1     The person who removes the worry of any of my Ummati [followers].

2     The one who revives my Sunnah.

3     The one who recites Salat upon me abundantly.

Who will be under the shade of Your ‘Arsh on the day when there will be no other shade except it?’ Allah Almighty said, ‘O Musa! The people who inquire after the patients, go with a funeral procession and express condolences to the person whose child has passed away.’ (Tamheed-ul-Farsh lis-Suyuti, pp. 16)

Good deeds which will earn you the shade of ‘Arsh

Due to grinding grain using a hand-mill, blisters had appeared on the blessed hands of Khatoon-e-Jannat, Sayyidatuna Fatima-tuz-Zahra رَضِیَ اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا, causing her pain. Once she went in the blessed court of the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم in order to request for a servant but she could not meet the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم; however, Sayyidatuna Fatima-tuz-Zahra رَضِیَ اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا met Sayyidatuna ‘Aaishah رَضِیَ اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا and conveyed to her the purpose of her arrival. When the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم came home, Sayyidatuna ‘Aaishah رَضِیَ اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا informed him about the arrival of Sayyidatuna Fatima-tuz-Zahra رَضِیَ اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا. The Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم visited his beloved daughter and said, ‘Should I not tell you about such a [blessed] act which is better than what you have asked me for? When you lie down for sleeping, recite ‘سُبْحٰنَ اللّٰە’ 33 times, ‘اَلْحَمْدُ لِلّٰە’ 33 times, and ‘اللّٰہُ اَکْبَر’ 34 times. This is better for you than a servant.’ (Sahih Bukhari, vol. 1, pp. 536, Hadees 3705)

Commenting on the aforementioned blessed Hadees mentioning blessed Tasbih being better than the servant, Sayyiduna ‘Allamah Badruddin Mahmood ‘Ayni رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه said, ‘Either Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ grants such a [great] strength to the reciter of this Tasbih that his difficult pieces of work become easy and he does not need a servant or the Hereafter reward of this Tasbih is better than the benefit of the service of servant in this world.’ (‘Umda-tul-Qaari, vol. 14, pp. 374, Taht-al-Hadees 5361)

Dear Islamic brothers! The blessed Tasbih mentioned in the blessed Hadees by the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is called “Tasbih-e-Fatimah رَضِیَ اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا”. To further highlight its blessings and rewards, read a blessed saying of the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم, ‘There are two such habits whoever Muslim will adopt them for good will enter Jannah [whereas] both [acts] are easy but a little number of people act upon them. One should recite ‘سُبْحٰنَ اللّٰە’, ‘اَلْحَمْدُ لِلّٰە’ and ‘اللّٰہُ اَکْبَر’ 10 times each after every Salah, they are 150 [as recited] by the tongue and 1500 on the Meezan [scale]. When you lie down on your bed, recite ‘اللّٰہُ اَکْبَر’ 34 times, ‘اَلْحَمْدُ لِلّٰە’ 33 times, and ‘سُبْحٰنَ اللّٰە’ 33 times. They are 100 [as recited] by the tongue and 1000 on the Meezan [scale].’ (Attargheeb Wattarheeb, vol. 1, pp. 233, Raqm 5)

Shaykh-e-Tareeqat, Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat دَامَـتْ بَرَكَاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَالِـيَـه has bestowed a method of becoming righteous upon Ummat-e-Muslimah, namely ‘Madani In’amaat’. One of its Madani In’aam is as follows:

“Have you recited Aayat-ul-Kursi, Surah Al-Ikhlas and Tasbih-e-Fatimah رَضِیَ اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا today at least once after each Salah and before sleeping? Moreover, have you recited or listened to Surah Al-Mulk in the night.”

Instead of spending our time in unnecessary conversation and using social media pointlessly etc., if we develop a habit of reciting these blessed Awraad (invocations) along with other virtuous deeds for attaining reward and pleasure of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ then by the mercy of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ, we may also get bountiful ‘Hereafter reward’ اِنْ شَـآءَ اللّٰہ  عَزَّوَجَلَّ in addition to the worldly benefits.
