THIS IS THE PRIVATEITY OF THE ASSEMBLY OF SCIENCE
The Islamic Ummah will rise and be victorious again if the congregation prays the dawn prayer like the Friday prayer. There are many virtues of the Fajr prayer in congregation, especially if after the Fajr prayer the congregation continues with other worship services until the sun rises, the reward is equal to the reward of a perfect Hajj. This is what the congregation of the Az Zikra mosque led by Ustaz Muhammad Arifin Ilham does, every day they gather to perform the dawn prayer in congregation followed by halaqoh (assembly of knowledge) until the sun rises. The following are the virtues of the science assembly explained by Ustaz Muhammad Arifin Ilham:
Assalaamualaikum warahmatullaahi wabarkaatuhu. My friend, this is the priority of the Assembly of Sciences, especially after the Fajr prayer at the mosque in congregation until sunrise.
First, to achieve the reward of the perfect Umrah pilgrimage, "Whoever performs the Fajr prayer in congregation in the mosque, then sits in dhikr (tadurrusan) until the sun rises, then performs two cycles of prayer, then he will receive the reward of Hajj and Umrah. Rasulullah continued, "Perfect, perfect, perfect" (HR At-Tirmidhi),
Second, the assembly of knowledge is likened to sitting in the garden of heaven of God SWT, the Prophet, peace be upon him, said: "If you pass by the garden of heaven, then stop with pleasure". The companions asked, "What is the Garden of Heaven?" "He (saw) replied, "The halaqoh-halaqoh of dhikr (or the halaqoh of knowledge)" (HR. At-Tirmidhi).
Third, entering the noblest generation, namely the Rabbani generation, Allah SWT says: "Be you, the Rabbani generation, who always teach the Qur'an and as Sunnah and continue to study them," (QS Ali Imran 79).
Fourth, including the mujahid in the path of Allah, the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: "Whoever goes out of the house to seek syar'i knowledge, then he strives in the path of Allah until he returns," (HR. At-Tirmidhi).
Fifth, God will be proud, the Messenger of God, peace be upon him, said: "There is no people sitting in the assembly of knowledge and remembrance of God, surely surrounded by angels, covered by God's mercy, peace is revealed to them and their name is called God in front of His angels." ( HR. Muslim).
Sixth, receiving God's mercy, the Messenger of God, may God bless him and grant him peace, said: "Whoever goes in search of knowledge, God subhanahu wata'ala will open for him the way to heaven and the angels will spread their wings to shelter him. And the angels in the sky and the whales in the sea will bless him. The superiority of a scholar over a worshiper is like the superiority of the moon on a full moon night over all the stars. Scholars are the heirs of the prophets, the prophets did not inherit dinars and dirhams, but inherited knowledge. Whoever takes knowledge, then he has obtained a large share (of that inheritance) ). The death of a scholar is an incurable calamity, a hole that cannot be filled, and a broken star. The death of a tribe is lighter than the death of a scholar." (HR Baihaqi)
Seventh, happy, calm, happy, Rasulullah SAW said: "For people who like to congregate in houses of worship, take turns reading the Qur'an and teach it to each other, calm and serenity will descend upon him, grace will be abundant and they will be guarded by angels, also Allah will always remember them.” (Muslim HR).
Eighth, in the pride of God, the Messenger of God, peace be upon him, said: "There is no people sitting in an assembly of dhikr to Allah (Majlis Ilmu), must be surrounded by angels, covered by the mercy of Allah, peace is revealed to them and their name is called Allah in front of His Angels." (HR. Muslim),
Ninth, away from the wrath of Allah, Rasulullah SAW said: "This world is cursed with everything in it except dzikrullah (obedient to Allah) and the like, knowledgeable & seekers of knowledge." (HR. At-Tirmidhi),
Tenth, the congregation of halaqoh knowledge will gather together again in the afterlife, "A person in the afterlife will be gathered with whom he loves in the world".
So let alone our reason for not attending the science assembly, don't waste this short life. Let's achieve all that glory by sitting in His majesty.
