Asalamualaikum
So my mom said the first thing I need to do is step in with my right foot ofcourse and then read yasin sharif and the first thing I should put in the house is Quran and then salt and water bottle...
Does anyone else know of this.. and what is the sunnah of our prophet pbuh when he moved into a new place?

wsalaam,

His sunnah saw when he moved to a place was to build a mosque Smiley well i never heard of that salt and water stuff or reading a particular surah? They are perhaps cultural practices.

 peace be upon you


All praise be to Allah.



It is narrated that the Prophet (s) recommended reading Surah Baqarah in one's home, and that it would repel the shaitans from entering the home.

As always, it is recommended to reflect on the meaning of the verses of the Quran when being read.


My shaykh was asked if it would be sufficient to play a taped recitation of the Quran.  He replied:

"It is better to read it in person, as there is more likely to be benefit from that.  However, if the Quran is played from a recording, we hope they will obtain some of the benefit of reciting it."




 

Be merciful to those on earth, and the One in the Heavens will be merciful to you.

I have also heard that reciting surah Bakarah by the people living in the house is beneficial.

 cat The Imam at one of our Mosques here has advised that by reading Surah Al Baqarah daily in the house it enhances the peace / tranquility amongst the people residing there. karate karate  beat bolt

 cat On a lighter note and in reference to Sr Jannah's comment about stuff being "cultural", my late gran (May Allah SWT grant her Jannah Ameen) use to always ensure that the first thing cooked on a stove in a new house is FISH.  Somthing to do with Barakah  frenchfries pizza cookie

 cat So to answer the original question, i don't know of anything particular that is to be read and think the most important thing is that it does not become a one time effort when we move in and continue in any form of ibadah all the time, Insha Allah, which i am sure you do anyway  hug
