Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Narrated Humaid (Radi`Allahu anhu):
I heard Muawiya bin Abi Sufyan (Radi`Allahu anha)
delivering a sermon. He said,

"I heard the Prophet (Sall`Allahu alayhi wa sallam) saying,

"If Allah (Subhanuhu wa Ta`ala) wants
to do a favor to somebody,
He bestows on him, the gift of
understanding the Qur`an and Sunna.
I am but a distributor,
and Allah (Subhanuhu wa Ta`ala) is the Giver.
The state of this nation will remain good
till the Hour is established,
or till Allah (Subhanuhu wa Ta`ala)'s Order comes."

(Sahih Bukhari ~ Book #92, Hadith #415)
