Revive a Sunnah: Du'a of Forgiveness in Tashahhud


"The Messenger of Allah (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) entered the masjid and there was a man who was finishing his salah and was reciting the tashahhud. (In the tashahhud [and before tasleem]), he recited:

اللَّهمَّ إنِّي أسألُكَ يا اللَّهُ الأحدُ الصَّمدُ الَّذي لم يلِد ولم يولَد ولم يكن لهُ كُفوًا أحدٌ أن تغفرَ لي ذنوبي إنَّكَ أنتَ الغفورُ الرَّحيمُ

"Allahumma inni as'aluka ya Allahu al-Ahadus Samad, Alladhi lam yalid wa lam yulad, wa lamya kunlahu kufuwan ahad, an-taghfirali dhunoobi, innaka antal-Ghafoorur-Raheem"

"O Allah, I ask of You, O Allah, as You are the One, the Only, the Self-Sufficient Master, Who begets not nor was He begotten, and there is None equal or comparable to Him, forgive me my sins, for You are the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."

The Messenger of Allah (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) (upon hearing his du'a) said (thrice), "He has been forgiven, he has been forgiven, has been forgiven."

[Sunan Abi Daw'ud, 985' An-Nasaa'i, 1301 and others. Al-Albani said it was saheeh upon the condition of Imam Muslim (Sifatus-Salah, 3/1015)]


There are numerous du'a that people use in their tashahhud. Here we have a most beautiful du'a, which the Prophet (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) himself profoundly vouched for (the person he heard reading it). It thus comes highly recommended we do the same, or at least alternate between this and other established du'a we may know.

Revive a Sunnah: Prostration of Gratitude - Sujood ash-Shukr


Abu Bakra (radi Allahu anhu) narrated: When happiness about something reached the Prophet (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) or good news, He (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) would prostrate to Allah to show thankfulness.”

Collected by Abu Dawud, 2776; Al-Albani classed it Saheeh.


1. Ibn Al-Qayyim said, “It’s from the guidance of the Prophet (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) to offer a prostration of thanks to Allah whenever a blessing is granted or a trial and affliction is lifted. [Zaad al Maad, 1/270]

2. The four Imams considered Sujood ash-Shukr as being Sunnah.

- Abu Bakr As-Siddiq (radi Allahu anhu) prostrated when Musayleemah the liar was killed.

- Ka’b ibn Malik (radi Allahu anhu) prostrated when Allah forgave him.

3. Ibn Taymiyyah said, Purification isn’t a condition to offer Sujudus Shukr. This is derived from the verse about Firawn’s magicians who prostrated after believing in Allah. They didn’t have Wudu prior to their belief. Here we understand that prostration is what Allah loves and is pleased with. Legislation for those before us is legislation for us as long as there’s no contradiction between the two.

4. A person can offer Sujood ash-Shukr whether standing or not.

5. Takbeer: saying “Allahu Akbar” isn’t mentioned that the Prophet (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) did it before prostrating.

6. There is no specific Dhikr or supplication for Sujood ash-Shukr. The person should thank Allah, ask forgiveness, and make du'a while prostrating.


Taken from "Sujood ash-Shukr , Its description and verdicts."

Revive a Sunnah

In the name of Allah
Revive a Sunnah: Receive a good deed for every believing man and woman

Shaykh Abdur Razzaq:

The statement of the Prophet (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam):

Whoever seeks forgiveness for the male and female Muslims, he will receive for himself a good deed for each and every one of them.


Look! Whoever seeks forgiveness for the male Muslims and the female Muslims, he will receive for himself a good deed for each and every one of them. Do you know how many good deeds you will receive if you say in your supplication?:

اللَّهُمَّ اغفِر لِلْمُسْلِمِينَ والْمُسْلِمَاتِ وَالمُؤمِنِينَ وَالمُؤمِنَاتِ، الأَحيَاءِ مِنهُم وَالأَموَاتِ

O Allah, forgive the male and female Muslims, and the male and female believers, the living and the deceased.

A phrase which is not even one line; how many good deeds will you receive? Count from Adam until Allah inherits the earth and all those upon it. You will receive a good deed for every Muslim; millions of good deeds. Then you supplicate for them to have guidance, firmness, assistance, success, and safety from trials and tribulations. If this supplication comes from your heart this is proof of the soundness of your heart and conscience for the welfare of your Muslim brother.

Translator’s note: Below is another wording of the Hadith which has been declared Hassan by Shaykh Al Albani

‘Whoever seeks forgiveness for the believing men and believing women, Allah writes a good deed for him for every believing man and woman.’
(Collected by At Tabarani declared Hassan by Al Albani)

Revive a Sunnah: Response to Fighting or Abuse When Fasting


Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Messenger (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said, “Fasting is a shield (or a screen or a shelter). So, the person observing fasting should avoid sexual relation with his wife and should not behave foolishly and impudently, and if somebody fights with him or abuses him, he should tell him twice, ‘I am fasting.” The Prophet (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) added, “By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, the smell coming out from the mouth of a fasting person is better in the sight of Allah than the smell of musk. (Allah says about the fasting person), ‘He has left his food, drink and desires for My sake. The fast is for Me. So I will reward (the fasting person) for it and the reward of good deeds is multiplied ten times.”
[Bukhari]

Revive a Sunnah: Dua When Breaking Fast at Someone’s Home


Narrated Anas ibn Malik, The Prophet (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) came to visit Sa’d ibn Ubaydah, and he brought bread and olive oil, and he ate (them). Then the Prophet (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said:


أَفْطَرَ عِنْدَكُمُ الصَّائِمُونَ وَأَكَلَ طَعَامَكُمُ الأَبْرَارُ وَصَلَّتْ عَلَيْكُمُ الْمَلاَئِكَةُ

afṭara ‛indakum-uṣ–ṣaa’imoona wa akala ṭa‛aamakum-ul-abraaru, wa ṣallat ‛alaykum-ul-malaa’ikah


May the fasting break their fast with you, and the pious eat your food, and the angels pray for blessing on you.


[ Sunan Abi Dawud 3854]
