The Prophet's (s.a.w.) Advise on Tawaswswul When Lost
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Imam ath-Thabarani (r.a.) recorded, in al-Mu’jam al-Kabir, that ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (r.a.) narrated that the Prophet (s.a.w.) said, “When you lose your means of transport in a jungle, you should call, ‘O creatures of Allah! Help me, recover my transport! O creatures of Allah! Help me, recover my transport!’ There are many of Allah’s creatures on this earth. They will help you recover it.” This is also recorded by Imam Abu Ya’la (r.a.), in his Musnad; Imam ibn as-Sunni (r.a.), in ‘Amal al-Yawm wa al-Laylah; Imam al-Haytsami (r.a.), in Majma‘ az-Zawa’id; and Imam ibn Hajr al-‘Asqalani (r.a.), in al-Mathalib al-‘Aliyah.
