Closing Dua

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

"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.
