Shaqiq on Destiny: O Allah, erase our evil destiny and record us among the blessed

April 3, 2017

Al-A’mash reported: Shaqiq ibn Salamah, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “O Allah, if you have written us among the damned, then wipe it away and record us among the blessed. And if you have written us among the blessed, then affirm it for us. Verily, you wipe away or affirm whatever you will, and with you is the mother of the Book.” (13:39)

عَنِ الْأَعْمَشِ قال شقيق بن سلمة رحمه الله اللَّهُمَّ إِنْ كُنْتَ كَتَبْتَنَا عِنْدَكَ أَشْقِيَاءَ فَامْحُنَا وَاكْتُبْنَا سُعَدَاءَ وَإِنْ كُنْتَ كَتَبْتَنَا سُعَدَاءَ فَأَثْبِتْنَا فَإِنَّكَ تَمْحُو مَا تَشَاءُ وَتُثْبِتُ وَعِنْدَكَ أُمُّ الْكِتَابِ
