Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymîn:

I warn my Muslim brothers against what some stupid people do when they narrate april jokes. This lie have they taken from the jews, the christians, fire-worshipers (Majûs) and other disbelievers.

Not only is this act a lie, which is in itself forbidden according to the Sharî’ah, it also involves imitating the disbelievers, which is forbidden. The prophet (sallâ Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Whoever imitates a people belongs to them.”

Shaykh-ul-Islâm Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullâh) said:

“Its chain of narration is good.”

The least one could say is that it is forbidden, even if it seemingly entails disbelief.

Together with these two sins, the Muslim becomes humiliated before his enemy. It is generally known that the one who is imitated boasts before the imitator and sees himself as being in front of him. The imitator thus becomes weak so that he imitates him. The believer thusly becomes degraded since he subjugates himself and follows the disbelievers.

The fourth sin is that this filthy lie is often about taking someone else’s money unjustly and scaring the Muslims. They maybe lie and tell the family that they will be having guests. As a result thereof they prepare a great meal and meat and the like. They might also lie and tell them horrifying news of a relative being run over by a car or the like. This is not allowed.

 

 

 

Whoever says ten times immediately after finishing the Fajr/Maghrib Prayer .

On the authority of Abu Dharr (radiAllahu anhu), that the Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) said –

“Whoever says ten times immediately after finishing the Fajr (Dawn) Payer, before moving from his place or talking to anyone,

“laa ilaaha illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu yuhyee wa yumeetu wa huwa alaa kulli shay’in qadeer – [ none has the right to be worshipped except Allaah alone having no partner, sovereignty is His and all praise is for Him and He brings life and He causes death and He has full power over everything,]”

ten good deeds will be recorded for him, ten sins will be eliminated from him, he will be upgraded ten degrees (in reward), he will be safeguarded from all kinds of harm all that day, he will be guarded against shaytan and no sin can overtake him on that day (and nullify his good deeds) except associating others in worship with Allaah. (At Tirmidhi no.3484 [5/515])

At-Tirmidhi commented on this hadeeth saying, “This is a hasan, saheeh hadeeth (i.e a good and authentic hadeeth)”.

Likewise it is an act of Sunnah to say dhikr ten times straight after Magrib salah too, according to a hadith related by Imaam Ahmad Hanbal (rahimahullah) on the authority of Umm Salamah (radiAllahu anha), hadith number 26430. Also stated in Sahih Ibn Hibban no. 2023.

§        عَنْ أَبِي ذَرٍّ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ:

§        “‏ مَنْ قَالَ فِي دُبُرِ صَلاَةِ الْفَجْرِ

o        وَهُوَ ثَانِي رِجْلَيْهِ

o        قَبْلَ أَنْ يَتَكَلَّمَ

§        لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ عَشْرَ مَرَّاتٍ

o        كُتِبَ لَهُ عَشْرُ حَسَنَاتٍ

o        وَمُحِيَ عَنْهُ عَشْرُ سَيِّئَاتٍ

o        وَرُفِعَ لَهُ عَشْرُ دَرَجَاتٍ

o        وَكَانَ يَوْمَهُ ذَلِكَ فِي حِرْزٍ مِنْ كُلِّ مَكْرُوهٍ

o        وَحَرْسٍ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ

o        وَلَمْ يَنْبَغِ لِذَنْبٍ أَنْ يُدْرِكَهُ فِي ذَلِكَ الْيَوْمِ إِلاَّ الشِّرْكَ بِاللَّهِ ‏”‏

رواه الترمذي 3474

§  Abu Dharr narrated that:  The Messenger of Allah () said:

§  “Whoever says at the end of every Fajr prayer,

o   while his feet are still folded,

o   before speaking:

§  ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, Alone without partner, to Him belongs all that exists, and to Him is the praise, He gives life and causes death, and He is powerful over all things, (Lā ilāha illallāh, wadahu lā sharīka lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-amdu, yuyī wa yumītu, wa huwa `alā kulli shay’in qadīr)’ ten times,

o   then ten good deeds shall be written for him,

o   ten evil deeds shall be wiped away from him,

o   ten degrees shall be raised up for him,

o   and he shall be in security all that day from every disliked thing,

o   and he shall be in protection from Shaitan,

o   and no sin will meet him or destroy him that day, except for associating partners with Allah.”

– Jami` at-Tirmidhi 3474, Authenticated by Al Albani as Hasan

 

§        أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ:

§        من قال دُبُرَ صلاةِ الغَداةِ :

o        لا إِلهَ إلا اللهُ وحدَه لا شرِيكَ لهُ ، له المُلْكُ ، و له الحمدُ ، يُحْيِي و يُميتُ ، بيدِه الخيرُ ، و هو على كلِّ شيءٍ قديرٌ مِائةَ مرةً ،

§        قبلَ أنْ يَثْنِيَ رِجلَيِه ،

§        كان يومئِذٍ من أفضلِ أهلِ الأرضِ عملًا ،

o        إلا مَن قال مِثلَ ما قال ، أو زادَ على ما قالَ

§  Before he unfolds his feet,

§  Then on that day he is from the best people on earth in terms of deeds,

o   Except who says like him, or says more than him
