Photoshopped or not, the above picture made my heart smile and feel all nice ‘n’ warm. Good words to live by and it’s a great idea to engrave/paint it on the walls so it’s right in front of everyone’s eyes as a reminder!
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
“When Allah wills good for the members of a household, He introduces kindness to them.”
[Narrated by Ahmad; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Silsilah al-Ahaadeeth al-Saheehah (3/219).]
2 easy ways to protect your household from Shaytan (request all your family members to do this inshaa’Allah):
1. Recite last 2 ayahs of Surat’l Baqarah for 3 nights.
- It was narrated from al-Nu’maan ibn Basheer (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allaah inscribed a book two thousand years before He created the heavens and the earth, from which the last two aayahs of Soorat al-Baqarah were revealed. If they are recited for three nights, no shaytaan (devil)will remain in the house). [Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2882. This hadeeth was classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 1799].
2. Reciting “Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wahdahu laa shareeka lah, lahu’l-mulk wa lahu’l-hamd wa huwa ‘ala kulli shay’in qadeer (There is no god except Allaah Alone with no partner or associate; His is the Sovereignty and His is the praise, and He is Able to do all things)” one hundred times.
- It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever says “Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wahdahu laa shareeka lah, lahu’l-mulk wa lahu’l-hamd wa huwa ‘ala kulli shay’in qadeer” one hundred times in the day, will have a reward equivalent to that of freeing ten slaves, one hundred hasanahs (good deeds) will be recorded for him, and one hundred sayi’ahs (bad deeds) will be erased from his record, and it will be protection for him from the Shaytaan for that day, until evening comes. No one could achieve any better than him except the one who does more than he did.” [narrated by al-Bukhaari, 31119; Muslim, 2691]
And Allah SWT knows best.
O Allah protect our homes from the Shayateen. Protect our family members and the families of those who are associated with us. Place between us mercy, compassion and kindness.
