HADITH (Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him)

Abu Muhammad Ka`b bin `Ujrah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) came to us and we asked him, "O Messenger of Allah, we already know how to greet you (i.e., say As-salamu `alaikum), but how should we supplicate for you?'' He (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said, "Say:

Allahumma salli `ala Muhammadin, wa `ala `ali Muhammadin, kama sallaita `ala `ali Ibrahima, innaka Hamidum Majid. Allahumma barik `ala Muhammadin, wa `ala `ali Muhammadin, kama barakta `ala `ali Ibrahima, innaka Hamidum Majid.

O Allah, exalt the mention of Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as you exalted the family of Ibrahim. You are Praised and Glorious. O Allah, bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as You blessed the family of Ibrahim. You are Praised and Glorious.''' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Commentary: In this Hadith, the Salam means the supplication which is recited in At-Tashahhud. The Companions of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) used to recite it in At-Tashahhud in the manner taught by him. When Almighty Allah ordained Muslims to supplicate for the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam), it raised the question in their minds as to the wordings of the benediction (as they already knew how to greet him). They asked the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) and he taught it. Invoking Allah's blessings upon the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) should be done in the manner which he (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) has taught us, because in doing so we get the reward of following the guidance of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam).

An Elderly couple were celebrating their sixtieth anniversary. The couple had married as childhood sweethearts and had moved back to their old neighbourhood after they retired.

Holding hands they walked back to their old school. It was not locked, so they entered, and found the old desk they'd shared. On their way back home, a bag of money fell out of an armoured car, practically landing at their feet. Sally quickly picked it up, but not sure what to do with it, they took it home. There, she counted the money--fifty-thousand dollars.

Andy said, "We've got to give it back." Sally said, "Finders keepers." She put the money back in the bag and hid it in their attic. The next day, two FBI men were canvassing the neighbourhood looking for the money, and knocked on the door.

"Pardon me, but did either of you find a bag that fell out of an armoured car yesterday?" Sally said, "No." Andy said, "She's lying. She hid it up in the attic." Sally said, "Don't believe him, he's getting senile." The agents turn to Andy and began to question him.

One says: "Tell us the story from the beginning." Andy said, "Well, when Sally and I were
walking home from school yesterday . . .”

The first FBI guy turns to his partner and says, "We're outta here"
