A very inspiring khutbah given by our brother and teacher Abu Abdillah Hasan as-Somalee (hafidhahullah) at Masjid Chaguanas, Trinidad during MPUBS and Isalm.TT T&T Summer Conference 2014.
Our brother Hasan expounded on the explanation of the hadeeth of where Mu’adh ibn Jabal (radi Allaahu ‘anhu) was taught a beautiful dua’ by the Prophet (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).

Mu’adh (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) took hold of my hand and said:
“O Mu’adh! By Allah I love you, so I advise you to never forget to recite after every prayer:
Allahumma a’innee alaa dhikrika, wa shukrika, wa husni ‘ibaadatika
(O Allah, help me remember You, to be grateful to You, and to worship You in an excellent manner).”
This Hadith stresses the fact that one should seek the Help of Allah for His remembrance, thanksgiving and worship, because one cannot do anything without His Help and Support. It also shows the superiority of Mu’adh (May Allah be pleased with him) and the Prophet’s love for him.
