I would like to know the answer of the following questions
1:- Why number three is important in Islam? for example 3 kul,3 time hand, nose, mouth, face and legs washing in wadu,3 divorce, to paak clothe washing 3 times, throw sand on grave 3 times, Recite Tasbeeh in Ruku and Sajdah minimum 3 times,
2:- Is there any Du’aa to recite between first and second Sajdah?
3:- Is this true that if the person travel between two municipality which are only 12km apart from each other will become Musaafir?
4:- My friend always argue that we mustn’t judge about anybody because Allah knows best then what about John Paul 2 he said I cant say that he going to go in Jahanam.
- In Islam, accomplishing certain tasks in odd numbers is significant. Imam Tirmidhi mentions a Hadith in which Nabi (SAW) is reported to have said, “Certainly Allah is odd and loves that which is odd.” In Arabic, the first plural number is number three. If a person counts from number one, the very first number which denotes multitude is number three which is odd. It is for this reason, that in certain aspects of Shari’ah, when a large amount is intended, then it must be done in the least odd number which denotes multitude and that is number three.
- Abu Dawood and Ibne Majah mentions the narration of Ibne Abbas in which he says that Nabi (SAW) used to recite the following Du’aa between the first and second Sajdah: Allahummagh fir lee war hamni wahdini wa aafini war zuqni. (Sunan Abi Dawood Page 196, Ibne Majah Page 290.)
- The person will not be a Musaafir.
- A person who leaves this world with Imaan will ultimately go to paradise; whereas, he who dies whilst ascribing partners with Allah will be doomed to the fire of hell.
And Allah Ta’ala knows best
