ادع إلى ربك الذي إن مسك ضر فدعوته كشف عنك, والذي إن أضللت بأرض قفر فدعوته رد عليك, والذي إن أصابتك سنة فدعوته أنبت لك» .
(صحيح) … [حم د هق] عن أبي جري. المشكاة 918)

It is reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“Turn with a prayer to your Lord, who, if harm touches you and you turn to him with a prayer, will take it away from you, and who, if you lose (a mount) in a deserted place and turn to him with a prayer, will return it to you , and who, if a drought overtakes you and you turn to him with a prayer, (will send you rain) and make you grow (what you have planted). “

This hadith was narrated by Ahmad 3/483 and 5/64, Abu Dawud 4084 and 5209, at-Tirmidhi 2722, al-Nasai in ‘Amal al-yaum wa’l-laya’ 317-320, Ibn al-Sunni in ” Amal al-yaum wa-l-leila ”236, al-Hakim 4/186, at-Tabarani in“ Mu’jam al-Kabir ”6386 and 6387 and al-Bayhakyi 10/236 from the words of Abu Jurayya.

Sheikh al-Albani called the hadith authentic. See Sahih al-Jami ‘as-saghir 242, al-Silsilah al-sahiha 1179, Mishkat al-Masabih 918.

_____________________________

In the version of this hadith cited by Imam Abu Daud, it is reported that Abu Juray Jabir ibn Suleim, may Allah be pleased with him, said:

“I saw a man whose opinion was accepted by the people, and whatever he said they submitted to it. I asked: Who is he? They said: This is the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ). I said: On you be peace, Messenger of Allah, twice. He said: Do not say “On you be peace,” for “On you be peace” is a greeting for the dead[1], but say “Peace be upon you”.

I asked: You are the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon you)? He said: I am the Messenger of Allah (of the One) Whom you call when a calamity befalls you and He removes it; when you suffer from drought and you call Him, He grows food for you; and when you are in a desolate land or in a desert and your she-camel strays and you call Him, He returns it to you.

I said: Give me some advice.[2] He said: Do not abuse anyone. He said that he did not abuse a freeman, or a slave, or a camel or a sheep henceforth. He said: Do not look down upon any good work, and when you speak to your brother, show him a cheerful face. This is a good work. Have your lower garment halfway down your shin; if you cannot do it, have it up to the ankles. Beware of trailing the lower garment, for it is conceit and Allah does not like conceit. And if a man abuses and shames you for something which he finds in you[3], then do not shame him for something which you find in him; he will bear the evil consequences for it.”


[1] This means that it was customary to greet the deceased during the Jahiliyyah.

[2] That is: after hearing the prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), Abu Jurayi, may Allah be pleased with him, converted to Islam.

[3] That is: for the sins you have committed or unseemly deeds about which he became aware.
