(Our Lord!  we have indeed believed: forgive us, then, our sins, and save us from the agony of the Fire)
[surah Ali’ Imran; 3:16]

سُبْحَنَ رَبِّنَآ إنَّا كُنَّا ظَلِمِينَ

Subhāna Rabbina inna kunna dhalimeen

(Glory to our Lord!  Verily we have been doing wrong!)

(There is no God but You;   Glory be to You, Truly I have been one of the wrongdoers)
[Surah al-Anbiyah, 21: 87]

Sa’d ibn Waqas (radiAllahu anhu) reported that the Prophet (salAllahu allayhi wasalam) said, “The supplication made by the Companion of the Fish (Prophet Yunus (as)) in the belly of the fish was (the above). If any Muslim supplicates in these words, his supplication will be accepted/responded to.”
In another report we read, “I know words that will cause Allah to remove one’s distress. These are the words (of supplication) of my brother Yunus, peace be upon him”
[at-Tirmidhi; 3500, an-Nisa’i in `Amal al-yawmi wa al-layla; #656, al-Hakim 1:505 and 2:383. The latter declared it sound (sahih) and Dhahabi confirmed him]

Allahumma-ghfir li dhanbi kullahu, diqqahu wa jillahu, wa awwalahu wa akhirahu, wa ‘ala niyatahu wa sirrahu

(O Allah!  Forgive me all my sins, great and small, the first and the last, those that are apparent and those that are hidden)
[Muslim 1:350]

اللَّهُمَّ إنِّي أسْألُكَ يَا اللَّهُ بِأنَّكَ الْوَاحِدُّ الأحَدُ الصَّمَدُ الَّذِي لَمْيَلِدْ وَ لَمْ يُولَدْ وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ كُفُواً أحَدٌ،

أنْ تَغْفِرَ لِي ذُنُوبِي إنَّكَ أنْتَ الْغَفُورُ الَّرحِيمُ

Allahumma inni asaluka ya Allahu bi annakal Wahidul Ahadus-Samadul ladhi, lam ya-lid wa lam youlad, wa lam yakullahu kufuwan Ahad, an taghfirali dhunoobi innaka Antal Ghafūūrur Raheem

Subhanakal-Lahumma wa bihamdik, ash-hadu allaillaha illa ant, astaghfiruka wa’atoobu ilaiyk

(Glory be to You, O Allah, and all Praise, I testify that there is no deity but You, I seek Your Forgiveness and to You do I repent.)

Allahummaghfirli khatāyaya wa dhunubi kullaha

(O Allah!  Forgive all my sins and ommissions.)

رَبَّنَا لا تُؤَاخِذْنآ إِننَسِيَنآ أوْ أخْطَأْ نَا رَبَّنَا وَ لا تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْنَآ إصْرًا كَمَا حَمَلْتَه عَلَى اْلَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِنَا

رَبَّنَا وَ لا تُحَمّلْنَا مَا لاطَاقَةَ لَنَابِهِ  وَاْعْفُعَنَّا وَ اْغْفِرْلَنَا وَاْرْحَمْنَآ أنتَ مُوْلَنَا فَاْنصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَفِرِينَ

Rabbana la tu’a-khidhna in-nasina aw akta’na, Rabbana wa la tahmil ‘alaiyna isran kama hamaltahu ‘alal-ladheena min qablina.  Rabbana wala tuham-milna mala taqata-lana beh.  Wa’fu-‘anna, waghfir-lana war hamna, Anta maulana fansurna ‘alal qawmil kaafireen

(Our Lord! Condemn us not if we forget or fall into error; our Lord!  Lay not on us a burden like that which Thou didst lay on those before us;  Our Lord! lay not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear.  Blot out our sins, and grant us forgiveness.  Have mercy on us, Thou art our Protector; Help us against those who stand against Faith)
[surah al-Baqarah; 2:286]

اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ رَبِّي لا إِلَهَ إِلا أَنْتَ خَلَقْتَنِي وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ وَأَنَا عَلَى عَهْدِكَ وَوَعْدِكَ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا صَنَعْتُ أَبُوءُ لَكَبِنِعْمَتِكَ عَلَيَّ وَأَبُوءُ لَكَ بِذَنْبِي فَاغْفِرْ لِي فَإِنَّهُ لا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلا أَنْتَ

Allahumma anta Rabbi la ilaha illa anta, Anta Khalaqtani wa ana abduka, wa ana ‘ala ahdika wa wa’dika mastata’tu, A’udhu bika min Sharri ma sana’tu, abu’u Laka bini’matika ‘alaiya, wa Abu Laka bidhanbi faghfirli innahu la yaghfiru adhdhunuba illa anta

(O Allah! You are my Lord! None has the right to be worshipped but You. You created me and I am Your slave, and I am faithful to my covenant and my promise as much as I can. I seek refuge with You from all the evil I have done. I acknowledge before You all the blessings You have bestowed upon me, and I confess to You all my sins. So I entreat You to forgive my sins, for nobody can forgive sins except You.)

Shaddad ibn Aws (radiAllahu anhu) relates that the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) said that he (Sayyid al-Istighfar) most superior way of asking for forgiveness from Allah is to say (the above du’a). That “If somebody recites it during the day with firm faith in it, and dies on the same day before the evening, he will be from the people of Paradise; and if somebody recites it at night with firm faith in it, and dies before the morning, he will be from the people of Paradise.”
[sahih al-Bukhari; 8,75,318, at-Tirmidhi; 3393, an-Nasa’i; 5522, Ahmad; 16662]

أسْتَغْفِرُ اللّهَ الْعَظِيمَ الَّذِي لا إلَهَ إلَّا هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ، غَفَّارُ الذُّنُّوبِ ذُو الْجَلاَلِ وَالإِكْرَامِ،

 وَ أتُوبُ إَيْهِ مِنْ جَمِيعِ الْمَعَاصِي وَالذُّنوبِ وَ الآثامِ، وَ مِنْ كُلِّ ذَنْبٍ أذْنَبْتُهُ عَمْدًا وَ خَطَأً،

 ظَاهِرًا وَبَاطِنًا، قَوْلًا وَفِعْلًا، فِى جَمِيع حَرَكَاتِي وَسَكَاتِي وَخَطَرَاتِيوأنْفَاسِي كُلِّهَا دَائِمًا أبَدًا سَرْمَدًا،

مِنَ الذَّنْبِ الَّذِي أعْلَمُ، وَ مِنَ الذَّنْبِ الَّذِي لا أعْلَمُ، عَدَدَ مَا أحَاطَ بِهِ الْعِلْمُ وَ أحْصَاهُ الْكِتَابُ

 وَخَطَّهُ الْقَلَمُ، وَ عَدَدَ مَا أوْ جَدَتْهُ الْقُدْرَةُ وَ خَصَّصَتْهُ الإرَادَةُ، وَمِدَادَ كَلِمَاتِ اللّهِ،

وَ كَمَا يَنْبَغِي لِجَلالِ وَجْهِ رَبِّنَا وَ جَمَالِهِ وَكَمَالِهِ، وَ كَمَا يُحِبُّ رَبِّنَا وَ يَرْضَى


 

اَللّهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ لِكُلِّ ذَنْبٍ لِّيْ وَأَسْأَلُكَ أَنْ تَغْفِرَ لِيْ مَا أَحْصَيْتَ عَلَيَّ مِنْ مَّظَالِمِ الْعِبَادِ قِبَلِيْ

 فَإِنَّ لِعِبَادِكَ عَلَيَّ حُقُوْقًاوَّمَظَالِمَ وأَنَا بِهَا مُرْتَهِنٌ اَللّهُمَّ وَإِنْ كَانَتْ كَثِيْرَةً فَإِنَّهَا فِيْ جَنْبِ عَفْوِكَ يَسِيْرَةٌ

اللّهُمَّ أَيُّمَا عَبْدٍ مِّنْ عِبَادِكَ أَوْ أَمَةٍ مِّنْ إِمَائِكَكَانَتْ لَهُ مَظْلِمَةٌ عِنْدِيْ قَدْ غَصَبْتُهُ عَلَيْهَا فِيْ أَرْضِها

 أَوْ مَالِها أَوْ عِرْضِها أَوْ بَدَنِها أَوْ غَابَ أَوْ حَضَرَ هُوَ أَوْ خَصْمُهُيُطَالِبُنِيْ بِهَا

وَلَمْ أَسْتَطِعْ أَنْ أَرُدَّهَا إِلَيْهِ وَلَمْ أَسْتَحْلِلْهَا مِنْهُ فَأَسْأَلُكَ بِكَرَمِكَ وَجُوْدِكَ وَسِعَةِ مَا عِنْدَكَ

 أَنْ تُرْضِيَهُمْ عَنِّيْ وَلاَتَجْعَلْ لَّهُمْ عَلَيَّ شَيْئًا مُّنَقِّصَةً مِّنْ حَسَنَاتِيْ فَإِنَّ عِنْدَكَ مَا يُرْضِيْهِمْ عَنِّيْ

وَلَيْسَ عِنْدِيْ مَا يُرْضِيْهِمْ وَلاَ تَجْعَلْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِلِسَيِّئَاتِهِمْ عَلىٰ حَسَنَاتِيْ سَبِيْلاً.

Allahumma inni astaghfiruka li kulli dhambin,

(O Allah, I seek Your forgiveness for all my sins. I ask You to forgive me for all my wrongdoings [mazalim] against people that You have recorded, for there are many rights [huquq] and dues [mazalim] owed to Your servants that I am burdened with and for which I am hostage [murtahin]. O Allah, even if these (wrongdoings) are many they are insignificant in comparison with the magnitude of Your forgiveness. O Allah, any male or female servant of Yours who has rights upon me, in either that I have unjustly taken from him [ghasabtu] in regards to his land, possession, honor, body; whether he was absent or present; or he or his representatives demanded it from me and neither was I able to return it to him nor did I seek release of it from him. So I ask You through Your benevolence, generosity, and abundance of what You possess that You satisfy them on my behalf, and not give them a position over me that will decrease my good deeds; for You possess what You can satisfy them with on my behalf and I do not possess what to satisfy them with; and do not allow for their bad deeds to find a path over my good deeds on the Day of Judgment.)
[From ‘The Prayers of Forgiveness that Save from the Hellfire’ by Hasan al-Basri]

Allah! There is none worthy of worship but He, the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists. Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission? He knows what happens to them in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter. And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills. His Throne extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is the Most High, the Most Great. (Recite in Arabic after each prayer.)

One who recites Ayatul Kursi after every fardh salah, during death his soul will be taken out as easily as one takes out a strand of hair from dry Flour. Another hadith narrates that nothing will be between him and heaven who recites Ayatul Kursi after ever fardh salat immediately in d position he is seated.

Dua # 9

قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ الْفَلَقِ ۞ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا خَلَقَ ۞ وَمِنْ شَرِّ غَاسِقٍ إِذَا وَقَبَ ۞ وَمِنْ شَرِّ النَّفَّاثَاتِ فِي الْعُقَدِ۞ وَمِنْ شَرِّ حَاسِدٍ إِذَا حَسَدَ

[Ref:  An Nasai 114: 1-6, Abu Dawud 2/86, An-Nasa’i 3/68. See also Al-Albani, SahihAt-Tirmithi 2/8.]

Imaam Ahmad collected a narration mentioning that ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir (may Allaah be pleased with him) was ordered by the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) to recite the mu’awwithaat (the last three soorahs of the Qur’aan: Ikhlaas, Falaq, and Naas) after each prayer.

[It is #17417 in the Musnad (28/633 of Ar-Risaalah), and Al-Albaanee declared it to be authentic in his checking of Shaykh Al-Islaam’s Al-Kalim At-Tayyib (p.114)]

(Hisnul Hasin)

After Witr Prayer

Recite:

سُبْحَانَ الْمَلِكِ الْقُدُّوسِ

“I mention the Purity of the Owner, i.e. Allah who is Pure”.

or read

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِرِضَاكَ مِنْ سَخَطِكَ وَبِمُعَافَاتِكَ مِنْ عُقُوبَتِكَ وَأَعُوذَ بِكَ مِنْكَ لَا أُحْصِي ثَنَاءً عَلَيْكَ أَنْتَ كَمَا أَثْنَيْتَ عَلَى نَفْسِكَ

“O Allah, I seek Your refuge (protection) from your displeasure through. Your pleasure and from Your punishment with forgiveness. I seek refuge from all calamities and punishments. I have no words to Praise You as You have praised Yourself.

(Hisnul Hasin)

After Chasht (Forenoon) Prayer

Recite:

اللَّهُمَّ بِكَ أَحُولُ وَبِكَ أَصُولُ وَبِكَ أُقَاتِلُ

“O Allah, grant me the achievements of my goals (objects and purposes) for it is only with Your aid that I can attack the enemy and with Your assistance that I can declare Jihaad on them”.

(Hisnul Hasin)

After Fajr & Maghrib Prayer

Muslim Taimi (R.A.) narrates from Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W.) to recite the following seven times before speaking to anyone:

اللَّهُمَّ أَجِرْنِي مِنَ النَّارِ

“O Allah, save me from the fire (Jahannam).”

If a person recites the above dua and dies the same night, he will be saved from Jahannam and if he recites it seven times after Fajr Salaat before speaking to anyone and if he dies on that same day, he will be saved from Jahannam.

(Mishkat from Abu Dawood)

In another hadith Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W.) stated that if a person recites the following dua 10 times while sitting in the Tashahudd position, then for each time ten rewards are written for him and ten sins are removed from the Name-Amal and he will be saved from every evil thing and the accursed Satan and no other sin besides shirk will be able to destroy him. In relation to actions, he will be superior to all other people. If anyone recites more than the above, he will go further and that is a different matter.

(Mishkat)

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ بِيَدِهِ الْخَيْرُ يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٍ

“Besides Allah there is no other worthy of worship. He is Alone and has no partner. His is the Kingdom and to Him is all praise, in His hands is good, He gives and takes life (gives death) and He has power overall things”.

(Mishkat)

Dua after salaat of need

Abdullah bin Auf (R.A.) narrates that Prophet Mohammad (SAW.) said that if a person has a need either from Allah or man, he should perform wudhu properly, perform two rakaats Nawafil Salaat, praise Allah and send Durood to Prophet Mohammad (SAW.) and recite the following dua:

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ الْحَلِيمُ الْكَرِيمُ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ أَسْأَلُكَ مُوجِبَاتِ رَحْمَتِكَ وَعَزَائِمَ مَغْفِرَتِكَ وَالْغَنِيمَةَ مِنْ كُلِّ بِرٍّ وَالسَّلَامَةَ مِنْ كُلِّ إِثْمٍ لَا تَدَعْ لِي ذَنْبَاً إِلَّا غَفَرْتَهُ وَلَا هَمَّاً إِلَّا فَرَّجْتَهُ وَلَا حَاجَةً هِيَ لَكَ رِضَاً إِلَّا قَضَيْتَهَا يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ

“There is none worthy of worship besides Allah, who is the affectionate and most helpful. He is pure and is the Lord of the Arsh (throne). All praise belongs to Allah. O Allah, I desire (seek) that which makes Your mercy compulsory and the things that necessitate Your forgiveness, and portion of every good and safety from every sin. O Merciful of the Merciful, forgive (pardon) my sins and remove all my worries and fulfill all my needs as You desire.

(Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah)

Allah’s Beautiful 99 Names (Asmaullahi-Husna)

99_Names_of_Allah_Al_Asma_Al_Husna

It is a principle in Islam to say about Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) what he himself has tought us, and not more. These include His most beautiful names that are mentioned in the Quran and explain its properties at the same time. Allah asks us in Verse 180 of the 7th Sura, that weshall cal him with his “most beautiful names” (Al-Asmaul Husna).

It is therefore recommended that we bring to our supplications His most beautiful names in connection with our request: for example, if the Muslim is in trouble, he may ask the most “Gracious” for relief. If you’re in need of money, so it is clearly correct to ask the “supplier” or “Giver of gifts without measure” and “The Rich One” etc.

In Sura 59, verse 22-23 and following states:

هو الله الذي لا إله إلا هو عالم الغيب والشهادة هو الرحمن الرحيم هو الله الذي لا إله إلا هو الملك القدوس السلام المؤمن المهيمن العزيز الجبار المتكبر سبحان الله عما يشركون

“He is Allah, than whom there is no other God, the Knower of the invisible and the visible. He is the Beneficent, the Merciful. He is Allah, than whom there is no other God, the Sovereign Lord the Holy One, Peace, the Keeper of Faith, the Guardian, the Majestic, the Compeller, the Superb. Glorified be Allah from all that they ascribe as partner (unto Him). He is Allah, the Creator, the Shaper out of naught, the Fashioner. His are the most beautiful names. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorifieth Him, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.”

“Our Lord! You have not created (all) this without purpose, glory to You! (Exalted be You above all that they associate with You as partners). Give us salvation from the torment of the Fire. *Our Lord! Verily, whom You admit to the Fire, indeed, You have disgraced him, and never will the Zaalimoon (polytheists and wrong-doers) find any helpers. *Our Lord! Verily, we have heard the call of one (Muhammad p.b.u.h.) calling to Faith: ‘Believe in your Lord,’ and we have believed. *Our Lord! Forgive us our sins and remit from us our evil deeds, and make us die in the state of righteousness along with Al-Abraar (those who are obedient to Allah and follow strictly His Orders). *Our Lord!

[I seek refuge in Allah] from the evil of Your slave [name of the person], his helpers, his followers and his supporters from among the jinn and mankind. O Allah, be my support against their evil. Glorious are Your praises and mighty is Your patronage. Blessed is Your Name, there is no god but You.

O Allah to you to You belongs all praise. O Allah, none can restrict what You have released, nor release that which You have restricted. [None can guide whom You misguide, nor misguide whom You guide.] None can prevent what You have willed to bestow and none can bestow what You have willed to prevent. None can bring near what You had made far nor make far what You had brought near. O Allah, give us in abundance from Your blessings, Your mercy, Your favours and Your sustenance. O Allah, I ask You for eternal bliss, which does not change, nor does it end. O Allah, I ask You for bliss on the day of destitution and safety on the Day of fear. O Allah, I seek refuge with You from the evils of that which you had given us, and the evil of that You had prevented from us, O Allah endear to us faith and beautify it in our hearts, and cause us to abhor infidelity, immorality and sinning, and make us of the guided ones, O Allah, let us die as Muslims, and make us live as Muslims, and join us with the righteous [in the hereafter] and do not put us to shame nor make us fall to temptation, O Allah wage war against the infidels who reject Your messengers, and prevent[men] from your path, and inflict upon them Your wrath and punishment, O Allah wage war against the infidels who have received the book, O True God.

“Say that All praise belongs to Allah who has no children nor any partner in His ownership, nor any dependent, and in the proper manner we mention His greatness”.

(Hisnul Hasin)

Dua for sharpening one’s memory

duas-increase-improve-memory

Surat Ţāhā verses 25-28:

قَالَ رَبِّ اشْرَحْ لِي صَدْرِي

وَيَسِّرْ لِي أَمْرِي

وَاحْلُلْ عُقْدَةً مِّن لِّسَانِي

يَفْقَهُوا قَوْلِي

Translation: [Moses (عليه السلام)] said, “My Lord, expand for me my breast [with assurance] And ease for me my task And untie the knot from my tongue That they may understand my speech.

To improve your memory the following dua is very beneficial. It was prescribed to Ali (رضي الله عنه) when he complained of his weak memory. The method of dua is thus:

On a Thursday night, wake up in the last portion of the night. If the last portion is difficult, then wake up the middle of the night. If that too is difficult, then the first portion of the night. Preform four rakat in such a manner that in the first rakah you recite Surah Al-Fatiha and Surah Yaseen. In the second rakah Surah Al-Fatiha and Surah Al-Dukhan. In the third rakah Surah Al-Fatiha and Al-Sajdah. In the forth rakah Al-Fatiha and Surah Al-Mulk. After completing the Salah praise Allah and send salutations upon Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and the rest of the Prophets. Ask for forgiveness for all the Muslims and all those who passed away with Iman. Then at the end recite the following dua:

اللَّهُمَّ ارْحَمْنِي بِتَرْكِ الْمَعَاصِي أَبَدًا مَا أَبْقَيْتَنِي وَارْحَمْنِي أَنْ أَتَكَلَّفَ مَا لَا يَعْنِينِي وَارْزُقْنِي حُسْنَ النَّظَرِ فِيمَا يُرْضِيكَ عَنِّي اللَّهُمَّ بَدِيعَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ذَا الْجَلَالِ وَالْإِكْرَامِ وَالْعِزَّةِ الَّتِي لَا تُرَامُ أَسْأَلُكَ يَا أَللَّهُ يَا رَحْمَنُ بِجَلَالِكَ وَنُورِ وَجْهِكَ أَنْ تُلْزِمَ قَلْبِي حِفْظَ كِتَابِكَ كَمَا عَلَّمْتَنِي وَارْزُقْنِي أَنْ أَتْلُوَهُ عَلَى النَّحْوِ الَّذِي يُرْضِيكَ عَنِّيَ اللَّهُمَّ بَدِيعَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ذَا الْجَلَالِ وَالْإِكْرَامِ وَالْعِزَّةِ الَّتِي لَا تُرَامُ أَسْأَلُكَ يَا أَللَّهُ يَا رَحْمَنُ بِجَلَالِكَ وَنُورِ وَجْهِكَ أَنْ تُنَوِّرَ بِكِتَابِكَ بَصَرِي وَأَنْ تُطْلِقَ بِهِ لِسَانِي وَأَنْ تُفَرِّجَ بِهِ عَنْ قَلْبِي وَأَنْ تَشْرَحَ بِهِ صَدْرِي وَأَنْ تَغْسِلَ بِهِ بَدَنِي فَإِنَّهُ لَا يُعِينُنِي عَلَى الْحَقِّ غَيْرُكَ وَلَا يُؤْتِيهِ إِلَّا أَنْتَ وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ الْعَلِيِّ الْعَظِيمِ

Translation: O Allah, have mercy on me by abandonment of sins forever, so long as You keep me remaining. And have mercy on me from taking upon myself what does not concern me, and provide me good sight for what will make You pleased with me. O Allah, Originator of the heavens and the earth, Possessor of glory, and generosity, and honor that is not exceeded. I ask you, O Allah, O Rahman, by Your glory and the light of Your Face, to make my heart constant in remembering Your Book as You taught me, and grant me that I recite it in the manner that will make You please with me. O Allah, Originator of the heavens and the earth, Possessor of glory, and generosity, and honor that is not exceeded. I ask you, O Allah, O Rahman, by Your glory and the light of Your Face, to enlighten my sight with Your Book, and make my tongue free with it, and to relieve my heart with it, and to expand my chest with it, and to wash my body with it. For indeed, none aids me upon the truth other than You, and none give it except You, and there is no might or power except by Allah, the Most High, the Magnificent.

(Jami at-Tirmidhi, Vol. 6, 45, Ch. 113, Hadith No. 3570)

Many people also advise that you place your right hand on your forehead after every Fardh Salaat and recite, ‘Yaa Qawiyyu’  يا القوى) 11) times.  However, the ideal is to make Du’aa the Sunnah way.

اسلام کا مجاہد تلوار اٹھا رہا ہے

اسلام کا مجاہد تلوار اٹھا رہا ہے
اب غزنویؒ کا بیٹا میدان مے آ رہا ہے
امن وامان کا جھنڈا لہرایگا ہر جانب
اک اجنبی بھی ہوگا اپنا عزیز صاحب
با دل طمانیت کا ہر سمت چھا رہا ہے

اب غوریؒ کا بیٹا میدان میں آ رہا ہے
بنیاد بے الہ میں لو پڈ گی دراریں
الحاد و شرک و فتنہ کھانے لگا پچھاڈیں
زور و جبر کا لہجہ اب کپ کپا رہا ہے

خالدؓ کا جانشین اب میدان میں آ رہا ہے
سوے حرم دریچے یادوں کے کھل رہیں ہیں
اب لا الہ کے نغمے کانوں مے گھل رہیں ہیں
حی علی الجہاد اب کوئی سنا رہا ہے

اب ٹوٹ کر رہے گا مایوسیوں کا گھیرا
حرمین کے افق سے ابھرے گا اب سویرا
موسم اداسیوں کا اب مٹتا جا رہا ہے

مل جائے گا یقینن تدبیر کو کرینہ
ساحل پے آ لگےگا تقدیر کا سفینہ
نیکی کا ولولہ اب جلوہ دکھا رہا ہے

ہاتھوں میں تھام کر اب قرآن کا صحیفہ
جان و جگر کے خون سے آلون کا وظیفہ
اب وقت کی جبیں پر کوئی لکھا رہا ہے

بارش سعادتوں کی ہوگی ضرور اب کے
سوکھی سی ٹہنیو پر اے گا بور ابکے
بنجر زمین پی سبزے کا رنگ آ رہا ہے

منہ زور سی جفائیں اب نہ کرینگی یورش
ایمان کی اذان سے نابود ہوگی شورش
گم کر ذرا مسلمان مرکل پے آ رہا ہے

مندر میں دیکھنا اب ہیبت سے بت گرینگے
مت جانا اصلحے پر بے تیگ بھی لڑینگے

اب جنگ کا پانسہ پلٹے گا

اب جنگ کا پانسہ پلٹے گا
بندوق چلائی جائے گی
ہتھیار سجیں گے جسموں پر
تلوار اٹھائی جائے گی

اہل ایمان کا ہر حملہ
کافر کا دل دہلاے گا
حق باطل سے ٹکراے گا
اور ظلم و ستم مٹ جائے گا

مندر میں اذانیں گونجیں گی
یہ دین پھیلایا جائے گا
قرآن کو اٹھایا جائے گا
سینے سے لگایا جائے گا

مسلم کی غیرت جاگے گی
باطل کو مٹایا جائے گا
پھر دورے خلافت آے گا
اور پرچم حق لہراے گا

بھی مسلم اک ہو جاینگے
سب اندھیرے چھٹ جاینگے
اور دین محمّد ﷺ کے وارث
انصاف کی صبحیں لاینگے
