“With Jibreel and Meekaa’eel and Israafeel …”

by The Albaani Blog


Aaishah, radiyallaahu anhaa said, “The Messenger of Allaah, sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam, fainted [during his final illness] while his head was in my lap, so I started to rub it and supplicate for him to be cured.  Then when he came round, he, sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam, said:

‘No.  Rather I ask Allaah for the Highest Company!  With Jibreel and Meekaa’eel and Israafeel!'”

Reported by Ibn Hibbaan in his Saheeh, no. 6557 and declared authentic by Shaikh Al-Albaanee, rahimahullaah.
