Jibreel (AS) and Firaun

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful…

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

As-Salamu Alaykum!

I wanted to share hadith that has always been dear to me.

Ibn Abbas (radi Allahu anhu) narrated that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said:
“When Allah drowned Firaun, he said (while drowning), ‘I believe that there is no God but He in whom the Children of Israil believe.’ Jibreel said to me, ‘O Muhammad! If you could have seen me when I took the mud from the sea and shoved it into his mouth, fearing that the mercy of Allah might save him.’” [Tirmidhi]

This is one of my favorite hadith! Usually we view religious stories as somewhat “holy”… The beautiful thing about this hadith is that you can literally close your eyes and imagine the angel Jibeel (AS) doing this as Firaun is sinking.

Let’s repent to Allah for all of our sins and beg for His forgiveness before it is too late.

May Allah guide us and our loved ones to the straight path!
