Anas bin Malik رضي الله عنه narrated that the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و سلم said “Assist your brother whether he be the oppressor or the oppressed.” So, the Sahabah رضي الله عنهم said, “We can understand the oppressed person, but how do we assist the oppressor?” The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و سلم said, “You prevent him from committing injustice and in that way you will assist him.” [Sahih al Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Musnad Imam Ahmad]

Have you not read the verse of the Qur’an?

بسم الله الرحمان الرحيم

 الحمد الله

 

 

‘Aishah رضي الله عنها narrates, “A man came to the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و سلم and said, ‘O’ Messenger of Allah, I have servants who lie to me, who betray me, who are dishonest to me and who verbally abuse me so in turn I punish them and I also verbally abuse them so what is my connection in relationship with them?’ Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم replied, ‘On the Day of Reckoning, their abuse, their disobedience, their betrayal and their lies shall all be measured and your punishment and you abuse in turn will also be measured. If their abuse, their lying, their betrayal and their dishonesty all exceeds your punishment, then you will be in the clear and you will have a right over them. But if your punishment exceeds their crime, then they will have a right over you.’” ‘Aishah رضي الله عنها continues, “The man restricted himself in a corner and began screaming and wailing. Then the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و سلم said to him, ‘Have you not read the verse of the Qur’an, ‘On the Day of Reckoning, We shall establish the scales of justice and then no soul shall suffer any injustice in the least and even if it be something to the measure of a mustard seed, We shall produce it and We are sufficient as those who We reckon.’ So the man said, ‘O’ Messenger of Allah, how can I live with them? To me, the best choice is to part with their company and I make you a witness that I have freed all of them.’”

[Sunan at-Tirmidhi and Musnad Imam Ahmad]

‘AbduLlah ibn ‘Amr al ‘Aas رضي الله عنه narrated, “The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و سلم said, ‘On the Day of Reckoning, those who are just will be upon the pulpits of noor, on the Right hand side of ar-Rahman and both the Hands of ar-Rahman are Right. Those who are just in their judgement, those who are just in their families and those who are just for any responsibility they may assume.’”

“…My servant keeps drawing nearer to Me with

voluntary deeds until I Love him.”

بسم الله الرحمان الرحيم

الحمد الله

عليكم ورحمت الله و بركاته السلام

“Whoever prays twelve rak’ahs of prayer voluntarily in a day and night, Allah will build him a house in Paradise.”

[‘Sahih Muslim’; 1/503]


“The first thing which the people will be called to account for of their actions on the Day of Judgment is their prayer. If it is in a good state, he is successful and has passed. If it is in a bad state, he has failed and has lost. Allah will then Say: ‘See if there are some optional prayers that can compensate for the deficiency in his obligatory prayer!’ Then, all the actions will be dealt with similarly.”

[‘Sahih at-Tirmidhi’; 1/130]


“Allah Says: “My servant approaches Me with nothing more beloved to Me than what I have made obligatory upon him, and My servant keeps drawing nearer to Me with voluntary deeds until I Love him. And when I love him, I am his hearing with which he hears, his sight with which he sees, his hand with which he seizes, and his foot with which he walks. If he asks Me, I will surely give to him, and if he seeks refuge in Me, I will surely protect him.””

[‘Fath al-Bari’; # 6502]


1 – Fajr

“Two rak’ahs before the Fajr prayer is better than the World and all that is in it.”

[‘Sahih Muslim’; 1/501]

‘A’ishah said: “The Prophet was never more obliged to an optional deed than the two rak’ahs before Fajr.”

[‘Sahih al-Bukhari’; 1/393]

2 – Dhuhr

“Whoever is constant and regular in praying four rak’ahs before Dhuhr and four afterwards, then the fire of Hell will not touch him.”

[‘Sahih al-Jami”; # 6195]


3 – ‘Asr

“May Allah have Mercy on the one who prays four rak’ahs before ‘Asr.”

[‘Sahih al-Jami”; # 3493]

4 – Maghrib

{“And those who spend the night before their Lord, prostrate and standing.”} [al-Furqan; 64]

al-Kalbi said: “Whoever prays two rak’ahs after the Maghrib prayer and four after the ‘Isha‘ prayer will be considered like those mentioned in this verse.”

[‘Tafsir al-Qurtubi’]


5 – ‘Isha’

{“And those who spend the night before their Lord, prostrate and standing.”} [al-Furqan; 64]

Ibn ‘Abbas said: “Whoever prays two rak’ahs or more after the ‘Isha’ prayer will be considered like those mentioned in this verse.”

[‘Tafsir al-Qurtubi’]


6 – Duha

“Whoever prays four rak’ahs of Duha prayer, and before the first, he prays four (for a total of eight), a house is built for him in Paradise.”

[‘Sahih al-Jami”; # 6340]


“Allah Said: “O Children of Adam! Pray to me four rak’ahs at the beginning of the day, and I will suffice you until the end of it.”

[‘Sahih al-Jami”; # 1913]


“Nobody is constant in performing the Duha except the one who is awwab, and it is the prayer of the awwabbin (the ones who return to the straight path, or return to their home in Paradise).”

[‘Sahih al-Jami”; # 7628]


“Whoever makes ablution and proceeds to the mosque for the Duha prayer, then this is easier for him than participating in a battle, has greater spoils, and is quicker in return.”

[‘Sahih at-Targhib wat-Tarhib’; 1/349]


7 – Witr

“O people of the Qur’an! Perform your Witr, for surely Allah Loves the Witr.”

[‘Sahih al-Jami”; # 7860]


8 – Prayer after ablution

“Whoever makes ablution – and makes it well – then prays two rak’ahs, not letting his mind wander in them, then Allah Forgives him all of his previous sins.”

[‘Silsilat al-Ahadith as-Sahihah’; # 6041]


“Whoever makes ablution – and makes it well – then prays two rak’ahs concentrating on them intensely with his heart and his face, then Paradise is obligatory for him.”

[‘Silsilat al-Ahadith as-Sahihah’; # 6062]
