Du’aa seeking forgiveness and inviting Allah Ta’aala’s Mercy

-اَللّٰهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِيْ وَارْ حَمْنِيْ وَ عَافِنِيْ وَارْزُقْنِيْ

Allaahummagh-fir lii war-hamnii wa ‘aafinii war-zuqnii. (Tariq al-Ashja’i. Sahih Muslim #4897)

O Allah, forgive my sins, have mercy on me, give me health and safety, and provide me with sustenance.

Ameen

This du’aa teaches us that seeking forgiveness for our sins invites Allah’s mercy, which in turn assures both protection and provisions. As other ahadith remind us, anyone looking for a way out of his or her difficulties should engage in istighfaar (seeking forgiveness from Allah) profusely.

Du’aa for Divine guidance

-اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ الْهُدٰى وَالتُّقٰى وَالْعَفَافَ وَالْغِنٰى

Allaahumma innii as’alukal-hudaa wat-tuqaa wal-‘afaafa wal-ghinaa. (‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud. Sahih Muslim #4898)

O Allah, I beg You for guidance, piety, chastity, and contentment.

Ameen

Making this du’aa often, with full understanding, may also be a strong antidote to the hedonistic pop culture, which promotes exactly the opposite values.

This du’aa implies that piety and chastity are linked with contentment and that all three require Divine guidance.
