Sulaiman: Thanking Allah for His Favours

Prophet Sulaiman was surely one of the best in the line of the Prophets of Allah sent to the people. Allah never sent to the people a  Messenger except from the best among them. He made in their persons and character a sign for the people to learn from and emulate as well as proof of their divine message.  He gave then special favours amongst the people and raise them from the best of lineage.  Prophet Sulaimain was not just a prophet and messenger, he was a king born of a king and the richest among them all. He was given power and authority over men, jinns, birds and animals alongside his vast wealth.  Prophet Sulaiman acknowledges Allah’s favours with this supplication.


Labbaika Allahumma Labbaik -Talbiyyah of the Prophet

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar : The Talbiyyah of Allah’s Apostle was :
‘Labbaika Allahumma Labbaik
Labbaika la sharika Laka Labbaik
Inna-l-hamda wan-ni’mata
Laka walmulk
La sharika Laka’
I respond to Your call O Allah
I respond to Your call
And I am obedient to Your orders
You have no partner
I respond to Your call
All the praises and blessings are for You
All the sovereignty is for You
And You have no partners with you.
(Bukhari Hadith)

When the Pilgrims get to the Miqat or places the prophet(swt) specified for people to enter into the state of Ihram. The Pilgrims put on their Ihram and make their intention out verbally reciting the Talbiyyah of the prophet as quoted above. At your service oh Allah at your service….

May Allah(swt) accept our service of Hajj and reward us with Jannah, this card is a reminder and good wishes for the prospective Pilgrim to Hajj or Umrah…


Hajj Mabrur – Accepted Hajj

Narrated Abu Hurairah: Allah’s Apostle said, “(The performance of) ‘Umrah is an expiation for the sins committed (between it and the previous one). And the reward of hajj mabrur (the one accepted by Allah) is nothing except Paradise.”
(Hadith Bukhari)

It is Hajj season now and people from all over the world are heading towards Mecca to perform the pilgrimage and I created this card as a tribute and reminder to the Hujjaj. May Allah accept their Hajj and enable the rest of us who are yet to go to make the journey.

Hajj Mabrur is the Hajj accepted by Allah for being performed perfectly according to the Prophet’s Sunnah with money earned in Halal way, avoiding sin and evil during the Hajj.
