Prophet Dawud’s Du’a

Assalam alaikum wa rahmatullah.
Today’s dua is one of prophet dawud’s dua (AS).
Abud-Darda’ (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “One of Prophet Dawud’s supplications was: *’Allahumma inni as’aluka hubbaka, wa hubba man yuhibbuka, wal-‘amalalladhi yuballighuni hubbaka. Allahumm-aj’al hubbaka ahabba ilayya min nafsi, wa ahli, wa minal-ma’il-baridi (O Allah! I ask You for Your Love, the love of those who love You, and deeds which will cause me to attain Your Love. O Allah! Make Your Love dearer to me than myself, my family and the cold water).”‘*
[At- Tirmidhi].
وعن أبي الدرداء، رضي الله عنه، قال‏:‏ رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم‏:‏ ‏”‏كان من دعاء داود عليه السلام‏:‏ *”اللهم إني أسألك حبك، وحب من يحبك، والعمل الذي يبلغني حبك، اللهم اجعل حبك أحب إلى من نفسي، وأهلي، ومن الماء البارد”‏‏.*‏ رواه الترمذي وقال حديث حسن‏.‏

*DUA OF IBRAHIM*

Assalam alaikum wa rahmatullah sisters. Hope we are all in a high state of iman. May Allah ease our affairs all.
*DUA OF IBRAHIM*
رَبِّ هَبْ لِي حُكْمًا وَأَلْحِقْنِي بِالصَّالِحِينَ 
Rabbi hab li hukman wa alhiqni bis salihiin
 My Lord! Bestow Hukm on me, and join me with the righteous
وَاجْعَل لِّي لِسَانَ صِدْقٍ فِي الْآخِرِينَ

Wa ij’alli lisaana sidqin fil aakhariin
And grant me an honorable mention in later generations
وَاجْعَلْنِي مِن وَرَثَةِ جَنَّةِ النَّعِيمِ

Wa ij’alnii miw warathati jannatin na’iim
And make me one of the inheritors of the Paradise of Delight
[Surah Ash-Shu’araa 26:83-85]
*Tafseer Ibn Kathir of above Verses*:
Here Ibrahim, upon him be peace, asks his Lord to give him Hukm. Ibn `Abbas said, “This is knowledge.”
وَأَلْحِقْنِى بِالصَّـلِحِينَ
(and join me with the righteous.) means, `make me one of the righteous in this world and the Hereafter.’ This is like the words the Prophet said three times when he was dying:
«اللَّهُمَّ فِي الرَّفِيقِ الْأَعْلَى»
(O Allah, with the Exalted Companion (of Paradise)).
وَاجْعَل لِّى لِسَانَ صِدْقٍ فِى الاٌّخِرِينَ
(And grant me an honorable mention in later generations.) meaning, `cause me to be remembered in a good manner after my death, so that I will be spoken of and taken as a good example.’ This is like the Ayah,
وَتَرَكْنَا عَلَيْهِ فِى الاٌّخِرِينَ سَلَـمٌ عَلَى إِبْرَهِيمَ كَذَلِكَ نَجْزِى الْمُحْسِنِينَ
(And We justify for him (a goodly remembrance) among the later generations: “Salam (peace) be upon Ibrahim. Thus indeed do we reward the good doers.) (37:108-110)
وَاجْعَلْنِى مِن وَرَثَةِ جَنَّةِ النَّعِيمِ
(And make me one of the inheritors of the Paradise of Delight.) meaning, `bless me in this world with honorable mention after I am gone, and in the Hereafter by making me one of the inheritors of the Paradise of Delight.’

DUA DURING HARDSHIP

Abdullah Ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that when Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was distressed he would recite:

‘La ilaha illalahul ‘Azimul Halim, La ilaha illallahu Rabbul ‘Arshil ‘Azim, La ilaha illallahu Rabbus Samawati Wa Rabbul Ardi Wa Rabbul ‘Arshil Karim’
(لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ الْعَظِيمُ الْحَلِيمُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ رَبُّ السَّمَوَاتِ وَرَبُّ الْأَرْضِ وَرَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْكَرِيمِ)
There is no God but Allah, the magnificent, the forbearing. There is no God but Allah, lord of the glorious throne. There is no God but Allah, Lord of the heavens and the earth, and lord of the glorious throne.
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 6346 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2730)

*SUNNAH OF EID AL-ADHA*

Standard
*SUNNAH OF EID AL-ADHA*

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ taught us to fill these blessed days and nights with the remembrance of Allah generally and specifically with the takbir in which we express Allah’s greatness and transcendence.  He said ﷺ: *“Beautify your Eid days with the takbir.*”[1] It is recommended to make the takbir after every prayer (fard or nafl) from Fajr on the Day of `Arafah (9th Dhu’l-Hijjah) until `Asr on the 13th, the final day of the three Days of Tashriq.
We should read it with our hearts filled with the greatness of Allah so that we are not merely repeating words without experiencing their meaning.
There are different forms of the takbir. Here is one of them:
اللهُ أَكبرُ اللهُ أَكبرُ اللهُ أَكبر , لا إله إلا الله , الله أكبر الله أكبر ولِلَّهِ الحَمْد
اللهُ أَكبرُ اللهُ أَكبرُ اللهُ أَكبر , لا إله إلا الله , الله أكبر الله أكبر ولِلَّهِ الحَمْد
اللهُ أَكبرُ اللهُ أَكبرُ اللهُ أَكبر , لا إله إلا الله , الله أكبر الله أكبر ولِلَّهِ الحَمْد
الله أكبرُ كَبيرا والحمدُ لله كثيرا وسُبْحانَ اللهِ بُكْرَةً وأَصيلاَ .
لا إله إلا الله لا نَعْبُدُ إلا إِيَّاهُ مُخْلِصِين لَهُ الدِّينَ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الكافِرون .
لا إله إلا الله  وَحْدَه صَدَقَ وَعْدَه ونَصَرَ عَبْدَه  وأَعَزَّ جُنْدَه وهَزَمَ الأَحْزَابَ وَحْدَه
لا إله إلا الله واللهُ أكبرْ ولِلَّهِ الحَمْد
Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar la ilaha ill’Allah. Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar wa lillahi al-hamd 
Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar la ilaha ill’Allah. Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar wa lillahi al-hamd 
 Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar la ilaha ill’Allah. Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar wa lillahi al-hamd 
 Allahu akbar kabira w’al-hamdulillahi kathira wa subhanallahi bukratan wa asila
 La ilaha ill’Allahu la na`budu illa iyyahu mukhlisina lahu’ddina wa law kariha’l-kafirun
 La ilaha ill’Allahu wahdahu sadaqa wa`dahu wa nasara `abdahu wa a`zza jundahu wa hazam al-ahzaba wahdah
 La ilaha ill’Allahu w’Allahu akbar wa lillahi’l-hamd
 [“Allah is most great. There is no deity save Him, all praise belongs to Him.
 There is no deity save Him and we worship none but Him in complete sincerity even if the disbelievers dislike it.
 There is no deity save Him alone. He fulfilled His promise, gave victory to His slave, made mighty His forces and He alone destroyed the Confederates. Allah is most great, there is no deity save Him, all praise belongs to Him.”]
 

We should do what we are able to implement of the other sunnahs of the Eid. Among them are:
-> taking a bath whether or not one is attending the Eid prayer  

-> wearing one’s best clothes. The Messenger of Allah ﷺ had special garments that he would only wear on Eid. 

-> He would not eat or drink anything until after the Eid prayer and the first thing he ate was from the animal he had sacrificed. 

-> It is recommended to walk to the prayer, taking a seperate route on the way there and returning by a different route. 

-> One should shake hands with one’s brethren and congratulate them on the Eid. 

-> One should be especially generous to one’s family, display one’s happiness on the occasion and try to visit/call one’s relatives and friends.
Barakallahu feekum. Have a blessed eid. 💞

Dr. Sa’eed bin Ali Al-Qahtani, Dar-us-Salam Publication
The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم Breathes his Last:
When the pangs of death started, ‘Aishah leant him against her. She used to say: One of Allâh’s bounties upon me is that the Messenger of Allâh (صلى الله عليه وسلم) died in my house, while I am still alive. He died between my chest and neck while he was leaning against me. Allâh has mixed his saliva with mine at his death. For ‘Abdur Rahman — the son of Abu Bakr — came in with a Siwak (i.e. the root of a desert plant used for brushing teeth) in his hand, while I was leaning the Messenger of Allâh (Peace be upon him) against me. I noticed that he was looking at theSiwak, so I asked him — for I knew that he wanted it — “Would you like me to take it for you?” He صلى الله عليه وسلم nodded in agreement. I took it and gave it to him. As it was too hard for him, I asked him “Shall I soften it for you?” He صلى الله عليه وسلم nodded in agreement. So I softened it with my saliva and he passed it (on his teeth). In another version it is said: “So he brushed (Istanna) his teeth as nice as he could.” There was a water container (Rakwa) available at his hand with some water in. He put his hand in it and wiped his face with it and said:
“There is none worthy of worship but Allâh. Death is full of agonies.”
As soon as he had finished his Siwak brushing, he صلى الله عليه وسلم raised his hand or his finger up, looked upwards to the ceiling and moved his lips. So ‘Aishah listened to him. She heard him say:
*With those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace with the Prophets and the Truthful ones (As-Siddeeqeen), the martyrs and the good doers. O Allâh, forgive me and have mercy upon me and join me to Companionship on high*.”
Then at intervals he صلى الله عليه وسلم uttered these words: “The most exalted Companionship on high. To Allâh we turn and to Him we turn back for help and last abode.” This event took place at high morning time on Monday, the twelfth of Rabi‘ Al-Awwal, in the eleventh year of Al-Hijrah. He was sixty-three years and four days old when he died.

Du’a After Takbir

Du’a After Takbir

Assalam alaikum wa rahmatullah sisters. I hope we are all in a good state of iman in sha Allah. 
Our dua for the week
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Messenger ﷺ used to keep silent between the Takbir and the recitation of Qur’an and that interval of silence used to be a short one. I said to the Prophetﷺ  “May my parents be sacrificed for you! What do you say in the pause between Takbir and recitation?” The Prophet ﷺ said, “I say,
اللَّهُمَّ بَاعِدْ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَ خَطَايَايَ كَمَا بَاعَدْتَ بَيْنَ الْمَشْرِقِ وَالْمَغْرِبِ، اللَّهُمَّ نَقِّنِي مِنْ خَطَايَايَ، كَمَا يُنَقَّى الثَّوْبُ الْأَ بْيَضُ مِنَ الدَّنَسِ، اللَّهُمَّ اغْسِلْنِي مِنْ خَطَايَايَ بِالثَّلْجِ وَالْمَاءِ وَالْبَرَدِ
Allaahumma baa’id baynee wa bayna khataayaaya kamaa baa’adta baynal-mashriqi walmaghribi, Allaahumma naqqinee min khataayaaya kamaa yunaqqath-thawbul-‘abyadhu minad-danasi, Allaahum-maghsilnee min khataayaaya, bith-thalji walmaa’i walbarad
O Allah , separate me from my sins as You have separated the East from the West. O Allah, cleanse me of my transgressions as the white garment is cleansed of stains . O Allah , wash away my sins with ice and water and frost.

Du’a In The Final Tashahud

SEEKING REFUGE FROM FOUR THINGS IN THE FINAL TASHAHUD
اللهم إني أعوذ بك من عذاب جهنم ومن عذاب القبر ومن فتنة المحيا والممات ومن شر فتنة المسيح الدجال
Allaahumma ‘innee a’oothu bika min ‘adhaabil-qabri, wa min ‘adhaabi Jahannama, wa min fitnatil-Mahyaa wal Mamaati, wa min sharri Fitnatil-Maseehid-Dajjal
O Allah, I take refuge in You from the punishment of the grave, from the torment of the Fire, from the trials and tribulations of life and death and from the evil affliction of Al-Maseeh Ad-Dajjal

This below was taken from Fatwas of Nur `Ala Al-Darb  
The majority of scholars held the view that this Du`a’ (supplication) falls under the category of stressed Sunnah. It was been reported on the authority of Tawus, one of the great Tabi`un (Followers, the generation after the Companions of the Prophet) that this Du`a’ is obligatory. Tawus is also reported to have ordered his son to repeat his Salah when he knew that he did not recite this Du`a’. This indicates that such Du`a’ is a stressed Sunnah, which the Mu’min should not miss in obligatory or voluntary Salah.
People are subject to trials in their lives and after death. One may commit sins or Bid`ah (innovation in Islam), or be exposed to Kufr (disbelief) in Allah’s Religion. One might be tempted with wealth, lusts, sins, or evil company, and commit acts which displease Allah, whether it be Kufr, Bid`ah, or sins during their lives or at their death. We ask Allah to grant us protection from it. One may be tested with the trial of Al-Masih-ul-Dajjal if they live during the time when he appears. Al-Masih-ul-Dajjal will appear at the end of time, claiming to be a prophet and lord of all creation. Many people will follow him. We seek refuge with Allah from this. They will be doomed because of their following him. One should ask the Lord to protect them from these trials, because they do not know whether they will be saved or not. Therefore, one must ask Allah to protect them from the torment of Hellfire, the punishment of the grave, the trials of life and death and the trial of Al-Masih-ul-Dajjal. Everyone is in need of this Du`a’ so that they will not be tried in their life or upon dying; and so that they will not experience the trial of Al-Masih-ul-Dajjal if they happen to live at the time when he appears. We ask Allah to save us from this.
