Ramadhan 1430, sharing, Ya Rabb

calling out during this month of accepted Du’a

By In

Ya Rabb, many troubles You have removed from my path; much sorrow have You dispelled; much misery have You mitigated; and at all times You spread out mercy, and cut short the tightening circles of misfortunes.

Alhamdulillah, with full gratitude for all His bounties.

Subhan Allah, Who has not taken unto Himself a wife, nor a son, and Who has no partner in sovereignty, nor any protecting friend through dependence. Subhanahu wa ta’ala!

Subhan Allah, Who has no opposition to His rule, nor any challenge to His commands.

Subhan Allah, Who has no counsel to meddle with His operation of creation, nor is there anything similar to Him in His greatness.

Subhan Allah, Whose commandments operate in Creation; His glory is evident through love and kindness. His distinct overflowing generosity is freely available through His unlimited bestowals which do not exhaust His resources, and He does not swell the numerous benefits except because of generosity and kindness. Verily He is Mighty, Generous.

O Allah, truly, when You pardon my sins, overlook my mistakes, and cover up my foul actions, You show consideration in spite of my many transgressions committed willfully or negligently…I know I ask for that which I do not deserve, but you are Ghafoorun Raheem.

You are Most Merciful of those who show mercy.

So I persist in calling out, believing in You, and I invoke You, assured of Your loving kindness whenever I turn to You…

I have had many setbacks, and I, out of ignorance, begin to despair, although perhaps it may be a blessing in disguise. You alone know (all) the consequences.I know no generous master who is more accommodating to dissatisfied servants than You are to me.

Ya Rabb, You give an invitation but I turn it down, yet You do not abstain from
bestowing favors and blessings on me from Your mercy and generosity, so have mercy on Your ignorant servant. Verily, You are generous and kind.

Subhan Allah, the owner of sovereignty, Who sets the course of the skies and the stars, controls the winds, causes the daybreak, and administers authority, the Lord of the worlds.

Subhan Allah for His amnesty ensuing from His omnipotence.

Subahn Allah for the respite He allows in spite of provocation. He is able to do what He wills.

Subhan Allah, the Creator of all the created beings, Who makes sustenance freely available, starts the day, the owner of glory, might, favors, and bounties, Who is far away, invisible, and nearest, so near that He is fully aware of the whispered secrets, the Blessed, the Praised.

Subhan Allah, Who has no equal to challenge Him, nor is there an image comparable to Him, nor a helper to assist Him. He tames the powerful by His force, and disgraced are the terrible before His greatness; so He, through His power, fulfills that which He wills.

Subhan Allah, Who gives answer to me whenever I call Him; covers up my shortcomings yet I disobey Him; gives me the largest part of the bounties yet I want more. Many favors He has sanctioned; many terrible dangers He has averted; and many blossoming joys he has made available for me. Therefore, I sing His praises and recite His glorification.

Subhan Allah! None can disclose anything hidden by Him; none can shut the doors kept open by Him; no one who makes a request is sent away disappointed by Him; and no one who looks long and attentively is deluded in his hopes.

Subhan Allah, Who gives protection to the frightened; comes to the help of the upright; promotes the cause of the weak and the enslaved; annihilates the autocrats.

Subhan Allah, Who breaks everything belonging to the oppressors; puts an end to the tyrants; brings assistance to those who cry out for help; meets and clears up the demands of the needy beseechers; supports the faithful.

Subhan Allah! In his awe-inspiring fear, the heavens and its dwellers tremble and shiver; the earth and its inhabitants shake and quiver; the oceans and all that floats and swims in its waters flow together in excitement and tumult.

Subhan Allah, Who creates but is not created; gives subsistence but needs no provisions; gives food to eat but takes no nourishment; makes the living dead and brings the dead to life; and He is the everliving, there is no death for Him; in His hands is all the good. And He is able to do all things.

Alhamdulillah, Who has guided us to this. We could not truly have been led aright if Allah had not guided us.

O Allah, let us bear out and hold up that which You make known to us as the truth, and let us be fully aware of that which we fall short of doing.

O Allah, through Your religion, set in order our disorder; gather and unite our communities; stitch together our sundered separation; turn our want and poverty into sufficiency; lift us up from our degradation; free us from our misery; pull us out from our debts; help us to get out from the ditch of cares and sorrows; fill the gap created by confusion among us; let our difficulties be easy to deal with; refine our substance; let our efforts succeed well and secure success; make us fulfill our promises; give answers to our prayers; listen to our requests; cause us to obtain the good of this world and the hereafter; give us much and more than our expectations, O the best of givers and bestowers; and cleanse our hearts, unburden our emotions from hate and anger, and, in the event of dispute in the matter of truth, show us the right path. Verily, You guide whoever You will to the right path.

Ya Allah, help me and all of my Muslim brothers and sisters around the world change our erring ways and guide us to the Straight Path. Help us all live the life of true Muslims, striving towards the example of Your Beloved Messenger, Muhammad SallAllahu alaihi wasallam and his Companions RadhiAllahu anhum.

Ya Allah, help us to overcome our state of affairs. Disperse the ominous clouds hanging over our heads; lend a helping hand to achieve success; bring in the rule of justice and fair play; make us bright, free from grief; and take care of us. Through Your mercy, O most Merciful.

Ya Allah, and send blessings on Muhammad and on his family, Your servant, Messenger, confidant, friend, beloved intimate, mercy unto all the created beings, bearer of Your sacraments, last of Your messengers, the most superior, the exquisite, the most perfect, the upright, the thoroughly purified, the sublime; who has more and better blessings, advantages, mercies, affections and salutations than You made available to any one of Your servants, prophets, messengers, friends, and those honored by You from among Your created beings.

AMEEN AMEEN AMEEN.

This poignant Du’a was shining from my inbox, having been sent by a Dear Sister, JazakiLlahu khairan Katheera. Insha’Allah you too read this and then share it with others.

All good is from Allah Ta’ala whereas mistakes are from this humble speck. May Allah Ta’ala Bless all readers, bringing you all closer to Him and His Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam.  May He accept our humble efforts and grant us the capacity to be good and do good. Ameen.

sharing

…recently…

…recently we have been days without water…and other times without electricity…the first thought always is ‘just how did our predecessors cope?’…it is…

    Jazakiallah khaira for sharing this dear sister.

    Alhumdulilah all is well out here in the North. Our Ramadhan is passing by much too swiftly. As we pray Taraweh Ali lays on the prayer mat looking up at us and thinking we’re playing a game with him, subhanallah! Salams to you and yours.
