Verily all praise belongs to Allah. We praise Him, seek help from Him, ask His forgiveness and ask His guidance. And we ask Allah’s protection against the evil of ourselves and the evil of our deeds. Whosoever Allah guides, there will be no misguidance for him, and whosoever He leads astray, there is no guidance for him.
And I bear witness that there is no god but Allah alone. He has no partner. And I bear witness that Muhammad is his servant and messenger.
“O you who believe fear Allah as He ought to be feared. And do not die except as Muslims.” [Surah Aal Imraan: 102]
“O mankind fear your Lord who created you from a single soul, and from him (Adam), He created his wife (Hawwa) and from them both He created many men and women and fear Allah through whom you demand your mutual (rights), and (do not cut the relations of) the wombs (kinship). Surely, Allah is Ever an all-Watcher over you.” [Surah Nisaa: 1]
“O you who believe fear Allah and speak (always) the truth. He will direct you to do good deeds and will forgive you your sins. And whosoever obeys Allah and His messenger he has indeed achieved a great achievement.” [Surah Ahzaab: 70]
Thereafter, O group of believers:
I advise myself first, then I advise you to fear Allah – Glorified and Majestic – in private and public.
Brothers in faith:
In the authentic (Hadeeth) narrated by Anas bin Malik – may Allah be pleased with him – who said: “A man came to the messenger of Allah ﷺ and said: ‘O messenger of Allah, when is the Hour (Day of Judgement)?‘ So the prophet ﷺ said: ‘And what did you prepare for the Hour?‘ He said: ‘The love of Allah and His messenger.‘ So the prophet ﷺ said: ‘Then you will be with whom you love.‘” Anas – may Allah be pleased with him – said: “There was nothing that pleased us more, besides Islam, than the saying of the prophet ﷺ ‘Then you will be with whom you love’” Anas – may Allah be pleased with him – said: “So I love Allah and His messenger, and Abu Bakr and ‘Umar, so I hope I will be with them, even though I have not done the deeds they have done.”
Verily the love of the prophet – O servants of Allah – is a deed of the heart and among the greatest deeds of the heart, and a slave is not a believer until the prophet ﷺ becomes more beloved to him than himself, his children, his parents and all people. And how can he ﷺ not be loved, may my father and mother be sacrificed for him, while he is the one through whom Allah has removed us from the darkness into the light, and from misguidance into guidance, leaving us on a clear proof, its night distinct from its day, none waivers from it except that he is destroyed.
“And thus We have revealed to you an inspiration of Our command. You did not know what is the Book or [what is] faith, but We have made it a light by which We guide whom We will of Our servants. And indeed, [O Muhammad], you guide to a straight path – The path of Allah, to whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Unquestionably, to Allah do [all] matters evolve.” [Surah Shoora: 52-53]
And in saheeh Muslim, it is reported that the prophet ﷺ recited the saying of Allah – Glorified and Majestic – regarding Ibraheem عليه السلام: “My Lord, indeed they have led astray many among the people. So whoever follows me – then he is of me; and whoever disobeys me – indeed, You are [yet] Forgiving and Merciful.” [Ibraheem, Verse 36] and Eesa عليه السلام said: “If You should punish them – indeed they are Your servants; but if You forgive them – indeed it is You who is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.” [Surah Maa’idah: 118], then he – may my mother and father be sacrificed for him – raised his hands and said: “O Allah! My nation! My nation!“, then he ﷺ cried. Then Allah – Glorified and Majestic – said: ‘O Jibril, go to Muhammad, and your Lord knows best, and ask him what makes you cry?’ Then Jibril عليه السلام came to him and asked him and he informed Him of what the messenger of Allah ﷺ said. Then Allah said: ‘O Jibril, go to Muhammad, and say: ‘we will please you with your nation and we will not harm you.”
And how can we not love him ﷺ while he used to wish to see us?! And in saheeh Muslim it is narrated that the messenger of Allah ﷺ said towards the end of his life: “I wish we could see our brethren.” They (companions) said: “Are we not your brethren, O messenger of Allah?” He said: “You are my companions, and our brethren are those who have not yet come.”
And how much he ﷺ was harmed in order that his call may reach us, and his message may be conveyed to us, and how much was he besieged and prevented, and his companions were killed, his skull was fractured, his molar was broken, and ﷺ was patient with his people.
And in the two authentics (Bukhari and Muslim), Ayesha – may Allah be pleased with her – said to the prophet ﷺ “O messenger of Allah, was there a more difficult day on you than the day of Uhud?” He – may my father and mother be sacrificed for him (peace be upon him) – said : “Indeed I experienced them (dangers) at the hands of your people. The hardest treatment I met from them was on the Day of ‘Aqabah when I went to Ibn ‘Abd Yalil with the purpose of inviting him to Islam, but he did not respond (to my call). So I departed with deep distress. I did not recover until I arrived at Qarn ath Tha’alib. There I raised my head and saw a cloud which had cast its shadow on me. I saw in it Jibril who called me and said: ‘Indeed Allah – the Exalted – heard what your people said to you and the response they gave you. And He has sent you the angel in charge of the mountains to order him to do to them what you wish.‘ Then the angel of the mountains called me, greeted me and said: ‘O Muhammad, Allah listened to what your people had said to you. I am the angel of the mountains, and my Lord has sent me to you so that you may give me your orders. If you wish, I will bring together the two mountains that stand opposite each other to crush them in between.'” But the messenger of Allah said: “I rather hope that Allah will raise from among their descendants people who will worship Allah alone and will not ascribe partners to Him.”
“There has certainly come to you a Messenger from among yourselves. Grievous to him is what you suffer; [he is] concerned over you and to the believers is kind and merciful.” [Surah Tawbah: 128]
And better than you, no eye has ever seen.
And more beautiful than you, no woman has ever given birth to.
You have been created free from every fault,
As if you have been created as you wish.
And how can we not love him – O group of believers – while the mountains and trees love him. In saheeh Bukhari it is narrated that the messenger of Allah ﷺ ascended Mount Uhud and the mountain shook so he ﷺ – said: “Be firm Uhud! Be firm Uhud! For upon you is a prophet, a truthful one, and two martyrs.”
And when he – may my father and mother be sacrificed for him (peace be upon him) – returned from the Tabook expedition, he looked upon Madeenah and said: “This is Taaba (Madeenah), and this is Uhud, a mountain that loves us and is loved by us.” [Narrated by Bukhari and Muslim]
In fact, the stones used to split and yearn when he would depart, like the yearning of a camel when its calf was removed from it.
Jaabir – may Allah be pleased with him – narrates “The roof of the Masjid was built over trunks of date-palms working as pillars. When the prophet delivered a sermon, he used to stand by one of these trunks till the pulpit was made for him and he used it instead. Then we heard the trunk sending a sound like that of a pregnant camel till the prophet came to it, and put his hand over it, then it became quiet.” [Narrated by Bukhari].
And Hasan al Basriyy – may Allah have mercy on him – when he used to mention this Hadeeth, he used to say: “O group of Muslims: Wood yearned for the messenger of Allah with longing, and you are more deserving of yearning for him.
And on the Day of Judgement when the Lord – Majestic is his Majesty and Holy are His names – becomes angry like never before and never after and every prophet on those plains will say: “My soul, my soul! Go to someone else” except our prophet ﷺ. He said: “So I will go and come under the Throne, and will fall into prostration to my Lord, then Allah will inspire me to praise Him and glorify Him with good words; words that were not inspired to anyone before me, then it will be said: ‘O Muhammad, raise your head, ask and you will be granted’, then I will raise my head and say: ‘My Lord, my nation! My nation!’ Then it will be said: ‘O Muhammad, admit from among your nation those who will not be brought to account from the right-hand gate of Paradise, and they will share the other gates with the people.‘” He said: “By the One in Whose Hand is my soul, the distance between two of the gate posts is like the distance between Makkah and Humayr or between Makkah and Busra.” [Narrated by Bukhari and Muslim]
There is no god but Allah! How great this noble prophet is! And how great is his status by his Lord! And there is no god but Allah! How great is his love for his nation.
We forget, in your love, every precious one
For today you are the most precious of what we have
And we have not met you, but the yearning reminds us,
so how about if we meet?!
People are distracted by this world, but – by Allah –
After you, we will not be distracted
O believers, verily the love of the prophet ﷺ has signs. And the reality of that love is according to the extent of those signs. So ask yourself, O lover, and examine your heart. Amongst those signs is obeying and following him ﷺ – in whatever he commanded, and believing in what he prophesied, and abstaining from what he prohibited and restricted and to love him before anyone else.
“Say, [O Muhammad], “If you should love Allah, then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.” [Surah Aal Imraan: 31]
Jaabir – may Allah be pleased with him – narrated: “When the messenger of Allah ﷺ ascended for Jumua, he said: ‘Sit down!’ And Ibn Mas’ood heard that, so he sat down at the door of the masjid.” See, O beloved brother, ‘so he sat down at the door of the masjid, then the messenger of Allah saw him, so he said: “Come, O Abdullah” [Narrated by Abu Dawood with an authentic chain]
Ponder, O group of believers, about the action of this noble companion, just by hearing the prophet ﷺ saying “Sit down!”, he – may Allah be pleased with him and please him – sat, even though he was sitting at the door of the masjid.
“O you who have believed, do not put [yourselves] before Allah and His Messenger but fear Allah. Indeed, Allah is Hearing and Knowing.” [Surah Hujuraat: 1]
And here we have the Ansaar – may Allah be pleased with them and please them – when the messenger of Allah ﷺ conquered Hunayn, he divided the booty, and he gave the new Muslims, and he didn’t give the Ansaar anything, and it was as if that hurt their feelings, so the messenger of Allah ﷺ stood talking to them, praising and thanking Allah, then he said: “O group of Ansaar, did I not find you misguided and then Allah guided you on the Right Path through me? You were poor, and Allah enriched you through me? You were divided into groups, and Allah brought you together through me?” They said: “Allah and His messenger did more favours on us.” The messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “Will you not answer me, O Ansaar?” They said: “With what should we answer you, O messenger of Allah, while for Allah and His messenger are all gifts and favours.” He said: “If you wish you could say – and you would be honest and trusted – you came to us belied and we believed in you; betrayed and we believed in you; exiled and we sheltered you. O Ansaar, are you upset for a thing so trivial and worldly that I gave to some people so as to join their hearts to Islam and left you out of it, believing that your Islam sufficed you? Is it not enough for you that the rest of the people will go home with a sheep or a camel, whereas you will return with the messenger of Allah? By Allah in Whose Hand is Muhammad’s soul, if not for the migration, I would rather have been one of the Ansaar. If the people moved in one way, and the Ansaar moved the other way, I would choose the way of the Ansaar. O Allah have mercy on the Ansaar, their children and their children’s children.”
By the time the prophet concluded his words, their beards were wet with tears, and they said: “It is enough for us to have the messenger of Allah as our reward!”
And Baihaqy reported in ‘dalaa’ilun Nubuwwah’, that Sa’d bin Abi Waqqaas – may Allah be pleased with him – narrated: “The messenger of Allah ﷺ passed by a woman from the Banu Dinar tribe, whose husband, brother and father were martyred for the messenger of Allah in Uhud. When she was informed of his death, she said: “How is the messenger of Allah ﷺ?” They said: “He is well, just as you would like, praise be to Allah.” She said: “Show him to me so that I can see him.” So he was shown to her, then when she saw him, she said: “Now that you are safe , O messenger of Allah, every misfortune is gone!”
There is no god but Allah! Her husband, brother and father were martyred and she said: “How is the messenger of Allah?” And she was not at ease until she saw him, then she said: “Now that you are safe, O messenger of Allah, every misfortune is gone!” Do you think that after having this love of the prophet ﷺ that she would disobey his command? Or leave his advices? Or raise her children against his sunnah and guidance? “Now that you are safe, O messenger of Allah, every misfortune is gone!” And this is not her condition only, but it is the condition of the women companions – may Allah be pleased with them. Just by hearing a command from the messenger of Allah ﷺ they would say: “We have heard and obeyed”.
And in saheeh Bukhari, Aisha – may Allah be pleased with her and please her – narrated: “May Allah have mercy on the first female migrants, when Allah – Blessed and Exalted – revealed: “and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests” [Noor, verse 31], they tore their aprons and covered their faces with them.”
And in Sunan Abu Dawood, with an authentic chain of narration: that the prophet ﷺ exited the masjid and the men and women were intermingling on the road, so the messenger of Allah ﷺ said to the women: “Delay (your exiting the masjid), for it is not befitting for you to claim the road. Keep to the edges of the road.” So the women used to cling to the walls until their clothes would stick to the walls because of their clinging to them.
And among the signs of loving him ﷺ is respecting, honouring and venerating his Sunnah. Allah – Exalted and Majestic – said: “Indeed, We have sent you as a witness and a bringer of good tidings and a warner. That you [people] may believe in Allah and His Messenger and honor him and respect the Prophet and exalt Allah morning and evening.” [Surah Fath: 8-9]
And in saheeh Bukhari, Urwah Ibn Mas’ood said to the Quraysh when they sent him to reconcile (with the Muslims): “O people, by Allah, I have visited Caesar and Kisra and Negus, and I have never seen the followers of a king so devoted to their leader like the companions of Muhammad in their devotion to Muhammad! And I have never seen any obedience amongst the followers of the kings like I have seen of the companions with Muhammad. Whenever he would give them a command, they would rush to do it, and whenever he would speak they would be silent as if birds are on their heads, and whenever he would do ablution, they would rush to get the droplets of water falling off his body, and when they spoke, they would lower their voices and would not look at his face constantly out of respect.”
And in saheeh Muslim, Amr bin al Aas – may Allah be pleased with him and please him – said: “There was no one more beloved to me than the messenger of Allah, and no one greater in my eyes than him. And I was unable to stare at him, due to my awe of him ﷺ. And if I were asked to describe him, I will be unable to because I could not fill my eyes with him.”
And Ibn Umar – may Allah be pleased with them both – said: “Umar’s wife used to pray Fajr and Isha in congregation in the masjid, so it was said to her: “Why do you exit, while you know that Umar dislikes that and is protective?” She said: “And what prevents him from prohibiting me?” They said: “The saying of the prophet ﷺ prevents him: “Do not prohibit the female servants of Allah from the masjids of Allah.” [Narrated by Bukhari]
And amongst the signs of loving him ﷺ is loving his family and his companions.
“Say, [O Muhammad], ‘I do not ask you for this message any payment [but] only good will through kinship.‘” [Surah Shoora: 23]
“And the first forerunners [in the faith] among the Muhajireen and the Ansar and those who followed them with good conduct – Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him, and He has prepared for them gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide forever. That is the great attainment.” [Surah Tawbah, verse 100]
And ash Sha’by said: “Zaid bin Thabit was riding and Ibn Abbaas took hold of his animal, Zaid said: ‘Don’t do this, O cousin of the messenger of Allah’, so Ibn Abbaas said: ‘This is how we were commanded to treat our scholars’, so Zaid said: ‘Show me your hand’, so he took out his hand, then Zaid kissed it and said: ‘This is how we were commanded to treat the household members of our prophet ﷺ.'”
Blessed brother! If you love him ﷺ then love his family and companions. Shaykhul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah said: “From the principles of the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah is that they love the household members of the messenger of Allah ﷺ and they befriend them, and they carry out the advice of the messenger of Allah ﷺ with regards to them: “Say, [O Muhammad], ‘I do not ask you for this message any payment [but] only good will through kinship.'”
And amongst the manifestations of loving him is wishing to see him and yearning to meet him and be close to him and asking Allah – Exalted and Majestic – to allow you to meet him.
In Saheeh Muslim: Abu Hurairah – may Allah be pleased with him – narrated that the messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “Amongst those who love me from my nation the most, are those who will come after me, wishing that they could see me, by employing their families and wealth,” i.e. they wish to see the prophet ﷺ even if they lose their families and wealth for that.
Yes! By my Lord whom there is no god but He, surely one glance at the face of the messenger of Allah ﷺ is equivalent to the family and wealth, so how about – my beloved brother – if you pray behind him and he talks to you?! And how about if he is happy to meet you on the Day of Judgement and he quenches you from his blessed pond with a sufficing drink after which you will never be thirsty?!
All of that, yes! By my Lord whom there is no god but He. All of that because you obeyed him and followed his Sunnah.
And in saheeh Muslim: Rabee’ah bin Ka’b al Aslamy said: “I used to spend the night with the messenger of Allah ﷺ so I used to bring him his water for ablution and his needs, so he said to me: ‘Ask! (for what you want)’, so I said: ‘I ask you for your company in Paradise’, so he ﷺ said: ‘Anything else?”, I said: ‘Just that’. He said: ‘So help me to help you by prostrating much.'”
There is no god but Allah! Hearts attached to their Creator. He – may Allah be pleased with him and please him – did not think of anything of this world, but all his concern was that he should be accompanying the messenger of Allah ﷺ in Paradise.
So if only you would be sweet, and life bitter
And if only you would be happy, and people angry
And if only between you and me was a building
And if only between the world and me was destruction
If the love from you is true, then everything is insignificant
And everyone above the soil, is soil.
And in the musnad of Imam Ahmad, with an authentic chain (of narration): “When Abu Bakr was in the throes of death, he said: ‘What day is this?’ They said: ‘Monday’. He – may Allah be pleased with him and please him – said: ‘If I die tonight, then do not wait with me until tomorrow, for verily the best of days and nights to me are those closest to the messenger of Allah ﷺ.'”
And amongst the signs of loving him ﷺ is to regard him with the status Allah has granted him, not becoming extreme regarding him, and not attributing anything to him that Allah has not attributed to him or anything that Allah did not select him for.
“Say, ‘Indeed, I do not possess for you [the power of] harm or right direction.’ Say, ‘Indeed, there will never protect me from Allah anyone [if I should disobey], nor will I find in other than Him a refuge.‘” [Surah Jinn: 21-22]
And He – Glorified is He, Majestic in His Majesty – said about him: “Say, ‘I hold not for myself [the power of] benefit or harm, except what Allah has willed. And if I knew the unseen, I could have acquired much wealth, and no harm would have touched me.‘” [Surah A’raaf: 188]
And he ﷺ warned us against extremism, saying: “Beware of extremism in religion, for extremism destroyed those who came before you.” [Narrated by Ibn Majah with an authentic chain of narration]
And he ﷺ said, as narrated in saheeh Bukhari: “Do not praise me as the Christians praised the son of Maryam. Indeed I am a slave of Allah. So say ‘the slave of Allah and His messenger.'”
I seek protection in Allah from the accursed Satan.
“There has certainly come to you a Messenger from among yourselves. Grievous to him is what you suffer; [he is] concerned over you and to the believers is kind and merciful. But if they turn away, [O Muhammad], say, ‘Sufficient for me is Allah; there is no deity except Him. On Him I have relied, and He is the Lord of the Great Throne.’” [Surah Tawbah: 128-129]
May Allah benefit me and you with the guidance of His Book and with the Sunnah of His messenger ﷺ. I say that which you hear and I seek Allah’s forgiveness for me and you from every sin and error. So seek His forgiveness. Verily He is Oft-Forgiving, most Merciful.
All praise be to Allah. All praise be to Allah, a praise that is abundant, good and blessed, just as our Lord loves and is pleased with. And I bear witness that there is no god but Allah alone. He has no partner. And I bear witness that our prophet Muhammad is His servant and messenger. May Allah’s salutations be upon him and upon his family, companions and may much peace be upon them.
Thereafter, O group of believers:
Verily amongst the effects of loving the prophet ﷺ rather what we should take care of, just as the prophet ﷺ used to do.. Behold, that is the unity of speech and the unification of the nation, for how much he – may my father and mother be sacrificed for him ﷺ – used to be ardent on that in his preaching, continuing this until the end of his life, and he drew up his method for us and made clear to us his way, when he united various nationalities from different tribes. Every one of them was united by him ﷺ under the umbrella of Islam: the Arab with the non-Arab, the white with the black, the poor with the prince.
All that was realised by him – may my father and mother be sacrificed for him (ﷺ) – through this great divine method. And he used to call unto his nation, up until his last moments, to unite as one hand with its leader, listening and obeying in love and hate, and in difficulty and ease.
And in the two authentics (Bukhari and Muslim): Anas bin Malik – may Allah be pleased with him – said that Abu Bakr used to lead them in prayer during the fatal illness of the messenger of Allah ﷺ until it was Monday and they were in rows in prayer, the messenger of Allah ﷺ opened the curtains of his room, looking at us while he was standing as if his face was a page of the Quran then he ﷺ smiled. Anas said: “We were amazed, while we were in prayer due to our joy with the exiting of the messenger of Allah ﷺ. Abu Bakr tried to step back thinking that Allah’s messenger wanted to come out for the prayer. The messenger of Allah ﷺ waved his hand to them to complete their prayer, then he went back into the room and let down the curtain. The prophet expired on that very day.” Anas – may Allah be pleased with him – said: “The day the prophet Muhammad ﷺ came to Madeenah, everything around it became illuminated. The day when he passed away, everything of Madeenah became dark.”
Imam an Nawawi – may Allah have mercy on him – said: “Verily the reason for his smiling ﷺ is his joy on seeing their unity in prayer, their following of their Imaam and their establishing of his sharee’ah, the unity of their speech and unification of their hearts, and due to this his face lit up ﷺ. It was his ﷺ habit that when he saw something or heard something that pleased him, his face would light up ﷺ.
And from amongst the signs of loving him – O servants of Allah – is to abandon the dear and precious in the joining of the hearts of the nation and uniting their words, unifying their rank on the Book of their Lord and the Sunnah of their prophet, because that is what makes our messenger happy and enters pleasure into his heart ﷺ. In fact, in that there is strength and protection, and in everything else, there is weakness, fatigue and destruction.
“And do not dispute and [thus] lose courage and [then] your strength would depart; and be patient. Indeed, Allah is with the patient.” [Surah Anfaal: 46]
And ponder with me – blessed brother – regarding the condition of Aus and Khazraj when they were disunited and at war, they were in weakness and humiliation, with the Jews playing with them as they pleased. Then when the prophet ﷺ came to the ‘purest of the pure’ (Madeenah), he united their ranks and unified their words until they became like the heart of one man. In a few years, the light of guidance shone through it and Islam spread among the population and the thrones of Kisra and Qaysar shook and the Muslims ruled over the east and the west, and the people were in awe of the unity of the companions of the messenger of Allah ﷺ.
I seek protection in Allah from the accursed Satan.
“And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become divided. And remember the favor of Allah upon you – when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became, by His favor, brothers. And you were on the edge of a pit of the Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus does Allah make clear to you His verses that you may be guided.” [Surah Aal Imraan: 103]
O Allah send salutations on our prophet Muhammad and on the family of our prophet Muhammad as You have sent salutations on Ibraheem and the family of Ibraheem. Verily You are the Praiseworthy, the Glorious. And send blessings – O Allah – on our prophet Muhammad and on the family of our prophet Muhammad as You have sent blessings on Ibraheem and the family of Ibraheem. Verily You are the Praiseworthy, the Glorious.
And be pleased – O Allah – with the rightly-guided successors: Abu Bakr, ‘Umar, ‘Uthman and ‘Ali and with the rest of the companions and those who succeeded them and those who follow them in goodness until the Day of Judgement and include us with them by Your Pardon and Generosity, O Most Merciful of those who show mercy.
O Allah grant honour to Islam and the Muslims. O Allah grant honour to Islam and the Muslims. O Allah grant honour to Islam and the Muslims, and disgrace polytheism and the polytheists.
O Allah do not leave us with a sin except that You forgive it; with an ill person except that You cure him; with an afflicted person except that You grant him comfort; with a misguided person except that You guide him; with a confused person except that You guide him; with a deceased among our deceased except that You have mercy on him.
O Allah reform the affairs of the Muslims all over the world. O Allah reform the affairs of the Muslims all over the world. O Allah reform the affairs of the Muslims all over the world.
O Allah whoever intends evil for the Muslim lands, then busy him with himself and make his plans a destruction on him, O Strong, O Mighty, O Possessor of Majesty and Bounty.
O Allah enable the Muslim leaders to do that which You love and pleases You.
O Allah enable the leader of this country and clothe him in the dress of good health and comfort and give him the goods of the pious, and grant him a righteous, good, blessed interior, which will guide him to good and help him to do it.
O Allah enable him, his deputy and his aids to that which is good for the land and the people.
O Allah have mercy on this gathering of ours, and make us leave here free of sin and do not make from amongst us, in us or with us one who is miserable or deprived.
O Allah forgive our fathers and mothers as they raised us when we were young. O Allah forgive our fathers and mothers as they raised us when we were young. O Allah forgive our fathers and mothers as they raised us when we were young.
O Allah whoever among them have passed away, send on their graves showers of mercy and widen their graves for them as far as the eye can see.
O Allah and widen their graves for them as far as the eye can see, and unite us with them in the place of Your Generosity without any reckoning or punishment.
And whoever among them is alive, O Allah, then lengthen their lives, make good their deeds and make their ends and our ends good ends.
O Allah reform our religion which is the guardian of our affairs, and reform our world in which we live, and reform our Hereafter to which we will journey, and make our lives an increase in good for us, and our deaths a comfort for us from every evil and save us from disgrace in this world and from punishment in the Hereafter.
“Exalted is your Lord, the Lord of Might, above all what they describe. And peace upon the messengers. And all praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds.” [Surah Saafaat: 180-182]
