Read Hadith no. 463 under Backbenchers. It’s a repeat.
When I first read this Hadith, I was so surprised. And very happy too. And since then I’ve been putting it into practice. It’s just too much fun. :)
Volume 1, Book 8, Number 464:
Narrated ‘Abbad bin Tamim:
that his uncle said, “I saw Allah’s Apostle lying flat (on his back) in the mosque with one leg on the other.” Narrated Said bin Al-Musaiyab that ‘Umar and ‘Uthman used to do the same.
In the masjid? Really? :O
Yeah. Mhmm. In the masjid. He was ‘chillaxing’. You should try it too.
Whenever I lie down in a masjid, it’s like an inside joke and I end up smiling to myself. People look at you like you’re a very bad person, showing disrespect to the masjid and all. But only you know that you’re following the Prophet (SAW) and actually getting reward for chillin’ in the mosque. ;)
When you go for Eid prayer tomorrow, do try it. Do let me know if you ended up smiling to yourself! :D
