Prophet’s Dua On Return From Taif

On his return from Taif, anguished and heartbroken, Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) prayed: “To You my Lord I confess my weakness, my lack of wit and my inconsequence before people. Dear Merciful Lord, you are Master of the weak and Master of those who depend upon me. How much longer shall they revile me? How much longer shall my enemies hold sway over me? As long as You are not angry with me then nothing else can matter. Your might is greatest before me and so I seek refuge in the Light of Your Countenance, in the Light that drives away all darkness and in which all things of this world and the next find meaning. Whether You visit upon me Your Wrath or relieve me of my burden, such is Your Right until You are pleased. Truly there is no power nor glory but in You.” [Ibn Hisham: As-Seera an-Nabawiyyah]

We should all consider the Prophet’s words carefully when he said, “As long as You are not angry with me then nothing else can matter.” The concern of anyone who raises the call to Allah is simply the pleasure of Allah, this is all that matters. After this, let happen whatever must be, for the reactions of others are not of great consequence so long as your aim is to seek the Pleasure of Allah. [Al-Wala Wal-Bara by Muhammad Saeed Al-Qahtani]
