Oh Allaah, Benefit Me By That Which You Have Taught Me

Excerpt:
quote:
On the authority of Anas ibn Maalik (radi Allahu 'anhu) who said: The Messenger of Allaah (sallaahu 'alayhi wasallam) used to say (what means):

Oh Allaah, benefit me by that which you have taught me, teach me that which will benefit me, and provide me with knowledge that will benefit me.
quote:
Allahumman fa'nee bi-maa 'allam-ta-nee wa 'allim-nee maa yanfa'u-nee war zuq-nee 'ilman yanfa'u-nee
[Collected by an-Nasaa'ee in al-Kubraa: 7868; and al-Haakim: 1:510]


Excerpt of Shaikh Saalih al-Fawzaan's explanation of the above hadeeth:  

quote:
"Oh Allaah, benefit me by that which you have taught me..."

(This is because) a person could have knowledge of something but not gain any benefit from it, and his knowledge (would then) become a proof against him. He would become like a donkey carrying books, carrying around knowledge but not receiving anything from them. So the intent is not merely to gain knowledge. However, the intent is (to gain) knowledge and action, the knowledge that benefits (its possessor).

Subhanak Allaahuma wa bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk  

If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah (subhanahu wa taa'ala), and if I erred, then that is from me and shaytan.
