Entering a Mosque: First Thing (Ahadith 434-435)


Volume 1, Book 8, Number 434:

Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah:

I went to the Prophet in the mosque (the sub-narrator Mas’ar thought that Jabir had said, “In the forenoon.”) He ordered me to pray two Rakat. He owed me some money and he repaid it to me and gave more than what was due to me.

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 435:

Narrated Abu Qatada Al-Aslami:

Allah’s Apostle said, “If anyone of you enters a mosque, he should pray two Rakat before sitting.”

This is a very important Sunnah we need to remember and put into practice inshaAllah. Doesn’t hurt to pray two extra Rakat, right? Imagine all the hasanaat you get. :)


Quick question: who knows the du’a to be recited upon entering a mosque? It’s easy!
First correct answer gets a special prize from me, and reward from Allah as well inshaAllah. :D

  1. Aoothu billaahil-Adheem, wa bi- wajhihil-kareem, wa sultanihil-qadeem, minash-shaytaanir-rajeem.[Bismillahi wassalatu].[ Wassalaamu alaa rasoolillahi], Alahhum-maftah lee abwaaba rahmatika.

    • Faatimah (RA) reported that when Allah’s Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) entered the Masjid, he invoked blessings and peace upon Muhammad (himself) and then said: “My Lord, forgive my sins and open unto me the gates of Your Mercy.” And as he went out of the Masjid, he would supplicate for blessings and peace upon Muhammad (himself) and say: “My Lord, forgive my sins and open unto me the doors of Your Bounty.” (Muslim, Mishkaat, Chapter: of Masjid and the places of Salah.)

      So this part is enough:
      اللَّهُمَّ افْتَحْ لِي أَبْوَابَ رَحْمَتِكَ

      Congratulations. :)

  2. I want the prize. :(
