Du‘aa for Protection of Imaan and for Divine Mercy


Last Updated on Wednesday, 08 June 2022 15:57

In the Quraan Majeed, Allah Ta‘ala mentions that the following du‘aa is among the du‘aas which are made by those who are firmly grounded in the knowledge of Deen: 

رَبَّنَا لَا تُزِغْ قُلُوبَنَا بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَيْتَنَا وَهَبْ لَنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ رَحْمَةً ۚ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْوَهَّابُ​

O our Rabb! Do not let our hearts deviate (from the straight path) after you have given us guidance, and bestow us with special mercy from Your side, indeed You alone are the One who bestows in abundance. (Surah Aal ‘Imraan v8)

In the first portion of this du‘aa, we are begging Allah Ta‘ala to grant us protection in the bounty of imaan.

Du‘aa when Leaving the Home


Last Updated on Tuesday, 22 March 2022 16:48

Sayyiduna Anas bin Maalik (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned, “When a man leaves his home and recites:

بِسْمِ اللهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللهِ لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِالله​

Transliteration: Bismillahi tawakkaltu ‘alallah, laa howla walaa quwwata illaa billah

Translation: (I leave) in the name of Allah. I place my reliance upon Allah. There is no ability (to refrain from sin) and no power (to carry out good deeds) except with (the help of) Allah,

then he is (addressed by an angel and) told, ‘You have been (Divinely) guided, you have been sufficed (from your Deeni and worldly needs and concerns), and you have been (Divinely) protected.’ Thereafter, the shaitaan (which intends to misguide him) moves away from him, and another shaitaan says (to the shaitaan that moved away), ‘How will you gain control over a man who has been (Divinely guided), sufficed and protected?’” (Sunan Abi Dawood #5095)

On one occasion, Sayyiduna Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), the special attendant of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), was asked, “Which du‘aa would Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) make the most?” Sayyiduna Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) replied, “The du‘aa which he would make the most was:

اَللّٰهُمَّ رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارْ​

O Allah, our Rabb! Bestow us with goodness in this world, and goodness in the Hereafter, and save us from the punishment of the fire (of Jahannam)!

In emulating this blessed sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), Sayyiduna Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) would also recite this du‘aa in abundance. It is thus reported that if he ever made just a single du‘aa, then it would be this du‘aa, and when he made a lengthy du‘aa, then he would ensure that he did not forget to include this du‘aa with the other du‘aas that he made. (Saheeh Bukhaari #6389 and Saheeh Muslim #6840)

Last Updated on Thursday, 11 November 2021 16:22

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin Ghannaam (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The one who recites the following du‘aa in the morning has expressed gratitude for that day, and the one who recites it in the evening has expressed gratitude for that night:

اَللّٰهُمَّ مَا أَصْبَحَ بـِيْ مِنْ نِعْمَةٍ أَوْ بِأَحَدٍ مِنْ خَلْقِكَ فَمِنْكَ وَحْدَكَ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَكَ ، فَلَكَ الْـحَمْدُ وَلَكَ الشُّكْرُ

Transliteration: Allaahumma ma asbaha bee min ni’matin ow bi ahadim min khalqika faminka wahdaka laa shareeka lak, falakal hamdu walakash shukr

Translation: O Allah! Whatever bounty I have been blessed with this morning and whatever anyone in Your entire creation has been blessed with, it is all from You alone. To You alone belongs all praise, and for You alone is all gratitude. (Sunan Abi Dawood #5073 & As-Sunanul Kubraa – Nasaai #9835)

On one occasion, the respected wife of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), Sayyidah Ummu Salamah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) said to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Will you not teach me a special du‘aa that I can make for myself?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) responded, “Certainly! Recite the following:

اَللّٰهُمَّ رَبَّ النَّبِيِّ مُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ، اِغْفِرْ لِيْ ذَنْبِيْ ، وَأَذْهِبْ غَيْظَ قَلْبِيْ ، وَأَجِرْنِيْ مِنْ مُضِلَّاتِ الْفِتَنِ مَا أَحْيَيْتَنَا

Transliteration: Allahumma Rabban Nabiyyi Muhammadin (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) ighfir lee zambee, wa az-hib ghaiza qalbee, wa ajirnee min mudhillaatil fitani ma ahyaytanaa.

Translation: O Allah! Rabb of Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Forgive my sins, remove anger from my heart, and so long as you allow me to live, save me from trials that cause a person to go astray.” (Musnad Ahmad #26576)
