– اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّا نَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ خَيْرِ مَا سَأَلَكَ مِنْهُ نَبِيُّكَ مُحَمَّدٌ صَلَّى ا للهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ سَلَّمَ
Allaahumma innaa nas’aluka min khayri maa sa’alaka minhu nabiyyuka Muhammadun sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. (Abu Umamah al-Bahili. Sunan at-Tirmidhi #3443)
O Allah, we ask You for every good that Your prophet Muhammad (sallAllahu alahyhi wa sallem) asked You for.
Sayyidna Abu Umamah (ra) says that he heard many du’aas from the Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wa sallem) but could not remember them. So he requested the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem) to teach him an all-inclusive, concise, and comprehensive du’aa. This beautiful du’aa was a response to that request.
We seek all the good that he sought. We seek protection against all the evil that he sought protection against. We want to lovingly follow each one of his footsteps, and we hope to find his company in the Hereafter.
