Revive a Sunnah: Passing Drinks to the Right

Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

Allah's Messenger (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) came to our house and he asked for a drink. We milked a goat for him and then mixed it (the milk) with the water of this well of mine. I gave it to Allah's Messenger (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) and he drank it, while Abu Bakr was on his left and 'Umar was in front of him, and a desert Arab was on his right. When Allah's Messenger (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) had finished the drink, Umar said: Allah's Messenger, here is Abu Bakr, give him to drink; but Allah's Messenger (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) gave it to the desert Arab and he left out Abu Bakr and Umar. And Allah's Messenger (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: Those on the right, those on the right, those on the right (deserve preference). Anas (radi Allahu anhu) said: This is the Sunnah, this is the Sunnah, this is the Sunnah. [Muslim]

Just as we use our right hands for eating and drinking, we should start with our right sides when putting on clothing, stepping into the masjid, combing our hair, etc.

Also, it is Sunnah to pass something to the right and even when greeting a group, it is encouraged for us to shake hands and continue going to the right until you have greeted everyone.

Revive a Sunnah: Wiping out sins

Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu) reported: The Messenger of Allah (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said, 

لا اله الا الله وحده لا شريك له، له الملك وله الحمد، وهو على كل شيء قدير

“He who utters a hundred times in a day these words: `La ilaha illallahu, wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu, wa Huwa `ala kulli sha’in Qadir (there is no true god except Allah. He is One and He has no partner with Him; His is the sovereignty and His is the praise, and He is Omnipotent),’ he will have a reward equivalent to that for emancipating ten slaves, a hundred good deeds will be recorded to his credit, a hundred of his sins will be blotted out from his scroll, and he will be safeguarded against the shaytan on that day till the evening; and no one will exceed him in doing more excellent good deeds except someone who has recited these words more often than him. And he who utters: `Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi (Allah is free from imperfection and His is the praise)’ one hundred times a day, his sins will be obliterated even if they are equal to the extent of the foam of the ocean.”

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Revive a Sunnah:  Maintaining the 1/3rd rule in eating

Miqdam bin Madikarib said: “I heard the Messenger of Allah (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) say:

‘A human being fills no worse vessel than his stomach. It is sufficient for a human being to eat a few mouthfuls to keep his spine straight. But if he must (fill it), then one third of food, one third for drink and one third for air.’” [Ibn Majah]

It is an underestimated fact that food has a dramatic effect on your body’s and brain’s performance. This hadith clearly highlights that overeating is a reprehensible quality we should stay away from. However, it is also important to remember that undereating is equally as harmful to a person. In order to function, we need to have a balanced outlook towards our meals; your level of food consumption should not leave you feeling tired or bloated as this is a state that leads to laziness, which is a vice we seek refuge in Allah from.

So, eat a nutritious, balanced meal that is sufficient in suppressing your hunger.

Revive a Sunnah:  Concerning the Merit of Supplicating During the Last Hour on Friday and the Agreement of the Companions Regarding That

by The Albaani Blog

“The Prophet (sallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said, ‘Friday is divided into twelve hours. Amongst them there is an hour in which a Muslim does not ask Allaah for anything but He gives it to him. So seek it in the last hour after the afternoon [’Asr] prayer.’ Saheeh Abu Dawud, no. 1048.

Shaikh al-Albaani (may Allaah have mercy on him) said, ‘And the agreement of the Companions that it is the last hour on Friday has been authentically reported, so it is not allowed to oppose them.’ Saheeh at-Taghreeb, 1/444.”

As-Saheeh al-Mustakhraj fi Ahadith al-’Ad’iyah wal-Adhkaar wa Fadaailil-Quraan, pp. 191-192.


Ask forgiveness of your Lord. Indeed, He is ever a Perpetual Forgiver. He will send [rain from] the sky upon you in [continuing] showers; And give you increase in wealth and children and provide for you gardens and provide for you rivers. [Nuh: 10-12]

Al-Haafidh Emaad ad-Deen Isma’eel Ibn Katheer (d. 774 A.H.) (rahimahullaah) said in his Tafseer about this Ayaat:

“If you repented to Allah and sought forgiveness from Him and showed obedience to Him your Rizq (provision) would increase and rain would fall from the blessings of the skies, and the blessings of the earth would spring forth, crops would grow for you. You will be given abundant livestock. You will be aided with wealth and offspring; meaning that offspring and wealth would be given to you. And you will be given gardens that have numerous types of fruits and throughout there will be rivers that flow in these gardens. This is the way of giving Dawa’ by encouragement.”
