Dua for entering masjid in english

Oh, Almighty Allah , surely this is like a sacred place in Your heavenly gardens, a part of the tree of Your endless kindness.

It was acknowledged by Your Messenger and recounted by his ancestors, each serving as a testament to its significance.”

You have made it accessible to me in peace of mind.

So to You is the praise, O my Master, for the immense favor You have bestowed upon me in this matter, and for what You have provided me in terms of obedience to You, seeking Your pleasure, and venerating the sanctity of Your Prophet (ﷺ) through visiting his grave, sending blessings upon him, and revering him.

So to You is the praise, O my Master, in praise that is organized by which praises of the bearers of Your Throne and the inhabitants of Your heavens are adorned, and praise that continues for those who have passed and praise that is superior for those who remain among Your creation.

To You is the praise, O my Master, from the one who recognizes the praise, and the guidance to praise comes from You. A praise that fills what You have created and reaches wherever You desire.

Nothing can be concealed from You, nor can anything prevent it from reaching You. It reaches the utmost of Your satisfaction and does not miss its mark, whether at the beginning or end.

O Originator of the praiseworthy and the commencement of speech, the praise is Yours, O Everlasting in might and greatness, Permanent in sovereignty and power, Severe in grip and strength, Able in command and will, Expansive in mercy and forgiveness, Lord of the world and the Hereafter.

How many of Your blessings upon me that my feeble praise cannot encompass the easiest of them, and my gratitude falls short of expressing the slightest of them.

How many of Your actions towards me that I am unaware of most of them, and my thoughts cannot comprehend them.

O Allah, bless Your chosen Prophet (ﷺ), among both the young and the best of them in youth, adulthood, and maturity. He is the purest of the purified, the best of the continuous, the greatest of all creatures.

Through him, You clarified evidences, established missions, sealed prophethood, opened goodness, manifested him clearly, sent him as a Prophet (ﷺ), Guide, Trustworthy, and awaited Mahdi.

He calls to You, directs to You, serves as a sign for You, and a proof from You. O Allah, bless the infallibles from his descendants and the pure ones from his family. Elevate their ranks in Your presence, magnify their stations with You, and grant them the highest companionship in the loftiest assembly.

Raise the status of his Prophet’s (ﷺ) position in nearness to Your Messenger, and complete their happiness in meeting him. Make their abode a place of abundance for them.”

Recommended practices in Medina’s Prophet’s (ﷺ) Mosque.

  • Before going inside the Prophet’s (ﷺ) Mosque, it’s a good idea to bathe (ghusl). This is especially important if you also plan to visit the Imams’ tombs in Baqi. You can do just one bath with the intention of both.
  • If you’re in Medina, it’s recommended to stay there and help out. The writer of ‘Jawaher’ says that everyone agrees it’s a good thing.
  • It’s a good idea in Medina to fast for three days, like on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Pray near specific pillars on those days. Also, ask Allah for what you need and say a special prayer after visiting the Prophet’s (ﷺ) tomb.
  • It’s good to read more than one Quran while you’re in Medina. Especially try to read one in the Prophet’s (ﷺ) Mosque.
  • Give charity (sadaqah) in the Prophet’s (ﷺ) Mosque based on what you can afford. The Late Majlisi said that giving charity here is like giving a lot more elsewhere. Help Muslim believers, especially the Sayyids and the Prophet’s (ﷺ) descendants.
  • Be well-behaved, value your time, and pray as much as possible. Praying once here is like praying more somewhere else except Mecca. The best place to pray is at the Prophet’s (ﷺ) tomb.
  • Say a prayer for blessings (Salawat) when you enter and leave the Mosque.
  • When you enter the Mosque, pray two short prayers to show respect to the Mosque.
  • Pray for the Prophet (ﷺ) (s.a.w.a.) and ask for blessings from your parents, friends, and family.
  • After visiting the Prophet’s (ﷺ) tomb, pray two more short prayers and dedicate the blessings to the Prophet.
  • When you’re near the Prophet’s (ﷺ) grave, praise Allah and make your prayers.
  • Pray and make supplications at the spot where Jibraeel (a) is believed to have talked to the Prophet (ﷺ).
  • Try to pray at the Prophet’s (ﷺ) particular area (Mehraab) if possible.
  • Keep your voice low when you’re in the Mosque.
  • Pray two short prayers near the pillar of Abu Lubaabah and ask for what you need.
  • Pray at the Prophet’s (ﷺ) tomb and Fatemah Zahra’s house if you can. If not, pray as close as you can to those spots.

The Significance of Masjid in Islam.

My parents sent me to a nearby mosque from a very young age. After school, I used to learn about Deeniyat and other Islamic subjects. A masjid is a house of Allah where we worship him alone through the five daily prayers, supplementary prayers, reciting the Quran, etc.

The significance of mosques is genuinely remarkable. When the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) arrived in Madinah, he prioritized the construction of a mosque – a symbol of profound importance to us Muslims. Beyond its role as a prayer sanctuary, it had a broader purpose.

The mosque was a hub for learning about the faith, where the Prophet (ﷺ) and his companions (may Allah be pleased with them) engaged in discussions.

Together, they strategized ways to safeguard Madinah from threats posed by adversaries, emphasizing its pivotal role as a center of spiritual devotion and communal guidance.

The sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) for entering Masjid.

Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) Sunnah (recommended practice) for entering a mosque.

Right Foot First: Begin by entering the mosque with your right foot based on the teachings of and actions of Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ).

Recite Du’a: Recite any Dua from the above or say, “Bismillah, wassalatu wassalamu ‘ala Rasulillah. “Allahumma iftah li abwaba rahmatik,” which means “O Allah, open for me the doors of Your mercy.”

Entering with Gentleness: Walk in gently and humbly, showing reverence for the place of worship and those present.

Pray Two Rak’ahs (Optional): If you’re entering the mosque before or between prayers, consider offering two voluntary Rak’ahs (units of prayer) called the “Tahiyyat al-Masjid” prayer, expressing gratitude for being in the mosque.

Avoid Disturbing Others: Move quietly and avoid stepping over people sitting or praying. Find an appropriate spot to sit, if desired.

Offer Salutations: Greet those already in the mosque with words of peace (Salam) to foster a harmonious atmosphere.

Engage in Worship: Spend your time in the mosque engaged in acts of worship, such as reciting the Quran, making Dhikr (remembrance of Allah), or supplicating.

Can I enter masjid if I have period?

Surah Al-Nisa’ (Chapter 4) is a chapter in the Quran that addresses various matters related to family, inheritance, marriage, and social justice. The verse [4:43] is part of this chapter and reads as follows:

“Believers, do not come near your prayers while you are under the influence of alcohol, until you know what you are saying, nor when you are in a state of major impurity (Janabah)—except when you are merely passing through [a place of prayer or a mosque]—until you have bathed [your whole body].”

When you’re sick, traveling, coming from the bathroom, or if you’ve been with women and can’t find water, you’re allowed to use clean earth to clean your hands and face. This guidance from the Quran shows that Allah is forgiving and understanding.

This verse addresses the rules related to ritual impurity, prayer, and specific situations where ablution (wudu) or full ritual bathing (ghusl) might be required. Here’s a breakdown of the verse:

Intoxication and State of Janabah: The verse begins by advising believers not to approach the prayer (salah) if intoxicated or in a state of Janabah (major ritual impurity, often occurring after sexual activity or seminal emission).

Exceptions for Those Passing Through An exception is made for those merely passing through a place of prayer. They can pray even if they are in a state of Janabah or have not performed the necessary ablutions.

Ablution (Wudu) or Ritual Bathing (Ghusl): Those in a state of Janabah or have had sexual contact are required to perform ghusl, a more comprehensive form of purification than wudu. Ghusl involves washing the entire body. This verse emphasizes that those in such a state should only approach prayer once they have performed the ghusl.

Exceptional Situations: The verse then addresses situations where water for purification is not readily available. If someone is ill, traveling, has used the restroom, or has had sexual contact with their spouse and cannot find water for purification, they are permitted to perform “tayammum,” which involves using clean earth to wipe over their hands and face, simulating the purification process. This is a temporary concession for cases when water is scarce or unavailable.

Forgiveness and Mercy: The verse concludes by reminding believers that Allah is forgiving and merciful. This verifies that Allah understands human limitations and offers forgiveness for unintentional lapses or situations beyond one’s control.

Is it not allowed to wear shorts in the mosque?

As far as wearing shorts is concerned in Masjid, you always have to keep yourself in modest clothing. There is a general understanding of modesty and respect in Islam, especially regarding clothing.

The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said, Do not set out on a journey except for the three Masjids. That is Al-masjid-Al-Haram, Jerusalem Mosque, and Allah’s Apostle Mosque. source (Sahih al-Bukhari).

In a part of the Quran, in Surah Al-A’raf, which is Surah number 7, Verse 31, Allah says, “Hey, children of Adam, when you go to the mosque, make yourselves look nice. You can also eat and drink, but don’t do too much. Allah doesn’t like people who go too far.”

So it is not allowed to wear shorts in Masjid. Beautify yourself when you come to a masjid.

It is essential for us when we come to a Masjid; eventually, we will be worshipping the Almighty, who has absolute power and is limitless. Allah, as understood in Islamic theology, can do anything and everything.

Any limitations do not bind his power, and He has complete control over the entire universe and all its aspects.

What is the reward for praying in Masjid al Nabawi?

Masjid al-Haram, also known as the grand mosque, holds a special place in every Muslim’s heart with great Islamic history. This mosque was built before the creation of humankind by angels. The almighty Allah decreed a sacred place on earth for worship.

The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said, Do not set out on a journey except for the three Masjids. That is Al-masjid-Al-Haram, Jerusalem Mosque, and Allah’s Apostle Mosque. source (Sahih al-Bukhari).

Abu Huraira shared that Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said something important. He said that praying in a mosque called Masjid an-Nabawi is really good. It is equivalent to 1000 Raka’h, saying that one prayer there is like doing a thousand prayers in other mosques, Al-Masjid al-Haram.

Can we sit in Masjid without wudu?

You can enter the mosque even if you don’t have wudhu (ritual purification), but respectful to have wudhu while you’re there. Wudhu is a way of cleaning from negativities before prayer, and it’s nice to be clean and respectful in the mosque.

Conclusion dua for entering masjid.

Dua for entering the Masjid is an act of heartfelt gesture and humility as Muslim steps into Masjid to connect with the divine. Dua, for entering Masjid, becomes an emblem of respect to seeking blessings from Almighty Allah SWT.

Dua for entering Masjid has been an unbreakable practice with many benefits since Prophet Muhammad’s (ﷺ) times. The dua for entering Masjid eradicates negative distractions and creates a deep connection with the Almighty instilling a sense of spiritual rejuvenation.
