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]
