Du’aa for forgiveness and heavy scales

اَللّٰهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِيْ ذَنْبِۢيْ، وَاخْسِئْ شَيْطَانِيْ، وَ فُكَّ رِهَانِيْ، وَثَقِّلْ مِيْزَانِيْ، وَاجْعَلْنِيْ فِي النَّدِيِّ الْأَعْلىٰ ـ

Allahummagh-fir lii dhambii, wakh-si’ shaytaanii, wa fukka rihaanii, wa thaqqil miizaanii, waj-‘alnii fin-nadiyyil-‘a’laa. (Abu al-Azhar al-Anmari. Sunan Abi Dawud #4395; Ibid. Mustadrak Hakim #182/1982)

O Allah, forgive my sins, expel my Shaytan, and redeem my pledge. Make my scales heavy and make me from among the highest class (in the Hereafter).

my Shaytan: any shaytan from the jinns or humans who targets the person making this du’aa.

redeem my pledge: This refers to the verse: “Every man is in pledge for his deeds” (At-Tur, 52:21). So the du’aa is that we discharge all our obligations toward Allah Ta’aala and His creations so our pledge is redeemed.

highest class: the group of the highest ranking angels in the court of Allah. The du’aa is for getting their company.
