The Supplication of Yusuf (alayhis-salaam) That He Be Granted Death Whilst He Is A Muslim

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful The Bestower of Mercy

The statement of Allaah (The Most High) about Yoosuf His Prophet that he said:

أَنتَ وَلِيِّي فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةِ ۖ تَوَفَّنِي مُسْلِمًا وَأَلْحِقْنِي بِالصَّالِحِينَ

‘’You are my Wali (Protector, Helper, Supporter, Guardian, etc.) in this world and in the Hereafter, cause me to die as a Muslim (the one submitting to Your Will), and join me with the righteous.”[Soorah Yoosuf: Ayah:101]

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said:

This supplication gathers within it a firm acknowledgement of Allaah’s Oneness (in His Lordship, Worship and Names and Attributes), submission to the Lord, a manifestation of one’s need of Him and a declaration of one’s innocence from having a protector besides Him, (Free Is He From All Imperfections), and that being enabled to die upon Islaam is the loftiest goal of the slave, and that it is (an affair) only in the hands of Allaah and not in the hands of the slave; an acknowledgement of the afterlife and seeking the company of the fortunate ones.’’ [Source: al-Fawaa-d: page:286]
