"Allah is the Protector of those who have faith: from the depths of darkness He will lead them forth into light." Quran 2:257

1st Supplication

 "أَصْبَحْنَا وَأَصْبَحَ الْمُلْكُ للهِ وَالْحَمْدُ للهِ، لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحَدْهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ، ربِّ أَسْأَلُكَ خَيْرَ مَا فِي هَذَا الْيَومِ وَخَيْرَ مَا بَعْدَهُ، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا فِي هَذَا الْيَومِ وَشَرِّ مَا بَعْدَهُ، رَبِّ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْكَسَلِ، وَسُوءِ الكِبَرِ، رَبِّ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ عَذَابٍ فِي النَّارِ وَعَذَابٍ فِي الْقَبْرِ".

Translated as: "We have entered upon the morning and and the dominion belongs to Allah*, all the praise is for Allah, there is nothing worthy of worship except for Allah, He is alone having no partner, to Him belongs the  dominion and to Him belongs the priase and He is Able to do all things. My Lord, I ask you for the good that is in this day** and the good that will come after it, and I seek refuge in You from the evil in this day and the evil that will come after it, My Lord I seek refuge in You from laziness and the hardships of being old, and I seek refuge in Your from the punishment of the Hellfire and the punishment in the grave."

* In the evening you say: Amsaynaa wa'amsal-mulku lillaah: "We have entered upon the evening and the dominion belongs to Allah"

**And you say: Rabbi 'as'aluka khayra maa fee haathihil-laylati, wa khayra maa ba'dahaa, wa 'a'oothu bika min sharri maa fee haathihil-laylati wa sharri maa ba'dahaa: "My Lord, "I ask You for the good things of this night and of the nights that come after it and I seek refuge in You from the evil of this night and of the nights that come after it"

Recite this:

- Once every Morning & Evening

Wisdom/Benefit:

- The servant affirms his belief in the Oneness of Allah and Praises Him(swt).

- The servant seeks the good of the day

- The servant seeks refuge in Allah from evil, laziness, hardships of old age and from the punishment of Hell-fire and the grave.

Proof/Hadith of this dua’:

2nd Supplication

"اللَّهُمَّ بِكَ أَصْبَحْنَا، وَبِكَ أَمْسَيْنَا، وَبِكَ نَحْيَا، وَبِكَ نَمُوتُ وَإِلَيْكَ النُّشُورُ".

 

Translated as: "O Allah, by You we enter the morning and by You we enter the evening, by You we live and and by You we die, and to You is the Final Return".

Transliteration: 'Allaahumma bika 'asbahnaa, wa bika amsayna, wa bika nahyaa, wa bika namootu, wa 'ilaykan-nushoor.'

When you say this in the evening you should say: "Allaahumma bika 'amsaynaa wa bika 'asbahnaa, wa bika nahyaa, wa bika namoot, wa 'ilaykal-maseer: "O Allah, You bring us the end of the day as You bring us its beginning, You bring us life and you bring us death, and to You is our final destination."

Recite:

- Once every Morning & Evening

Wisdom/Benefit:

3rd Supplication

"اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ رَبِّي لّا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ، خَلَقْتَنِي وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ، وَأَنَا عَلَى عَهْدِكَ وَوَعْدِكَ مَا اسْتَطَعْتَ، أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا صَنَعْتَ، أَبُوءُ لَكَ بِنِعْمَتِكَ عَلَيَّ، وَأَبُوءُ بِذَنْبِي فَاغْفِر لِي فَإِنَّهُ لَا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ".

Translated as: "O Allah, You are my Lord, there is none worthy of worship but You. You created me and I am Your slave. I am upon Your covenant and Your promise to the best of my ability. I seek Your Protection from the evil that I have done. I admit to Your blessings upon me, and I admit my sins to You. So forgive me, for no-one forgive sins but You."

Transliteration: 'Allaahuma 'anta rabbee, Laa 'Ilaaha 'Illaa 'Anta, Khalaqtanee wa 'anaa 'abduka, wa 'anaa 'alaa 'ahdika wa wa'dika mas-tatatu, a'oodhu bika min sharri maa sanatu, 'aboo'u laka bini'matika 'alayaa, wa 'aboo'u bidhanbee fagfir lee, fa'innahu laa yaghfirudh-dhunooba 'illaa 'anta.'

Wisdom/Benefit:

- This is the Master Dua for Forgiveness and the reciter will be from the People of Paradise

Proof/Hadith of the Dua:

1. This dua’ is called the Master supplication of seeking forgiveness. Allah’s Messenger(sws) said about it: “Whoever recites it in the daytime with full conviction when he recites it, then dies that day before entering upon the evening he will be from the People of Paradise, and whoever recites it in the evening with full conviction when he recites it; then he dies before entering upon the morning he will be from the People of Paradise.” [Saheeh al-Buhari]

  1. Salam,

    Mashallah, thank you very much for all these supplications. May Allah reward you and your colleagues.

    It would be great if some of the above where also transliterated into arabic/english wording, so we can get the full reward inshallah when reciting; for those who do not read arabic very well as myself.

    Jazakarallah

    • JazaakhAllahkhayr Sister,

      I will add some transliteration insha'Allah.

      • Salam Sister Z

        Jazakarallah for the transliteration 🙂

        • I havent done it yet, lol.

          • lol I may have been reading previous ones and thinking they were new such as:

            **And you say: Rabbi 'as'aluka khayra maa fee haathihil-laylati, wa khayra maa ba'dahaa, wa 'a'oothu bika min sharri maa fee haathihil-laylati wa sharri maa ba'dahaa: "My Lord, "I ask You for the good things of this night and of the nights that come after it and I seek refuge in You from the evil of this night and of the nights that come after it"

            and

            When you say this in the evening you should say: "Allaahumma bika 'amsaynaa wa bika 'asbahnaa, wa bika nahyaa, wa bika namoot, wa 'ilaykal-maseer: "O Allah, You bring us the end of the day as You bring us its beginning, You bring us life and you bring us death, and to You is our final destination."

            🙂 nevermind lol

          • Oh, I had already added those ones, because in those duas, the arabic mentions only the 'morning', i.e: 'asbahna'. The evening is: 'amsayna'.

            JazaakhaAllahkhayr for reminding me though. I will attempt to add the rest insha'Allah in the next few days. I have another version that is on email - it is clearer. So I have cut out the duas and stuck them on my bedsite cabinet in my bedroom, so when I've prayed Fajr and Asr, I have easy access to them. Just try to ponder over each one, they cover almost every thought and need we have.

    Jazakarallah and good evening 🙂

    Your Sister

  3. Assalaam waalaikum,

    Please give me the complete English transliteration of supplication no. 1 (both morning and evening).

    I'd like to request you editors to make a web page of duas for success, discipline, hard work, memory boosters, conceptual understanding, perfection, etc. in exams for students like me. Will it be ready before Feb 20? Please forgive me for dropping a sudden rock of burden on you. (Excuse me for my inability to write in respectful tone)...

    Thank you!
    🙂
