It is reported by way of ‘Anas that the Messenger of Allah visited a sick man who had become faint like a faint hearted man, so the Messenger of Allah said did you use to supplicate for something, or ask Him it? He said: Yes. I used to say O’ my ‘ilah whatever you were going to punish me with in the Hereafter, then hurry it for me in this worldly life, so the Messenger of Allah said: Subhana ‘allahi you cannot bear that, or you are not able of that. Would not you say: ‘Allahumma ‘atina fd-dunya hasanatan wa fil ‘akhirati hasanatan wa qina `athaban-nari (146).
(146) Our Lord! Bring us Good in this world, and Good in the Hereafter, and save us from the torment of the Fire!
‘AI-`Adawee said it was sound, and that it was reported by Muslim on page 13 of volume 17, and ‘At-Tirmithi, volume 9 page 460 of Tuhfah, who said it was a strange comely-sound hadeeth.
