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.
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.
