A Du’a asking for guidance


Kindly inform me if this is a du’a from Hadith?

اللهُمَّ اهْدِنِي وَسَدِّدْنِي

Allahummahdini wa saddidni



Yes. Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded this as part of a longer narration. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) instructed Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu) to recite this du’a.

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2725)



O Allah! Guide me and set me on the straight path.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
