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


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 »

Jibril (‘alayhis salam) describes Jahannam


Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said: “Jibril (‘alayhis salam) came to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) at an unusual time. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) stood up and said, ‘O Jibril, why has your complexion changed?’ Jibril (‘alayhis salam) replied, ‘I have only come as Allah has ordered regarding the keys of Jahannam.’ Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) then said, ‘O Jibril, describe the Fire for me!’ He replied, ‘Allah commanded that it burn for a thousand years until it turned white, and then it burned for a thousand years until it turned red and He commanded again that it burn for a thousand years until it turned black. It is black and dark, its embers are never extinguished, its flame never subsides. By Him Who sent you in truth, if the amount of the head of a needle from Jahannam had to be opened, everyone on earth would die from its heat. By Him Who sent you in truth, if one of the garments of the fire had to be hung between the sky and earth, all the inhabitants of earth would die due to the heat.By Him Who sent you in truth, if one of the gatekeepers of Jahannam were to show his face to the people of the world and they gazed at it, they would all die due to the ugliness of his face and his stench. By Him Who sent you in truth, if a link of the chain which Allah has described in His Book, were placed on the mountains of the earth, they would melt.’

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) then said, Enough O Jibril, lest my heart split and I pass away.’ Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) then looked at Jibril who was crying and said, ‘O Jibril, why are you crying whereas you hold [a lofty position] in the sight of Allah.’ Jibril (‘alayhis salam) replied, ‘Why should I not cry? Perhaps in the Knowledge of Allah, I may not be as I am currently. What do I know, perhaps I could be tested just as Iblis was tested, for he was from the angels or perhaps I could be tested just as Harut and Marut were tested…'”

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) sharing a camel on the day of Badr


I remember hearing somewhere that before the battle of Badr, three people used to share one camel, turn by turn. The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) was with Ali and another young Sahabi (radiyallahu ‘anhuma), and the two of them said to the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) that they are young and can walk and that the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wsallam) can ride the camel throughout the journey without sharing. The Messenger of Allah(saw) replied, “As for you being younger that’s true, but we all have the same strength. And as for sharing, don’t I want to earn good deeds like you all do?”
