“By Allah…”

Salamualaykum,
لَقَدۡ جَآءَڪُمۡ رَسُولٌ۬ مِّنۡ أَنفُسِڪُمۡ عَزِيزٌ عَلَيۡهِ مَا عَنِتُّمۡ حَرِيصٌ عَلَيۡڪُم بِٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ رَءُوفٌ۬ رَّحِيمٌ۬
{“Verily, there has come to you a Messenger from amongst yourselves. It grieves him that you should experience any injury or difficulty. He is anxious over you; for the believers, he is full of pity, kind, and merciful.”
[at-Tawbah (9):128]

A’ishah narrated:

“Once, when I saw the Prophet in a good mood, I said to him: “O Messenger of Allah! Supplicate to Allah for me!”

So, he said: “O Allah! Forgive ‘A’ishah her past and future sins, what she has hidden, as well as what she has made apparent.”

So, I began smiling, to the point that my head fell into my lap out of joy.

The Messenger of Allah said to me: “Does my supplication make you happy?”

I replied: “And how can your supplication not make me happy?”

He then said: “By Allah, it is the supplication that I make for my Ummah in every prayer.”“

[Reported in ‘Sahih Mawarid adh-Dhaman’ (1875), and it is in ‘as-Silsilah as-Sahihah’ (2254)]

Let’s struggle to prove our love for our Messenger by remembering him, acting upon his every sunnah, and truly following his footsteps despite the minor hardships in the path. Salallahu ‘alayhi wasallam.

      Funny thing, I’ve actually had that article opened on my browser for like 3 days, just haven’t had time to read it but I plan to inshaAllah (as soon as I’m done writing this policy brief!) :)

      Jazakillah khair for stopping by and sharing the link.
