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.
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. (12:101)
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.
