A Du’a asking for guidance

Question

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

اللهُمَّ اهْدِنِي وَسَدِّدْنِي

Allahummahdini wa saddidni

 

Answer

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)

 

Translation

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

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
