Download PDF: [S] Nabi Ebrahim’s Advice to us (Islamic story)
Hadrat Sayyiduna Abdullah ibn Mas’ud – may Allah be pleased with him – narrates that the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – has stated that, “During the night of Me’raj I met Nabi Ebrahim – peace be upon him. He said to me, ‘O Muhammad! Kindly convey my Salaam to your Ummah and inform them that the sand of Jannah is very clean and the water is also very pure. However, it is also a bleak field (that needs to be cultivated). Its method of cultivation is ‘Subhaanal laahi wal hamdu lillaahi walaa ilaaha illal laahu wallaahu Akbar.’” (Tirmidi Shareef).
In another report it is mentioned that Nabi Ebrahim – peace be upon him – had stated, “Please inform your Ummah that they should certainly cultivate Jannah because its sand is clean and its earth is expansive.”
The Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – asked, “What is the cultivation of Jannah?”
Nabi Ebrahim – peace be upon him – replied, “It is ‘Laa hawla wa laa qu wataa’.” (Musnad Imam Ahmed; Al Asraa wal Me’raj)
