A follow up query on the du’a for protection from destruction by sin


Some ‘Ulama recommend reading this du’a after Fajr and after Maghrib:

La ilaha illallahu wahdahu la sharika lahu lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu yuhyi wa yumitu wa huwa ‘ala kulli shayin qadir

Is there any Hadith to support this?



The version recorded by Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah) mentions reciting this du’a after Maghrib and after Fajr. This practice is therefore supported by Hadith.

(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 4 pg. 227)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
