Goodness of this world in 9 things -Jaame Masjid, Rustenburg

Jumuah, at Jaame Masjid Rustenburg on November 20, 2020

Allah Ta’ala mentions in the Holy Qur’an a practice prevailing in days of jahiliyyah (ignorance) where people, due to a lack of understanding and knowledge, would make Du’a only for dunya; for them, there would be no share in Akhirah. Allah Ta’ala then rectifies this Du’a and teaches the Believers the correct manner in which to supplicate:
“Rabbana aatina fiddunya hasanataw wa fil Aakhirati hasanataw waqina ‘azaabannaar”

To request for dunya alone is insufficient, as it can come to a person with harm and benefit, therefore it is better to seek Hasanah (goodness) in dunya and Akhirah, and seek Najaat (salvation) and Hifazat (protection) from hellfire. This particular Du’a is considered to be one of the most comprehensives Du?as as it summarises and encapsulates the goodness of the entire collection of Du’as from the Qur’an and Ahadith. Whenever Nabi-Karim Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam made Du’a, he would include this Du’a; when people asked him for Du’a, he made Du’a in these words and he would make this Du?a no less than 100 times a day! This is the Du’a stipulated to be made in every round of every Tawaaf – an indication that Allah Ta’ala wants to accept this Du’a on our behalf. ‘Allamah Alusi (R) explains Hasanah of dunya to be 9 things: Afiyah, a pious wife, pious children, pure wealth, others good opinion of one, knowledge of Deen, understanding of Deen, pious company and assistance over enemies.
