“Those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh – Islâmic Monotheism), and whose hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allâh, Verily, in the remembrance of Allâh do hearts find rest.” (Al Qur’an 13:28)

Al Hamd is for You..


hamd dua

In his Sunan, Ibn Majah recorded that Ibn `Umar said that,

the Messenger of Allah (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said,

«إِنَّ عَبْدًا مِنْ عِبَادِ اللهِ قَالَ:يَا رَبِّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ كَمَا يَنْبَغِي لِجَلَالِ وَجْهِكَ وَعَظِيمِ سُلْطَانِكَ. فَعَضَلَتْ بِالْمَلَكَيْنِ فَلَمْ يَدْرِيَا كَيْفَ يَكْتُبَانِهَا فَصَعِدَا إِلَى اللهِ فَقَالَا: يَا رَبَّنَا إِنَّ عَبْدًا قَدْ قَالَ مَقَالَةً لَا نَدْرِي كَيْفَ نَكْتُبُهَا، قَالَ اللهُ، وَهُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا قَالَ عَبْدُهُ: مَاذَا قَالَ عَبْدِي؟ قَالَا: يَا رَبِّ إِنَّهُ قَالَ: لَكَ الْحَمْدُ يَا رَبِّ كَمَا يَنْبَغِي لِجَلَالِ وَجْهِكَ وَعَظِيمِ سُلْطَانِكَ. فَقَالَ اللهُ لَهُمَا: اكْتُبَاهَا كَمَا قَالَ عَبْدِي، حَتَّى يَلْقَانِي فَأَجْزِيهِ بِهَا.»

A servant of Allah once said, `O Master! Al Hamd (Praise & Thanks) belongs to You
that (which) is suitable for the grace of Your Face and the greatness of Your Supreme Authority.’  

The two angels were confused as to how to write these words. They ascended to Allah and said, `

O our Lord! A servant has just uttered a statement and we are unsure how to record it for him.’

Allah said while having more knowledge in what His servant has said, ‘What did My servant say’

They said, `He said, O Master! Al Hamd (Praise & Thanks) belongs to You
that (which) is suitable for the grace of Your Face and the greatness of Your Supreme Authority.’

Allah said to them,`Write it as My servant has said it, until he meets Me and then I shall reward him for it.’

[Ibn Majah 2:1249]

A Jannah Farmer’s Advice


dhikr2

In one of my favorite narrations, Ibn Masood (radiAllahu ánhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (salAllahu alayhi wa salam) said, “I met Ibrahim (alayhis salam) on the Night of Ascension and he said to me: Oh Muhammad! Convey my greetings to your Ummah, and tell them that Jannah has a vast plain of pure soil and sweet water and is set as a plain leveled land. The plants grow there by uttering: SubhanAllah wal hamdulillah wa la ilaha ilallah wAllahu Akbar (Allah is free from imperfection, praise be to Allah, there is no true god except Allah, and Allah is Greatest).” [At-Tirmidhi].
These phrases of remembrance all individually have a multitude of narrations extolling their virtues. However, this narration is dear to my heart because look who is giving the advice, to whom it’s being given, and where it is being given!

If a person just constantly repeats these phrases all day long even as he works, Internet surfs, exercises, etc. How many trees in paradise would he be able to plant? Trees that have shade that extend thousands of miles and flowers that grow that would be admired for hundreds of years before moving on to the next one.

Why is this so important in Ramadan?

Because the fasting of the tongue is the hardest form of fasting. Many fasts are rendered fruitless because of the negative use of the tongue. By repeating these phrases at all times, you protect the tongue from negative usage which starts from idleness.

“So remember Me; I will remember you. And be grateful to Me and do not deny Me.”  (Al Qur’an 2:152)
