The Fifth Life

Over this winter break, we covered Jahannum and how we should seek refuge in it.

If you need the notes, please e-mail me or call me.

As for the duas we learned to seek protection, they are:

Allahumma inas’aluka ridaka wal jannah, wa na’udhu bika min sakhatika wan-nar.
Oh Allah! We ask You to be pleased with us, reward us with the Paradise and we seek Your refuge from Your anger and the punishment of the Fire.

Rabbana atina fid-dunya hasanatan wa fil ‘akhirati hasanatan waqina ‘adhaban-nar

Give us good in this world and good in the hereafter, and protect us from the punishment of the fire.

And after Fajr, recite 7 times:

Allahumma Ajirna min-an-naar.

O Allah, protect us from the fire.

Fourth Dua

Allahumma inni asaluka min fujatil-khayr wa a’udhu bika min fujatish-sharr

“O Allah, I ask you for sudden good and seek your protection from sudden evil.”

Third Dua

This was reported in a Hadith:

اَللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ عِلْمًا نَافِعًا , وَ رِزْقًا طَيَّبًا , وَ عَمَلاً مُتَقَبَّل

Allahumma inni as’aluka ‘Ilman naafiyan, wa rizqan tayyiban, wa ‘amalan mutaqabbalan

O Allah! I ask You for knowledge that is of benefit, a good provision and deeds that will be accepted.

[Note: I think I misspoke- see  the 1st     و ]

Second Dua

This dua was said by Musa (alayhis salam) on his way to Madyan:

رَبِّ إِنِّي لِمَا أَنزَلْتَ إِلَيَّ مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَقِيرٌ

Rabbi inni lima anzalta illayya min khairen faqeer. (O my Lord! truly I am in (desperate) need of any good that You do give me!”

Mentioned in Surah Qasas, verse 24

First Dua we Learned

اللهم أعني على ذكرك, وشكرك, وحسن عبادت

Allahumma a’inee ‘ala dhikrika, wa shukrika, wa husni ibadatik.

Mu`adh ibn Jabal (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) held my hand and said, “O Mu`adh, By Allah, I love you and advise you not to miss supplicating after every Salat (prayer) saying: `Allahumma a`inni `ala dhikrika wa shukrika, wa husni `ibadatika,’ (O Allah, help me remember You, expressing gratitude to You and worship You in the best manner)”.

[Abu Dawud and An-Nasa’i].

In addition to saying “Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon” upon hearing of a Muslim’s death, it is also praiseworthy to say:

Allahummaj al-kitabahu fi illiyiin waktubhu ‘inndaka minal muhsinin wakhlufhu fi ahlihi fil ghabirin waghfirlana walaghu ya Rabbal’alamin.

‘Oh Allah place his record in illiyin, record him as a man of excellence (muhsinin), provide a successor for him in caring for his family in the ephemeral world, and forgive us and him, oh Lord of the Worlds’.

When burying the dead and placing three handfuls of dirt upon the body it is recommended to say:
1st handful: Minha khalaqnaakum (from it We created you)

2nd handful:Wa fiiha nu’iiydukum (and in it We will return you)

3rd handful: Wa minha nukhrijukum taa ra ta ukhraa (and from it shall We bring you forth another time).

This is from Surah TaHa 20:55.

Shaykh Abdal Karim mentioned these, they are not written in the book.
