Du’a for studying and laziness

Dua for when studying something difficult

اللهم لا سهل إلا ما جعلته سهلا أنت تجعل الحزن إذا ما شئت سهلا

Allahumma la sahla illaa ma ja-’altahu sahla wa anta taj ‘alu al hazana ithaa shi’ta sahla

O Allah ! Nothing is easy except what You have made easy. If You wish, You can make the difficult easy.

Dua for laziness among other things

اَللّهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْعِجْزِ ، وَالْكَسْلِ، وَالْجُبْنِ ، وَالْهَرَمِ ، وَالْبُخْلِ ، وَأَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِنْ    
                                         عَذَابِ الْقَبْرِ، وَأَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِنْ فِتْنَةِ الْمَحْيَا وَالْمَمَاتِ.

Allâhumma innî acûdhu bika minal-ajzi wal-kasli wal-jubni wal-harami wal-bukhli, wa a’udhbika min adhabil qabri, wa a’udhubika fitnatil mahya walmamat.

O Allah, I seek refuge in You from weakness and laziness, miserliness and cowardice, anxiety and sorrow, and I seek refuge in You from the torments of grave, and I seek refuge in You from the trials and tribulations of life and death.

Question: Does supplication change the qadar?

Answer: It comes in a hadeeth that some of the people of knowledge have deemed authentic and it is, Nothing changes the qadar except supplication. However the intent behind it is that Allaah has (already) decreed for this person to supplicate and thus such and such a thing will happen for him due to it.

This is similar to the hadeeth, Whoever wishes for his lifespan to be extended and his provisions increased then let him keep good ties with his kith and kin. Yet, there still isn’t any change in the decree of Allaah. Because Allaah is the one who decreed for him to keep ties with the womb that bore him so that his life-span may be extended while so and so does not keep ties with the womb that bore him so his life-span gets cut short. All of this takes place by the decree of Allaah ‘Azza wa Jal.

And He (i.e. Allaah) decreed for this person to supplicate and therefore Allaah benefitted him by that supplication that he made and another individual does not supplicate so as a result doesn’t benefit from supplication.

Na’am (Yes).

Narrated ‘Umar radiallahu ‘anhu said:

“Whenever Allah’s Messenger – sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam – raised his hands in supplication, he did not lower them till he wiped his face with them.”

[At-Tirmidhi reported it]. It has Shawahid (supporting narrations) such as the hadith of Ibn ‘Abbas radiallahu ‘anhu reported by Abu Da’ud and others. These narrations – considered as a group – warrant it being considered a Hasan (good) hadith.

(Bulugh al-Maram, Hadeeth No. 1345, P. 488-489).

Wallaahi this is sad news. May Allah guide the Shi’a and protect Dammaj and its people.

Our brother Musa Millington may Allah preserve him on Trinimuslims mentions:

Insha Allah, we must remember the statement of the Prophet  that actions are more loved in these 10 days more than other days. And from these actions is to make du’a for your brothers.

Right now Dar Ul Hadeeth is being surrounded by the Rafidah Shi’a and they are stopping the transportation of necessities to Dar Ul Hadeeth, they have even gone as far as preventing some of the brothers from going to Hajj!!

Remember them in your du’a.

Praise be to Allaah.
Is there a du’aa’ for moving into a new house?
We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen, who answered as follows:
“Praise be to Allaah. When he enters a house or stops to camp in a spot out of doors, he should say, ‘A’oodhu bi kalimaat-Illaah it-taammaati min sharri ma khalaq (I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allaah from the evil of that which He has created)’ three times. If he says this, then nothing will harm him until he leaves that place.”
The house he is talking about is a new house which he is going to go and live in for the first time. What should he say?
“When he enters it for the first time, he should say, ‘A’oodhu bi kalimaat-Illaah it-taammaati min sharri ma khalaq.’”
Can he say, “Rabbi anzilni munzalan mubaarakan [My Lord! Cause me to land at a blessed landing-place – al-Mu’mineen 23:29 – interpretation of the meaning]”?
“This is for when one embarks on a boat or ship.”
And Allaah knows best.

Abdullah ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas said, that he heard Allaah’s Messenger saying:
“All the hearts of the offspring of Aadam are between two fingers of Ar-Rahman’s Fingers, as one heart. He turns it (in any direction) as He wills.”
Then Allaah’s Messenger said:

يا مقلب القلوب ثبت قلبي على دينك
Ya Muqallib al-Quluub, thabbit qalbi ala Deenik.
O Turner of the Hearts – keep my heart firm on Your Deen.

[Sahih Muslim – authenticated by al-Albani]

The Messenger of Allah related that Allah Said:

…if he calls upon Me, I answer him, and if he asks of Me, I will give him…

Ibn Rajab commented:

…This means that this person who is beloved and close to Allah has a special status with Allah such that if he asks Allah for something, He gives it to him, and if he seeks refuge with Allah from anything, He protects him from that thing, and if he calls upon Him, He answers him. So, he ends up becoming from those whose supplications are answered due to his honor with Allah.

And many from the righteous early generations were known to have their supplications answered.

It is related in the ‘Sahih’ that ar-Rubay’ bint an-Nadr broke a tooth of a slave. So, they offered compensation, and they refused. They asked for pardon, and they refused. The Messenger of Allah was then going to implement the rule of retaliation between them. Anas bin an-Nadr said: “The tooth of ar-Rubay’ will be broken? By the One who has sent you with the truth, her tooth will not be broken.” So, the people were pleased and took the compensation. The Messenger of Allah then said: “Indeed, from the slaves of Allah are those who, if they make an oath upon Allah, He fulfills it.

…And Ibn Abi ad-Dunya reported with his chain that an-Nu’man bin Qawfal said on the day of Uhud: “O Allah, I swear that I will be killed and enter Paradise. ” So, he was killed, and the Prophet said: “Indeed, Nu’man made an oath upon Allah, and He fulfilled that oath.

And Abu Nu’aym reported with his chain from Sa’d that ‘Abdullah bin Jahsh said on the day of Uhud: “O Lord, if I meet the enemy tomorrow, give me an adversary who is strong and harsh for me to fight for Your Sake and for him to fight me. Then, let him cut off my nose and ear so that when I meet You the next day, You Say: ‘O ‘Abdullah! Why were your nose and ear cut off?’ I will say: ‘For You and Your Messenger.’ And You will Say: ‘You have spoken the truth.’“

Sa’d said: “I saw him at the end of the day with his nose and ear hanging from a thread.

And Sa’d bin Abi Waqqas would have his supplications answered. A man lied upon him, and he said: “O Allah, if he is lying, take away his eyesight, elongate his life, and expose him to trials and tribulations. ” So, the man was stricken with all of this, as he used to walk through the streets and come into contact with the slave girls, saying: “I am an old man who is experiencing fitnah. I have been stricken with the supplication of Sa’d!

And he supplicated against a man he heard insulting ‘Ali, and immediately, a camel came and trampled him to death.

And a woman disputed with Sa’id bin Zayd over some land he owned, claiming that he had taken from her land. So, he said: “O Allah, if she is lying, take away her eyesight and kill her in her own land.” So, she became blind, and one night when she was walking in her land, she fell into a well and died.

And al-’Ala’ bin al-Hadrami was on an expedition, and those with him became very thirsty. So, he prayed and supplicated: “O Knower, O Bestower, O Most High, O Mighty! We are Your slaves, and we are fighting Your enemy for Your Sake. Give us water to drink and make ablution from, and do not allow anyone else to benefit from this water!” They walked for a bit to find a river of water flowing from the sky. They drank from it and filled their vessels. Later, some of his companions returned to where the river was to find that there was nothing there, as if there had never been any water there.

And someone complained to Anas bin Malik of a drought in a part of al-Basrah. So, he performed ablution and went out to the patch of land, prayed two units, and it then began raining on the patch of land, and the rain did not fall anywhere beyond that patch of land.

…And Abu Muslim al-Khawlani was known for having his supplications answered. Once, a gazelle passed by him, and the young boys in the area said: “Ask Allah to allow us to capture this gazelle! ” So, he supplicated, and he captured it and held it until they were able to take it from his hands.

And he once supplicated against a woman who had ruined his relationship with his wife that her eyesight be taken away. She immediately went blind, and she came to him begging. So, he had pity for her and asked Allah to return her eyesight to her, and his wife returned to her normal state with him.

And a man lied upon Mutarraf bin ‘Abdullah, and Mutarraf said: “If you are lying, I ask Allah to hasten your departure, ” and the man died on the spot.

And a Kharijite used to pass by the classes of al-Hasan al-Basri and annoy those present. When it became unbearable, al-Hasan said: “O Allah, You Know how he has harmed us. So, suffice us against him with what You Will,” and the man immediately collapsed and was carried dead to his family.

And Silah bin Ashim was on an expedition, and his camel wandered off with all of his belongings, and there was nobody else around. So, he stood and prayed, saying: “O Allah, I swear that you will return my camel and belongings,” and it walked back until it stood right in front of him.

…And Habib al-’Ajami Abu Muhammad was known for having his supplications answered. He once supplicated for a young boy who was bald, and would weep and wipe his tears over the boy’s head. The boy’s hair began growing black all over his head, and it looked better than it had before.

…And Sa’id bin Jubayr was patient upon the harm inflicted upon him by al-Hajjaj until he killed him, and he was from those whose supplication was answered. He used to have a rooster whose crowing would wake him up to pray at night. One night, it didn’t wake him up on time, and he became very distressed, saying: “What is wrong with it? May Allah cut off its voice!” It never crowed again, and his mother said: “My son, do not supplicate against anything ever again.
