Companion, son of a Companion. He fought 19 battles with the Messenger of
Allaah (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam). He died in Madinah aged 70.
The Meaning of the Ahadeeth
The hadeeth explains the status of supplication and that it is from the greatest
of the types of worship and from the greatest of the rights of Allaah, such that
if the slave directs it to other than Allaah, then he becomes a mushrik. He has
taken a rival and equal for Allaah in Uloohiyah and in His right to be
worshipped alone. And this is rebellion against Allaah and opposition to His
Prophets and denial of His Messengers whose dawah and message all agreed
upon the obligation to single out Allaah alone for worship, and the greatest
aspect of worship is supplication.
The Messenger of Allaah said: “Supplication is worship.”
And Allaah, the Most High, said
“Invoke your Lord with humility and in secret. He likes not the aggressors.”
And He, the Most High, said
“And your Lord said: “Invoke Me, I will respond to your invocation….”
And He said, prohibiting supplication to other than Him:
“And invoke not besides Allaah any such that will neither profit you nor
hurt you, but if you did so, you shall certainly be one of the Dhalimoon
(transgressors, wrongdoers).” [10:106]
And He said:
“So invoke not with Allaah another ilaah (diety) lest you should be among
those who receive punishment.” [42:213]
So calling upon other than Allaah acknowledges Uloohiyah to the one called
upon. And Allaahs refuge is sought. SCL100005 @ WWW.SALAFIPUBLICATIONS.COM 2 A Treatise on the Prophetic Ahaadeeths He, the Most High, said reprimanding the Mushrikeen:
“This is because when Allaah alone was invoked, you disbelieved, but when
partners were joined to Him, you believed. So the judgement is only with
Allaah, the Most High, the Most Great!
It is He Who shows you His ayaat and sends down provision for you from the
sky. And none remembers but those who turn in repentance.
So call you upon Allaah making worship pure for Him, however much the
disbelievers may hate it.” [40:12-14]
And He, the Most High, said, giving the ruling of misguidance and failure
upon whoever supplicates to other than Allaah:
“And who is more astray than one who invokes besides Allaah, such as will
not answer him till the Day of Resurrection, and who are unaware of their
invocations to them? And when the people are gathered they (the false
deities) will become their enemies and deny their worshipping.” [46:5-6]
And He, the Most High, said:
Such is Allaah, your Lord; His is the kingdom. And those whom you invoke
or call upon instead of Him own not even a Qitmir (the thin membrane over
a date stone).
If you invoke them, they hear not your call; and if they were to hear, they
could not grant it (your request) to you. An on the Day of Resurrection, they
will disown your worshipping them. And none can inform you like Him
Who is the All-Knower. [35:13-14]
And from these texts and their likes from the noble Qur’aan and the purified
Sunnah, the importance of du’aa (supplication) and its status in the Islaamic
aqeedah becomes clear to the one whose vision has been opened, his heart
enlightened and his chest expanded by Allaah.
And due to this status, Allaah has promised that whoever does not submit to
Him through supplication will enter the Fire, humiliated and disgraced. So He
said: SCL100005 @ WWW.SALAFIPUBLICATIONS.COM 3 A Treatise on the Prophetic Ahaadeeths “Verily those who are too proud to worship Me will enter the Fire in
And the one who supplicates to other than Allaah has been promised the Fire,
as occurs in the Hadeeth, “Whoever dies while still supplicating to other than Allaah
as a rival (to Him) will enter the Fire.”
The Benefits of the Hadeeth
1) The status of supplication and that it is the greatest of all the types of worship of Allaah.
2) Supplication to other than Allaah is major shirk and great oppression.
3) The one who supplicates to other than Allaah has only the Fire as
recompense, if he dies upon that. SCL100005 @ WWW.SALAFIPUBLICATIONS.COM 4 ...
