Du’aa for a death on iman

اَللّٰهُمَّ لَقِّنِيْ حُجَّةَ ا لْأِيْمَانِ عِنْدَ الْمَمَاتِ ـ

Allaahumma laqqinii hujjatal-iimaani ‘indal-mamaat.

(Abu Hurayrah. Kanz al-‘Ummal #3286)

O Allah, instruct me in the evidence of faith at the time of death.

This is another important du’aa for breathing our last in a state of iman. It is the overriding concern of a believer that he or she should die in a state of iman, for otherwise a lifetime of good deeds may come to nothing. Therefore protecting our faith is a lifelong struggle. The hadith that teaches this du’aa sheds further light on the importance of this matter. “None of you should say, ‘O Allah, instruct me in my evidence at the time of death’, as the non-believer is also instructed in his evidence. Rather you should say, ‘O Allah! Instruct me in the evidence of faith at the time of death.'”
