حَدَّثَنَا الْحُسَيْنُ بْنُ إِسْحَاقَ التُّسْتَرِيُّ، ثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى الصُّوفِيُّ، ثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنُ سَهْلٍ، حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ عِيسَى، عَنْ زَيْدِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ، عَنْ عُتْبَةَ بْنِ غَزْوَانَ، عَنْ نَبِيِّ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ “إِذَا أَضَلَّ أَحَدُكُمْ شَيْئًا أَوْ أَرَادَ أَحَدُكُمْ عَوْنًا وَهُوَ بِأَرْضٍ لَيْسَ بِهَا أَنِيسٌ، فَلْيَقُلْ يَا عِبَادَ اللهِ أَغِيثُونِي، يَا عِبَادَ اللهِ أَغِيثُونِي، فَإِنَّ لِلَّهِ عِبَادًا لَا نَرَاهُمْ.” وَقَدْ جُرِّبَ ذَلِكَ

‘Utbah B. Ghazwān narrated that the Prophet of Allah ﷺ said, “ If certainly one of you loses something, or one among you wants assist, and he is in a land wherein there may be none to befriend, then let him say, ‘O servants of Allah, help me; O servants of Allah, help me,’ for Allāh has servants that we do now not see.

Ṭabarānī (or another sub-narrator) introduced, ‘Experience has shown this to be real.[1]

The declare: This ḥadīth absolutely shows that it’s far permissible to cry out to Allāh’s servants for help in times of want, even though they may be not truely present. These servants must be His righteous servants as it’s far unbelievable that Allāh ask us to call out to the disbeliever or the transgressor. The words of Ṭabarānī display that the students of Ahlu’l-Sunnah would surely preparation this, certainly it’s far authentically associated that Imām Aḥmad and others enacted this, and they observed it to work for them. None of them ever regarded this as an act of shirk.

Before analysing this claim, allow us to acquire together other versions of this ḥadīth to better understand it.

حَدَّثَنَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ نَائِلَةَ الْأَصْبَهَانِيُّ، ثنا الْحَسَنُ بْنُ عُمَرَ بْنِ شَقِيقٍ، ثنا مَعْرُوفُ بْنُ حَسَّانَ السَّمَرْقَنْدِيُّ، عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ أَبِي عَرُوبَةَ، عَنْ قَتَادَةَ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ بُرَيْدَةَ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ مَسْعُودٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ “إِذَا انْفَلَتَتْ دَابَّةُ أَحَدِكُمْ بِأَرْضِ فَلَاةٍ فَلْيُنَادِ: يَا عِبَادَ اللهِ، احْبِسُوا عَلَيَّ، يَا عِبَادَ اللهِ احْبِسُوا عَلَيَّ؛ فَإِنَّ لِلَّهِ فِي الْأَرْضِ حَاضِرًا سَيَحْبِسُهُ عَلَيْكُمْ”

Ibn Masʿūd narrated that Allāh’s Messenger ﷺ said, “ If the mount of considered one of you bolts within the desolate tract, let him name out: ‘O servants of Allah, convey it lower back to me. O servants of Allāh, bring it returned to me,’ for Allāh has (servants) present at the floor who will convey it again to you.[2]

حَدَّثَنَا يَزِيدُ بْنُ هَارُونَ، قَالَ: أَخْبَرَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ إِسْحَاقَ، عَنْ أَبَانَ بْنِ صَالِحٍ: أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم، قَالَ: “إِذَا نَفَرَتْ دَابَّةُ أَحَدِكُمْ أَوْ بَعِيرُهُ بِفَلَاةٍ مِنَ الْأَرْضِ لَا يَرَى بِهَا أَحَدًا، فَلْيَقُلْ: أَعِينُونِي عِبَادَ اللَّهِ، فَإِنَّهُ سَيُعَانُ”

Abān b. Ṣāliḥ narrated that Allāh’s Messenger ﷺ stated, “ If your mount or camel bolts inside the wilderness, wherein none can be visible, he should say, ‘Servants of Allāh, help me,’ for he will be assisted.[3]

حَدَّثنا موسى بن إسحاق، قَال حَدَّثنا منجاب بن الحارث، قَال حَدَّثنا حَاتِمُ بْنُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَنْ أُسَامة بْنِ زَيْدٍ، عَن أَبَان بن صالح، عَن مجاهد عن ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ رَضِي اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيه وَسَلَّم قَال إِنَّ لِلَّهِ مَلائِكَةً فِي الأَرْضِ سِوَى الْحَفَظَةِ يَكْتُبُونَ مَا سَقَطَ مِنْ وَرَقِ الشَّجَرِ فَإِذَا أَصَابَ أَحَدَكُمْ عَرْجَةٌ بِأَرْضٍ فَلاةٍ فَلْيُنَادِ أَعِينُوا عِبَادَ اللَّهِ.

وَهَذَا الْكَلامُ لا نَعْلَمُهُ يُرْوَى عَن النَّبِيّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيه وَسَلَّم بِهَذَا اللَّفْظِ إلاَّ مِن هَذَا الْوَجْهِ بِهَذَا الإِسْنَادِ

Ibn ʿAbbās narrated that the Prophet ﷺ said, “ Allāh has angels on the planet besides the recording angels who write down how many leaves fall from the trees. If considered one of you iswith cramping ache within the leg at the same time as in the wilderness, allow him call out, ‘Help me, O servants of Allāh.’[four]

أَخْبَرَنَا أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الْحَافِظُ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو الْعَبَّاسِ هُوَ الْأَصَمُّ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْمَلِكِ بْنُ عَبْدِ الْحَمِيدِ، حَدَّثَنَا رَوْحٌ، حَدَّثَنَا أُسَامَةُ بْنُ زَيْدٍ، عَنْ أَبَانَ بْنِ صَالِحٍ، عَنْ مُجَاهِدٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ قَالَ “إِنَّ لِلَّهِ مَلَائِكَةً فِي الْأَرْضِ يَكْتُبُونَ مَا يَقَعُ فِي الْأَرْضِ مِنْ وَرَقِ الشَّجَرِ، فَإِنْ أَصَابَتْ أَحَدًا مِنْكُمْ عَرْجَةً أَوِ احْتَاجَ إِلَى عَوْنٍ بِفَلَاةٍ مِنَ الْأَرْضِ فَلْيَقُلْ: أَعِينُوا عِبَادَ اللَّهِ رَحِمَكُمُ اللَّهُ، فَإِنَّهُ يُعَانُ إِنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ.”

هَذَا مَوْقُوفٌ عَلَى ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، مُسْتَعْمَلٌ عِنْدَ الصَّالِحِينَ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْعِلْمِ لِوُجُودِ صِدْقِهِ عِنْدَهُمْ فِيمَا جَرَّبُوا وَبِاللَّهِ التَّوْفِيقُ

Ibn ʿAbbās said, 

“Allāh has angels on this planet who file each leaf that falls at the ground from a tree. So if one you iswith cramping ache inside the leg at the same time as in the wasteland, or wishes help in that barren region, permit him say, ‘Servants of Allāḥ! Help me, may additionally Allāh have mercy on you.’ He will then be helped if Allāh wills.”

Bayhaqī brought: These are the words of ibn ʿAbbās. The righteous human beings of understanding have enacted this considering the fact that their real experience testified to the fact of it. Tawfīq lies with Allāh.[5]

The wording of ibn Abī Shaybah has ibn ʿAbbās pronouncing, ‘Allāh has angels on the earth in addition to the recording angels who write down what number of leaves fall from the bushes. If one in every of you is stricken with cramping ache inside the leg whilst in the desolate tract, let him call out, ‘Help me, O servants of Allāh.’[6]
