Dua

Du’aa for the end of all our affairs

اَللّٰهُمَّ أَحْسِنْ عَا قِبَتَنَا فِي الْأُمُوْرِ كُلِهَا، وَأَجِرْ نَا مِنْ خِزْيِ اللدُّ نْيَا وَ عَذَابِ الْاٰخِرَةِ ـ

Allaahumma ahsin ‘aaqibatanaa fil-‘umuuri kullihaa, wa ajirnaa min khizyid-dunyaa wa ‘adhaabil-aakhirah. [Busr ibn Artat al-Qurashi. Musnad Ahmad #16970]

O Allah, make the end of all our affairs the best and save us from disgrace in this world and punishment in the Hereafter.

Ameen

Du’aa for Every Good that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem) Asked for

اَللّٰهُمَّ أِنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ خَيْرِ مَا سَأَلَكَ عَبْدُكَ وَ نَبِيُّكَ. اَللّٰهُمَّ أِنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ الْجَنَّةَ وَ مَا قَرَّبَ أِلَيْهَامِنْ قَوْلٍ أَوْ عَمَلٍ، وَّ أَ سْأَلُكَ أَنْ تَجْعَلَ كُلَّ قَضَاءٍ قَضَيْتَهٗ لِيْ خَيْرًا، وَّأَسْأَلُكَ مَا قَضَيْتَ لِيْ مِنْ أَ مْرٍ أَنْ تَجْعَلَ عَا قِبَتَهٗ رُشْدًاـ

Allaahumma innii as’aluka min khayri maa sa’alaka ‘abduka wa nabiyyuk(a). Allaahumma innii as’alukal-Jannata wa maa qarraba ilayhaa min qawlin aw ‘amal(in), wa as’aluka an taj’ala kulla qadaa’in qadaytahuu lii khayra(n), wa as’aluka maa qadayta lii min amrin an taj’ala aqibatuhuu rushda. [‘A’ishah. Sunnan Ibn Majah #3836; Ibid. Mustadrak Hakim #114/1914]

O Allah, I beg You for every good that Your servant and Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem) asked You for. O Allah, I beg You for Paradise and all words or actions that may bring me closer to it. I beg You that You make every decree of fate good for me. And I beg You that whatever decisions You make for me, make their end good.

Ameen

A famous hadith says that everything that Allah Ta’aala brings about is good for the believer. If it is a blessing he is thankful for it and if it is a hardship he shows patience in facing it. In both cases the end result is good for him. Is there a contradiction between that hadith and this du’aa? Not at all. The hadith describes the attitude of a true believer. The du’aa here is that we develop that attitude and conviction that will help us in all the ups and downs of this life (Fayd al-Qadir).

Du’aa for good

-اَللّٰهُمَّ أِنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ مِنَ الْخَيْرِ كُلِّهٖ٬ عَاجِلِهٖ وَاٰجِلِهٖ٬ مَا عَلِمْتُ مِنْهُ وَ مَا لَمْ أَعْلَمْ

Allaahumma innii as’aluka minal-khayri kullih(ii), ‘aajilihii wa aajilih(i), maa ‘alimtu minhu wa maa lam a’lam. [‘Aishah. Sunan Ibn Majah #3836]

O Allah, I beg You for all the good, immediate and in the future; that of which I know and that of which I know not.

Ameen
