Let us revive a forgotten Sunnah
The Messenger of Allah said: ‘Whoever revives a Sunnah of mine, which people then act upon, will have a reward equivalent to that of those who act upon it, without that detracting from their reward in the slightest. And whoever introduces an innovation (Bid’ah) that is acted upon, will have a burden of sins equivalent to that of those who act upon it, without that detracting from the burden of those who act upon it in the slightest.’
Insha Alah we will begin together this series of reminding each other with one of the forgotten Sunun and later try to expose A Bid’ah (an innovation).
Well, let me begin with one Sunnah:
عن معاذ بن أنس رضي الله عنه أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال :
(مَنْ لَبِسَ ثَوْبًا فَقَالَ: الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي كَسَانِي هَذَا الثَّوْبَ وَرَزَقَنِيهِ مِنْ غَيْرِ حَوْلٍ مِنِّي وَلَا قُوَّةٍ غُفِرَ لَهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِنْ ذَنْبِهِ وَمَا تَأَخَّرَ )
رواه أبو داود (رقم/4023)
Narrated Mu’adh ibn Anas:
The Prophet (saws) said:
If anyone puts on a garment and says:
“Praise be to Allah Who has clothed me with this and provided me with it through no might and power on my part,” he will be forgiven his former and later sins.
