Du’aa: My Lord, help me and do not help my enemies against me…

Du'aa 55

Rabbi a’innii wa laa tu’in ‘alayy(a), wan-surnii wa laa tansur ‘alayy(a), wam-kur lii wa laa tamkur ‘alayy(a), wah-dinii wa yassir liyal-hudaa, wan-surnii ‘alaa mam baghaa ‘alayy(a). Rabbij-‘alnii laka shakkaara(n), laka dhakkaara(n), laka rahhaaba(n), laka mitwaa’a(n), laka mukhbita(n), ilayka awwaaham muniiba(n). Rabbi taqabbal tawbatii, wagh-sil hawbatii, wa ajib da’watii, wa thabbit hujjatii, wa saddid lisaanii, wah-di qalbii, was-lul sakhiimata sadrii. (‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas. Sunan at-Tirmidhi #3474)

My Lord, help me and do not help my enemies against me. Aid me to victory and do not aid my enemies against me. Use Your plan for me and do not use Your plan against me. Guide me and make it easy for me to follow the guidance. Aid me to victory against those who act wrongfully toward me. My Lord, make me one who is most grateful to You, who constantly remembers You, who is full of fear toward You, who is fully obedient to You, who is humble before You, who is earnest in supplication to You, and who always turns to You. My Lord, accept my repentance, wash away my sin, grant my supplication, establish my evidence, make my speech upright, guide my heart, and throw out malice from my bosom.

Ameen

do not use Your plan against me: This may happen with a person who is engaged in worship to Allah but his worship is rejected because of its lack of sincerity while he thinks it is accepted (Tuhfah al-Ahwadhi).

establish my evidence: against Your enemies in this world and the Hereafter and in front of the angles in the grave (Tuhfah al-Ahwadhi).
