Hadith #1

حدثنا أبو نصر محمد بن أحمد بن تميم السرخسي الفقيه بها قال: حدثنا أبو لبيد محمد بن إدريس الشامي، قال: حدثنا محمد بن مهاجر البغدادي، قال: حدثنا إسماعيل بن إبراهيم، قال: حدثني الحريري، عن أبي الورد بن تمامة، عن اللجلاج، عن معاذ بن جبل، قال كنت مع النبي صلى الله عليه وآله فمر برجل يدعو وهو يقول: " اللهم إني أسألك الصبر " فقال له النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: سألت البلاء فاسأل الله العافية. ومر صلى الله عليه وآله برجل وهو يقول: "اللهم إني أسألك تمام النعمة ". فقال: ابن آدم وهل تدري ما تمام النعمة؟ الخلاص من النار ودخول الجنة. ومر صلى الله عليه وآله برجل وهو يدعو ويقول: " يا ذا الجلال والاكرام " فقال له: قد استجيب لك فسل.

1. We were told by Abu Nasr, Muhammed bin Ahmad bin Tamim al-Sarakhsi, the Jurist, in it [1], that he said: We were told by Abu Lubaid, Muhammed bin Idrees al-Shami, that he said: We were told by Muhammed bin Muhajir al-Baghdadi, that he said: We were told by Isma’eel bin Ibrahim, that he said: I was told by Hareeri, from Abu’l-Ward bin Tamama, from Lajlaj, from Mu’adh bin Jabal, that he said: I was with the Prophet, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, and a man passed by whilst saying: «O Allah, I ask You for patience». Then the Prophet, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, said: You have asked for affliction, so ask Allah for comfort. He, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, also passed by whilst he was saying: «O Allah, I ask you for the perfection of the grace.» Then he said: (O) Son of Adam, and do you know what the perfection of the grace is? (It is) Salvation from the Fire and entrance to Paradise. He, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, passed by a man whilst he was praying and saying: «O the One of Glory and Generosity». Then he said to him: «It has been responded to you, so ask.»
