Inform Those Whom You Love For Allah’s Sake
Mu’adh bin Jabal (radi Allahu anhu) reported: The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) held my hand and said, “O Mu’adh, By Allah, I love you and advise you not to miss supplicating after every Salat (prayer) saying: ‘Allahumma a’inni ‘ala dhikrika wa shukrika, wa husni ‘ibadatika,’ (O Allah, help me remember You, expressing gratitude to You and worship You in the best manner).”
[Abu Dawud and An-Nasa'i]
We learn from this Hadith the following:
- It is commendable to inform those whom one loves for Allah’s sake, of this love.
- The superiority of Mu’adh.
- It is commendable to say this Du’a after each obligatory Salat.
- It is commendable to seek Allah’s Help in order to discharge one’s duties towards Allah in the best possible manner.
And Allah Knows Best!
