Du’as

Wording in the narrations regarding three people whose du’as are readily accepted

Question

I have come across the following narrations in Sunan Tirmidhi, Adabul Mufrad, and Sunan ibn Majah with a slight variation in wording. The first two have the words على ولده whilst the third has لولده. Are both versions correct?

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رضي الله عنه قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم: ثَلاَثُ دَعَوَاتٍ مُسْتَجَابَاتٌ لاَ شَكَّ فِيهِنَّ دَعْوَةُ الْمَظْلُومِ وَدَعْوَةُ الْمُسَافِرِ وَدَعْوَةُ الْوَالِدِ عَلَى وَلَدِهِ

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1905)

 

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رضي الله عنه عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ‏:‏ ثَلاَثُ دَعَوَاتٍ مُسْتَجَابَاتٍ‏ دَعْوَةُ الْمَظْلُومِ، وَدَعْوَةُ الْمُسَافِرِ، وَدَعْوَةُ الْوَالِدِ عَلَى وَلَدِهِ‏

(Aladabul Mufrad, Hadith: 32)

 

 عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رضي الله عنه قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم: ‏ثَلاَثُ دَعَوَاتٍ يُسْتَجَابُ لَهُنَّ لاَ شَكَّ فِيهِنَّ دَعْوَةُ الْمَظْلُومِ وَدَعْوَةُ الْمُسَافِرِ وَدَعْوَةُ الْوَالِدِ لِوَلَدِهِ

Nabi’s (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) beautiful, comprehensive du’a for the Sahabah

Question

Is following Hadith authentic?

It was narrated that Sayyiduna Abu Umamah Al-Bahili (radiyallahu ‘anu) said: Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) came out to us, leaning on a stick, and when we saw him, we stood up.

He said: ‘Do not do what the Persians do for their leaders.’

We said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, why don’t you pray to Allah for us?’

He said: ‘Allahummaghfirlana, warhamna, wardha ‘anna, wa taqabbal minna, wa adkhilnal-jannah, wa najjina minan-nar, wa aslih lana sha-nana kullah.

 اَللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لَنَا وَارْحَمْنَا, وَارْضَ عَنَّا, وَتَقَبَّلْ مِنَّا, وَأَدْخِلْنَا الْجَنَّةَ, وَنَجِّنَا مِنَ النَّارِ, وَأَصْلِحْ لَنَا شَأْنَنَا كُلَّهُ

[O Allah, forgive us and have mercy on us, be pleased with us and accept (our good deeds) from us, admit us into Jannah [Paradise] and save us from Jahannam [Hell], and rectify all our affairs].’

It was as if we wanted him to say more, but he said: ‘Have I not summed up everything for you?’ Read More »

Difference in wording of a du’a in Riyadus Salihin

Question

I came across the following du’a in two places: Tirmidhi (3502) and Riyadus Salihin (834).

Tirmidhi:

اللَّهُمَّ اقْسِمْ لَنَا مِنْ خَشْيَتِكَ مَا يَحُولُ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَ مَعَاصِيكَ وَمِنْ طَاعَتِكَ مَا تُبَلِّغُنَا بِهِ جَنَّتَكَ وَمِنَ الْيَقِينِ مَا تُهَوِّنُ بِهِ عَلَيْنَا مُصِيبَاتِ الدُّنْيَا وَمَتِّعْنَا بِأَسْمَاعِنَا وَأَبْصَارِنَا وَقُوَّتِنَا مَا أَحْيَيْتَنَا وَاجْعَلْهُ الْوَارِثَ مِنَّا وَاجْعَلْ ثَأْرَنَا عَلَى مَنْ ظَلَمَنَا وَانْصُرْنَا عَلَى مَنْ عَادَانَا وَلاَ تَجْعَلْ مُصِيبَتَنَا فِي دِينِنَا وَلاَ تَجْعَلِ الدُّنْيَا أَكْبَرَ هَمِّنَا وَلاَ مَبْلَغَ عِلْمِنَا وَلاَ تُسَلِّطْ عَلَيْنَا مَنْ لاَ يَرْحَمُنَا ‏”‏ ‏

Riyadus Salihin:

اللهم اقسم لنا من خشيتك ما تحول به بيننا وبين معاصيك، ومن طاعتك ما تبلغنا به جنتك، ومن اليقين ما تهون به علينا مصائب الدنيا، اللهم متعنا بأسماعنا وأبصارنا وقوتنا ما أحييتنا، واجعله الوارث منا، واجعل ثأرنا على من ظلمنا، وانصرنا على من عادانا، ولا تجعل مصيبتنا في ديننا، ولا تجعل الدنيا أكبر همنا، ولا مبلغ علمنا، ولا تسلط علينا من لا يرحمنا

a) The riwayah of Tirmidhi contains the word مصيبات while the riwayah of Riyadus Salihin (which quotes Tirmidhi) contains مصائب. Which is the correct version?

b) Also the riwayah of Tirmidhi contains و متّعنا while the riwayah of Riyadus Salihin contains اللهم متّعنا. Which is the correct version?

The Ismul A’azam in three Surahs

Question

What is the reference and authenticity of this Hadith?

Sayyiduna Abu Umamah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) says that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) stated: “The Ismul A’azam [blessed Name of Allah Ta’ala which when taken, Allah responds] appears in three Surahs of the Quran; Surah Baqarah, Surah Aalu ‘Imran and Surah Taha.”

Question

With regards to the comprehensive du’a of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), I have come across the following narration:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّا نَسْأَلُكَ مِمَّا سَأَلَكَ نَبِيُّكَ مُحَمَّدٌ صلى الله عليه وسلم، وَنَسْتَعِيذُكَ مِمَّا اسْتَعَاذَكَ مِنْهُ نَبِيُّكَ مُحَمَّدٌ صلى الله عليه وسلم، اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ الْمُسْتَعَانُ وَعَلَيْكَ الْبَلاَغُ، وَلاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِاللَّهِ‏
