24 Tafseer Ibn Kathir

The Prayer of Ibrahim for Himself and for His Father

Allah tells about the prayer of Ibrahim;

رَبِّ هَبْ لِي حُكْمًا



My Lord! Bestow Hukm on me,

Here Ibrahim, upon him be peace, asks his Lord to give him Hukm.

Ibn Abbas said,

"This is knowledge."

وَأَلْحِقْنِي بِالصَّالِحِينَ



and join me with the righteous.

means, `make me one of the righteous in this world and the Hereafter.'

This is like the words the Prophet said three times when he was dying;

اللَّهُمَّ فِي الرَّفِيقِ الاَْعْلَى

O Allah, with the Exalted Companion (of Paradise).

وَاجْعَل لِّي لِسَانَ صِدْقٍ فِي الاْاخِرِينَ
