14 Aug

“Ramadhaan” comes from the root word “Ramidha” (رَمِضَ ) which literally means to be burning or scorching hot.

It has come down to –once again – the final 10 nights of the blessed month of Ramadhan. In this final lap its tribulations are great, our eyes are bloodshot from late nights and our knees are weary from either kneeling or shopping – whichever you prefer. But there is no time to judge for there is still much to do, and few opportunities left to chase

Below are some Ud’iah (sing. Du’a) you could add to your mix of night activities and spice up your witr. These are all commonly used and heard, and references are included where I am able to.

من حديث أبي سعيد الخدري -وهو بإسناد جيد- يقول: “إذا كنز الناس الذهب والفضة، فاكنزوا أنتم هذه الكلمات:

“اللّهُمًّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ الثَّبَاتَ عَلَى الْأَمْرِ، وَالعَزِيمَةَ عَلَى الرُّشْدِ، والغَنِيمَةَ مِن كُلِّ بِرٍّ، وَالسَّلَامَةَ مِن كُلِّ إِثْمٍ، اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ قَلْبًا سَلِيمًا ولِسَانًا صَادِقًا، اللّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ مِن خَيْرٍ مَا تَعْلَمُ وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِن شَرِّ مَا تَعْلَمُ، وَأَسْتَغْفِرُكَ لِمَا تَعْلَمُ إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ عَلَّامُ الْغُيُوبِ”

The Prophet (Pbuh) mentioned Hadith narrated by Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri, “if people treasure gold and silver, then treasure you these words:

‘O Allah, grant me firmness in conduct, and a resolution of consciousness, and to profit from every good action, and to be saved from every sin, O Allah grant me a sound heart and truthful tongue, O Allah grant me that which You know is good and protect me from that which You know is evil, and I seek forgiveness for (my errors) that which You know of, and You are the Knower of the Unseen’

اللَّهُمَّ اسْأَلُكَ نَعِيمًا لا يَنفَذْ واسْأَلُكَ قُرَّةَ عَيْنٍ لَا تَنقَطِعْ وَاَسْأَلُكَ الرِّضَى
بَعدَ القَضَاءِ واسأَلُكَ بَرْدَ الْعَيْشِ بَعْدَ الْمَوْتِ
اللَّهُمَّ اَسْأَلُكَ لَذَّةَ النَّظَرِ اِلَى وَجْهِكَ الْكَرِيمِ وَالشَّوقِ اِلَى لِقَائِكَ في غَيْرِ
ضَرَّاءً مُضِرَّةً وَلَا فِتْنَة مُضِلَّة اللَّهُمَّ زَيِّنَّا بِزِينَةِ الْاِيمَانِ
وَاجْعَلْنَا هُدَاةً مُهْتَدِينَ

O Allah grant me an inexhaustible comfort, and offspring that will never be cut off, and grant me Your pleasure and a soothing abode after death, and the delight of Your presence, and a longing for our Union, with no distress or harm, and no misleading charms, o Allah decorate us with the decoration of Faith, and make us amongst the guided.

اللَّهُمَّ اِنَّا نَسْأَلُكَ حُبَّكَ وَ حُبَّ مَن يُحِبُّكَ وَ حُبَّ عَمَلٍ يُقَرِّبُنَا إِلَى حُبِّكَ

O Allah we ask from you Your love, and the love of those who love You, and love for works that bring us closer to Your love.

اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّا نَعُوذُ بِكَ مِن عَمَلٍ يُخزِينَا وَ مِن صَاحِبٍ يُردِينَا

وَ مِن أَمَلٍ يُلْهِينَا وَ مِن فَقْرٍ يُنْسِينَا وَ مِن غِناً يُطْغِينَا

O Allah we seek refuge in you from works that disgrace us, and companions that destroy us, and ambitions that distract us, and poverty that makes us forget, and riches that make us transgress.

and Allah knows.
