Hadith: 30 May 2014 (30 Rajab 1435)

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Abdullah bin Masud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported that The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) used to say: "Allahumma inni as’alukal-huda wat-tuqa wal-`afafa wal-ghina (O Allah! I ask You for guidance, piety, chastity and self-sufficiency)".

[Muslim Book 37, Chapter 17, Hadith # 6566].

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al- Ankabut Ayat 69 “Allah will surely guide them to his Paths” and Surah Al-Kahf Ayat 17. "He whom Allah guides, is rightly guided;" This Hadith contains four words, the meanings and implications of which constitute its essence. These words are guidance, piety (fear of Allah), chastity and sufficiency. Guidance here means guidance at every turn of life and steadfastness on the path of truth. Fear of Allah is the greatest means of piety and strongest defense against sins. Chastity is the state of being free from what is unlawful. Self-sufficiency is the antonym of poverty and here it means the self-contentment. What it implies is that one should not care for what people possess. In view of all these qualities, the prayer of the Prophet [SAWW](PBUH) mentioned in this Hadith is very comprehensive and valuable.
