Hazrath Ka’b bin Ujrah (radhiallahu anhu) relates that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) once said: “Come closer to the mimbar.” We came closer. When Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) placed his foot on the first step of the mimbar he said “Aameen” when he ascended the second step he again said “Aameen” and likewise on the third step. When Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) had completed delivering his sermon and descended the pulpit, we enquired from him: “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), today we have heard from you something which we have never heard before.” Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “When I ascended the first step, Jibra’eel (alaihis salaam) appeared before me and said: “May that person be destroyed who is alive in the month of Ramadhaan and yet he did not gain forgiveness. I said “Aameen” (may it be accepted). When I ascended the second step, he said: “May that person be destroyed in front of whom your name is taken and he does not send durood upon you. I said “Aameen.” When I reached the third step, he said: “May that person be destroyed whose parents or one of them attains old-age in his lifetime and he does not gain entrance into Jannah through them and I said “Aameen.”
