A du’a of Imam Ahmad ibn Hambal (rahimahullah)

Question

Is this du’a found in a Hadith?

اللهم من كان من هذه الأمة على غير الحق وهو يظن أنه على الحق فرده إلى الحق ليكون من أهل الحق

Allahumma man kana min hadhihil ummati ‘ala ghayril haqqi wa huwa yadhunnu annahu ‘alal haqqi faruddahu ilal haqqi liyakuna min ahlil haqqi

 

Answer

Hafiz Ibn Kathir (rahimahullah) has cited this as the du’a of Imam Ahmad ibn Hambal (rahimahullah). Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah) would recite this du’a in sajdah (probably in nafl Salah).

(Al Bidayah Wan Nihayah, vol. 11 pg. 166)

 

Translation

O Allah! Whoever from this ummah is upon misguidance but thinks he is on the truth, return him to the truth so that he may be from those on truth

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
