عن كعب بن عجرة رضي الله عنه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم احضروا المنبر فحضرنا فلما ارتقى درجة قال آمين فلما ارتقى الدرجة الثانية قال آمين فلما ارتقى الدرجة الثالثة قال آمين فلما نزل قلنا يا رسول الله لقد سمعنا منك اليوم شيئا ما كنا نسمعه قال إن جبريل عليه السلام عرض لي فقال بعد من أدرك رمضان فلم يغفر له قلت آمين فلما رقيت الثانية قال بعد من ذكرت عنده فلم يصل عليك فقلت آمين فلما رقيت الثالثة قال بعد من أدرك أبويه الكبر عنده أو أحدهما فلم يدخلاه الجنة قلت آمين  رواه الحاكم وقال صحيح الإسناد (الترغيب و الترهيب رقم 1479)

Hadhrat Ka’b bin Ujrah (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that on one occasion Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) asked the Sahaabah to come close to the mimbar. When we came close, Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) ascended the mimbar. When he ascended the first step he said “Aameen”. When he ascended the second step he said “Aameen”. When he ascended the third step he said “Aameen”. (When he descended from the mimbar after delivering the khutba) The Sahaabah (Radhialahu Anhum) enquired, “O Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), we heard you mention something today that we never hear from you before (i.e. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) saying ‘Aameen’ thrice while ascending the mimbar). Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “When I ascended the first step, Hadhrat Jibra’eel (Alaihis Salaam) appeared before me and said, “Woe to him who found the blessed month of Ramadhaan and let it pass without gaining forgiveness (i.e. he did not fulfil the rights of this month).” Upon that I said ‘Aameen’. (When I ascended the second step) he said “Woe to him before whom your name is mentioned and he does not recite durood upon you.” I replied, ‘Aameen’. (When I ascended the third step) he said, “Woe to that person in whose presence both parents or one of them attain old age (and through failure to serve them and fulfil their rights) is not allowed to enter Paradise.” I said ‘Aameen’.”
