Ahlan wa sahlan Ya Ramadhan 1442 Hijri


Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah.

How many of us had been praying 'Allahumma balighna Ramadhan'...and it's here, we have embraced it yet again?

It's 3rd Ramadhan 1442 Hijri already. I have read 2 juz of the Quran so far. I was out shopping for Mabkhara, bukhoor and some Arabia perfumes, so I missed the Book.

Anyway, let's try to practise as many sunnah as possible. I have been meaning to document two new selawat I learned on Nabawi TV recently. Do come and check this posting again later.

Meantime, I pray Allah would be kind to grant us Laylatul Qadar this year and help us stay loyal to the Quran beyond Ramadhan. 
Aamiin Allahumma Aamiin.

Wasalamualaikum warahmatullah.

As promised here are the two selawat as taught by Habib Quraisy Baharun, a prominent Indonesian dai'e on Nabawi TV on 5th April 2021 at a weekly majlis known as 'Jalsah Itsnain Majelis Rasulullah' in West Java.

The first selawat was originally taught by Habib Ali bin Abdul Rahman Al Mahsyur. It is known to be highly effective for those who have passed away so that by the grace of Rasulullah salallah alaihi wasalam, the mayyit (the deceased) would be pardoned even if he/she was already destined for Jahannam, or if the mayyit was in a better position than that, Allah would improve his/her conditions and elevate his/her rank. 

I do not have it in Arabic script, so please refer to the original recording of the majlis at the link provided below. Go to minute 1:27:27 and please ask someone to help with the translation.


Allahumma solli wa sallim 
wa baarik wa sharrif wa karrim
ala Sayidina Muhammad
an Nabiyil kaamil
wa 'ala aalihi solatan
laa niha ya talaha
kama la niha yata
lika maa lika
wa 'adada kamaa lih

The second selawat, according to Habib Quraisy Harun, is attributed to [unnamed] solehin who first obtained it through a dream. Reciting this selawat for just ten times is equivalent to reciting more than 100,000 times selawat.

For your reference, check the audio recording at minute 1:30:39.


Allahumma solli wa sallim wa baarik
ala Sayidina Muhammad
wa 'ala alihi
ada da kama lika
wa kama yalii ku
bi kamaa lih

Du'a during i'tidal and post-solah as practised by Rasulullah salallah alaihi wasalam


Assalamualaikum warahmatullah,

I am delighted to be here and share this lesson I picked up last Feb. By the way, I hope those who intended to recite 7000 selawat, the specific selawat as recommended by Habib Umar bin Hafiz for Shaaban, have managed to complete the task.

I am grateful for the simple pleasures of life like being able to complete the said task in time for Nisfu Shaaban and being a top fan of Masjid An-Nur's FB page, Alhamdulillah. You should be happy that I am a top fan there LOL, else I would not have come across this precious du'a and record it here for our benefit bi-iznillah. Well, this is for those who have not heard of it before or those who are yet to memorize it. 

Ustaz Hafiz (pic below) related some heartwarming stories of the special relationship between Prophet Muhammad salallah alaihi wasalam and Abdullah ibn Abbas. As he did so, he recalled a du'a which the Prophet salallah alaihi wasalam would customarily recite during i'tidal and after solah. It is a very good du'a to strengthen one's aqidah, as it makes one reaffirms the supreme might of Allah against any makhluk who may appear powerful or threatening in the eyes of man.  

So I checked, this could be traced to a hadith recorded by Al Bukhari and Muslim.

Allahumma laa maani'a
lima a'thoita
wala mu'tia
lima mana'ta
wala yan fa'uu
zal jaddi
minkal jadd

The English translation, as shared on is as follows:

"O Allah there is none
who can withhold
what You give
and none may give what You have withheld
and the might of the mighty person
cannot benefit him
against You."

Let's put it to practice.
La quwwata illah billah.
Allahumma bal lighna Ramadhan.

I'd like to encourage the Malay speaking visitors to this blog to peruse the mosque's FB and check out his tausiyah.
