May You Be Honeyed

هُوَ الَّذِي أَنزَلَ عَلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ مِنْهُ آيَاتٌ مُّحْكَمَاتٌ هُنَّ أُمُّ الْكِتَابِ وَأُخَرُ مُتَشَابِهَاتٌ ۖ فَأَمَّا الَّذِينَ فِي قُلُوبِهِمْ زَيْغٌ فَيَتَّبِعُونَ مَا تَشَابَهَ مِنْهُ ابْتِغَاءَ الْفِتْنَةِ وَابْتِغَاءَ تَأْوِيلِهِ ۗ وَمَا يَعْلَمُ تَأْوِيلَهُ إِلَّا اللَّهُ ۗ وَالرَّاسِخُونَ فِي الْعِلْمِ يَقُولُونَ آمَنَّا بِهِ كُلٌّ مِّنْ عِندِ رَبِّنَا ۗ وَمَا يَذَّكَّرُ إِلَّا أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ

رَبَّنَا لَا تُزِغْ قُلُوبَنَا بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَيْتَنَا وَهَبْ لَنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ رَحْمَةً ۚ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْوَهَّابُ

It is He who has sent down to you, [O Muhammad], the Book; in it are verses [that are] precise – they are the foundation of the Book – and others unspecific. As for those in whose hearts is deviation [from truth], they will follow that of it which is unspecific, seeking discord and seeking an interpretation [suitable to them]. And no one knows its [true] interpretation except Allah . But those firm in knowledge say, “We believe in it. All [of it] is from our Lord.” And no one will be reminded except those of understanding.

[Who say], “Our Lord, let not our hearts deviate after You have guided us and grant us from Yourself mercy. Indeed, You are the Bestower.

Surah Ali ‘Imran, 3:8

May you all be Honeyed by Allah (عسّلكم الله جميعاً)

The Prophet, may Allah exalt his mention, said:

“If Allah loves a person, he is honeyed by Him,”

They asked: ‘what does honeying mean?’

He said, “Allah opens for him the door of a righteous deed before his death, and keeps him (firm) on it until his death”

[Narrated by Ahmad 17819]

Imam Albanee rahimahullah said:

and the sign of this honeying is that everyone becomes pleased with that person as this has been proven in a ‘Marfoo addition to this hadith (..until everyone becomes pleased with him)

[Silsilah as-Sahihah 1114]

يقال بأن الشيخ الألباني رحمه الله يدعوا لمن صنع إليه معروفا بقوله: عسّلك الله

It’s said, that Shaykh al-Albani used to supplicate for the one who did a favor by saying: “may you be honeyed by Allah”.

[Musnad al-Imaam Ahmad, #17438. Authenticated by al-Albanee in Sahih al- Jaami’]
