40 People attending Janazah Salaah
Sayyiduna Ibn Abbas
رضى الله تعالى عنه
رسول الله صلى الله تعالى عليه وسلم
When a Muslim passes away, and forty such people attend his Janazah Salaah, who do not ascribe partners with ALLAH TA’ALA, then ALLAH TA’ALA accepts their intercession for him
When more people attend a Janazah Salaah, the reward for the deceased is more, due to the increased amount of Du’as, in his favour.
A specific number is not the objective.
Some narrations have 100 people and some have 3 rows.
Sometimes ALLAH TA’ALA promises rewards, due to His benevolence, although nothing is binding upon Him.

5 Questions on the Day of Judgement
عَنْ ابْنِ مَسْعُودٍ عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ
لَا تَزُولُ قَدَمُ ابْنِ آدَمَ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ مِنْ عِنْدِ رَبِّهِ حَتَّى يُسْأَلَ عَنْ خَمْسٍ عَنْ عُمُرِهِ فِيمَ أَفْنَاهُ وَعَنْ شَبَابِهِ فِيمَ أَبْلَاهُ وَمَالِهِ مِنْ أَيْنَ اكْتَسَبَهُ وَفِيمَ أَنْفَقَهُ وَمَاذَا عَمِلَ فِيمَا عَلِمَ
2416 سنن الترمذي
Imām Tirmidhī relates in his sunnan that on the Day of Judgement a person will not shift until they have been questioned about five things:
1. Where did they while away their age?
2. How did they spend their youth?
3. Where did they acquire their wealth?
4. How did they spend their wealth?
5. How did they act on the knowledge that was given to them?
The key points of this ḥadīth are the first two questions, relating to how a person spends their time and more specifically how they spent their youth. We are often conscious of how we generate our wealth and spend it, however our time is a free commodity given to us by Allāh which we will also be questioned about.

Virtues of Surah Kahf
“Virtues of Surah Kahf” by Shaykh Abu Yusuf Riyadh Ul Haq.
The hadith related by Hakim and Bayhaqi, from Abu Sa`id (Allah be pleased with him), “Whoever recites Surat al-Kahf on Friday, light shall shine forth for him between the two Fridays”. [Ibn Hajar, Talkhis al-Habir]
Hazrat Al Baraa said that when a man was reciting Surah Kahf with a horse tied with two ropes at one side. Suddenly a cloud overshadowed him, and as it began to come nearer and nearer, his horse began to take fright. He went and mentioned it to the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam in the morning and he said, “That was tranquillity which came down by reason of the Qur’aan.”
Hazrat Abu Darda radiyallahu anhu reported Allah’s Messenger sallallahu alaihe wasallam saying, “If anyone memorises ten verses from the beginning of Surah Kahf, he will be protected from the Dajjal (Anti-Christ).” (Muslim)
Hazrat Abu Darda radiyallahu anhu reported Allah’s Messenger sallallahu alaihe wasallam saying, “Anyone who reads the first three verses of Surah Kahf, he will be protected from the trial of the Dajjal (Anti-Christ).” (Tirmizi)
