Asking Allah for Lasting faith & Beneficial knowledge

Mu’aawiyah ibn Qurrah reports that Abu ad-Dardaa used to say:

“We ask Allah for a lasting faith (Iman), true certainty and beneficial knowledge.”


Transliteration:Nas’alu Allaha Imaanan Da’iman, Wa Yaqinan Saadiqan Wa ‘Ilman Nafi’an

Mu’aawiyah ibn Qurrah then said:

“So this indicates that there is a type of faith that does not last, and a type of certainty that is not true, and a type of knowledge that is not beneficial.”

[“Ibn Battah, Al-Ibanah Al-Kubra Vol. 2 p498”]
