righteous servants

  • 1 To receive the reward for greeting all the righteous servants

    Narrated `Abdullah ( may Allah be pleased with him ):

    We used to say in the prayer: 'As-Salam be on Allah, As-Salam be on so-and so.' So one day the Prophet ( may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) said to us, "Allah Himself is As-Salam; when anyone of you sits during his prayer, he should say: 'at-tah, iyyatu-li l-lahi,' up to 'As-Salihin,' (All the compliments are for Allah ...righteous people) for when he recites this, then he says his Salam to all the righteous people present in the heavens and on the earth. Then he should say, 'I testify that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah, and that Muhammad is His slave and His Apostle,' and then he can select whatever he likes to celebrate (Allah's) Praises."
