Time for Dua

Posted: 27 Jamad-u-Thani 1422, 15 September 2001

We are passing through some very difficult times. There is fear, uncertainty, and concern. At times like this, more than ever we need to turn to Allah, for He alone is the Protector and Helper. Here are some duas in Arabic with translations.

Our Lord, do not make us a target of tyranny by wicked people. [Yunus: 10:85]

My Lord, help me against people who practice corruption and spread disorder.

O Allah, we make You (our defense) against their aggression and seek Your protection from their evil (designs).

O Allah, suffice me against him as You will.

Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Mightiest of His entire creation, Allah is the Mightiest of everything I fear and apprehend. I seek the protection of Allah other than Whom there is no god, the One who held the sky from falling upon the earth without his permission (His protection, I seek) from the evil of such and such servant of His, and from the evil of his armies, and followers and supporters, be they from among the jinn or human beings. O Allah! Be my Protector against their evils. Great is Your praise and mighty is Your protection and there is no god but You.

O Allah, God of Jibra’il and Mika’il and Israfeel and God of Ibrahim and Ismail and Ishaq, bless me with well-being and let no one from among Your creation succeed in overpowering me with something which I may not have the strength to ward off.

There is no god but Allah, the Forbearing, the Merciful, the sanctified Lord of the seven heavens and the Lord of the Great Throne, there is no god but You, might is Your protection, and great is Your praise, and there is no god other than You.

(These duas were taken from Radiant Prayers by Mufti Taqi Usmani. This book is available at the Albalagh Bookstore.)
