Lesson

It is being narrated about those goody people (may Allah be pleased with them), who cooperated with the Prophets and the Messengers (peace be upon them) in the Path of Allah Almighty, that they do neither evade to sacrifice their wealth, body and soul, nor show laziness, nor feel weakness, nor they are restrained, and they remain steadfast. Even then, they are not proud. They use to bend their head of submission and gratefulness before Allah Almighty. Their method of praying from Allah Almighty is much big proof of their good disposition itself.

They begged most humbly, sincerely with their hearts and respectfully, “O our Lord! ‘ig-fir  lanaa  zunuubanaa - (conceal our sins and evil doings, draw the curtain of Your Mercy on our mistakes and ambiguities, pardon us from our weaknesses and forgive us for our sins). ‘israa-fanaa  fiii  ‘amrinaa  - (keep our wasted efforts secret also and forgive). sabbit  ‘aqdaamanaa - (make our foothold sure) bestow us steadfastness. wan-surnaa  ‘alal- qawmil-kaafiriin - {and give us victory over the disbelieving folk, who do not believe in You, who are against Your Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) and who are enemy of Your Religion (Islam)}.

It is ordained as reply of the above-mentioned supplication, “Allah gave them the reward of the world and the good reward of the Hereafter. Allah loves those whose deeds are good”.
