593-A DEAR BOUNTY

A DEAR BOUNTY

Rang-o-Noor (BY SA'DI)

(Shumara: 593)

Two Rak'at Prayer is the best method of gaining nearness with Allah, the easiest way to win Allah's love, an effective method of getting ones needs fulfilled, a grand method of getting ones sins resolved and the strongest source of acquiring Allah's Paradise. O brothers and sisters' two Rak'at Prayer is a great power, a big wealth and a great bounty. May Allah bless us with yearning for two Rak'at Prayer then every task and goal will become easy! May Allah expose to us the origin of two Rak'at Prayer and remove the Satanic negligence from us regarding this prayer! Both the world and the Hereafter will become easy if Allah wills. I had been trying to write on this topic for so many weeks but some excuse or other hampered me. The Satan is enemy of prostration. He is pained much due to two Rak'at Prayer because it contains four prostrations which carry man so nearer to Allah that the Satan has no access to it. That's why; the Satan keeps putting in hard labour to keep humans away two Rak'at. He locks man's back because he knows that the man blessed with taste for two Rak'at Prayer covers big stages of success. Today I have started writing on this topic with the capacity granted by Allah. May correct wordings be written so that we may benefit from it fully. بسم اللّٰہ مجرھا ومرسھاان ربی لغفوررحیم
A Gift First: Accept a grand gift before advancing with the point of two Rak'at Prayer. Some people remain in search of Ism Azam i.e. Allah's Great Name through which prayers are granted. There are several sayings and different tastes about it. The truth is that every of Allah's name is Ism Azam. It needs addition of faith, sincerity and love for Allah. It is certain that a few words, names and supplications have great efficacy. It is also noteworthy that the Holy Prophet ﷺ has stated so many excellences of two Rak'at Prayer so stressively stimulating the Muslim Ummah to it consequently the Sahaabah gained those benefits so wonderfully. Seeing them all, it can be said that establishing two Rak'at Prayer purely for the good-pleasure of Allah has the efficacy of Ism Azam. Memorise these four supplications or keep them with you. Whenever you have lawful need, recite them and demand your needs from Allah reciting Durood also. The topic under discussion today is "Two Rak'at Prayer." We must recite these supplications and demand from Allah, "O Allah, inculcate in us taste for Two Rak'at explaining to us their value! O Allah, bless us with this power, bounty and might of two Rak'at permanently. Those four supplications are as under (1) یَااِلٰھَنَا وَاِلٰہَ کُلِّ شَیْئٍ اِلٰھاً وَّاحِداً لَااِلٰہَ اِلَّااَنْتَ O our Lord, O the Lord of every thing, You are the only Lord, there is no Lord save You.
Some exegetes write that Hazrat Sulaimaan's minister Hazrat Asif bin Barkhia had these words. He got Balqees' throne lifted in the twinkling of an eye with the help of these words. (Allah knows better)
Power Of Two Rak'at: The Holy Prophet ﷺ says, "The Muslim who observes ablution properly and establishes two Rak'at Prayer devoutly is absolved." (Al Muslim)
In another tradition, the Holy Prophet ﷺ said after telling the method of ablution, "All the past sins of the Muslim who observes ablution as I do and establishes two Rak'at Prayer without letting any other idea in them is absolved." (Al-Bukhaari, al-Muslim)
Think over these two narrations. This is the position of two Rak'at supererogatory prayer whose price is the realization of the Paradise and absolution of sins. It becomes known that two Rak'at Prayer is a very mighty deed which can admit man to the Paradise when other needs are very trivial. That's why; venerable Sahaabah and our ancestors would leap at two Rak'at Prayer as an infant leaps at milk when he is hungry. He establishes two Rak'at Prayer when he observes ablution and when he enters the Masjid or stays with someone as a guest or sees a Masjid during his journey or a calamity befalls or a need arises or eclips occurs or some indecision befalls. Actually, they were steeped in love for Allah. Two Rak'at Prayer was a source of their union and communion with Allah. That's why; they were mad-lovers of two Rak'at Prayer. O Allah, bless us also a little with this true and pure relation!
Benefits of Two Rak'at Prayer: A few weeks ago, when I resolved to write a column on "Two Rak'at" I cast a cursory glance at its excellences and wrote a few points on a piece of paper. If I write those points, the column will expand to so many pages whereas the object is just to attract the Muslims to this topic. A few points are as under:
 Many traditions and narrations are found about two Rak'at Sunnah of Fajr.
 Ecstatic excellences are found about two Rak'at Tahajjud prayer.
 There is mention of reward for a Hajj and an Umrah if a Mu'min sits at his place after the Fajr till the establishment of two Rak'at Ishraq prayer. The words occur تامہ تامہ i.e. reward for complete Hajj and Umrah.
 There is promise of forgiveness if a Muslim commits a sin but he establishes two Rak'at and seeks forgiveness. The Muslim is advised to establish two Rak'at Prayer if he needs something from Allah or His slaves. The supplication is also taught.
 Two Rak'at Prayer for Istikhaarah is a very comprehensive bounty. You have read so many articles on the excellences of Istikhaarah in the Rang-o-Noor.
 A Sahaabi requested the Holy Prophetﷺ to tell him something about high ranks in the Paradise. He ﷺ taught him the supplication with the advice to keep making the supplication strong with the help of prostrations.
In short, two Rak'at Prayer is the best source for a Mu'min to acquire every bounty of this world and the Hereafter from Allah. May Allah bless us all with this bounty!
