Imam ibn Abi ad-Dunya (r.a.) on Jesus' (a.s.) Submission to Divine Decree

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam ibn Abi ad-Dunya (r.a.) said, “Jesus, the son of Mary, was accustomed to say, ‘O my God, surely I have entered into the morning unable to neither forestall what I fear nor hasten what I hope for.  The whole affair is in another’s hand. I have arisen bound to my deeds.  There is no one poorer than me.  Do not Make me the cause of my enemies being cursed, nor Make me the reason any harm should come to a friend.  Do not Place tribulation in my spiritual path, nor Empower anyone over me who shows me no mercy.’”
