Whilst the Companions (رضي الله عنهم) were collecting the Quran from pieces of vellum, the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: “Glad tidings for Syria!” They asked: “Why is that, O Messenger of Allah?” He replied: “Because the Angels of the Most Merciful spread their wings over it.” (Tirmidhi)

The Prophet (ﺻﻠﻰ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ ﻋﻠﻴﻪ ﻭﺳﻠﻢ) said: “On the night of Isra,’ I saw a white pillar which appeared to be made of pearls being carried by the Angels. I asked them: ‘What are you carrying?’ They replied: “We are carrying the pillar of Islam, and we have been commanded to place it in Al-Shaam [Greater Syria inc Palestine].'” (Al-Targheeb wal-Tarheeb lil-Mundhiri)

The Prophet (ﺻﻠﻰ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ ﻋﻠﻴﻪ ﻭﺳﻠﻢ) said: “O Allah! Bless our Shaam (Greater Syria) and our Yemen.” People said, “Our Najd as well.” The Prophet again said, “O Allah! Bless our Shaam and Yemen.” They said again, “Our Najd as well.” On that the Prophet said, “There will appear earthquakes and afflictions, and from there will come out the side of the head of Satan.” (Bukhari)

The Prophet (ﺻﻠﻰ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ ﻋﻠﻴﻪ ﻭﺳﻠﻢ) said, “O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Shaam (Greater Syria)! O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Yemen.” The People said, “And also on our Najd.” He said, “O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Shaam! O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Yemen.” The people said, “O Messenger of Allah! And also on our Najd.” The third time the Prophet said, “There (in Najd) is the place of earthquakes and afflictions and from there comes out the side of the head of Satan.” (Bukhari)

The Prophet (ﺻﻠﻰ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ ﻋﻠﻴﻪ ﻭﺳﻠﻢ) said: “I saw (in a dream) a pillar of the book taken from underneath my pillow and a column of light extending towards Al-Shaam (Greater Syria). Verily, Eemaan (faith) at the time of turmoil is located in Al-Shaam.” (Abu Dawud)

May the faithful become triumphant in Syria, Aameen.
