*The importance of a straightened saff in salaah, leaving no gaps in between(1st Part).* 

*The last gaze of Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam on the Ummah was in Fajr salaah. He smiled as he saw the whole lot of Sahabahs praying adhering with all the disciplines of salaah behind Abu Bakr r.a.*صحيح البخاري – ()حدثنا أبو

اليمان قال أخبرنا شعيب عن الزهري قال أخبرني أنس بن مالك الأنصاري وكان تبع النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم وخدمه وصحبهأن أبا بكر كان يصلي لهم في وجع النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم الذي توفي فيه حتى إذا كان يوم الاثنين وهم صفوف في الصلاة فكشف النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ستر الحجرة ينظر إلينا وهو قائم كأن وجهه ورقة مصحف ثم تبسم يضحك فهممنا أن نفتتن من الفرح برؤية النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فنكص أبو بكر على عقبيه ليصل الصف وظن أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم خارج إلى الصلاة فأشار إلينا النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم أن أتموا صلاتكم وأرخى الستر فتوفي من يومه

*A very emotional hadith is reported in Bukhari. Before I tell you the hadith, I wish to tell you that the Islamic education of deen is alive and refreshes the face and the heart daily. If learned with ikhlaas and sacrifice, you experience tears, happiness and contentment in the heart when reading them. Reading them on and on will refresh the same emotions. As if you are seeing the images live in front of you. The refreshing images of Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam and his sahabahs refresh the face and the heart. They pump the force of imaan to strive in the path of Allah even in difficulties. This is the treasure that I discovered by sitting in front of my teachers. A treasure that cannot be stolen. That can be increased in stock. I wish to tell every parent to see that at least one son/daughter or one nephew or niece be sponsored for deeni education.* *_Each extended family should have his own alim/alimah available for emergency or delicate massails._*

*Khair, reported above in Bukhari that on the Monday that Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam left this world, while Sahabahs were praying Fajr salaah behind Abu Bakr r.a., Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam lifted the curtain of His house to glance the last gaze Mubarak on the Ummah. Seeing them in straight saffs, standing in complete concentration in Fajr salaah, praying behind the rightly guided Abu Bakr r.a., he could not contain his happiness. His Mubarak face was shining like white paper. That was the last time Sahabahs r.a. saw Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam. Yes, close relatives saw Him after that inside the house.*
*Fajr salaah is the thermometer of level of deen of the Ummah. The attendance of Fajr salaah is the best way to test imaan, taqwa and a`maal level of the ummah.*

*And also clearly reported in the Hadith of Bukhari above that Sahabahs r.a. were standing in saffs properly:*وهم صفوف في الصلاة*

*So it is very important to stand in Saff properly, without any gaps in between because that was the last imprinted set up of salaah recorded, approved and appreciated by Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam. So let`s not dwarf from that please.*
