Allaahumma ‘innee as’aluka fi’lal-khayraat wa tarkal-munkaraat

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.”“

Allaahumma ‘innee ‘a’oothu bika min jahdil-balaa

Allaahumma 'innee 'a'oothu bika min jahdil-balaa'i

اللهمَّ إنِّي أعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ جَهْدِ الْبَلَاءِ، وَدَرَكِ الشَّقَاءِ، وَسُوءِ الْقَضَاءِ، وَشَمَاتَةِ الْأَعْدَاءِ

Allaahumma ‘innee ‘a’oothu bika min jahdil-balaa’i, wa darakish-shaqaa’i,wa soo’il qadhaa’i, wa shamaatatil-‘a’ada.

“O Allaah, I seek refuge in You from the anguish of tribulation, the lowest depths of misery, the bad of what is decreed and the malice of enemies”

Listen and memorize the du’a:


O Allah, allocate to us the fear of You .. – Sahih At-Tirmidhi

Ibn ‘Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu alaihi wa Sallam) seldom left a gathering without supplicating in these terms:

Allaahum-maqsim lanaa min khashyatika

Allaahum-maqsim lanaa min khashyatika maa tahoolu bihi bainanaa wa baina ma’aaseek, wa min taa’atika maa tuballighunaa bihi jannatak, wa minal-yaqeeni ma tuhawwinu bihi ‘alainaa masaa-‘ibad-dunya.

Allaahumma matti’naa bi ‘asmaa’inaa, wa absaarinaa, wa quwwaatinaa maa ahyaytanaa, waj’alhul-waaritha minnaa, waj’al thaa’rana ‘ala man zalamanaa, wansurnaa ‘alaa man ‘aadaana, wa laa taj’al museebatanaa fee deeninaa, wa laa taj’alid-dunyaa akbara hamminaa, wa laa mablagha ‘ilminaa, wa laa tusallit ‘alainaa man-laa yarhamunaa 

اللَّهُمَّ اقْسِمْ لَنَا مِنْ خَشْيَتِكَ مَا تَحُولُ بِهِ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَ مَعَاصِيكَ، وَمِنْ طَاعَتِكَ مَا تُبَلِّغُنَا بِهِ جَنَّتَكَ، وَمِنَ الْيَقِينِ مَا تُهَوِّنُ بِهِ عَلَيْنَا مَصَائِبَ الدُّنْيَا، اللَّهُمَّ مَتِّعْنَا بِأَسْمَاعِنَا، وَأَبْصَارِنَا، وَقُوَّاتِنَا مَا أَحْيَيْتَنَا، وَاجْعَلْهُ الْوَارِثَ مِنَّا، وَاجْعَلْ ثَأْرَنَا عَلَى مَنْ ظَلَمَنَا، وَانْصُرْنَا عَلَى مَنْ عَادَانَا، وَلَا تَجْعَلْ مُصِيبَتَنَا فِي دِينِنَا، وَلَا تَجْعَلِ الدُّنْيَا أَكْبَرَ هَمِّنَا، وَلَا مَبْلَغَ عِلْمِنَا، وَلَا تُسَلِّطْ عَلَيْنَا مَنْ لَا يَرْحَمُنَا

O Allah, apportion to us such fear as should serve as a barrier between us and acts of disobedience; and such obedience as will take us to Your Jannah; and such as will make easy for us to bear in the calamities of this world.

O Allah! let us enjoy our hearing, our sight and our power as long as You keep us alive and make our heirs from our own offspring, and make our revenge restricted to those who oppress us, and support us against those who are hostile to us, Let no misfortune afflict our Deen; let not worldly affairs be our principal concern, or the ultimate limit of our knowledge, and let not those rule over us who do not show mercy to us

[At- Tirmidhi].

When to say: “The Decree of Allaah, He does whatever He wills”

Supplication when stricken with a mishap or overtaken by an affair

Supplication when stricken with a mishap or overtaken by an affair

Qadarullaahi wa maa shaa’a fa ‘ala
It is the Decree of Allaah and He does whatever He wills [1]

[1] The strong believer is better and more beloved to Allaah, than the weak believer and there is goodness in both. Strive for that which will benefit you, seek help from Allaah and do not despair. If a mishap should happen to befall you then do not say ‘ If only I had acted….such and such would have happened’. Rather say:     ‘Allaah has decreed and what He wills, He does’.    … for verify ‘If’ lets in the work of the devil.’ [Sahih Muslim 4/2052]

Seeking Refuge from Four Things Before the Dua’ in Tashahud

the-obligation-of-seeking-refuge-from-four-things-before-the-dua_-in-tashahud1

Allaahumma ‘innee a’oothu bika min ‘adhaabil-qabri, wa min ‘adhaabi Jahannama, wa min fitnatil-Mahyaa wal Mamaati, wa min sharri Fitnatil-Maseehid-Dajjal

O Allah, I take refuge in You from the punishment of the grave, from the torment of the Fire, from the trials and tribulations of life and death and from the evil affliction of Al-Maseeh Ad-Dajjal

The below was taken from Fatwas of Nur `Ala Al-Darb  alifta.net

The majority of scholars held the view that this Du`a’ (supplication) falls under the category of stressed Sunnah. It was been reported on the authority of Tawus, one of the great Tabi`un (Followers, the generation after the Companions of the Prophet) that this Du`a’ is obligatory. Tawus is also reported to have ordered his son to repeat his Salah when he knew that he did not recite this Du`a’. This indicates that such Du`a’ is a stressed Sunnah, which the Mu’min should not miss in obligatory or voluntary Salah.

People are subject to trials in their lives and after death. One may commit sins or Bid`ah (innovation in Islam), or be exposed to Kufr (disbelief) in Allah’s Religion. One might be tempted with wealth, lusts, sins, or evil company, and commit acts which displease Allah, whether it be Kufr, Bid`ah, or sins during their lives or at their death. We ask Allah to grant us protection from it. One may be tested with the trial of Al-Masih-ul-Dajjal if they live during the time when he appears. Al-Masih-ul-Dajjal will appear at the end of time, claiming to be a prophet and lord of all creation. Many people will follow him. We seek refuge with Allah from this. They will be doomed because of their following him. One should ask the Lord to protect them from these trials, because they do not know whether they will be saved or not. Therefore, one must ask Allah to protect them from the torment of Hellfire, the punishment of the grave, the trials of life and death and the trial of Al-Masih-ul-Dajjal. Everyone is in need of this Du`a’ so that they will not be tried in their life or upon dying; and so that they will not experience the trial of Al-Masih-ul-Dajjal if they happen to live at the time when he appears. We ask Allah to save us from this.
