Allaahumma ‘innee ‘as’alukal-‘afwa wal’aafiyata fid-dunyaa wal’aakhira

Morning/evening remembrance:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ الْعَفْوَ وَالْعَافِيَةَ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةِ،

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ الْعَفْوَ وَالْعَافِيَةَ فِي دِينِي وَدُنْيَايَ وَأَهْلِي، وَمَالِي،

اللَّهُمَّ اسْتُرْ عَوْرَاتِي، وَآمِنْ رَوْعَاتِي

، اللَّهُمَّ احْفَظْنِي مِنْ بَيْنِ يَدَيَّ، وَمِنْ خَلْفِي، وَعَنْ يَمِينِي، وَعَنْ شِمَالِي، وَمِنْ فَوْقِي، وَأَعُوذُ بِعَظَمَتِكَ أَنْ أُغْتَالَ مِنْ تَحْتِي

Allaahumma ‘innee ‘as’alukal-‘afwa wal’aafiyata fid-dunyaa wal’aakhirati,

Allaahumma ‘innee ‘as’alukal-‘afwa wal’aafiyata fee deenee wa dunyaaya wa ‘ahlee, wa maalee,

Allaahum-mastur ‘awraatee, wa ‘aamin raw’aatee,

Allaahum-mahfadhnee min bayni yadayya, wa min khalfee, wa ‘an yameenee, wa ‘an shimaalee, wa min fawqee, wa ‘a’oothu bi’adhamatika ‘an ‘ughtaala min tahtee

O Allah, I seek Your forgiveness and Your protection in this world and the next.

O Allah, I seek Your forgiveness and Your protection in my religion, in my worldly affairs, in my family and in my wealth.

O Allah, conceal my secrets and preserve me from anguish.

O Allah, guard me from what is in front of me and behind me, from my left, and from my right, and from above me. I seek refuge in Your Greatness from being struck down from beneath me.

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.

أَصْـبَحْنا وَأَصْـبَحَ المُـلْكُ لله وَالحَمدُ لله ، لا إلهَ إلاّ اللّهُ وَحدَهُ لا شَريكَ لهُ، لهُ المُـلكُ ولهُ الحَمْـد، وهُوَ على كلّ شَيءٍ قدير ، رَبِّ أسْـأَلُـكَ خَـيرَ ما في هـذا اليوم وَخَـيرَ ما بَعْـدَه ، وَأَعـوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَـرِّ هـذا اليوم وَشَرِّ ما بَعْـدَه، رَبِّ أَعـوذُبِكَ مِنَ الْكَسَـلِ وَسـوءِ الْكِـبَر ، رَبِّ أَعـوذُبِكَ مِنْ عَـذابٍ في النّـارِ وَعَـذابٍ في القَـبْر 

[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.]

Scholarly comments on morning and evening (dhikr) timings

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

The author (may Allah have mercy on him) said: Chapter on dhikr in the morning and the evening.

What he meant by morning and evening was at the beginning of the day, and at the end of the day and the beginning of the night. The morning begins when dawn breaks and ends when the sun has risen at the forenoon. And the evening begins with ‘Asr prayer and ends with ‘Isha’ prayer or thereabouts.

 End quote from Sharh Riyadh as-Saaliheen

Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

Chapter on remembering Allah (dhikr) at the two ends of the day (as mentioned in Hud 11:114), which are the times between Fajr and sunrise, and between ‘Asr and Maghrib. Allah, may He be glorified and exalted) says:

“O you who believe! Remember Allah with much remembrance. And glorify His Praises morning and afternoon” [al-Ahzaab 33:41-42]. The “afternoon”: al-Jawhari said: This is the time after ‘Asr until Maghrib. And Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning): “and glorify the praises of your Lord in the ‘Ashiy (i.e. the time period after the midnoon till sunset) and in the Ibkaar (i.e. the time period from early morning or sunrise till before midnoon)” [Ghaafir 40:55].

The ibkaar is the beginning of the day and the ‘ashiy is the end of the day. And Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning): “and glorify the praises of your Lord before the rising of the sun, and before its setting” [Ta-Ha 20:130]. This interpretation is what is mentioned in the hadeeths about saying such and such in the morning and evening. What is meant is before the sun rises and before it sets. Therefore the time for these adhkaar is after Fajr and after ‘Asr.

“Sufficient for me is Allah there is nothing worthy of worship except for Him,
I place my trust in Him, He is the Lord of the mighty throne.” (Recited seven times)

And its bounty is from what was related by Ibn as-Sunee in ‘Amalul-Yawmi wal-Laylah (#71) from his (peace be upon him) statement said: “Whoever recites seven times every day upon entering the morning and upon entering the evening: “Sufficient for me is Allah there is nothing worthy of worship except for Him, I place my trust in Him, He is the Lord of the mighty throne”,

Allah will suffice him with all of his concerns from those affairs of the Dunyaa (the affairs of this life) and the Hereafter.

And it was authenticated by Shu’ayb and ‘AbdulQaadir al-Arnaaoot in Tahqeequ Za’adil-Ma’ad (2/342).

Seeking protection in the perfect words of Allah from every evil that He has created

Seek protection in the perfect words of AllahA‘oothu bi kalimaatil-laahit-taammaati min sharri maa khalaq.
“I seek protection in the perfect words of Allah from every evil that He has created.” (Recite three times)

Aboo Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrates from the Prophet :

“Whoever recites in the evening three times; I seek protection in the perfect words of Allah from every evil that He has created, then not so much as a stinger (humah) will harm him that evening.”

In Muslim there is a similar wording without mention of reciting the supplication thrice (#2709) and at-Tirmidhee (#3898), and al-‘Alaamah Ibn Baaz (may Allah have mercy upon him) mentioned it in Tuhfat-ul-Akhyaar, saying: “The noun al-Humah denotes an animal that possess a stinger filled with poison like a scorpion, snake or something similar“. And Suhayl bin Saalih who is one of the narrators of this narration said: “Our people had learned this supplication and we used to recite it every evening when a teenage girl was stung but suffered no pain or affliction (from the sting)”.

Reciting ten verses from Soorat-ul-Baqarah at Night – The shaytaan will not enter the house that evening until the morning

Soorat-ul-Baqarah-ayah-1-5

“Alif Laam Meem This is the Book that contains no doubt, guidance for those who fear Allah. Those who believe in the unseen, who establish the daily prayers and spend from what We have provided them with. Those who believe in what was revealed to you and what was revealed to those before you, and they are filled with conviction concerning the hereafter. They are upon guidance from their Lord, and they are the successful.” {Soorat-ul-Baqarah: 1-5}

Listen: (Ayah 1-5)

Listen: (Ayatul Kursee and Two Ayah after it – Ayah 255-257)

Footnotes:

Related by Imaam ad-Daarimee in his Sunan as #3382 and #3383 from ‘Abdullah bin Mas’ood-may Allah be pleased with him-and it has been ruled as being marfu’oo(#1) that he said: “Whoever recites ten verses from Soorat-ul-Baqarah at night time the shaytaan will not enter the house that evening until the morning, (also) the first four verses of Soorat-ul-Baqarah, Aayat-ul-Kursee and the two verses after it, in addition to the three last verses of Soorat-ul-Baqarah beginning with: {…To Allah belongs what is in the heavens…}

And in another narration: “…shaytaan or anything he dislikes will not come near him nor his family that day, and it is not recited over a mentally ill person except that he will recover from his illness.” At-Tabaraanee related it in his Kabeer as #8673, and al-Haythamee said in his Majma’ (#17014): “The men of this narration are the narrators of the Saheeh except that ash-Sha’bee did not hear directly from Ibn Mas’oud.”

(#1) T.N. Al-Khateeb (rahimahullah) said: “It is what has been narrated by a companion directly from the Messenger (may the peace & blessings of Allah be upon him)”. Al-Baa’eeth-ul-Hatheeth Page 54.
