Prayers of the Pious (20): Don’t Ask Allah for Patience

In this episode, Sheikh Omar Suleiman goes over a narration that gives us insight into some do’s and don’ts of du`a’, especially about praying for patience.

Mu`adh bin Jabal narrated that the Prophet heard a man supplicating, saying: “O Allah! Verily, I ask You for the bounty’s completion (Allahumma, inni as’aluka tamaman-ni`mah).” So he said: “What thing is the bounty’s completion?” He said: “A supplication that I made, that I hope for good by it.” He said: “Indeed, part of the bounty’s completion is the entrance into Paradise, and salvation from the Fire.” And he heard a man while he was saying: “O Possessor of Majesty and Honor (Ya Dhal-Jalali wal- Ikram)” So he said: “You have been responded to, so ask.” And the Prophet heard a man while he was saying: “O Allah, indeed, I ask You for patience (Allahumma, inni as’alukaṣ-ṣabr)” He said: “You have asked Allah for trial, so ask him for Al-`Afiyah.”
