R Seal of Rasoolullah(Sal)4

Kissing the Thumbs

الحمد للّٰه الذي نورعيون المسلمين بنورعين اعيان المرسلين، والصّلاة والسلام علي نورالعيون سرورالقلب المحزون محمد نالرفيع ذكره في الصلاة والاذان، والجيب اسمه عند اھل الايمان، وعلى اٰله وصحبه والمشروحة صدورھم لجلال اسراره والمفتوحة عيونھم بجمال انواره، واشھد ان لاالٰه الا اللّٰه وحده لاشريك له، وان محمّدا عبده ورسوله بالھدى ودين الحق ارسله صلى اللّٰه تعالٰى عليه وعلٰى اٰله وصحبه اجمعين، وعلينا معھم وبھم ولھم يا ارحم الراحمين اٰمين


When hearing the Muazzin proclaim, "Ash'hadu anna Muhammad ar­-Rasoolullah" it is preferred (Mustahab) to kiss the two thumbs or the shahaadat finger and place them on the eyes. There are many spiritual, religious and worldly benefits associated to this, as well as numerous Ahadith documenting its practice. Doing so is even practiced by the Sahaaba, and Muslims everywhere perform it in the belief that it is Mustahab. It is stated in the book, Salaat al-Mas'oodi:

روي عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم انه قال من سمع اسمي في الاذان ووضع ابھاميه على عينيه فانا طالبه في صفوف القيمه و قائده الى الجنه

''The Noble Messenger is reported to have said, "On the Day of Qiyaamat, I shall search for the person who used to place his thumbs on his eyes when hearing my name during the Adhaan. I shall lead him into Jannat." [Salat al-Mas'oodi, Vol 2, Chapter 20]

Allama Ismail Haqqi Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho writes under the verse 58 of Surah al Maidah,

وضعف تقبيل ظفرى ابهاميه مع مسبحتيه والمسح على عينيه عند قوله محمد رسول الله لانه لم يثبت فى الحديث المرفوع لكن المحدثين اتفقوا على ان الحديث الضعيف يجوز العمل به فى الترغيب والترهيب

"Kissing the nails of the thumbs and the shahadat finger when saying "Muhammad ar­-Rasoolullah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam has been classified as weak (dhaeef) because it is not proven from a marfoo' Hadith. However, Muhadditheen have agreed that to act upon a dhaeef Hadith to incline people towards deeds and instill fear within them is permitted."[Tafseer Rooh al-Bayaan, Vol 3, Page 282]

Shaami states,

يستحب أن يقال عند سماع الأولى من الشهادة : صلى الله عليك يا رسول الله ، وعند الثانية منها : قرت عيني بك يا رسول الله ، ثم يقول : اللهم متعني بالسمع والبصر بعد وضع ظفري الإبهامين على العينين فإنه عليه السلام يكون قائدا له إلى الجنة ، كذا في كنز العباد . قهستاني ، ونحوه في الفتاوى الصوفية . وفي كتاب الفردوس من قبل ظفري إبهامه عند سماع أشهد أن محمدا رسول الله في الأذان أنا قائده ومدخله في صفوف الجنة وتمامه في حواشي البحر للرملي

"On the testimony (of Prophethood) in Adhaan, it is Mustahab to say "Sallallaahu Alaika Ya Rasoolallah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam on the first and "Quratu Aini bika Ya RasoolAllah SubHanuhu wa Ta'ala on the second. Then, place the nails of your thumbs on your eyes and say, "Allahumma Matti'ni bis-Sam'i wal-Basr." The Holy Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam will lead the person who does this into Jannat. The same has been documented by Kanzul­lbaad, Qohistaani and in Fataawa Soofia. Kitaabul-Firdaus states that the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam has said, I shall lead into Jannat the person who kisses his thumbnails when hearing "Ash'hadu anna Muhammad ar-Rasoolullah. I will also place him amongst the ranks of the inmates of Janna'. The complete discussion on this has been given in the marginal notes on Bahr ar-Raaiq of Ramli." [Radd al Muh'tar, Baab al-Adhan, Vol. 3, Page 233]

This extract has given the reference of 5 books Kanz al-Ibaad, Fataawa Soofia, Kitaab al-Firdaus, Qohistaani and the marginal notes on Bahr ar-Raaiq. All of them have ruled this practice to be Mustahab.

The Blessed Sandal

   

There is not a civilization that has loved and celebrated its leader as Islamic civilization has loved and celebrated its Prophet, our master Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace). Love is theThe Prophet Muhammad's Sall Allahu 'alaihi wa  Aalihi wa sallim Sandal

strongest of all human attachments, and is the greatest thing that distinguishes the relationship of Muslims with their Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), who said, “None of you [truly] believes until I am more beloved to him than his very self, wealth, and all people.”

Motivated by this love, as well as by an understanding of the immense importance of the personal example of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), the Muslim community recorded and preserved his entire life in the most exacting detail. The Islamic scholars did not limit their attention to the moral and legal example of the Prophet alone (Allah bless him and give him peace). Rather, they also focused on his daily life, like his habits of eating, drinking, and sleeping, as well as other matters that do not have immediate legal implications. From that time, until this present day, Muslims have sought to imitate the example of their Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) in all its details, unless they were of the particular matters that Allah Most High chose only for him.

The Prophet’s (Allah bless him and give him peace) external, physical appearance was also among the matters that Muslims paid great attention to, as were his habits of dress. Among the matters of external appearance, the Prophet’s noble sandals received particular attention, perhaps because of what his followers felt of utmost love and humility for the person of their beloved Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), such that they saw themselves as less than his sandals.

The Companions and the Noble Sandals

The attention given to the noble sandals is not an innovated matter. Rather, the first generations, from the Companions of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), were the first to give them attention and importance, such that some of them were known to have distinguished themselves with serving the noble sandals. It has been reported by Ibn Sa`d that Anas (Allah be well pleased with him) was the keeper of the sandals of the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace).

Al Hamdulillahi Rabbil ‘Aalameen  Allahumma salli wa sallim ‘alaa Sayyidul Mursaleen,  Sayyidinaa wa Mawlaanaa Muhammadin, Khatimun Nabiyyeen wa Imaamil Muttaqeena wa Qaaidil Ghurril Muhaajjaleen wa Shafi’il Mudhnibeena  Rasuli Rabbal ‘Aalameen, wa Hadi ila Siratul Mustaqim, wa ‘Alaa Aalihi wa Ashabihi wa Awliyaa-ihi ajma’eena wa Sallima tasliman kathiran kathira, Ya Khayrun Naasireen,  Al Fatihah, Wa ba’d

Wa Qal Allahu ta ‘Allahu ta ‘ala fee Kalaamihi Qadim ba’da Authu Billahi min ash shaytanir rajim. Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

لَقَدْ مَنَّ اللَّهُ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ إِذْ بَعَثَ فِيهِمْ رَسُولًا مِنْ أَنْفُسِهِمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِهِ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَإِنْ كَانُوا مِنْ قَبْلُ لَفِي ضَلَالٍ مُبِينٍ

[٣:١٦٤]

هُوَ الَّذِي بَعَثَ فِي الْأُمِّيِّينَ رَسُولًا مِنْهُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِهِ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَإِنْ كَانُوا مِنْ قَبْلُ لَفِي ضَلَالٍ مُبِينٍ

[٦٢:٢]

رَبَّنَا وَابْعَثْ فِيهِمْ رَسُولًا مِنْهُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِكَ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ ۚ إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ

[٢:١٢٩]

Allah did confer a great favor on the believers when He sent among them a messenger from among themselves, reciting unto them the Signs of Allah, purifying  them, and instructing them in Scripture and Wisdom, while, before that, they had been in manifest error.  Suratul Ali Imran [3] 164th ayah.

It is He Who has sent amongst the Unlettered a messenger from among themselves, to recite to them His ayaah, to purify them, and to instruct them in the Book [al Qur’an Majid] and Wisdom [Hikmah, the Ahkam of Islam exemplified in the Sunnah],- although they had been, before, in manifest error;-  Suratul Jumu’ah [62] 2nd ayah

“Our Lord! Send amongst them a Messenger of their own, who shall rehearse Thy Signs to them and instruct them in scripture and wisdom, and sanctify them: For Thou art the Exalted in Might, the Wise.”  Suratul Al Baqara [2] Ayah 129

Allahu Subhanahu wa ta ‘ala has blessed the believers with the greatest ni’mah. He Subhana Hu has sent us a Guide to the Straight Path.  We have been blessed with a Guide to the straight path who in reality is the Siratul Mustaqim.  The Beloved of Allahu ta ‘ala is the al Hadi ilaa Siratul Mustaqim and he  Sall Allahu ‘alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallim  is  Siratul Mustaqim.

Imam at Tabari Rahimahullah in his Tafsir commenting on  the 164th ayah of Suratul Aali Imran  Mentions that Allahu ta ‘ala is alluding to the Sunnah of the Beloved Master Sall Allahu ‘alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallim when he mentions that His beloved Sall Allahu ‘alaihi wa Aalihi wa sallim would;

  1. Recite unto them the Ayah of Allahu ta ‘ala [tilaawat]
  2. Wa Yuzakkihim , and purify them {Tazkiyyatun Nafs]
  3. Wa Yu’allimuhumul Kitaab, and teach them the Book [Holy Qur’an Majid and its’ explanation
  4. Wal Hikmah, and the Hikmah, the correct manner of applying what is found in the Book of Allahu ta ‘ala, namely the Sunnah of the Holy Last messenger Sayyidinaa Muhammad al Mustafa Sall Allahu  ‘alaihi wa Aalihi wa sallim.

Contrary to the rantings of detractors, our Beloved Nabiyyul Karim Sall Allahu ‘alaihi wa Aalihi wa sallim, has been commissioned, given a clear mandate and the supreme authority, by The Lawgiver azza wa jalla, to impart to us all that the Guidance contains.  One of the Names of Al Qur’an Majid is al Huda, and Nabiy ul Adhim Sall Allahu ‘alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallim is al Hadi, he Sall Allahu ‘alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallim is our guide and Muhdi, the one who is himself divinely guided in all his affairs.  This forms the basis of our belief and acceptance of the supreme authority of our Master Muhammad Sall ‘Allahu ‘alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallim.
