Du’ā seeking Allah’s Mercy and Forgiveness

 

1 – Allāhumma Taqabbal minna solātana tām-mah, waghfirlana zunubana ‘āmmah. Walatu‘az-zibna yaumalqiyamah, Innaka ‘ala kullisyaiñ qadir. (Our Lord!  Accept our solah as a perfect one and Forgive us our sins all and do not punish us in the Hereafter, Thou art powerful over everything.) Allāhumma ahyina bilīman, waamitnabilīman, wakhsyurna bilīman wadkhilnalJannata ma’il īman.  (O Lord! Bless us with imān and ends us in imān and gather us in imān and enter into heaven with imān) [Tirmidzi and Hakim]

 

1.1 – Allāhum-maj ‘alna yamawlana li ā ika zākirin, walina’māika shakirin, (O Allah! Make us the people who are always in remembrance of Thou, the people who knows gratitude for the grace Thou has gifted) Wa’ala qadhā-ika waqadrika wabalā-ika-minas-sābirin, (Those who are patient when facing the qada and qadar and a the calamity of Thou) Wa minal halāli marzuqin (The people who have been provided with the halal living that Thou blessed) Wa’an-ngairihima’ sū mina wa ‘anin-nirāni muba-‘adin (The people who are saved from any sin, people who are saved from the torment fire of hell) waila wajhika wawajhi nabiyyika nadzirina muta matti ‘īen. (And to Thee we face and also Thy prophet face and be Graced)

 

  1. Rabbanā dzalamnā anfusanā wain lam taghfir lanā lanaku nanna minal khāsirīn. (Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves. If You forgive us not, and bestow not upon us Your Mercy, we shall certainly be of the losers.) [Al-‘Araf, 7:23] Rabbanā innanā amanna faghfir lana zunūbana waqina ‘adzâbannār(Those who say, “Our Lord, indeed we have believed, so forgive us our sins and protect us from the punishment of the Fire,”) [Al-‘Imran 3: 16]

 

2.1- Allāhuma-inna-nas-aluka-salāmatan-fiddīn, Wa-‘āfiyatan-filjasad, Waziyādatan-fil-‘ilm, Wabarakatañ-firrizq, Wa-taw-batañ qab-lal-maūt, Warahmatan-‘indalmaūt, Wa-maghfiratan ba’dalmaūt. O Allāh, Our Lord, we implore Thou to bestow us security in the religion, good health, and the increase of knowledge, the blessing of sustenance, and repentance before death, and mercy at death, and forgiveness after death. Allāhumma-hawwin-‘alaina fīsakaratilmaūt, Wannaja-timi-nannār, Wal-af-wa-‘indalhisāb. Oh Allāh, burdens us not with the agony of sakaratulmaut, and frees us from the fire, and forgiveness when on the day reckoning. [Tirmidzi and Hakim]

 

2.2- Shaddad Ibn Aws (radiyallāhu’anhu) narrated from the Prophet (Sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam):  “The best of prayers for forgiveness is:  Allāhumma Anta Rabbi Lā ilāha illa Anta, Khalaqtani wa ana ‘abduka Waana ‘ala ‘ahdika Wa wa’dika mastata’tu. A ‘udzu bika miñ sharri ma sana’tu, Abu ‘ulaka bi Ni’matika ‘alayya Wa abu ‘ulaka bizanbi, Faghfirli fa innahu lā yaghfirudz-dzunuba illa Anta” (O Allāh, You are my Lord, there is no god but You. You have created me and I am Your slave and I am keeping my promise and covenant to You as much as I can. I seek refuge with You from the evil of what I do. I acknowledge Your blessing and I acknowledge my sin, so forgive me, for there is none who can forgive sin except You).” Rasūlullāh (Sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “Whoever says this during the day, believing in it firmly, and dies on that day before evening comes, he will be one of the people of Paradise, and whoever says it at night, believing firmly in it, and dies before morning comes, he will be one of the people of Paradise.”[This is recorded by al-Bukhari (6306) and Muslim (2702)]

 

3 – Allāhummaghfirlana zunubanā Wali wa lidaina, Warhamhum kama Rabbawna singhara, Wali Jami ‘il Mu’minina wal Mu’minat, Wal Muslimina wal Muslimat, Al-ahya iminhum wal amwāt. Birahmatika Ya arhamar rāhimīn. (Oh Allāh, Forgive us our sins, both of our parents, bless them as they protected us since childhood, same goes for all Mukminin, Mukminat, Muslimin, Muslimat, that are alive and died by your Grace, O Allāh, Lord the Most Merciful and Most Compassionate.) [Tirmidzi and Hakim]

 

4 – Rabbana āmanna faghfirlana warhamna wa anta khairur-rāhīmīn” (Our Lord! We believe, so Forgive us, and Have Mercy on us, for You are the Best of all who show mercy!) [Al-Mu’minun, 23:109]

 

4.1- Rabb ighfir li (lana) wa tubb ‘alayya (‘alayna) innaka Antat-Tawwābul-Ghafūrur-Rahīm (O Allāh! Forgive me and accept my repentance, For You are the Accepter of Repentance, The Oft-Forgiving, The Most Merciful).  [Abu Dawud (1516) and At-Tirmidzi (3434) and others: Sahih]

 

5 – Ibn Mas’ud (radiyallāhu’anhu) reported: One of the supplications of Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam) was: “Allāhumma-inni (a)-‘as-aluka-mujibati rahmatik, wa-‘azā-ima-maghfiratik, was-salāmata-min-kulli-ithmin, wal-ghanimata min kulli birrin, wal-fawza bil-jannati, wannajata minan-nār (O Allāh! I beg You for that which incites Your Mercy and the means of Your forgiveness, safety from every sin, the benefit from every good deed, success in attaining Jannah and deliverance from Fire)”  [Al-Hakim].

 

6 – Allāhumma-inni-as-alukal-Jannah Wa a-‘udzu-bika-minañ-nār. (O Allāh, I ask Thou for Paradise and seek refuge in Thou from the Fire) [Narrated by Abu Dawud, 792: sahih]; Allāhumma-innaka-‘afuw-wuñkarīm-tuhibbul-‘afwa fa’fu-‘añna, [Wa-‘an-walidina-wa-‘an-Jami’il-Muslimina-wal-muslimat Mu’minina-wal-mu’minât, Al-ahyâ-iminhum-wal-amwāt]. Birahmatika-Ya arhamar-Rāhimīn. Walhamdulilāhi-Rabbil-‘ālamīn. (O Allāh! Thou are forgiving, and Thou love forgiveness. So forgive us, and our parents, Muslim and Muslimat, [Mu’minin and Mu’minat, dead and alive with Thou mercy] Thou are most Gracious and the Merciful. All the praise is to Allāh, the Lord of the entire universe). [Recorded by Ahmad, Ibn Mājah, and At-Tirmidzi]

 

  1. – ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr (radiyallāhu‘anhu) narrated that Abu Bakar As-Siddiq (radiyallāhu‘anhu) reported: I requested the Messenger of Allāh (Sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam) to teach me a supplication which I could recite in my Solāt. Thereupon he said, “Recite: ‘Allāhumma inni(inna) zalamtu nafsi zulman kathira, Wa la yaghfirudz-dzunuba illa Anta, Faghfir li maghfiratan min ‘indika, warhamni(warhamna), Innaka Antal-Ghafūr-ur-Rahim (O Allāh! I have considerably wronged myself. There is none to forgive the sins but You. So grant me pardon and have mercy on me. You are the Most Forgiving, the Most Compassionate).” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

 

8 – Rabbanā-innna-samia’na-munadīyañ-yuna-dī-lil-imāna-in-āminu birabbikum-fa-āmannā (Our Lord! Verily, we have heard the call of one (Muhammad (Sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam) calling to Faith: ‘Believe in your Lord,’ and we have believed’.) Rabbana-Faghfirlana-zunubana-wakaffir-‘anna sayyiatina-watawaffana-ma-‘al-abrār. [Al-’Imran, 3:193] Our Lord! Forgive us our sins and remit from us our evil deeds, and make us die in the state of righteousness along with Al-Abrar (those who are obedient to Allāh and follow strictly His Orders) Rabbana ma-wa-atina-ma-wa-‘attana-‘ala-Rusulika-wala-tuhzina-yawmal-Qiyâmah, Innakalātuhlifulmî ‘ād (Our Lord! Grant us what Thou promised unto us through Your Messengers and disgrace us not on the Day of Resurrection, for Thou never break Promise.) [Al-’Imran, 3:194]

 

9 – Rabbana-lā-tuā-khizna-innasīna- awahtha’na; (Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred). Rabbana-wala-tahmil-‘alaina-israñkama-hamaltaltahu-‘alallazi- namiñ qablina; (Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden likes that which You laid upon those before us.) Rabbana-walatuhammilna-ma-latāqata-lanābih, Wa’-fu’annā-wagh-firlanā-warhamnā, Anta-mawlâna-fansurna-‘alal-qawmil-kâfirīn (Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear, And pardon us; and forgive us and have mercy upon us.  You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people.) [Al-Baqarah, 2:286].

 

10 – Rabbana ‘alayka tawakkalna wa-ilayka anabna wa-ilaykalmaseer (Our Lord, upon You we have relied, and to You we have returned, and to You is the destination). Rabbana la taj ‘alna fitnatan lillazī na kafarū waghfir lana Rabbana, Innaka antal ‘Azīzulhakīm (Our Lord, make us not [objects of] torment for the disbelievers and forgive us, our Lord. Indeed, it is You who is the Exalted in Might, the Wise).“[Mumtahana, 60:4-5]

 

11 – Shakal bin Humaid (radiyallāhu’anhu) reported: I asked: “O Messenger of Allah, teach me a prayer.” He (Sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam) said, “Say:Allahumma inni a ‘udzu bika min sharri sam ‘ie, wa min sharri basari, wa min sharri lisani, wa min sharri qalbi, wa min sharri maniyyi (O Allah! I seek refuge in You from the evils of my hearing, the evils of my seeing, the evils of my tongue; the evils of my heart and the evils of passions).”[Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidzi].

 

11.1 – ‘Ali bin Abi Talib (radiyallāhu’anhu) reported: A slave, who had made a contract with his master to pay for his freedom, came to me and said: “I am unable to fulfill my obligation, so help me.” He said to him: “Shall I not teach you a supplication which Rasūlullāh (Sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam) taught me? It will surely prove so effective that if you have a debt as large as a huge mountain, Allāh will surely pay it for you. Say: ‘Allāhumm-ak-fini bi halalika ‘an harāmika, Wa agh nini bifadlika ‘amman siwāk (O Allāh! Grant me enough of what You make lawful so that I may dispense with what You make unlawful, and enable me by Your Grace to dispense with all but You).”[At-Tirmidzi];

 

11.2 -Anas bin Mālik (radiyallāhu’anhu) reported: The Messenger of Allāh (Sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam) used to supplicate: Allāhumma inni a ‘udzu bika minal-hummi wal-Hazan, Wa a ‘uzubika minal ‘ajziwal-kasal, Wa a ‘uzbika minal-Jubni Wal-Harāmi, Wal-Bukhli, Wa a ‘udzu bika min ‘Adzâbil-qabri, Wa a ‘udzu bika min Fitnatil-Mahya Wal-Mamat, Wa a ‘uzubika min ghalaba tid-daini Waqah-rir-rijal” (O Allāh! I seek refuge in You from difficulties and sadness; I seek refuge in You from helplessness and indolence,; I seek Your Protection from and miserliness, cowardice, senility; I seek Your Protection against the torment of the grave ; I seek Your Protection against and the trials of life and death; And from the burden of indebtedness and the tyranny of men).” [This is recorded by Muslim]

 

12 – Allāhumma la tada’ lana zanban illa ngafar tah, (Oh Allāh,  do not leave upon us to any sins but Thou eradicate it) Wala hamman illa farraj tah, (And all difficulties but Thou removed it) Wala karban illa naffas tah, (And all the grief but Thou healed it,) Wala marīdhan illa la shafai tah, (And not any adversaries but Thou disappointed them)  Wala ‘aduwwan illa khazal tah,(And there would no du‘ā,  but Thou fulfilled them) Wala jāhilan illa ‘alam tah, (And no one ignorant but Thou educate them)  Wala hājatan illa qadhai tah. (And all the hope, but Thou meet them, Birahmatika Yāarhamar-Rāhimīn. (O Lord the Most Merciful and Most Compassionate.) [Tabarāni]

 

13 – Rabbana ātina mil ladunka rahmatañ wahaiyi’ Lana amrīna rasyada.(Our Lord! Bestow on us Mercy from Yourself, and Facilitate for us our affair in the Right Way!) [Al-Kahfi, 18:10]

 

14 – Rabbana hablana min azwajina wa zurriyyatina qurrata ‘āyunn, waja’ālna lilmuttaqī naimama (Our Lord, grant us from among our wives and offspring comfort to our eyes and make us an example for the righteous.) [Al-Furqān, 25:74]; The duā’ of Prophet Zechariah, (‘alaihissalam) when he called Allāh to bestow him the dzuriyat: “Rabbi la tazarnī fardan waanta khayrul-wârithīn (My Lord, do not leave me alone [with no heir], while you are the best of inheritors.) [Al-Anbiyā’, 21:89 ] Rabbij ‘alni muqimassalāti wamin zurriyati, Rabbana wataqabbal du‘ā’; Rabbanagh firli waliwallidaiya walilmu’mini nayau ma yaqu mulhisâb. (My Lord, make me an establisher of solāh, and from my descendants. Our Lord, and accept my supplication. Our Lord! Forgive me and my parents, and (all) the believers on the Day when the reckoning will be established.)“ [Ibrahim, 14:40-41]

 

15 – Rabbana la tuzia’qulubana ba’ daiz hadaitana wahab Lana min laduñ karahmah; Iñnaka an tal wahhāb. (Our Lord! Let not our hearts deviate (from the truth) after Thou have guided us, and grant us mercy from Thou. Truly, Thou are the Bestower.) [Al-’Imran, 3:8]

15.1- Or say the du’ā as ‘Abdullah bin Mas‘ud (radiyallāhu‘anhu) reported: The Prophet (Sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam) used to supplicate: “Allāhumma inni as ‘alukal-Huda, Wat-Tuqa, Wal-‘Afafa, Wal-Ghina (O Allāh! I beseech You for Guidance, Piety, Chastity and Contentment).” [Muslim]. This du’a contains four words, the meanings and implications of which constitute its essence. These words are guidance, piety (fear of Allah), chastity and sufficiency. Guidance here means guidance at every turn of life and steadfastness on the path of truth. Fear of Allah is the greatest means of piety and strongest defense against sins.Chastity is the state of being free from what is unlawful. Self-sufficiency is the antonym of poverty and here it means the self-contentment. What it implies is that one should not care for what people possess. In view of all these qualities, the prayer of the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) mentioned in this Hadith is very comprehensive and valuable.

 

15.2 – Or say the du’ā as ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr bin Al-‘As (radiyallāhu‘anhu) reported: The Messenger of Allāh (Sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam) supplicated:“Allāhumma musarrifal-qulubi, sarrif qulubana ‘ala ta’atika (O Allāh! Controller of the hearts directs our hearts to Your obedience).”[Muslim]. Or Say: “Ya Muqallibal-qulubi, thabbit qalbi ‘ala dīnik wa ‘ala Ta‘ātik ( O Controller of the hearts makes my heart steadfast in Your religion and to Your obedience).” [At-Tirmidzi, Muslim]. And add: “Wa anta waliy yee fee addunya wal-akhirati tawaffanee musliman wa alhiqnee bis-sāliheen (And You are my protector in this world and in the Hereafter. Cause me to die a Muslim and join me with the righteous).” [Suruh Yusuf, 12:101]

 

If distress or grief befalls any of you add:

 

15.3 – Prophet Ayyub (‘alayhissalam), after being afflicted with calamities, distress and severe skin disorder for years, called for Allāh’s Mercy:“[Allāhumma]…annī mas-sani-yāddurru wa anta-ar-hamur-rāhimīn. ([O Allah]…Indeed, adversity has touched me, and you are the Most Merciful of the merciful).” [Al-Anbiyā’, 21:83]. Prophet Ayyub’s condition was ultimately restored

 

15.4 – The Prophet (Sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam) said to his companions: “Shall I not tell you some words which, if distress or grief befalls any of you and he offers this supplication, it will bring him joy? It is the duā’ of Dzul-Nun (i.e. Yunus or Jonah):  “Lāilā hailla Anta Subhānaka inni Kuntu (inna kunna) Minadz dzālimin” (There is no god but You, Glory to You; verily I was one of the wrongdoers.)[Surah Anbiya, 21:87]” [Sahih al-Jāmi‘, no. 2605] ‘Lā-hawla-wa-lā quwwata-illa-billāh’ (There is no change of any condition nor power except by Allāh).” [This is recorded by Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

 

Recite the Du’ā of Hasanah

 

16 – Anas Ibn Mālik (radiyallāhu’anhu) who said: “The supplication most often recited by Rasūlullāh (Sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam): Rabbana-ātina-fid-dunya hasanah, Wa fil-ākhirati-hasanah, Wa-qina-‘ādzabānnār (O Lord! Bestow upon us in this world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good, and save us from the punishment of the Fire).’” (Al-Baqārah 2:201) [This is recorded by Al-Bukhāri, Muslim, and Tarmidzi]. Tarmidzi (rahimullāh) said: “Hasanah is very comprehensive and includes in all kinds of good and benefits of this world and of the Hereafter. Good health, wealth and satisfaction of the world and good status in Jannah, forgiveness from sins and Allāh’s bounties and favours in both worlds are included in this duā’” [ Jāmi’ At-Tarmidzi]

 

17 – Wasal lallāhu ‘ala Sayyidina Muhammadiñ wa ‘ala alihi wasahbihi ajmain. (And Allāh’s mercy be upon Sayyidina Muhammad, his family, and the entire companion.) Subhâna Rabbika Rabbil ‘izzati ‘amma Yasifūn. Wasalamun ‘alal mursalîn. Walhamdulilahi Rabbil ‘ālamīn. (The Blessed Lord, The Lord that has all the attributes of excellent. And Peace on all the apostles, all the praise is to Allāh, the Lord of the entire universe). [Al-Saffāt, 37:180-182]

 

18 – Recite Al-Fātihah

The Closing of the Du’ā.

 

19 – Rabbana Taqabbal minna Innaka an-tas-sami’ul ‘alim. (O our Lord, accept our du’a Thou the Hearer, the Knower) [Al-Baqarah, 2:127] Watub’alaina Ya mawlana innaka anta- tat-tawwabur-Rahīm. (And please accept our repentance, O Allāh! Indeed s the recipient of repentance and the Most Merciful) [Al-Baqarah, 2:128] Wala tua-khiz-na bil’adza imi waljara-imi Ya Karīm. (Finally, the call for members of paradise in the heaven, Glory to Thee, O Allāh our Lord) Da’wahum fiha Subhānakallāhumma watahiyatuhum fiha Salāmun(Lastly, O Allāh!  Who is free from imperfection and our salutation for them is Salām) Wa ahiruda’wa-hum-anil-hamdu-lila-hi Rabbil’alamīn. (And the closing words of our praise are that all praise is for Allāh, the Lord, the administrator of the Universe.) [Yunus, 10:10]

 

20 – Taqabbalallāhu minkum Minna waminkum Taqabbal Ya Karim (May Allāh accept your deeds, and also from all of us, O the Gracious lord.)

 

And Allāh Almighty Knows best.
