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
