Hadith on Certainty: Be determined and certain in your supplications

March 19, 2011

Anas ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “When one of you supplicates, let him be determined in the supplication and he should not say: O Allah, give me if you will. There is no one to coerce Allah.

Source: Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 5979, Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 2678

Grade: Muttafaqun Alayhi (authenticity agreed upon) according to Al-Bukhari and Muslim

Ibn Hajar said, “The meaning of determination is to be persistent in it and to affirm that what is asked will occur.”

عَنْ أَنَسٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم‏ إِذَا دَعَا أَحَدُكُمْ فَلْيَعْزِمْ فِي الدُّعَاءِ وَلاَ يَقُلِ اللَّهُمَّ إِنْ شِئْتَ فَأَعْطِنِي فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لاَ مُسْتَكْرِهَ لَه

5979 صحيح البخاري كتاب الدعوات باب ليعزم المسألة فإنه لا مكره له

2678 صحيح مسلم كتاب الذكر والدعاء والتوبة والاستغفار باب العزم بالدعاء ولا يقل إن شئت

وقال ابن حجر وَمَعْنَى الْأَمْرِ بِالْعَزْمِ الْجِدُّ فِيهِ وَأَنْ يَجْزِمَ بِوُقُوعِ مَطْلُوبِهِ
