The Sealed Nectar

 The Sealed Nectar by Shaykh Safi ur-Rahman

He (peace be upun him) was the most perfect in glorifying Allah, nay all his utterances were in praise of Allah Al-Mighty. Whatever he ordered, forbade or set as legislation for the Nation of Islam, was in essence a glorification of Allah. Even his silence was a glorification of Allah by his heart. His glorification and praise of Allah was running with his breath, whether he was standing up on his feet or sitting or lying on his side or walking or riding an animal, or dismounting or travelling or staying home, blessings and peace be upon him.

a. His Guidance in Glorifying Allah in the Morning and Evening

When morning came he (peace be upun him) would say:
“We are this morning in the natural state of Islam on the word of sincerity, in the religion of our prophet, Muhammad, and the way of our father, Abraham, a Muslim inclining toward truth; and he was not of those who associate partners with Allah."
And he (peace be upun him) said: “O Allah, by You we come to the morning and by You we come to the evening. By You we live and by You we die, and to You is the resurrection."
He (peace be upun him) also said: “When morning comes for one of you, say: "Morning has come to us and dominion belongs to Allah, Lord of the worlds. O Allah, I ask of You the good of this day, its success, its victory, its light, its blessing and its right guidance. And I seek refuge in You from the evil it contains and the evil that follows it."
Then when evening came he would say something similar.

He (peace be upun him) said "The best supplication for forgiveness is to say: "O Allah, You are my Lord - there is no god but You. You created me and I am Your servant; and I uphold Your covenant and [my] promise to You as much as I am able. I seek refuge in You from the evil I have done. I acknowledge before You my sin, so forgive me. Indeed, there is none who can forgive sins except You."

He (peace be upun him) added, "Whoever recites it at morning with firm faith in it and dies the same day will enter Paradise. And whoever recites it in the evening with firm faith in it and dies the same day will enter Paradise."

And he (peace be upun him) said:
“Whoever recites every morning: "La ilaaha'ill-Allaahu wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul- mulku wa lahul-hamdu wa huwa `ala kulli shay'in qadeer" (There is no god but Allah alone, having no partner. His is sovereignty and to Him is all praise and He is over all things competent) a hundred times daily, will be rewarded the equivalent of freeing ten slaves and one hundred good deeds will be registered for him and one hundred bad deeds will be erased. That day he will be protected from Satan until evening, and no one will come with something better than that [on the Day of Judgment] except one who has done more."

He (peace be upun him) used to supplicate in the morning and the evening with these supplications:
"O Allah, I ask You for soundness in this world and the Hereafter. O Allah, I ask You for pardon and soundness in my religion and my world, my family and my property. O Allah, cover my faults and calm my fears. O Allah protect me from before me, from behind me, on my right, on my left and above me. And I seek refuge in your grandeur from being seized from below."

And he (peace be upun him) said: ''There is not a servant [of Allah] who recites every morning and every evening: 'In the name of Allah with whose name nothing in the earth or the heavens can cause harm, and He is the Hearing, the Knowing' three times but that nothing will harm him.''

Abu Bakr as-Siddiq (رضي الله عنه) asked him: "O Messenger of Allah, teach me what to say when morning comes and evening comes." So he (peace be upun him) replied, "Say:
''O Allah, Creator of the heavens and earth, Knower of the unseen and the visible, Lord, sovereign and owner of all things, I testify that there is no god but You. I seek refuge in You from the evil of myself and the evil of Satan and his partnership, or that I bring harm upon myself, or bring it to any Muslim'." He (peace be upun him) added: "Say it in the morning, in the evening and when you go to bed."

b. His Guidance in Glorifying Allah When Leaving or Entering the Home

When going out of his house, the Prophet (peace be upun him) used to say: “Bismillaah, tawakkaltu `ala Allaah" (In the name of Allah, I rely upon Allah), and then add: "O Allah, I seek refuge in You from leading someone astray or being led astray, from causing someone to slip or being caused to slip, from wronging someone or being wronged and behaving badly or someone behaving badly against me."

He (peace be upun him) said: "He who says upon leaving his home: 'Bismillaah, tawakkaltu `ala Allaah, la hawla wa la quwwata illa billaah' (In the name of Allah, I rely upon Allah. There is no might and no power except through Allah) will be told, 'You have been guided, given enough and protected, and Satan will stay away from him'."

When he (peace be upun him) went out for the fajr prayer, he would say:
“O Allah, make light in my heart, light on my tongue, light in my hearing, light in my sight, light behind me, light in front of me, light above me and light beneath me. O Allah, make great my light."

And he (peace be upun him) said: "When a man enters his house he should say, 'O Allah, I ask of You the best entrance and the best exit. In the name of Allah we enter and we rely upon Allah, our Lord,' Then he should greet his family."

c. His Guidance in Mentioning Allah When Entering a Mosque and Leaving It

When entering a mosque, the Prophet (peace be upun him) would recite: “A`udhu billaahil-`atheemi wa bi-wajhihil-kareemi wa bi-sultaanihil-qadeemi minash-shaytaanir-rajeem.'' (I seek refuge in Allah, the Great and in his noble countenance and his primordial authority from Satan, the rejected. He (peace be upun him) said, "When someone says that, Satan says: "He has been protected from me for the rest of the day.”

He (peace be upun him) also said: "When one of you enters the mosque, let him invoke blessings upon the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upun him),, and let him say: 'Allaahumma iftah lee abwaaba rahmatik' (O Allah, open for me the gates of Your mercy), and upon leaving let him say: 'Allaahumma innee as'aluka min fadhlik.' (O Allah, I ask You of your bounty)''

d. His Guidance Upon Sighting the Crescent
When he (peace be upun him) sighted the new moon of the month, he would say: “O Allah, let it come upon us in prosperity and faith, in peace and Islam. Our Lord and your Lord is Allah."

e. His Guidance Upon Sneezing and Yawning

It is confirmed that he (peace be upun him) said: “Allah likes the one sneezing, and dislikes the one yawning. So if one of you sneezes, and praises Allah, then it is the duty of anyone who hears him to say, 'Yarhamuk-Allaah' (May Allah grant you mercy). As for yawning, it is caused by Satan, so if one of you is going to yawn, let him hold it back as much as he can, because when someone yawns Satan laughs at him''

When he (peace be upun him) sneezed, he would cover his mouth with his hand or his garment and suppress the sound.

When he (peace be upun him) sneezed and someone said to him, "Yarhamuk-Allaah", he would answer, ''Yarhamuna-Allaahu wa iyyakum wa yaghfiru lana wa lakum'' (May Allah have mercy on us and you, and may He forgive us and you).

And he (peace be upun him) said: “When one of you sneezes let him say: 'Al-hamdu lillaah' (May Allah have mercy on you), and his brother or companion should say to him: 'Yarhamuk-Allah' (May Allah have mercy on you). Then, when he says, 'Yarhamuk-Allah', he should say: 'Yahdeekumullaahu wa yuslihu baalakum' (May Allah guide you and better your affairs).”

He (peace be upun him) also said:
“If one of you sneezes and praises Allah (saying ‘Al-hamdulillah’), then say: 'Yarhamuk-Allah', but if he does not praise Allah, then do not say it to him''
When someone sneezed more than three times, he did not say it but only remarked, “That man has a cold.”

It was narrated that the Jews would pretend to sneeze in his presence expecting him to respond by saying 'May Allah have mercy on you', but he (peace be upun him) would only say: 'Yahdeekum-ullaahu wa yuslihu baalakum.' (May Allah guide you and amend your condition.)

f. His Guidance in Supplication Upon Seeing an Afflicted Person
Anyone who sees an afflicted person and says: 'Al-hamdu lil-laahilladhi `aafaani mimmabtalaaka bihi wa fadh-dhalani `ala katheerin mimman khalaqa tafdheela' (Praise to Allah who has exempted me from that by which He has tested you and has given me preference over most of those He has created) will not be touched by that affliction, no matter what it is.''

g. His Guidance When Hearing the Sound of a Donkey or a Rooster
He (peace be upun him) ordered his people when hearing the bray of a donkey to seek refuge in Allah from Satan, the rejected, and upon hearing a cock, to ask Allah of His bounty.

h. His Guidance Concerning Severe Anger
The Prophet (peace be upun him) instructed anyone who became enraged to perform wudhu', and to sit down if he was standing, lie down if he was sitting and to seek refuge in Allah from Satan, the rejected.
