رَبِّ هَبْ لِي حُكْمًا وَأَلْحِقْنِي بِالصَّالِحِينَ. وَاجْعَلْ لِي لِسَانَ صِدْقٍ فِي الْآخِرِينَ. وَاجْعَلْنِي مِنْ وَرَثَةِ جَنَّةِ النَّعِيمِ.
My Lord, grant me authority and join me with the righteous. And grant me a reputation of honor among later generations. And place me among the inheritors of the Garden of Pleasure.
Rabbi hab li hukmawwa alhiqni biṣṣalihin. Wajalli lisana ṣidqin filakhirin. Wajalni miwwarathati JannatinNaim.
Wisdom is the result of a proper understanding of the knowledge that a Muslim acquires. In this context, wisdom and knowledge pertain to understanding what Allah has prohibited and made permissible, and other aspects of Allah’s bounds and commands. With this knowledge, a person can judge between others and become a means of serving justice and spreading fairness. Because a person is gathered on Judgment Day with those whom he loved in this life, Prophet Ibraheem asks Allah to join him with the righteous, just as he asks Allah to grant him an honorable reputation and rank among later generations. These are all honorable requests that only the honorable among Allah’s creation seek in this life. In the Hereafter, the ultimate reward is Paradise, and hence, Prophet Ibraheem asks Allah to be admitted into it along with its other righteous inheritors. -Kalemtayeb.com (collected tafseers).
