Du’aa of the Morning & Evening
A reminder about an important daily supplication of the Prophet (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) narrated by Ibn Mas’ood and collected in Saheeh Muslim.
[مسلم 4/2088 ]
Asbahna wa-asbahal-mulku lillah walhamdu lillah la ilaha illal-lah, wahdahu la shareeka lah, lahul-mulku walahul-hamd, wahuwa ‘ala kulli shayin qadeer, rabbi as-aluka khayra ma fee hatha-alyawmi, wakhayra ma ba‘daho, wa-a‘oothu bika min sharri hatha-alyawmi, washarri ma ba‘daho, rabbi a‘oothu bika minal-kasal, wasoo-il kibar, rabbi a‘oothu bika min ‘athabin fin-nar, wa ‘athabin fil-qabr.
We have reached the morning and at this very time unto Allah belongs all sovereignty, and all praise is for Allah. None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone, without partner, to Him belongs all sovereignty and praise and He is over all things omnipotent. My Lord, I ask You for the good of this day and the good of what follows it and I take refuge in You from the evil of this day and the evil of what follows it. My Lord, I take refuge in You from laziness and senility. My Lord, I take refuge in You from torment in the Fire and punishment in the grave.
In the evening you say, amsayna wa amsal mulku lillah… and you replace ‘hatha-alyawmi’ with hathihil-layla.
[Saheeh Muslim 4/2088, Silsilah Ahadeeth as-Saheehah, no. 262, 1/525.]
