Saheeh Al-Jami ‘As-Saghir Hadith No. 244

By almaas Sep 7, 2020

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.

Grade: صحيح


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.
