Random Benefit: You have neither the power nor the forbearance!


The Prophet visited one of the Muslims who had become as feeble as a chicken, and inquired about his health. Allaah’s Messenger asked, "Did you supplicate Allaah for anything or beg Him for it?" He replied, "Yes, I asked in these words, ‘O Allaah, punish me in this world with the punishment that You are going to inflict on me in the Hereafter’.

Allaah’s Messenger remarked, "Hallowed be Allaah! You have neither the power nor the forbearance to take upon yourself the burden of Allaah’s punishment. Why did you not say this, ‘O Allaah, grant us all the good of the world, and all the good of the Hereafter, and save us from the torment of the fire?"’

Then the Prophet made this supplication for him and he was all right. {Saheeh Muslim}
