The Ultimate Ramadaan Du3aa’ List

bismillaah1Beautiful authentic du3aa’s from Qur’aan & sunnah that Brother Navaid 3Aziz, posted on his facebook page (1) last Ramadaan. This du3aa’ list will be beneficial for everyone in-shaa’-Allaah.

Here is the message & full post by Brother Navaid, with slight modification & references. I have also added a pdf version of the du3aa’.

Brother Navaid 3Aziz wrote,

Assalaamu 3Alaykum everyone, I looked at the greatest needs we have in this day and age and selected 7 du3aa’s from the Qur’aan and Sunnah that I feel would be in the best interests of every Muslim.

It would be ideal to print this list (or have it on your phone) and keep it handy at the time of Iftaar. Likewise, please add to your list anything else that you would like, especially that which your heart desires.

For your convenience I have included the Arabic, English transliteration, and English translation.

I pray Allah accepts from us all, and makes us from those who are forgiven and pardoned this Ramadaan and entered into Al-Firdaws in the hereafter. Aameen.

Do Not Despair, Put Your Trust In Allaah

flower bism

A beautiful advice, a must watch for all, specially for every distressed person who is overwhelmed by hardships, worries, illness or any diseases.

No one can dispel the worries & remove the sorrows except the Ever-living, the Sustainer of all that exists; the one who neither slumber nor sleep.

The purpose of trials is, so that you flee from Allaah to Allaah. Increase in your du3aa’, plead and beseech Him, for He is more merciful to you than you are to yourself !!

Du3aa’ To Remove Sadness, Anxiety

Best Du3aa on the day of 3Arafah


It was narrated from 3Abdullaah ibn 3Amr ibn al-3Aas (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “The best of du3aa’ is du3aa’ on the day of 3Arafah, and the best that I and the Prophets before me said is:

لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له ، له الملك ، وله الحمد ، وهو على كل شيء قدير‘

Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul-mulk wa lahul-hamd wa huwa 3ala kulli shay’in qadeer’

(There is no god but Allaah alone, with no partner or associate; His is the dominion, to Him be praise, and He has power over all things).” (1)

It was narrated from Talhah ibn 3Ubayd ibn Kurayz in a mursal report: “The best of du3aa’ is du3aa’ on the day of 3Arafah.” (2).

The scholars differed concerning this virtue of du3aa’ on the day of 3Arafah, whether it applies only to those who are in 3Arafah or it includes other places. The more correct view is that it is general and that the virtue is connected to the day, but undoubtedly those who are in 3Arafah have combined the virtue of the place with the virtue of the time.

Al-Baaji (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

The words “the best of du3aa’ is on the day of 3Arafah” mean the dhikr with the greatest blessing, the greatest reward and that which is most likely to be answered. It may be interpreted as referring to pilgrims only, because the meaning of du3aa’ on the day of 3Arafah is very true in their case, and applies especially to them. But if the day of 3Arafah is regarded in general terms, it is described as such because of the pilgrims being there. And Allaah knows best”. (3)

Virtues of the Day of 3Arafah


     

1. It is the day on which the religion was perfected and Allaah’s Favour was completed.

It was reported from 3Umar ibn al-Khattaab (may Allaah be pleased with him) that a Jewish man said to him, “O Ameer al-Mu’mineen, there is an aayah in your Book which you recite; if it had come to us Jews, we would have taken that day as an 3Eed (festival).” 3Umar said, “Which aayah?” He said: (interpretation of the meaning) “This day I have perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.” [soorah Al-Maa’idah, v:3]

3Umar said, “We know on which day and in which place that was revealed to the Prophet sallAllaahu 3alayhi wa sallam. It was when he was standing in 3Arafah on a Friday.” (1)

2.  It is a day of 3Eid for the people who are in that place.

The Prophet sallAllaahu 3alayhi wa sallam said: “Yawm 3Arafah (the day of 3Arafah), Yawm al-Nahr (the Day of Sacrifice) and Ayyaam al-Tashreeq (the 3 days following Yawm al-Nahr) are 3Eid (festival) for us, the people of Islaam. These are days of eating and drinking.” (2)

It was reported that 3‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab said: “It ( i.e., the aayah ‘This day I have perfected…’) was revealed on a Friday, the Day of 3Arafah, both of which – praise be to Allaah – are 3Eids for us.”

3.  It is a day by which Allaah swore an oath.

The Almighty cannot swear by anything except that which is mighty. Yawm 3Arafah is the “witnessed day” mentioned in the aayah (interpretation of the meaning):

“By the witnessing day [Friday] and by the witnessed day [the Day of 3Arafah].” [soorah Al-Burooj, v:3].

It was reported from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet sallAllaahu 3alayhi wa sallam said: “The promised day is the Day of Resurrection, the witnessed day is the Day of 3Arafah, and the witnessing day is Friday.” (3)

It is the “odd” [i.e., odd-numbered, Witr] by which Allaah swore in the aayah (interpretation of the meaning): “And by the even and the odd” [soorah Al-Fajr, v:3].

Ibn 3Abbaas said: “The even is the Day of al-Adhaa [i.e., 10th Dhul-Hijjah] and the odd is the Day of 3Arafah [i.e., 9th Dhul-Hijjah]. This is also the view of 3Ikrimah and al-Dahhaak.

4.  Fasting on this day is an expiation for two years.

It was reported from Abu Qataadah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3alayhi wa sallam was asked about fasting on the Day of 3Arafah. He said, “It expiates for the sins of the previous year and of the coming year.” (4)

This (fasting) is mustahabb for those who are not on Hajj. In the case of the one who is on Hajj, it is not Sunnah for him to fast on the Day of 3Arafah, because the Prophet sallAllaahu 3alayhi wa sallam did not fast on this day in 3Arafah.

It was narrated that he forbade fasting on the Day of 3Arafah in 3Arafah.

5.  It is the day on which Allaah took the covenant from the progeny of Aadam.

It was reported that Ibn 3Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3alayhi wa sallam said: “Allaah took the covenant from the loins of Aadam in Na’maan, i.e., 3Arafah. He brought forth from his loins all his offspring and spread them before Him, then He addressed them, and said: ‘Am I not your Lord? They said, ‘Yes, we testify,’ let you should say on the Day of Resurrection: ‘Verily, we have been unaware of this.’ Or lest you should say: ‘It was only our fathers aforetime who took others as partners in worship along with Allaah, and we were (merely their) descendents after them; will You then destroy us because of the deeds of men who practised Al-Baatil (i.e., ploytheism and committing crimes and sins, invoking and worshipping others besides Allaah)?’ [soorah Al-A3raaf, v:172-173].” (5)

And there is no greater day than this and no greater covenant than this.

6.  It is the day of forgiveness of sins, freedom from the Fire and pride in the people who are there:

It was narrated from 3Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) that the Prophet sallAllaahu 3alayhi wa sallam said:“There is no day on which Allaah frees more people from the Fire than the Day of  3Arafah. He comes close and expresses His pride to the angels, saying, ‘What do these people want?’” (6)

It was reported from Ibn 3Umar that the Prophet sallAllaahu 3alayhi wa sallam said: “Allaah expresses His pride to His angels at the time of 3Ishaa’ on the Day of 3Arafah, about the people of 3Arafah. He says, ‘Look at My slaves who have come unkempt and dusty.’” (7)

In another Hadeeth:

“As for you staying till the evening in 3Arafah, then Allaah descends to the sky of the Duniya and He boasts about you to the Angels, and says: ‘My slaves have come to Me, looking rough, from every deep valley hoping for My mercy, so if your sins were equivalent to the amount of sand or the drops of rain or like the foam on the sea I will forgive them. So go forth My slaves! Having forgiveness and for what or who you have interceded for.’” (8)

And Allaah knows best.

We are POOR

For all the college students out there, we know that being broke (without money; penniless) is normal. But I’m here to tell the rest of you that you are all broke too. Every. Last. One of you.

You may be thinking: “I just graduated, I make an awesome salary, I just bought this brand new 09 car, and I’m doing very well!” Or, “I live my parents and they take care of me!”

Well my response to you is that you’re still broke. Very very poor.

Confused?

Read the words of your Rabb:

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ أَنْتُمُ الْفُقَرَاءُ إِلَى اللَّهِ ۖ وَاللَّهُ هُوَ الْغَنِيُّ الْحَمِيدُ

“O mankind! You are all Fuqaraa’ (who stand in need of Allaah, but Allaah is Rich (free of all wants and needs), Worthy of all praise!” (1)

Allaah ta3aalaa addresses all of us, every last one of us. Not just the believers, Not just the Prophet but Muslim, non-Muslim, white, black, woman, man…every last human on this earth.

 يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ O Mankind!

أَنْتُمُ الْفُقَرَاءُ  You are all Fuqaraa’ to Allaah. 

Al fuqaraa is plural of the word faqeer (فقير)which is from the root

fa-qaaf-ra (ف ق ر)

and faqr means poverty. Faqeer is one who has poverty and one who is poor. If we look at the root of this word, Faqrah is used for part of the spine and faaqirah is used for that which breaks the spine. So a faqeer is one who is suffering from back-breaking poverty, one who is extremely needy, so desperate for anything that could save them.

In the Qur’aan, there are two words used to describe a poor person: faqeer and miskeen.

What is the difference?

Faqeer is someone who has no wealth and no means of obtaining wealth. So they have no money in the bank and they don’t have a job. While a miskeen is one who is also poor, but they have the means, they just need a little extra to make it.

So Allaah ta3aalaa doesn’t call us masakeen (plural of miskeen) but He says: You are all Fuqaraa’you are all extremely poor. You do not own or possess a thing. And if wasn’t for Allaah ta3aalaa, you would have nothing. You are all in need of Allaah subhaanahu wa ta3aalaa, in the dunya and aakhirah. In every state of your existance: in the womb, as a baby, as a toddler, as a young person, as an old person, at the time of death, in the grave and in the hereafter.

So we are fuqaraa’. Who is Allaah?

Allaah is: الْغَنِي Al-Ghaniyy, the One who is Rich, the Independent.

Ghaniyy is from root:

ghayn-noon-ya (غ ن ي) and ghaniyy means richness. 

So Allaah is The One who is Very Rich, the One who is Self Sufficient, the One who is Free of All Wants and Needs. He needs nothing from us. Absolutely nothing. He has everything and we have nothing.

And He is: الْحَمِيد Al Hameed: The Most Praiseworthy.

Hameed is from ha-meem-daal (ح م د) and Hameed is the One who is deserving of praise, if one does hamd of Him or not. He doesn’t even need our hamd!

What lessons can we take from this ayah?

  1. Do not let the thought pass in your mind that you are benefiting Allaah 3azza wa jal in any way. Don’t be an arrogant broke person!
  2. Be humble to Allaah 3azza wa jal. Remember that Allaah subhaanahu wa ta3aalaa needs nothing from us. Why would He, Al-Ghaniyy, need something from a puny, weak, broke human like ourselves when He Possesses the Kingdom (mulk) of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them? We are nothing.
  3. Ask Allaah ta3aalaa, and He will give you. “…O My servants, all of you are hungry (needy) except for those whom I feed, therefore seek food from Me so that I may feed you. O My servants, all of you are naked (need clothes) except for those whom I provide garments, therefore seek clothing from Me so that I should clothe you. O My servants, you sin by night and by day and I am there to pardon your sins, therefore seek forgiveness from Me so that I should grant you pardon…” (2)
  4. Attribute all good to Allaah 3azza wa jal, and not to ourselves. You didn’t memorize the Qur’an yourself. You didn’t study the deen yourself. You didn’t graduate yourself. You didn’t get that job yourself. You didn’t, you didn’t, you didn’t. Allaah 3azza wa jal gave us all of these blessings, we did not will it for ourselves. Don’t take credit for something you didn’t do.
  5. Be grateful for what Allaah subhaanahu wa ta3aalaa has given you and thank Him. Do hamd of Al Hameed. How would we feel if we gave a load of cash to a homeless person who was in so much need of anything, yet they just took the money and didn’t even say thank you? We’d be angry, right? And for Allaah is the Highest Example! How can we, al fuqaraa’, receive blessing after blessing and not thank Allaah for it? He is not in need of our thanks and gratitude, Allaah subhaanahu wa ta3aalaa says in soorah Ibraheem:

  لَئِنْ شَكَرْتُمْ لَأَزِيدَنَّكُمْ ۖ وَلَئِنْ كَفَرْتُمْ إِنَّ عَذَابِي لَشَدِيدٌ

“Indeed if you are grateful and give thanks, surely I will definitely increase you, but if you are ungrateful (then know) My punishment is indeed most severe. (3)

What have we done to show Allaah subhaanahu wa ta3aalaa we are truly thankful? 

Remember: Shukr (gratitude) is by action! The Prophet salAllaahu 3alayhi wa sallam would pray qiyaam until his feet would swell, and when asked by 3Aeyshah radi-Allaahu 3anha why he still prays even though his past and future sins are forgiven, he said the famous answer:

يَا عَائِشَةُ أَفَلَا أَكُونُ عَبْدًا شَكُورًا

“O 3Aa’ishah, should I not be a thankful slave?” (4)

So we should use these blessings that Allaah has given us to do good, and not use them to disobey Him. Allaah subhaanahu wa ta3aalaa says in soorah Saba:

وَقَلِيلٌ مِنْ عِبَادِيَ الشَّكُورُ,

“But FEW of My slaves are thankful” (5)

Will you be among those few?

Or will you be an arrogant, ungrateful broke person?

Alhamdulillaah. Hamadan, katheeran, tayyiban, mubaarakan feeh.

The most perfect praise is only for Allaah, a praise that is countless, good and blessed. 

اللَّهُمَّ أَعِنِّي عَلَى ذِكْرِكَ وَشُكْرِكَ وَحُسْنِ عِبَادَتِكَ

Allaahumma a3innee 3alaa dhikrika wa shukrika wa husni 3ebaadatik.

O Allaah, help us to remember You, to thank You, and to worship You in the best way.
