Download PDF: [S] Du’a to Protect their Property
Humaid bin Hilaal – may Allah be pleased with him – narrates:
I once appeared in front of the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – and he showed me a house. There were ladies in the house and there were twelve goats and a weavers reed through which cotton was spun. The lady had gone out with the Muslims for Jihad and when she returned, one goat and the weavers reed was missing.
He then made Du’a, “O My Lord! You had given a Promise that whoever leaves on the Path of Allah, You will protect their property and life and yet, my weaver’s reed and goat has gone missing. I am complaining to You of both things.”
The Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – declared, “Allah Almighty gave immense importance to this desperate voice. In the morning, the female found both items in her house.”
The Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – then mentioned to the blessed Ashaab that they could also go and verify this themselves. However, the blessed companion who was sitting in front replied, “O Prophet of Allah! I have accepted this and have brought Imaan on this.” (Musnad Imam Ahmed)
