A du’a to remove debts

Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) told Mu’adh (radiyallahu ‘anhu), “Should I not teach you a du’a which if you recite, your debts will be cleared even if they equal to mount Uhud?” The du’a is:

اللَّهُمَّ مَالِكَ الْمُلْكِ، تُؤْتِي الْمُلْكَ مَنْ تَشَاءُ، وَتَنْزِعُ الْمُلْكَ مِمَّنْ تَشَاءُ، وَتُعِزُّ مَنْ تَشَاءُ، وَتُذِلُّ مَنْ تَشَاءُ، بِيَدِكَ الْخَيْرُ، إِنَّكَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ، رَحْمانَ الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةِ تُعْطِيْهِمَا مَنْ تَشَاءُ، وَتَمْنَعُ مِنْهُمَا مَنْ تَشَاءُ، ارْحَمْنِي رَحْمَةً تُغْنِينِي بِهَا عَنْ رَحْمَةِ مَنْ سِوَاكَ

Allahumma Malikal Mulk, Tu-til mulka man tasha u watanzi’ul mulka mimman tasha u, wa tu’izzu man tasha u, watudhillu man tasha u, biyadikal khayru innaka ‘ala kulli shay in Qadir Rahmanad Dunya wal Akhirati tu’tihima man tasha u wa tamna’u minhuma man tasha u irhamni rahmatan  tughni ni biha ‘an Rahmati man siwak

Translation

O Allah! Possessor of the kingdom, You give the kingdom to whom You will, and You take the kingdom from whom You will. You grant honour to whom You will and disgrace whom You will. In Your Hand is all good. Verily, You are able to do all things. [O] Most Merciful of this world and the Hereafter, You grant them to whomsoever You wish and You deprive whomsoever You wish. Shower upon me such mercy, which will make me independent from the mercy of those besides You.’

(Al Mu’jamus Saghir, Hadith: 558. Also see: Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 323 vol. 20)

A du’a for the fulfillment of debts

Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu’anha) says: “Rasulullah (sallallahu ’alayhi wasallam) would seek refuge from debts at the end of his Salah (i.e, before the salam). When he was asked about why he did it so frequently, Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said:

“When a man falls into debt, he speaks lies and breaches his promises.”

The words of that du’a are:

اللّٰهُمَّ إني أعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ المأْثَمِ وَالمَغْرَم

Allahumma inni a’udhu bika minal ma-thami wal maghram

Translation

O Allah! I seek your protection from sin and debts.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 832 and 2397)

N.B. If one cannot recite this before the salam, one could recite it after the salam with the hope that Allah Ta’ala accepts it.

Generosity in Ramadan

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) narrates:

‘Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) was the most generous of all the people, and he would peak in generosity during Ramadan when Jibril (‘alayhis salam) used to meet him. Jibril (‘alayhis salam) would meet him every night in Ramadan to revise the Quran. [During those days] Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) was even more generous than the fair winds.’

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 6)

Commentary

This Hadith shows that Quran recital is the best ‘ibadah in Ramadan.

(Fathul Bari, Hadith: 6)

Revising the Quran refers to each one reciting to the other the entire Quran [that was revealed up to that particular Ramadan].

Some Sunnats of Ramadan

The above Hadith illustrates a few additional Sunnahs of Ramadan:

1. Increased generosity. This is in keeping with practice of our Creator Allah as He himself also increases His mercies and generosity in this month. (Lataiful Ma’arif)
2. To complete an entire recital of the Holy Quran like Rasululllah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) would recite to Jibril (‘alayhis salam).
3. To listen to an entire recital of the Holy Quran, as Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) would listen to the entire recital from Jibril (‘alayhis salam).

During Tarawih, we have an opportunity to listen to the entire Quran. To physically recite it is our onus.

Sadaqah in Ramadan

Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was asked, ‘After [the fast of] Ramadan, which fast is the best?’ Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) replied, ‘Sha’ban, in honour of Ramadan.’ It was then asked, ‘Which charity is the best?’ Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) replied, ‘Charity in Ramadan.’

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 663)

Decreasing the duties of our staff/workers in Ramadan

Sayyiduna Salman (radiyallahu’anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said
[as part of a longer Hadith]:

“Whosoever lessens the burden of his servants [bondsmen] in this month [Ramadan], Allah will forgive him and free him from the fire of Jahannam.”
(Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah, Hadith: 1887)
