As Big as a Mountain

August 4, 2015 Comments Off on As Big as a Mountain

In a Hasan Hadith, ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib, Allah ennoble his countenance, reported:

A contractor came to me and said, “I cannot pay my debt, help me out.”

[Sayyiduna] ‘Ali said, “Shall I not teach you some words taught to me by the Messenger of Allah ﷺ? If you were to have debt as big as a mountain, Allah would repay it for you.

Say: O Allah, suffice me with what you have made lawful against what you have made unlawful and make me independent of all those beside you.”

عَنْ عَلِيٍّ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ مُكَاتَبًا جَاءَهُ فَقَالَ إِنِّي قَدْ عَجَزْتُ عَنْ كِتَابَتِي فَأَعِنِّي قَالَ أَلَا أُعَلِّمُكَ كَلِمَاتٍ عَلَّمَنِيهِنَّ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَعلى آله وصحبه وسلم لَوْ كَانَ عَلَيْكَ مِثْلُ جَبَلِ صِيرٍ دَيْنًا أَدَّاهُ اللَّهُ عَنْكَ قَالَ قُلْ
اللَّهُمَّ اكْفِنِي بِحَلَالِكَ عَنْ حَرَامِكَ وَأَغْنِنِي بِفَضْلِكَ عَمَّنْ سِوَاكَ
