A NAS A WEEK - 2 DZUL QA'DAH 1439

Abdullah ibn Abdur Rahman reported: Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri, may Allah be pleased with him, said to him, “I see you love sheep and the desert. When you are among your sheep or in your desert and announced the call to prayer, then raise your voice with the call. Verily, the sound of the caller’s voice is not heard by any jinn, nor human, nor anything but that it will testify for him on the Day of Resurrection. I heard it from the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him.” [Source: Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 584. Grade: Sahih (authentic) according to Al-Bukhari}


عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ أَنَّ أَبَا سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيَّ قَالَ لَهُ  إِنِّي أَرَاكَ تُحِبُّ الْغَنَمَ وَالْبَادِيَةَ فَإِذَا كُنْتَ فِي غَنَمِكَ أَوْ بَادِيَتِكَ فَأَذَّنْتَ بِالصَّلَاةِ فَارْفَعْ صَوْتَكَ بِالنِّدَاءِ فَإِنَّهُ لَا يَسْمَعُ مَدَى صَوْتِ الْمُؤَذِّنِ جِنٌّ وَلَا إِنْسٌ وَلَا شَيْءٌ إِلَّا شَهِدَ لَهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ سَمِعْتُهُ مِنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ
[584 صحيح البخاري كتاب الأذان باب رفع الصوت بالنداء]

And let not those among you who are blessed with graces and wealth swear not to give (any sort of help) to their kinsmen, al-masakin (the poor), and those who left their homes for Allah's Cause. Let them pardon and forgive. Do you not love that Allah should forgive you? And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful [Translation of al-Nur, 24:22].

O believers! When you are asked to make room in your meetings, make room, Allah will make room for you in the Hereafter.
