8- Prompting a Dying Person to Say the Shahahdah
“Say the testification, ‘la illah ila Allaah’ (there is none worthy of worship except Allaah) a lot, before there comes a separation between that and yourselves, and prompt the one who has reached death to say it.”
Silsilah Saheehah : 467
From the Fiqh of the hadeeth:
The hadeeth shows the legislation of prompting the dying person to say the testification of Tawheed, hoping that he will say it and become successful.
The meaning of ‘…..the one who has reached death….’is the one whose death has now approached him, and he is still in this world where he has obligations, and it is possible that he benefits from the one who prompts him with the Shahahdah, thereby he says it, and becomes from the people of Paradise.
As for prompting him after his death, then along with that being a Bida’ which has not been mentioned in the Sunnah, and also there is no benefit from this, since he has left the world where he has obligations to the world of recompense, and he does not have the ability to say the Shahahdah, << to warn the one who is alive >>
The way to prompt the dying person is to order him to say the Shahahdah. It is mentioned in some books, that you yourself should say it and not order the dying person with it, which is in opposition to the Sunnah of the Prophet –sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam.
9- The Excellence of Saying ‘La illaha ila Allaah’
“If the slave says: la illah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu akbar (there is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, and Allaah is the Greatest) Allaah Azza Wa Jaal says: my slave has spoken the truth, there is none worthy of worship except Me, and I am the Greatest.
And if the slave says: la illah ila Allaah Wahdahu, then Allaah Azza Wa Jaal says: There is none worthy of worship except Me Alone.
And if the slave says: La ilaha ila Allaahu lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu (There is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, to Him belongs the Dominion and for Him is all praise)
Then Allaah Azza Wa Jaal Says: My slave has spoken the truth, There is none worthy of worship in truth except Me, to Me belongs the Dominion and all praise is for Me.
And if the slave says: la illah ila Allaah, La hawla wa la quwwata illa billaa (There is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, there is no capability nor is there any power except with Allaah.)
Then Allaah Azza Wa Jaal Says: There is none worthy of worship in truth except Me, there is no capability nor is there any power except with Me.)
Whoever is blessed to say this when death approaches him, then the fire will not touch him.”
Silsilah Saheehah: 139

“A statement of relief from hardship:
la illah ila Allaah al-Haleem al-Kareem, la illah ila Allaah al-‘Aleeul al-Atheem, la illah ila Allaah Rabbus-samaawaat as-Saba’ wa Rabbul ‘Arsh al-‘Atheem.
(None is worthy of worship except Allaah the Haleem and the Kareem, None is worthy of worship except Allaah the Most High and the Most Great, none is worthy of worship except Allaah Lord of the seven heavens and the Lord of the great ‘Arsh).”
Silsilah Saheehah: 2045

“Whoever says in the morning time:
‘There is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah Alone, He has no partners, He has the Dominion and for Him is all praise, He gives life and He takes life, and He is capable of all things.’
La ilaha ila Allaahu wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu yuhyee wa youmeet wa huwa ala kulli shayin qadeer
Ten times, then Allaah writes ten rewards for every time he says this one. Ten bad deeds are erased. Allaah raises him up by ten grades, and it is equivalent to him freeing ten slaves. It is a protection for him from the beginning of the day until the end of the day. He will not do an action that day better than it, and if he says it during the evening then he gets the same reward.”
Silsilah Saheehah: 2523
10- Tawheed of Dua’
“Supplicate to Allaah Alone, Who, if any harm comes to you and you supplicate to Him then He relieves you of it. Who, if you lose your provisions in a desolate place and you supplicate to Him, He returns your goods. Who if you are affected by drought and you supplicate to Him, He cultivates the land for you.”
