Better Then You Ask
Fatima's life with Ali was rigorous
Ali worked hard as a carrier of water
and she accept a job as a grinder of corn.
There are times when the work made them suffer
Fatima’s hands often injured of hard work
in such a time her husband will be at her side to comfort
Once they have to go to the Prophet
asking permission to have one of the captive of war
for their temporary helper.
But Rasul rejected. "I will not give you…"
The captives were the right of the ummah
and Rasul never indecisive on such a matter
But as a Father, he was so touched
That same day - in the night chill so much
He headed to their home, entered, and said to them:
"stay where you are".
He then give them what they never expected
"I will tell you something
better than that which you asked" he said.
"These are words which Jibril taught me…
you should recited after every Prayer
and when you go to bed"
Those were words of prayer to safeguard their life.
A prayer so precious.
After every Prayer:
Subhaan Allah - Glory be to God ten times,
Alhamdulillah - Praise be to God, ten times,
Allahu Akbar - God is Great, ten times.
And that when you go to bed you should say them
thirty-three times each.
