Authentic Adhkar: Lesson 37

Sat 22 December 2018

Lesson 37: Supplications before you Sleep (Part 3) and if you wake up suddenly

  • Anas (may Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying: “When you go to bed, say: ” (Alhamdulillaahil ladhii at’a-manaa wa-saqaanaa wa-kafaanaa wa-aa-waa-naa-fa-kam mim-man laa kaafiya lahu wa-laa mu-wiy) Praise is due to Allah Who fed us, provided us drink, sufficed us and provided us with shelter, for many a people there is none to suffice and none to provide shelter.” [Sahih Muslim]
    • This dua reminds the muslim of the blessings which Allah has bestowed upon him and of the difficulties Allah has protected him from
    • We should all be grateful and thankful to Allah for all that he has given us and what he has protected us from
    • Thanking Allah for the blessings he has bestowed upon us causes them to increase further
    • Qur’an Verse: ”And (remember) when your Lord proclaimed: “If you give thanks (by accepting Faith and worshipping none but Allah), I will give you more (of My Blessings), but if you are thankless (i.e. disbelievers), verily! My Punishment is indeed severe.”” [Surah Ibraaheem (Abraham) verse 7]
    • There is a saying: when you find yourself in difficulty, be thankful to Allah for what you have
    • What does it mean “kafaanaa (sufficed us)”?
    • What does it mean “aa-waa-naa (provided us with shelter)”?
    • Qur’an verse: “And Allah has made for you in your homes an abode, and made for you out of the hides of the cattle (tents for) dwelling, which you find so light (and handy) when you travel and when you stay (in your travels), and of their wool, fur, and hair (sheep wool, camel fur, and goat hair), a furnishing and articles of convenience (e.g. carpets, blankets, etc.), a comfort for a while.” [Surah An-Nahl (The Bee) verse 80]
    • All praise be to Allah for what he has bestowed upon us, indeed we cannot even count these blessings

Authentic Adhkar: Lesson 36

Sat 15 Dec 2018

Lesson 36: Supplications before you Sleep (Part 2)

  • There are tremendous etiquettes  of going to sleep in Islam and there are many great virtues for the one who guards over this
  • Narrated Al-Barā bin `Azib (may Allah be pleased with him): The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said to me, “When you go to bed, perform ablution as you do for prayer, then lie down on your right side and say: ‘Allahumma innii aslamtu nafsii ilaika (Oh Allah I submit myself to you), wa wajjahtu wajhii ilaika (and I turn my face to You), wa fawwadtu ‘amrii ilaika (and I have entrusted my affairs to You) wa alja’tu dhahrii ilaika (and I resort to You for protection), raghbatan wa rahbatan ilaika (out of desire and fear of You), laa malja’a wa laa manjaa minka illaa ilaika (There is no place of safety or salvation from You except with You). Amantu bikitaabik al-ladhii anzalta (I believe in the Book You have revealed ) wa binabiyyika al-ladhii arsalta (and in the Prophet You have sent)’. If you should die (after reciting this) then you will die upon the fitrah (i.e., as a Muslim); so let these words be the last you say (before going to bed)” While I was memorizing it, I said, “Wa birasulika al-ladhi arsalta (in Your Apostle whom You have sent).’ The Prophet said, “No, but say: Wa binabiyyika al-ladhi arsalta (in Your Prophet whom You have sent). [Sahih al-Bukhari]
    • The importance of making wudhu before going to sleep, why is this an important etiquette?
    • Lying on your right side, why is this an etiquette? What did Ibn Qayyim say about sleeping on your left side?
    • Note: Importance of knowing the meaning of these supplications
    • There are a tremendous amount of meanings within this dua, what are they?
    • Why did the Prophet (ﷺ) correct Barā (may Allah be pleased with him)?
