Sunnats and Aadaab of Sitting in a Deeni Discourse – Part 9

Musjid Nabawi -inside1. Upon the completion of the gathering, one should recite:

 سُبْحَانَكَ اللَّهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ

Glory be to You, O Allah, with all Praise; I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except You, I seek Your forgiveness and turn to You in repentance.

عن أبى برزة الأسلمى رضي الله عنه قال كان رسول الله  صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول بأخرة إذا أراد أن يقوم من المجلس سبحانك اللهم وبحمدك أشهد أن لا إله إلا أنت أستغفرك وأتوب إليك فقال رجل يا رسول الله إنك لتقول قولا ما كنت تقوله فيما مضى قال كفارة لما يكون فى المجلس (أبو داود رقم 4861)

Hadhrat Abu Barzah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that it was the mubaarak habit of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) to recite the following duaa at the end of the gathering whenever he intended to stand up to leave the gathering. One of the Sahaabah enquired, ‘O Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), (we notice that) you recite a duaa at the end of the gathering which you never used to recite previously.’  Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied: “I recite this duaa at the end of a gathering in order that it may serve as an atonement for (the mistakes) that had occurred during the gathering.”

 سُبْحَانَكَ اللَّهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ

Note

The above-mentioned duaa is not confined to being recited at the completion of a Deeni discourse. Rather, it may be recited at the end of any gathering (whether the gathering is a deeni or worldly gathering). The effect of this duaa is that it will be a means of kaffaarah (atonement) for the slips and mistakes that had occurred during the gathering.

عن أبي هريرة قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم من جلس في مجلس فكثر فيه لغطه فقال قبل أن يقوم من مجلسه ذلك سبحانك اللهم وبحمدك أشهد أن لا إله إلا أنت استغفرك وأتوب إليك إلا غفر له ما كان في مجلسه ذلك (ترمذي رقم 3433)

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Whoever had sat in a gathering wherein a lot of futile talk had taken place, and he recites the following duaa before standing up to leave the gathering, whatever mistakes had occurred during the gathering will be forgiven.”

 سُبْحَانَكَ اللَّهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ
