Hadith Explanation

Wish for Everybody in Prayer

“A bedouin entered the masjid of the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam), offered his prayers and then said: ‘O Allah! Grant Your favour to me and to Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam), and to none else besides us.’ On hearing this, the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) observed: ‘You have narrowed the vast limits of Allah’s blessings.’” [Bukhari]

Avoid prejudice and selfishness in prayer. Ask for others what you would like others to ask for you.

Do not fall into the error of considering the vast blessings with Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) as limited. Don’t pray for the granting of His bounty to you alone since He has much more than that to give. To ask only for yourself is akin to refusing the river and begging only for a drop.
