After the congregational maghrib salah Sayyidi wa sanadi Mufti Taqi Usmani (Allah protect & preserve him) went to the older section of the Prophet’s mosque (Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him). Making sure that he was within the limits of the original mosque (near to the blessed raudha just behind the riyadh al jannah). There he prayed the awabeen salah with extreme devotion. The standing (qiyam), bowing (ruku‘) and prostrations (sujood) were exceptionally prolong. This was followed by a long dua.
‘And remember the name of your Lord, and devote yourself to Him with exclusive devotion’Al-Muzzammil : 8
Those accompanying him were unable to keep pace with him and finished their awabeen routine early.
In spite of being a traveler (musafer) Sayyidi completed his routine. Even with more devotion.
It is an example for us to emulate.
