Question

Assalamualaikum,

Once Musa عليه السلام asked Allah عزّ و جل: Oh Allah! What do you do when you’re happy? Allah ta’ala said: when I am happy, I make it rain. Musa عليه السلام asked again: when you are much more happier then? Allah عزّ و جل said: I send guests. Musa عليه السلام then asked: “what do you do when you are the most happiest?” Allah عزّ و جل said: I create daughters.” 

I haven’t found any authentic source for this. Please shed some light.

JazakAllah

الجواب وباللہ التوفیق

We have not seen the Hadith mentioned in the question, however, there is a narration about first part of the question which is as under:

عن عمر بن الخطاب قال : حدثت أن موسى أو عيسى عليهما السلام قال : يا رب ما علامة رضاك عن خلقك ؟ فقال عز و جل :  أن أنزل عليهم الغيث إبان زرعهم و أحسبه إبان حصادهم و أجعل أمورهم إلى حلمائهم و فيهئهم في أيدي سمحائهم  قال : يا رب فما علامة السخط ؟  قال :  أن أنزل عليهم الغيث إبان حصادهم و أحبسه إبان زرعهم و أجعل أمورهم إلى سفائهم و فيئهم في أيدي بخلائهم(شعب الایمان :۷۳۹۲)

Translation: Hazrat U’mar R.A. says that I have been told that Moosa A.S. or Esa A.S. said, O’ my Rabb! What is the sign of your pleasure? Allaah T’aalaa said: (The sign of my pleasure is that) I send rain at the time of the growing of crops and I stop it at the time of its harvest, and I entrust their affairs (rule) to their wise ones and their wealth to the generous people. He A.S. then asked, O’ my Rabb! What is the sign of your displeasure? Allaah T’aalaa said, I send rain at the time of the cutting of crops and I stop it at the time of its growing, and I entrust their affairs (rule) to their stupid and less-competent ones and their wealth to the miser people.  

واللہ اعلم بالصواب
