Calling Upon Allah By His Majestic Names and Attributes

عَنْ أَنَسٍ أَنَّهُ كَانَ مَعَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُعَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ جَالِسًا وَرَجُلٌ يُصَلِّي ثُمَّ دَعَا اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَبِأَنَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ الْمَنَّانُ بَدِيعُ السَّمَوَاتِوَالْأَرْضِ يَا ذَا الْجَلَالِ وَالْإِكْرَامِ يَا حَيُّ يَا قَيُّومُ فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّصَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لَقَدْ دَعَا اللَّهَ بِاسْمِهِ الْعَظِيمِ الَّذِيإِذَا دُعِيَ بِهِ أَجَابَ وَإِذَا سُئِلَ بِهِ أَعْطَى

Narrated Anas ibn Malik [may Allah be pleased with him]:

I was sitting with the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) and a man was offering prayer. He then made supplication: O Allah, indeed I ask You since all praise is due to You, there is none worthy of worship but You, the Bestower, the Creator of the heavens and earth, O Possessor of majesty and honor, O Ever-living, O-Eternal One.

The Prophet (PBUH) then said: He has supplicated Allah using His Greatest Name, when supplicated by this name, He answers, and when asked by this name He gives.

Grade: Authentic (Sunan Abu Daud; An Nasaie; Sunan Ibn Hibban)

Lessons:

Among the best times and situations to supplicate is after the obligatory prayers.

Whoever calls upon Allah by His Names and attributes, his supplication will not be rejected. One example that can be used is:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ بِأَنَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ الْمَنَّانُ بَدِيعُ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ يَا ذَا الْجَلَالِ وَالْإِكْرَامِ يَا حَيُّ يَا قَيُّومُ

Let us beseech Allah by His magnificent Names and attributes.

  1. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. But imagine if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this blog could definitely be one of the best in its field. Superb blog!
