WELFARE IN THE TWO WORLDS PRAYER FOR PEACE IN THIS WORLD AND THE NEXT


Beams of Divine Light, Hadith & Seerah, The Ways of the Prophet (SAWS) / Saturday, August 16th, 2008

1. It is reported that Hadrat Abu Bakr Siddiq (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) said:

“I heard the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) say, “Pray for faith and peace, for next to faith there is nothing better with which one has been favoured than peace”.

In this tradition the Holy Prophet has classed peace in this world together with peace in the next. It is a fact that a man’s affairs in the two worlds cannot be set right without faith and peace, since faith helps in averting punishment in the Hereafter, and peace liberates the mind and body from disease.

2. In view of the importance accorded to peace, we shall describe the noble Sunnah on the subject, Anyone who goes through it, will find that the Holy Prophet’s Sunnah is invariably the most perfect way of living, assuring the well being and comfort of both the body and soul in this world and the next. [Zad-ul-Ma’âd]

Tradition: Transmit from me even if it be a single verse.
