The du’a of ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) asking for martyrdom in Madinah Munawwarah

Question

Please authenticate the following du’a for me:

‘Allahummar zuqni shahadatan fi sabilika waj’al mawti fi Baladi Rasulika sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam’

 

Answer

This is actually the du’a of Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) recorded by Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah). It is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 1890)

 

Translation

O Allah! Bless me with martyrdom in Your path and make my death in the City of Your Messenger (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)

 

Arabic text

اللهم ارزقني شهادة في سبيلك واجعل موتي في بلد رسولك صلى الله عليه وسلم

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
