Question and Answer with Shaykh Najmuddeen bn Sulaymaan

Questioner: May Allaah lengthen your live sir!

Shaykh Najmuddeen bn Sulaymaan: Upon goodness!

Questioner: May Allaah make our strivings that which will benefit us on the Day of Qiyaamah.

Shaykh Najmuddeen bn Sulaymaan: Aameen!

Questioner: Sir, my question is, when you were teaching us the supplication after ablution, you said, ‘Ash-hadu anlaa ilaaha illaLlaah wahdahu laa shareekalah wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan abduhu wa rosuuluh Allaahumma aj’alni min al-tawwaabeen waj’alni…

Shaykh Najmuddeen bn Sulaymaan: Cuts in…min al-mutatahhireen

Questioner: …min al-mutatahhireen

Shaykh Najmuddeen bn Sulaymaan: Na’am!

Questioner: wa ja’alni mina ‘ibaadika Saaliheen.

Shaykh Najmuddeen bn Sulaymaan: Na’am!

Questioner: I usually say the supplication completely to “wa ja’alni mina ‘ibaadika Saaliheen”.

Shaykh Najmuddeen bn Sulaymaan: Na’am!

Questioner: So there was a day a brother drew my attention to the fact that it (i.e. “wa ja’alni mina ‘ibaadika Saaliheen”) is not inclusive.

Shaykh Najmuddeen bn Sulaymaan: Yes, there is a lengthy discussion on the last part of the supplication. There are some scholars who hold that the narrations that mentioned it are all weak but if combined they will add a good meaning to it. But that which brings peace of mind is to stop at “waj’alni min al-mutatahhireen”. Na’am!

Questioner: JazaakumuLlaahu khayran!

Shaykh Najmuddeen bn Sulaymaan: Wa antum fajazaakumuLlaahu khayran!
