[9] Excerpts From ‘Fiqhul Ad-iyah Wal-Ad-kaar’- [Beneficial Reminder From a Tremendous Supplication of The Night Prayer – (To Be Said After Takbeer And Before Recitation)]

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

The Supplication:

O Allaah! Lord of Jibraa’eel, Meekaa’eel and Israa’feel, The Originator of the heavens and the earth, Knower of the seen and unseen; You are the one who arbitrate between Your servants in that which they differ. Guide me to the truth -by Your Leave – in that which they differ, for verily You guide whom You will to the straight path. [Saheeh Muslim Number 770]


Reminders from the supplication by Shaikh Abdur Razzaaq al-Badr [may Allaah preserve him]


This supplication contains At-Tawassul [i.e. seeking a means of getting close to Allaah or seeking what one desires by way of affirming and believing] in Allaah’s absolute Lordship over everything and his specific Lordship over these Angels, whom He has given the task [and the means of giving life]; because Jibraa’eel [alayhis-salaam] is given the task to convey the revelation [to the Prophets and Messengers], which is a means of life for the hearts and souls [i.e. guidance to the straight path]; Meekaa’eel [alayhis-salaam] is given the task of directing the  rain drops [wherever Allaah wills], which gives life to the earth and the vegetation, and is a source of life for the animals; and Israa’feel [alayhis salaam] is given the task of blowing the trumpet by way of which the creation will be brought back to life again after death.

[Likewise seeking a means of closeness to Allaah or seeking what one desires by affirming and believing that Allaah] is the Originator of the heavens and the earth – the one who created and brought them into existence, and [affirming and believing in the fact that] by way of His Knowledge, He is the Knower of the seen and unseen; and that Allaah [glorified be He and free is He from all imperfections] is the one who arbitrates between His servants in that which they differ, and [asking Him to] guide us to the truth in that which they differ.

And Hidaayah [Guidance] is to have knowledge of the truth, intending to [reach it] and preferring it over other things. The guided person is that one who acts upon the truth and intending [to reach it], and this is the greatest blessing of Allaah that is bestowed upon a servant. We ask Allaah to guide all of us to the straight path and grant us every good.
