Ramadan 2006 (Sunnah : The Perfect Example)


Sunnah of Entering & Leaving the House (Part 2)

Dua for leaving the house:

‘Bismillahi Tawak-Kaltu A’lallahi Wala Howla Wala Quwwata Illa billah’

‘In the name of Allah, I trust in Almighty Allah, there is no power
and might except from Almighty Allah’ 

No more difficulties:

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (R.A) narrates that Holy Prophet (S.A.W) said,
“When a person leaves the house, he is accompanied by two angels. When the person says ‘Bismillah’ the angels say you have chosen the right path. When the person says ‘La Howla Wala Quwwata Illa Billah’the angels say you are free from difficulty. When a person says ‘Tawak-Kaltu A’lallah’, then the angels say now you are not in need of someone or anything.

After this the two devils that are allocated to him meet him, the angels question the devils, ‘What do you intend to do with him, as he has chosen the right path, he will be saved from difficulties and he is no longer in need of anyone’”. 

Manners of entering and leaving the house:

  • Ask permission before entering the house or room.
  • To say Salaam when entering the house, even if it is empty.
  • If there is no one in the house then say, ‘Assalaamualaikum Ayyuhan Nabbiyu’, as in a Muslim’s house the soul of the Prophet (S.A.W) is present. (As..Shifa by Qadi Ayaz)
  • To greet those who are present in the house, with Islamic greeting, whether if it’s ones wife, children, etc.
  • Do not peep into someone’s house.
  • Make Dua for the households.
