Afternoon Nap on Friday (Ahadith 758 – 761)

Assalamu`alaykum,
Bismillah.

Last post from Kitaab-ul-Jumu`ah [Book of Friday]. Alhamdulillah.

Volume 2, Book 13, Number 758:

Narrated Sahl bin Sad:

There was a woman amongst us who had a farm and she used to sow Silq (a kind of vegetable) on the edges of streams in her farm. On Fridays she used to pull out the Silq from its roots and put the roots in a utensil. Then she would put a handful of powdered barley over it and cook it. The roots of the Silq were a substitute for meat. After finishing the Jumua prayer we used to greet her and she would give us that food which we would eat with our hands, and because of that meal, we used to look forward to Friday.

Volume 2, Book 13, Number 759:

Narrated Sahl:

As above with the addition: We never had an afternoon nap nor meals except after offering the Jumua prayer.

Volume 2, Book 13, Number 760:

Narrated Anas:

We used to offer the Jumua prayer early and then have the afternoon nap.

Volume 2, Book 13, Number 761:

Narrated Sahl:

We used to offer the Jumua prayer with the Prophet and then take the afternoon nap.

  • Silq, the vegetable, is the beetroot (chiqandar).
  • Companions used to go to the woman’s place every Friday, just to enjoy the meal. And they looked forward to Friday for this very reason. Haha. Food! :D
  • They used to offer Jumu`ah, then eat and then take the afternoon nap.
    Actually, the afternoon nap is very good for one’s health. But there’s some things you should know about it. For example, napping for 20-30 minutes and falling asleep for 2-3 hours are two different things. :P
    And check this out. They say the best time to nap is between 1 PM – 3 PM = right after Jumu`ah/Dhuhr Salah. (y)
    See? Sunnah is cool.

Hehe. Loved this one!

 

Wassalam.

Allah Heard Whoever Praised Him (Ahadith 761, 762, 764)

Salam,
Bismillah.

Volume 1, Book 12, Number 761:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

When the Prophet said, “Sami’ a-l-lahu Liman hamida,” (Allah heard those who sent praises to Him), he would say, “Rabbana wa-laka-l-hamd.” On bowing and raising his head from it the Prophet used to say Takbir. He also used to say Takbir on rising after the two prostrations. (See Hadith No. 656).

Volume 1, Book 12, Number 762:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle said, “When the Imam says, “Sami’ a-l-lahu Liman hamida,” you should say, “Allahumma Rabbana laka-l-hamd.” And if the saying of any one of you coincides with that of the angels, all his past sins will be forgiven.”

We’ll do Hadith No. 763 tomorrow iA.

Volume 1, Book 12, Number 764:

Narrated Rifa’a bin Rafi AzZuraqi:

One day we were praying behind the Prophet. When he raised his head from bowing, he said, “Sami’a-l-lahu Liman hamida.” A man behind him said, “Rabbana walaka-l hamd hamdan Kathiran taiyiban mubarakan fihi” (O our Lord! All the praises are for You, many good and blessed praises). When the Prophet completed the prayer, he asked, “Who has said these words?” The man replied, “I.” The Prophet said, “I saw over thirty angels competing to write it first.” Prophet rose (from bowing) and stood straight till all the vertebrae of his spinal column came to a natural position.

So you may say Rabbanaa laka-l-hamd, or Rabbanaa walaka-l-hamd, or Allahumma rabbanaa laka-l-hamd, or Rabbana walaka-l hamd hamdan Kathiran taiyiban mubarakan fihi. Doesn’t take long to day these absolutely beautiful words. So JUST DO IT! :D

Wassalam.
