A du’a of Sa’id ibn Jubayr (rahimahullah)

Question

Is this du’a found in Hadith?

اللهم إني أسألك صدق التوكل عليك وحسن الظن بك

Allahumma inni as-aluka sidqat tawakkuli ‘alayka wa husnaz dhanni bika

O Allah! I ask You to grant me true reliance on You and good expectations of You.

 

Answer

Imam Abu Bakr ibn Abi Shaybah (rahimahullah) has recorded this as the du’a of the Tab’i, Sa’id ibn Jubayr (rahimahullah).

(Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 36491, Hilyatul Awliya, vol. 4 pg. 274, Siyaru A’alamin Nubala, vol. 4 pg. 325)

 

Imam Abu Nu’aym (rahimahullah) has recorded the following words as a du’a of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) with a weak chain:

اللهم إني أسألك التوفيق لمحابك من الأعمال وصدق التوكل عليك وحسن الظن بك

Allahumma inni as-alukat tawfiqa li mahabika minal a’amal wa sidqat tawakkuli ‘alayka wa husnaz dhanni bika

(Hilyatul Awliya, vol. 8 pg. 224)

 

Translation

O Allah! I ask You to grant me the ability to do deeds that are beloved to You, I ask You to grant me true reliance on You and good expectations of You

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
