A DU’A FOR TODAY 1

 

 

الحمد لله رب العالمين وصلى الله وسلم على نبينا محمد وعلى آله وأصحابه ومن اهتدى بهديه إلى يوم الدين أما بعد
 السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

 

 

The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “Shan’t I guide you to a treasure among the treasures of Paradise?”, I said: Yes O’ Messenger of Allah. He said: “Say: 

 Lã hawla wa lã quwwata ‘illã bil-lãhi

“There is no might nor power except with Allaah”

[Sahih Al Bukhaaree & Sahih Muslim]

It is reported by way of ‘um ‘al-mu’mineen Juwayriyata, , that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم  left her place at an early time as he was about to pray the Subh Prayer. She was in her prayer area; he returned after he had entered upon the time of dhuhã, and she was sitting. He said “Are you still in that state I left you upon?” She said: Yes. The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم  said “After I left you, I repeated four phrases, three times. If these were balanced against what you have said since the beginning of this day they would weigh (or, as the Arabic allows, outweigh) them:

Subhãna ‘allãhi `adada khalqihi, subhãna ‘allãhi ridhã nafsihi,
 subhãna ‘allãhi zinata
`arshihi, subhãna ‘allãhi midãda kalimãtihi
 

 Glory be to Allah, the number of his creations, his self-contentment, the weight of his Throne, the ink of his words. Explanation: The one that says this is expressing a want to say: Subhãna ‘allãh (glory be to Allah) as many times as the creation of Allah is numerous, a number of times corresponding to his Self-Contentment, a number of times corresponding to the weight of Allah’s Throne, and as many times as it could be written with the ink necessary for writing the words of Allah [see Surat ‘Al-Kahf (#18) V.109]. Although one is not able to say Subhãna ‘allãh that many times, Allah rewards him as having done so due to his aspiration and desire of the same.[Sahih Al Bukhari]  He صلى الله عليه وسلم    said to an A’rabee  “Say: Lã ‘ilãha ‘illa ‘allãhu wahdahu lã shareeka lahu, ‘allãhu ‘akbaru kabeera, wal hamdu lil-lahi katheera, subhãna ‘allahi rabbil `ãlameena, lã hawla wa lã quwwata ‘illã bil-lãhil ‘azeezil-hakeemi
 There is no ‘ilah except Allah alone, no partner does He have, Allah is greater very great, all praise be to Allah plentifully, Glory be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, there is neither might nor strength except by Allah [the `azeez and hakeem].   He said: Those are for my Lord, so what is for me? He صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “Say:‘Allãhumma ‘ighfirlee, wa ‘irhamnee, wa ‘ihdinee, wa `ãfinee, wa ‘urzuqnee.”
 O’ my ‘ilãh forgive me, have mercy upon me, guide me, keep me safe [from afflictions], and provide for me.[Sahih Al Bukhari and Muslim]  

 
سبحانك اللهم و بحمدك، اشهد أن لا إله إلا أنت
استغفرك و أتوب إليك
و السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته
فِي أَمَانِ اللَّه
لبيبه صبري   
Fi Amanilah,
Labeebah Sabree
