Adh-dhamAllahu ujurana wa ujurakum…
Our heartfelt condolences to our Imam (AJTFS) on this day…as it comes in the ziarat of the Prophet on Saturdays (http://www.duas.org/WeeklyZiyarat/saturday_z.htm):
‘because the misery has increased, since revelation (Wahi) has been cut off, and we lost you.’
Imam Ali (AS) spent this entire day repeating either ‘Inn-Allaha wa malaaikatahu yuS-Salluna A’lan Nabi,,,’or salawat.
Let us try to present our beloved Prophet with a small gift, after all, he was single-handedly responsible for showing us the way to salvation, as we see in the same ziarat:
‘(All) praise is for Allah (only) who saved us through you from the polytheism and going astray.’
For his Holy Soul, let us please recite a Sura Fatiha, 3 Sura Tawheed and 5 Salawat.
Also, let us try and do one Khatma of the Holy Quran, and dedicate the thawaab to him. Please reply if you are willing to participate in this cause, and InshaAllah we can have atleast one complete recitation guaranteed. Please reply with your name(s) and a sipara number(s) can be assigned to you. To make it manageable, please let us ave commitments for whole siparas rather than parts. If possible, it would be ideal if this could be accomplished tonight, but atleast over the next 2-3 days we should try and finish.
