Revive a Sunnah

In the name of Allah Revive a Sunnah: Du'a during Recitation
Hudhayfah (radi Allahu anhu) narrated that, ”Whenever the Prophet (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) read a verse about Allah’s punishment, he would seek refuge in Allah. And whenever He read a verse mentioning Allah’s mercy, he would ask Allah for His mercy. Hudhayfah said, “Whenever the Prophet (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) bowed he would say, “Subhana Rabbil Atheem” and when He prostrated He’d say,”Subhana Rabbil ‘Ala.”
Collected by Ahmed 6/ 24 , Abu Dawud 873, and others. Graded as being Hasan by Al-Albani
Shaykh Abdul Azeez bin Baz (rahimahullah) said:
It’s Sunnah for every Muslim who reads the Quran during prayer or elsewhere to ask Allah for His bounty at the verses of mercy. And when the Muslim reads a verse mentioning Allah’s punishment, he seeks refuge from the Hell-fire. Furthermore when a Muslim reads an ayah that deems Allah above something he declares it. He declares it by saying, “Subhanahu wa Ta’ala.”
It’s recomme…

In the name of Allah Revive a Sunnah: Lying down after Praying 2 Sunnah Rak'ah of Fajr
A’ishah (radi Allahu anha) narrated that the Messenger of Allaah (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) used to lie down on his right side, after offering two Rakah (sunnah) of the Fajr Salah." 
A’ishah (radi Allahu anha) narrated that the Messenger of Allaah (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) used to pray eleven raka'at at night and that was his night prayer and each of his prostrations lasted for a period enough for one of you to recite fifty verses before the Messenger of Allaah (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) raised his head. He also used to pray two Rakah (sunnah) before the (fard) Fajr prayer and then lie down on his right side till the muezzin came (to him to recite the iqaamah)."
Recorded in Saheeh al-Bukhari (21/257 and 16/108)
1. Imam An-Nawawi (rahimahullah) said in his commentary on Saheeh Muslim: "What is correct is that he lay down after the Sunnah of Fajr, because of the ha…

In the name of Allah Revive a Sunnah: Wudu for Every Salah
Anas (radi Allahu anhu) mentioned: The Messenger of Allah (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) was given a small vessel of water and he made wudu.” I said: “Did the Messenger of Allah (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) make wudu for every prayer?” He said “Yes” Then he was asked: “What about you?” He said: “We used to pray all the prayers as long as we did not break our wudu, and we used to pray all the prayers with one wudu.
Collected by Bukhari 214
1. Muhammad Adam Al-Ethiopee commented on this hadeeth in his explanation for Sunnan An-Nisa’i. He wrote:
- The hadeeth proves that it’s legislated to make wudu for every prayer, regardless if a person needs to or not.
- It’s permissible to pray the five daily prayers with only one wudu.
- Ibn Seereen narrated that Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthman used to make wudu for every prayer.” [Musanaf Ibn Abee Shaybah]
- Making wudu without invalidating it is a recommended act. Reason being, wudu is an ac…

In the name of Allah Revive a Sunnah: Protection from Harm
Abu Hurayrah (May Allaah be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: "Whenever you intend to leave your house you should pray two rak’ah right before you leave. These rak’ah will protect you from harm while outside. And when you come back home you should pray another two rak’ah. They will safeguard you from harm in your house.”
Al-Albani (may Allah have mercy on him) said in his Silsilah Saheehah 3/315: The isnad of this hadeeth is acceptable and the narrators are trustworthy men used by Bukhari. This hadeeth is mentioned in Al- Muntaqah (12/69/1), Al-Bazaar in his Musnad(81), Ad-Daylamee in his Musnad (1/1/108), and Abdul-Ghani in Akbar-As-Salaah(1/67 and 2/68)
Al-Allamah Muhammad Abdur-Rau’f Al-Manaawee said in Faydul Qadir: If a person intends to leave his home, it is recommended that he prays two rak’ah which are considered sunnah. These rak’ah should be short (i.e recite a small…

In the name of Allah Revive a Sunnah: Etiquette in Regards to Eid-ul-Adha Prayer
Performing ghusl before going out to the prayer
Ibn Qayyam said: “The Prophet (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) used to wear for the two Eids the most beautiful of his clothes. And he had a robe that he used to wear for the two Eids and Jum’ah. And ibn Umar (radi Allahu anhu) used to bathe for the two Eids.” [This narration is in Ibn Abi Shaibaah and Abdur Razzaq and is authentic]
An- Nawawi (rahimahullah) said that the Muslims were unanimously agreed that it is mustahabb (recommended) to do ghusl for Eid prayer.
Adorning oneself
It was narrated that Jaabir (radi Allahu anhu) said: The Prophet (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) had a cloak which he would wear on the two Eids and on Fridays. [Saheeh Ibn Khuzaymah, 1756]
Al-Bayhaqi narrated with a saheeh isnaad that Ibn ‘Umar used to wear his best clothes on Eid.
So a man should wear the best clothes that he has when going out for Eid.
Concerning women, they shou…

Revive a Sunnah

In the name of Allah Revive a Sunnah: Between the Jumu'ah and Sunnah Prayer
‘Umar ibn ‘Ata bin Abi Al-Khuwar narrated that Nafi bin Jubair sent him to As-Sa’ib bin Yazid, the maternal nephew of Namir, asking him regarding something Mu’awiyah had seen him do in the prayer. He said: “I prayed Jum’uah with Mu’awiyah in his enclosure and when he finished, I stood up in my place and prayed. When he went inside he sent for me and said” Do not repeat what you have just done. If you pray Jum’uah don’t join it with another prayer until you speak or exit the masjid. The Prophet (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) ordered us to separate between prayers. One prayer mustn’t be joined with another until you speak or exit. Collected by Muslim (883)
1. Ibn Mundhir [318 H] (rahimahullah) narrated an athar in his Awsat about this hadeeth from the acts of our Salaf. He wrote, “Ibn Umar saw a man pray two rakah after Jum’uah and he stopped him. Ibn Umar asked the man,” Are you praying four rakah for Jum’…

In the name of Allah Revive a Sunnah: Takbeer of Dhu'l-Hijjah
'Abd Allah ibn 'Umar (radi Allahu anhu) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:


"There are no days greater with Allah and more beloved to perform (good) deeds therein, than on these ten days, so recite much Tahleel (saying Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah), and Takbeer (saying Allaahu akbar) and Tahmeed (saying al-hamdu Lillaah)." [Musnad Ahmad, 7/224]


It is from the recommended Sunnah to become habitual in reciting the takbeer at any time during the first ten days of Dhu'l-Hijjah (and all the days of Tashreeq), beginning from the onset of the month of Dhu'l-Hijjah, until the end of the days of al-Tashreeq, when the sun has set on the thirteenth day of Dhul-Hijjah.


Revive this Sunnah by making your takbeer audible during all of the first ten days of Dhu'l-Hijjah. To show magnificence towards it, in your masajid, homes, roads, markets etc. and not to limit any good deeds…

In the name of Allah Revive a Sunnah: When Times Get Hard - Pray
Hudhayfah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: “Whenever the matter became serious the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) would pray.”


Collected by Abu Dawud (1319) and others. Graded as being Hasan by Shaykh Al-Albani (May Allah have mercy on him)


1. Muhammad Abdur-Rauf Al-Manaawee (may Allah have mercy on him) commented on this hadeeth. He wrote the words” Whenever the matter became serious” means- If the Prophet was attacked by surprise, on the verge of being subdued or an important matter aroused which caused him to worry or feel sad.


“He (peace and blessings be upon him) would pray.” Means - He’d pray because prayer helps against the removal of all heavy blows, disasters and misfortunes. Through prayer one is seeking the assistance of the Creator who allowed it to happen. Prayer is a means to draw nearer to Allah and whoever resorts to prayer to his lord will be protected and averted from all evil. [Faydul Qad…

Revive a Sunnah

In the name of Allah Revive a Sunnah: A Frequent Invocation that we Should Remember
Umm Salamah, Mother of the Believers (radi Allahu anha) said the Prophet (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) used to frequently say

يَا مُقَلِّبَ الْقُلُوبِ ثَبِّتْ قَلْبِى عَلَى دِينِكَ
"O Changer of the hearts, make my heart stick to Your religion.” 

So, I asked him, “O Messenger of Allah, why do you often say, “O Changer of the hearts make my heart stick to Your religion?” He said, “Oh Umm Salamah, every person’s heart is between the two fingers of Allah. Whoever Allah wants to remain guided he’s guided. And whoever Allah wishes to be lead astray deviates."


Collected by At-Tirmidhi, 3522; Al-Albani graded it a Saheeh in his checking of Sunan Tirmidhi.

Notes of Benefit:

Al-Imam, Al-Hafidh Al-Mubarakfuri (rahimahullah) wrote some wonderful words for this hadeeth in his explanation for Jaam’i At-Tirmidhi. He wrote:


1. “O Changer of the hearts…” Sometimes the heart is turned to obedience and other times…
