supplication said after the last tashahhud and before salam

allahumma innee aaaoothu bika min aaathabil-qabr, wamin aaathabi jahannam, wamin fitnatil-mahya walmamat, wamin shari fitnatil-maseehid-dajjal.

‘o allah, i take refuge in you from the punishment of the grave, from the torment of the fire, from the trials and tribulations of life and death and from the evil affliction of al-maseeh ad-dajjal.’

al-maseeh ad-dajjal: among the great signs of the last hour and the greatest trials to befall mankind, which every prophet has warned about.  most of mankind will follow him. he will appear from asbahan, iran at the time when the muslims will conquer constantinople.  he will be given special powers and will make the truth seem false and vice versa.  he will claim to be righteous and then he will claim prophethood and finally, divinity.  from his features is that he will be blind in his right eye which is a definite proof that contradicts his claim to be allah as it is a sign of imperfection.  the word kafir will be written between his eyes which every believer, literate or illiterate will recognise.

 

allahumma innee aaaoothu bika min aaathabil-qabr, wa-aaaoothu bika min fitnatil-maseehid-dajjal, wa-aaaoothu bika min fitnatil-mahya walmamat. allahumma innee aaaoothu bika minal-ma/thami walmaghram.

‘o allah, i take refuge in you from the punishment of the grave, and i take refuge in you from the temptation and trial of al-maseeh ad-dajjal, and i take refuge in you from the trials and tribulations of life and death.  o allah, i take refuge in you from sin and debt.’

 

 

allahumma innee thalamtu nafsee thulman katheeran wala yaghfiruth-thunooba illa ant, faghfir lee maghfiratan min aaindik warhamnee, innaka antal-ghafoorur-raheem.

‘o allah, i have indeed oppressed my soul excessively and none can forgive sin except you, so forgive me a forgiveness from yourself and have mercy upon me.  surely, you are the most-forgiving, the most-merciful.’

from yourself: i.e. from your innermost grace without deserving it and a forgiveness which is befitting to your tremendous generosity.

 

 

allahummagh-fir lee ma qaddamtu,  wama akhkhart, wama asrartu wama aaalant, wama asraftt, wama anta aaalamu bihi minnee, antal-muqaddimu wa-antal-mu-akhkhiru la ilaha illa ant.

‘o allah, forgive me for those sins which have come to pass as well as those which shall come to pass, and those i have committed in secret as well as those i have made public, and where i have exceeded all bounds as well as those things about which you are more knowledgeable. you are al-muqaddim and al-mu-akhkhir.  none has the right to be worshipped except you.’

meaning of al-muqaddim and al-mu-akhkhir: allah puts forward and favours whom he wills from amongst his creation just as he defers and holds back whom he wills in accordance to his wisdom.  e.g.  favouring man over the rest of creation, favouring the prophets over the rest of mankind, favouring muhammad  over all the prophets and messengers…etc.

 

 

allahumma aaainnee aaala thikrik, washukrik, wahusni aaibadatik.

‘o allah, help me to remember you, to thank you, and to worship you in the best of manners.’

 

allahumma innee aaaoothu bika minal-bukhl, wa-aaaoothu bika minal-jubn, wa-aaaoothu bika min an oradda ila arthalil- aaumur, wa-aaaoothu bika min fitnatid-dunya waaaathabil-qabr.

‘o allah, i take refuge in you from miserliness and cowardice, i take refuge in you lest i be returned to the worst of lives “i.e. old age, being weak, incapable and in a state of fear”, and i take refuge in you from the trials and tribulations of this life and the punishment of the grave.’

 

 

allahumma innee as-alukal-jannah, wa-aaaoothu bika minan-nar.

‘o allah, i ask you to grant me paradise and i take refuge in you from the fire.’

 

 

allahumma biaailmikal-ghayb, waqudratika aaalal-khalq, ahyinee ma aaalimtal-hayata khayran lee watawaffanee itha aaalimtal-wafata khayran lee, allahumma innee as-aluka khashyataka fil-ghaybi washshahadah, wa-as-aluka kalimatal-haqqi fir-rida walghadab, wa-as-alukal-qasda fil-ghina walfaqr, wa-as-aluka naaaeeman la yanfad, wa-as-aluka qurrata aaaynin la tanqatiaa, wa-as-alukar-rida baaadal-qada/, wa-as-aluka bardal-aaayshi baaadal-mawt, wa-as-aluka laththatan-nathari ila wajhik, washshawqa ila liqa-ik fee ghayri darraa mudirrah, wala fitnatin mudillah, allahumma zayyinna bizeenatil-eeman wajaaalna hudatan muhtadeen.

‘o allah, by your knowledge of the unseen and your power over creation, keep me alive so long as you know such life to be good for me and take me if you know death to be better for me.  o allah, make me fearful of you whether in secret or in public and i ask you to make me true in speech, in times of pleasure and anger.i ask you to make me moderate in times of wealth and poverty and i ask you for everlasting bliss and joy which will never cease.i ask you to make me pleased with what you have decreed and for an easy life after death.i ask you for the sweetness of looking upon your face and a longing to encounter you in a manner which does not entail a calamity which will bring about harm nor a trial which will cause deviation. o allah, beautify us with the adornment of faith and make us of those who guide and are rightly guided.’

 

 

allahumma innee as-aluka ya allah bi-annakal-wahidul-ahadus-samad, allathee lam yalid walam yoolad, walam yakun lahu kufuwan ahad, an taghfira lee thunoobee innaka antal-ghafoorur-raheem.

‘o allah, i ask you o allah, as you are the one, the only, as-samad, the one who begets not, nor was he begotten and there is none like unto him that you forgive me my sins for verily you are the oft-forgiving, most-merciful.’

as-samad: the self-sufficient master, possessor of perfect attributes whom all of creation turn to in all their needs.

 

 

allahumma innee as-aluka bianna lakal-hamd, la ilaha illa ant wahdaka la shareeka lak, almannan, ya badeeaaas-samawati wal-ard, ya thal-jalali wal-ikram, ya hayyu ya qayyoom, innee as-alukal-jannah, wa-aaaoothu bika minan-nar.

‘o allah, i ask you as unto you is all praise, none has the right to be worshipped except you, alone, without partner. you are the benefactor. o originator of the heavens and the earth, o possessor of majesty and honour, o ever living, o self-subsisting and supporter of all, verily i ask you for paradise and i take refuge with you from the fire.’

 

allahumma inne as-aluka biannee ashhadu annaka antal-lah, la ilaha illa ant, al-ahadus-samad, allathee lam yalid walam yoolad walam yakun lahu kufuwan ahad.

‘o allah, i ask you, as i bear witness that you are allah, none has the right to be worshipped except you, the one, as-samad who begets not nor was he begotten and there is none like unto him.’

as-samad: the self-sufficient master, possessor of perfect attributes whom all of creation turn to in all their needs.
