Forbiddance of ascribing things to omens


اللَّهُمَّ لاَ طَيْرَ إِلاَّ طَيْرُكَ، وَلاَ خَيْرَ إِلاَّ خَيْرُكَ، وَلاَ إِلَهَ غَيْرُكَ

O Allah there is no portent other than Your portent, no goodness other than Your goodness, and none worthy of worship other than You.

Allaahumma laa tayra 'illaa tayruka, wa laa khayra 'illaa khayruka, wa laa 'ilaaha ghayruka.

Ahmad 2/220, Ibn As-Sunni (no. 292). See also Al-Albani, Silsilatul-'Ahadlth As-Sahihah 3/54, (no. 1065). As for bodings of good, these used to please the Prophet (SAW) and so when he heard good words from someone, he used to say: ''We have taken from you a good portent from your mouth,'' Abu Dawud, Ahmad. See also Al-Albani, Silsilatul-'Ahadith As-Sahihah 2/363, and it is with Abu Ash-Shaikh Al-Asfahani in 'Akhlaqun-Nabiyy, pg. 270.
