Essential supplications

14 Aug

Little things do matter and supplication is of paramount importance in Islam. It’s benefits are immense as are its virtues. It is an act of obedience to Allah. By offering supplications, we are actually carrying out Allah’s command.
Allah says In Surah Ghafir verse 60:

“And your Lord said: Supplicate to Me, I shall answer you.”
So, please do take out some time and learn them by heart, cos it won’t take much time,
that is for sure.
  • When undertaking a journey:

Subhanalla-thee sakh-khara-lana haatha wa-ma kun-na lahoo muqrineena wa inna ila Rabbina la-mun-qali-boon.

Translation: Glory be to Him (Allah) who has brought this (vehicle) under our control though we were unable to control it. Sure, we are to return to our Lord.

  • Upon awakening:

Alhamdulillah-hillathee ah-yana ba’da ma ama tana wa ilayhi nushoor.

Translation: Many thanks to Allah who gave us life after having given us death and (our) final return (on the Day of Qiyaamah (Judgement)) is to Him.

  • When entering the toilet

Allahumma in-nee a’oothu bika minal khubu-thee wal khabaa ith.

  • When leaving the toilet, recite:

Ghuf-raa naka.

  • After sneezing

Alhamdulillah! (right graphic) / Alhamdu lillahi ‘ala kull-lee ha-leen (left graphic).

Translation: Thanks and all praise be to Allah (or) Thanks and all praise be to Allah under all conditions.

  • Reply to someone who sneezes:

Yar Hamoo kall Lah.

Translation: May Allah have mercy on you.

  • Before a meal:

Bismillahi wa ‘ala baraka-tillah.

Translation: With Allah’s name and uon the blessings granted by Allah (do we eat).

  • After having a meal

Alham do lillah hilla-thee At Amana wa saquana waja ‘alana minal Muslimeen.

Translation: All praise is due to Allah who gave us food and drink and who made us Muslims.

  • After wudhu

Allahummaj ‘al-ni minat-tow-wa beena waj-alni minal muta-tah-hireen.

Translation: I testify that there is no deity except Allah; He is One and has no partner. And I testify that Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) is His servant and apostle.
