The following is a translation of a duaa by our Shaykh Saalih Al Fawzaan at the end of his khutbah on Friday 1st November 2013. I translate this for our brothers and sisters in Damaaj and other countries like Syria, Palestine, Iraq, Pakistan and all the other countries who are facing similar persecution at the hands of the enemies of Islaam. It is the least that I can do as a means of encouraging our fellow Muslim brothers and sisters particularly Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamah around the world to forsake their beds in the nights and supplicate for them until Allah brings victory.
THE DUAA OF SHAYKH FAWZAAN:
“Oh Allah bring honor (victory) to Islaam and the muslims, and degrade shirk (polytheism) and the polytheist. Oh Allah destroy the enemies of Islaam. Oh Allah make this country safe (Saudi Arabia) and the other muslim countries in general, Oh Lord of the universe (jinn and mankind). Oh Allah protect our safety, our eemaan (Islaam, faith) and our peace in our native lands and rectify those placed in authority over our affairs (muslim leaders) and don’t hold us to account for that which the foolish amongst us have done, and protect us from trials the apparent and hidden of it. Oh Allah show us the truth for the truth and help us to follow it, and show us the falsehood for falsehood and help us to stay away from it, and make eemaan (Islaam,faith) the most beloved to us and beautify it in our hearts, and make disbelief, lewdness and rebellion most hated to us and make us from those who are guided.
Oh Allah rectify our leaders, Oh Allah guide them to that which is good for themselves and to that which is good for Islaam and the believers. Oh Allah make them a means for our safety, and make them a means for our word (belief, aqeedah) to be one, and make them a cause for our coming together, Ya Al Hayu (Oh The Ever Living, The One who cannot die), Ya Al Qayyum (The Self Sustainer), Ya Saami (The Hearer) of the supplication. Oh Allah safeguard the muslim countries in general. Oh Allah bring ease to the believers from that which they face from sufferings (agony) at the hands of the enemies, the disbelievers and the hypocrites. Oh Allah give the believers immediate ease. Oh Allah give the believers victory with a happy outcome. Oh Allah make ease for the believers from every difficulty and from every suffering, Oh Hearer of the supplication, Oh Reliever from every distress, Oh answerer of the supplication, Oh Helper of the grieving, Oh ever living, Self Sustaining, Oh Hearer of the supplication, Oh Owner of Loftiness and Nobility.”
