💎 Precious Dua
📙 Note 7⃣
💧 Surah Al Shuara 83-85
(رَبِّ هَبۡ لِى حُڪۡمً۬ا وَأَلۡحِقۡنِى بِٱلصَّـٰلِحِينَ (٨٣) وَٱجۡعَل لِّى لِسَانَ صِدۡقٍ۬ فِى ٱلۡأَخِرِينَ (٨٤) وَٱجۡعَلۡنِى مِن وَرَثَةِ جَنَّةِ ٱلنَّعِيمِ (٨٥))
(My Lord! Bestow Hukm (religious knowledge, right judgement of the affairs and Prophethood) on me, and join me with the righteous, (83) And grant me an honourable mention in later generations. (84) And make me one of the inheritors of the Paradise of Delight. (85))
🔒 Who made this dua’a? 🔑 Ibrahim (as)
🎆 Why was it said?
🔰 When he was debating with the disbelievers that the idols are of no benefit to them. His father was together with the disbelievers. After Ibrahim (as) told them about Allah (swt), he made this dua’a. What is the dua’a?
🔹(رَّبِّ) (My Rabb)
🎊 you are calling on your Rabb to have the special nurturing. What do you want Allah (swt) to do?
🔹 (هَبۡ لِى حُڪۡمً۬ا)
(Bestow Hukm (religious knowledge, right judgement of the affairs and Prophethood) on me)
🍃 this is from the actions of Allah (swt)
(الشرح فعل الله).
Allah is Al Wahab and He grants gifts without wanting anything in return. What gift?
for me, this shows ownership (ملكية).
this means abundant knowledge, so that with this knowledge, I will have wisdom and authority. What kind of knowledge? Knowledge of the deen – in order to know what is
🎯 Halal and haram
(الحلال و الحرام)
🍇 Rulings, how to deal with people, etc (الاحكام)
🍄 And both of these will lead to hikma, wisdom: which is to say the right words, at the right time, to the right people.
🌟 If you want a shortcut to be wise – study the Quran and Sunnah, you don’t have to go through experiences. Some people gain their wisdom by going through so many experiences, but alhamdulliah we have a shortcut with the Quran and the Sunnah, subhan Allah.
🎾 We don’t need to go through different experiences to learn wisdom. And when you have wisdom, you will be able to judge correctly without being unjust, subhan Allah.
🌲 So you are asking Allah (swt) to grant you wisdom. Sometimes we might ask for things that are surrounding us, like health, wealth, children, etc, but we might forget or be unaware to ask for such things as wisdom, and alhamdulliah the Quran is teaching us this.
(and join me with the righteous)
🌈 you are with those whom you love, so if you love the righteous, you will be gathered with them.
🍁 Hadith 🍁
(عَنْ أَنَسٍ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ أَنَّ رَجُلاً، سَأَلَ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم عَنِ السَّاعَةِ، فَقَالَ مَتَى السَّاعَةُ قَالَ ” وَمَاذَا أَعْدَدْتَ لَهَا ”. قَالَ لاَ شَىْءَ إِلاَّ أَنِّي أُحِبُّ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ صلى الله عليه وسلم. فَقَالَ ” أَنْتَ مَعَ مَنْ أَحْبَبْتَ ”. قَالَ أَنَسٌ فَمَا فَرِحْنَا بِشَىْءٍ فَرَحَنَا بِقَوْلِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ” أَنْتَ مَعَ مَنْ أَحْبَبْتَ ”. قَالَ أَنَسٌ فَأَنَا أُحِبُّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم وَأَبَا بَكْرٍ وَعُمَرَ، وَأَرْجُو أَنْ أَكُونَ مَعَهُمْ بِحُبِّي إِيَّاهُمْ، وَإِنْ لَمْ أَعْمَلْ بِمِثْلِ أَعْمَالِهِمْ)
(A man asked the Prophet (ﷺ) about the Hour (i.e. Day of Judgment) saying, “When will the Hour be?” The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “What have you prepared for it?” The man said, “Nothing, except that I love Allah and His Apostle.” The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “You will be with those whom you love.” We had never been so glad as we were on hearing that saying of the Prophet (ﷺ) (i.e., “You will be with those whom you love.”) Therefore, I love the Prophet, Abu Bakr and `Umar, and I hope that I will be with them because of my love for them though my deeds are not similar to theirs.)
📍 Al Bukhari 3688 📍
🌼 You love Allah and you love His Messenger, though your deeds do not reach, but you will be joined with them out of that love. You are asking Allah (swt) to make you perform good deeds so that you may be worthy to be joined with the righteous.
who are the righteous?
🎆 Those who are suitable to be in paradise, meaning they have been reformed to be in paradise. And what is the other request?
🔹(وَٱجۡعَل لِّى لِسَانَ صِدۡقٍ۬ فِى ٱلۡأَخِرِينَ)
(And grant me an honourable mention in later generations)
🍯 to have a good reputation after death, so that those who come after me will remember me with truth. Meaning you lived a good life and are praised with truth until the end of time
(ثناء صدق مستمرا الى آخر الدهر).
🚩 And look Ibrahim (as) is remembered until the Last Day, he is being mentioned in the salah, subhan Allah.
🔸(وَٱجۡعَلۡنِى مِن وَرَثَةِ جَنَّةِ ٱلنَّعِيمِ)
(And make me one of the inheritors of the Paradise of Delight)
🍅 you are not asking Allah (swt) to take you to paradise, but to inherit paradise – meaning to have a share in the gardens of delight – and this is assurance, subhan Allah.
🎀 Every person has a place in paradise and hellfire, but you have to ‘buy’ your share in paradise and ‘sell’ your share in hellfire, you don’t want the opposite, to ‘buy’ your share in hellfire, and ‘sell’ your share in paradise, may Allah (swt) protect us. Ameen.
🌿 May Allah (swt) make us inherit paradise. Ameen.
