A du’a asking Allah for the eternal bounties of the Hereafter

Question

Is the following a masnun du’a?

اللهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ النَّعِيمَ الْمُقِيمَ الَّذِي لَا يَحُولُ وَلَا يَزُولُ

Allahumma inni as-alukan na’imal muqimal ladhi la yahulu wa la yazulu

 

Answer

Yes. This is part of a lengthy du’a of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) recorded in the following Hadith collections:

  1. Musnad Ahmad, vol. 3 pg. 424
  2. Al Adabul Mufrad of Imam Bukhari, Hadith: 699
  3. Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 3 pg. 23

 

Translation

O Allah! I ask You for I ask You for the lasting/eternal bounty [of the Hereafter] which is neither changed nor removed

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
