Du’aa for forgiveness, guidance, providence, and protection

اَللّٰهُمَّ اغْفِرْلِيْ،وَاهْدِنِيْ، وَارْزُقْنِيْ، وَعَافِنِيْ، وَاهْدِنِيْ لِمَاخْتُلِفَ فِيْهِ مِنَ الْحَقِّ بِأِذْنِكَ ـ

Allaahummagh-fir lii, wah-dinii, war-zuqnii, wa ‘aafinii, wah-dinii limakh-tulifa fiihi minal-haqqi bi-‘idhnik. (Composite: ‘A’ishah. Sunan an-Nasa’i #5440; Ibid. Sahih Muslim #1289)

O Allah, forgive me, guide me, provide for me, and give me protection. And guide me with Your Will to the right thing in whatever is controversial.

When faced with controversies and confusions, we seek Allah’s help to get a clear vision of the reality. A person earnestly resorting to this du’a is also protected from the ego trips which lead even the knowledgeable people astray in the heat of controversies.
