Hadith Explanation

Allah Talks About You

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “No people gather in any of the houses of Allah to recite the Book of Allah and to study it between them but that the Sakeena descends on them and mercy covers them and the angels surround them and Allah remembers them to those in His presence.” [Sahih Muslim]

Sakeena is the special tranquility that Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) causes to descend as a unique favour on those who study the Book of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) – the Quran. It is a coveted gift that cannot be bought with any amount of money. It is the “happiness” that is the ultimate quest of every human, which is sought through relationships, money, careers, thrills, vacations, etc. This gift from Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) is the peace of mind and soul that no amount of drink, drug, anti-depressant or tranquilizer, can induce.

When you sit to remember Allah (subhana wa ta’ala), Sakeena descends on you, Allah’s mercy engulfs you, His angels surround you, and Allah Himself takes your name and mentions you to those in His company. What an honour!
