Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

Jibril (Gabriel) came to the Prophet (Sallallaahu alaihi wa Sallam) and said: “O Muhammad (Sallallaahu alaihi wa Sallam)! Do you feel sick?” He (Sallallaahu alaihi wa Sallam) said, “Yes.” Jibril supplicated thus (i.e., he performed Ruqyah):

Bismillahi arqeek, min kulli shay’in yu’dheek, min sharri kulli nafsin aw ‘aynin haasid, Allaahu yashfeek, Bismillaahi arqeek.

A reminder about an important daily supplication of the Prophet (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) narrated by Ibn Mas’ood and collected in Saheeh Muslim.

أَصْـبَحْنا وَأَصْـبَحَ المُـلْكُ لله وَالحَمدُ لله ، لا إلهَ إلاّ اللّهُ وَحدَهُ لا شَريكَ لهُ، لهُ المُـلكُ ولهُ الحَمْـد، وهُوَ على كلّ شَيءٍ قدير ، رَبِّ أسْـأَلُـكَ خَـيرَ ما في هـذا اليوم وَخَـيرَ ما بَعْـدَه ، وَأَعـوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَـرِّ هـذا اليوم وَشَرِّ ما بَعْـدَه، رَبِّ أَعـوذُبِكَ مِنَ الْكَسَـلِ وَسـوءِ الْكِـبَر ، رَبِّ أَعـوذُبِكَ مِنْ عَـذابٍ في النّـارِ وَعَـذابٍ في القَـبْر 

[مسلم 4/2088 ]

Asbahna wa-asbahal-mulku lillah walhamdu lillah la ilaha illal-lah, wahdahu la shareeka lah, lahul-mulku walahul-hamd, wahuwa ‘ala kulli shayin qadeer, rabbi as-aluka khayra ma fee hatha-alyawmi, wakhayra ma ba‘daho, wa-a‘oothu bika min sharri hatha-alyawmi, washarri ma ba‘daho, rabbi a‘oothu bika minal-kasal, wasoo-il kibar, rabbi a‘oothu bika min ‘athabin fin-nar, wa ‘athabin fil-qabr.

We have reached the morning and at this very time unto Allah belongs all sovereignty, and all praise is for Allah. None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone, without partner, to Him belongs all sovereignty and praise and He is over all things omnipotent. My Lord, I ask You for the good of this day and the good of what follows it and I take refuge in You from the evil of this day and the evil of what follows it. My Lord, I take refuge in You from laziness and senility. My Lord, I take refuge in You from torment in the Fire and punishment in the grave.

In the evening you say, amsayna wa amsal mulku lillah… and you replace ‘hatha-alyawmi’ with hathihil-layla.

He used to supplicate:” O Allah, I seek refuge in Thee from incapacity, from sloth, from cowardice, from miserliness, decrepitude and from torment of the grave. O Allah, grant to my soul the sense of righteousness and purify it, for Thou art the Best Purifier thereof. Thou art the Protecting Friend thereof, and Guardian thereof.(اللَّهُمَّ آتِ نَفْسِي تَقْوَاهَا ، وَزَكِّها أنْتَ خَيْرُ مَنْ زَكَّاهَا ، أنْتَ وَلِيُّهَا وَمَوْلاَهَا )O Allah, I seek refuge in Thee from the knowledge which does not benefit, from the heart that does not entertain the fear (of Allah), from the soul that does not feel contented and the supplication that is not responded.”

Advice to those who rush Tasbeeh(Dhikr) – by Shaykh Albani

Listen / Download Mp3

Source : http://mtws.posthaven.com/advice-to-those-who-rush-dhikr-by-shaykh-alba

Transcription of the Audio :

The above audio is transcribed and prepared by: Abu Summayah (Idiris ibn Ali)

The first issue; I see many of the people those who appear to be committed not only committed to the obligatory acts of worship rather also committed to the optional acts of worship. And those are fards which are recommended such as remembrance Allah after the prayer such as saying Tasbeeh (SubhanAllah), Tahmeed (Alhamdulilaah) and the Takbeer (Allahu Akbar) and things like this.

I see some of them when they want to work by the statement of the Messenger of Allah sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam when he said – << Whoever says “SubhanAllah” after every prayer 33 times, and says “Alhamdulilaah” 33 times and  Allahu Akbar 33 times and then makes it a complete 100 by saying “Laa ilaaha ill-Allaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lah, lahu’l-mulk wa lahu’l-hamd wa huwa ‘ala kulli shay’in qadeer”. Then he shall be forgiven for his sins even if they were like the foam of the ocean>>. And this narration is authentic for it was narrated by Imam Muslim in his Saheeh[1]

When they want to work by this hadeeth, you see some of them not even close to making a distinction with their tongue when saying “SubhanAllah” and “Alhamdulilaah” and “Allahu Akbar”. So what do you hear (and the shaykh starts imitating them by saying “SubhanAllah” very quickly). Have you seen like I have seen, I think you have. I’m not the only one here who seen this so what should we call this sabsabee (meaning what said in this fashion it cannot be called Tasbeeh). And then they go (the shaykh starts imitating them by saying “Alhamdulilaah” very quickly). This is not saying “SubhanAllah”, this is not saying Alhamdulilaah and then they go (the shaykh starts imitating them by saying Allahu Akbar very quickly). In an instance in a second, they have finished the entire 100.

The one who praises Allah hundred times in the afore mentioned manner, what is the reward for this? Allah will forgive him for his sins even if they were like the foam of the ocean?. Is the reward the same for the one who says it in a rush hared manner?, Allah forbid. Therefore it is upon us to take our time and be deliberate and to say “SubhanAllah”, “SubhanAllah”, “SubhanAllah”, “Alhamdulilaah”, “Alhamdulilaah” up until the end..

I do not intend by my speech which I’m about to say to prevent the people from saying SubhanAllah 33 times and praising Allah as is found in the remaining part of the hadeeth. Rather I only intend to bring something for those who rush, something which is Islamically better for them and easier for them to do.

And I think you will be hearing this hadeeth for the very first time or at least some of you will be hearing it for the first time. It is very important hadeeth and it is also hadeeth which is authentic and has collected by Imam An-Naasa’i and Hakim and other then them and has been narrated from two companions with two authentic chains of narrations [2]

A man from the companions of the Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam saw a person in his dream and the person asked him a question – he said “What have you been taught by the Messenger” he said he had taught us “SubhanAllah” and then he mentioned the number we already clarified in the previous hadeeth. And so the person said to the person who is having the dream, make it 25, make it 25 meaning say “SubhanAllah walhamdulillaah, walaa ilaaha illal Allah, wallaahu Akbar” 25 times, say all 4 of them together 25 times. So instead of the person counting out 100, how will he count? He will count out 25 and by counting out 25 like this it’s going to force the person to go slow and he will not be able to rush like the rushing that we have severely criticised. So regardless of how fast the person tries to rush saying “SubhanAllah” he will not be able to because after that he has to say “Alhamdulilaah” so regardless how much he wants to rush, he’s going to have to pronounce the phrases in a more compete manner than if he were to say (the shaykh starts saying “SubhanAllah” very quickly). Just as the one who wants to praise Allah by saying La illaha illa Allah, La illaha illa Allah, La illaha illa Allah and then after a while you hear them praising Allah and it has become Allaah, Allaah, Allaah.. (the Shaykh starts saying Allah, Allah, Allah very quick)

Therefore this is a protection for those individuals who rush after the prayer in making the Tasbeeh and making the Tahmeed. When they do in the manner which is mentioned in the first hadeeth, they rush it so it is upon them to join these four phrases together and to say them 25 times so they will say  “SubhanAllah walhamdulillaah, walaa ilaaha illal Allah, wallaahu Akbar”. They will say this 25 times and this is better according to the text of the hadeeth because this person saw in his dream and there could be a dream which is confused and we aren’t the people who can explain dreams so we don’t know the explanation of it but this man, he saw a vision and he narrated this to the Prophet sallalahu alaihi wa sallam and so his answer to him was “then do it like this, then do it like this”

So now we have a fiqh question, is this abrogating the first hadeeth saying SubhanAllah 33 times, Alhamdulilaah 33 times, Allahu Akbar 33 times and to the end of the hadeeth. No. this is not abrogating it but rather it is a preference, so if the person when he is finished his prayer is able to say the remembrance 33 times in a calm, deliberate manner then there is nothing preventing him from doing this but it will be better to combine these 4 phrases together and say them 25 times “SubhanAllah walhamdulillaah, walaa ilaaha illal Allah, wallaahu Akbar” ..  like this 25 times and this will be better then what appears in the first hadeeth.

Footnotes:
[1] Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) as saying:If anyone extols Allah after every prayer thirty-three times, and praises Allah thirty-three times, and declares His Greatness thirty-three times, ninety-nine times in all, and says to complete a hundred:” There is no god but Allah, having no partner with Him, to Him belongs sovereignty and to Him is praise due, and He is Potent over everything,” his sins will be forgiven even If these are as abundant as the foam of the sea. [Sahih Muslim in the Book of Prayers]

حَدَّثَنِي عَبْدُ الْحَمِيدِ بْنُ بَيَانٍ الْوَاسِطِيُّ، أَخْبَرَنَا خَالِدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، عَنْ سُهَيْلٍ، عَنْ أَبِي عُبَيْدٍ الْمَذْحِجِيِّ، – قَالَ مُسْلِمٌ أَبُو عُبَيْدٍ مَوْلَى سُلَيْمَانَ بْنِ عَبْدِ الْمَلِكِ – عَنْ عَطَاءِ بْنِ يَزِيدَ اللَّيْثِيِّ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ ”‏ مَنْ سَبَّحَ اللَّهَ فِي دُبُرِ كُلِّ صَلاَةٍ ثَلاَثًا وَثَلاَثِينَ وَحَمِدَ اللَّهَ ثَلاَثًا وَثَلاَثِينَ وَكَبَّرَ اللَّهَ ثَلاَثًا وَثَلاَثِينَ فَتِلْكَ تِسْعَةٌ وَتِسْعُونَ وَقَالَ تَمَامَ الْمِائَةِ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيرٌ غُفِرَتْ خَطَايَاهُ وَإِنْ كَانَتْ مِثْلَ زَبَدِ الْبَحْرِ ‏”‏ ‏.‏

[2] It was narrated from Ibn ‘Umar radi-Allah an’ that : A man saw in a dream that it was said to him: “What does your Prophet (salalahu alaihi salam) command you to do?” He said: “He commanded us to say Tasbih thirty-three times following the prayer, and to say the tahmid thirty-three times, and to say the takbir thirty-four times, and that makes one-hundred.” He said: Say the tasbih twenty-five times and say the tahmid twenty-five times and say the takbir twenty-five times and say the tahlil twenty-five times, and that will make one hundred.” The following morning he told the Prophet (salalahu alaihi salam) about that and the Messenger of Allah (salalahu alaihi salam) said: “Do what the Ansari said.” (Hasan) [Sunan An-Nasa’i in the book of forgetfulness of Prayer). There is also another narration of the hadeeth by Zaid ibn Thabit
أَخْبَرَنَا عُبَيْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ عَبْدِ الْكَرِيمِ أَبُو زُرْعَةَ الرَّازِيُّ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ يُونُسَ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي عَلِيُّ بْنُ الْفُضَيْلِ بْنِ عِيَاضٍ، عَنْ عَبْدِ الْعَزِيزِ بْنِ أَبِي رَوَّادٍ، عَنْ نَافِعٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ، أَنَّ رَجُلاً، رَأَى فِيمَا يَرَى النَّائِمُ قِيلَ لَهُ بِأَىِّ شَىْءٍ أَمَرَكُمْ نَبِيُّكُمْ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ أَمَرَنَا أَنْ نُسَبِّحَ ثَلاَثًا وَثَلاَثِينَ وَنَحْمَدَ ثَلاَثًا وَثَلاَثِينَ وَنُكَبِّرَ أَرْبَعًا وَثَلاَثِينَ فَتِلْكَ مِائَةٌ ‏.‏ قَالَ سَبِّحُوا خَمْسًا وَعِشْرِينَ وَاحْمَدُوا خَمْسًا وَعِشْرِينَ وَكَبِّرُوا خَمْسًا وَعِشْرِينَ وَهَلِّلُوا خَمْسًا وَعِشْرِينَ فَتِلْكَ مِائَةٌ فَلَمَّا أَصْبَحَ ذَكَرَ ذَلِكَ لِلنَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ ”‏ افْعَلُوا كَمَا قَالَ الأَنْصَارِيُّ ‏”‏ ‏.‏

Those Who Supplicate For Their Families And Offspring

وَٱلَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا هَبۡ لَنَا مِنۡ أَزۡوَٲجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّـٰتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعۡيُنٍ۬ وَٱجۡعَلۡنَا لِلۡمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا (٧٤)

<<And  those who say: O our Lord ,grant us from our wives and offspring comfort to our eyes, and make us leaders who followed upon good by those dutiful Allaah.>> (25:74)

Shaikh ‘Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Naasir as –Sa’dee raimahullaah said that,

وَٱلَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا هَبۡ لَنَا مِنۡ أَزۡوَٲجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّـٰتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعۡيُنٍ۬ وَٱجۡعَلۡنَا

<< And those who say : O our Lord ,grant us from our wives..>>

Means ‘Our friends, our companions and wives’

وَذُرِّيَّـٰتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعۡيُنٍ۬

<<…and our offspring comfort to our eyes,>> means that they bring joy to our eyes.

If we study the condition and attributes of the slave of Most Merciful, we will know from their concern and from their high standing that joy would not be brought to their eyes unless they saw that they were people who are obedient to their Lord, upon knowledge and action.

Just as this is a supplication for the rectification of their wives and offspring, it is also a supplication for themselves, since its benefit returns to them. It is this reason that they take it to be a gift granted to them and therefore say,

هَبۡ لَنَا

<<…grant us (as a gift).>> Indeed their supplication brings benefit to the Muslims in general, since the rectification of those mentioned is a means of rectifying many other people who have a connection to them, and so benefit from them.

وَٱجۡعَلۡنَا لِلۡمُتَّقِينَ

<<… and make us leaders who are followed upon good by those dutiful to Allaah,>> Then meaning of this is ‘O Lord, cause us to reach this high level’- the level of Siddeeqoon (the true and sincere followers of the Messengers, who attest to the truth) and the most complete of the righteous slaves of Allaah, which is the level of leadership in the Religion. They ask that, in their sayings and their actions, they should be made an example for those dutiful to Allaah, that their actions should be followed, that the people have confidence in their sayings, and that the people of good follow on behind then so that they, themselves are upon the guidance and give guidance to others.

As is known a supplication to attain something is also a supplication to whatever is essential to achieve its attainment. This level of leadership in religion cannot be achieved except by means of patient perseverance (sabr) and certain faith (Yaqeen, as He, The Most High, said:

وَجَعَلۡنَا مِنۡہُمۡ أَٮِٕمَّةً۬ يَہۡدُونَ بِأَمۡرِنَا لَمَّا صَبَرُواْ‌ۖ وَڪَانُواْ بِـَٔايَـٰتِنَا يُوقِنُونَ (٢٤

<<And we made from them leaders who were followed upon good, when they had patience and certain Faith in Our Signs>>[Sooratus-Sajdah(32):24]

This supplication therefore necessitates deeds , and patience upon obedience to Allaah; upon avoiding disobedience to Him; upon that which He has decreed to occur that is painful and upon complete knowledge which leads the person to the level of certain Faith(Yaqeen).Thus it results in the bountiful good and abundant award that they should be upon a level which, after then Messengers, is the highest possible level for the creation. Therefore, He will reward them with the highest levels.

Tafseer Ibn Kathir

(74. And those who say: “Our Lord! Bestow on us from our wives and our offspring the comfort of our eyes, and make us leaders of those who have Taqwa.”)

His saying:

(And those who say: “Our Lord! Bestow on us from our wives and our offspring the comfort of our eyes…”) means those who ask Allah to bring forth from their loins offspring who will obey Him and worship Him and not associate anything in worship with Him. Ibn `Abbas said, “This means (offspring) who will strive to obey Allah and bring them joy in this world and the Hereafter.”

Imam Ahmad recorded that Jubayr bin Nufayr said: “We sat with Al-Miqdad bin Al-Aswad one day, and a man passed by and said, “How blessed are these two eyes which saw the Messenger of Allah ! Would that we had seen what you saw and witnessed what you witnessed.” Al-Miqdad got angry, and I was surprised, because the man had not said anything but good. Then he turned to him and said, “What makes a man wish to be present when Allah had caused him to be absent, and he does not know how he would have behaved if he had been there By Allah, there are people who saw the Messenger of Allah , and Allah will throw them on their faces in Hell because they did not accept him or believe in him. Are you not grateful that Allah brought you forth from your mothers’ wombs believing in your Lord and in what your Prophet brought, and that the test went to others and not to you Allah sent His Prophet during the most difficult time that any Prophet was ever sent, after a long period of ignorance, when the people could see no better religion than the worship of idols, and he brought the Criterion which distinguishes truth from falsehood and which would separate a father from his son. A man would realize that his father, son or brother was a disbeliever, and since Allah had opened his heart to Faith, he knew that if his relative died he would go to Hell, so he could not rest knowing that his loved one was in the Fire. This is what Allah referred to in the Ayah,

(And those who say: “Our Lord! Bestow on us from our wives and our offspring the comfort of our eyes…”) Its chain of narrators is Sahih, although they did not report it.

(and make us leaders of those who have Taqwa.) Ibn `Abbas, Al-Hasan, As-Suddi, Qatadah and Rabi` bin Anas said: “Leaders who would be taken as examples in good.” Others said: “Guides who would call others to goodness.” They wanted their worship to be connected to the worship of their children and offspring, and their guidance to go beyond themselves and benefit others. This would be more rewarding and a better end, as it was recorded in Sahih Muslim from Abu Hurayrah, may Allah be pleased with him, that the Messenger of Allah said:

(When a son of Adam dies, his deeds cease apart from three: a righteous child who will pray for him, knowledge from which others may benefit after him, or ongoing charity.)

Nuh (peace be upon him) said :
(My Lord! Forgive me, and my parents, and him who enters my home as a believer,) Ad-Dahhak said, “This means, my Masjid.” However, there is no harm in understanding the Ayah according to its apparent meaning, which would be that he (Nuh) supplicated for every person who entered his house who was a believer. Then he said,

(and all the believing men and women.) He supplicated for all of the believing men and women, and that includes those of them who were living and those of them who were dead. For this reason, it is recommended to supplicate like this, in following the example of Nuh, and that which has been reported in the narrations and well-known, legislated supplications.

Ubaadah ibn as-Saamit radiallaahu ’anhu related that the Prophet sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam said:

Tafseer Ibn Kathir : Surah Al Baqarah Ayah 201

The Order for Remembrance of Allah and seeking Good in this Life and the Hereafter

(200. So when you have accomplished your Manasik, remember Allah as you remember your forefathers or with far more remembrance. But of mankind there are some who say: “Our Lord! Give us (Your bounties) in this world!” and for such there will be no portion in the Hereafter.) (201. And of them there are some who say: “Our Lord! Give us in this world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good, and save us from the torment of the Fire!”) (202. For them there will be alloted a share for what they have earned. And Allah is swift at reckoning.)

Allah commands that He be remembered after the rituals are performed.
(…as you remember your forefathers)

Sa`id bin Jubayr said that Ibn `Abbas said, “During the time of Jahiliyyah, people used to stand during the (Hajj) season, and one of them would say, `My father used to feed (the poor), help others (end their disputes, with his money), pay the Diyah (i.e., blood money),’ and so forth. The only Dhikr that they had was that they would remember the deeds of their fathers. Allah then revealed to Muhammad :

(Remember Allah as you remember your forefathers or with far more remembrance.)

Therefore, remembering Allah the Exalted and Ever High is always encouraged. We should mention that when Allah used “or” in the Ayah, He meant to encourage the people to remember Him more than they remember their forefathers, not that the word entails a doubt (as to which is larger or bigger). This statement is similar to the Ayat:

(…as stones or even worse in hardness) (2:74) and,
(. ..fear men as they fear Allah or even more) (4:77) and,
(And We sent him to a hundred thousand (people) or even more) (37:147) and,
(And was at a distance of two bows’ length or (even) nearer.) (53:9)

Allah encourages calling Him in supplication after remembering Him, because this will make it more likely that the supplication will be accepted. Allah also criticizes those who only supplicate to Him about the affairs of this life, while ignoring the affairs of the Hereafter. Allah said:

(But of mankind there are some who say: “Our Lord! Give us (Your bounties) in this world!” and for such there will be no portion in the Hereafter.) qmeaning, they have no share in the Hereafter. This criticism serves to discourage other people from imitating those mentioned.

Sa`id bin Jubayr said that Ibn `Abbas said, “Some bedouins used to come to the standing area (`Arafat) and supplicate saying, `O Allah! Make it a rainy year, a fertile year and a year of good child bearing.’ They would not mention any of the affairs of the Hereafter. Thus, Allah revealed about them:

(But of mankind there are some who say: “Our Lord! Give us (Your bounties) in this world!” and for such there will be no portion in the Hereafter.)

The believers who came after them used to say:
(Our Lord! Give us in this world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good, and save us from the torment of the Fire!”)

Next, Allah revealed:
(For them there will be alloted a share for what they have earned. And Allah is swift at reckoning.)

Hence, Allah praised those who ask for the affairs of both this life and the Hereafter. He said:
(And of them there are some who say: “Our Lord! Give us in this world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good, and save us from the torment of the Fire!”)

The supplication mentioned and praised in the Ayah includes all good aspects of this life and seeks refuge from all types of evil. The good of this life concerns every material request of well-being, spacious dwelling, pleasing mates, sufficient provision, beneficial knowledge, good profession or deeds, comfortable means of transportation and good praise, all of which the scholars of Tafsir have mentioned regarding this subject. All of these are but a part of the good that is sought in this life. As for the good of the Hereafter, the best of this includes acquiring Paradise, which also means acquiring safety from the greatest horror at the gathering place. It also refers to being questioned lightly and the other favors in the Hereafter.

As for acquiring safety from the Fire, it includes being directed to what leads to this good end in this world, such as avoiding the prohibitions, sins of all kinds and doubtful matters.

Al-Qasim bin `Abdur-Rahman said,

“Whoever is gifted with a grateful heart, a remembering tongue and a patient body, will have been endowed with a good deed in this life, a good deed in the Hereafter and saved from the torment of the Fire.”

This is why the Sunnah encourages reciting this Du`a’ (i.e., in the Ayah about gaining a good deed in this life and the Hereafter). Al-Bukhari reported that Anas bin Malik narrated that the Prophet used to say:

(O Allah, our Lord! Give us that which is good in this life, that which is good in the Hereafter and save us from the torment of the Fire.)

Imam Ahmad reported that Anas said,

“Allah’s Messenger visited a Muslim man who had become as weak as a sick small bird. Allah’s Messenger said to him, `Were you asking or supplicating to Allah about something’ He said, `Yes. I used to say: O Allah! Whatever punishment you saved for me in the Hereafter, give it to me in this life.’ Allah’s Messenger said:

((All praise is due to Allah! You cannot bear it -or stand it-. You should have said: (Our Lord! Give us in this world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good, and save us from the torment of the Fire!))

The man began reciting this Du`a and he was cured.” Muslim also recorded it.

Al-Hakim reported that Sa`id bin Jubayr said, “A man came to Ibn `Abbas and said, `I worked for some people and settled for a part of my compensation in return for their taking me to perform Hajj with them. Is this acceptable’ Ibn `Abbas said, `You are among those whom Allah described:

(For them there will be alloted a share for what they have earned. And Allah is swift at reckoning.)

Al-Hakim then commented; “This Hadith is authentic according to the criteria of the Two Shaykhs (Al-Bukhari and Muslim) although they did not record it.”

Be more concerned that your actions are accepted than your concern of performing the action itself

The Salaf worked diligently in perfecting their actions and making them faultless, then after that, they showed great concern for acceptance of their actions. They did this because they feared that their actions would be rejected. They are those who gave what was incumbent upon them while their hearts were in a state of fear. It is reported that ‘Ali bin Abi Talib (radiallaahu ‘anhu) said:

Be more concerned that your actions are accepted than your concern of performing the action itself. Did you not hear the statement of Allaah:

Verily Allaah only accepts the actions of the Mutaqeen (pious).

Fudalah said: For me to know that Allaah has accepted from me an action the size of a mustard seed is more beloved to me than this world and everything within it. This is because of the statement of Allaah:

Verily Allaah only accepts the actions of the Mutaqeen (pious).

Malik bin Dinar said: Fear that an action is not accepted is more difficult than performing the action itself.

‘Ataa as Sulamee stated: The pious fear that their righteous actions were not done sincerely for Allaah.

‘Abdul ‘Azeez ibn Abee Ruwaad said: I have met people very diligent in performing actions, and upon completion of those actions they are faced with sadness in fear of the action being accepted or not.

The Salaf would supplicate 6 months to Allaah to allow them to reach the month of Ramadan, and then upon completion of the month, they would again supplicate 6 months (begging) for acceptance of their fast.

Some of the Salaf would display sadness on the day of ‘Eid. It was said to them: This is a day of happiness and joy! They would respond: You have spoken the truth, but I am a servant, my Lord has ordered me to perform an action but I am not sure if He will accept it from me or not.

Wahb noticed people laughing on the day of ‘Eid, upon seeing this he stated: If their fast was accepted, then know that this is not the action of those who are grateful, and if it was not accepted, then this is not the action of those who are afraid.

Hasan (al-Basree) stated: Indeed Allaah has made Ramadan a means of gain for His creation. (Within this month) they race to gain His pleasure through obedience to Him. Some individuals will gain (win), while others will remain back and lose. It is amazing to see a person playing and laughing on a day that the good doers will be rewarded, and the wrong doers will be defeated.

It is reported that Hasan al-Basree said:

The believer does the best deeds yet is most fearful [that his deeds will not be accepted]. If he were to spend a mountain of wealth [in charity], he would not feel sure [of the reward] until he sees it. The more righteous and pious he becomes, the more he fears.

But the hypocrite (munaafiq) says, ‘There are so many people, I will be forgiven, no problem.’ So he does wrong and evil deeds, yet holds foolish wishes about Allaah.

Most Superior way of asking for Forgiveness from Allah

The Messenger of Allaah may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him said :

Indeed the major supplication for forgiveness is to say :

اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ رَبِّي لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ خَلَقْتَنِي وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ وَأَنَا عَلَى عَهْدِكَ وَوَعْدِكَ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا صَنَعْتُ أَبُوءُ لَكَ بِذَنْبِي وَأَبُوءُ لَكَ بِنِعْمَتِكَ عَلَيَّ فَاغْفِرْ لِي فَإِنَّهُ لَا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ

Allaahumma anta rabbee, la ilaha illa anta, Khalaqtanee,

wa ana abduka, wa ana ala ahdika wa wadika

mastatatu, aouthu bika min sharri ma sanatu,

aboou laka binimatika alayya, wa aboou bitahmbee,

faghfirlee fainnahu la yaghfiru ath-thunooba illa anta

[ Sahih Bukhari Vol.8 Hadith no:318]

O Allaah You are my Lord, there is none worthy of worship in truth except You, You created me and I am Your slave and I am abiding to Your covenant and promise as best as I can, I seek refuge in You from the evil that I have committed, I profess to you my sins and I acknowledge Your favour upon me, so forgive me verily no one forgives sins except you.

So if the worshipper says this when the morning arrives, truly believing init and he dies enters Paradise, and if he says this when the evening arrives truly believing in it enters Paradise.
