Today’s du’a is from an unknown Bedouin who called to Allah with so much praise he amazed the Prophet ﷺ.
[ Day 17 Du’a ]
يَا مِنْ لا تَرَاهُ العُيُوْنُ، وَلا تُخَالِطُهُ الظُّنُوْنُ، وَلا يَصِفُهُ الوَاصِفُوْنَ، وَلا تُغَيِّرُهُ الحَوَادِثَ، وَلا يَخْشَى الدَّوَائِرَ، يَعْلَمُ مَثَاقِيْلَ الجِبَالِ، وَمَكايِيْلَ البِحَارِ، وَعَدَدَ قَطَرِ الأَمْطَارِ، وَعَدَدَ وَرَقِ الأَشْجَارِ، وَعَدَدَ مَا أَظْلَمَ عَلَيْهِ اللَّيْلُ وَأَشْرَقَ عَلَيْهِ النَّهَارُ، وَلا تُوَارِيْ مِنْهُ سَمَاءٌ سَمَاءً، وَلا أَرْضٌ أَرْضاً، وَلا بَحَرٌ مَا فِيْ قَعْرِهِ، وِلا جَبَلٌ مَا فِيْ وَعْرِهِ، اجْعَلْ خَيْرَ عُمْرِيْ آخِرَهُ، وَخَيْرَ عَمَلَيْ خَوَاتِيْمَهُ، وَخَيْرَ أَيَّامِيْ يِوْمَ أَلقاكَ فِيْهِ
“Oh He whom the eyes do not see, nor can be mixed with doubts, nor can be described by any who describe, nor is changed by any events, nor fears any officer, who knows the weights of the mountains, the measurements of the seas, the number of raindrops, the number of leaves on trees, and the number of whatever is shrouded in the darkness of night and brightened by the light of day, for whom no heaven or earth is concealed, nor a sea in its depths, nor a mountain in its ruggedness! Make the best of my life the end of it, the best of my deeds the last of them, and the best of my days the Day I meet You.”
So now I want to come on so I'm gonna cut to everyone and welcome back to the prayers of the pious.
This is a very special narration because similar to when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam walked by and heard a special prayer from Eben Massoud about the Allahu anhu. He's walking by and he's listening to the prayer of a pious man, but this is an unknown bedwin men, even the Prophet peace be upon him does not know who he is. And this was a dude that would Amaze The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and you have to understand that the Prophet peace be upon him, is more connected to his Lord than anyone else. So he senses that connection, when he hears it from other people. And he appreciates that genuine connection that someone might have with Allah subhanho wa
Taala, even if they don't call upon him, in the most perfect of ways, but they call upon him knowing how perfect he is and how capable he is. So this in this narration, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he walked by this man in the masjid and it's a simple bedwin man, and he heard this man calling out to Allah subhana wa tada with this mind blowing draft and this is truly a mind blowing supplication. I might even have difficulty translating it, to be honest with you. But this man calls upon a line he says, Yeah, man, Tara, how are you? Oh, he whom the eyes do not see what too hard to hold on, on, nor can be mixed with doubts. Well, I also hold whilst the phone nor can be described
by any of those who describe well, to the eautiful However, this nor can be changed by any events, one eye shadow, nor can nor fears any oppressor or any any person of perceived power. Yeah, no, my thought theologie bad. He knows the weights of the mountains, when Mecca, he will be held, and he knows the measurements of the seas. And he knows why the Qatari Empire and he knows the the precise data, the precise drops of raindrops, the number of the raindrops while other the watercolors job, and who knows the number of leaves on the trees. And and then he continues to even mentions Pamela so he's talked about and it's pretty profound, honestly,
saying this, being in nature where there's squirrels around and there's some raindrops that are falling, and beautiful trees around, if you see how he's encompassed thus far in this throughout all of the elements of nature around but he also understands that there are certain things that are not even perceived in terms of nature to him. So he continues after mentioning the amount of leaves that are on the trees. He says why didn't have them early, he laid what ash lock it in the heart. And he knows the number of whatever is shrouded in the darkness of the night and brightens by the light of the day. And he continues to mention those things went out to our demon who was sent out on summer.
What Alden Allah What about heroin, Matthew Carter, he says that those things that for whom no heaven, or he's mentioning about a loss of Hannah Montana, for whom no heaven or Earth is concealed, Nora see in its depths, nor a mountain in its ruggedness. So so far this year, I mean, this man has brought the entire creation into his, into his supplication to Allah. And he hasn't even made an ask of Allah yet. And this teaches us that the thumb of the praise of your Lord can never be exaggerated. So you praise and you praise and you praise. And he hasn't even got to his follow up yet. He hasn't even got to his request yet. And the Prophet peace be upon him is blown away by this
man's dura as he encompasses everything around him in that supplication. And then he makes this drought and you could see if it sounds familiar, he says, watch I'll tell you, how many of you know who was Hadar, Amelie How are tema, who will Hydra Yama, Yama, alpaca, he, he said and make the best of my days, the day or make the best of my life, the end of it, the best of my deeds, the last of them. And the best of my days, the day that I meet you very is pretty much verbatim the drop of a bucket of civic may Allah be pleased with him. The prophets lie Selim has he heard this. He actually appoints the man in the narration to stay with him. And to wait for him to finish this prayer
meeting this bedwin is just getting started. And to inform the Prophet peace be upon him when he's done. The prophets lie some comes back to him and he asked him who he is and where he's from. So he says, I'm just a man from Ben lamb. And the prophets lie. Some of them gives them a gift. And he says to him, Do you know why I'm giving you this gift? He said, Maybe we're related. The prophets lie Selim knows he says it's because of the beauty of your praise the host Nathan attic, the beauty of your praise of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So somehow, this is, you know,
a person doesn't have to be a poet to call upon Allah with beautiful praise. You'd be surprised how poetic you can be when you're sincere. And I think that that's the beauty of this particular
Out of the simple bedwin men who Amaze The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and who supplication would find itself on the tongue of Rebecca Salif, may Allah be pleased with him. So May Allah subhana wa tada the Creator of the heavens and the earth. He who knows the weights of the mountains and the measurements of the sea and the number of raindrops and the number of leaves on the trees and he whose knowledge encompasses in the darkness of the night and the brightness of the day things that we cannot see May Allah subhanaw taala forgive us and make the best of our lives the and of them and make the best of our deeds the last of them and the best of our days the day that we meet
him. llama means is that glow Hayden See you all next time in sha Allah said I want to remind you about a castle
