The Prophet صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم‎ said:

The best thing that I and the Prophets have said on the evening of ‘Arafah is :

لَا إِلهَ إِلاّ اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ، لَهُ المُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمدُ، وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيءٍ قَدِيرٌ

Laa ‘ilaaha ‘illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu wa Huwa ‘alaa kulli shay’in Qadeer.

None has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, Who has no partner. His is the dominion and His is the praise, and He is Able to do all things.

Tafsir Ibn Kathir – Surah Ibraheem 14:41

(Our Lord! Forgive me and my parents,) Ibrahim said this before he declared himself innocent from his father, after he became sure that he was an enemy of Allah,

(and the believers), all of them,

(on the Day when the reckoning will be established.) on the Day when You will reckon Your servants and recompense or reward them for their deeds – good for good and evil for evil.

My Lord! Forgive me, and my parents and all the believing men and women

My Lord! Forgive me, and my parentsRabbi ighfir lee waliwalidayya waliman dakhala baytiya muminan walilmumineena wa almuminaat

My Lord! Forgive me, and my parents, and him who enters my home as a believer, and all the believing men and women. (Surah Nooh 71:28)

Listen /Download Mp3:

Nuh (peace be upon him) said :
(My Lord! Forgive me, and my parents, and him who enters my home as a believer,) Ad-Dahhak said, “This means, my Masjid.” However, there is no harm in understanding the Ayah according to its apparent meaning, which would be that he (Nuh) supplicated for every person who entered his house who was a believer. Then he said,

(and all the believing men and women.) He supplicated for all of the believing men and women, and that includes those of them who were living and those of them who were dead. For this reason, it is recommended to supplicate like this, in following the example of Nuh, and that which has been reported in the narrations and well-known, legislated supplications.

Ubaadah ibn as-Saamit radiallaahu ’anhu related that the Prophet sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam said:

“Whosoever seeks forgiveness for the believing men and the believing women, Allaah will record for that person – equivalent to every believing man and believing woman – a good deed.”

Be more concerned that your actions are accepted than your concern of performing the action itself

The Salaf worked diligently in perfecting their actions and making them faultless, then after that, they showed great concern for acceptance of their actions. They did this because they feared that their actions would be rejected. They are those who gave what was incumbent upon them while their hearts were in a state of fear. It is reported that ‘Ali bin Abi Talib (radiallaahu ‘anhu) said:

Be more concerned that your actions are accepted than your concern of performing the action itself. Did you not hear the statement of Allaah:

Verily Allaah only accepts the actions of the Mutaqeen (pious).

Fudalah said: For me to know that Allaah has accepted from me an action the size of a mustard seed is more beloved to me than this world and everything within it. This is because of the statement of Allaah:

Verily Allaah only accepts the actions of the Mutaqeen (pious).

Malik bin Dinar said: Fear that an action is not accepted is more difficult than performing the action itself.

‘Ataa as Sulamee stated: The pious fear that their righteous actions were not done sincerely for Allaah.

‘Abdul ‘Azeez ibn Abee Ruwaad said: I have met people very diligent in performing actions, and upon completion of those actions they are faced with sadness in fear of the action being accepted or not.

The Salaf would supplicate 6 months to Allaah to allow them to reach the month of Ramadan, and then upon completion of the month, they would again supplicate 6 months (begging) for acceptance of their fast.

Some of the Salaf would display sadness on the day of ‘Eid. It was said to them: This is a day of happiness and joy! They would respond: You have spoken the truth, but I am a servant, my Lord has ordered me to perform an action but I am not sure if He will accept it from me or not.

Wahb noticed people laughing on the day of ‘Eid, upon seeing this he stated: If their fast was accepted, then know that this is not the action of those who are grateful, and if it was not accepted, then this is not the action of those who are afraid.

Hasan (al-Basree) stated: Indeed Allaah has made Ramadan a means of gain for His creation. (Within this month) they race to gain His pleasure through obedience to Him. Some individuals will gain (win), while others will remain back and lose. It is amazing to see a person playing and laughing on a day that the good doers will be rewarded, and the wrong doers will be defeated.

It is reported that Hasan al-Basree said:

The believer does the best deeds yet is most fearful [that his deeds will not be accepted]. If he were to spend a mountain of wealth [in charity], he would not feel sure [of the reward] until he sees it. The more righteous and pious he becomes, the more he fears.

But the hypocrite (munaafiq) says, ‘There are so many people, I will be forgiven, no problem.’ So he does wrong and evil deeds, yet holds foolish wishes about Allaah.

May Allaah have mercy on all our Salafee scholars, and preserve the Deen of those still living.

Supplication of Yousuf (Peace be upon him)

A Precious Gem: You are my Protector in this Life and in the Hereafter

Source: Al-Fawaaid – A COLLECTION OF WISE SAYINGS – Imam Ibn AI-Qayyim,
Rendered into English by: Bayan Translation Services

Allah says that Yusuf (Joseph, peace be upon him) said, which means,

“You are my Wali (Protector, Helper, Supporter, Guardian, etc.) in this world and in the Hereafter, cause me to die as a Muslim (the one submitting to Your Will), and join me with the righteous.” (Yusuf, 12: 101)

Supplication-of-Yusuf

Anta waliyyee fid-dunya wal-akhirati tawaffanee musliman wa alhiqnee bissaliheen (Yusuf, 12: 101)

Listen / Download this Du’a :

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) stated:

This supplication is gathered upon: affirmation of Tawheed, submission to The Lord (Allaah), declaration of (one’s) poverty in His (subhaanah) Presence and a declaration of (one’s) freedom from allegiance to other than Him (subhaanah).   The affair of dying as a Muslim is from the loftiest aims of the slave.  This is only in the hands of Allaah and not in the hands of the slave, and so are the knowledge of (one’s) destination and the seeking of happiness (in the Hereafter). (Al-Fawaa-id of Ibnul Qayyim. Page:276)

The below is take from Tafseer Ibn Kathir:

Yusuf begs Allah to die as A Muslim

This is the invocation of Yusuf, the truthful one, to his Lord the Exalted and Most Honored. He invoked Allah after His favor was complete on him by being reunited with his parents and brothers, after He had bestowed on him prophethood and kingship. He begged his Lord the Exalted and Ever High, that as He has perfected His bounty on him in this life, to continue it until the Hereafter. He begged Him that, when he dies, he dies as a Muslim, as Ad-Dahhak said, and to join him with the ranks of the righteous, with his brethren the Prophets and Messengers, may Allah’s peace and blessings be on them all. It is possible that Yusuf, peace be upon him, said this supplication while dying.

In the Two Sahihs it is recorded that `A’ishah, may Allah be pleased with her, said that while dying, the Messenger of Allah was raising his finger and said – thrice, ثَلَاثًا (O Allah to Ar-Rafiq Al-A`la ﴿the uppermost, highest company in heaven﴾.) It is also possible that long before he died, Yusuf begged Allah to die as a Muslim and be joined with the ranks of the righteous.
