DUA AFTER COMPLETION OF THE QUR’AN

All praise is due only to Allah, the Most High. Peace and blessings of Allah be upon His beloved messenger Muhammad, his family and all his companions. Ameen!

Allah is He Who sent down the clear Criterion (Al-Qur’an) to His servant Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) in order to make him a warner to the worlds. He who sent His noble messenger to the two mighty creations of jinn and mankind to give glad tidings and warnings; and we are - to this truth - from among those who bear witness.

Now I call You by Your beautiful names: 99 Names of Allah

Our Lord, forgive us our sins and anything we may have done that transgressed our duty. Establish our feet firmly, and help us against those that resist Faith.

Our Lord, indeed whoever You admit to the Fire - You have disgraced him, and for the unjust wrongdoers there are no helpers. Our Lord, indeed we have heard a caller calling to faith, [saying], 'Believe in your Lord,' and we have believed. Our Lord, so forgive us our sins and remove from us our misdeeds and cause us to die with the righteous. Our Lord, and grant us what You promised us through Your messengers and do not disgrace us on the Day of Resurrection. Indeed, You do not fail in [Your] promise.

O Allah! Give my heart and soul (nafs) its piety; and purify it, for you are the best who can purify it. You are its protector and guardian.

O Allah! Make me one who continually remembers You, who is continually grateful to You, who continually fears You, who continually obeys You, continually praying and returning to You. My Lord, accept my repentance, remove my offense, respond to my supplication, establish my evidence, guide my heart, direct my tongue and eliminate resentment and hatred from my breast. O Allah, inspire me to sensible conduct and protect me from the evil of my soul.

O Allah, I hope for Your mercy, so leave me not to myself for even the duration of the wink of an eye. And amend for me all of my affairs. There is no god but You. O Allah, make sufficient for me what You have permitted for me so I may avoid what You have prohibited; and make me self-sufficient by Your favour so I may need no one else but You.

O Allah! I seek refuge in Your approval and pleasure from Your anger; and in Your pardon from Your punishment. I seek refuge in You from You. I cannot adequately praise You; You are as You have praised Yourself.

O Allah! You created my soul and it is You who will take it; to You belongs its death and its life. O Allah, if You should keep it alive then safeguard it, and if You should cause it to die then forgive it. O Allah, I ask You for freedom from all evil. O Allah! Make the best of my days the Day when I meet You; the best of my life the last of it and the best of my deeds the final ones.

Our Lord, forgive us and our brethren who came before us into the faith, and leave not, in our hearts, ill feeling against those who have believed. Our Lord, You are indeed full of kindness, most merciful.

O Allah, to You we lovingly submit; and in You we believe; and upon You do we rely. To You we turn (in repentance), and by You we argue (and advocate). Forgive us for what we have sent forth (in deeds) and for what we have held back; for what we have made known, and for what we have hidden; and for (our deeds) which You have more knowledge of than we ourselves.

O Allah, be compassionate with us, for You are the One who shows us mercy. Do not punish us for our sins, for You are the Powerful over us. Be gracious and kind to us, Our Lord, for what has come to pass in our time and place; and (we ask You, O Allah) to conclude our lives for us with a beautiful and joyful ending.

Exalted is Your Lord, the Lord of Might and Honour, above what they describe; and praise be on the messengers (of God); and all praise is due to Allah, the Lord and Cherisher of the worlds.

Send peace and blessings, O Allah, on our master Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam), and upon his blessed family and noble companions. Ameen. Yaa Rabbal Aalameen!
