Sh. Haitham: My first response to the Paris incident
By: Shaikh (Dr) Haitham Al-Haddad
“Allāh and His angels send blessings on the Prophet: O you who believe! Send your blessings on him, and salute him with all respect.”
Alḥāmdulillāh, today is the auspicious day of Jumuʿah (Friday), a day for which we know as reported by Aus b. Aus (raḍiy Allāhu ʿanhu) that the Messenger of Allāh (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) said:
“Among the best of your days is Friday; so supplicate Allāh more often for me in it, for your supplications will be displayed to me.” He was asked: “O Messenger of Allāh! How will our blessings be displayed to you when your decayed body will have mixed with the earth?” He (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) replied, “Allāh has prohibited the earth from consuming the bodies of the Prophets.”
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said: “By his good character a believer will attain the degree of one who prays during the night and fasts during the day.”
