Do You Know What The Highest Company Of Angels Are Disputing About?

[Translated by Aboo Talhah Daawood ibn Ronald Burbank]

At-Tirmidhee reported in his ‘Sunan’ [Kitaab Tafseeril-Qur.aan: Chapter (39): And from Soorah ‘Saad’ (no. 3233)]:

“Salamah ibn Shabeeb narrated to us, and `Abd ibn Humayd, both saying: `Abdur Razzaaq narrated to us: from Ma`mar: from Ayyoob: from Aboo Qilaabah: from Ibn `Abbaas who said: Allaah’s Messenger said:

<< Last night my Lord -the Exalted and Most High- came to me in the finest form >>

he said: I think he said: << in a dream >>,

<< so He said: ‘O Muhammad! Do you know what the highest company (of Angels) are disputing about?.’

He said: “I said: No.”

He said: So He placed His Hand between my shoulder-blades, so that I felt its coolness within my breast – or he said – my chest. So I knew what was in the heavens and upon the earth.

He said: ‘O Muhammad! Do you know what the highest company (of Angels) are disputing about?’

I said: Yes, about those things which efface sins; and those things which efface sins are:

Remaining in the mosques after the Prayer, and walking upon foot to the congregational Prayers, and perfecting the wudoo when it is difficult.

Whoever does that will live upon good and die upon good, and with regard to his sins he will be like the day his mother gave birth to him.”

He said ‘O Muhammad! When you pray then say:

dua-The Highest Company Of Angels Are Disputing AboutAllaahumma innee as aluka fi’alal khayraathi, wa tarkil munkaraati, wa hubbaal masaakeeni, wa idhaa ardatha bi ibaadika fitnatan  faqbidhnee ilayka ghayra maftoon

O Allaah, I ask You for the performance of good deeds, and the abandonment of evil deeds, and for love of the poor and needy; and if You wish to put Your servants to trial then take me to Yourself (in death) not being put to trial.’

He said:

And the (high) levels are propagating the greeting of ‘Salaam’, providing food, and praying during the night whilst the people are sleeping. >>

Glory is to Allaah and praise is to Him, by the multitude of his creation

Subhaanallaahi wa bihamdihi Adada khalqihi

Juwairiyah (radhi Allaahu anha) reported that one day the Prophet, peace be upon him, left her apartment in the morning as she was busy observing her dawn prayer in her place of worship. He came back in the forenoon and she was still sitting there. The Prophet, peace be upon him, said to her, “You have been in the same place since I left you?” She said, “Yes.” Thereupon the Prophet, peace be upon him, said, “I recited four words three times after I left you and if these were to be weighed against what you have recited since morning these would outweigh them, and these words are:

سُبْحـانَ اللهِ وَبِحَمْـدِهِ عَدَدَ خَلْـقِه ، وَرِضـا نَفْسِـه ، وَزِنَـةَ عَـرْشِـه ، وَمِـدادَ كَلِمـاتِـه

Subhaanallaahi wa bihamdihi: ‘Adada khalqihi wa ridhaa nafsihi, wa zinata ‘arshihi wa midaada kalimaatihi.

Glory is to Allaah and praise is to Him, by the multitude of his creation, by His Pleasure, by the weight of His Throne, and by the extent of His Words (Recite 3 times in Arabic)

hamdan-katheeran-tayyiban-mubarakan-feeh

One day we were praying behind the Messenger of Allah ﷺ and when he ﷺ raised his head from the position of ruku` (bowing position), he said: “Sami Allahu leman hamidah” – ‘Allah hears the one who praises Him’. A man from behind added:

رَبَّنـا وَلَكَ الحَمْـدُ حَمْـداً كَثـيراً طَيِّـباً مُـبارَكاً فيه

“Rabbanaa wa la kal hamd, hamdan katheeran tayyiban mubaarakan feeh”

‘Our Lord, all praise is due only to You, praise which is abundant, excellent and blessed.’

When we finished [the prayer] the Prophet ﷺ said: ‘Who spoke?’ The man said, ‘I did’. He ﷺ said,

‘Indeed I saw some 30 angels all scuffling to see which one of them could record it.’

Let Jannah and Jahannam make dua to Allaah for you

Anas ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated the Messenger of Allah said: “ Whoever asks Allah for Jannah three times, Paradise says, “ Oh Allah enter him into Jannah. Whoever seeks protection with Allah from Hell three times, Jahanim says, “ Oh Allah protect him from the Fire.”

Collected by At-Tirmithi (2572) and others. Shaykh Al-Albani (May Allah have mercy on him) graded this hadeeth as being Saheeh in Saheeh At-Tirmithi.

Benefits for this subject:

Shaykh Al-Hafith Al-Mubarkfuri ( [1353 H] may Allah have mercy on him) mentioned some valuable information about this hadeeth. He wrote:

“Whoever asks Allah for Jannah…” This can be said with the following words “ Oh Allah, I ask you for Jannah” or “Oh Allah, let me enter Jannah”

“ three times…” This means he repeats that request at one time. Saying it three times is an earnest request. This etiquette of supplication is authentically reported in the Sunnah.

Paradise says, “This is a petition or with it’s tongue. Allah has the ability to make things that don’t normally speak or are non-living talk.

“Oh Allah enter him into Jannah…”Allow him to enter with those in the beginning or with those later.

Whoever seeks protection…”This refers to the person who seeks guard or protection from the Fire.

“ from Hell…”This can be said with the following words, “Oh Allah, protect me from Hell.

“Jahanim says,.. “ This means that Hell says,” Save him and rescue him.”

“ from the Fire…”These words refer to Hell asking Allah to allow the slave to be saved from entering the Fire or residing inside it forever.

لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ

Two Qualities of Slave of Allah which will make him enter Paradise

The Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam-said:

There are two characteristics or two qualities that if a Muslim slave of Allaah is continuous upon, will enter Paradise, they are simple but those who do them are few. To say SubhanAllaah at the end of every prayer ten times, says alhamdulillah ten times and says Allaahu akbar ten times, which is equivalent to 150 times on the tongue and 1500 on the scales. And he says Allaahu Akbar 34 times when he goes to bed and he says alhamdulillah 33 times and says SubhanAllaah 33 times, and that is equivalent to 100 on the tongue and 1000 on the scales.

Collected by Abu Dawud(5065), At-Tirmithi(3410) Nisa’i(926) and Ahmed(2/205) Imam An-Nawwawee graded the isnad of this hadeeth as being Saheeh and Imam At-Tirmithi said this hadeeth is Hasan Saheeh.
