Ramadan Tip #1: Living By Islam – Manners of waking up!

Since Ramadan is just around the corner, it is a good time to go through our daily routine and try to implement as many Sunnahs in our day, as possible. Because glad tidings have been given to those, who revive a Sunnah.

Our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said:
“Ahead of you, there lie days of patience, during which being patient will be like grasping a hot coal. The one who does good deeds then will have a reward like that of fifty men who do such deeds.”
Someone asked, “O Messenger of Allah, the reward of fifty of them?”
Our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “The reward of fifty of you.” [1]

Some other reports of the hadith mention,“They are the ones who will revive my Sunnah and teach it to the people.” 

So, it is clear that by reviving a sunnah, we get an amazing reward every day, but imagine if the sunnah is revived in Ramadan; what its reward is going to be! Subhan Allah!

Let’s start with the sunnahs we can revive when we wake up in the morning.

1. Remembrance of Allah should be the first thing, when you wake up.
Recite any Masnoon Dua; for example,

الحَمْـدُ لِلّهِ الّذي أَحْـيانا بَعْـدَ ما أَماتَـنا وَإليه النُّـشور

“All praise is for Allah who gave us life after having taken it from us and unto Him is resurrection” [2]

2. You should rub your eyes to remove any signs of lingering sleep.

3. Another point to remember is to wash your hands thrice, before putting them in any utensil or pot.

Narrated by Abu Huraira  رضي الله عنه :

Our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said,

”When you wake up from sleep, you should not put your hand in (any) utensil of water until you wash it (three times).None of you knows where your hand has spent the night.” [3]

4. It has been recommended to clean you nose three times after washing your hands.
It was narrated by Abu Huraira رضي الله عنه :
 The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said,

“If any one of you rouses from sleep and performs the ablution, he should wash his nose by putting water in it and then blowing it out thrice, because Satan has stayed in the upper part of his nose all the night.” [4]

In sha Allah, if we start our day with the intention of reviving Sunnah, and remembering Allah سبحانه و تعالى, we would be one step nearer to our ultimate goal; to achieve the best of this life and the hereafter.
