On Seated Gathering Places (250)
The Messenger of Allah said:"No one sits in a seating place in which he utters much confusion, but then says prior to getting up from that seating place of his: Subhãnaka 'allãhumma wa bihamdika, 'ash-hadu 'allã 'ilãha 'illã 'anta, 'astaghfiruka wa 'atoobu 'ilayka(255)
except that Allah would cover up for him that which occurred in that seating of his".

(255) Glorified are You O' my 'ilãh and I am in your praise, I testify that there is no 'ilãh except You, I ask your forgiveness and repent unto You.


At-Tirmithi said it was comley-sound. Al-Albani agreed with him, and pointed out that a number of people reported it including: Ibn Hibbãn, and Al-Hãkim who said it was sound according to Muslims conditions. Al-Albãni said that Ath-Thahabi agreed with him, and that he agreed with the two of them. Al-Albãni included this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #177.
