5 Minute Madressa for the 20th of Safar

(1) Islaamic History Hadhrat Yasa (AS)
Hadhrat Yasa (AS) was from the progeny of Hadhrat Yusuf (AS) and his name appears twice in the Qur’aan, in Surah An’aam and in Surah Saad. He initially served Hadhrat Ilyaas (AS) and then became the Nabi of the Bani Israa’eel after Hadhrat Ilyaas (AS) passed away. He gave Da’wah just as his predecessor did and propagated the same Shari’ah. When he grew very old, he then appointed Hadhrat Dhul Kifl (AS) as his successor.
(2) Rasulullaah (SAW)’s Miracle Mending a broken leg
As he was returning from assassinating Abu Raafi, Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Ateek (RA) broke his leg while descending a flight of stairs. However, it was immediately healed as soon as Rasulullaah (SAW) passed his hand over the leg. It then appeared as if it had never been broken.
(3) A Fardh Believing in the kingship of Allaah
Allaah says, “To Allaah belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and whatever is within them. He has power over all things”.
[Surah Maa’idah, verse 120]
Everything falls under the kingship of Allaah and nothing is excluded. It is Fardh (obligatory) to maintain this belief.
(4) A Du’aa from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW) Du’aa to die as a Muslim
The following Du’aa should be recited for death on Imaan and to be with the righteous ones:

فَاطِرُ السَّمٰوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ أَنْتَ وَلِيِّيْ فِي الدُّنْيَا
وَالآخِرَةِ تَوَفَّنِيْ مُسْلِمًا وَّأَلْحِقْنِيْ بِالصَّالِحِيْنَ

TRANSLATION: O Creator of the heavens and the earth! You are my Protecting Friend in this world and in the Aakhirah. Grant me death in a state of obedience (to Your commands) and include me among Your pious bondsmen (the Ambiyaa in the Aakhirah).”
[Surah Yusuf, verse 101]
(5) A Nafl A day’s optional fast
Rasulullaah (SAW) said that giving the world full of gold as Sadaqah every day until Qiyaamah will not earn as much rewards as fasting a single day’s optional fast.
[Kanzul Ummaal]
(6) A Sin Pride
Rasulullaah (SAW) said that a person with even a mustard seed of pride will not enter Jannah. Someone then asked Rasulullaah (SAW) about the person who likes to have good clothing and good shoes (whether he is regarded to be a proud person). Rasulullaah (SAW) replied, “Allaah also likes cleanliness and neatness. Pride is to reject the truth and to look down upon others.”
(7) This World The world is accursed
Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “The world and all within it is accursed save for the Dhikr of Allaah, all that helps towards it, the Aalim and the student of Deen.”
[Ibn Maajah]
(8) The Aakhirah The expanse of Jannah
Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “I swear by the Being Who controls the life of Muhammad! The distance between two gates of Jannah is as far as Makkah is from Hajar (or as far as Makkah is from Busra).”
(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW) Bodily pain
Hadhrat Uthmaan bin Abul Aas (RA) reports that he once told Rasulullaah (SAW) about the pain he suffered in his body since he had accepted Islaam. Rasulullaah (SAW) advised that any person suffering bodily pain should first recite Bismillaah three times and then seven times the Du’aa:

أَعُوْذُ بِالله ِوَقُدْرَتِهِ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا أَجِدُ وَأُحَاذِرُ

TRANSLATION: I seek the protection of Allaah and His power from the evil of what I am experiencing.”
(10) Advice from Rasulullaah (SAW)
Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Be particular about reciting the Qur’aan and Dhikr because they will grant you acclaim in the heavens and are a source of guidance on earth.”
