Sunnats and Aadaab of the Musjid – Part 9

1. Recite the masnoon dua upon leaving the musjid.
Dua One:

بِسْمِ اللهِ وَالصَّلاَةُ وَالسَّلاَمُ عَلٰى رَسُولِ اللهِ اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ

In the name of Allah Ta’ala. May peace and salutations be upon Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). O Allah Ta’ala, I ask You for Your bounties.

Dua Two:

بِسْمِ اللهِ وَالصَّلاَةُ وَالسَّلاَمُ عَلٰى رَسُولِ اللهِ رَبِّ اغْفِرْ لِيْ ذُنُوْبِيْ وَافْتَحْ لِيْ أَبْوَابَ فَضْلِكَ

In the name of Allah Ta’ala. May peace and salutations be upon Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). O Allah Ta’ala, forgive for me my sins and open for me the doors of Your bounties.

Dua Three:

اَللّٰهُمَّ اعْصِمْنِيْ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيْمِ

O Allah Ta’ala! Protect me from the accursed Shaitaan.

2. Keep your heart attached to the musjid i.e. when leaving the musjid after one salaah, make the intention of coming to the musjid for the next salaah and await it with eagerness.

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال ألا أدلكم على ما يمحو الله به الخطايا ويرفع به الدرجات قالوا بلى يا رسول الله قال إسباغ الوضوء على المكاره وكثرة الخطا إلى المساجد وانتظار الصلاة بعد الصلاة فذلكم الرباط (صحيح مسلم، الرقم: 251)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) once asked the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu anhum), “Should I not inform you of such actions through which Allah Ta’ala will erase your sins and raise your ranks?” The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu anhum) replied, “Certainly inform us, O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)!” Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “Performing a complete wudhu despite difficulties, taking abundant steps in walking towards the masaajid and awaiting the next salaah after one salaah is performed. These actions resemble the action of those who protect the Islamic frontiers against the enemies of Islam (i.e. through these actions, one protects himself from the nafs and Shaitaan, just as those guarding the frontiers protect the Muslims against the enemies of Islam).”

3. Do not spend wealth from public funds for the adornment of the musjid. If one wishes, he may spend his own wealth to adorn the musjid, provided it is within the limits of Shari’ah.

عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ما أمرت بتشييد المساجد قال ابن عباس لتزخرفنها كما زخرفت اليهود والنصارى (سنن أبي داود، الرقم: 448)

Hazrat Ibnu Abbaas (radhiyallahu anhuma) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “I was not commanded to raise the structures of the musjid (without any need and just for beautification purposes).” Hazrat Ibnu Abbaas (radhiyallahu anhuma) mentioned, “(A time will come when) you will most certainly adorn and beautify the masaajid (beyond the limits of Shari’ah) as the Jews and Christians adorned and beautified their places of worship.”
