 Kaab bin Ujra radiyallahu anhu relates “Rasulullha (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “Come near to the mimbar.” And we came near the mimbar. When he ascended the first step of the mimbar he said: “Aameen”. When he ascended the second step he said: “Aameen”. When he ascended the third step he said: “Aameen”. When he descended we said: “O Rasul of Allah, we have heard from you today something which we never heard before. ” He said” When I ascended the first step, Jibra’il appeared before me and said: “Woe to him who found the blessed month of Ramadan and let it pass by without gaining forgiveness.” Upon that I said: “Aameen”. When I ascended the second step, he said: “Woe to him before whom thy name is mentioned and then does not read durood (salawaat) on you”. I replied: “Aameen”. When I ascended the third step he said: “Woe unto him in whose presence his parents or one of them attain old age, and (through failure to serve them) is not allowed to enter Jannah.” I said: “Aameen”.
