Asking Allah for the ability to do good

Asking Allah for the ability to do good

 

Muadh Ibn Jabal, Allah be pleased with him narrates that one morning the Messenger of Allah, Allah send peace and blessings upon him was prevented from coming out to us for the Morning prayer (Fajr) until we almost saw the sun. He then came out quickly and the Iqamah was given. The Messenger of Allah, Allah send peace and blessings upon him then lead the prayer and relatively quickly and after the Salam he called out to us and said ”Stay in your rows as you are”. He then turned to us and said ” Listen well! I will inform you about what kept me from you this morning. I stood at night, made Wudhu and prayed what had been destined for me to read and then fell into a deep sleep during my prayer. I was then in front of my Lord, blessed and exalted is He in the best of appearances and He said, ”O Muhammad!”, I replied ”I am here My lord”, He said ”What are the high Angels discussing?”, I replied ”I do not know my Lord”, this was repeated three times. The Messenger of Allah said ”I then saw Allah place his palm ( as is befitting for his majesty) between my shoulders until I felt the coolness of his fingertips on my chest. Everything then became clear to me and I became aware, He then said to me ”O Muhammad!”, I replied ”I am here my Lord”, He again asked me ”What are the high angels discussing?”, I replied ”They are discussing those acts which wipe away sin”. Allah said ”What are they?”. I replied ”Walking towards the congregational prayer, staying seated in the Masjid after the prayer and making wudhu properly despite difficulties”. Allah said ‘‘then what else?’’ I replied ‘‘feeding others, talking politely and praying Salah at night when people are asleep”. Allah then said ”Ask!” and so I supplicated: 


O Allah! I ask You to give me the ability to do good deeds and to leave bad deeds, love for the poor and that You forgive me and have mercy on me, and when you are to afflict a nation with a trial (Fitnah), then take me back (to You) without being afflicted with this trial. I ask You for Your love, the love of those who love You and love for actions which will draw me closer to Your love


حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ بَشَّارٍ قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا مُعَاذُ بْنُ هَانِئٍ أَبُو هَانِئٍ اليَشْكُرِيُّ قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا جَهْضَمُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، عَنْ يَحْيَى بْنِ أَبِي كَثِيرٍ، عَنْ زَيْدِ بْنِ سَلَّامٍ، عَنْ أَبِي سَلَّامٍ، عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ عَائِشٍ الحَضْرَمِيِّ، أَنَّهُ حَدَّثَهُ عَنْ مَالِكِ بْنِ يَخَامِرَ السَّكْسَكِيِّ، عَنْ مُعَاذِ بْنِ جَبَلٍ قَالَ:


احْتُبِسَ عَنَّا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ذَاتَ غَدَاةٍ مِنْ صَلَاةِ الصُّبْحِ حَتَّى كِدْنَا نَتَرَاءَى عَيْنَ الشَّمْسِ، فَخَرَجَ سَرِيعًا فَثُوِّبَ بِالصَّلَاةِ، فَصَلَّى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَتَجَوَّزَ فِي صَلَاتِهِ، فَلَمَّا سَلَّمَ دَعَا بِصَوْتِهِ فَقَالَ لَنَا: «عَلَى مَصَافِّكُمْ كَمَا أَنْتُمْ» ثُمَّ انْفَتَلَ إِلَيْنَا فَقَالَ: ” أَمَا إِنِّي سَأُحَدِّثُكُمْ مَا حَبَسَنِي عَنْكُمُ الغَدَاةَ: أَنِّي قُمْتُ مِنَ اللَّيْلِ فَتَوَضَّأْتُ فَصَلَّيْتُ مَا قُدِّرَ لِي فَنَعَسْتُ فِي صَلَاتِي فَاسْتَثْقَلْتُ، فَإِذَا أَنَا بِرَبِّي تَبَارَكَ وَتَعَالَى فِي أَحْسَنِ صُورَةٍ، فَقَالَ: يَا مُحَمَّدُ قُلْتُ: لَبَّيْكَ رَبِّ، قَالَ: فِيمَ يَخْتَصِمُ المَلَأُ الأَعْلَى؟ قُلْتُ: لَا أَدْرِي رَبِّ، قَالَهَا ثَلَاثًا ” قَالَ: ” فَرَأَيْتُهُ وَضَعَ كَفَّهُ بَيْنَ كَتِفَيَّ حَتَّى وَجَدْتُ بَرْدَ أَنَامِلِهِ بَيْنَ ثَدْيَيَّ، فَتَجَلَّى لِي كُلُّ شَيْءٍ وَعَرَفْتُ، فَقَالَ: يَا مُحَمَّدُ، قُلْتُ: لَبَّيْكَ رَبِّ، قَالَ: فِيمَ يَخْتَصِمُ المَلَأُ الأَعْلَى؟ قُلْتُ: فِي الكَفَّارَاتِ، قَالَ: مَا هُنَّ؟ قُلْتُ: مَشْيُ الأَقْدَامِ إِلَى الجَمَاعَاتِ، وَالجُلُوسُ فِي المَسَاجِدِ بَعْدَ الصَّلَوَاتِ، وَإِسْبَاغُ الوُضُوءِ فِي المَكْرُوهَاتِ، قَالَ: ثُمَّ فِيمَ؟ قُلْتُ: إِطْعَامُ الطَّعَامِ، وَلِينُ الكَلَامِ، وَالصَّلَاةُ بِاللَّيْلِ وَالنَّاسُ نِيَامٌ. قَالَ: سَلْ. قُلْتُ:


اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ فِعْلَ الخَيْرَاتِ، وَتَرْكَ المُنْكَرَاتِ، وَحُبَّ المَسَاكِينِ، وَأَنْ تَغْفِرَ لِي وَتَرْحَمَنِي، وَإِذَا أَرَدْتَ فِتْنَةً فِي قَوْمٍ فَتَوَفَّنِي غَيْرَ مَفْتُونٍ، وَأَسْأَلُكَ حُبَّكَ وَحُبَّ مَنْ يُحِبُّكَ، وَحُبَّ عَمَلٍ يُقَرِّبُ إِلَى حُبِّكَ


قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: «إِنَّهَا حَقٌّ فَادْرُسُوهَا ثُمَّ تَعَلَّمُوهَا»
«هَذَا حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ صَحِيحٌ» سَأَلْتُ مُحَمَّدَ بْنَ إِسْمَاعِيلَ، عَنْ هَذَا الحَدِيثِ، فَقَالَ: «هَذَا حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ صَحِيحٌ»(رواه الترمذي، باب و من سورة ص ، ح/٣٢٣٥)
