حَسْبِيَ اللهُ لَآ إِلَهَ إِلَّا هُوَ عَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ وَهُوَ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ

Translated as: "Allah is sufficient for me. There is none worthy of worship, but Him. I have placed my trust in Him and He is the Lord of the Majestic Throne."

Transliteration:'Hasbiyallaahu laa 'ilaaha 'illaahuwa 'alayhi tawakkaltu, wa huwa rabbul-arshil-adheem.'

Recite this:

- Seven times Every Morning and Evening

Wisdoms/Benefits:

- Acknowledging one's complete reliance on Allah (tawakkul), whilst maintaining and seeking the means to achieve.

- Enourages one to proceed in doing good action without fearing or dreading anyone but Allah.

- Allah will love him and suffice him in whatever he is trying to achieve

- Challenge: Take action but do not rely on it. Place your trust fully on Allah

Proof/Hadith:

1. Abu Addarda(ra) said: “Whoever recited this dua 7 times in the morning and in the evening, Allah will suffice him anything that concerns him.”

[It was collected by Ibn Assuni, Abu Dawood. The hadith of Abu Dawood is Mawqoof. Ibn Baaz, Shu’aib and AbdelKader Arnaout classified its isnaad as saheeh]. NB: Hadith Mawqoof: Statement made by a Sahaabi. Hadith Marfou: Statement made by Rasool(sws). Mawqoof is as authentic as Marfou as a Sahaabi would only make such a statement if he heard if from Rasul(sws)

2. Ibn Abbas(ra) said: “The dua (as above) was the last word of Ibrahim(as) after he was thrown in the fire, and it was recited by Muhammed(sws) when people told them (the hypocrites) “Verily the people are gathering against you, so fear them”. [Bukhari]

Aban was afflicted by some paralysis and when a man who heard the tradition began to look at him, he said to him: Why are you looking at me? I swear by Allah, I did not tell a lie about Othman, nor did Othman tell lie about the Prophet(sws), but that day when I was afflicted by it, I became angry and forgot to say them.”

    nadia

  2. Hi i secretly got married to a man last year and i am expecting his baby.the problem is he has not told his family yet and i told mine.he promised he will tell his family but now he is even ignoring my calls(he lives in europe and i live in africa,his family lives in africa too) what should i do?

    • Nadya, please log in and write your question as a separate post, and we'll try to advice you. My short answer to you is that you should go with your family to see his family, and inform them of the situation. Maybe they can force him to do the right thing, or at least provide financial support.

      Wael
