I have heard quite a lot about surah al-Najm. It is one of the favorite surahs of many people I know.
Today, while reading about the Tafseer of this surah, I got to know about something very interesting.
In the discussion ‘how many times and when Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) saw angel Jibreel (AS) in his original form’, I came across one narration.
Imam Ahmad recorded that `Abdullah bin `Abbas said, “The Prophet asked Jibril to appear himself to him in his original shape and Jibril said to him, `Invoke your Lord.’ The Prophet invoked his Lord the Exalted and Most Honored, and a great huge figure appeared to him…(the narration still continues)
I was wondering, there are two great figures in the equation; one’ the best of human beings on the earth’ and the other ‘the best among the angels’. Still, when one of them wished, the other one told him to invoke Allaah SWT for his wish. Angel Jibreel waited for Allaah’s command to appear in his original form and clearly showed how bound he was in front of Allaah’s command. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) showed his submission by instantly invoking Allaah SWT for his wish. And, the Lord of the worlds Listened.
What about me and you who sin day and night? How desperately we need to make duas.
Do not think what is spreading has come by itself and will disappear by itself.
Make dua. Make dua. Make dua.
It is not just a minor cold and fever. Economies are crumbling. Mosques have shut their doors. Wake up, my brothers and sisters. Wake up.
Sharing with you a very beautiful dua ❤️ (though it has to be recited daily) so much relevant it is today.
Let’s ask Allaah SWT together…
“I seek refuge in the complete words of Allah which neither the good person nor the corrupt can exceed, from the evil of all that He created and from that which He spread and from that which He made and from the evil that descends from the sky and the evil of that ascends in it and from the evil of what is created in the earth and the evil of what comes out of it and from the trials of the night and day and from the visitations of the night and day, except for one that knocks with good, O Merciful One!”.
