The Best Way for Sisters to Say the Supplication to Alleviate Grief, Distress and Anxiety


According to Shaykh Al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (May Allah have mercy upon him)
An exclusive translation for Sisters Upon Al-Istiqaamah

Imam Ahmed, Musnad (1/391), and others reported upon the authority of Ibn Mas’ood that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “No slave is afflicted with anxiety and grief, and then says:

‘O Allah, I am Your slave, son of Your male slave, son of Your female slave. My forelock is in Your hand. Your judgement upon me is assured and whatever you have decreed for me is just. I ask You by every name belonging to You which You have named Yourself with, revealed in Your Book, taught one of Your creation or which You have preserved in the knowledge of the Unseen with You that You make the Qur’aan the spring of my heart and the light of my chest, a banisher for my grief and a reliever for my anxiety.’
Except that Allaah will replace his distress and grief with joy.”

He was asked, ‘O Messenger of Allaah, should we not learn it?’ He said, “Of course, whoever hears it should learn it.”

Shaykh Al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allah have mercy upon him) was asked about a woman who heard the hadeeth: ‘O Allah, I am Your slave , son of Your male slave, son of Your slave. My forelock is in Your hand…(to the end of the hadeeth. And she continuously used this wording. So she was instructed to say, “O Allah I am your female slave  daughter of Your female slave- until the end of it.” However, she refused to say this and persisted upon the original wording. Is she correct in this or not?

He responded:

“Rather, it is befitting for her to say, “O Allah, I am Your female slave (أمتك), daughter (بنت) of Your male slave (عبدك), son of Your female slave (أمتك).”
اللَّهُمَّ إنِّي أَمَتك بِنتُ عَبْدِك ابْنِ أَمَتِك

This is more appropriate and better even though her statement “I am your slave (عبدك), son (ابن) of your slave” has a angle in the Arabic language like the word Zawj (i.e. which can be used for man or wife). And Allah knows best.”

Majmoo’ Al-Fataawa Vol. 22, p. 488.


The supplication in Arabic:
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّى عَبْدُكَ وَابْنُ عَبْدِكَ وَابْنُ أَمَتِكَ نَاصِيَتِى بِيَدِكَ مَاضٍ فِىَّ حُكْمُكَ عَدْلٌ فِىَّ قَضَاؤُكَ أَسْأَلُكَ بِكُلِّ اسْمٍ هُوَ لَكَ سَمَّيْتَ بِهِ نَفْسَكَ أَوْ عَلَّمْتَهُ أَحَداً مِنْ خَلْقِكَ أَوْ أَنْزَلْتَهُ فِى كِتَابِكَ أَوِ اسْتَأْثَرْتَ بِهِ فِى عِلْمِ الْغَيْبِ عِنْدَكَ أَنْ تَجْعَلَ الْقُرْآنَ رَبِيعَ قَلْبِى وَنُورَ صَدْرِى وَجَلاَءَ حُزْنِى وَذَهَابَ هَمِّى

So according to Shaykh Al-Islam it is better for women to say:

اللَّهُمَّ إنِّي أَمَتك بِنتُ عَبْدِك ابْنِ أَمَتِك

And the rest of the supplication is exactly the same.

The Greeting Sabaahul Khayr-Sabaahun Noor; Masaa-ul Khayr-Masaa-in Noor Is A Greeting Of The Magians

A great number of the of the people would say when they greet one another; ”Sabaahul-Khayr or Masaa-ul Khayr!”  The respond to this greeting is: ”Sabaahun Noor and Masaa-in Noor”.  This greeting is a Magian greeting (i.e. a greeting of the fire worshippers).

The Magians believe in two powerful (forces); the forces of Good and Evil, which they compare to Light and Darkness.  The Magians have two gods; the god of goodness or light and the god of evil or darkness; and that these two (gods) contend with one another to rule the world.

So this is the reason the Magians greet one another with their statement: Sabaahul Khayr-Sabaahun-Noor; while Islaam has commanded us (Muslims) to greet with the Islaamic Greeting ‘As-Salaamu-Alaykum’………

Shaykh Abdul Muhsin Al-‘Abbaad Was Asked About The Killing Of The Kharijite Bin Laden
Q: What is the balanced position concerning the killing of Usamah Bin Laden as there are those who are delighted with his killing and others who said that he was a Mujaahid and they judged him to have achieved martyrdom?
A: The Shaykh responded:
“How is he a Mujaahid! Yes, he was a Mujaahid [a person that strove] in the path of the devil. Usamah Bin Laden brought a great deal of evil to the Muslims and there is no doubt that his departure will bring them ease; the people will be more at ease due to his departure.”

Shaykh Salih Al-Fawzan on Wearing Clothes that have the Names of Kuffar on them

In one of his lessons on Tathir Al-I’tiqad, Shaykh Salih b. Fawzan Al-Fawzan – Allah protect him, was asked the following question:

[What about] a person who wears what the unbelievers wear, and on the back [of the clothing] is written the name of a Kafir player (sportsman) when the wearer does not intend to copy this player or the unbelievers?

The Shaykh replied:

This is to be considered respect and esteem for the Kafir. As long as he is wearing clothes upon which is written the name of the Kafir, or a picture of him, this is respect and esteem for the Kafir. It is not allowed to do this; the least that can be said about it is that it is haram (forbidden in Islam). If [the wearer really does] respect and esteem [the Kafir], he is in danger of apostasy (leaving the fold of Islam). Yes.

It has been reported that Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen Rahimahullaah was asked:

Regarding what some khateebs do when they deliver their khutbahs, they give their khutbahs topics relevant to current events, if the time of Israa’ and Mi’raaj comes around they speak about it, drawing benefits from it, warning from innovations and mistakes done that day, what is the ruling on this?

It was reported that he answered:

That is good, meaning that a person makes his khutbah relative to certain occasions. That is good, and it is how most of the khutbah’s of the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) were, when something happened that needed to be addressed he stood up and gave a khutbah (about it), even if it wasn’t Jumu’ah. So for a person to give consideration to current situations and focus his khutbahs on them is good. For example, in Ramadhaan, he speaks about Ramadhaan, at Hajj time he speaks about Hajj, and in Rabee’ al Awwal he speaks about hijrah, meaning: he considers occasions, there is no problem with that. It is even a proof that the khateeb has understanding and wisdom.

However, there is an issue here that some imaams do, they deliver a khutbah about a topic and then read relative verses of the Qur’aan about that topic (in Salaat al Jumu’ah). This is what is considered an innovation (bid’ah), since the Messenger (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) used to keep to the reading of Sab-bih (Soorah al ‘Alaa) and al Ghaashiyah, or al Jumu’ah and al Munaafiqoon, and he did not used to consider the subject of the khutbah (when choosing verses to read in the prayer).

Imaam Aboo Uthmaan as-Saaboonee (d.449H) (rahimahullah) said:

And one of the distinguishing signs of Ahlus-Sunnah is their love for the Imaams of the Sunnah, its Scholars, its helpers, and its close allies, and their hatred for the leaders of innovation who call to the Hell-Fire and who direct their associates and companions to the home of torment destruction. Allaah, the Sublime, has adorned the hearts of Ahlus-Sunnah, and the light of their hearts with love for the Scholars of the Sunnah, as a bounty from Him, Whose Magnificence is perfect and Sublime.
