Hadith Related To Allahumma Rahmataka
Abu Bakrah, may Allaah be pleased with him, reported that the Messenger of Allaah, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam, said:
The supplication of the one in distress is:
O Allaah, Your Mercy is what I yearn and hope for, so do not entrust me to myself, not even for the blink of an eye. Also, set all my affairs straight; there is no deity worthy of worship besides You.
Your Mercy is what I yearn and hope for,” he, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam, gave precedence to Mercy over seeking and mentioning what he years for in order to show restriction, as in, I only yearn for Your Mercy.
Do not entrust me to myself, let alone someone else, because if You leave me to myself, You would be entrusting me and leaving me to weakness, fault, sin, and mistakes.
Al-Mannaawi, may Allaah have mercy on him, said: He ended with the phrase of monotheism to show that supplication helps the distressed one and removes their distress if they have presence of heart.
Whoever testifies to Allaah’s unity while also coupling determination with presence of mind, then it is likely and appropriate that their distress be removed in this life, and be shown Mercy and have their levels raised in the Hereafter.
The occasion of this supplication by using the phrase of monotheism to remove distress is that the phrase of monotheism illuminates the heart, radiates the soul, and if the heart is illuminated, distress is removed from it.
When he, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam, said: Glorified are You, meaning, I declare You transcendent above being rendered incapable by anything.
