Imam Nawawi's Inspiring Reminder.

Recommended Posts

Assalam alaikum,

Kindly permit me to share with you the following Inspiring reminder from Imam an-Nawawi, may Allah sunctify his secret, as contained in his "Al-Maqaasid". It  reads:--


   "One reaches Allah Most High by repenting form all things, unlawful or offensive; seeking sacred knowledge in accordance with one's needs, maintaining ritual purity; performing the obligatory prayers in the first of their time and in congragation, including the Sunnah prayers that correspond to each of the obligatory prayers; adhering to the 8 raka'ats of the midmorning prayer (Duha) and the 6 raka'ats after the sunset prayer and before the night prayer; performing the night prayer (tahajjud) after awaking from one's sleep; fulfilling the witr prayer; fasting on Mondays and Thursdays and on the 3 days of the full moon- ie the 13th, 14th and 15th of the lunar month- and also the days of the year in which fasting is recommended; reciting the Qur'an with the heart's presence coupled with reflection upon its meanings;......


frequently asking forgiveness of Allah (Istighfar); maintaining prayers and blessings [salat ala Nabiyy] upon the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam; and finally, adhering to the meritorious invocations of the morning and evening that have come to us from the Sunnah (adhkaar as-sabaah wa al-masa)".
