#1162: On The Authenticity Of The Hadith O Allah Benefit Me With That Which You Have Taught Me

“Assalāmu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullāh wa barakātu. I need help with the authenticity of this hadith because in one source I found it classified as sahīh. Another classified it as da’if.

Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said: “O Allah, benefit me with that which You have taught me, and teach me that which will benefit me, and increase me in knowledge. All praise is due to Allah in every condition, and I seek refuge in Allah from the condition of the people of the Fire.”


Wa Alaykum Salam Warahmatullah Wabarakaatuh.

It is imperative firstly to apologise to you for the long delay in responding to this question of yours, we ask Allah for Tawfiq and Sadaad, amin.

The Hadith to which you refer was recorded by Imam Abu Isa At-Tirmidhi and Imam Abu Abdillah Muhammad bn Yazid bn Maajah Al-Qazwini rahimahullah from Abu Hurayrah radiyallahu anhu that the Rasul salallahu alayhi wasallam used to say:

اللهم انفعني بما علمتني وعلمني ما ينفعني وزدني علما الحمد لله على كل حال ، وأعوذ بالله من حال أهل النار

The Hadith was recorded with similar wordings by Imaam An-Nasaa’i and Al-Haakim.

This Hadith is Sahih in accordance with a compilation of all its chains.

Shaykh Muhammad Nasiruddin Al-Albaani rahimahullah considered it Sahih in Sahih Ibn Maajah and Sahih At-Tirmidhi.

There is nothing therefore wrong with relying on it.

And Allah knows best.

Barakallahu fikum
Jazakumullahu Khayran.
