of the Prophet |
It is reported by way of Abi Hurayrata that some of the
poor folk from among the emigrants came to the Messenger of Allah
and submitted: The wealthy have made off with
the high ranks and permanent bounties. They pray as we do, and they
fast as we do; however, they have excess wealth and personal
properties which they use to perform pilgrimage, to perform 'Umrah,
to perform jihãd, and to give in charity. He said "May I tell you
something by which you would reach those who proceeded you, overtake
those who succeeded you, and no one would be better than you except
for one that would have done the like of that which you have done?
They said: "Yes, O' Messenger of Allah, He said: "Make tasbeeh(128),
tahmeed, and takbeer, after each salãt 33 times". Abu Sãlih
said(129): Say Subhãna 'allãhi, 'al-hamdu lil-lãhi, and 'allãhu
(128)Tasbeeh is to say Subhãna 'allãhi; Tahmeed is to say 'Al-hamdu lillãhi; Takbeer is to say 'Allãhu 'akbaru.
(129)He is the tãbi`ee [one who met a companion of the Prophet believing in the Prophet and died that way] that reported this hadeeth.
