Day in the Life Of
Some things we have to do by the
order of Allah like...
Getting up early in the morning
When you get up early in the morning
you are supposed to say this:
Alhamdu lillahilladhi ahyana ba'da
ma amatana wa ilaihinnushur.
means: Thanks and praises
to Allah who brought us to life after having given us death
and to him we shall have to return.
And don't forget to pray Fajr! And wash your face once you wake
Entering and coming out of the
While entering the bathroom
make sure to put you left foot in first and
inni a'oodhu bika minal khubthi wal khaba'ith.
means O Allah! I seek
refuge with you from the bad and evil things. When we are in the
bathroom we shouldn't talk. Come out and put your right
foot out first and say the following supplication:
Ghufranaka. Alhamdu lillahilladhi
adhaba anniladha wa'afani.
means I ask for your forgiveness.
Thanks and praises to Allah who removed from me
the suffering and gave me relief.
How to do wudoo
Wash your hands three times, then
rinse your mouth three times with
right hand. Rinse your nose three
times with left hand. Then wash your
face three times. Then wash your
forearms up to elbows three times.
After that wipe your head with water
once. Insert your index fingers in
your ear holes, then wipe the back
of your ears with thumb and front of
your ears with index fingers. Now
in the end wash your feet and rub your
toes with you little fingers to make
sure that water reaches between
them. During this whole process make
sure not to waste water. There is
a saying of the prophet that even
if you are standing on the banks of the
river, do not waste any water. After
completing wudoo you should say:
Ash-hadu alla illallh wa ash-hadu
anna Muhammadan abduhu wa rasuluhu.
Going to the Mosque
When you leave the house you should
tawak-kaltu alallah wa lahaula wa la quwwata illah billah.
means: In the name of Allah. I put my trust in Allah and there
is no strength nor power except Allah. When you are late for prayer
some run towards the Masjid. But we should not do that
because Allah's Messenger has said: When you hear the Iqamah,
proceed to offer the prayer with calmness and solemnity and do
not make haste. Pray whatever
you are able to pray and complete what ever you have
missed. When you enter the Masjid put your right foot in first
wassalatu wassalamu ala rasulilah. Allahummaftahli abwaba
the name of Allah and peace and blessings be upon the
Messenger of Allah. O Allah! Open for me the doors of your mercy.
Eating at the table
Let's say I was eating a melon and
I forgot to say Bismillah our Prophet
has given us guidance on all aspects
of life. He taught us that if somebody
forgot to say Bismillah before starting
the meal he should say: Bismillah
awwalahu wa akhirahu. (I start in
the name of Allah at the beginning and
end. You should also eat with your
right hand and from what's in front of
you. Also when you have food in your
mouth we must not talk, that is bad manners. After your done eating
you should say:
illahilladhi at'amani hadhatta
ama wa razaqanihi, min ghairi haulim,-minni wa la quwwatin.
