Dua of the Week
Dua When Awakening –
This is another Dua to be recited when we wake up which we may not have learnt before so lets get learning and bring this dua into our lives!
اَلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي عَافَانِي فِي جَسَدِي، وَرَدَّ عَلَيَّ رُوحِي، وَأَذِنَ لِي بِذِكْرِهِ
Alhamdu’ lillaahil lathee ‘aafaanee fee jasadee, wa radda ‘alayya roohee, wa ‘athina lee bithikrihi
All praise is for Allah who restored to me my health and returned my soul and has allowed me to remember Him.
Hadhrat Abu Hurayra (RA) says that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, “Whoever sends one blessing upon me, Allah sends ten blessings upon him.”
One blessing and mercy from Allah Ta’ala is sufficient for the whole world, let alone ten blessings in return for sending durood once. What could be a greater virtue of durood that one is granted ten blessings from Allah for sending one durood? How fortunate are those elders who send one hundred and twenty five thousand duroods upon Rasulullah Sallallahu alayhi wassalam every single day, just as I have heard regarding some of the elders of my family. Rasulullah Sallallahu alayhi Wassalam said, “Whoever sends durood upon me once, Allah Ta’ala sends ten mercies upon him. It is your choice to send as little or as much as you wish.”
Read a Book on Seerah for at least 10 minutes!
