The virtues of Taqabbalallahu Minna wa Minkum
Because this sentence is exemplified by the Companions and is also a sunnah, of course it contains virtue or fadhilah. Here are some of the virtues of saying taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum :
Revive the Sunnah
Although other sayings (eg minal aidin wal faizin ) are not prohibited, the utterance taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum has its own virtues, namely reviving the sunnah exemplified by the companions and obtaining legality from the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam.
One of the great virtues of living sunnah is getting a reward like the reward of those who follow it.
مَنْ أَحْيَا سُنَّة️ مِنْ سُنَّتِى فَعَمِلَ بِهَا النَّاسُ كَانَ لَهُ مِثْلُ أَجْرِ مَنْ
” Whoever revives a sunnah from my sunnahs, then practices it by humans, he will get (a reward) like the reward of those who practice it, without reducing their reward in the least. ” (Narrated by Ibn Majah; shahih lighairihi)
So when we popularize this saying as well as this prayer, then other people practice it, God willing, we will get a reward like theirs without reducing their reward in the least.
Even if no one follows, or because everyone has said this prayer, we still get the reward for saying this prayer.
These sayings include good sentences, mentioning the name of Allah, glorifying Him, praying to Him, hoping in Him, praying for fellow Muslims. All of this is merit that brings rewards.
This sentence is also an Islamic symbol that when people hear it, they will remember Allah and remember this Islamic religion. All this also brings rewards.
Practicing this saying is one of the efforts to follow the companions of the Prophet radhiyallahu anhum who essentially follow the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam.
Regarding people who follow the Prophet’s companions well, Allah indicates that they will earn His pleasure.
وَالسَّابِقُونَ الْأَوَّلُونَ مِنَ الْمُهَاجِرِينَ وَالْأَنْصَارِ وَالَّذِينَ اتَّبَعُوهُمْ بِإِحْسَانٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمْ وَرَضُوا عَنْهُ وَأَعَدَّ لَهُمْ جَنَّاتٍ تَجْرِي تَحْتَهَا الْأَنْهَارُ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا أَبَدًا ذَلِكَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيمُ
“ Those who were earlier were the first (to convert to Islam) among the Muhajirin and Ansar and those who followed them well, Allah was pleased with them and they were pleased with Allah. God has prepared for them gardens beneath which rivers flow; they abide in it forever. That’s a big win .” (QS. At Tawbah: 100)
God Will Answer Prayers
Allah really likes it when His servants pray to Him. On the other hand, Allah is angry with those who pride themselves on not praying to Him.
Allah has said will grant the prayer of His servant. So the words of taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum which are the words of this prayer, will bring a response from Him.
وَقَالَ رَبُّكُمُ ادْعُونِي أَسْتَجِبْ لَكُمْ إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَسْlection
And your Lord said : “Pray to Me, I will surely allow it for you. Verily, those who are arrogant from worshiping Me will enter the Hell of Jahannam in a state of humiliation.” (QS. Al Mu’min: 60)
Also His words:
أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ
“I grant the request of the one who prays when he asks Me.” (QS. Al Baqarah: 186)
In fact, the word of Allah in Surah Al Baqarah verse 186 is in the middle of the verse about fasting during Ramadan, indicating that Allah will grant the prayers of those who fast during Ramadan.
And the prayer of taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum when Eid al-Fitr is said by people who have just fasted Ramadan.
Allah Accepts His Deeds
And this is the core that is desired by friends and all Muslims, as is the essence of prayer. That is, may Allah accept our deeds.
Uqbah bin Nafi’ radhiyallahu ‘anhu the conqueror of Africa, before needing Andalusia he prayed with a short but extraordinary prayer; “Allahumma taqabbal minna” which means “O Allah, accept (charity) from us.”
Because he realizes that the most important thing is that charity is accepted by Allah. What is the meaning of charity as big as jihad and conquering a country if it is not accepted by Allah. Therefore he prayed thus.
Likewise fasting and all our charity, we want everything to be accepted by Allah. Therefore we pray following the example of our friends: Taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum .
And because Allah has promised to accept the prayers of His servants, we are sure that if we pray with this prayer, Allah will grant Him by accepting our deeds and the deeds of our brothers and sisters for whom we wish happy holidays with this sentence.
