  • LEARN A  DUA

Since there are still a few nights left in Ramadan, we choose to review the following Dua:


Night of Qadr, (originally presented Halaqa #8)


Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her, said: I asked the Messenger of Allah: 'O Messenger of Allah, if I know what night is the night of Qadr, what should I say during it?' He said:


اَللَّهُمَّ اِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ ، تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي
      Allahumma innaka ‘affuwwun tuhibbul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘anni’


O Allah You are The One Who forgives greatly, and loves to forgive, so forgive me. [at Tirmidhi]


Grade : Sahih (Darussalam)
Reference : Sunan Ibn Majah 3850
In-book reference : Book 34, Hadith 24
English translation : Vol. 5, Book 34, Hadith 3850

  • VISITING THE SICK
Last year on Nov 27th, 2014, a few members of Amanah Sisters visited a sister at Farooq 
Masjid who was dealing with recurrent cancer. We have learned recently that the sister has 
returned to Allah.  We ask Allah, the Most Merciful, to have mercy on her soul and grant 
her entrance into Paradise 
Ameen.

  • CLOSING DUA
For the expiation of sins, said at the conclusion of a sitting or gathering
To listen to this dua click here


196 - "How perfect You are O Allah, and I praise You. I bear witness that None 
has the right to be worshipped except You. I seek Your forgiveness and turn 
to You in repentance."


سُبْحـانَكَ اللّهُـمَّ وَبِحَمدِك، أَشْهَـدُ أَنْ لا إِلهَ إِلاّ أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتوبُ إِلَـيْك
Subhânaka l-lâhumma wa bi-hamdika. Ash-hadu an lâ ilâha illâ
anta, astaghfiruka wa atûbu ilayka.


If any of this information was good and true, know that it comes from Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala.  
If there are mistakes we ask for Allah’s Forgiveness and Mercy.
