The Footsteps Of Bilaal Radiallahu Anhu Heard In Jannat

Question

Why was the footsteps of Bilal Radiallahu Anhu heard in Jannah?

Answer

It was due to the fact that whenever he performed Wudhu (whether during the day or at night) he would perform Salaah. Many of the compilers of Hadith such as Allama Nawawi Rahimahullah have brought this narration under the chapter of performing two Rakaats after performing Wudhu which we generally refer to as ‘Tahiyyatul Wudhu.’
