THE SPECIALITY OF 40 DAYS

 

 

 

 

Salamo Aleykom Brothers and sisters :)

 

 

If we take a look in the Islamic history...it`s telling us the speciality of the number of 40. For those interested in spiritual Journey towards Allah (swt.) this can maybe a bit interesting topic. Not only in Islam, but the earlier People of the Book are declare it. Their holy scriptures like the Bible and Tora also contain this info. Lets take a look on how this number several time is being repeated in different situations:

 

 

 

ISLAM

 

1. Rasulallah (sw.) was in the age of 40 when he told the humanity about Nubuwwah.

2. Imam Mahdi (aj.) will appear like a 40 year old person when his arrival will take Place inshAllah.
3. Recital of Dua Ahad for 40 days after fajr give extraordinary effects by making the person joining the army of Hazrat Hujjah (aj.)

3. Reciting Ziyarat Ashura for 40 days is recommended for getting ones hajaat accepted.
4. Imam Baqir as has said that a person who drinks, his prayers will not be accepted for 40 days.

5. Ahulbayt (as.) has also told us that having Ikhlaas for Allah for 40 days will bring "springs of Hikmah" out of the person.
6. Mosa as was on Mount of Toor for 40 days.

 

 

Christianity:

 

 

1. When God destroyed the earth with water, He caused it to rain 40 days and 40 Nights.
2. After Moses killed the Egyptian, he fled to Midian, where he spent 40 years in the desert tending flocks
3. Before Samson’s deliverance, Israel served the Philistines for 40 years

 

 

 

Judaism:

 

1. Goliath challenged the Israelites twice a day for forty days before David defeated him.
2. Spies explored the land of Israel for "forty days."

 

 

 

 

 

ORAFA, 40 DAYS AND SPIRITUAL WAYFARING

 

 

IMPORTANT

Its said that practicing Heavy practices without a proper Ustaad may be Dangerous. But ofcource Dua Ahad, Zyarat Ashura are blessing for everyone. So this thread is not a Place where all of us can start everything (giving high doses to ourselves without proper guides". But more an inspiration and sharing knowledge inshAllah.

 

 

Maybe the Count of 40 is giving us a special information? The well-known Arif billah Ayatullah Sayyid Abdul Kareem Kashmiri (rahmatullah Alayh) is said to have extraordinary Power of istakharah. Imam Khomeini confirmed it and he is well-known among the urafaa. He was one of the students of Ayatullah Qadhi (May Allah shower His mercy on his lofty soal.) Its said that Agha Sayyid Kashmiri gained this special knowledge of istakharah by taking out an arbaeen (special worships for 40 days) and at the end recieved this special knowledge by Hazrat Ibrahim as. (if im remembering the right prophet).

 

Urafaa often use to tell us to practise this and that for forty days for purifying ones souls. Ayatullah Ibrahim Amini (God give him long life) also mention 40 days in his book Selfbuilding.

Forget about other religions, Islam itself has certain significance for 40 days.

 

Arbaeen - the reading of Ziarat Arbaeen being one of the five signs of a momin. Also if you notice, Arbaeen is only particular to SHIA Muslims. Rest of the Muslims, even some Christians, Jewish, Hindus, Sunnis, and Sikhs commemorate Ashura. This 40 day of mourning distinction for Imam Hussain (as) is only particular to Shia.

 

Hadith of Aimah that if you want to adhere to certain good habit OR leave certain bad habit, practice it for 40 days to make it into the habit.

وحدثني أبي رحمه الله، عن سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد ابن محمد بن عيسى، عن الحسن بن علي بن فضال، عن ابن بكير، عن زرارة، عن عبد الخالق بن عبد ربه، قال:سمعت أبا عبد الله (عليه السلام) يقول: ﴿لم يجعل له من قبل سميا﴾ (4) الحسين بن علي، لم يكن له من قبل سميا، ويحيى بن زكريا (عليه السلام) لم يكن له من قبل سميا، ولم تبك السماء الا عليهما أربعين صباحا، قال: قلت: ما بكاؤها، قال: كانت تطلع حمراء وتغرب حمراء 
 
 
And narrated to me my father (رحمه الله), from Sa'd bin Abdallah, from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, from  al-Hasan bin Ali bin Fudyal, from Ibn Bukyr, from  Zuraarah, from Abdul-Khaliq bin Abd Rabbah, who said: I heard Abu Abdullah ( عليه السلام ) said:
 
 {“We have not given this name to anyone before.”} (19:7). Husain Ibne Ali’s name was not given to anyone before him and Yahya Ibne Zakariya’s name was also not given to anyone before him. And the heavens did not weep over anyone for forty days except for two of them. The narrator asked, “How did the heavens weep?” Imam ( عليه السلام ) replied, “The heavens became red at sunrise and sunset.”

MashAllah great info!

 

Has anyone here completed 40 days of Dua ahad? Any experiences during that time within these 40 days?

yes my 40 days have been going on for the last several years , I have completed :Dua-Ahad at every corner of this world , on a plane 10,000 m above , on a ship, by myself , with family and watched the sunrise in all it's glory .

I can say this my dear brother , the miracle is already with us as :Allah swt has rewarded us already .

the greatest reward of this :Dua  has been answered before we recite it ,and its is that we are :Shia and we know the :Imam (as) of our time .

:Subhan-Allah.

MashAllah Brother :)  and alhamdolillah for that

 

 

Generally speaking about pakistani/Indian momineen. Sometimes we are often unaware of the contents in the duas we are reciting. For example in the pakistani community its very normal to just "recite through" the duas in arabic without getting to know the containt in the dua. People arent aware of the meaning nor the Message given in the dua. and then the ACTION according to the dua isnt acted upon.

 

Dua ahad for example is a dua with a great Message of action in it. The real benefit will inshAllah come by reciting, understanding, acting, and keep up this action so much that this action becomes a part of oul soul. If some momineen all over the world can do that... this an create changes.... powerful changes supporting the Imam of Time (aj.)

 

 

My Allah give me and all of us tawfeeq to do so :)

I have always been pondering that's what 40 days have so special in it and till this day I haven't received any answer. I know that 40 days period is special, but why? That is what I want to know. How it can have such tremendous effect? Why 40 days, why not 30 or 41 days? But I trust on Allah (SWT) fully. He knows best the reason for this. But it would be very interesting to know.

 

Maybe it is not revealed the reason because if people would knew it they might practicing all time 40 days period thing.

علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه، عن ابن أبي عمير، عن أبي أيوب، عن محمد بن مسلم قال: سمعت أبا عبدالله (عليه السلام) يقول: المؤمن لايمضي عليه أربعون ليلة إلا عرض له أمر يحزنه، يذكربه

 

 Ali bin Ibrahim from his father (Ibrahim bin Hashim) from Ibn Abi Umayr from Abi Ayyub (al-Khazzaz) from Muhammad bin Muslim who said: I heard Aba Abdillah عليه السلام saying: forty nights do not pass by a believer except that something occurs to him (in them) which grieves him - so it reminds him (of Allah).

Thank you very much for your answer. It is satisfactory answer, so that's the reason of 40 days to remind us of Allah (SWT).
