُ عَلَيْكُمْ صَلَاةَ قَوْمٍ أَبْرَار، يَقُوْمُوْنَ الْلَّيْلَ وَيَصُوْمُوْنَ الْنَّهَارَ، لَيْسُوْا بِأَثَمَةٍ وَلَا فُجَّارٍ

Jaʿalallāhu ʿalaikum ṣalāta qowmin abrār, yaqūmūnal-laila wa yaṣūmūna-nahāra laisū bi athamatin wa lā fujjār

‘May Allaah cause to be over you the prayers of a righteous people who stand [in prayer] at night and fast during the day, and who are neither sinners nor wicked evil-doers.’”

Silsilah | 1810 | Saheeh

Sitting Closely in the Gatherings of Knowledge and not Being Distant


Translated by Ahmed Abu Turaab

Shaikh al-Albaani said, “It is obligatory upon the students of knowledge to come close in the circles [of knowledge] and not to be distant.  For this outward coming together affects [a person] inwardly.  And the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم encouraged this in many hadiths.  For he صلى الله عليه وسلم would order the people to come together and sit closely in the gatherings of knowledge, because this bodily closeness has an affect in bringing the hearts together and [bringing about] mutual love and harmony, which must be realised in the heart of every Muslim.”
