Dua: O Allah, Knower of the Unseen (Allaahumma Aalimal Ghayb…)
Ibn ul Qayyim says “Remembrance adorns the one who practises it with dignity, sweetness and radiance.”
Allahumma ‘alimal-ghaybi washshahadah
Rabba kulli shayin wamaleekah
Ashhadu an la ilaha illa ant
A‘oothu bika min sharri nafsee wamin sharrish-shaytani washirkih
Wa an aqtarifa ‘ala nafsee soo-an aw ajurrahu ila muslim.
Translation of the Meaning:
O Allah, Knower of the unseen and the seen,
Creator of the heavens and the Earth,
Lord and Sovereign of all things.
I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except You.
I take refuge in You from the evil of my soul and from the evil and shirk of the devil, and from committing wrong against my soul or bringing such upon another Muslim. [Saheeh at-Tirmidhee 3/142, as-Saheehah no. 2763, 6/622]
