Comprehensive Prophetic Supplication for the Good of This Life and The Next, and Protection from all Harm

In the Name of Allah, the Benevolent, the Merciful

The Prophetic Companions Ammar ibn Yasir (Allah be pleased with him) once led a group in prayer, and made his prayer brief. He then felt as though they were critical of him (regarding praying briefly), so he asked them, “Did I not perform its bowing and prostration fully?” They said, “Indeed, you did.”


He said to then, “I made supplication in it with a supplication that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) used to use:


Allah, by Your knowledge of the unseen and Your power over all creation, give me life as long as You know that life is best for me; and make me die when You know that death is best for me.


Allah, I ask You for reverent awe in absence and presence, and for true speech in contentment and in anger.


I ask You for blessing that isn’t exhausted, and joy of the eye that is unending. I ask You for contentment with destiny, for ease of life after death, for the joy of beholding Your Countenance, and for longing to meet You.


And I seek refuge in You from hardship that harms and tribulations that misguide.


Allah, adorn us with the with the raiment of faith, and make us of those guided and guiding.” [Related by Imam Nasa’i; sahih]


صلى عمار بن ياسر بالقوم صلاة أخفها ، فكأنهم أنكروها ! فقال : ألم أتم الركوع والسجود ؟ قالوا : بلى ، قال : أما أني دعوت فيها بدعاء ، كان النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يدعو به : اللهم بعلمك الغيب ، وقدرتك على الخلق ، أحيني ما علمت الحياة خيرا لي ، وتوفني إذا علمت الوفاة خيرا لي ، اللهم وأسألك خشيتك في الغيب والشهادة ، وكلمة الإخلاص في الرضا والغضب ، وأسألك نعيما لا ينفد ، وقرة عين لا تنقطع ، وأسألك الرضاء بالقضاء ، وبرد العيش بعد الموت ، ولذة النظر إلى وجهك ، والشوق إلى لقائك ، وأعوذبك من ضراء مضرة ، وفتنة مضلة ، اللهم زينا بزينة الإيمان ، واجعلنا هداة مهتدين
