Juma

Getting close to the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH)

Juma (Friday) is such a blessed day, we have so many opportunities (hacks) that Allah has shared with us.

Here’s one with MANY benefits (hacks).

Include as much blessings on the Prophet (SAW) as a part of our dua.

Doing this will at least:

  1. Get you closer to the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) on the day of Judgement
  2. Allah will take care of your concerns without even having to ask

Whoever sends blessings on the Prophet (PBUH), Allah will send blessings on him tenfold, and if Allah sends blessings on a person He will take care of his concerns and forgive him his sins.

Allah knows what we want, need and desire, Allah knows what is best for us, so why not use this hack as a way to put our complete trust in Allah and know that Allah will best fulfill our wants, needs, and desires.  We don’t have to make super long dua’s (although there is a blessing in that act), we can just send blessings on the Prophet (PBUH).

It was narrated (in part of the hadith) that Ubayy ibn Ka’b said:
I said: O Messenger of Allah, I send blessings upon you a great deal; how much of my prayer (dua) should be for you? He said: “Whatever you wish.”
I said: One quarter? He said: “Whatever you wish, and if you do more it is better for you.”
I said: Half? He said: “Whatever you wish, and if you do more it is better for you.”
I said: Two thirds? He said: “Whatever you wish, and if you do more it is better for you.”
I said: Should I make all my du’aa’ for you? He said: “Then your concerns will be taken care of and your sins will be forgiven.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi (2457); classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi.

Al-Tirmidhi (484) narrated from ‘Abd-Allah ibn Mas’ood that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
The closest of people to me on the Day of Resurrection will be those who send the most blessings on me.” [Classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb wa’l-Tarheeb.]

Protection from Dajjal

Reading Suah Kahf (Quran Chapter 18) (http://quran.com/18) on Fridays is one of the best deeds you can do, it offers protection from Dajjal.  There are many benefits to reciting Surah Kahf on Fridays as mentioned in a previous post.

If you’re seeking an easier way to get protection from Dajjal, you can memorize either the first ten verses or last ten verses of Surah Kahf.

Abu al-Darda (Allah be pleased with him) related that the Prophet of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) said, Whoever commits ten verses from the beginning Surat al-Kahf will be protected from the Dajjal. [Muslim, Abu Dawud, Nasa’i, and others; the wording is Muslim’s]

In a narration in Muslim and Abu Dawud it states, From the end of Surat al-Kahf.

Tirmidhi related it with the words, Whoever recites three verses from the beginning of al-Kahf will be protected from the tribulations of the Dajjal. [Mundhiri, al-Targhib wa’l Tarhib, #2172-2173]

Shining Light & Protection from Dajjal

Allah gave us a way to renew bliss in our lives every week, this can help decrease the symptoms of depression among other things, and puts a joy in your life you would otherwise miss.

Reading Suah Kahf (Quran Chapter 18) (http://quran.com/18) on Fridays is one of the best deeds you can do, it not only illuminates your life, but it offers  protection from the comming Dajjal (anti-christ), of which we have no idea when he will make his appearance.

The hadith related by Hakim and Bayhaqi, from Abu Sa`id (Allah be pleased with him), “Whoever recites Surat al-Kahf on Friday, light shall shine forth for him between the two Fridays”. [Ibn Hajar, Talkhis al-Habir]

Imam Shafi`i (Allah have mercy on him) said in his Umm,
It has reached us that whoever recites Surat al-Kahf on Fridays will be protected from the Dajjal. [Shafi`i, al-Umm, 1.239]
