Hadith on Miracles: Question the Prophet wished he had not asked

Ibn Abbas reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “I asked my Lord a question I wish I had not asked. I said: O Lord, there were messengers before me, among them those for whom you subordinated the wind and among them those who resurrected the dead. Allah said: Did I not find you as an orphan and give you refuge? Did I not find you lost and guided you? Have I not opened your heart and lifted your burdens? I said: Of course, O Lord.

عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ سَأَلْتُ رَبِّي مَسْأَلَةً وَدِدْتُ أَنِّي لَمْ أَسْأَلْهُ قُلْتُ يَا رَبُّ قَدْ كَانَتْ قَبْلِي رُسُلٌ مِنْهُمْ مَنْ سَخَّرْتَ لَهُ الرِّيَاحَ وَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ كَانَ يُحْيِي الْمَوْتَى قَالَ أَلَمْ أَجِدْكَ يَتِيمًا فَآوَيْتُكُ أَلَمْ أَجِدْكَ ضَالا فَهَدَيْتُكَ أَلَمْ أَشْرَحْ لَكَ صَدْرَكَ وَوَضَعْتُ عَنْكَ وِزْرَكَ قُلْتُ بَلَى يَا رَبُّ
