A wonderful du’a asking Allah Ta’ala to rectify our Din, dunya and Hereafter

Question

Can you provide the reference and Arabic text of this supplication:

O Allah, rectify my religion which is the safeguard of my affairs, rectify my worldly life in which is my livelihood, and rectify my Hereafter which is my place of return. Make life a source of abundance of every good and make my death a relief and comfort from every evil

 

Answer

Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) who says that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would make the following supplication:

اللهُمَّ أَصْلِحْ لِي دِينِي الَّذِي هُوَ عِصْمَةُ أَمْرِي، وَأَصْلِحْ لِي دُنْيَايَ الَّتِي فِيهَا مَعَاشِي، وَأَصْلِحْ لِي آخِرَتِي الَّتِي فِيهَا مَعَادِي، وَاجْعَلِ الْحَيَاةَ زِيَادَةً لِي فِي كُلِّ خَيْرٍ، وَاجْعَلِ الْمَوْتَ رَاحَةً لِي مِنْ كُلِّ شَرٍّ

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2720)

 

Transliteration 

Allahumma aslih li dini alladhi huwa ‘ismatu amri wa aslih li dunyaya allati fiha ma’ashi, wa aslih li akhirati allati fiha ma’adi waj’alil hayata ziyadatal li fi kulli khayr waj’alil mawta rahatal li min kulli sharr

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
