عن أبي الفضل العباس بن عبد المطلب -رضي الله عنه- قال: قلتُ: يا رسول الله عَلِّمْنِي شيئا أسأله الله -تعالى-، قال: «سَلُوا اللهَ َالعافية» فمكثتُ أياما،ً ثم جِئْتُ فقلتُ: يا رسول الله علمني شيئا أسأله الله -تعالى-، قال لي: «يا عباس، يا عَم رسول الله، سَلُوا الله العافية في الدنيا والآخرة». [صحيح لغيره.] - [رواه الترمذي وأحمد.] المزيــد ...
Abu al-Fadl ibn al-‘Abbās ibn ‘Abdul-Mattalib (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that he said: "O Messenger of Allah, teach me something that I may ask Allah the Almighty for." He replied: "Ask Allah for safety." After some days, I went to him and said: "O Messenger of Allah, teach me something that I may ask Allah the Almighty for." He said to me: "O ‘Abbās, O uncle of the Messenger of Allah, ask Allah for safety in this life and the Hereafter." [Sahih/Authentic by virtue of corroborating evidence] - [At-Tirmidhi - Ahmad]
This is one of the Hadīths that represent the succinct speech of the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) The Prophet's uncle Al-‘Abbās (may Allah be pleased with him) asked the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) to teach him a supplication. This supplication came in a very concise statement, yet with profound indication, and encompassed the entire goodness of this life and the Hereafter. Al-‘Abbās's statement indicates he needs a simple verbal supplication that brings him a great reward. So, the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Ask Allah for safety.” The use of the word safety, without restricting it to a certain kind of safety, indicates that it is general safety from each and every evil in this life and in the Hereafter.
