Fear the Oppressed [Du’aas Against Enemy Included] (Hadith No. 2125)


Volume 3, Book 43, Number 628:
Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu):
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) sent Mu’adh to Yemen and said, “Be afraid, from the curse of the oppressed as there is no screen between his invocation and Allah.”

That simply means that if he asks Allah to destroy the oppressor in the worst way possible, Allah might be very quick to accept his dua. So be afraid!


Oh Allah! We put You in front of them, and we seek refuge in You from their evils!

“Oh Allah! We put You in front of them, and we seek refuge in You from their evils!”


Du`a – Returning Home (Hadith No. 1546)


Did you know? There’s a du`a that Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) used to make every time he would return to his hometown after a journey – be it a battle, or Hajj, or `Umrah etc.

Volume 3, Book 27, Number 23:

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu):

Whenever Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) returned from a Ghazwa, Hajj or ‘Umra, he used to say Takbir thrice at every elevation of the ground and then would say, “None has the right to be worshipped but Allah; He is One and has no partner. All the kingdoms is for Him, and all the praises are for Him, and He is Omnipotent. We are returning with repentance, worshiping, prostrating, and praising our Lord. He has kept up His promise and made His slave victorious, and He Alone defeated all the clans of (non-believers).”

Here’s the du`a in Arabic. Must memorize it!

لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له له الملك وله الحمد وهو على كل شيء قدير آيبون تائبون عابدون ساجدون لربنا حامدون صدق الله وعده ونصر عبده وهزم الأحزاب وحده

Transliteration: Laa ‘ilaaha ‘illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul-mulku, wa lahul-hamdu, wa Huwa ‘alaa kulli shay ‘in Qadeer, ‘aa’iboona, taa’iboona, ‘aabidoona, saajidoona, lirabbinaa haamidoona, sadaqallaahu wa’dahu, wa nasara ‘abdahu, wa hazamal-‘ahzaaba wahdahu.”

Sajdah of the Prophet [SAW] (Hadith No. 806)


Volume 2, Book 16, Number 806:

Narrated ‘Aisha:

Allah’s Apostle used to pray eleven Rakat at night and that was his night prayer and each of his prostrations lasted for a period enough for one of you to recite fifty verses before Allah’s Apostle raised his head. He also used to pray two Rakat (Sunna) before the (compulsory) Fajr prayer and then lie down on his right side till the Muadh-dhin came to him for the prayer.

The interesting thing is, even if I do one Sajdah in my whole Salah that long, I tell myself to feel good about it. Now reading this is sort of making me think how foolish I was. -_-

I need to take it a (big) step further.

Ah, now I know. Supplication in sajdah will make it longer.

Note: you can make special du`a in sajdah and other positions in Salah.

The majority of Maaliki and Shaafa’i fuqaha’, and some Hanbalis, are of the view that it is permissible to say du’aa’ in prayer asking for various worldly needs, which the worshipper wants to ask for and that he needs, such as if he prays to get married or for provision or success and so on.

They quoted as evidence for that the hadeeth of Ibn Mas’ood (may Allaah be pleased with him), according to which the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) taught the Sahaabah the Tashahhud, then he said at the end of it: “Then let him choose whatever supplications he wishes.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari (5876) and Muslim (402).

Ibn Abi Shaybah narrated in al-Musannaf (1/331) that al-Hasan and al-Sha’bi said:

Ask during your prayer for whatever you want. End quote.

It says in al-Mudawwanah (1/192):

Maalik said: There is nothing wrong with a man praying for all his needs in the prescribed prayers, for his needs in this world and in the Hereafter, when standing, sitting and prostrating. He said: Maalik told me that ‘Urwah ibn al-Zubayr said: I heard from him that he said: I ask Allaah for all my needs when praying, even for salt. End quote.



Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in al-Sharh al-Mumti’ (3/283):

…But the correct view is that there is nothing wrong with asking for things that have to do with worldly matters, because du’aa’ in itself is an act of worship, even if it is asking for worldly things, and man has nowhere to turn but to Allaah. The Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “The closest that a slave is to his Lord is when he is prostrating” and he said, “As for prostration, say a great deal of du’aa’ in it, because it is more likely that you will receive a response.” And according to the hadeeth of Ibn Mas’ood, when he spoke of the Tashahhud, he said: “Then let him choose whatever supplications he wishes.” A person is never turning to Allaah as fully as he is in prayer, so how can we say Do not ask Allaah, when you are praying, for anything that you need of worldly things! This is very unlikely.

So the correct view is undoubtedly that he may ask after the Tashahhud for whatever he wishes of good in this world and in the Hereafter. End quote.
