Shakin’ off Sins – A Three Step Recipe

Bismillah. To earn some super-easy ajr and to remove (minor) sins, please follow this recipe:

1. Spot a Muslim brother (if you’re female, then spot a sister).

2. Initiate the greeting of “As Salaamo ‘alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu” (FYI: there’s 3x the reward for saying the full greeting).

“You will not enter Paradise until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another. Shall I not tell you about something which, if you do it, you will love one another? Spread salaam amongst yourselves.”


3. Super-easy, walhamdulillah. Add the following to the mix:

Al Bara’a relates that the Prophet [SAWS] said,

“When 2 Muslims meet and shake hands, they are forgiven their sins before they part.”

[Abu Dawud]

Shake, shake and shake thoroughly. Repeat as often as you desire 🙂

Alhamdulillah, you’ve lost just your (minor) sins and earned some ajr!
