Seeking Allah’s Protection

Assalaamu Alaikum

I really like the du’aa related in this hadith. I try to say it at the end of my prayers before tasleem (salutation of peace) upon the angels. Someone also told me once that it’s really good to make an additional du’aa for yourself after saying this one. May Allah Accept all of our prayers. Ameen.

According to the hadeeth of ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her), the wife of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to pray in his salaah (prayer), “Allaahumma inni a’oodhu bika min ‘adhaab il-qabr, wa a’oodhu bika min fitnat il-maseeh il-dajjaal, wa a’oodhu bika min fitnat il-mahyaa wa fitnat il-mamaat, Allaahumma ini a’oodhu bika min al-ma’tham wa’l-maghram (O Allaah, I seek refuge in You from the torment of the grave, I seek refuge in You from the tribulation of the Dajjaal, I seek refuge in You from the trials of life and death, O Allaah, I seek refuge in You from sin and loss).”

(Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 798; Muslim, 589) 

The relevant point in this hadeeth is that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to seek refuge with Allaah from the torment of the grave. This is one of the pieces of evidence that confirm the torment of the grave. No one disputed the torment of the grave apart from the Mu’tazilah and some other groups who are not worth paying attention to.

“Leadership” – A speech by Omar Blaik

Assalaamu Alaikum. I’m a part of a Muslim networking organization and we just celebrated our first anniversary dinner this past weekend. We had a great variety of speakers, all of whom made phenomenal speeches. There was one particular speaker, Mr. Omar Blaik, who was definitely favored by the audience. I have obtained a transcript of his speech and would like to share it. I have found it to be very thoughtful and inspiring.

Nice du’aas

Rabbanaa aatinaa fid-dunyaa hasana wa fil aakhirati hasana  wa qinaa adhaab an-naar

O Allah, our Lord and Sustainer, grant us good in this world and good in the Hereafter, and save us from the Fire of Jahannam.


Ya Rabbi ibneelee bayt aindak fil-jannah

My lord, build for me a home with you in Paradise


Ya Muqalib al quloobina, thabit qalbi aala al imaan

Oh Turner of the Hearts, Make my heart firm on this faith


Allahumma innaka afuwwun kareemun tuhib-bul af-wa fa-afo anni

O Allah, You are the One who grants pardon for sins, who loves forgiving… so forgive me.

The specific benefits of some Surah’s and Verses.

Part of the principals of Reliance on Allah (Tawakul Al-Allah) require us to make our best effort to achieve the objective for which we are relying on Allah (swt). Sometimes there is not much we can do but, the Prophet (saw) has told us some of the properties of some Surah’s and Verses. Thus part of doing our best may comprise the recitation of these Surahs and Verses. This information is obtained from the following book. I don’t have time to write it all our at once – so, if your interested i’ll keep updating this whenever i have time Insha’Allah.

Du’as for when your sick

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem.

I can’t believe how difficult it is to find a du’aa for a sick person to say. Everything I found had to do with visiting the ill or for someone else to say but there’s almost nothing about being sick yourself. Anyway, I found these hadeeths that I thought may be of interest to you insha’Allah 🙂 The second one has a du’aa in it… I think it’s okay for you to say it for yourself iA.

PS – Remember to make lots of du’aa..

Ten causes that result in Allah’s love for His slave and the slave’s love for his Lord – By Imam ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah

1. Reciting the Qur’aan while pondering over its meanings and what is meant by it. 2. Getting closer to Allah by performing voluntary deeds after completing obligatory deeds. This is as is stated in a Hadeeth Qudsi: “My slave continues getting closer to Me by performing voluntary deeds until I love him.” [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree] 3. Continual remembrance of Allah under all circumstances, with one’s tongue, heart and actions. The extent of one’s love of Allah is determined by this. 4. Giving precedence to what He loves over what you love when you are overtaken by your desires. 5. The heart being avid of Allah’s Names, and Attributes and the heart roaming in that garden of knowledge. 6. observing Allah’s kindness, goodness and bounties, both hidden and open. 7. And this is the most wonderful, the heart being soft, subdued and meek before Allah. 8. Being alone with Allah during the time when the Lord descends during the last portion of the night while reading His Book and ending that by asking for forgiveness and repenting. 9. Sitting with the beloved and sincere, benefiting from the most fruitful of their speech. And not to speak unless speaking is more beneficial and you know that it will improve your state and be beneficial to others. 10. Remaining away from every cause that comes between the heart and Allah. These ten causes take the lovers to the station of true love and bring them to their Beloved.
