of the Prophet |
It is reported that Ibn 'Umar said: Rarely would the Messenger of
Allah get up from a seated gathering till he would supplicate with
the following petition for his companions:"'Allãhumma 'aqsim lanã
min khashyatika mã tahoolu bihi baynanã wa bayna ma'ãseeka, wa min
tã'a, wa min tã'atika mã tuballighunã bihi jannataka, wa minal
yaqeeni mã tuhawwinu bihi 'alaynã masã'ibad-dunyã, 'allãhumma
matti'nã bi'asmã'ina, wa 'absãrinã, wa quwwatinã mã 'ahyaytanã,
waj'ak hul-wãritha minnã, waj'al tha'ranã 'alãmen thalamanã,
wansurnã 'alã men, 'ãdãnã, wa lã taj'al museebatanã fee
deeninã, wa lã taj'alid-dunyã 'akbara hamminã, wa lã mablagha
'ilminã, wa lã tusallit 'alaynã men lã yarhamunã"(256)
(256) O' my 'ilãh part for us fear of You which You cause to come between us and the acts of disobedience to You, obedience to You through which You deliver us to your Garden, and of surety with which You make the calamities of the World easy for us to bear. O' my 'ilãh grant us joy in our hearing, our sight, and our strength so long as You keep us alive, and make them of the things we leave behind at death [meaning keep them well till we die], and make our retaliation to be upon those that have transgressed upon us, and cause us victory over those that have made us their enemies, and do not let our calamity be in our faith, and do not make the world the biggest of our concerns, nor the limit of our knowledge, and do not empower over us who will not have mercy upon us.
At-Tirmithi said it was comely, and Al-Albãni agreed. Al-Albani said that it was also reported by Ibn As-Sunni (#440), Al-Hãkim (528/1) who said it was sound according to the conditions of Al-Bukhãri, and that Al-Hãkim agreed with him. Al-Albãni included this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #180.
