Making Comprehensive Du’a



From Aisha RadhiAllaahu anha who said: The Prophet ﷺ entered the home with a need while I was praying with a need (for me), but I took too long a time (praying). The Prophet ﷺ said: “O Aisha, you should make a broad and comprehensive du’a”. When I finished the prayer I said, “O Messenger of Allah, what is a broad and comprehensive du’a?” The Prophet said, say: 

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ مِنَ الْخَيْرِ كُلِّهِ، عَاجِلِهِ وَآجِلِهِ، مَا عَلِمْتُ مِنْهُ وَمَا لَمْ أَعْلَمْ. وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الشَّرِّ كُلِّهِ عَاجِلِهِ وَآجِلِهِ، مَا عَلِمْتُ مِنْهُ وَمَا لَمْ أَعْلَمُ. وَأَسْأَلُكَ الْجَنَّةَ وَمَا قَرَّبَ إِلَيْهَا مِنْ قَوْلٍ أَوْ عَمَلٍ، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ النَّارِ وَمَا قَرَّبَ إِلَيْهَا مِنْ قَوْلٍ أَوْ عَمَلٍ. وَأَسْأَلُكَ مِمَّا سَأَلَكَ بِهِ مُحَمَّدٌ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِمَّا تَعَوَّذَ مِنْهُ مُحَمَّدٌ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، وَمَا قَضَيْتَ لِي مِنْ قَضَاءٍ فَاجْعَلْ عَاقِبَتَهُ رُشْدًا

‘Allahumma, innee asaluka min al-khayri kullihee, ‘aajilihee wa aajilihee, ma ‘alimtu minhu wa ma lam a’lam. Wa a’oothu bika min ash-shari kullihee, ‘aajilihee wa aajilihee, ma ‘alimtu minhu wa ma lam a’lam. Wa asaluka al-janna wa ma qarraba ilayhaa min qawlin aw ‘amal, wa a’oothu bika min an-naari wa ma qarraba ilayhaa min qawlin aw ‘amal. Wa asaluka mimmaa salaka bihi Muhammad sallallahu ‘alayhi wa salam wa a’oothu bika mimmaa ta’awwatha minhu Muhammad sallallahu ‘alayhi wa salam. Wa ma qadhayta lee min qhadhaa-in faj’al ‘aaqibatahu rashadaa’

“O Allah, I ask You from all that is good in the present and in the future, that which I know and that which I do not know. I seek refuge in You from all that is evil in the present and in the future, that which I know and that which I do not know. I ask You for Paradise and the words or deeds that bring me closer to it, and I seek refuge in you from the Hell fire and the words or deeds that bring me closer to it. I ask you from that which Muhammad ﷺ asked you, and I seek refuge in you from that which Muhammad ﷺ sought refuge from. Whatever you decree for me, then make it result in guidance.”

[Collected by Bukhari in al-Adab al-Mufrad 639 & authenticated by Albaani in Silsilah al-Saheehah 1542]

عَنْ عَائِشَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهَا قَالَتْ: دَخَلَ عَلَيَّ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَأَنَا أُصَلِّي، وَلَهُ حَاجَةٌ، فَأَبْطَأْتُ عَلَيْهِ، قَالَ: «يَا عَائِشَةُ، عَلَيْكِ بِجُمَلِ الدُّعَاءِ وَجَوَامِعِهِ» ، فَلَمَّا انْصَرَفْتُ قُلْتُ: يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ، وَمَا جُمَلُ الدُّعَاءِ وَجَوَامِعُهُ؟ قَالَ: “ قُولِي: اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ مِنَ الْخَيْرِ كُلِّهِ، عَاجِلِهِ وَآجِلِهِ، مَا عَلِمْتُ مِنْهُ وَمَا لَمْ أَعْلَمْ. وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الشَّرِّ كُلِّهِ عَاجِلِهِ وَآجِلِهِ، مَا عَلِمْتُ مِنْهُ وَمَا لَمْ أَعْلَمُ. وَأَسْأَلُكَ الْجَنَّةَ وَمَا قَرَّبَ إِلَيْهَا مِنْ قَوْلٍ أَوْ عَمَلٍ، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ النَّارِ وَمَا قَرَّبَ إِلَيْهَا مِنْ قَوْلٍ أَوْ عَمَلٍ. وَأَسْأَلُكَ مِمَّا سَأَلَكَ بِهِ مُحَمَّدٌ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِمَّا تَعَوَّذَ مِنْهُ مُحَمَّدٌ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، وَمَا قَضَيْتَ لِي مِنْ قَضَاءٍ فَاجْعَلْ عَاقِبَتَهُ رُشْدًا

The Translation:“My Lord, aid me and do not aid against me, and grant me victory and do not grant victory over me, plot for me and do not plot against me, guide me and facilitate guidance for me, grant me victory over those who transgress against me. My Lord, make me ever-grateful to You, ever-remembering of You, ever-fearful of You, ever-obedient to You, ever-humble to You, oft-turning and returning to You. My Lord, accept my repentance, wash my sin, answer my call, make firm my proof, make firm my tongue, guide my heart, and remove the treachery of my chest”
