Chapter 106: What to say upon receiving pleasing or displeasing news
1 du'a
كَانَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم إِذَا أَتَاهُ الْأَمْرُ يَسُرُّهُ قَالَ:
(الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي بِنِعْمَتِهِ تَتِمُّ الصَّالِحَاتُ)
وَإِذَا أَتَاهُ الْأَمْرُ يَكْرَهُهُ قَالَ:
(الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ عَلَى كُلِّ حَالٍ)
Alḥamdu lillāhi ‘lladhi bi ni`matihi tatimmuṣ-ṣāliḥāt.
Alḥamdu lillāhi `alā kulli ḥāl.
When something happened that pleased him, the Prophet (ﷺ) used to say:
Praise is to Allah Who by His blessings all good things are perfected.
And if something happened that displeased him, he used to say:
Praise is to Allah in all circumstances.
