Tag Archive: Sahih al-Bukhari



If you can say one thing that’s sure to happen on Friday, then the majority of the audience arriving after the Khutbah has a pretty good shot of being #1. Not only do they miss a part of (or in the some cases the entire) Khutbah, but a chance to pile up some Ajr as well. Talk about economic loss!

Narrated by Abu Huraira (Sahih Al-Bukhari 2.51)

The Prophet said, “When it is a Friday, the angels stand at the gate
of the mosque and keep on writing the names of the persons coming to
the mosque in succession according to their arrivals. The example of
the one who enters the mosque in the earliest hour is that of one
offering a camel (in sacrifice). The one coming next is like one
offering a cow and then a ram and then a chicken and then an egg
respectively. When the Imam comes out (for Jumua prayer) they (i.e.
angels) fold their papers and listen to the Khutba.”

So that makes it, at the least, 52 eggs, per year. And that too good eggs! So what are you waiting for?

The Sweet Sunnah


بســــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــم الله الرحمن الرحــيــم

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله وبركاته

It’s time for yet another simple and (in this case sweet) Sunnah to be highlighted here at the Shelter. This time, we begin with a hadith:
Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: A man came to Allah’s Apostle and said, “I saw in a dream, a cloud having shade. Butter and honey were dropping from it and I saw the people gathering it in their hands, some gathering much and some a little. And behold, there was a rope extending from the earth to the sky, and I saw that you (the Prophet) held it and went up, and then another man held it and went up and (after that) another (third) held it and went up, and then after another (fourth) man held it, but it broke and then got connected again.” Abu Bakr said, “O Allah’s Apostle! Let my father be sacrificed for you! Allow me to interpret this dream.” The Prophet said to him, “Interpret it.” Abu Bakr said, “The cloud with shade symbolizes Islam, and the butter and honeydropping from it, symbolizes the Quran, its sweetness dropping and some people learning much of the Qur’an and some a little. The rope which is extended from the sky to the earth is the Truth which you (the Prophet) are following. You follow it and Allah will raise you high with it, and then another man will follow it and will rise up with it and another person will follow it and then another man will follow it but it will break and then it will be connected for him and he will rise up with it. O Allah’s Apostle! Let my father be sacrificed for you! Am I right or wrong?” The Prophet replied, “You are right in some of it and wrong in some.” Abu Bakr said, “O Allah’s Prophet! By Allah, you must tell me in what I was wrong.” The Prophet said, “Do not swear.”  Sahih Bukhari (Book #87, Hadith #170)

Have you heard this hadith before ?:
It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever comes (to the mosque) in the first hour, it is as if he sacrificed a camel. Whoever comes at the second hour, it is as if he sacrificed a cow. Whoever comes at the third hour, it is as if he sacrificed a horned ram. Whoever comes at the fourth hour, it is as if he sacrificed a chicken. Whoever comes at the fifth hour, it is as if he sacrificed an egg. Then when the imam comes out, the angels come in to listen to the reminder (khutbah).”
