Duaa after Azaan – 2

One should recite the following Duaa after azaan:

أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَّ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ وَأَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ رَضِيتُ باللهِ رَبًّا وَبِمُحَمَّدٍ رَسُولاً وَبِالْإِسْلَامِ دِينًا

I bear testimony that there is no god except Allah who is alone and there is no partner for Him. And Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is His servant and messenger. I am pleased with Allah as my lord, Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) as a messenger and Islam as my religion.

N.B. This du`aa should be recited after the azaan and after the mu’azzin calls out the shahaadatain.

عن سعد بن أبي وقاص قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أنه قال : من قال حين يسمع المؤذن أشهد أن لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له وأن محمدا عبده ورسوله رضيت بالله ربا وبمحمد رسولا وبالإسلام دينا غفر له ذنبه .(مسلم رقم 386)

Hadhrat Sa’d bin Abi Waqqaas (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Whoever recites the following du`aa at the time of the azaan his (minor) sins will be forgiven.”

أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَّ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ وَأَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ رَضِيتُ باللهِ رَبًّا وَبِمُحَمَّدٍ رَسُولاً وَبِالْإِسْلَامِ دِينًا

Inculcating True Sifaat (Qualities)

Hazrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee (Daamat Barakaatuhu) mentioned:

The criteria by Allah Ta‘ala is sifaat and the beautiful qualities of Islam. Food prepared with quality fetches a great price, but if there is no quality in it then nobody will want to even pay for it. Our values have become so corrupt nowadays. If someone excels in stupidity, in lahw and la‘ib (sports), people are prepared to pay millions for him. So one can imagine if one excels in things that have worth in the sight of Allah Ta‘ala then what will Allah Ta‘ala give for him excelling in that? People have limitations, whereas Allah Ta‘ala has no limitation in His treasures. What Allah Ta‘ala wants to see is the sifaat and the beautiful qualities of Islam in us.

Showing Good to Others and Assisting those in Difficulty

وعن أنس رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم قال الدال على الخير كفاعله والله يحب إغاثة اللهفان رواه البزار من رواية زياد بن عبد الله النميري وقد وثق وله شواهد (الترغيب والترهيب 1/162)

Hazrat Anas (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “The one who shows a person the way to acquire good, he will receive the reward (of the good) just as the one who carries out the good receives reward. And Allah Ta’ala loves the one who assists people who are in hardship and difficulty.”
