There is an Hour every day When the Doors to the Heavens are Opened

There is an Hour every day When the Doors to the Heavens are Opened

From Abdullaah bin Sa’ib that the Messenger of Allaah – sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam – used to pray four Rak’at after the sun had reached its highest point and before the Dhuhur prayer and he -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam – said:

إِنَّهَا سَاعَةٌ تُفْتَحُ فِيهَا أَبْوَابُ السَّمَاءِ ، فَأُحِبُّ أَنْ يَصْعَدَ لِي فِيهَا عَمَلٌ صَالِحٌ

‘Indeed it is a time when the doors of the heavens are opened and I love that a good deed of mine ascends at that time.’

There is an Hour every day When the Doors to the Heavens are Opened
By the Noble Shaykh Muhammad bin AbdulWahhab al Aqeel

Translated by Abbas Abu Yahya

From Abdullaah bin Sa’ib that the Messenger of Allaah – sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam – used to pray four Rak’at after the sun had reached its highest point and before the Dhuhur prayer and he -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam – said:

إِنَّهَا سَاعَةٌ تُفْتَحُ فِيهَا أَبْوَابُ السَّمَاءِ ، فَأُحِبُّ أَنْ يَصْعَدَ لِي فِيهَا عَمَلٌ صَالِحٌ

‘Indeed it is a time when the doors of the heavens are opened and I love that a good deed of mine ascends at that time.’

Therefore, this is a blessed hour after the sun has reached its highest point. A blessed hour where the doors of the heavens are opened to accept actions.

It is necessary for a Muslim slave of Allaah to have a concern for all the optional prayers which the Prophet – sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam – used to perform and it is known that the optional acts -may Allaah Ta’ala protect you all- fulfill a deficiency which occurs in the obligatory actions, and there most definitely will be a deficiency.’
