27th night Duaa (supplication) of Shaykh Zulfiqar Ahmad (D.B)

images (12)Below is a transcript of a Duaa made by Shaykh Zufiqar Ahmad Naqshbandi (D.B) on the 27th night of Ramadaan.

(N.B Some guidelines for the Duaa are discussed first)


Allah Almighty says in the Qur`aan Majid:

ولله الأسماء الحسنى فادعوه بها 

Wa lillaahil Asmaaul Husnaa Fad’u hu bihaa.

“And Allah has the most beautiful names, so invoke him by them.”

Practicing on this Aayah (verse) we will call onto Allah Rabbul Izzah by these names.

It comes in the Hadith that from all the names of Allah there is one name, the Isme-Aadham (greatest name), when supplication is made using this name, the Duaa will be accepted.

From all the 99 names, we do not know which one is the Isme-Aadham but we are sure that it is one of them, we will therefore invoke Allah by calling on all these names and by doing so we will have more Yaqeen (certainty) about the acceptance of our Duaa.

An Amal (practice) for a tranquil home and marital relationship.

images (51)Shaykh Zulfiqar Ahmad D.B mentioned the following prescription in one of his discourses:

“In many homes the condition of marital relationships are not very favourable. In some cases it is due to the wife’s faults and in some cases it is due to the husband’s faults and in some cases both are at fault. To resolve this there is an amal (practice) which I would like to give permission to the people to perform. Those who are married should definitely do it and those who are of an understanding age (close to marriage) must also do it and Inshaa-Allah, if Allah Almighty grants them the opportunity of having their own home one day, they too will find happiness.

This Aajiz (humble servant) was given permission to do this Amal by a certain Buzurg (pious person). After practicing this Amal this Aajiz also found sukoon (tranquility) and all troubles were removed. Therefore you are also advised to do this practice: It is as follows:

Whenever you perform any Salaah – be it Fardh (compulsory), Waajib, Sunnah, or Nafl (optional) – in the final sitting (At-Tahiyyaat) when you are reciting Rabbana-Aatina…, Rabbij Alnee… or other Du’aas (supplications) before turning the head for Salaam recite this Du’aa also:

رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا

“Rabbana Hab Lana Min Azwaajina Wa Dhurriy-yaatina Qurrata A’ayuniw- Waj ‘alna lil Muttaqeena Imaamaa”

“Our Lord! Bestow on us from our spouses and our offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and make us leaders for the Muttaqun/Righteous ones.” (Al-Furqan 25:74)

By reciting this Du’aa, Allah Rabbul Izzah will cause all the members of your household to be the coolness of your eyes.

All those who have listened to this have the Ijaazah (permission) to carry out this Amal (practice).

May Allah Rabbul Izzah bless all with Barakah (divine blessing) and fill homes with tranquillity.”
