An ideal of sincerity

             Once, during Jihad, Hazrat Ali Radiallahu anhu, having overpowered an enemy was to strike his final blow with his sword. However, just before he could do so, this enemy spat in the face of Hazrat Ali Radiallahu anhu.

             Even though this created displeasure, Hazrat Ali
Radiallahu anhu immediately moved away, placing his sword into its sheath. Whilst he had had the upperhand and the opportunity to kill this disbeliever, he left him; not even considering that now his life was in danger.

              Such strange behaviour confused the enemy and prompted him to question Hazrat Ali
Radiallahu anhu : “What kind of behaviour is this ? After having insulted you, you should have killed me immediately.  I was under your sword, and helplessly at your mercy. Why did you let me go?”

              Hazrat Ali
Radiallahu anhu replied : “All the while, I had been fighting for the pleasure of Allah. When you spat in my face, my nafs was provoked. My anger was then not sincerely for the pleasure of Allah but due to personal injury. Had I killed you, this act would have been tainted with the anger of my nafs. Allah does not accept any deed done without sincerity. I would have then been questioned, on the Day of Judgement, about whether I had taken your life for my pleasure or Allah’s pleasure.”

               Hazrat Ali
Radiallahu anhu was prepared to become a Shaheed (martyr), but he was not prepared to accept victory whilst it was blemished with nifaaq (hypocrisy). His Ikhlaas had such an impact on the heart of this non-Muslim that he embraced Islam on the spot: "I bear witness that there is no god but Allah," he said, "and I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah"

1. Immediately upon awakening rub the face and the eyes with both the palms in order to remove the effects of sleep. (Shamaaile Tirmidhi).
2. When the eyes open in the morning recite this dua:
Allahamdulila hilazi ahyana ba’da ma amatana wae laihin nushoor - (Bukhari, Abu Dawood, Muslim)
All praise is due to Allah who brought us to life after having granted us death and to Him will we be resurrected.
3. When awakening from sleep cleanse the mouth with a Miswaak. (Musnad Ahmad, Abu Dawood pg. 8).
4. The use of the Miswaak should be repeated when making Wudhu. Using the Miswaak upon awakening is a separate Sunnat. (Bazlul Majhood, “Commentary of Abu Dawood” Vol.1 pg.35).
5. When wearing one’s trousers, first put on the right leg, then the left one. When putting on a kurta or shirt, first put on the right sleeve and then the left one. The same procedure should be followed when wearing a vest. When wearing a shoe, first put on the right shoe. When removing any garment or shoe, first remove the left, then the right. This is the sunnat method when removing any garment from the body (Bukhari, Tirmidhi “the chapter on clothing” and Shamaaile Tirmidhi).
6. Before immersing the hands into any utensils, wash them thrice thoroughly. (Tirmidhi Vol. 1, pg. 13)
1. For the purpose of istinjah, take along water and lumps of clay. To use three lumps of clay or three stones is mustahab (preferable). If circumstances prevail, then this will be sufficient. Due to (clay lumps), difficulties are experienced in flushing the toilets. Thus, the Ulama have advised that toilet paper should be used so that the flush is not spoilt.
2. It was the practice of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu alaihe wasallam) to visit the toilet with his head covered and with his shoes on. (Alaikum besunnati)
3. Before entering the toilet recite this dua:
Bismillah – Allahumma Inni aouzubika minal kubusi walkabais - (Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi, Ibne Majah)
O Allah! I seek your protection from the male and female Jinns.
Note: Mullah Ali Qari (Rahmatulla hi alaih) has written in Mirqaat that with the blessings of the recitation of this dua, a veil is cast between the person visiting the toilet and the evil Jinns.
Hence they are unable to see one’s private parts. He has also written that the (Ba) of the word Alkubus can be read with either a dhamma (Pesh) or a Saakin (Jazm). (Mirqaat Vol. 1, pg. 361)
4. When entering the toilet, enter with the left foot. (Alaikum besunnati quoting from Ibne Majah)
5. When removing the undergarment, it is better to lower oneself towards the ground as much as easily

possible and thereafter remove the garment. (Tirmidhi, Abu Dawood).
6. When coming out from the toilet, step out with the right foot first and then recite this dua:
Gufranaka Alhamdulila hilazi azhaba annil aza wa’fani -
O Allah! I seek forgiveness from you. All praise is due to Allah who removed from me that which was harmful and granted me safety.
7. Before entering the toilet, remove any ring etc, upon which any Aayat or the name of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu alaihe wasallam) is visible (Nasai). If a Ta’weez is covered with a cloth and sewn, it will be permissible to enter the toilet while wearing it.

Ibne Maajah)
11. Do not touch the private parts with the right hand during istinjaa. Use the left hand for this purpose. (Bukhari, Abu Dawood)
12. Where a toilet is not available, relieve oneself behind some barrier so that one is not exposed to others. (Abu Dawood, Ibne Majah)
13. Search for soft ground (when relieving oneself in the open) so that the urine does not splash but is rather absorbed into the ground. (Tirmidhi, Abu Dawood)
14. Sit and urinate. Do not urinate while standing. (Tirmidhi)
15. After urinating, if one needs to dry himself he should do so behind some barrier (i.e. wall etc.) (Bihishti Gohar)
16. Perform Wudhu according to the Sunnat at home.
17. Perform the Sunnats at home before going to the Masjid. If there is no time for this, the same could be performed in the Masjid.
18. Note: In today’s times, due to Sunnats being neglected, it is preferable to perform them in the Masjid. (Kamaalate Ashrafiya)
1. When leaving home for the Masjid or for any other place, recite this Dua: (Tirmidhi, Abu Dawood, and Ibne Maajah)

Allahumajalni minat tawabina waj alni minal mutatahirin - (Tirmidhi Vol. 1, pg 18)
O Allah, include me amongst those who repent excessively and amongst those who purify themselves.
Note: Regarding the above Dua Mullah Ali Qari (Rahmatulla hi alaih) has written in Mirqaat, commentary of Mishkaat, that while Wudhu purifies one externally, this dua is a supplication for internal purity. It is as though one is supplicating that, “O Allah, we have cleansed ourselves externally, which was within our power. O Allah, you now purify us internally as well, through your mercy.
The above mentioned procedure was the Sunnat method. Certain acts are compulsory in Wudhu. If even one is left out or has some deficiency, then Wudhu will not be complete. In Wudhu, there are only four Faraaidh (compulsory acts).
1. To wash the entire face once
2. To wash both hands including the elbows once
3. To make Masah of a quarter of the head once.
4. To wash both feet once upto and including the ankles.
By doing so much the Wudhu will be completed. However, by performing Wudhu according to the Sunnat method, one’s Wudhu will be perfected and more reward will be attained.
First wash both hands upto the wrists. Thereafter wash off any impurity that may be on the body of both the front and back private parts (whether there is a need for this or not). Now perform Wudhu according to the Sunnat manner. If one is taking a bath in such a place where the water does not flow away but instead gathers at the feet, then do not wash the feet there. After the Wudhu, pour water over the head thrice (sufficient water should be poured so that the entire body is completely drenched). Rub the body with the hands so that no part remains dry. If even a hair span is left dry, the ghusl will be incomplete. In short, ensure that water passes over the entire body. Thereafter, move away from this place to a pure spot to wash one’s feet. If, however, the feet had been washed at the time of Wudhu, then there is no need to repeat. (Behishti Zewar, Shami Vol. 1, pg. 157– 159)
Note: The act of wiping oneself with a towel after ghusl is also recorded in the Hadith. Likewise not to wipe oneself but to allow the water to dry up on its own is also recorded in the Hadith. Hence, whichever of the two methods are adopted, make the intention of fulfilling the Sunnat. (NasaiVol.1, pg. 31, TirmidhiVol.1, pg.18, Shami Vol.1, pg. 99)

The above mentioned method is the sunnat procedure for ghusl. In ghusl, some acts are compulsory. Without which one’s ghusl will not be correct and one will remain impure. Thus it is necessary to have the knowledge of what is compulsory in ghusl. Only three acts are compulsory in ghusl.
1. To gargle one’s mouth (in such a method that water reaches the entire mouth.)
2. To place water in the nose (up to the soft portion).
3. To make water reach the entire body.
1. It is Sunnat to face the Qibla while saying the Azaan and Iqaamah. (Maraaqiul Falaah pg. 106, I’laaussunanVol.2, pg.126)
2. It is Sunnat to say the Azaan with pauses after each phrase while the Sunnat method of Iqaamah is to say it quickly. (Tirmidhi Vol.1, pg.285)
3. During the Azaan it is Sunnat to turn the face to the right when saying: Haiya alas salah and towards the left when saying, Haiya alal falah However, the chest and the feet should remain towards the direction of the Qibla. (Maraaqipg.106, ShamiVol.1, pg. 285)
4. It is Sunnat to repeat the words of the Azaan after the Muazzin (in reply to the Azaan). When the Muazzin call out Haiya alas salah and Haiya alal Falah reply with: La howla wala quwata illa billa (Bukhari, Muslim)
5. In the Azaan of Fajar when the Muazzin calls out: Assalatu khairum minan noum reply with: Sadaqta wabararta (Maraaqiul Falaah pg. 110)
6. The reply will be given to the Iqaamah in the same way as it is given for Azaan. However, in reply to Qadqamatis salah one should say: Aqaamahalahu wa’adamaha (Abu Dawood)
7. After the Azaan it is Sunnat to recite Durood Sharief (Muslim Vol.1 pg.166)
8. Thereafter recite this Dua which is narrated in the chapter of Azaan in Bukhari Sharief.
Allahumma rabba hazi iddawatit tamati wasalatil qaaemati aati muhammadinil waseelata walfazilata wabashu maqamam mahmooda nilazi wa’ata Innaka la tukliful meea’ad -
O’ Allah the Lord of this perfect call and the Lord of the prayer which is about to be performed, grant Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihe wasallam) the intercession and the virtue and grant him the praised position (Almaqaamul Mahmood) which you have promised him. Verily you do not contradict your promise.
The words Innaka la tukliful meea’ad are not narrated in Bukhari Sharif. Imam Baihaqi has narrated it in
SunaneKubra. (HisneHaseen with commentary Fadhle Mubeen)
Note: To add the words waddarajatar Rafeeata or to add Ya arhamar raheemeen at the end is not established from any narration. (Hence it should not be added on in the Dua after azaan).
