10 Sunan for the Masjid


After leading the ‘Asr Salaah in congregation at Gravesend Shaahjalaal Masjid on the day of the Pearls of Haqq Event: “Turn to Allaah”, Shaykh Mawlaanaa Asgar Husayn saahib (May Allaah Preserve Him) turned to face the congregation and after completing the masnoon dhikr, called the congregation to come closer.

Shaykh mentioned that on the Day of Judgment, people will seek just one reward tirelessly and without success. They will go to their mothers, their fathers, their loved ones, their close ones but no one will be willing to give them just one good deed.

Shaykh continued that if this is the case then we should make the most of this life we have and become steadfast on good deeds.

Shaykh mentioned that if we were to learn and practice upon 5 Sunan whilst entering the Masjid and 5 Sunan whilst leaving the Masjid, thus equalling 10 good rewards in total, Allaah ta’aalaa would increase the rewards by 10 as is narrated in many Ahadeeth.

Shaykh then mentioned that this would equal 100 good deeds each time we came to the Masjid, and that if we came to the Masjid 5 times a day for Salaah, this would equal 500 good deeds a day, which would equal 15,000 good deeds in a month.

Shaykh then asked the congregation whether they wished for him to teach them these 10 very short sunnah actions, which if followed and practiced, would add 15,000 good deeds to our account monthly.

Shaykh then mentioned the 10 ten masnoon actions before concluding with du’a.

The 5 Sunan when entering the Masjid:
1. Recite “Bismillaah”
2. Recite “Assalaatu wassalaamu ‘alaa Rasoolillaah”
3. Recite “Allaahum maftahli abwaaba rahmatik”
4. Enter with the right foot
5. Make an intention for i’tikaaf for the duration of your stay in the Masjid. (Shaykh stressed upon this point as point of continuous reward)

The 5 Sunan when leaving the Masjid:
1. Recite “Bismillaah”
2. Recite “Assalaatu wassalaamu ‘alaa Rasoolillaah”
3. Recite “Allaahumma innee asaluka min fadhlik” (Shaykh stressed upon this du’a mentioning that regular recitation and steadfastness would be greatly beneficial)
4. Leave with the left foot
5. Put your shoes on beginning with the right foot first.
