The Bismillah Prayer (Du’a)

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

Du’a of Bismillah

O Allah, I ask You through the abundant grace of Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim… and I ask You through the majesty and the praise of Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim… and I ask You through the reverence of Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim… and I ask You through the sanctity of Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim.  And through the power and the sovereignty and the greatness of Bismallahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim, and through the exaltedness and the strength and the potence of Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim – I ask You in the name of all these to raise me in Your estimation through the secret of Bismallahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim.

Make light the matter that troubles me and comfort and console me when I am shattered and weak.

Remove my poverty and grant me a long life with health and wellbeing. Grant this to me through Your abundant Grace, Your Generosity, and Your Greatness,

O You who are Kaaf Haa Yaa ‘Ayn Saad; Haa Meem ‘Ayn Seen Qaaf; Alif Laa Meem; Alif Laa Meem Raa; Alif Laa Meem Saad. Grant me (all that I ask of You) through the secret of the Great Name (Ism ul-Lah il-‘Atham).

Allah…there is no God but He; the One who is alive, the Eternal, the Sublime, the Great, the Possessor of Majesty and Honor.

I ask You through the Majesty of Your Reverence and the Glory of Your Power; I ask You through the Immensity of Your Greatness and the Sovereignty of Your Power, to place me amongst those who have no fear and who do not grieve. I ask You through the Beauty of Your Splendor and the Radiance of Your Noble Face to cause me to enter – through Your Mercy – the blessed garden…O Lord of the entire created order.

O Allah, I ask you through the great secret that resides in all that which have been mentioned before, to satisfy all my needs and my yearnings and to purify me from all the wrongs that I have committed. (Through that great secret) I also ask you to save me from all hurtful things and to raise me – in Your estimation – to the highest of all levels and to grant me the best of all that is excellent and blessed both in this life and the life after death.

I ask You O Allah, to relieve me from the difficulties in which I find myself and to decree for me the best of that which I long for and intend to do; and to protect me from all sedition and sins and abomination.

Protect me and my family and my children – and all those who are my responsibility – from all injury and evil and hardship… O Lord of the entire created order.


– a prayer of Sayyid Muhammad Alawi al-Maliki

    Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
    Ephesians 2:8-10
    8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
    9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
    10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

    Salaam, Nizar :) I am sorry, but I cannot find the du’a in Arabic. Perhaps you can translate it for us?

    And Allison, thank you so much for the Biblical quotes, which always speak of Jesus’s great love, out of which all is possible :)

    Ya Haqq!
