65Beautiful hadith on Fasting in Muharram
- Nov 30, 2012
Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatu Dear Brothers & Sisters in Islam
While many people are aware of the great rewards of fasting on the day of Ashurah, with an accompanying day as per the sunnah of our Beloved Nabi Muhammad (SAW), not everyone is aware that the entire month holds great blessings for the person who fasts . . .
The beautiful Hadith below shows us the high value of fasting in this month
It also highlights the high value given to Tahajjud salaah . . .
Recently, a good friend of mine made a remark that got me thinking. . . It was something along the lines of: "If there's something you want and you haven't gotten up for Tahajjud, to ask Allah (SWA) for it, you didn't really want it enough"...
That really got me thinking.. How very true!!! For it is in the last third of the night that Allah (SWA) descends to the lowest heavens asking if any of His slaves wants to ask anything of Him, so that He may grant it! And if Allah (SWA) is willing to grant our requests, surely we can make that effort And if we're not willing to sacrifice some of our sleep for what we long for, then surely in our heart of hearts, it can't be that important to us, right?!?
May Allah (SWA) help us all to strive to attain the blessings of this month, as well as Allah (SWA)'s nearness, mercy and forgiveness, Insha-Allah, Ameen!
On a slightly different note . . . For a while now I've been toying with the idea of keeping all my Islamic material (cards and messages) in one central place, separate from the rest of my scrapbooking. I'd even booked the blog address http://786inspirez.blogspot.com/ at the time, but it was only this morning that I FINALLY did my first post In future, I'll be posting my scrapped Inspirez cards there (instead of on http://zabrascrap.blogspot.com) . . . I'd love for you to share my new blog address with your friends too J
Wishing you, your family, friends and loved ones a Jumuah full of blessings, love success and happiness. . . Jumuah Mubarak!!
Fi amaanillah - I leave you in the protection of Allah (S.W.A.)
Wasalaamu Alaykum Wa Raghmatullaahi Wa Barakaatu

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: "When a person dies, his/her deeds come to an end except for three things:
1. Sadaqah Jariyah (ceaseless charity) - any good deed done from which people continue to benefit despite the demise of the person who originated it. e.g., the establishment of a madrassa or masjid from which people are rightly guided, or the sponsoring of a Hafith student;
2. Knowledge which is beneficial - knowledge imparted verbally or by any other means through which people become better Muslims
3. A virtuous descendant who prays for him (the deceased)." [Sahih Muslim]
