Recommended Posts

Reciting 'inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un' when the lamp goes out

Question

Please provide the narration and its reference, wherein Rasulullah (sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said 'inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un' when the light of the lamp went out, and his beloved wife, Sayyidah 'Aaishah (radiyallahu 'anha) then asked regarding why he (sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said 'inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un'.

Answer

 

Imam Abu Dawud (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration in Al Marasil.

'Imran Al Qasir (rahimahullah) says, 'Nabi's (sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) lantern went out so he recited 'inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un'. Sayyidah 'Aaishah (radiyallahu 'anha) exclaimed, 'This is only a lantern!' Nabi (sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said, 'Anything that causes discomfort to a believer is a calamity.' [referred to as 'musibah' in the Quran and therefore one should recite inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un]

(Al Marasil, Hadith: 412. Also see: Tafsir Qurtubi and Ad Durrul Manthur, Surah Al Baqarah, Verse: 156)

And Allah Ta'ala Knows best.
