Question

اللَّهُمَّ أَغْنِنِي بِالْعِلْمِ وَزَيِّنِّي بِالْحِلْمِ وَأَكْرِمْنِي بِالتَّقْوَى وَجَمِّلْنِي بِالْعَافِيَةِ

Please provide me with the kitab/source of this du’a

 

Answer

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu’anhuma) is recorded to have reported this as the du’a of Nabi (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam).

(Tarikh Ibn Najjar and Tarikh Qazwin; refer: Kanzul ‘Ummal, hadith: 3663 & 3757)

Imam Ibn Abid Dunya (rahimahullah) has also recorded Imam Sufyan Thawri (rahimahullah) stating that this was a du’a that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) would recite.

(Kitabul Hilm, Hadith: 3; Mawsu’ah ibn Abid dunya, Hadith: 12667)

 

Transliteration and Translation:

Allahumma aghnini bil ‘ilm wa zayyinni bil hilm wa akrimni bit taqwa wa jammilni bil ‘afiyah.

O Allah enrich me with knowledge, adorn me with tolerance, honour me with piety and beautify me with safety/good health.

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
