Asking for Paradise???


Dear Shaykh, Assalamu alaykum,

Recently Maulana Shaykh Hisham, May Allah be pleased with him, said that if we ask for Paradise then ‘balaa‘ can come upon us.

I am confused. I thought that asking for Paradise was a good thing to do and I have been doing this AND I admit that I have had a very difficult and violent series of trials, especially before becoming a mureed of MSN.

What shall I ask Allah SWT for? Reward in this life and the next, instead?

Thank you and I am sorry for my lack of manners.


`Alaykum as-Salam,

Read Surat al-`Ankabut 29:1-6 and Surat al-Mulk daily. Make du`a assiduously for both Paradise and for protection from any trial just as the Holy Prophet (upon him blessings and peace) and Awliya taught us.
