Du’aa for a clean and graceful life, death and return

اَ للّٰهُمَّ أِنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ عِيْشَةً نَّقِيَّةً، وَّمِيْتَةً سَوِيَّةً، وَّمَرَدًّاغَيْرَمَخْزِيٍّ وَّلَا فَاضِحٍ ـ

Allaahummaa innii as’aluka ‘ishatan naqiyya(tan), wa miitatan sawiyya(tan), wa maraddan ghayra makhziyyin wa laa faadih. (‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar. Mustadrak Hakim #186/1986)

O Allah, I ask You for a clean life, a graceful death, and a return (to You) which is neither humiliating nor disgracing.

A clean life is a life of purity and virtue. Such a person is happy and contented. He is pleased with Allah’s decrees and Allah is pleased with him.

(Source: Khalid Baig’s translation and commentary of du’aa #80 in the Accepted Whispers: Munajat-e-Maqbul)


May Allah Ta’aala grant us all the wisdom to honour believers during their lifetime and after their death and keep hidden their faults, sins, and humiliations; and may He grant that others honour the good in us and keep our faults, sins, and humiliations hidden from others. Ameen.
