Shall I face the Qibla with my back towards the blessed resting place of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ when making du’ā?

Imam Mālik (rahimahu Llah) was asked by the Khalif Abu Ja’far al-Mansūr:

Shall I face the Qibla with my back towards the blessed resting place of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ when making du’ā?

the-rawdah-mubarak

Imam Mālik (rahimahu Llah) replied,

How could you turn your face away from him ﷺ when he is your means (wasīla) and your father Adam’s means to Allah on the Day of Rising? No, rather you should face him ﷺ and ask for his intercession so that Allah will grant it to you, for Allah said, ‘If they had only, when they were unjust to themselves, come to you and asked Allah’s forgiveness, and the Messenger had asked forgiveness for them, they would have found Allah Oft-Returning, Most Merciful (Q4:64)’.

Eid Milad un Nabiﷺ Mubarak to all hisﷺ followers..

The Birth of the greatest of all creation.

He who is the reason for the creation of the universe.
He who prayed for us from the moment He was born until He physically left this world.
He who left us with a perfect example of how we should live, eat, walk, sleep, drink, talk, laugh, cry……

May countless Durood be upon Him
May our hearts forever be sacrificed on His name ♡♡♡
