*The importance of a straightened saff in salaah, leaving no gaps in between(3rd Part).*


*On the day of Qiyaamah, we will be presented in front of Allah Ta`ala in line/Saff.(Surah Kahaf:Verse 48)*
وَعُرِضُوا عَلَى رَبِّكَ صَفًّا [الكهف : 48] سنن أبى داود – ()حَدَّثَنَا عُثْمَانُ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ حَدَّثَنَا وَكِيعٌ عَنْ زَكَرِيَّا بْنِ أَبِي زَائِدَةَ عَنْ أَبِي الْقَاسِمِ الْجُدَلِيِّ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ النُّعْمَانَ بْنَ بَشِيرٍ يَقُولُأَقْبَلَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ عَلَى النَّاسِ بِوَجْهِهِ فَقَالَ أَقِيمُوا صُفُوفَكُمْ ثَلَاثًا وَاللَّهِ لَتُقِيمُنَّ صُفُوفَكُمْ أَوْ لَيُخَالِفَنَّ اللَّهُ بَيْنَ قُلُوبِكُمْ قَالَ فَرَأَيْتُ الرَّجُلَ يَلْزَقُ مَنْكِبَهُ بِمَنْكِبِ صَاحِبِهِ وَرُكْبَتَهُ بِرُكْبَةِ صَاحِبِهِ وَكَعْبَهُ بِكَعْبِهِ *_

Reported in Abu Dawood, that before Salaah, Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam turned His face Mubarak towards the sahabahs behind him and said: ‘’Straighten your Saff. Straighten your Saff. Straighten your Saff. I swear by Allah!, either you straighten your Saffs or else Allah Ta`ala will cause discord amongst you/differ your hearts.’’ So Nu`man bin Basheer r.a., the rawi said: so I saw the Sahabahs would make sure that their shoulders would align with each other, their knees align with each other and their ankles also align with each other.(Abu Dawood)_* *Aligning knees and ankles with each other does not mean to touch with each other. Rather be in the same line and hence the Saff is straignened.*
*Alhamdulillah nowadays we have line for Saff. So put the tip of your heels on them to be sure on the straight Saff and join shoulder to shoulder.*
*The issue of Saff is so important that the unity of muslims depend on it. Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam emphasized the issue by taking oath by the name of Allah: If you won`t see your Saffs, then expect discords and disunity amongst musallis and muslims.**Imagine now the havocs on the muslim community when doing distancing in salaah.*
