Did you know that there’s a lot of benefit to walking to the Masjid?

Let’s face it – it already is hard enough to park your car in the Masjid on an ordinary day – come Ramadan and it just gets 100 times worse. But in all honesty, it’s no big deal – we should, in fact, learn to park further away from the Masjid. Not only will you be causing less traffic to the Masjid and its neighbours, but you will also be getting a whole lot more rewards. The Prophet ﷺ said:
“Whoever purifies himself in his house then walks to one of the houses of Allah in order to perform one of the duties enjoined by Allah, for every two steps he takes, one will erase a sin and the other will raise him one degree in status.” (Muslim)
Just look at this great example of one of the Sahabah! Ubayy bin Ka’b reported:
There was a man of the Ansar whose house was the farthest from the mosque. As far as I know, he never missed Salat (in congregation). It was said to him: “If you buy a donkey, you may ride upon it in the dark nights and in the hot days.” He said: “I do not like that my house should be situated close to the mosque. I desire that my walking towards the mosque and returning home be recorded to my credit.” Upon this the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Allah has gathered all (rewards) for you.”   (Muslim)
And when going for ‘Ishaa and Taraweeh, park far enough away to walk in the dark so that you receive complete light on the Day of Judgment. Buraidah reported: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said,
“Convey glad tidings to those who walk to the mosque in the darkness. For they will be given full light on the Day of Resurrection.” (Tirmidhi)
So start walking to the Masjid and #ReviveRamadan.
