Hadith Explanation

Noblest Thoughts

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) went out to a circle of his Companions and said, ‘What is it that has caused you to sit together?’ They said, ‘We sat down to remember Allah and praise Him for He has guided us to Islam and been gracious to us.’ He said, ‘By Allah, is that the only thing that made you sit together?’ They said, ‘By Allah, we sat down for that reason alone.’ He said, ‘I did not make you swear out of any suspicion of you, but Jibreel came to me and reported to me that Allah Almighty is boasting about you to the angels.’” [Sahih Muslim]

Imagine! Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) boasting about us! Us? All praise belongs to Him alone. It is His graciousness that He consider us worth talking about, let alone boasting of.

This boasting on the part of Allah Almighty is an indication of the nobility of Dhikr in His sight. The Dhikr that the Companions were engaged in, that caused Allah’s boasting, was mention of Allah’s favours on them and gratitude towards Him for being guided to Islam. These are the noblest thoughts and feelings a human being can have.
