  10. حسبي الله لَا إِلَه إِلَّا هُوَ عَلَيْهِ توكلت وَإِلَيْهِ أنيب – hasbiyallahu la ilaha illa huwa ‘alayhi tawakkaltu wa ilayhi unib– (Allah is sufficient, there is no Deity except him. I rely upon him and turn in repentance to him)”

 

Answer

Hakim Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration through a weak chain.

(Nawadirul Usul, Hadith: 931. Refer: Lisanul Mizan, vol. 1 pg. 309/310. Also see: Fathul Bari, under Hadith: 6982, vol. 12 pg. 354 and Kashful Khafa, Hadith: 1134)

 

Imam Ghazali (rahimahullah) has cited a similar du’a of the famous saint, Ma’ruf Karkhi (rahimahullah).

(Refer: Sharhul Ihya, vol. 5 pg. 70)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
