Pearls of a Muslim

It is reported that on the first night of Ramadân, ‘Umar – Allâh be pleased with him – would pray Maghrib, then say (to the people):

Sit down. Then he would give a small address: Verily the fasting of this month has been made a duty upon you, and standing in night prayer has not been made a duty upon you, but those amongst you who can stand in prayer should do so, for it is from the extra good deeds about which Allâh told us: so whoever cannot stand in prayer, let him sleep on his bed.

The Month of Rajab..

قال أبو بكر البلخي:  مثل شهر رجب كالريح ، ومثل شعبان مثل الغيم ، ومثل رمضان مثل المطر ، ومن لم يزرع ويغرس في رجب ، ولم يسق في شعبان فكيف يريد أن يحصد في رمضان 

Abu Bakr al-Balkhi said: “The Month of Rajab is like wind, the Month of Shabaan is like clouds, and the Month of Ramadan is like the rain. Whoever doesn’t plant and sow in Rajab and doesn’t irrigate in Shabaan how are you going to expect plants in Ramadan? “

An excerpt taken from the ChapterListening to The ‘Eid Khutbah

Al-Haafidh Ibn Battal mentioned in ‘Sharh Saheeh al-Bukhaaree’, vol.2, pg. 572: “The scholars considered the people talking as the Imaam gives the khutbah as being makrooh (disliked).”

Regarding the hadeeth: “Indeed, we will give the khutbah, thus whoever wishes to stay for the khutbah is to sit and stay and whoever wishes to leave, may leave.”

The majority of the People of Knowledge are of the opinion that this hadeeth is mursal and from those scholars who were of this opinion include: Ibn Ma’een, Abu Zur’ah ar-Raazee, an-Nasaa’ee, Abu Daawood, al-Bayhaqee and al-Waadi’ee. And mursal is from the categories of weak hadeeth.

Ibn Rajab (rahimahullaah) said:

“O servants of Allaah, indeed the month of Ramadhaan has prepared to leave, and nothing remains except a few more days.

Whoever has done well during the month should continue to do well, and whoever was deficient, should try to end the month in good, for indeed actions are according to their completion.

Therefore, take advantage of what remains of the month, and give the month the best farewell and peace.”
