The following simple good deeds enable the angels to supplicate for you by the permission of Allah . We often take small deeds for granted, not realising the immense good Allah has placed within them. Perchance, through these deeds Allah will make us from among the honoured on the Day of Judgement. Those Eligible for the Angels Supplications 1. Purifying Oneself The Prophet said in the adīth of Abdullāh ibn Abbās ʻ ʻ , “Purify these bodies may Allah purify you. There is no person who sleeps in a state of ritual purity except that an angel sleeps alongside him. He does not turn throughout the night except that the angel says, 'O Allah forgive Your slave for he slept in a state of ritual purity.”[1] Thus, the simple deed of performing wu ū before sleeping is a means of mercy and having an angel by your side as you sleep. 2. The Prayer There are many aspects of the prayer, and in particular the congregational prayer, that bring about the supplications of the angels, and more importantly of Allah . It is these small deeds which are often ignored and neglected that can make the difference. The first of these acts is to arrive slightly early for the prayer at the mosque and wait. Abū Hurayrah narrated that the Prophet said, “One of you does not sit waiting for the prayer except that he is counted as being in the prayer, so long as he does not break his ablution. The angels supplicate for him saying, 'O Allah, forgive him. O Allah, have mercy upon him.'”[2] As you wait, try your utmost to find a space in the first row. Do not just laze around at the sides or the back of the prayer hall allowing others to precede you in good. The famous scholar, Ibn ibbān collected on the authority of Al-Barā' ibn Āzib ʻ that the Prophet said, “Indeed, Allah and His angels supplicate[3] for those who pray in the first row.”[4]

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
