Saying Alhamdulillah in all situations!

April 28, 2009



لَقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِي رَسُولِ اللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ لِمَنْ كَانَ يَرْجُو اللَّهَ وَالْيَوْمَ الْآخِرَ وَذَكَرَ اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا
“There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent example for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and [who] remembers Allah much.” (33:21)
There are many sunan (plural of sunnah) that the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam left for us to learn from and emulate. Unfortunately, many sunan have been forgotten and so we are not aware of them.
Recently going through some changes in my life, I remembered this sunnah that we should revive bi’ithnillah:
‏عن ‏ ‏عائشة ‏ ‏قالت ‏
كان رسول الله ‏ ‏صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ ‏إذا رأى ما يحب قال ‏ ‏الحمد لله الذي بنعمته تتم الصالحات وإذا رأى ما يكره قال الحمد لله على كل حال ‏

Narrated from A’ishah radi Allahu anha, “When the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam saw something that pleased him, he would say: Alhamdulillahil lathee bi ni’matihi tatimmus saalihaat, and when he saw something that displeased him, he would say: Alhamdulillah ‘alaa kuli haal. (Narrated in Sunan Ibn Maajah, classified as Saheeh according to Shaykh Albaani rahimahullah in Silsilatus Saheehah hadeeth 265)

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي بِنِعْمَتِهِ تَتِمُّ الصَّالِحَاتُ Alhamdulillahil lathee bi ni’matihi tatimmus saalihaat means: All praise and thanks are only for Allah, the One who, by His blessing and favor, perfected goodness/good works are accomplished.

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ عَلَى كُلِّ حَالٍ Alhamdulillah ‘alaa kuli haal means: All praise and thanks are only for Allah in all circumstances.

Let’s revive the sunnah of saying Alhamdulillah in all situations inshaAllah!

    As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmat Allah!

    Have you come across any narration(s) that authenticate the following du’aa as a du’aa that was said by the Prophet (‘alayhis-salaatu was-salaam)?

    الحمد لله الذى عافانا مما ابتلى به كثيرا من الناس

    This was the reason we started #AlhamdulillahForSeries. Indeed it gets hard to say Alhamdulillah in difficult situations but it makes the pain easier to bear…alhamdulillah!
