Daily Lesson 18

This Weeks Sunnah

Lifting footwear (shoes, sandles, slippers etc.) with the left hand

We all come across occasions when we need to pick up or move our shoes.

How do we normally do this? Well we have two real options; one is to use the right hand and the other is to use the left hand.

Whichever hand we use, we will get the job done, but only one of the hands will bring us reward in the hereafter.

So which hand will bring us the reward?

In the Hadeeth we find that our beloved Nabi ﷺ would pick up his footwear with his left hand, so whoever picks up their shoes etc. with their left hand will surely get rewarded. Simple as that!

So, the next time you are about to pick your shoes remind yourself to use your left hand, so that this simple and insignificant task can become rewarding and important in the hereafter.

This Weeks Du’a

Dua to be read on a hot day:

لا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا اللهُ مَا أَشَدَّ حَرَّ هٰذَا الْيَوْمِ ، اَللَّهُمَّ أَجِرْنِيْ مِنْ حَرِّ جَهَنَّمَ 

We all enjoy sunny days but what happens when it gets too hot? We don’t like it. We need fans and AC units to keep us cool and we ask for ice cold water and drinks!

What about Jahannam? Where it will be many more times hotter than anything in this world and there will be no cooling systems available.


La ilaha illallahu, ma ashadda harra hadhal yawm, allahuma ajirni min harri jahannam


“There Is No Deity Except Allah. How Hot Is This Day! O Allah, Protect Me From The Heat Of Jahannam”

Benefits of this dua?

Whoever reads this dua, Allah will protect him from the heat and fire of Jahannam!

From now on when it gets hot, quit complaining and start reading this beautiful dua.
