1. PROCEED EARLY:
Proceed early as possible to the Masjid.The earlier one goes the greater the reward. (BUKHARI)
2. ALL ACTIVITIES:
All activities must be terminated after hearing the first Azaan.It is haraam to induldge in buying and selling or doing anything; other than preparing to go to Salaah after one hears the first Azaan.
3. WUDHU AT HOME:
Make wudhu at home if possible.Hazrat Abu Amama(R.A.) reported that Rasulullah(Sallallahu alaiyhi wasallam) said that a person who makes complete ablution(wudhu) at home and goes to the Masjid for Fard Salaat; is like going for Haj with Ihraam. (ABU DAWOOD)
4. WALKING TO THE MASJID:
To walk to the Masjid if possible;as it entails great reward.Rasulullah(Sallallahu alaiyhi wasallam) said:
for every step is a reward,there is a reward equal to one years fast.
One may still benefit even if one uses a conveyance(car etc.); thereby by parking a little further from the entrance of the Masjid. Thus more steps will be taken and more reward accumulated Insha-Allah.
5. TAHIYYATUL MASJID:
2 rakaats of Tahiyyatul Masjid can be performed upon entering the Masjid.
One should listen attentively to the Khutba, even if one
does not understand. One should not speak or even warn another to keep quiet while the Khutba is in progess. Between the 2 Khutbas one can make Duaa without raising the hands or moving the lips(ie. Duaa should be made in the heart only without movement of the lips or tongue.) (A'ADAAB-e-ZINDAGEE)
