May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)


The Fruits of Seeking Forgiveness

Rasulullah (Sallallâhu alahi wasallam) said that whoever makes excessive Istighfar, he pleases Allâh, the connection which was broken due to sinning is restored by excessive weeping and crying, he restores the connection of servanthood. What favours will he receive? This will be explained further on. But friends, listen to the value of these tears. There is a hadith in Mishkât Shareef which is as follows:

Rasulullah (Sallallâhu alahi wasallam) says,

"If the tears of regret flow from the eyes of a believer onto his face due to the fear of Allâh even though they may be the size of the head of a fly, then Allâh will make the fire of Jahannum harâm on that face." [ Jaami Sagheer, فيض القدير شرح الجامع الصغير - الجزء الخامس]

Aalamgeer (Rahimahullâh) was once taking a bath in a canal when a little boy reached out to him. He greeted the king and told him he had a request for some property. On listening to the request, Aalamgeer (Rahimahullâh) held him by the hands and told him that he was going to drown him. The boy laughed loudly. Aalamgeer remarked that how can such a mental case get any property. You should have said, "Do not drown me," but instead you are laughing at the occasion of fear. This is the work of insane people. What property can you look after? He replied, ASir, first you should ask me why I am laughing? Then do whatever you decide to." So Aalamgeer (Rahimahullâh) asked him why he laughed. He said, ASir, you are the king. The fortune of the kings is very great. If my finger was in your hand, then I could not have drowned. Here both my hands are in your hands.

Imagine a child has so much trust in the favour of a worldly king, then how can you compare it to the favour of Allâh. If He places someone's face in Jannah, will He put the rest of his body into hell? Allâh is Kareem (noble). Mullâ Ali Qâri (Rahimahullâh) has explained the meaning of Kareem as follows:

"The one who gives without the recipient being worthy of it. He grants his favours and bounties to unworthy slaves. It is far-fetched for Him to enter the face of a person into Jannah and the rest of his body into hell." (Mirqât, vol. 3 p. 212)

Thus, we should all unhesitatingly seek forgiveness from Allâh and have hope. If tears do not emerge, then imitate the features of a crying person.

Joining the Magrib Salaah Late

Question: If one joins the Magrib Jamaat Salaah late, what is the method of completing the missed Rakaats?

Answers: A person who missed Rakaats with the Jamaat is called a Masbuq. A masbuq will follow the Imam as per normal, except that in the last sitting, he will only reads at-Tahiyyat and then remain silent until the Imam makes Salaam. (The Masbuq will not read salawat and supplications.)

1) If the Masbuq missed one Rakaat, he will stand up after the Imam completes the Salaah, he will read Thanaa, Ta’awwuz, Tasmiya, Surah Fatiha and a Surah. After Ruku and Sajdah he will complete Salaah as normal.

2) If two Rakaat were missed, then - when the Masbuq stands up to complete the missed Rakaats, he will read Thanaa, Ta’awwuz, Tasmiya, Surah Fatiha, a Surah, then go into Ruku and Sajdah, then he will then sit in Qa’idah and read at-Tahiyyat, after which he will stand up, read Surah Fatiha and a Surah and complete Salaah as normal.

3) If all three Rakaats were missed, the Masbuq will stand up after the Imaam makes Salaam and perform Salaah as if he is starting it from beginning.

والمسبوق من سبقه الإمام بها أو ببعضها وهو منفرداً فيما يقضيه - حتى يثني ويتعوذ ويقرء ... ويقضي اول صلاته في حق قراءة -وآخرها في تشهد ، فمدرك ركعة من غير فجر يأتي بركعتين بفاتحة وسورة وتشهد بينهما ( رد المحتار ج٢ ص ٣٤٧)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
