Supplications of the Prophet
Remembrance of Allah at Both Ends
of the Day (21)
Abu Bakr Assiddeek
said: The Messenger of Allah
said: "Say in the morning and in the evening: 'Allãhumma
`ãlim 'al-ghaybi wash-shahãdeti, fatiras-samãwãti
wal 'ardhi, rabba kulli shay'in wa maleekahu, 'ashhadu
'an lã 'ilãha 'illã 'anta, 'a`outhu
bika min sharri nafsee, wa sharrish-shaytãni
in one narration the following addition: [wa 'an
'aqtarifa `alã nafsee soo'an, 'aw 'ajurrahu 'ilã
it in the morning, and in the evening, and when you
take to your bed".
O' my 'ilãh Knower of the hidden, and the visible;
Creator of the Heavens and the Earth; Sustainer, and
Master of everything; I testify that there is no 'ilãh
save Thee, and I seek Thy protection from the evil
of my self, and the evil of the shaytãn and
his association [with Thee]. Note: this can be a reference
to the association, as being his; or a reference to
his instigation of association with Allah.
And [I also seek refuge in You] that I bring harm
upon myself, or drag it upon another Muslim.
Reported by At-Tirmithi who said it was comely-sound.
Al-Albãni agreed, and included it in The
Authentic of Good Sayings as #21.
