Islamic Information Center: Hi all readers! Now I will explain the four important messages of Prophet Muhammad. The four important messages are like precious pearls. Someone who can practice it will get a lot of huge benefits.
I need to say here, that in fact the four messages of Prophet Muhammad were messages to Ali bin Abi Talib. But we as a people he must also practice it.
Important Messages of Prophet Muhammad About Halal Living and Halal Food
Ali bin Abi Talib said, “Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam once called me. I am only with him in his house. He then said to me;
“O Ali! You are in my mind like Aaron’s position in the mind of Musa aih alaihi as-Salaam, it’s just that there is no Prophet after me. Today I will have the will of your ship. If you look after it, then you will live a noble life, you will die martyrdom, and Allah will raise you up as someone who is very religious.”
“O Ali! Whoever eats halal food, his religion will be clean, his heart will be smooth, and no veil will cover his prayer.”
“O Ali! Whoever eats food that is not clearly halal and unlawful, then his religion will not be clear and his heart will be dark. Whoever eats unclean food, then his heart will die, his religion is light, his faith will be weak, Allah will obstruct his prayer, and his worship will be few.”
“O Ali! If Allah is angry with someone, then He will give him sustenance in the form of illicit assets. If Allah’s anger reaches him, then Allah would assign Satan to congratulate him, who would accompany him, occupy him with world affairs over religious affairs, facilitate world affairs for him, and say, “Allah is Forgiving, Most Merciful.”
“O Ali! It is not someone who goes by to look for ill-gotten property unless Satan will become his friend. He did not go by riding a vehicle unless Satan became the figure behind him. There is no one who has accumulated ill-gotten property unless Satan has eaten it. It is not someone who forgets to mention the name of Allah when he has sex (with his wife) unless Satan will accompany him in his child. That is the purpose of the word of Allah Ta’ala;
… وَشَارِكۡهُمۡ فِي ٱلۡأَمۡوَٰلِ وَٱلۡأَوۡلَٰدِ وَعِدۡهُمۡۚ …
…and share with them in wealth and children, and hold out promises to them… (Al-Isra’ ; 64).
“O Ali! Allah Ta’ala does not accept prayers without ablution and alms from unclean property.”
“O Ali! A believer always increases in his religion while he does not eat illicit goods. Whoever leaves people who understand the teachings of religion, then his heart will die and be blind so that he cannot obey Allah Ta’ala.”
“O Ali! Whoever has read Quran but he does not justify anything that is lawful and does not forbid anything that is haram, then he is among those who dispose of the Book of Allah (Quran) behind their backs.”
Important Message of Prophet Muhammad About Perfection of Prayer and Ablution
“O Ali, pay attention to the perfection of ablution! The truth is that it is part of faith. If you have fluency, then don’t overdo it in using water! If you have finished ablution then read, “Innaa anzalnaahu fii lailati al-Qadr,” up to ten times after washing both feet, then Allah will eliminate your distress.”
“O Ali! If you have finished ablution, then take water and wipe it on your neck with your hands and say;
سُبْحَانَكَ اَللَّهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لآ إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ وَحْدَكَ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَكَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوْبُ إِلَيْكَ
O Allah, by Your praise I testify that there is no god but You who is One and there is no ally for You. I ask you forgiveness and repent to you.
Then look at the earth and say;
أَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمّداً عَبْدُكَ وَرَسُوْلُكَ
I testify that Muhammad is Your servant and Your messenger.
Indeed, the person who says this will forgive all of his small sins and all his great sins.”
“O Ali! Surely the angels ask forgiveness for humans as long as they are in a holy state and have no hadats.”
“O Ali! Whoever takes a bath on Friday, Allah will forgive the sins between Friday one and another Friday, and make it a reward in his grave and become a heavy practice on the scale of his practice.”
“O Ali! You have to use siwak. In it there are twenty-four goodness in religious affairs and body health.”
“O Ali! You have to pray (salat) at all times. Indeed, it is the basis of all goodness and the foundation of all worship.”
“O Ali! Jibril hoped that Adam’s children would have seven circumstances; pray five times with the imam, sit with people who understand religion, visit sick people, deliver people who have died, give water, reconcile two people who are at odds, glorify neighbors and orphans. Take care of that!”
“O Ali! Pray at night even though it’s like milking sheep’s milk. People who pray at night are the ones whose faces are most beautiful.”
“O Ali! If you have done takbir for prayer, then spread your fingers and raise your hands in front of your shoulders. If you have done takbir, then place your right hand on your left hand under your navel! If you do bow, then place your hands on your knees and spread your fingers!”
“O Ali! Pray in congregation! Indeed, it is with Allah as your way to do Hajj and Umra. There is no one who tries to pray in congregation except those who believe that have been loved by Allah and are not people who do not pray the congregation except the hypocrites who have been hated by Allah.”
“O Ali! The most beloved of Allah is the servant who prostrated and said in his prostration, “O my Lord, in fact I have behaved wrongfully to myself, so forgive my sins. Surely no one forgives all sins except only You.”
Important Message of Prophet Muhammad About Alms
Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said;
“O Ali! Indeed, Allah Ta’ala’s lovers did not get the breadth of Allah’s mercy and His pleasure because of the many worship, but they got it because of generosity and regarded the world as something low. “
“O Ali! The generous person is close to God, close to His mercy, and far from His torment. Whereas the stingy person is far from God, far from His mercy, and close to His torment. “
“O Ali! I have seen the writings above Heaven’s door,” You are forbidden from all stingy people, those who are disobedient to both parents and slanderers. “
“O Ali! When God has finished creating Heaven, he (Heaven) says, “O my Lord, what have you created me for?” Allah said, “For all generous people and those who fear.” He (Heaven) says, “I have been willing.” He (Hell) said, “O my Lord, for what have you created me?” Allah said, “For all stingy people and arrogant people.” He (Hell) said, “I get both.”
“O Ali! Whoever opposes his desires, Heaven is his residence. Whoever obeys his desires, then Jahannam Hell is his residence.”
“O Ali! Whoever feeds a Muslim with a good heart, Allah will record one million good for him, erase one million prayers from him, and raise a thousand degrees.”
“O Ali! Love something for your brother as you love something for yourself.”
“O Ali! Look for good when your face is happy! Greet guests! Indeed, he came to a people, and the sustenance of people came down with him. If he goes home, then he comes out carrying the sins of the owner of the house and throwing his sins into the sea.”
“O Ali! Angels do not enter the house where images, statues, or people are rebellious to their parents, or [into] a house that is not entered by guests.”
“O Ali! Do good even though you are with low people! “Ali said,” Who are the lowly people, O Messenger of Allah? “He replied,” The person who, if advised, does not accept it (advice). If he forbids (someone) from doing something, then he does not pay attention to his prohibitions and does not pay attention to what he has said and what has been said to him.”
“O Ali! Alms which is carried out clandestinely can extinguish the wrath of Allah, can bring many blessings and blessings. Give alms in the morning! Indeed, the disaster appeared before coming in the morning and then the decision was returned to the air.”
Important Messages of Prophet Muhammad About Prayer, Istighfar, Quran, and Dhikr
Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said;
“O Ali! You must pray at the time between the call to prayer and iqamah because actually it will not be rejected.”
“O Ali! If you pray, then raise your hands right in front of your chest and do not raise them above your head. You must signal Allah Ta’la with the index finger of your right hand.”
“O Ali! You may not increase your voice to read and pray when people are praying (salat), because that can damage their prayer (salat).”
“O Ali! Whoever reads the sentence dhikr to Allah before dawn, before the sun rises, and before sunset, then Allah will be ashamed to torture him with Hell fire.”
“O Ali! If you have finished praying, then sit at your place until the sun rises. Indeed, Allah will record the reward of the Hajj, Umrah, or free the slaves, or give charity as much as a thousand Dinars to the person who sits in his place.”
“O Ali! Whoever utters this sentence up to twenty-five times a day, then Allah will record him (him) as one of his lovers;
أَسْتَغْفِرُ اللَّهَ الْعَظِيْمَ لِيْ وَلِوَالِدَيَّ وَلِجَمِيْعِ الْمُسْلِمِيْنَ وَالْمُسْلِمَاتِ وَالْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ الْأَحْيَاءِ مِنْهُمْ وَالْأَمْوَاتِ
I ask Allah for forgiveness, the Supreme Lord, for myself, my parents, all Muslim men and all Muslim women, all men of faith and all women of faith, both those who live and those who die.
“O Ali! Whoever pronounces this sentence every day, Allah will forgive him;
لاَ إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ قَبْلَ كُلِّ أَحَدٍ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ بَعْدَ كُلِّ أَحَدٍ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ يَبْقَى رَبُّنَا وَيَفْنَى كُلُّ أَحَدٍ لَمْ يَبْقَى مَلَكٌ فِيْ السَّمَاوَاتِ
There is no god but Allah before everything exists. There is no god but Allah after all is there. There is no God but Allah. Our Lord is eternal and all will disappear. There are no kings in all the heavens. “
“O Ali! Whoever pronounces this sentence every day;
اَللَّهَمَّ بَارِكْ لِيْ فِيْ الْمَوْتِ وَفِيْمَا بَعْدَ الْمَوْتِ
O Allah, bless me when I am dead and in a state of death.
So, Allah will not count whatever he has done in the world. Whoever makes a takbir sentence (اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ) up to one hundred times before sunrise and a hundred times before sunrise, then Allah will record the reward of one hundred worship experts, one hundred people who strive in Allah Ta’ala. Whoever reads the prayer to me up to one hundred times a day, then he has the right to get my intercession. Increasing reading istighfar (asking forgiveness of Allah) is the fortress of those who repent from Hell.
All Readers! Those are the four important messages of Prophet Muhammad. Hopefully we can implement these messages. Amen!
See you again!
