Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) saying, “Allah, the Exalted, has said: ‘O son of Adam! I shall go on forgiving you so long as you pray to Me and aspire for My forgiveness whatever may be your sins. O son of Adam! I do not care even if your sins should pile up to the sky and should you beg pardon of Me, I would forgive you. O son of Adam! If you come to Me with an earthful of sins and meet Me, not associating anything with Me in worship, I will certainly grant you as much pardon as will fill the earth.”‘[At-Tirmidhi].

Joseph Priestley and the Discovery of Oxygen

عَنْ أَبِى هُرَيْرَةَ – رضى الله عنه -؛ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ – صلى الله عليه وسلم:«قَالَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ: يُؤْذِينِى ابْنُ آدَمَ؛ يَسُبُّ الدَّهْرَ، وَأَنَا الدَّهْرُ، بِيَدِى الأَمْرُ، أُقَلِّبُ اللَّيْلَ وَالنَّهَارَ». البخاري

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said (which means): Allah said: Sons of Adam inveigh against [the vicissitudes of] Time, and I am -The creator of incidents that happen in the- Time, in My hand is the night and the day”(Bukhari & Muslim). Comments: As the Almighty God is the Ordainer of all things – based on His absolute wisdom, Fairness, Mercy and all attributes- and when people inveigh against misfortunes that are part of Time is tantamount to inveighing against Him.

“And your Lord inspired the female bees to take (build) its houses (hives) on mountains, trees, and in (people’s) gardens Then (you female bee) eat from all the fruits and (you female bee) follow the ways of your Lord laid down (for you). There emerges from their bellies a drink, varying in colors, in which there is healing (cure) for people. In that, (there) is a sign for a people who give thought” (Al-Na’hl, 16: 68-69).

The Prophet ﷺ said (in the meaning), “Whenever a Muslim supplicates Allah, He grants his supplication or avert a harm from him of equal proportions, as long as he does not supplicate for something sinful or something that would cut off the ties of kinship.” Thereupon someone said: Then we shall supplicate plenty. The Prophet ﷺ said: Allah is more plentiful in responding.” [at-Tirmidhi, Al–Hakim’s version adds: “…Or lays up an equivalent reward for him.”].

One Nation, Under God With Liberty and Justice for All

Over the years, prayer has always been a central part of the inaugural ceremonies. Clergy of all faiths have been invited to offer invocations. Often in our lifetime, Rev. Billy Graham was called to lead prayer, quoting liberally from Sacred Scripture, for example in 1989: “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it” (Ps. 127). Many, if not all, of the clergy recalled our history as enshrined in some of our most sacred documents, for example: “One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”.more: BOSTONPILOT.COM
