اَ للّٰهُمَّ أِنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ عِيْشَةً نَّقِيَّةً، وَّمِيْتَةً سَوِيَّةً، وَّمَرَدًّاغَيْرَمَخْزِيٍّ وَّلَا فَاضِحٍ ـ
Allaahummaa innii as’aluka ‘ishatan naqiyya(tan), wa miitatan sawiyya(tan), wa maraddan ghayra makhziyyin wa laa faadih. (‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar. Mustadrak Hakim #186/1986)
O Allah, I ask You for a clean life, a graceful death, and a return (to You) which is neither humiliating nor disgracing.
A clean life is a life of purity and virtue. Such a person is happy and contented. He is pleased with Allah’s decrees and Allah is pleased with him.
(Source: Khalid Baig’s translation and commentary of du’aa #80 in the Accepted Whispers: Munajat-e-Maqbul)
May Allah Ta’aala grant us all the wisdom to honour believers during their lifetime and after their death and keep hidden their faults, sins, and humiliations; and may He grant that others honour the good in us and keep our faults, sins, and humiliations hidden from others. Ameen.
– اَلّٰهُمَّ أَ عِنَّا عَلٰ ذِكْرِكَ وَ شُكْرِكَ وَ حُسْنِ عِبَادَتِكَ
Allahumma a’innaa ‘alaa dhikrika wa shukrika wa husni ‘ibaadatik. [Abu Hurayrah. Kanz al-‘Ummal #3700; Mu’adh ibn Jabal. Sunan Abi Dawud #1301]
O Allah, help us in Your remembrance, in gratitude to You, and in reaching excellence in Your worship.
Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem) taught the singular version of this du’aa to Sayyidna Mu’adh ibn Jabal (ra) as a very special gift and advised him to say it after every salaat (Sunan Abi Dawud).

Allaahumma laa tada’ lanaa dhamban illaa ghafartah(uu), wa laa hamman illaa farrajtah(uu), wa laa daynan illaa qadaytah(uu), wa laa hajatam min hawaa’ijid-dunyaa wal-aakhiati illaa qadaythaaa yaa arhamar-raahimiin. [Anas ibn Malik. Majma’ az-Zawa’id #17266]
O Allah, do not leave any of our sins except that you forgive them, nor any of our worries except that you remove them, nor any of our debts except that you discharge them, nor any of our needs from this world and the Hereafter except that you satisfy them. O the Most Merciful of those who show mercy.
