Fasting People Take Advantage and Supplicate to Allāh – Shaykh Uthaymīn

وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُوا لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُوا بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ

And when My slaves ask you (O Muhammad sallallāhu alaihi wa salam) concerning Me, then (answer them), I am indeed near (to them by My Knowledge). I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me (without any mediator or intercessor). So let them obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may be led aright. (Al-Baqarah: 186)

Benefits Extracted from this Verse for the Fasting Person:

Supplicating to Allāh whilst fasting is one of the times where supplications are most likely to be answered. This is because Allāh mentioned this verse within the verses of fasting. Especially since He spoke about it at the end of His speech regarding the verses of fasting.

Some of the scholars said, There is another benefit extracted from this verse: it is befitting to supplicate at the end of the fasting day, (i.e. before Maghrib, at point of opening fast).

Shaykh Uthaymīn (rahimahullāh) said,

This is one of the best times to supplicate, as the fasting person is weak and the weaker a person is, the more softer and open his heart is.  This person is more likely to turn repentantly to Allāh and to lower and submit himself to Allāh.

People cannot Bestow Blessings Upon Themselves or Others – Shaykh Fawzān

Shaykh Sālih al-Fawzān:

Allah (Subhānahu wa ta’āla) began this great sūrah (Suratul Mulk) with praise and glorification of Himself, and He is the most deserving to be praised and glorified.

The meaning of تبارك (tabāraka) is تعاظم. Allāh is the one who, when performing dhikr of him, blessings are obtained from (when done sincerely for Allāh and in accordance with the sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (sallallāhu alaihi wa salam)). He is the one who sends down blessings and He is the one who bestows blessings on whomsoever He wills.

This word ‘tabāraka’ does not apply except when speaking of Allāh, hence it is not allowed to say to someone “Oh so and so, tabārak upon us”, as some of the ignoramuses say.

However, as for saying to someone, you are “mubārak”, then there is no issue with it, because the meaning of “mubārak” is that Allāh (Subhānahu wa ta’āla) has blessed you and bestowed his blessings upon you.

Allāh (Subhānahu wa ta’āla) said:

‎وَجَعَلَنِي مُبَارَكًا أَيْنَ مَا كُنتُ

“And He has made me blessed wheresoever I be (Sūrah Maryam: 31)
and

‎كِتَابٌ أَنزَلْنَاهُ إِلَيْكَ مُبَارَكٌ

(This is) a Book (the Qur’ān) which We have sent down to you, full of blessings (Sūrah Sād: 29).

Therefore, Allāh is the one who bestows blessings and places blessings in whoever, wherever and whatsoever he wills. As for mankind, they can not bless themselves, indeed it is only Allāh who gives mankind blessings and makes them blessed.

[9] Excerpts From ‘Fiqhul Ad-iyah Wal-Ad-kaar’- [Beneficial Reminder From a Tremendous Supplication of The Night Prayer – (To Be Said After Takbeer And Before Recitation)]

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

The Supplication:

O Allaah! Lord of Jibraa’eel, Meekaa’eel and Israa’feel, The Originator of the heavens and the earth, Knower of the seen and unseen; You are the one who arbitrate between Your servants in that which they differ. Guide me to the truth -by Your Leave – in that which they differ, for verily You guide whom You will to the straight path. [Saheeh Muslim Number 770]

 

Reminders from the supplication by Shaikh Abdur Razzaaq al-Badr [may Allaah preserve him]

 

This supplication contains At-Tawassul [i.e. seeking a means of getting close to Allaah or seeking what one desires by way of affirming and believing] in Allaah’s absolute Lordship over everything and his specific Lordship over these Angels, whom He has given the task [and the means of giving life]; because Jibraa’eel [alayhis-salaam] is given the task to convey the revelation [to the Prophets and Messengers], which is a means of life for the hearts and souls [i.e. guidance to the straight path]; Meekaa’eel [alayhis-salaam] is given the task of directing the  rain drops [wherever Allaah wills], which gives life to the earth and the vegetation, and is a source of life for the animals; and Israa’feel [alayhis salaam] is given the task of blowing the trumpet by way of which the creation will be brought back to life again after death.

[Likewise seeking a means of closeness to Allaah or seeking what one desires by affirming and believing that Allaah] is the Originator of the heavens and the earth – the one who created and brought them into existence, and [affirming and believing in the fact that] by way of His Knowledge, He is the Knower of the seen and unseen; and that Allaah [glorified be He and free is He from all imperfections] is the one who arbitrates between His servants in that which they differ, and [asking Him to] guide us to the truth in that which they differ.

And Hidaayah [Guidance] is to have knowledge of the truth, intending to [reach it] and preferring it over other things. The guided person is that one who acts upon the truth and intending [to reach it], and this is the greatest blessing of Allaah that is bestowed upon a servant. We ask Allaah to guide all of us to the straight path and grant us every good.

The Most Comprehensive of Supplications – Ash-Shaykh Al-Uthaymīn

The Most Comprehensive of Supplications – Ash-Shaykh Al-Uthaymīn

The best of supplications and most comprehensive is His statement:

وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَقُولُ رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

‏And of them there are some who say: “Our Lord! Give us in this world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good, and save us from the torment of the Fire!” (Al-Baqarah: 201)

Thus, this is the most comprehensive of supplications because it combines between the good of the worldly life and the hereafter, and the Messenger of Allāh used to supplications with this a lot.

Therefore a person should supplicate with this supplication and likewise the other authentically reported supplications, so that by way of which he will be carrying out the sunnah from all angles (as is related to supplications).

Ask by Allah’s Face for the Ultimate Goal

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān was asked:

What is the intent of the Messenger’s statement (sallallāhu alaihi wa sallam), Do not ask for anything by Allāh’s Face except Paradise?

He (ḥafidahullāh) answered:

“Yes (that is correct), glorify Allāh’s Face (azza wa jal), and do not ask for anything by it from the coveted objects of the worldly life, only ask by it for Paradise – as a glorification of Allāh’s Face (subhānahu wa ta’āla) – which is the ultimate goal.”
