أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Hadhrat Moulana Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi (rahmatullahi alaih) had once gone for the dastaarbandi jalsah in Deoband. On account of the large crowd and the multitudes of people greeting Hadhrat, there was a slight delay in Hadhrat coming to the musjid. When Moulana had reached the musjid, the qiraat had already commenced. After the salaah was over it was noticed that Moulana was overcome by extreme grief and remorse. With intense anguish he said: “How sad it is, that today I have missed my takbeer-e-ula after twenty-two years.”(Tazkirat-ur-Rasheed, vol. 2, p. 16)

Moulana Zafar Ahmad Uthmani (rahmatullahi alaih) relates: “I remained for six years in the khidmat of Hadhrat Moulana Khaleel Ahmad Saharanpuri (rahmatullahi alaih). Never did I witness Hadhrat missing his takbeer-e-ula. However, there was one occasion when Hadhrat’s mouth began to bleed continuously whilst making wudhu for Fajr salaah. Hadhrat then sent a message with one of his attendants to the musjid that the jamaat should not be delayed on account of him. This was the only time that I had witnessed Hadhrat missing the takbeer-e-ula, though he managed to get the first rakaat.” (Tazkirat-ul-Khaleel, p. 345)

    why is Takbeer – e – Ula said. We know Adan is said to call people for Namaaz but why is Takbeer-e-Ula said.

      Bismillahirrahmanirraheem
      Takbeer-e-oola is the first takbeer in the salah

      Our pious elders were soon keen in offering salah in congregation that they make sure they do not even miss the first takbeer.

      The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Whoever prays for forty days with the congregation, always being present for the first takbeer, it will be written that he will be safe from two things: he will be safe from the Fire and safe from hypocrisy.” Saheeh al-Tirmithi, 200.
