“O Mu`adh! By Allah I love you…”
Mu`adh (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) took hold of my hand and said,
“O Mu`adh! By Allah I love you, so I advise you to never forget to recite after every prayer:
“Allahumma a`inni ala dhikrika, wa shukrika, wa husni `ibadatika
(O Allah, help me remember You, to be grateful to You, and to worship You in an excellent manner).”
Commentary: This Hadith stresses the fact that one should seek the Help of Allah for His remembrance, thanksgiving and worship, because one cannot do anything without His Help and Support. It also shows the superiority of Mu`adh (May Allah be pleased with him) and the Prophet’s love for him.
