The Hadeeth of Three Aameens

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) ascended the minbar and said: “Aameen, aameen, aameen.” 

It was said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, you ascended the minbar and said, ‘Aameen, aameen, aameen.”

He said: “Jibreel came to me and said: ‘If Ramadaan comes and a person is not forgiven, he will enter Hell and Allah will cast him far away. Say Aameen.’ So I said Aameen.

He said: ‘O Muhammad, if both or one of a person’s parents are alive and he does not honour them and he dies, he will enter Hell and Allah will cast him far away. Say Aameen.’ So I said Aameen.

He said: If you are mentioned in a person’s presence and he does not send blessings upon you and he dies, he will enter Hell and Allah will cast him far away. Say Aameen.’ So I said Aameen.” 

Narrated by Ibn Hibbaan, 3/188; classed as saheeh by al-Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb, 1679.  Reference here

The same hadeeth with different wordings has been recorded in a different source, which is as follows:

Kaab Ibn Ujrah (radhi Allaahu anhu) relates that Rasulullah (peace be upon him) said Come near to the mimbar and we came near the mimbar. When he climbed the first step of the mimbar, he said “Aameen”. When he ascended the second step, he said “Aameen”, When he climbed the third step, he said “Aameen”. When he came down, We said “O Messenger of Allah, we have heard from you today something which we never heard before”.  He said,

‘When I climbed the first step, the angel Jibreel (alaihi as-salam) appeared before me and said,

“Destruction to him who found the blessed month of Ramdhan and let it pass by without gaining forgiveness”

upon that I said ‘Aameen’.

When I climbed the second step, he said,

“Destruction to him before whom Your name is taken and then he does not make Dua for Allah’s blessing on you (by saying, for example , Sal lal laahu alaihi wa sallam).

I replied ‘Aameen’.

When I climbed the third step, he said,

“Destruction unto him in whose lifetime his parents or either one of them reaches old age, and (through failure to serve them) he is not allowed to enter Jannah”.

I said ‘Aameen’. (Hakim, Baihaqi)

POINTS OF LEARNING: From both the versions of the hadeeths, we learn the importance of valuing the blessed month of Ramadan, honouring parents in their old age and sending prayers, peace and blessings on the glorious Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu ‘alaihi wa sallam

Note: In this Hadeeth, it appears that Jibreel (alaihis salam) gave expression to three curses, upon which Rasulullah (peace be upon him) said Aameen every time. In al-Durr al-Mansoor it is reported that Jibreel (alaihis-salam) advised Rasulullah (peace be upon him) to say Aameen.

Being an angel of such high mark, Jibreel ‘s giving these curses is sure to be accepted. May Allah (Subhanahu wa Taala) in His infinite mercy grant us His help and save us from these three dangers. Reference here
