DU’AA FOR SUCCESS

اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ الْفَوْزَفِي الْقَضَاءِ، وَنُزُلَ الشُّهَدَاءِ، وَعَيْشَ السُّعَدَاءِ، وَمُرَافَقَةَ الْأَنْبِيَاءِ، وَالنَّصْرَ عَلَى الْأَعْدَاءِ، إِنَّكَ سَمِيْعُ الدُّعَاءِ ـ

Allaahumma innii as’alukal-fawza fil-qadaa(i), wa nuzulash-shuhadaa(i), wa ‘ayshas-su’adaa(i), wa muraafaqatal-‘ambiyaa'(i), wan-nasra ‘alal-‘a ‘daa’ (i), innaka Samii’ud-du’aa.

[‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas. Sunan at-Tirmidhi #3341; Mu’jam al-Kabir (Tabarani) 10/284; Kanz al-‘Ummal #3608, 4988 – this du’aa is a part of one comprehensive du’aa that Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said at the end of his nightly Tahajjud salaat]

O Allah, I beg You for success in what is pre-determined, the hospitality reserved for Your martyrs, the life of the blissful, the company of prophets, and Your help against the enemies; verily You hear all du’aas.

Martyrs: The station of and the hospitality reserved for the Prophet ﷺ is higher than that of the martyrs. But it has been mentioned here to show that it is proper for the ummah to make this du’aa.

Life of the blissful: i.e. in the Hereafter.

Your help: Allah’s help sometimes comes overtly. At other times it comes internally whereby His servants’ hearts are strengthened.

Enemies: i.e. of the religion (Fayd al-Qadiir).
