Another virtue of those who walk to the masjid in the darkness


Is this Hadith suitable to quote?

“Those who frequent the Masjids in darkness, undoubtedly are the people who are immersed in Allah’s Mercy”



Imam Ibn Majah (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Those who walk to the Masjids in the darkness, they are those who are absorbed in the mercy of Allah.”

(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 779)


The Hadith could be declared sound due to corroboration and is suitable to quote.

(Refer: Al Mudawi, Hadith: 3568)
