Our Lord! Bestow On Us From Our Wives And Our Offspring Who Will Be The Comfort of Our Eyes


In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

Saeed Ibn Mansoor said: Hazm reported to us, saying: I heard katheer Ibn Ziyaad asking Al-Hasan about the statement of Allaah (The Most High): [رَبَّنَا هَبۡ لَنَا مِنۡ أَزۡوَٲجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّـٰتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعۡيُنٍ۬] [1] “Our Lord! Bestow on us from our wives and our offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes”, saying: O Abu Saeed! What is this comfort of the eyes; is it in this worldly life or the afterlife? He (Al-Hasan) said: No, rather- by Allaah- it is in this world. He (katheer) said: What is it? He (Al-Hasan) said: By Allaah it is (when) Allaah causes a slave to see (deeds) of obedience to Allaah from his wife, brother and close friend. By Allaah there is nothing more beloved to a Muslim than seeing his (or her) child, or father or a close friend being obedient to Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic]. [2]
