O Allaah forgive whomsoever oppressed me

Reference: Ibn Battaal in his explanation of al-Bukhaaree, 6/575

al-Hasan al-Basree supplicated one night, saying:

Oh Allaah forgive whomsoever oppressed me.

…and he increased in [supplicating for] that.

So a man said to him:

Oh Abaa Sa’eed, indeed I heard you supplicating this night for the ones who oppressed you, until I wished to be amongst them. What led you to do this?

He said:

His – the Most High – saying:

{…but whoever forgives and makes reconciliation, his reward is due from Allaah.} [soorah ash-Shooraa, aayah 40]
Abu 'Abdullaah
