A du’a to recite expressing gratitude to Allah

Question

Please provide the reference and Arabic text for this supplication:

“O Allah! Any blessing, I or any of Your creation has risen upon is from You alone, You have no partners, all praise and gratitude belongs to You”

 

Answer

Imams Nasai and Ibn Hibban (rahimahumallah) have recorded the version you have cited. Imam Abu Dawud (rahimahullah) has recorded slightly different words on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Gannam Al Bayadi (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(As Sunanul Kubra, Hadith: 9750, Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 861, Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 5034)

 

Virtue of reciting this du’a:

Whoever recites this du’a in the morning [or evening] has fulfilled the shukr [gratitude] to Allah Ta’ala for that day/night.

 

Arabic text:

اللهم ما أصبح بي من نعمة أو بأحد من خلقك فمنك وحدك لا شريك لك فلك الحمد ولك الشكر

Allahumma ma asbaha bi min ni’matin aw bi ahadim min khalqika fa minka wahdaka la sharika laka fa lakal hamdu wa lakash shukru

 

Note:

When reciting this du’a in the evening, one should say ‘أمسى’ [amsa] instead of ‘أصبح [asbaha]’.

(Sharh Ibn Raslan, Hadith: 5073)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
