 The Issue of ''Kissing the Thumbs'' - on hearing the Blessed Name of the Beloved Prophet Muhammad, May Allah Bless him and grant him peace.

Paperback/Booklet - 23 pages,
by Allamah Muhammad Shafi'i al-Okarvi, Rahmatullahi 'alayhi.


When hearing the Muazzin proclaim, "Ash'hadu anna Muhammadar­ Rasoolullah," it is preferred (Mustahab) to kiss the two thumbs or the shahaadat finger and place them on the eyes. There are many deeni and worldly benefits associated to this, as well as numerous Ahadith documenting its practice. Doing so was even practiced by the Sahaba-e-Kiram, and Muslims everywhere perform it in the belief that it is Mustahab.

Salaat-e-Mas'udi states, ''The Noble Messenger is reported to have said, "On the Day of Qiyaamat, I shall search for the person who used to place his thumbs on his eyes when hearing my name during the Adhaan. I shall lead him into Jannat, 23.1; Vol. 2, Chapter 20.


Book Conclusion:

This entire discussion establishes that kissing and placing the thumbs during the Adhaan, etc. is Mustahab. It is found as the Sunnat of' Sayyadina Hadrat Adam, 'alayhis as-salam, Hadrat Abu Bakr al-Siddiq, Radi Allahu ta'ala anhu, and Imam Hasan, Radi Allahu ta'ala anhu. Even Imams of the Shafi'i and Maaliki Mad'habs have ruled it to be Mustahab. In every era, Muslim deemed this practice to have this very ruling, along with many spiritual benefits.

NB:  This book is a study of the permissibility of 'Kissing the Thumbs and Rubbing the Eyes' upon hearing the Beloved Prophet's Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam's, name.
