:bismillah:

 

:assalam:

 

"Du'aa (supplication) is the essence of worship. It is the weapon of the believer. With it we can never fail; without it we can never succeed. It is a whispering conversation with Allah Ta'aala, the most up-lifting, liberating, empowering, and transforming conversation one can ever have."

 

Compiled by Mawlana Ashraf 'Ali Thanawi and translated (with commentary) by Khalid Baig, the Accepted Whispers: Munajat-e-Maqbul includes over 200 du'aas from the Qur'an and Hadith for daily reading. 

 

In his introduction, Khalid Baig reminds us and makes du'aa that:

 

We need du'aas in all circumstances and all times. But in the dark ages that we are living in today, we need them even more. Every day brings fresh news about atrocities committed against our brothers and sisters around the world. What can we do? We can continue to just feel frustrated and depressed. We can just forget all this and move on to some other subject. Or we can stand up before Allah Ta'aala and pray for His help, Who alone can help.

 

The du'aa can shange our life, our outlook, and our fate. It is the most potent weapon of a believer. May Allah Ta'aala make this book an instrument of delivering that power to us.

 

Ameen.

 

Du'aas from this book to flow under this thread insha'Allah.

 

Wa'assalaam

DU’AA (PRAYER): THE MOST POTENT WEAPON OF A BELIEVER

 

رَبَّنَا أَفْرِغْ عَلَيْنَا صَبْرًا وَثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَنَا وَانصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ

Rabbanaa afrigh ‘alaynaa sabran wa thabbit aqdaamanaa wan-surnaa ‘alal-qawmil-kaafiriin. (2:250)

Our Lord, pour out patience on us, plant firmly our feet, and give us victory over the disbelieving people.

 

~~~Ameen~~~

 

duaa-old-hands.jpg

 

This was the du’aa of the Children of Israel fighting under the leadership of King Talut (Saul) against the Philistines who were fighting under Jalut (Goliath). The Children of Israel were the Muslims of the time. Allah Ta’aala accepted this du’aa and gave them victory over Goliath as Prophet Dawud (David) (as) slew him.

 

The trials and tribulations of this life constantly require sabr, which implies more than just patience. It implies patience in the face of hardships, steadfastness to refrain from evil in the face of temptations, and determination in overcoming obstacles to doing good. Thus overcoming laziness in offering daily salaats is part of sabr, as is remaining firm in the face of peer pressure. Of course perseverance in the face of oppression is a big part of it.

 

This d’aa reminds us that sabr is the key to victory. Sabr that emanates from a strong heart and trust in Allah Ta’aala leads to firmness of the feet which in turn leads to victory. But for each step on this path to victory, we need Allah’s help. Hence the du’aa.

 

(Source: Khalid Baig’s commentary to du’aa #2 in the Accepted Whispers: Munajat-e-Maqbul)

 

May Allah Ta’aala accept this du’aa from the Ummah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem) too. Ameen.

Du'aa At The Time of Great Difficulties

 

رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

 

Rabbanaa aatinaa fid-dunyaa hasanatan wa fil-aakhirati hasanatan wa qinaa 'adhaaban-naar (2:201)

 

Our Lord, give unto us in this world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good, and protect us from the punishment of the Fire.

 

~~~Ameen~~~

 

This is a very well-known du'aa. If a Muslim knows any du'aas in Arabic, it is very probable that this is one of them. However, its message and significance escape many.

 

It is a unique feature of Islam that it strikes a perfect balance everywhere, including between this world and the Hereafter. This world is important as is the Hereafter; we will reap there what we sow here. We pray for both, and mention them in their natural chronological order. But what we are seeking - and here is the crucial difference - are not the goods of this world, but the good. Here and in the Hereafter. Hasanah denotes every conceivable form of good health, livelihood, fulfillment of genuine needs (not wants), and morals, virtuous deeds, beneficial knowledge, honour and prestige, strength of faith, and sincerity in worship. Actually, everything in this world is good that will lead, directly or indirectly, to the good in the Hereafter. A Muslim informed by this du'aa will neither focus entirely on this world, seeking exclusively the comforts here, nor will he declare that he has nothing to do with it.

 

Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem) once visited a man who had been debilitated by sickness and asked him whether he had been making any supplication. He had. It was, "O Allah, whatever punishment you are going to give me in the Hereafter, give it to me here." Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem) asked him why he had not made this du'aa instead. He did and was cured.

 

The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem) used to make this du'aa very often (Sahih al-Bukhari). He used to recite this du'aa between the Rukn-e Yamani and the Black Stone while making tawaf (circumambulation of the Ka'bah) (Sunan Abi Dawud). Whenever he shook hands with a person he did not leave his hand without making this du'aa (Ibn as-Sunni). Imam Nawawi recommends this du'aa at the time of great difficulties or when facing major issues. It is also recommended after praying Salatu-ul-Hajah (a special salat at the time of need).

 

(Source: Khalid Baig’s commentary to du’aa #1 in the Accepted Whispers: Munajat-e-Maqbul)

 

May Allah Ta’aala accept this du’aa from the Ummah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem) too. Ameen.

Du'aa Expressing Deep Gratitude for our Ummah

 

رَبَّنَا لَا تُؤَاخِذْنَا إِن نَّسِينَا أَوْ أَخْطَأْنَا رَبَّنَا وَلَا تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْنَا إِصْرًا كَمَا حَمَلْتَهُ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِنَا رَبَّنَا وَلَا تُحَمِّلْنَا مَا لَا طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهِ وَاعْفُ عَنَّا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا وَارْحَمْنَا أَنتَ مَوْلَانَا فَانصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ

 

Rabbanaa laa tu'aakhidnaa in nasiinaa aw akhta'naa. Rabbanaa wa laa tahmil 'alaynaa isran kamaa hamaltahuu 'alal-ladhiina min qablinaa. Rabbanaa wa laa tuhammilnaa maa laa taaqata lanaa bihii, wa' fu 'annaa wagh-fir lanaa war-hamnaa. Anta Mawlaanaa fan-surnaa 'alal-qawmil-kaafiriin. (2:286)

 

Our Lord, do not take us to task if we forget or make a mistake, Our Lord, do not place such a burden on us as You had placed on those before us. Our Lord, burden us not with that which we have not the strength to bear. Pardon us, grant us forgiveness, and have mercy on us. You are our Protector so help us to victory over the disbelieving people.

 

~~~Ameen~~~

 

There are several ahadith in Musnad Ahmad, Sunan ad-Darimi, and Mustadrak Haim that inform us about the extraordinary importance of the last two verses of Surah Al-Baqarah, which contain this du'aa. They were given to Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem) out of His grace, during mi'raj (Ascension) out of the special treasure underneath the 'Arsh (Divine Throne) and they were not given to any previous Prophet.

 

We say this du'aa out of deep gratitude for this ummah was relieved of the stringent burdens placed on the Israelites, as is obvious to anyone who compares Islamic Shari'ah with Jewish Laws.

 

Sayyidnaa 'Umar (ra) and Sayyidna 'Ali (ra) said they thought that anybody who had any sense would never go to bed without having recited these verses.

 

(Source: Khalid Baig’s commentary to du’aa #3 in the Accepted Whispers: Munajat-e-Maqbul)

 

Ya Allah, accept this du'aa from the Ummah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem), ease our hardships and grant us victory over the oppressors and disbelieving people. Ameen.

Du'aa Of Those Firmly Grounded in Knowledge

 

رَبَّنَا لَا تُزِغْ قُلُوبَنَا بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَيْتَنَا وَهَبْ لَنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ رَحْمَةً إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْوَهَّابُ

 

Rabbanaa laa tuzigh quluubanaa ba'da idh hadaytanaa wa hab lanaa min ladunka rahma(tan). Innaka Antal-Wahhaab.(3:8)

 

Our Lord, do not let our hearts falter after You have guided us, and grant us mercy from Your presence. Surely You are the most generous Grantor.

 

~~~Ameen~~~

 

As the previous verse of this surah states, this is the du'aa of those who are firmly grounded in knowledge. They never become complacent with their iman (faith), being fully aware that one's iman is one's most precious treasure and needs to be carefully guarded. Further, we cannot guarantee its protection; we must turn to Allah to seek His help in doing so.

 

Needless to say, it is unimaginable that anyone consciously making this du'aa will knowingly engage in such enterprises as may pose danger to his iman.

 

(Source: Khalid Baig’s commentary to du’aa #4 in the Accepted Whispers: Munajat-e-Maqbul)

 

Oh Allah, grant us beneficial knowledge; ground us in Your knowledge, in Your love, and the love of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem) and his sunnahs; unify us in Your love and keep us unified in Your love; safeguard our imaan and grant us steadfastness; and accept our du'aas despite errors and deficiencies. Ameen.

Du'aa Invoking the Most Valuable Treasure of a Believer: Iman

 

رَبَّنَا إِنَّنَا آمَنَّا فَاغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

 

Rabbanaa innanaa aamannaa fagh-fir lanaa dhunuubanaa wa qinaa 'adhaaban-naar (3:16)

 

Our Lord, surely we have believed, so forgive us our sins and shield us from the punishment of the Fire.

 

Ameen

 

The verses before and after the one containing this du'aa characterize the people making this du'aa as the ones who fear Allah; are patient, truthful, devout, and charitable; and who seek forgiveness in the pre-dawn hours. Yet by invoking solely their iman here as the basis of forgiveness they affirm that this is the most valuable treasure of a believer.

 

(Source: Khalid Baig’s commentary to du’aa #5 in the Accepted Whispers: Munajat-e-Maqbul)

 

May Allah Ta'aala grant the members of the Ummah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem) such noble characteristics, accept our du'aas despite errors and deficiencies, and grant us forgiveness. Ameen.

Du'aas To Reflect On

 

 

رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَٰذَا بَاطِلًا سُبْحَانَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

 

رَبَّنَا إِنَّكَ مَن تُدْخِلِ النَّارَ فَقَدْ أَخْزَيْتَهُ وَمَا لِلظَّالِمِينَ مِنْ أَنصَارٍ

 

رَّبَّنَا إِنَّنَا سَمِعْنَا مُنَادِيًا يُنَادِي لِلْإِيمَانِ أَنْ آمِنُوا بِرَبِّكُمْ فَآمَنَّا رَبَّنَا فَاغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا وَكَفِّرْ عَنَّاسَيِّئَاتِنَا وَتَوَفَّنَا مَعَ الْأَبْرَارِ

 

رَبَّنَا وَآتِنَا مَا وَعَدتَّنَا عَلَىٰ رُسُلِكَ وَلَا تُخْزِنَا يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ إِنَّكَ لَا تُخْلِفُ الْمِيعَادَ

 

 

Allatheena yathkuroona Allaha qiyaman waquAAoodan waAAala junoobihim wayatafakkaroona fee khalqi alssamawati waal-ardi rabbana ma khalaqta hatha batilan subhanaka faqinaAAathaba alnnari

 

Rabbana innaka man tudkhili alnnara faqad akhzaytahu wama lilththalimeena min ansarin

 

Rabbana innana samiAAna munadiyan yunadee lil-eemani an aminoo birabbikum faamannarabbana faighfir lana thunoobana wakaffir AAanna sayyi-atina watawaffana maAAa al-abrari

 

Rabbana waatina ma waAAadtana AAala rusulika wala tukhzina yawma alqiyamati innaka latukhlifu almeeAAada

(duaas from 3:191-194)

 

 

(6) Our Lord, You have not created all this in vain! Glory be to You; sheild us then from the punishment of the Fire.

 

(7) Our Lord, surely whomesoever You sentence to the Fire, You have disgraced him indeed. And for wrongdoers there will be no supporters.

 

(8) Our Lord, surely we heard a caller calling to the faith, saying: believe in your Lord. And we believed. Our Lord, forgive us therefore our sins, and blot out from us our evil deeds, and in death join us with the righteous.

 

(9) Our Lord, grant us what You have promised to us through Your messengers, and do not disgrace us on the Day of Judgment; surely You never break Your promise.

 

~~~Ameen~~~

 

These beautiful du'aas are of the really wise persons, as described by the Qur'an. They are the ones who reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth and in the alternation of the day and night, and this reflection leads them to the belief in the Creator and a deep concern for their accountability before Him. The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem) said: "Ruined is the person who recited these verses but failed to reflect therein."

 

The reference to Allah Ta'aala never breaking His promise is not meant to reassure themselves of this fact. Rather it implies the plea that Allah Ta'aala enable them to become deserving of that promise.

 

(Source: Khalid Baig’s commentary to du’aas #6-9 in the Accepted Whispers: Munajat-e-Maqbul)

 

May Allah Ta’aala grant the members of the Ummah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem) understanding, the ability to reflect on His words, and may He enable us to become deserving of His promise. Ameen.

Du'aa taught to Adam (a.s.)

 

رَبَّنَا ظَلَمْنَا أَنفُسَنَا وَإِن لَّمْ تَغْفِرْ لَنَا وَتَرْحَمْنَا لَنَكُونَنَّ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ

 

Rabbanaa zalamnaa afusanaa wa in lam taghfir lanaa wa tarhamnaa lanakuunanna minal-khaasiriin. (7:23)

 

Our Lord, we have wronged our souls. And if You do not forgive us and grant us mercy, we shall certainly be among the losers.

 

~~~Ameen~~~

 

This du'aa was taught by Allah Ta'aala to Sayyidnaa Adam (a.s.). The Qur'aan says: "Then Adam learned certain words (of du'aa) from his Lord; so Allah accepted his repentance" (Al-Baqarah, 2:37).

 

(Source: Khalid Baig’s commentary to du’aa #10 in the Accepted Whispers: Munajat-e-Maqbul)

 

Ya Allah, accept this du’aa from the Ummah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem), ease our hardships and grant us victory over the oppressors and disbelieving people. Ameen.

Du'aa To Allah Ta'aala In Response To Worldly Powers Over Our Faith

 

رَبَّنَا أَفْرِغْ عَلَيْنَا صَبْرًا وَتَوَفَّنَا مُسْلِمِينَ

 

Rabbanaa afrigh 'alaynaa sabraan wa tawaffanaa Muslimiin. (7:126)

 

Our Lord, pour out patience over us and make us die as Muslims.

 

~~~Ameen~~~

 

This was the du'aa of the magicians of the court of the Pharaoh after they declared faith and were threatened by a furious Pharaoh with severe torture over this defiance. This is the response of the believers to the threats of dire consequences by worldly powers over their faith.

 

(Source: Khalid Baig’s commentary to du’aa #11 in the Accepted Whispers: Munajat-e-Maqbul)

 

Ya Allah, accept this du’aa from the Ummah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem), strengthen us, ease our hardships and grant us victory over the oppressors and disbelieving people. Ameen.

Du'aa Seeking Forgiveness

 

أَنتَ وَلِيُّنَا فَاغْفِرْ لَنَا وَارْحَمْنَا وَأَنتَ خَيْرُ الْغَافِرِينَ

 

Anta waliyyunaa fagh-fir lanaa war-hamnaa, wa anta Khayrul-ghaafiriin (7:155)

 

You are our Protector. So forgive us and show us mercy, for You are the best of those who forgive.

 

~~~Ameen~~~

 

This was the du'aa of Sayyidna Musa (Moses) (a.s.), when seventy Jewish leaders who accompanied him to Mount Sinai were punished because of their iniquity.

 

(Source: Khalid Baig’s commentary to du’aa #12 in the Accepted Whispers: Munajat-e-Maqbul)

 

Ya Allah, forgive the sins of the Ummah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem), grant that we are not of those who are iniquitous, and grant us protection from those who are iniquitous; strengthen us, ease our hardships and grant us victory over the oppressors and disbelieving people. Ameen.

Du'aa of the Israelites against persecution by the Pharaoh

 

رَبَّنَا لَا تَجْعَلْنَا فِتْنَةً لِّلْقَوْمِ الظَّالِمِينَ

 

وَنَجِّنَا بِرَحْمَتِكَ مِنَ الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ

 

Rabbanaa laa taj'alnaa fitnatan lil-qawmiz-zaalimiin(a). Wa najjinaa birahmatika minal-qawmil-kaafiriin. (10:85-86)

 

Our Lord, do not turn us into a victim of the unjust people and save us through Your mercy from the disbelieving people.

 

~~~Ameen~~~

 

 

This was the du'aa of the Israelites against persecution by the Pharaoh.

 

(Source: Khalid Baig’s commentary to du’aa #13 in the Accepted Whispers: Munajat-e-Maqbul)

 

Ya Allah, we seek your protection (especially for our Palestinian brothers and sisters) from persecution by the Israelis and disbelieving people. Ya Allah, safeguard us and do not let us become the oppressor after having tasted oppression, as others before us have done. Alhamdulillah for granting us understanding and an opportunity to seek Your help - You are our Protector.

 

Ya Allah, forgive the sins of the Ummah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem), and deliver us from the oppression of others and from the oppression we place on ourselves, and save us from becoming oppressors.

 

Ya Allah, accept our du'aas despite all errors and deficiencies. Ameen.

Du'aa For Death as a Muslim and Companionship of the Pious

 

فَاطِرَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ أَنتَ وَلِيِّي فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةِ تَوَفَّنِي مُسْلِمًا وَأَلْحِقْنِي بِالصَّالِحِينَ

 

Faatiras-samaawaati wal-'ardi anta Waliy-yii fid-dunyaa wal-aakhira(ti), tawaffanii musliman wa alhiqnii bis-saalihiin. (12:101)

 

O the Creator of the heavens and the earth, You are my Protector in this world and in the Hereafter. Make me die a Muslim and unite me with the righteous.

 

~~~Ameen~~~

 

This was the du'aa of Sayyidnaa Yusuf (Joseph) (a.s.) after he had been united with his parents and brothers. At the height of his worldly power his concern was still with dying as a Muslim and getting the company of the pious.

 

(Source: Khalid Baig’s commentary to du’aa #14 in the Accepted Whispers: Munajat-e-Maqbul)

 

Oh Allah, when we are at our lowest and when we are at our highest, protect us from loss of that which matters the most - Your pleasure and Your love. Ameen.

 

Oh the Most Merciful of those who show mercy, shower Your Mercy on us, forgive us, strengthen us, grant us iman, ihsan and ikhlas, a death on iman, and the companionship of the pious - both here and in the hereafter. Ameen.

DU’AA FOR OUR CHILDREN

 

رَبِّ اجْعَلْنِي مُقِيمَ الصَّلَاةِ وَمِن ذُرِّيَّتِي رَبَّنَا وَتَقَبَّلْ دُعَاءِ

 

Rabbij-‘alnii muqiimas-salaati wa min dhurriyyatii. Rabbanaa wa taqabbal du’aa’. (14:40)

 

My Lord, make me and my offspring establish salaat. Our Lord, accept my supplication.

 

~~~Ameen~~~

 

This was the du’aa of Sayyidna Ibrahim (Abraham) (a.s.). His concern for the salaat of his children should set an example for us. We should provide proper Islamic education and training to our children. At the same time we should be praying for their steadfastness in Islamic practices.

DU’AA FOR PARENTS: GUIDANCE AND/OR FORGIVENESS

 

رَبَّنَا اغْفِرْ لِي وَلِوَالِدَيَّ وَلِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ يَوْمَ يَقُومُ الْحِسَابُ

 

Rabbanagh-fir lii wa liwaalidayya wa lil-mu’miniina yawma yaquumul-hisaab. (14:41)

 

Our Lord, forgive me and my parents and all believers on the day when the Reckoning will be set up.

 

~~~Ameen~~~

 

Sayyidna Ibrahim (a.s.) initially made this du’aa for his father, but later stopped it. The Qur’an says: “And the du’aa of Ibrahim for the forgiveness of his father was but due to a promise he had made to him. Later when it became clear to him that he was an enemy of Allah, he withdrew himself from him” (At-Tawbah, 9:114).

 

A Muslim should pray for his non-Muslim parents in their life for their guidance. But it is not permissible to pray for he maghfirah (forgiveness) of anyone who dies in a state of unbelief.

 

(Source: Khalid Baig’s commentary to du’aa #16 in the Accepted Whispers: Munajat-e-Maqbul)

 

Ya Allah, forgive the sins of the Ummah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem), grant us compassion, mercy, kindness and humility, and increase us in beneficial knowledge and grant us understanding and the ability to do amal on the beneficial knowledge You bestow on us. Ameen.

DU'AA FOR OUR PARENTS

 

رَبِّ ارْحَمْهُمَا كَمَا رَبَّيَانِي صَغِيرًا

 

Rabbir-hamhumaa kamaa rabbayaanii saghiira. (17:24)

 

My Lord, show them (my parents) mercy just as they cared for me when I was a little child.

 

~~~Ameen~~~

 

This du'aa comes in the Qur'an immediately after the verse that tells us that deference to parents is the second most important obligation of a believer after the obligation to worship Allah Ta'aala alone. That placement in addition to the fact that Allah Ta'aala Himself is teaching us how to supplicate for our parents should tell us the value of this du'aa. That also raises our hopes regarding the acceptance of this du'aa when made sincerely.

 

Needless to say, it is an important parenting goal for Muslim parents to raise such children who will make this du'aa for them in their life and after their death.

DU’AA – BENEFICIAL FOR ALL OBJECTIVES AND PURPOSES

 

رَّبِّ أَدْخِلْنِي مُدْخَلَ صِدْقٍ وَأَخْرِجْنِي مُخْرَجَ صِدْقٍ وَاجْعَل لِّي مِن لَّدُنكَ سُلْطَانًا نَّصِيرًا

 

Rabbi adkhilnii mudkhala sidqin wa akhrijnii mukhraja sidqin waj-‘al lii min ladunka sultaanan nasiira. (17:80)

 

My Lord, make me enter through a rightful entrance and leave by a rightful exit and grant me supporting authority from Your presence.

 

~~~Ameen~~~

 

Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem) was taught this du’aa when he was commanded to migrate from Makkah to Madinah. He had been surrounded by the Makkan pagan leaders intent to kill him and he had no visible means of defense, yet Allah Ta’aala shielded him and provided for him a safe exit. Similarly, Madinah was a difficult city to live in because of its weather. Yet, Allah Ta’aala changed it into a very pleasant city, which it has been ever since. Some ‘ulama have stated that this du’aa is beneficial for all objectives and purposes.

Oh Allah, forgive the sins of the Ummah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem), grant us ease in our affairs, grant us understanding, grant us barakah in all that is good and pleasing to You (including: kindness, compassion, mercy, and humility), grant that our last deed be our best and grant us a death on imaan and a place in the highest Jannah. Ameen.

DU’AA FOR GUIDANCE AND MERCY

 

رَبَّنَا آتِنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ رَحْمَةً وَهَيِّئْ لَنَا مِنْ أَمْرِنَا رَشَدًا

 

Rabbanaa aatinaa min ladunka rahmatan wa hayyi’ lanaa min amrinaa rashada. (18:10)

 

Our Lord, grant us mercy from Your presence and provide us with guidance in our affair.

 

~~~Ameen~~~

 

When there seems to be no way out we turn to Allah Ta’aala for both mercy and guidance.

 

This du’aa was made by the young men who sought refuge from persecution in a cave. Their story is related in Surah Al-Kahf. Reports differ on whether these men were the followers of Sayyidnaa ‘Isa (Jesus) (a.s.) or another prophet. In either case, they refused to submit to a tyrant who was forcing paganism on his subjects. They left behind everything as they took refuge in a cave to safeguard their imaan. And in doing so, they set an example for the youth today to follow.

Oh Allah, forgive the sins of the Ummah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem), grant us guidance, understanding, and strength, and safeguard our imaan. Ameen.

 

Oh Allah, make it easy for the youth of the Ummah to be repelled by the fitnah and evil around them, make it easy for them to choose that which is most pleasing to You, and to keep their imaan safe by Your permission, mercy and guidance. Ameen.
