Hadith & Seerah, The Teachings of the Holy Prophet, The Ways of the Prophet (SAWS) / Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

Hadrat Abu Hurairah (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated the Messenger of ALLAH as saying, “There should be no taking of omens, but the best type is the good omen” He was asked what a good omen was and replied, “A good word which one of you hears from anyone or from any source.” [Bukhari, Muslim, Mishkat]

Urwa – bin ‘Amir (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that when he mentioned about taking omens to the Messenger of ALLAH (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) he replied, “The best type is the good omen, and a Muslim is not turned back from anything because of an omen. When anyone of you sees anything which he dislikes i.e. omen, he should say,

“Oh ALLAH! thou alone bringest good things, thou alone avertest evil things and there is no might or power, but in ALLAH”. (Abu Daud, Mishkat)
