Back to chapter

1ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ خَالِدٍ عَنِ النَّضْرِ بْنِ سُوَيْدٍ عَنْ يَحْيَى الْحَلَبِيِّ عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ حُرَيْثٍ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) صَلِّ رَكْعَتَيْنِ وَاسْتَخِرِ الله فَوَ الله مَا اسْتَخَارَ الله مُسْلِمٌ إِلاَّ خَارَ لَهُ الْبَتَّةَ.


1. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Muhammad ibn Khalid from al-Nadr ibn al-Suwayd from Yahya al-Halabiy from ‘Amr ibn Hurayth who has said the following: “Abu ’Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘Perform two Rak‘at Salah (prayer) and ask Allah to chose for you what is good. By Allah, if a Muslim asks Allah to choose for him what is good, He certainly chooses for him as such.’”
