O Allah! Make me blessed wherever I am

Question

Is this du’a authentic?

اللهم اجعلني مباركا اينما كنت

Allahummaj ‘alni mubarakan ayna ma kuntu

 

Answer

I have not come across this as a du’a in any Hadith source.

However, the meaning is correct and could be recited on condition that a person does not regard it to be a Sunnah du’a.

 

‘Isa (‘alayhis salam) had used similar words. Allah Ta’ala mentions:

وَجَعَلَنِي مُبَارَكًا أَيْنَمَا كُنْتُ

“He has made me blessed wherever I may be”

(Surah Maryam, Verse: 31. Also see: Hilyatul Awliya, vol. 3 pg. 25 and Jami’u Bayanil ‘Ilmi Wa Fadlihi, Hadith: 798-799)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
