It was narrated that Jabir (RA) said: Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said, “Whoever says, when he hears the call to prayer (i.e. Adhan): Allahumma rabba hadhi-hid-dawat it-ta’mmah wa-salat-il-qa’imah aati Muhammadan al-wasilah wa-al-fadilah, wab’athu maqaman mahmuda al-ladhi wa’adthu. Will be granted my intercession on the Day of Resurrection.”
(Hadith No. 681, Book of Adhan, Sunan An-Nasa’i, Vol. 1).
Merits and/or Significance of this dua: Meaning of this dua is: O Allah, Lord of this perfect call and prayer to be offered, grant Muhammad (PBUH) the privilege and also the eminence and resurrect him to the praised position that you have promised. Regular recitation of this dua after each Adhanensures that our beloved Prophet (PBUH) intercedes for forgiveness of our sins on the Day of Judgement, Be-izn-Allah.
- Aishah (RA) narrated: When Allah’s Messenger said the Salam (after Salat), he would not remain seated except long enough to say: “Allahumma antas-salam, wa minkas-salam, tabarakata dhul-jalal- wal-ikram. (O Allah! You are the One free of defects and perfection/peace is from You. Blessed are You, Possessor of majesty and Honour).”
(Hadith No. 298, Chapters on Salat, Jami’ At-Tirmidhi, Vol. 1).
- K’ab bin Ujrah narrated that the Prophet (PBUH) said, “There are Mu’aqqibat, he who says them shall not be miserable. Glorify Allah at the end of every prayer thirty-three times (say Subhan Allah), and praise Him thirty-three times (say Alhumdolillah), and extol his greatness thirty-four times (say Allah-u-Akbar).”
It was narrated that Umar bin Al-Khattab (RA) said: Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said, “Whoever performs Wudu and does it well then says: Ash-hadu an la ilaha illallah wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan abduhu wa-rasuluhu, eight gates of Paradise will be opened for him, and he may enter through whichever one he wishes.”
(Hadith No. 148, Book of Purification, Sunan An-Nasa’i, Vol. 1).
