Hadith Explanation

Going to the Masjid in the Dark

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Give glad tidings of perfect light on the Day of Resurrection to those who walk in the dark to the Masjid.” [Abu Dawud]

This is great news to those who wake up at night, leave the comfort of sleep and the softness of their beds, recite the Adhan after the Muadhdhin and then walk to the Masjid in calmness, during the coldness of the night and in total darkness.

Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) will record the steps they take to the Masjid and Allah willing they are worthy of the glad tidings that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) has conveyed.

Therefore, neither let Shaitaan overcome you with sleep nor hesitate to wake up for the prayer. Wake up and rush to Paradise prepared for the pious, as wide as the heavens and the earth. In it there is of delights what no eye has ever seen, no ear has ever heard and no heart has ever imagined.

May Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) bring you to this destination and make Paradise your final dwelling. Ameen.
