Paris Terrorist Attacks
The Mississippi Muslim Association strongly condemns the tragic terrorist attacks that took place in Paris, France on Nov 13th, 2015. We offer our sincere condolences and pray for the families of the victims.
Juwairiyah bint Al-Harith (RadhiAllahu ‘anha) reported, the Mother of the Believers: The Prophet ﷺ came out from my apartment in the morning as I was busy in performing the dawn prayer. He ﷺ came back in the forenoon and found me sitting there.
The Prophet ﷺ said, “Are you still in the same position as I left you.” I replied in the affirmative. Thereupon the Prophet ﷺ said,
“I recited four words three times after I had left you. If these are to be weighed against all you have recited since morning, these will be heavier. These are:
سُبْحَانَ اللهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ: عَدَدَ خَلْقِهِ وَرِضَا نَفْسِهِ، وَزِنَةَ عَرْشِهِ وَمِدَادَ كَلِمَاتِهِ
Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi, `adada khalqihi, wa rida nafsihi, wa zinatah `arshihi, wa midada kalimatihi
[Allah is free from imperfection and I begin with His praise, as many times as the number of His creatures, in accordance with His Good Pleasure, equal to the weight of His Throne and equal to the ink that may be used in recording the words (for His Praise)].”
[Sahih Muslim – Book035 – Hadith6575]
