 How it is to say “What Allah may will and you (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) may will” 

 

Qutailah (May Allah be pleased with him) narrated: A Jew came to the Prophet (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) and said, “Your people commit Shirk when they say: ‘By the Will of Allah and (also) with your will’, and say: ‘By Ka’bah.'” Thereafter, the Prophet (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) commanded (the Companions (May Allah be pleased with him)) to swear by saying: “By the Rabb (Lord) of the Ka ‘bah and to say “By the Will of Allah and then with your will.” [An-Nasa’i mentioned this Hadith and graded it Sahih.]

An-Nasa’i also reported the Hadith of Abdullah bin Abbas (May Allah be pleased with him): Once a man carne to the Prophet (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) and said, “With the Will of Allah and (also) with your will”, he (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) then said, “Have you made me an associate with Allah? Rather it is ‘what Allah Alone wills.’ ”

Ibn Majah reported from Tufail (May Allah be pleased with him) ‘Aishah’s brother from her mother’s side, that he narrated:
I had a dream in which I carne upon a group of Jews and said to them, “You are indeed a good people had you not claimed Uzair (May Allah be pleased with him) the son of Allah.” Then they said, “You too are good if you do not say: ‘What Allah may will and Muhammad may will.’

After that, I carne upon a group of Christians and said to them, “You are indeed a good people if you do not claim Christ, the son of Allah,” then they said, “You too are good if you do not say:
‘What Allah may will and Muhammad may will.'” Then the following morning, I narrated the above event to some, and carne to the Prophet (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him)  and repeated the whole event. He (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) asked, “Have you told this to anybody else?” I said, “Yes”, Then he (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) went to his pulpit and after offering praises to Allah said, “Tufail had a dream which he already had communicated to some of you, You used to say a sentence which due to some hesitation (that Allah did not reveal in this regard) I could not prevent you from, Henceforth, do not say: ‘What Allah may will and Muhammad may will’ but say: ‘What Allah may will Alone.’ ”

Important issues of the Chapter

1) The Jews were aware of the consequences of minor Shirk.
2) Man’s understanding of the Shirk if he wishes to.

3) The statement of the Prophet (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) “Have you made me an associate with Allah.” How condemnable is the poet who said: “O noblest of the creatures, there is none for me but you to seek refuge in distress.”

4) This is not the major Shirk as the Prophet (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) said: “I was prevented from doing so for such and such …”

5) A true dream is a kind of revelation.

6) The sound and true dream may be reason for initiating some rulings in the Shari’ah.
