|Authentic Supplications of the Prophet
About Minor and Great Afflictions Upon the Believer (133)
| And she said: The Messenger of Allah
entered upon Abi Salãmata and his eyes were staring fixedly.
So he closed them, then he said: "When the soul is grabbed the sight
follows it," some of his family clamored. He then said: "Do not invoke
upon yourselves anything but good, because the Angels are saying 'Aameen'
[O' Allah answer] to what you are saying." He then said: Allãhumma
'ighfir li 'Abi Salamata, warfa` darajatahu fil mahdiyyeena, wakhlufhu
fee `aqibihi fil ghabireena, waghfir lanã wa lahu yã
rabbal `ãlameena, wafsah lahu fee qabrihi, wa nawwir lahu feehi
(155) O' my 'ilãh I ask
Your forgiveness for Abi Salãmata, that You raise his rank
among those who are guided, grant him succession in his descendants
who remain, forgive us and him O' Lord of the Worlds; grant him
spaciousness in his grave, and make light in it for him.
