A Reminder..

Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

Our Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) used to seek refuge with Allah using these two names: the All -Hearing and the All-Knowing, when he got up for prayer during the night. He would say:

“A‘ūdhu billāh As-Samī‘ Al-‘Alīm min ash-shaytān ar-rajīm, min hamzih wa nafkhihwa nafthih (I seek refuge with Allah, the All-Hearing, the All- Knowing, from the accursed devil, from his whispering, arrogance, and his poetry).”

[Narrated by Abu Dāwūd; Sahīh (authentic)]

He also used to seek refuge with Allah from any harm that could afflict him using these two names: the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing.

He said:“Whoever says:

‘Bismillāhi al-ladhi la yadurru ma‘a ismihi shay’un fi al-ardi wa la fi as-samā’ wa huwa As-Samī‘ Al-‘Alīm (in the name of Allah with Whose name nothing in the earth or the heaven can cause harm, and He is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing)’ three times in the evening will not be hit by a sudden affliction till the morning, and whoever says it three times in the morning will not be hit by a sudden affliction till the evening.”

[Narrated by Abu Dāwūd; Sahīh (authentic)]

If you bear this name “As-Samī‘” in your mind and heart, you will constantly feel close to Him, Exalted be He.

O Allah, the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing, make us among those who supplicate You and You answer their supplication and those who implore You and You show mercy to them.
