أبى رحمه الله قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن يعقوب بن يزيد، عن محمد بن أبى عمير، عن حفص بن البختري، عن أبى عبد الله عليه السلام: في قول الله عزوجل: (وإبراهيم الذي وفي) قال: انه يقول إذا أصبح وأمسى، أصبحت وربى محمود، أصبحت لا أشرك بالله شيئا، ولا ادعوا مع الله إلها آخر ولا اتخذ من دونه وليا، فسمى بذلك عبدا شكورا.


1. My father said, ‘Sa’ad Bin Abdullah narrated to us, from Yaqoub Bin Yazeed, from Muhammad Bin Abu Umeyr, from hafs Bin Al Bakhtary, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) regarding the Words of Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic [53:37] And (of) Ibrahim who fulfilled it. He (a.s.) said: ‘He (as) used to say when it was the morning and evening: ‘And my (as) Lord (azwj) is the Praised One. I (as) wake up in the morning and I (as) do not associate anything with Allah (azwj), nor do I (as) supplicate to another god but Allah (azwj), nor do I (as) take a Guardian apart from Allah (azwj)’. So he (as) was Named, due to that, as a thankful servant’.
