Would Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) recite ‘Rabbana atina fid dunya hasanah…’?

Question

Is there any mention in the Hadith that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) himself would recite the following du’a?

ربنا آتنا في الدنيا حسنة وفي الآخرة حسنة، وقنا عذاب النار

 

Answer

Yes. This is recorded in Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim.

Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would say:

اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً، وَفِي الآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً، وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

Allahumma Rabbana atina fid dunya hasanah wa fil akhirati hasanah wa qina ‘adhaban nar

O our Rabb! grant us good in this world, good in the hereafter and save us from the punishment of the fire

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 4522 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2690)

 

One version of this narration states that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would recite this du’a frequently.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 6389)
