I wanted to share this video to you all like how it was shared to me (the full version is actually 21 minutes long). I found it very beneficial and never realised the importance and longetivity this duah held. I always thought that it was for your immediate family/offspring…but if made with the right intention, then it could serve the whole of your generation and generations to come way after you have gone. Allahu Akbar.
To get an idea of what I am trying to say here…lets take a look at Prophet Ibrahim (as) when he left Hajar and Ismail in the Arabian desert with nothing but a handful of dates and some water. When he left them, Ibrahim (as) made a duah that was so powerful that if you read up on his life and the offsprings his immediate offspring bore you would be amazed. The duah he made was [found in surah baqarah verse 128-129]:
Our Lord, and make us Muslims [in submission] to You and from our descendants a Muslim nation [in submission] to You. And show us our rites and accept our repentance. Indeed, You are the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful. [2:128]
Our Lord, and send among them a messenger from themselves who will recite to them Your verses and teach them the Book and wisdom and purify them. Indeed, You are the Exalted in Might, the Wise.” [2:129]
Allah (SWT) answered Prophet Ibrahim’s supplication by sending the Messenger Muhammad (SAW) and revealing to him the Quran which contains full knowledge of the Islamic laws, jurisprudence and wisdom.
The Duah below is what the Ustadh will recite and talk about. Please spare 7 mins of your time to go through this and learn the Duah so it might benefit you and your generation. Ameen.
“Rabbana hab lana min azwajina wa dhuriyyatina qurrata A’yunin waj’alna lil-muttaqina imama.”
“Our Lord! grant us in our mates and offspring the joy of our eyes and make us patterns for those who guard against evil.” (25:74)
Assalamu’alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu.
I pray this post benefits us all.
As you would have noticed on the timer on the right hand side on the bottom end of the page there is a countdown of when Ramadan will be revisting us once again. It goes without saying…fortunate are those whom Allah will bless to see it again, for there have been those whom we knew who have passed away before last Ramadan and those whom we know who might not make it this year…including ourself. And we ask Allah to only give us what is Khayr. Ameen.
[Ramadan – Time to Recharge]
Ramadan is a special occasion no one can deny that…but subhanallah we always seem to commit the same old mistakes year in year out..its almost like a horrible nightmare a day or two before Ramadan we try and cram our brains with as much reading and listening to lectures that by the time Ramadan begins we are still trying to remember the virtues behind Ramadan and what we should and shouldnt do! Subhanallah!
However, I believe this should stop and we should wake up now and do something about it, since we have 5 months until that blessed month, lets practice what we know now, start by fasting mondays and thursdays…start listening to lectures about the importance of some of the days during Ramadan…also read up on how to conserve your energy so that you dont burn out by day 20 and miss the last 10 days due to fatigue and pure lathargy!
The Sahaba’s would train 6 months before Ramadan even began…so we have time inshallah.
An excellent audio I would like to recommend which delves right into the what,where and when of Ramadan…this Shaykh is excellent at presenting Ramadan in the way he did…..makes it very easy to comprehend and he also has Q&A which is of great help as some of the questions you might have in your head as you are listening DO pop up and get answered…
So here you go..May you benefit. Ameen
Purify your intention and plan way ahead.
