  • CHAPTER No: 65

    None asks Intercession of Allah before His creation

     

    It is narrated from Jubair bin Mut'im (May Allah be pleased with him) that He said:

     

    An A'rabi (a nomadic Arab) came to the (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) and said, "O Messenger of Allah, people are being destroyed, the children are hungry, wealth has perished (the crops are withered and the animals are perishing). So ask your Rabb to send us some rain. For we seek intercession of Allah upon you, and of you upon Allah." The Prophet (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) said, "Subhan Allah! Subhan Allah!"[1] And he continued to do so until the effect of that was apparent on the faces of his Companions. He then said, "Woe to you! Do you know Who Allah is? Allah's Sublimity is far greater than that! There is no intercession of Allah before anyone!"

    (Abu Dawud -As­-Sunnah)

     

    Important issues of the Chapter

     

    1) The Prophet's disapproval and rebuke on saying: "We seek intercession of Allah upon you."

    2) The change in the Prophet (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) from this statement was clear enough to be seen on the faces of the Companions (May Allah be pleased with him) .

    3) The Prophet (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) did not disagree by the request for his intercession before Allah.

    4) The meaning of Subhan Allah.[2]

    5) The Muslims asked the Prophet (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) to pray for rain.
