Virtuous deeds which will benefit on Siraat Bridge

The Beloved Rasool صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ has said: I saw strange matters one night (one of them was that) I saw one of my followers who was sometimes walking by dragging himself and sometimes crawling on the Siraat Bridge. In the meantime, the Durood [Salat] which he sent to me came. It made him stand up and he crossed the Siraat Bridge. (Al-Mu’jam-ul-Kabeer, vol. 25, pp. 282, Hadees 39)

It has been learnt that crossing the Siraat Bridge would be made easy for the one who recites Durood upon the Beloved Nabi صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ. Therefore we should recite Durood upon the Beloved Rasool صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ abundantly. Such more virtuous deeds have been mentioned in blessed Ahadees by the blessing of acting upon which اِنْ شَآءَ اللہ easiness on the Siraat Bridge would be attained.

1. Removing worry of Muslim

The Beloved Rasool صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ has said: The person who removes the worry of any Muslim, on the Judgement Day Allah Almighty will make for him two such branches of Noor on the Siraat Bridge by the light of which so many worlds will become bright which no one can count except Allah Almighty. (Al-Mu’jam-ul-Awsat, vol. 3, pp. 254, Hadees 4504)

2. Giving Sadaqah

The Beloved Rasool صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ has said: The person who gives Sadaqah in a proper manner in the world, he will cross the Siraat Bridge. (Hilya-tul-Awliya, vol. 3, pp. 256, Hadees 3874)

3. Entrustment and kind treatment with relatives

The Beloved Rasool صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ has said: Entrustment and Silah Rihmi [صلہ رِحْمِی] (good treatment with relatives) will be sent, they will stand on the right and left side of the Siraat Bridge. (Sahih Muslim, pp. 106, Hadees 329)

Regarding this blessed Hadees Mufti Ahmad Yar Khan Na’eemi رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ has said: It will be extremely high reverence for both these attributes as they will be made to stand on the right and the left of the Siraat Bridge for intercession and complaint; their intercession will bring salvation and their complaint will bring punishment. (Mirat-ul-Manajih, vol. 7, pp. 424)

4. Making recommendation for an act of goodness

The Beloved Rasool صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ has said: The person who goes to take the plea of his Muslim brother to the king or to get respite for a poor person, Allah Almighty will help him cross the Siraat Bridge on the day when people [people’s feet] will be slipping. (Majma’-uz-Zawaid, vol. 8, pp. 349, Hadees 13709)

5. Protecting the honour of a Muslim

Hakeem-ul-Ummat Mufti Ahmad Yar Khan Na’eemi رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ has said: The one who protects the honour of a Muslim who is being backbitten, an angel will cover him with its wings and will make him cross the Siraat Bridge so that the heat of the fire of Hell will not reach him. (Mirat-ul-Manajih, vol. 6, pp. 572)

6. Using Miswak

There are countless blessings of using Miswak. One of them is that it will help cross the Siraat Bridge at the speed of light. (Haashiya-tut-Tahtaawi ‘ala Maraqil Falah, pp. 69)

May Allah Almighty enable us to perform such virtuous deeds by virtue of which we may easily cross the Siraat Bridge!

Ya Ilahi jab chaloon tareek rah-e-pul Siraat

Aftab-e-Haashimi Noor-ul-Huda ka sath ho

More deeds which will benefit on the Siraat Bridge will be mentioned in the issue of the next month, اِنْ شَآءَ اللہ.
