As Easy as 1,2,3: A Hajj and Umrah a Day!

Bismillah.

The Messenger of Allah [SAWS] said, “Whoever prays the dawn prayer (fajr) in a group and then sits and does dhikr until the sun rises, then prays two rak’as, shall have the like of the reward of a hajj and an ‘umra.”

Anas [RA] said, “The Prophet [SAWS] said: ‘Completely, completely, completely’”

[Tirmidhi]

First step

Pray Fajr in Jama’ah. The reward for the one who prays Fajr in Jama’ah is that of praying half the night (in Imam Muslim’s narration, praying Fajr in jama’ah has the reward of the entire night’s worship!).

Second step

Don’t rush out of the Masjid after the salah is over! Sit and remember Allah by making dhikr. Dhikr could be reading Quran (the best dhikr) or reading adhkaar found in authentic sunnah (www.makedua.com) or here.

Third step

Before leaving, pray two rak’ah of Doha prayer. It’s the charity for every joint in your body (hadith quoted below). It’s a means of forgiveness of sins:

“Whoever adheres to the Duha prayer shall have his sins forgiven, even if they are like the foam of the sea.”

[Tirmidhi].

1 + 2 + 3 = The reward of a Hajj and Umrah! Every day!

May Allah give us all the tawfeeq to implement this day-in and day-out ’till we meet Him, ameen.

Hadith of Doha Prayer

Abu Dharr [RA] reported: The Prophet [SAWS] said,

“In the morning, charity is due on every joint bone of the body of everyone of you. Every utterance of Allah’s Glorification (i.e., saying Subhan Allah) is an act of charity, and every utterance of His Praise (i.e., saying Al-hamdu lillah) is an act of charity and every utterance of declaration of His Greatness (i.e., saying La ilaha illAllah) is an act of charity; and enjoining M`aruf (good) is an act of charity, and forbidding Munkar (evil) is an act of charity, and two Rak`ah Duha prayers which one performs in the forenoon is equal to all this (in reward).”

[Muslim].

  3. Masha’Allah very good post.. May Allah bless us all with the drive to impliment it insha’Allah and not just add it to another “to-do” list. Jazak Allah Khair…

  4. As-salaamu-’alaikum.

    Is the Doha prayer after sunrise or aound 10 am [middle of time between sunrise and Zawaal [as the word forenoon fits the latter]?

  5. Some Q/A related to the post:

    – Does the Fajr prayer have to be performed in the masjid or can I pray at home in a jamat with my family?

    Allahu alam, it seems that its only for the masjid. However, if there some legitimate excuse that prevents a person from praying in the masjid, then this will apply for them as well insha Allah. This is according to Sh ibn Baz.

    – The Doha prayer – is performed anytime after sunrise and before dhur salat?

    Anytime after sunrise and before dhuhr salah.
