Du’a Upon Sighting the New Moon & The First 10 Days of Dhul-Hijjah

 

The Darussalam newsletter is awesome…ever since I’ve subscribed to it, I get event announcements, du’as and new lectures by Imam Safi Khan delivered straight to my inbox.

Here’s an absolutely beautiful du’a that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) used to recite upon sighting the new moon:

 

‘Allaah is the greatest. O Allaah, let the crescent loom above us in safety, faith, peace, and Islaam, and bless us with the ability to succeed in all that you love and are pleased with. (O Moon) Our Lord and your Lord is Allaah.’   Tirmidhi    

اللهُ أَكْـبَر، اللّهُمَّ أَهِلَّـهُ عَلَيْـنا بِالأمْـنِ وَالإيمـان، والسَّلامَـةِ والإسْلامِ، وَالتَّـوْفيـقِ لِما تُحِـبُّ وَتَـرْضَـى، رَبُّنـا وَرَبُّكَ اللهُ

Why Love the Messenger (SAW)?

So why are we obligated to love Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)? 

1) Allah has obligated us to love him.

2) Allah loves him.

3) He had a beautiful character and impeccable manners.

4) None of us will be able to truly emulate him until we love him.

5) He went through countless struggles to make sure Islam would reach us today.

6) He had immense love and concern for us.

7) A person will be raised with those whom he loves.

8) To relish the sweetness of faith.

Hajj Workshop Resources by Darussalam

On October 9th, Imam Safi Khan of Darussalam had a Hajj Workshop. I wasn’t able to make it but I emailed them asking for a recording of the workshop and they sent me a link that had all the  audio and power point files. So here’s the link; share the khayr and earn some Sadaqah Jari’ah for yourself!
