A du’a taught to Ummu Salamah (radiyallahu ‘anha)

Question

Please provide the reference for this supplication
“O Allah, forgive my sins, remove the rage in my heart, and protect me from the trials of misguidance”

 

Answer

Imam Ahmad and Imam Tabarani (rahimahumallah) have recorded this du’a on the authority of Sayyidah Ummu Salamah (radiyallahu ‘anha) who says, “I said to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), ‘Teach me a du’a to supplicate for myself. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, Say, ‘Allahummagh firli dhanbi wa adh-hib ghayza qalbi wa ajirni min mudillatil fitan’

(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 6 pg. 302 with slight addition in the wording and Kitabud Du’a, Hadith: 1439)

 

Hafiz Haythami (rahimahullah) has declared the chain of Musnad Ahmad sound (hasan).

(Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 10 pg. 176)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
