Allaahumma 'innee as'aluka fi'lal-khayraat

اللَّهُمَّ إنِّي أَسألُكَ فِعْلَ الْخَيْرَاتِ، وَتَرْكَ الْمُنْكَرَاتِ، وَحُبَّ الْمَسَاكِينِ، وَأَنْ تَغْفِرَ لِي، وَتَرْحَمَنِي، وَإِذَا أَرَدْتَ فِتْنَةَ قَوْمٍ فَتَوَفَّنِي غَيْرَ مَفْتُونٍ، وَأَسْأَلُكَ حُبَّكَ، وَحُبَّ مَنْ يُحِبُّكَ، وَحُبَّ عَمَلٍ يُقَرِّبُنِي إِلَى حُبِّكَ

Allaahummainnee as’aluka fi’lal-khayraat wa tarkal-munkaraat wa hubbal-masaakeen wa an taghfara lee wa tarhamanee wa ithaa aradta fitnata qawmin fatawaffanee ghayra maftoon, wa as’aluka hubbaka wa hubba man yuhibbuka wa hubbaamalin yuqarribunee ilaa hubbik

O Allaah, I ask You to grant me the performance of good deeds, abandonment of bad ones, and love of the poor; and (I ask You) that You forgive me and have mercy upon me; and if You intend to try a people, cause me to die without being tested; and I ask You for Your love, and the love of those who love you, and the love of actions which draw me closer to Your love.

Ahmad 5/243, Al-Haakim 1/521 and At-Tirmidhi 5/369 (with similar wording); declared hasan by At-Tirmidhi who said, “I asked Muhammad bin Isma’il (Al-Bukhari) and he said, “This hadith is hasan sahih.” Additionally, at the end of the hadith, the Prophet  صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم said, “Verily it is true so learn it and teach it.”“

From Ibn Umar -RadhiAllaahu anhumma- who said:

‘We would count that the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- would say in one sitting one hundred times:

رَبِّ اغْفِرْ لِي وَتُبْ عَلَيَّ إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ التَّوَّابُ الرَّحِيمُ

‘O my Lord forgive me and accept my repentance indeed You are the One who forgives and most merciful.’

Rab-bigh-firlee wa tubb alayya Innaka anta at-Tawaabu ar-Raheem.

[Collected by Abu Dawood, Tirmidhi & authenticated by Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood 5/248]

وعن ابن عمر رضي الله عنهما قال : ( إِنْ كُنَّا لَنَعُدُّ لِرَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فِي الْمَجْلِسِ الْوَاحِدِ مِائَةَ مَرَّةٍ : رَبِّ اغْفِرْ لِي وَتُبْ عَلَيَّ إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ التَّوَّابُ الرَّحِيمُ )

The following is taken from Tafsir Ibn Kathir (dar-us-salam publications)

The Supplication of Al-Muttaqin

Allah describes the Muttaqin, His pious servants, whom He promised tremendous rewards,

(الَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَآ إِنَّنَآ ءَامَنَّا)

(Those who say: “Our Lord! We have indeed believed”) in You, Your Book and Your Messenger.

(فَاغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا)

(so forgive us our sins) because of our faith in You and in what You legislated for us. Therefore, forgive us our errors and shortcomings, with Your bounty and mercy,

(وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ)

(and save us from the punishment of the Fire.)

The time Sayyidah Aaishah laughed such that her head fell into the lap of the Prophet (peace be upon him)

February 1, 2012 Comments off

From Urwah that Aaishah said, “When I saw that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم was in a pleasant mood I said, ‘O Prophet of Allaah! Supplicate to Allaah for me.’

He said, ‘O Allaah! Forgive Aaishah her sins of the past and the future and [any sins] she has kept hidden and what she has made public.’

So Aaishah laughed until her head fell into the lap of the Prophet of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم due to her laughter.

So he said, ‘Does my supplication please you?’

So she replied, ‘And why shouldn’t your supplication please me?’

So he said, ‘By Allaah! It is my supplication [which I make] for my nation in every prayer.’”

[Muslim 1/534]

“O Allah, forgive me for those sins which have come to pass as well as those which shall come to pass, and those I have committed in secret as well as those I have made public, and where I have exceeded all bounds as well as those things about which You are more knowledgeable. You are Al-Muqaddim and Al-Mu-akhkhir. None has the right to be worshipped except You.”

Note : al-Muqaddim (The One Who brings forward) , al-Mu’akhkhir (The One Who puts back) are the two names of Allaah
