Invocation Against Enemies of Islam (Ahadith 2577 – 2585)


Hadith no. 2576 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 181 :
Narrated by Abu Ishaq
A man asked Al-Bara’ (radiallaahu `anhu), “O Abu ‘Umara! Did you all flee on the day (of the battle) of Hunain?” He replied, “No, by Allah! Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) did not flee, but his young unarmed companions passed by the archers of the tribe of Hawazin and Bani Nasr whose arrows hardly missed a target, and they threw arrows at them hardly missing a shot. So the Muslims retreated towards the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) while he was riding his white mule which was being led by his cousin Abu Sufyan bin Al-Harith bin ‘Abdul Muttalib. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) dismounted and invoked Allah for victory; then he said, ‘I am the Prophet, without a lie; I am the son of ‘Abdul Muttalib, and then he arranged his companions in rows.”

Today’s Ahadith:

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 182 :
Narrated by ‘Ali (radiallaahu `anhu)
When it was the day of the battle of Al-Ahzab (i.e. the clans), Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “O Allah! Fill their (i.e. the infidels’) houses and graves with fire as they busied us so much that we did not perform the prayer (i.e. ‘Asr) till the sun set.”

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 183 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) used to recite the following invocations during Qunut: “O Allah! Save Salama bin Hisham. O Allah! Save Al-Walid bin Al-Walid. O Allah! Save ‘Aiyash bin Rabi’a O Allah ! Save the weak Muslims. O Allah! Be very hard on Mudar tribe. O Allah! Afflict them with years (of famine) similar to the (famine) years of the time of Prophet Joseph.”

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 184 :
Narrated by ‘Abdullah bin Abi Aufa (radiallaahu `anhu)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) invoked evil upon the pagans on the day (of the battle) of Al-Ahzab, saying, “O Allah! The Revealer of the Holy Book, the Swift-Taker of Accounts, O Allah, defeat Al-Ahzab (i.e. the clans), O Allah, defeat them and shake them.”

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 185 :
Narrated by Abdullah (radiallaahu `anhu)
Once the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was offering the prayer in the shade of the Ka’ba. Abu Jahl and some Quraishi men sent somebody to bring the abdominal contents of a she-camel which had been slaughtered somewhere in Mecca, and when he brought them, they put them over the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam). Then Fatima (i.e. the Prophet’s daughter) came and threw them away from him, and he said, “O Allah! Destroy (the pagans of) Quraish; O Allah! Destroy Quraish; O Allah Destroy Quraish,” naming especially Abu Jahl bin Hisham, ‘Utba bin Rabi’a, Shaiba bin Rabi’a, Al Walid bin ‘Utba, Ubai bin Khalaf and ‘Uqba bin Abi Mitt. (The narrator, ‘Abdullah added, “I saw them all killed and thrown in the Badr well).

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 186 :
Narrated by ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa)
Once the Jews came to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and said, “Death be upon you.” So I cursed them. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “What is the matter?” I said, “Have you not heard what they said?” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Have you not heard what I replied (to them)? (I said), (‘The same is upon you.’)”

I feel sorry for these people, they made the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) pray against themselves. Who do you think Allah will accept from? The Jews who cursed our Prophet, or His beloved Prophet himself who returned the favor?

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 187 :
Narrated by ‘Abdullah bin Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) wrote a letter to Caesar saying, “If you reject Islam, you will be responsible for the sins of the peasants (i.e. your people).”

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 188 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu)
Tufail bin ‘Amr Ad-Dausi and his companions came to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! The people of the tribe of Daus disobeyed and refused to follow you; so invoke Allah against them.” The people said, “The tribe of Daus is ruined.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “O Allah! Give guidance to the people of Daus, and let them embrace Islam.”

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 189 :
Narrated by Anas (radiallaahu `anhu)
When the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) intended to write a letter to the ruler of the Byzantines, he was told that those people did not read any letter unless it was stamped with a seal. So, the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) got a silver ring — as if I were just looking at its white glitter on his hand — and stamped on it the expression “Muhammad, Apostle of Allah”.

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 190 :
Narrated by ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) sent his letter to Khusrau and ordered his messenger to hand it over to the Governor of Bahrain who was to hand it over to Khusrau. So, when Khusrau read the letter he tore it. Said bin Al-Musaiyab said, “The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) then invoked Allah to disperse them with full dispersion, (destroy them (i.e. Khusrau and his followers) severely)”.

You might have noticed in all these accounts that Prophet didn’t make dua against a person or people before giving them fair warnings and chances to turn to Allah. This is the Sunnah. We must not jump to cursing others and want bad things t happen to them just because they disobeyed or disrespected us once. Give people fair chances, wouldn’t you want to be given more and more chances by Allah?
