From Abdullaah bin Mas’ood -RadhiAllaahu anhu- who said:

‘A guest came to the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam, so he sent a message to his wives hoping they had some food, but there was no food with anyone of them, so the Prophet said:

« اللَّهمَّ إنِّي أسألُكَ مِن فضلِكَ ورحمتِك ؛ فإنَّهُ لا يملِكُها إلَّا أنتَ »

‘O Allaah indeed I ask of You for Your Virtue and Your Mercy, indeed no one possesses these except You.’

So I gave him a gift of roasted sheep. The Prophet said:

« هذه من فضل الله ونحن ننتظر الرحمة »

‘This is from the excellence of Allaah and we await Mercy.’

[Collected by Abu Na’eem in al-Hileeyaa and Tabraani in Muajm al-Kabeer and Albaani graded it Saheeh in Silsilah Saheehah no. 1543]

‘Ibn Abi Shaybah collected this hadeeth in his book ‘al-Musanaf’ under the chapter: ‘What a person supplicates with when he is afflicted with hunger or his sustenance is constrained.’

The scholar, al-Ameer as-Sana’ani -Rahimahullaah- said:

‘Regarding ‘O Allaah indeed I ask of You for Your virtue and Your Mercy’

It could be that the things asked for are not mentioned, and it is possible that what was actually asked for was excellence and mercy. Since indeed no one possesses these except You [Allaah]’ : so these two matters are not asked for, except from its possessor.’

[At-Tanweer Sharh al-Jami’ as-Sagheer 3/163]

اللَّهمَّ إنِّي أسألُكَ مِن فضلِكَ

عن عبد الله بن مسعود – رضي الله عنه -قال :

أصابَ النَّبيُّ صلَّى اللَّهُ علَيهِ وسلَّمَ ضيفًا فأرسلَ إلى أزواجِهِ يبتَغي عندَهُنَّ طعامًا فلَم يجِدْ عندَ واحدةٍ منهنَّ فقالَ اللَّهمَّ إنِّي أسألُكَ مِن فضلِكَ ورحمتِكَ ؛ فإنَّهُ لا يملِكُها إلَّا أنتَ فأُهْديَت لهُ شاةٌ مَصليَّةٌ فقالَ هذِهِ مِن فضلِ اللَّهِ ونحنُ ننتَظرُ الرَّحمةَ.

السلسة الصحيحة     (١٥٤٣)

قال العلامة محمَّد بن إسماعيل الأمير الصنعاني

  • – ( اللَّهم إني أسألك من فضلك ورحمتك )

يحتمل أنه حذف المسؤول ويحتمل أنه الفضل والرحمة ( فإنه لا يملكها إلا أنت ) فلا يسألان من غير مالكهما .
