DU’AA FOR PEACE ON THE APPOINTED DAY AND PARADISE ON THE DAY OF ETERNITY

اَللّٰهُمَّ ذَا الْحَبْلِ الشَّدِيْدِ، وَالْأَمْرِ الرَّشِيْدِ، أَسْأَلُكَ الْأَمْنَ يَوْمَ الْوَعِيْدِ، وَالْجَنَّةَيَوْمَ الْخُلُوْدِ، مَعَ الْمُقَرَّبِيْنَ الشُّهُوْدِ، الرُّكَّعِ السُّجُوْدِ، الْمُوْفِيْنَ بِالْعُهُوْدِ، إِنَّكَ رَحِيْمٌ وَّدُوْدٌ، وَّ إِنَّكَ تَفْعَلُ مَاتُرِيْدُـ

Allaahumma Dhal-hablish-shadiid(i), wal-‘amrir-rashiid(i), as’alukal-‘amna yawmal-wa’iid(i), wal-Jannata yawmal-khuluud(i), ma-al-muqarrabiinash-shuhuud(i), ar-rukka’is-sujuud(i), al-muufiina bil-‘uhuud(i), innaka Rahiimun Waduud(un), wa innaka taf’alu maa turiid.

[‘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, O the Maker of strong covenants whose every command is right. I beseech You for peace on the Appointed Day and for Paradise on the Day of Eternity along with those who are close to You and will be watching you, are often busy in kneeling and prostrating before You, and who fulfill their covenants. Surely, You are the Merciful, the Most Loving and indeed, You do what You will.

Strong covenant: Literally, it means strong rope. It refers to the Qur’an or the din as the Qur’an says, “Hold fast to the rope of Allah” (Al-i- ‘Imran, 3:103)

Day of Eternity: Day of entering into the Eternal Garden or the Eternal Fire.
