The following is a summary translation taken from sahab.net

http://www.sahab.net/forums/showthread.php?t=351059

If you find yourself lazy upon obedience to Allah then be afraid that Allah is averse to your obedience

By Sheik Uthamin

Sheik Muhammad ibn Salih ibn Uthamin may Allah have mercy upon him said in his explanation of the book, Aqeedah of Ahlus Sunnah wa Jamaat in tape number seven?




?but Allah was averse to their being sent forth, so He made them lag behind, and it was said (to them), "Sit you among those who sit (at home)." (Chapter 9 verse 46)

Oh Allah save us?this verse is extremely dangerous and the scale is in His saying, ?but Allah was averse to their being sent forth? meaning in battle.

{?and it was said (to them), "Sit you among those who sit (at home)}

So beware and examine yourself, and if you see yourself being lazy upon doing good deeds then be afraid that Allah is averse to you putting forth good deeds.

Then look at yourself a second time, and make yourself patient and compel yourself upon obedience. So today you do acts of obedience and you are averse to it but tomorrow you do it willingly and effortlessly.

The important point is that this is a severe warning for the one who finds himself hindered from doing good deeds, so perhaps Allah the Exalted is averse to this man being from His obedient slaves therefore He hindered him from obedience.

We ask Allah to assist us upon His remembrance and upon thanking Him, and upon good worship.

Another point in this verse, {?but Allah was averse to their being sent forth, so He made them lag behind, and it was said (to them), "Sit you among those who sit (at home).}

It was not said ? () and He said (to them), "Sit you among those who sit (at home)}

Because Allah does not order with evil, rather () it was said to them sit at home.

Who said stay at home? The soul (says this), no, it wasn?t Allah that said it, but rather it was the soul.

The person?s soul speaks to him saying, ?Sit at home, don?t go this time go another time.

And satan hinders from good

And evil companions hinder from good

So for this reason the doer of the action was removed from this sentence, meaning the one who said the statement so that it would be more comprehensive.

Therefore those who say, ?Sit you among those who sit (at home) are numerous and we mentioned three of them; the soul, satan, and evil companions.

(Explanation of the book, Aqeedah of Ahlus Sunnah wa Jamaat, in tape number seven, second side of the tape from minute 3:16 to 5:22)

This Du`a includes protection from laziness...

Allahumma 'innee 'a'oothu bika minal hammi walhazani, wal'ajzi walkasali, walbukhli waljubni, wa dhala'id-dayni wa ghalabatir-rijaal.

O Allah, I seek refuge in you from grief and sadness, from weakness and from laziness, from miserliness and from cowardice, from being overcome by debt and overpowered by men (i.ei. others).

Al-Bukhari 7/158. See also Al-Asqalani, Fathul-Bari 11/173.

Na'am brother, it's on page 110-111 in my version of Hisnul-Muslim (Dar-us-Salaam's 'Fortress of a Muslim'):
quote:

اللهَمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْهَمِّ وَالْحَزَنِ، وَالْعَجْزِ وَالْكَسَـلِ، وَالْبُخْـلِ وَالْجُبْنِ، وَضَلَعِ الدَّينِ وَغَلَبَةِ الرِّجَالِ


[Edit: I had made a mistake and used "الدِّين" (ad-Deen) instead of "الدَّين" (ad-Dayn) which is how it is written in the book.]

Note: all the words after مِنَ end with kesrah's - they are not easily seen because the letters in the words overlap them.

Seeking refuge from "الكسل" (laziness) is also mentioned on page 76,  in one of the du'aa of Morning and Evening.

Question: Do any of the brother's here know if the translation of "سوء الكبر" (which is mentioned in the Du'aa on page 76) as "helpless old age" is correct? This is one of some translations in this book which I am doubtful of.

BaarakAllahu feekum wa jazakumAllahu khayraa.

What happens if you consider yourself as being ok but a close family member and others feel that you have changed and you use all of your time indulging in worldly affairs such as television and video games and computers when you try to talk or be of some assist the person get upset and say you are pressuring them and they say you are becoming an extremist.Isnt this considered a sign of laziness in worship? How do you handle if the person is your husband or wife and often you wind up falling into the same things hindering you from worship of Allah?

The du'aa of the Morning and Evening in which Laziness is mentioned is (from Hisnul-Muslim - the following is the Morning version; for :

quote:

أَصْبَحْنَا وَأَصْبَحَ الْمُلْكُ لِلّه وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّه؛ لا إله إلاَّ اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ؛ لَهُ المُلْكُ وَلَهُ الحَمْدُ وَهُوَ على كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ؛. رَبِّ أَسْأَلُكَ خَيْرَ مَا في هَذَا اليَوْمِ وَخَيْرَ مَا بَعْدَهُ وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا في هَذَا اليَومِ وَشَرِّ مَا بَعْدَهُ؛ رَبِِّ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الكَسَلِ ؛ وَسُوءِ الكِبَرِ ؛ رَبِّ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ عَذَابٍ فِي النَّارِ وَعَذَابٍ فِي الْقَبْرِ.


Translation given:
quote:
'We have reached the morning and at this very time unto Allaah, belongs all sovereignty , and all praise is for Allaah. None has the right to be worshipped except Allaah, alone, without any partner, to Him belong all sovereignty and praise and He is over all things omnipotent. My Lord, I ask You for the good of this day and the good of what follows it and I take refuge in You from the evil of this day and the evil of what follows it. My Lord, I take refuge in You from laziness and senility. My Lord, I take refuge in You from torment in the Fire and punishment in the grave.'



For the evening version, the underlined portions should be replaced with:
quote:

أَمْسَيْنَا وَأَمْسَى الْمُلْكُ لِلّه
and
quote:

رَبِّ أَسْأَلُكَ خَيْرَ مَا في هَذِهِ اللَّيْلَة وَخَيْرَ مَا بَعْدَهَا وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا في هَذِهِ اللَّيْلَة وَشَرِّ مَا بَعْدَهَا؛


Complete translation:
quote:
'We have reached the evening and at this very time unto Allaah, belongs all sovereignty , and all praise is for Allaah. None has the right to be worshipped except Allaah, alone, without any partner, to Him belong all sovereignty and praise and He is over all things omnipotent. My Lord, I ask You for the good of this night and the good of what follows it and I take refuge in You from the evil of this night and the evil of what follows it. My Lord, I take refuge in You from laziness and senility. My Lord, I take refuge in You from torment in the Fire and punishment in the grave.'

Also, for regarding the du'aa of morning and evening:

quote:
لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له، له الملك وله الحمد وهو على كل شيء قدير
(مرة واحدة عند الكسل).


Meaning: No one has the right to be worshipped except Allah Alone, Who has no partner. His is "the Dominion" (al-Mulk) and His is "the Praise" (al-Hamd) and He is able to do all things.

It is mentioned in Hisnul-Muslim by Sa'eed ibn Wahaf al-Qahtaanee (may Allah reward him), that this should be said at the time of laziness and he brings some references for this du'aa from the Sunan.

mashallah this is a great beneficial thread. The only difficulty is that im unable to find these dua in hisnul muslim. What is the title of the dua that protect against laziness as this is a big fitna for those brought up in the west and cultivated upon laziness

anything good was from allah. All errors were from myself and satan

jazakum allahu khair

assalamu alaykum wa rahmah tullahi wa barakatuhu

BaarakAllaahu feek akhee. The titles (in the order they are presented in this thread) in my version of Hisnul-Muslim are:

34. Innovations in times of worry and grief (du'aa #121, the 2nd in this chapter of Hisnul-Muslim)*
27. Words of remembrance for morning and evening (du'aa #77)
27. Words of remembrance for morning and evening (du'aa #92)

* For this first one, one can search the internet for the explanation of the hadeeth from Fath-ul-Baaree (in Arabic).

Reminder of what Allamah Ibn Uthaymeen (raheemahullaah) said as mentioned in the 1st post above...
quote:
So beware and examine yourself, and if you see yourself being lazy upon doing good deeds then be afraid that Allah is averse to you putting forth good deeds.

Then look at yourself a second time, and make yourself patient and compel yourself upon obedience. So today you do acts of obedience and you are averse to it but tomorrow you do it willingly and effortlessly.
