Making dua, setting awesome habits 5

Posted: December 6, 2009 in Ahh moments, Dua series


Alhamdulilah! all praise is due to Allah, who has bestowed upon us such goodness, alhamdulilah.

Another great dua sessions, alhamdulilah these are truly fortresses for the muslimeen!

Two things this week, I’ve been memorizing the last 10 verses of Al-Imran for Alhuda, as the prophet sal allahu sallam use to recite them in tahjjud, and subhana’Allah its so beautiful. My favorite part is when the believers say ” Our Lord, you have not created any of this in vain…” subhana’Allah there is a purpose for everything and anything that happens. See below.

Also, the dua of light! This is also alhuda dua, and subhana’Allah its wonderous…the people of the quran are truly a people of light, in that they themselves are filled with like and they only give off light/goodness to others. The dua below (can’t find in Arabic right now) is one that the Prophet sal allahu sallam use to recite after fajr salaah-while lying down on his right side, and subhana’Allah the prophet sal allahu sallam who was given glad tidings of jannah is reciting and asking for light…and what of us? Subhana’Allah.

“Oh Allah, put light in my heart, light in my hearing and
light in my sight; to my right and light to my left; light above me and light
beneath me; and light before me and light behind me…..there is more to this dua!

I’ll post it in Arabic if I can find it, but till next time, may we might be granted the ultimate/greatest light of our hearts/delights i.e jannah!

    وَعَنْ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ { أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم صَلَّى فَجَعَلَ يَقُولُ فِي صَلَاتِهِ أَوْ فِي سُجُودِهِ : اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْ فِي قَلْبِي نُورًا , وَفِي سَمْعِي نُورًا , وَفِي بَصَرِي نُورًا , وَعَنْ يَمِينِي نُورًا , وَعَنْ شِمَالِي نُورًا , وَأَمَامِي نُورًا , وَخَلْفِي نُورًا , وَفَوْقِي نُورًا , وَتَحْتِي نُورًا , وَاجْعَلْ لِي نُورًا أَوْ قَالَ : وَاجْعَلْنِي نُورًا } . مُخْتَصَرٌ مِنْ مُسْلِمٍ

    O Allah, place light in my heart, light in my tongue, light in my hearing, light in my sight, light behind me, light in front of me, light on my right, light on my left, light above me and light below me; place light in my sinew, in my flesh, in my blood, in my hair and in my skin; place light in my soul and make light abundant for me; make me light and grant me light.
    -Narrated in Muslim
