Don’t Forget To Get Your Sins Forgiven Every Time You Eat
Mu’adh bin Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “He who has taken food and says at the end:
الحمد الله الذي أطعمني هذا، ورزقنيه من غير حول مني ولا قوةٍ
‘Al- hamdu lillahi-lladhi at’amani hadha, wa razaqanihi min ghairi haulin minni wa la quwwatin
(All praise is due to Allah Who has given me food to eat and provided it without any endeavour on my part or any strength),’All his past sins will be forgiven.”
Reported by At-Tirmidhee and others, and declared authentic by Albany rahimahullah.
Mentioned by AbdulFattaah Bin Uthman
From Anas Ibn Malik رضي الله عنه that the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وسلم passed by a tree with dry leaves, so he struck it with his staff making the leaves fall then the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وسلم said:
“Indeed saying الحمد لله, سبحان الله, لا إله إلا الله and الله أكبر remove the sins of the slave just as the leaves fall from this tree.
سنن الترمذي رقم ٣٥٣٣ و صحيح الجامع رقم ١٦٠١ خلاصة حكم المحدث الﻷبا ني :حسن
قال رسول الله ﷺ : ما على الأرض أحد يقول لا إله إلا الله ، والله أكبر ، ولا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله ، إلا كفرت عنه خطاياه ولو كانت مثل زبد البحر.
The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ said: “No one upon the earth says;
• Laa Ilaaha Illaallaah • Wallaahu Akbar • Walaa Ḥawla Walaa Quwwata Illaa Billaah
Except that his sins will be expiated from him even if they were to be (abundant) like the foam on the surface of sea.”
● [رواه الترمذي ٣٤٦٠ ، حسنه الألباني]
Note: The mentioned Ḥadeeth speaks of sins they require sincere repentance.
One day we were praying behind the Messenger of Allah ﷺ and when he ﷺ raised his head from the position of ruku` (bowing position),
he said: “Sami Allahu leman hamidah” – ‘Allah hears the one who praises Him’.
A man from behind added:
رَبَّنـا وَلَكَ الحَمْـدُ حَمْـداً كَثـيراً طَيِّـباً مُـبارَكاً فيه
“Rabbanaa wa la kal hamd, hamdan katheeran tayyiban mubaarakan feeh”
‘Our Lord, all praise is due only to You, praise which is abundant, excellent and blessed.’
When we finished [the prayer] the Prophet ﷺ said: ‘Who spoke?’ The man said, ‘I did’. He ﷺ said,
‘Indeed I saw some 30 angels all scuffling to see which one of them could record it.’
Fudayl Ibn ‘Iyaad (rahimahullah) said to ‘Aasim Al-Ahwal:
O you! Do not allow the people’s great number of people to busy you, for indeed the final affair will only be about you besides them.
Beware of wasting your day here and there, for surely this is counted against you, and I have not seen anything more beautiful in seeking or faster in catching than a new good deed for an old bad deed.
