Du'a for Safety from Jahannam
Illness is a part of life and many times illness is also the cause of death. Our beloved Nabi ﷺ has taught us a very special Du’a with a very special virtue to read whenever we become ill.
لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا اللّٰهُ وَاللّٰهُ أَكْبَرْ، لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا اللّٰهُ وَحْدَهْ، لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا اللّٰهُ وَحْدَهْ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَهُ، لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا اللّٰهُ لَهُ المُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ، لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا اللّٰهُ وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللهِ
Laa ilaaha illallahu wallahu akbar, Laa ilaaha illallahu wahdahu, Laa ilaaha illallahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, Laa ilaaha illallahu lahul mulku walahul hamdu, Laa ilaaha illallahu walaa hawla walaa quwwata illa billah.
Translation: There is no deity but Allah, and Allah is the greatest. There is no deity but Allah. There is no deity but Allah alone Who has no partner. There is no deity but Allah; His is the Kingdom and for Him is All Praise. There is no deity but Allah, and there is no power (to do good) and ability (to avoid bad) except with (the Help of) Allah. (Tirmidhi)
Our beloved Nabi ﷺ said,
‘One who recites this Du’a during an illness and thereafter passes away (due to that same illness), ((the person) will not be touched by the fire (of Jahannam).’
Let’s learn this Du’a and read it for every illness. We never know which illness maybe the cause of our death and if we had read this Du’a we will be saved from Jahannam insha’allah.
