The Reward for Reaching the Opening Takbir in the Congregational Prayer for Forty Days

مَنْ صَلَّى لِلهِ أَرْبَعِيْنَ يَوْمًا فِي جَمَاعَةٍ يُدْرِكُ التَّكْبِيْرَةَ الأُوْلَى كُتِبَتْ لَهُ بَرَاءَتَانِ: بَرَاءَةٌ مِنَ النَّارِ وَبَرَاءَةٌ مِنَ النِّفَاقِ


From Anas, may Allaah be pleased with him, that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, “Whoever prays with the congregation reaching the opening takbir for forty days [sincerely] for [the sake of] Allaah, two types of freedom are written for him: freedom from the Fire, and freedom from hypocrisy.”

Al-Albaani when told about a visit to Spain …

Translated by Ahmed Abu Turaab

As-Sadhaan mentioned that, “Shaikh Esaam Haadi, may Allaah the Most High protect him, said, ‘When I came back from Spain I spoke to the Shaikh about the condition of the Muslims there. And from the things that I told him about was the justice the Muslims receive in the lands of kufr in terms of freedom in their worship and [the freedom] to gather. Such that, for example, they can make a request to the municipality to [allow them to] pray the Eed prayer in an open place outside [musalla], [as a result of which] the municipality will prepare a place for them and send a patrol officer to facilitate their parking and passing safely, and things such as this.

So the Shaikh started crying and said, “Allaahu Akbar. The Muslims receive justice and freedom in the lands of kufr which they don’t even get in the lands of Islaam! So Allaah’s Aid is sought, and there is neither movement or power except by the Will of Allaah.”
