Dua

Du’aa for a surprise blessing and protection from sudden misfortune

اَللّٰهُمَّ أِنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ فُجَاءَةِ الْخَيْرِ، وَأَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِنْ فُجَاءَةِ الشَّرِّ ـ

Allaahumma inii as’aluka min fujaa’atil-khayr(i), wa a’uudhu bika min fujaa’atish-sharr. [Anas ibn Malik. ‘Amal al-Yawm wal-Laylah (Ibn as-Sunni) #39]

O Allah, I beg you for a surprise blessing and seek Your protection from a sudden misfortune.

We do not know what a new day brings with it. So we should be making this du’aa every morning and evening, as was the practice of Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem). He said that anyone who makes this du’aa every morning and evening will be saved from sudden calamities during that day or night.

Du’aa for mercy

،اَللّٰهُمَّ فَارِجَ الْهَمِّ، كَاشِفَ الْغَمِّ، مُجِيْبَ دَعْوَةِ الْمُضْطَرِّيْنَ، رَحْمٰنَ الدُّنْيَا وَلْآخِرَةِ وَرَحِيْمَهُمَا، أَنْتَ تَرْحَمُنِيْ فَارْحَمْنِيْ بِرَحْمَةٍ تُغْنِيْنِيْ بِهَاعَنْ رَّحْمَةِمَنْ سِوَاكَ ـ

Allaahumma Faarijal-hamm(i), Kaashifal-ghamm(i), Mujiiba da’watil-mudtarriin(a), Rahmaanad-dunyaa wal-aakhirati wa rahiimahumaa, anta tarhamunii far-hamnii birahmetin tughniinii bihaa ‘an rahmati man siwaak. (‘A’ishah. Mustadrak Hakim #98/1898)

O Allah, the Soother of worry, the Remover of grief, the Grantor of the du’aa of the helpless, the Giver of mercy and compassion in the world and the Hereafter, You alone can have true mercy on me. So show such mercy to me that will totally free me from the need of others’ mercy.

Du’aa for a life of obedience

،اَللّٰهُمَّ عَافِنِيْ فِيْ قُدْرَتِكَ، وَأَدْخِلْنِيْ فِيْ رَحْمَتِكَ وَاقْضِ أَجَلِيْ فِيْ طَاعَتِكَ، وَاخْتِمْ لِيْ بِخَيْرِعَمَلِيْ، وَاجْعَلْ ثَوَابَهُ الْجَنَّةَـ

ِAllaahumma ‘aafinii fii qudratik(a), wa adkhilnii fii rahmatik(a), waq-di ajalii fii taa’atik(a), wakh-tim lii bikahyri ‘amalii, waj-‘al thawaabahul-Jannah. (‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar. Kanz al-‘Ummal #3662)

O Allah, grant me security with Your power, admit me to your mercy, let me spend my entire life in Your obedience, let my life end with my best deed, and make Paradise its reward.
