|On Seated Gathering Places (250)|
|The Messenger of Allah said:"No one sits in a seating place in which he utters much confusion, but then says prior to getting up from that seating
place of his: Subhănaka 'allăhumma wa bihamdika, 'ash-hadu 'allă 'ilăha 'illă 'anta, 'astaghfiruka wa 'atoobu 'ilayka(255)|
except that Allah would cover up for him that which occurred in that seating of his".
(255) Glorified are You O' my 'ilăh and I am in your praise, I testify that there is no
'ilăh except You, I ask your forgiveness and repent unto You.
At-Tirmithi said it was comley-sound. Al-Albani agreed with him, and pointed out that a number of people reported it including:
Ibn Hibbăn, and Al-Hăkim who said it was sound according to Muslims conditions. Al-Albăni said that Ath-Thahabi agreed with
him, and that he agreed with the two of them. Al-Albăni included this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #177.

|And in another hadeeth: "Such that if he was in a good gathering, it [the saying] would be like a seal for it, and if
he was in a gathering that was a medley, it would make up for it". |
Al-Albăni said that this was part of the hadeeth of Jubair Bin Mut'im which is reported by An-Nisă'ee, At-Tabarani, and
Al-Hăkim. Al-Hăkim said it was sound according to the conditions of Muslim. He said that Ath-Thahabi agreed with Al-Hăkim,
and that the hadeeth is as they said. Al-Albăni included this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #178. It
is also in Al-Albăni's Silsilah Al-Ahădeeth as-Saheeh(#81).
|On Seated Gathering Places (252)|
|The Messenger of Allah said:"There is not a people that get up from their seated gathering in which they do not mention Allah the exalted except
that they would have gotten up from the like of a donkey's carcass, and it would be something for them to regret". |
Reported by Abu Dawood. Al-Albăni said it was also reported by Al-Hăkim, who said it was sound according to the conditions
of Muslim; that Ath-Thahabi agreed; and that the hadeeth was as they said.
|On Seated Gathering Places (253)|
|It is reported that Ibn 'Umar said: Rarely would the Messenger of Allah get up from a seated gathering till he would supplicate with the following petition for his companions:"'Allăhumma 'aqsim
lană min khashyatika mă tahoolu bihi baynană wa bayna ma'ăseeka, wa min tă'a, wa min tă'atika mă tuballighună bihi jannataka,
wa minal yaqeeni mă tuhawwinu bihi 'alaynă masă'ibad-dunyă, 'allăhumma matti'nă bi'asmă'ina, wa 'absărină, wa quwwatină mă
'ahyaytană, waj'ak hul-wăritha minnă, waj'al tha'rană 'alămen thalamană, wansurnă 'ală men, 'ădănă, wa lă taj'al museebatană
fee deenină, wa lă taj'alid-dunyă 'akbara hammină, wa lă mablagha 'ilmină, wa lă tusallit 'alaynă men lă yarhamună"(256)|
(256) O' my 'ilăh part for us fear of You which You cause to come between us and the acts
of disobedience to You, obedience to You through which You deliver us to your Garden, and of surety with which You make the
calamities of the World easy for us to bear. O' my 'ilăh grant us joy in our hearing, our sight, and our strength so long
as You keep us alive, and make them of the things we leave behind at death [meaning keep them well till we die], and make
our retaliation to be upon those that have transgressed upon us, and cause us victory over those that have made us their enemies,
and do not let our calamity be in our faith, and do not make the world the biggest of our concerns, nor the limit of our knowledge,
and do not empower over us who will not have mercy upon us.
At-Tirmithi said it was comely, and Al-Albăni agreed. Al-Albani said that it was also reported by Ibn As-Sunni (#440),
Al-Hăkim (528/1) who said it was sound according to the conditions of Al-Bukhări, and that Al-Hăkim agreed with him. Al-Albăni
included this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #180.
