of the Prophet |
`Ali bin Rabee`ata said: I witnessed Ali bin Abi Tãib when he was
given a beast of burden to mount, just when he put his foot in the
mount he said: In the name of Allah [ Bismillahi ], then
when he had ascended upon its back, he said: All praise be to Allah [
Al-hamdu lil-lãh ], then he said:
Subhãnal-lathee sakh-khara lanã hãthã wa mã kunnã lahu
muqrineena. Wa'innã 'lã rabbinã lamunqaliboona.(209).
Then he said Al-hamdu lil-lãhi 3 times , then he said: 'Allãhu
'akbaru, 3 times , then he said: Subhãnaka
'allãhumma 'inne thalamtu nafsee, faghfirlee, fa'innahu lã
yaghfiruth-thunooba 'illã 'anta(210),
(209) Surat 'Az-Zukhruf (#43) Glory be to Him who has availed this to our use, for we were not bound to it. And to our Lord surely we will be returning (V 13, 14).
(210) Glorified are You my ilãh I have transgressed upon myself, so forgive me, for no one forgives sins other than You.
Reported by Abu Dãwood, An-Nisã'ee, and At-Tirmithi, and he said it was comely-sound. Al-Albãni said it was as he said, that Ibn Hibbãn (#2380, 2381) also said it was sound, and so did Al-Hãkim, An-Nawawi, and others. He said that Al-Hãkim's ascription was through another channel by way of `Ali bin Rabee`ata. As for the channel of Abu Dãwood, At-Tirmithi, and An-Nisã'ee it is faulted due to 'Abi 'Ishãq 'As-Subai`ee's, who is in the chain of narration, skiping of two people between himself and 'Ibn Rabee`ata as has been certified by Ibn Hajar (see Sharh Ibn `Illãn). Al-Albãni included this hadeeth The Authentic of Good Sayings as #138.
