Seriously Short Reminder No. 21: Ask for it three times…

by Umm Muawiyah

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

Ask for what, you say?

Paradise, of course.

من سأل الله الجنة ثلاث مرات قالت الجنة : اللهم أدخله الجنة ، ومن استجار من النار ثلاث مرات ، قالت النار : اللهم أجره من النار

Anas ibn Malik (radiallahu anhu) narrated that the Prophet (salallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “Whoever asks for Paradise three times, Paradise says: “O Allah, admit him into Paradise,’ and whoever seeks refuge from the Fire three times, the Fire says: ‘O Allah, save him from the Fire”. [Sunan At-Tirmidhi, Hadeeth No. 2572. Graded ‘sahih” by Al-Albani in Sahih Sunan At-Tirmidhi, Hadeeth No. 2572.]

Let’s make this a daily habit, insha-Allah.

    O my Lord! We turn to you, beseeching you, for none can give what you withhold and none can withhold what you give, and it is only to You that we turn to help; allow us to enter Jannah, to be blessed with the highest levels of Jannatul Firdous, to be honoured with the company of the Messenger of Allah (s.aw) and those we love, close to You, O my Lord (s.w.t), in the beloved gardens therein, tranquility descending upon the inhabitants of Jannah, may we be of those people, those whom You favour with nearness to Yourself in Jannah, aameen.

    O You who forgive those that trangress against themselves and against the limits You have ordained for us in this world, and who accepts the repentence of His slaves, and who Knows what we reveal and what we conceal, and has knowledge over all things, our sins recorded by the angels You have appointed for such a purpose, and the One who will Judge us on the Day of Judgemnet, to enter us into Jannah or Jahannam…. we beg You, O Most Merciful of all those who possess mercy, save us from the fires of Jahannam, protect us from Your torment and punishment, from Your wrath and displeasure; for none can save us on that Day, from the raging blaze of the fires fuelled by men and stones, burning, terrifying, beyond our ability to conceive in its horror… except from You, other than You, so please, please, Ya Rabb, save us from Jahannam, from the Hellfire, and from the heat of Jahannam, save our limbs from the pain of being burned by its fires, save our eyes from beholding the flames of Jahannam, save our ears from hearing the screams of the inhabitants of Jahannam, save us from beholding the smell of Jahannam and leave for us only the beautiful fragrance of Firdous, and our eyes to witness the beauty of Your Face, to be cooled by the beauty of Jannah, for our ears to hear the call of salaams, ‘peace, peace’ from every angle, as is the greeting of the people of Jannah, and for our limbs to be clothed in the garments of Jannah, to live in peace and security, close to You (s.w.t)…

    O my Lord! Ya Rabb! Allow us to reach the beloved month of Ramadaan, and live and die only on the path of Islam, upon Your path, with the Shahadah lived while we have life and upon our lips, and in our heart, at the time of death; may we be, all those who read this, and all those who do not, from the people of Firdous; for the duaa made for one’s brother in their absence is accepted, and I pray that those that read this make the same for the Ummah of the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w), that we love for others what we love for ourselves; for if we do not love Jannah, and fear the Hellfire, we are lost and have been led astray, thus I pray we are guided to the light and the beauty and the love of this glorious deen, this way of life that You have blessed and honoured us with out of Your Mercy… Aameen.

    -Please keep me in your duaas, my beloved sisters-

    Also, go to *Link removed* for the brother has many posts similar to this one (and just as inspiring Alhamdulillah), may Allah reward him, and I pray we can take benefit from what we learn, and emulate the way of the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w), by learning from the hadith that come our way, aameen.

      Assalamu Alaikum Sister.

      Ameen to all your duas.

      A note: I had to remove this link as well. I checked this site and it was quite good, masha-Allah. Unfortunately, then I happened to notice that the brother has advice from the same Naqshabandi (that you had linked to) on his other blog.

      As I said, I’m very particular about who I link to as this is something that I have to answer for on the Last Day.

      Jazakillahu kheira.

        I understand Alhamdulillah, but may I ask what Naqshabandi is?

          Assalamu Alaikum Sister.

          Please accept my apologies for the late reply.

          Naqshabandi is basically one of the Sufi orders. Like all the other Sufi orders, this too has lots of innovation.

          If you need more info, just let me know and I’ll try to gather something for you, insha-Allah.

            Jazakallah khairan, Allhamdulillah.

            May Allah keep us on the straight path, the path He has chosen for us to follow, in accordance to the Qur’aan and the Sunnah, and grant us an easy reckoning, and forgive our mistakes, and draw us clos to Him (s.w.t), Aameen.
