Fawaid: Recommended Recitation on the Night of 15th Sha’ban

Kanzul NajahRecommended recitation on the night of 15th Sha’ban adapted from Shaykh Abdul Hamid bin Muhammad Ali Quds Al-Makkiy Ash-Shaf’iy’s Kanz an-Najah wa as-Surur (Treasures of Success and Felicity)

It is the practice of many of the pious people of the Ummah to recite Surah Ya Sin three times on the 15th night of Sha`ban. The first time, it is read with the intention of being blessed with a long life spent in obedience to Allah, the second time with the intention that calamities are diverted, and the third time with the intention of not being in need of people and being blessed with a good ending. After each reading of Surah Ya Sin, the following supplication is read:

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الحمد لله رب العالمين

اللهم صل على سيدنا محمد و آله و صحبه و سلم

اللهم يا ذا المَنِّ ولا يُمَنُّ عَلَيْهِ يا ذا الجَلالِ والإكْرام ياذا الطَوْلِ والإنْعام لا إلهَ إلا أَنْتَ ظَهْرَ اللاَّجِينَ وجَارَ المُسْتَجِيرينَ وأَمَانَ الخائِفِينَ

اللهم إِنْ كُنْتَ كَتَبْتَنَا عِنْدَكَ أَشْقِياءَ أَوْ مَحْرومينَ أَوْ مَطْرودِينَ أَوْ مُقَتَّراً عَلَيْنَا في الرِّزْقِ فَامْحُ اللهم بِفَضْلِكَ شِقَاوَتَنا وحِرْمَانَنا وطَرْدَنا
وإِقْتَارَ أَرْزَاقَنَا وأَثْبِتْنَا عِنْدَكَ في أُمِّ الكِتابِ سُعَداءَ مَرْزوقينَ مُوَفَّقِينَ لِلْخَيْراتِ
فَإِنَّكَ قُلْتَ وقَوْلُكَ الحَقُّ في كِتابِكَ المُنْزَل على  لِسَانِ نَبِيِّكَ المُرْسَل – يَمْحُو اللهُ ما يَشَاءُ وَيُثْبِتُ وعِنْدَهُ أُمُّ الكِتَابِ

إلهَي بِالتَّجَلِّي الأَعْظَمِ في لَيْلَةِ النِّصْفِ مِنْ شَعَبانَ المُكَرَّمِ الَّتي يُفْرَقُ فِيها كُلُّ أَمْرٍ حَكِيمٍ وَيُبْرَمُ نَسَأَلُكَ أَنْ تَكْشِفَ عَنَّا مِنَ البَلاءِ ما نَعْلَمُ
وما لا نَعْلَمُ وما أَنْتَ بِهِ أَعْلَمُ إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ الأَعَزُّ الأَكْرَمُ

وصلى الله على سيدنا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه وسلم

Translation:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Compassionate.All praise is due to Allah Lord of the Worlds.

O Allah, bestow peace and blessings upon our Master Muhammad and upon his Family and Companions.

O Allah, the Bestower of favours. No one has favour over You. O Possessor of Majesty and Nobility, the One Who constantly bestows His bounties. There is no god but You, the One who grants safety and refuge to those that seek it and to those in fear.

O Allah, if You have recorded us as being wretched, deprived, cast out or if You have recorded that our provision be restricted then erase this by Your bounty. Instead record us in “the Mother of the Book” as being felicitous, as having plentiful provision and grant us the ability to do good works. Truly You have said, and Your word is true, in Your revealed Book, on the tongue of Your Prophet: Allah erases and confirms what He wishes and with Him is the Mother of the Book.

O Allah, through Your most mighty manifestation on the fifteenth night of Sha`ban the Ennobled, in which every decreed affair becomes distinct and unchangeable, we ask You to remove all tribulations, those that we know and those that we do not know and those about which You know more, truly You are the Most Mighty, the Most Generous.

O Allah, bestow peace and blessings upon our Master Muhammad and upon his Family and Companions.

Fawaid: Recommended Recitation for the Day of Arafah – 9th Zulhijjah

Kanzul NajahExtracts from Shaykh Abdul Hamid bin Muhammad Ali Quds Al-Makkiy Ash-Shaf’iy’s Kanz an-Najah wa as-Surur (Treasures of Success and Felicity)

It is mentioned in hadith from Ibnu Abbas that the one who recites “Qul huwa Allahu Ahad” (i.e. the whole of Surah al-Ikhlas) a thousand times on the Day of Arafah will be given what he asks for.

It is also mentioned in a hadith that the best doa to recite on the Day of Arafah is:

لاَ إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ ، لَهُ المُلْكُ ، وَلَهُ الحَمْدُ ، وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

Transliteration: La ilaha illallah, wah-dahu laa sharika lah, lahul-mul-ku wa la-hul hamdu, wa huwa ‘ala kulli shay-in qadir.’

Meaning: There is none worthy of worship but Allah alone without any partner. Belonging to Him is the Kingdom and belonging to Him is praise, and He has power over all things.

Likewise, the pious predecessors encourage reciting the above doa or zikir at least thousand times on the Day of Arafah.

Fawaid: To Do on the Night of Eid

Kanzul NajahExtracts from Shaykh Abdul Hamid bin Muhammad Ali Quds Al-Makkiy Ash-Shaf’iy’s Kanz an-Najah wa as-Surur (Treasures of Success and Felicity)

Rasulullah ﷺ said,

من أحيا ليلتي العيدين أحيا الله قلبه يوم تموت القلوب

Meaning: He who enlivens the two Eids (with ‘ibadah), Allah will enliven his heart on a day when hearts die.

The meaning of “enliven his heart on a day when hearts die” alludes to one’s safety on the Day of Judgement and protection from having a bad end to one’s life (su’ul-khatimah).

Rasulullah ﷺ also said,

من أحيا الليالي الأربع وجبت له الجنة ليلة التروية وليلة عرفة وليلة النحر وليلة الفطر

Meaning: Jannah is obligatory for the one who enlivens four nights – the Night of Tarwiyah, the Night of Arafah, the Night of Eidul-Adha and the Night of Eidul-Fitr.

Amongst the ways one can enliven the night of Eid (other than making Takbir al-Eid and performing Solah an-Nafilah, which are well known in the Deen) is by making lots of zikir.

The following fawaid are mentioned in Kanz an-Najah wa as-Surur:

Faedah #1: Recite 400 counts of the following zikiruAllah between the entrance of Maghrib on the Night of Eid and Solatul-Eid:

لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ , لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ , يُحْيِى وَيُمِيتُ  ,وَهُوَ حَىٌّ لاَ يَمُوتُ  ,بِيَدِهِ الْخَيْرُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

Meaning: There is no God but Allah, He is One and without partner, to Him is the Dominion and all praise, He gives life and brings forth death, He is Ever Living and doesn’t die, between His hands is goodness, He has power over all things

Rasulullah ﷺ said that whosoever recites in each of the two Eids (Eidul-Fitr and Eidul-Adha) 400 counts of “Laa ilaha illaAllah, wahdahu laa sharikalah, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamd, yuhyi wa yumit, wa huwa hayyun laa yamut, bi yadihil-khayr, wa huwa ‘ala kulli sha-in qadir” Allah will wed him with 400 maidens (in Jannah). And it (his rewards) would be as if he had free 400 slaves. And Allah will send angels to build for him cities and plant trees for him up till the Day of Resurrection.

Faedah #2: Recite 300 counts of the following zikiruAllah between the entrance of Maghrib on the Night of Eid and Solatul-Eid:

سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ

Meaning: Exalted is Allah and praise be to Him
