A beautiful Hadith & its Sharh

Recommended Posts




Sayyiduna Rabi’ah says that,


I always spent the nights with the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam. One night, I presented water to him for Istinja and wudu.


He Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said to me,




And the words of Tabrani,


O Rabi’ah! Ask me what you desire and I will grant you.


We revert back to the words of Sahih Muslim,


Then I asked,


I seek your company in Jannah.


The Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam asked,


Is there any other request?


I replied,


That is all I desire.


The beloved Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam replied,


Then you assist me by making excessive Sujuud


Sharh [commentary]:


An important fact is that the Beloved Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said,


Ask [sal] what you desire.


This command has no restrictions or limitations. Why would the Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam say Sal [ask] unconditionally if he did not possess the authority to grant desires?


Shaykh E Muhaqqiq Abdul Haqq Muhaddith of Delhi states in his commentary of Mishkaat al-Masabih, Ashiatul Lam’aat,


‘Sal’ [ask] is an unconditional question. There are no limitations or restrictions attached to it. This is to understand that it is within the power and authority of Sayyiduna RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam to grant the desire. Whatever and whomever the Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam desires, he can grant it, by the permission of Allah Azzowajal.


Imam Mullah Ali Qari in his Mirqat Sharh Mishkaat writes:


When Sayyiduna RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam ordered to ask unconditionally signals that Allah Azzowajal has granted power to His beloved Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam to give whatever he wishes from the treasury of Allah Azzowajal.
