September 6, 2010 1 comment


In these last few days and nights left in the month of Ramadhaan, I wanted to share a beautiful lecture given by Shaykh Saalim at-Taweel explaining the tremendous du’a below. This is one of the best lectures I have ever heard mashaAllah. It will surely increase not just your understanding of this du’a but also your emaan.

Most Superior way of asking for Forgiveness from Allah

The Messenger of Allaah may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him said :

Indeed the major supplication for forgiveness is to say

Allaahumma anta rabbee, la ilaha illa anta, Khalaqtanee, wa ana abduka,
wa ana ala ahdika wa wadika mastatatu, aouthu bika min sharri ma
sanatu, aboou laka binimatika alayya, wa aboou bitahmbee, faghfirlee
fainnahu la yaghfiru ath-thunooba illa anta
[ Sahih Bukhari Vol.8 Hadith no:318]

O Allaah You are my Lord, there is none worthy of worship in truth except You, You created me and
I am Your slave and I am abiding to Your covenant and promise as best as I can, I seek refuge in You
from the evil that I have committed, I profess to you my sins and I acknowledge Your favour upon me,
so forgive me verily no one forgives sins except you.

So if the worshipper says this when the morning arrives, truly believing init and he dies enters Paradise,
and if he says this when the evening arrives truly believing in it enters Paradise.

Why our supplication is not answered?

Ibraheem Ibn Adham was approached by a group of people. They asked him about the Saying of Allaah the Most High:
“Call upon your Lord and He will answer you.” [Ghaafir:60]

They said: “We supplicate to Allaah but He does not respond to (our invocations) .”[1]
Ibraheem Ibn Adham replied:

You know Allaah but yet you do not obey Him.

You recite the Quraan but you do not act upon it.
You know about the shaytaan (devil) but you agree with him.
You claim that you love the Messenger of Allaah but you abandon his sunnah.
You claim that you love (to enter) paradise but you do not act for it.
You claim that you fear the hell fire but you fail to abstain from disobedience.
You say that death is truly (approaching) but you do not prepare for it.
You are preoccupied with other people’s faults but you do not analyse your own.
You eat the sustenance that Allaah provides (you with) but you show no thanks.
You bury your dead but you do not contemplate over that.[2]
[1] Abu Huraira narrated that:
The Messenger of Allaah (may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The invocation of anyone of you is granted (by Allah) if he does not show impatience, saying, ‘I invoked Allah but my request has not been granted.’” Bukhari and Muslim.
[2] Al-Khushoo’ fee As-Salaat, with Commentary and checking by Shaykh ‘Ali Ibn Hasan,  by Al-Haafidh Ibn Rajab Al-Hanbali (d790) page 39. This narration has mysteriously been omitted from the English translation of this wonderful book.

Saying Ameen in the Qunoot

Saying Ameen in the Qunoot

Compiled & translated


Abbas Abu Yahya

In the Hadeeth from Ibn Abbas –RadhiAllaahu anhu- who said that the Messenger of AllaahsallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam made Qunoot for a month continuously in the Dhuhr, Asr, Maghrib, Isha and morning prayer and at the end of every prayer after he said ‘Sami Allaahu liman hamida’ in the last Rakat of that prayer, he would make Dua’ against the tribes of Bani Sulaym and those tribes of Dhakwaan and Usayatah who lived with Bani Sulaym, and those behind the Messenger would say Ameen.’

[Collected by Abu Daawood in his ‘Sunnan’ no. 1443 in ‘the chapter of al-Qunoot in the Prayer’ and Shaykh Albani declared the hadeeth to be Hasan and he brings a research for the hadeeth in ‘Irwaa al-Ghaleel’ (2/163)]

Additional evidence

Ibn al-Mundhir said in ‘al-Awsat’ (5/216) that Imam Malik used to say:

The Imam should make Qunoot from the middle of Ramadan and curse the Kuffar and those behind him should say Ameen.’

[‘al-Mudouwanah’ (1/103]

Imam Ahmad said:

‘The Imam makes Dua’ and those behind him say Ameen’

[‘Mas’ail Ahmad li Abee Daawood p.67, Ishaaq also said this, as was mentioned by al-Marwaazi in ‘Qayam al-Layl’ 303]

Shaykh Uthaymeen said:

‘If we say that there is a Qunoot in the five daily prayers, then if the Qunoot is in a prayer that is read aloud, in this case it is known that the Qunoot is read out aloud, and if it is in a silent prayer then it is still read out aloud, as is established in the Sunnah: namely that the Messenger sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam used to read the Qunoot and the people used to say Ameen behind him, and it would not have been possible to say Ameen except if he was reading it out aloud.

This establishes the fact that the Sunnah is to read the Qunoot aloud even if it is in the silent prayers.’

[‘Sharh al-Mumtaa’ (4/47)]

Supplication of the Fasting Person

As salamu alaykum,

Please read a brief discussion on a hadeeth

Welcoming the Noble Guest: Ramadhaan

The Ramadan: The Noble Guest is at Your Doorstep Waiting for You to Open the Door…
Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Islaam, since last week, we have been blessed by a noble guest, a guest of mercy and blessings. One full year has passed since his last visit. He was your guest for 30 days and again, he is at our doorstep waiting for you to open the door so he may fill your homes with blessings and favours of Allaah. He is yours, mine and all Muslims’ guest and we ask Allaah سبحانه و تعالى to enable us to behave well during his stay and to bless us to take advantage of his presence.

So do you know of any guest more important than this guest? Do you know of any guest coming with so much khayr (goodness) and blessings? Do you know of any guest staying with you for a month and not asking to spend anything for him rather giving you so abundantly. So let us reflect for some moments and prepare well and take good care of this guest. May Allaah سبحانه و تعالى make us among those who would have Ramadaan a hujjah (evidence) for them and not against them and may Allaah سبحانه و تعالى open all the doors of Jannah for us. May Allaah سبحانه و تعالى give us the tawfeeq to do the Siyaam and the Qiyaam ihtisaaban (seeking the reward).

Brothers and Sisters in Islaam, let us be more attentive to listen and benefit from the words of our highly regarded and noble scholar. Today, we have with us, Shaykh Abdullah bin Abdur-Rahmaan Al-Ghudyaan to give us some reminders about this blessed guest – about this month of Ramaadan. So let us listen attentively so that we may benefit from this and may this help us to take maximum advantage of this guest.

Supplication said upon seeing someone in trial or tribulation

On the authority of Abu Hurairah (radiallaahu ‘anhu), who said the Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “If any man sees someone who is put to trial and says: Al Hamdu Lillahil-ladhee ‘Afanee Mimmabtalaka Bihi Wa Fadalanee ‘Ala Katheerin Mimman Khalaqa Tafdeelan, he wil not be affected by that affliction, whatever it was.” [At-Tirmidhi]

Dua in Arabic

The definition of Al Hamdu Lillahil-ladhee ‘Afanee Mimmabtalaka Bihi Wa Fadalanee ‘Ala Katheerin Mimman Khalaqa Tafdeelan is: (All Praise and thanks be to Allaah, Who spared me from what he has afflicted you [with] and greatly preferred me to many of his creatures).
