And as for the Prophet's saying: "Wa As'aluka Kalimatul-Haqqi fir-Rida wal Ghadab," it contains asking Allah to support a person to say the truth either when he is satisfied or angry. Saying the truth about people in the case of anger is so dear because anger incites a person to say falsehood and do injustice. Therefore, Allah praised His Servants who forgive when they are angry without doing injustice or oppression. Allah (Glory be to Him) says: "And when they are angry, they forgive." [Surat Ash-Shura: 37]. Moreover, those who do not say but the truth in anger and in satisfaction, it will be a proof to their strong faith and prove that they control themselves well. It was reported in the Hadith that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "The strong is not the one who overcomes the people by his strength, but the strong is the one who controls himself while in anger." [Sahih Al Bukhari: No. 6114].

As for the Prophet's saying: "Wa As'alukal-Qasda fil Faqr wal-Ghina," i.e., to be moderate during poverty and richness. So, if a person is poor, he does not fear that his sustenance is reduced and does not burden himself beyond its capacity as Allah (Glory be to Him) says: "And let not your hand be tied (like a miser) to your neck, nor stretch it forth to its utmost reach (like a spendthrift), so that you become blameworthy and in severe poverty." [Surat Al Isra': 29].

If a person is rich, his richness does not incite him to be extravagant. Allah (Glory be to Him) says: "And those who, when they spend, are neither extravagant nor niggardly, but hold a medium (way) between those (extremes)." [Surat Al Furqan: 67].

As for the Prophet's saying: "Wa As'aluka Na`iman la Yanfadu," the bliss which does not end is the bliss of the Hereafter as Allah (Glory be to Him) says: "Whatever is with you, will be exhausted, and whatever is with Allâh (of good deeds) will remain." [Surat An-Nahl: 96]. Allah (Glory be to Him) says: "(It will be said to them): Verily, this is Our Provision which will never finish." [Surat Sad: 54].

As for the Prophet's saying: "Wa As'aluka Qurrata `Aynin la Tanqati`u," the meaning of Qurrata `Aynin is the joy of the eyes which is part of the bliss that may be ceaseless or everlasting. Whoever enjoys the world shall enjoy the temporary bliss and his gladness shall end although his joy is mixed by fear and disturbance, therefore a believer does not enjoy the world but enjoys the love of Allah, Dhikr, and keeping to His Obedience as the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "But my comfort has been provided in Salah.'" [Sunan An-Nasa'y, No. 3879, and Al Albany (may Allah bestow mercy on his soul) graded it as authentic in Sahih Al Jami`, No. 3098].

Whoever obtains that bliss has the ceaseless bliss which will never end in the world, in the transition life, and in the Hereafter.

As for the Prophet's saying: "Wa As'alukar-Rida Ba`dal-Qada'," the Prophet asked for satisfaction after the decree because in that case the true satisfaction takes place. As for satisfaction before the Decree of Allah, it is just an intention for a person to show patience when the Decree takes place, but satisfaction is ascertained after the Decree.

As for the Prophet's saying: "Wa As'aluka Bardal `Ayshi Ba`dal-Mawt," indicates that good life is after death because life before death is disturbed by the mention of death which is enough to disturb anything, so how about concerns, grief, diseases, missing the beloved ones, and old age...etc.

As for the Prophet's saying: "Wa As'aluka Ladh-dhatan-Nazari ila wajhika Wash-shawqa ila Liqa'ika fi Ghayri Darra' Mudirrah wala Fitnatin Mudillah," this has combined the dearest thing in the world which is yearning to meet Allah (Glory be to Him) and the dearest thing in the Hereafter which is looking at the honorable face of Allah. When this meeting is based on the absence of anything that may harm a person in the world or tries him in his religion, the Prophet said: without being harmed or misled.

Believers' vision to their lord on the Day of Recompense is confirmed by many proofs and is only denied by those who have gone astray, moreover those shall be in the highest ranks of Paradise and shall receive the utmost pleasure. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "When the people who deserve Paradise enter Paradise, Allah the Blessed and the Exalted would say to them: Do you wish that I give you anything more? They would say: Have not You brightened our faces? Have not You made us enter Paradise and saved us from Fire? He (the narrator) said: He (Allah) would lift the veil, and nothing of the things they were given would be dearer to them than the sight of their Lord, the Mighty and the Glorious." [Reported by Muslim: No. 181].

We ask Allah the Glorious to provide us with His Favors.

As for the Prophet's saying: "Allahumma Zayyina Bizinatil-Iman, waj`alna Hudatan Muhtadin," zinatil-Iman includes the adornment of the heart by sound belief and righteous hearty actions, the adornment of the tongue is by Dhikr, reciting the Qur'an, and enjoining good and forbidding evil and suchlike, and the adornment of organs is by righteous actions and obedience.

As for the Prophet's saying: "waj`alna Hudatan Muhtadin," i.e., to grant us and others guidance which is the best degree a person may get, and a person should know the truth and follow it, and teach it to others, thereby he would be guided. We ask Allah to guide us and make us guiding and guided.
