Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was constant in remembering and supplicating Allah Almighty. He would supplicate Him in every situation and in all circumstances and he used to teach his companions to do so because remembering Allah means linking and connecting to Him. There are so many supplications invoked by Prophet Muhammad, but here, we selected some beautiful ones:
1- “O Allah grant me Your love and the love of those whose love will benefit me with You. O Allah, whatever you have provided me of that which I love, then make it strength for me for that which You love. O Allah, and what you have kept from me of that which I love, then make it for me a period of rest in that which You love.
(Allahumma rzuqni ḥubbuka, wa ḥubba man yanfa`uni ḥubbuhu `indak. Allahumma ma razaqtani mimma uḥibbu faj’alhu quwwatan li fima tuḥibb. Allahumma wa ma zawaita `anni mimma uḥibbu faj’alhu faraghan li fima tuḥibb). “ (Tirmidhi)
2- Anas said:
“The supplication that the Prophet made very frequently is this:
“O Allah, grant us the good in this world and the good in the Hereafter and save us from the torment of Hell-Fire.” (Muslim)
(Allahumma atina fi dunya hasanatan wa fil akhirati hasanatan wa qina ‘adhaba annar.)
3- Narrated Sa`d bin Abi Waqqas:
The Prophet (peace be upon him) used to teach us these words as he used to teach us the Book (Quran):
“O Allah! I seek refuge with You from miserliness, and seek refuge with You from cowardice, and seek refuge with You from being brought back to (senile) geriatric old age, and seek refuge with You from the affliction of the world and from the punishment in the Hereafter.” (Bukhari)
“Allahumma inni a’oodhu bika min-al-bukhl wa a’oodhu bika min-al jubn, wa a’oodhu bika min an noradda ila ardhali al omr, wa a’oodhu bika min fitnati dunya, wa ‘adhabi-l Qabr.”
4- “O Allah! Indeed I, I ask of You, guidance, piety and chastity and to be free of depending upon anyone (except You)” (Muslim)
Allahumma inni as’alukal l-huda wattuqa wal ‘afafa wal ghina.
5- “O Allah! Forgive all my sins, whether few or more, the first and the last, the apparent and the hidden.” (Muslim)
Allahumma ighfirli dhambi kullahu diqqahu wa jillahu wa awwalahu wa akhirahu wa ‘alaniyatahu wa sirrahu.
6- “O Allah! The One Who turns the hearts, turn my heart towards Your obedience.” (Muslim)
Ya musarrifa-l quloobi sarrif qalbi ala ta’atik.
7- “O Allah! Benefit me through what You teach me and teach me what is beneficial for me and increase me in knowledge.” (Ibn Majah)
Allahumm anfa’ni bima ‘allamtani wa ‘allimni ma yanfa’ni wa zidni ‘ilma.
8- “Allahumma inni a’udhu bika min zawali ni’matika, wa tahawwuli ‘afiyatika, wa fuja’ati niqmatika, wa jami’i sakhatika“
(O Allah! I seek refuge in You against the declining of Your Favours, passing of safety, the suddenness of Your punishment and all that which displeases You).
9- Ibn Mas’ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
“Allahumma inni as’aluka mujibati rahmatika, wa ‘aza’ima maghfiratika, was-salamata min kulli ithmin, wal-ghanimata min kulli birrin, wal-fawza bil- jannati, wannajata mina-nar.”
“La ilaha illallahul-Azimul-Halim. La ilaha illallahu Rabbul-‘Arshil-‘Azim. La ilaha illallahu Rabbus-samawati, wa Rabbul-ardi, wa Rabbul-‘Arshil- Karim.”
