Sins fall like leaves from a Tree

Sins fall like leaves from a Tree*

Abbas Abu Yahya

Anas bin Malik Radi Allaahu anhu that the Messenger of Allaah ﷺ walked passed a tree which had dry leaves and he hit that tree with his stick and the leaves began to fall, the Messenger of Allaah ﷺ said:

الحمدَ للهِ وسبحانَ اللهِ
ولا إله إلا اللهُ واللهُ أكبرُ

‘Indeed al-Hamdu lillaahi, wa Subhana Allaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu akbar, cause the sins of a slave of Allaah to fall just like the leaves of this tree are falling.’

Sunnan Tirmidhi & Saheeh al-Jamia’ no. 1601 declared Hasan by al-Albaani

[عن أنس بن مالك:] أن النبيَّ ﷺ مَرَّ بشجرةٍ يابسةِ الوَرَقِ فضَرَبَها بعصاه فتناثر الوَرَقُ فقال إن الحمدَ للهِ وسبحانَ اللهِ ولا إله إلا اللهُ واللهُ أكبرُ لتُساقِطُ من ذنوبِ العبدِ كما تَساقَطَ وَرَقُ الشجرةِ هذه

الترمذي (ت ٢٧٩)، سنن الترمذي ٣٥٣٣
