Asking Allāh That We Be Pleased with What He Ordains


Asking Allāh That We Be Satisfied with His Decisions

:٢٦٣/٢ قال مالك في الموطأ
كان عمر بن عبد العزيز يدعو:
اللهم رضني بقضائك وأسعدني بقدرك حتى لا أحب تأخير شيء عجلته ولا تعجيل شيء أخرته.

Shaikh ʿAlī al-addādī said:

[Imām] Mālik said in Al-Muwaṭṭaʾ, vol. 2, p. 263:

ʿUmar ibn ʿAbd al-ʿAziz used to ask [of Allāh]:

اللَّهُمَّ رَضِّنِي بِقَضَائِكَ وَأَسعِدنِي بِقَدَرِكَ حَتَّى لاَ أُحِبَّ تَأْخِيرَ شَيءٍ عَجَّلتَهُ وَلاَ تَعجِيلَ شَيءٍ أَخَّرتَهُ

O Allāh, make me pleased with and accept that which you have ordained, and make me happy with what you have written [of destiny], to the extent I don’t love having anything put off for later that you have made come sooner, nor having anything come sooner that you have put off for later.
