Y U NO? (Hadith No. 809)

Assalamu`alaykum,
Bismillah.

Here’s the complete title of this post: Y U NO WAKE YOUR SPOUSE UP FOR TAHAJJUD/WITR?

Volume 2, Book 16, Number 809:

Narrated ‘Aisha :

The Prophet (p.b.u.h) used to offer his night prayer while I was sleeping across in his bed. Whenever he intended to offer the Witr prayer, he used to wake me up and I would offer the Witr prayer too.

Nuff said. Hehe.

It is highly recommended that one wakes up one’s own partner for this prayer. Abu Hurairah quoted the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) as saying:

“May Allah bless the man who gets up during the night to pray and wakes up his wife and who, if she refuses to get up, sprinkles water on her face. And may Allah bless the woman who gets up during the night to pray and wakes up her husband and who, if he refuses, sprinkles water on his face.” (Ahmad)

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) also said:

“If a man wakes his wife and prays during the night or they pray two rak`ahs together, they will be recorded among those (men and women) who (constantly) make remembrance of Allah.” (Abu Dawud.)

May Allah give us the tawfeeq:

  • to have spouses who don’t mind water being sprinkled on their faces while they’re sleeping. :P
  • and to follow this beautiful Sunnah of the Prophet (SAW). <3

Y U NO? That was random..

Wassalam.

Leaving After Prayer.. Immediately (Hadith No. 810)

Salam,
Bismillah.

Hadith no. 809 is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 1, Book 12, Number 810:

Narrated ‘Uqba:

I offered the ‘Asr prayer behind the Prophet at Medina. When he had finished the prayer with Taslim, he got up hurriedly and went out by crossing the rows of the people to one of the dwellings of his wives. The people got scared at his speed . The Prophet came back and found the people surprised at his haste and said to them, “I remembered a piece of gold lying in my house and I did not like it to divert my attention from Allah’s worship, so I have ordered it to be distributed (in charity).”

So like it’s good to remain sitting on your prayer place for a while after finishing your prayer. It gives you time to do the after-Salah adhkaar and make du`a. But, if it’s an emergency, you may leave your place immediately. For something as important as Prophet (SAW) had to do in this particular Hadith.

And SubhanAllah, the kind of stuff that worried the Messenger of Allah (SAW). Like whoa!

Wassalam.
