Dua at the end of a gathering – 3

At the end of a gathering, one should recite the following dua:

سُبْحَانَكَ اللَّهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ عَمِلْتُ سُوءًا وَظَلَمْتُ نَفْسِي فَاغْفِرْ لِي فَإِنَّهُ لَا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ

Glory be to You, O Allah Ta‘ala, with all Your praise! I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except You, I seek Your forgiveness and turn to You in repentance. I have committed evil and I have oppressed myself (through committing sins), so forgive me as no one can forgive sins besides You.

عن رافع بن خديج ، قال: كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إذا اجتمع إليه أصحابه فأراد أن ينهض قال: سبحانك اللهم وبحمدك ، أشهد أن لا إله إلا أنت ، أستغفرك وأتوب إليك ، عملت سوءا ، وظلمت نفسي ، فاغفر لي ، فإنه لا يغفر الذنوب إلا أنت فقلنا: يا رسول الله هذه كلمات أحدثتهن قال: أجل جاءني جبريل ، فقال لي: يا محمد ، هن كفارة المجالس (المستدرك على الصحيحين للحاكم، الرقم: 2024)

Hazrat Raafi bin Khadeej (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would recite the following dua when he intended standing up from a gathering wherein the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) were present with him.

سُبْحَانَكَ اللَّهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ عَمِلْتُ سُوءًا وَظَلَمْتُ نَفْسِي فَاغْفِرْ لِي فَإِنَّهُ لَا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ

Hazrat Raafi bin Khadeej (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) further says, “We asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), ‘O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! You have mentioned these words (which you did not mention previously).’ Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, ‘Yes, Hazrat Jibreel (alaihis salaam) came to me and said that these words are an atonement for (the futile speech, etc. which may have occurred during) the gathering.’”
