Listen Online


In the name of Allah the Beneficent the Merciful.

Say: O Allah, Master of the Kingdom You give the kingdom to whosoever You please and take away the kingdom from whomsoever You please and You exalt whom You please and abase who You please, in Your hand is the good, surely You have power over all things.

You make the night to pass into the day and You make the day to pass into the night and You bring forth the living from the dead and You bring forth the dead from the living and You give sustenance to whom You please without measure.

Allah is great! Allah is great. In front of His Majesty the entire creation has bowed before Him. And in front of His Honour every great thing feels humiliated. No one from among them can reach me whereas Allah has dispersed them into parts, their arrogance destroyed them, say 'I seek refuge in the Lord of the dawn from the evil of what He has created and from the evil of utterly dark night when it comes.

And from the evil of those who blow on knots, and from the evil of the envious when he envies. And say I seek refuge in the Lord of men the king of men, the God of men from the evil of the whisperings of the slinking (shaitan) who whispers into the hearts of men from among the jinn and the men.

O enemies the doors in front of me are closed for the people of future and past, now all of them are deviated and accursed. I rebuke and scold you by the effect of the chapters of 'Saffat' and 'Zariyaat' and 'Mursalat' and  'Nziyaat'. You all turn into dust, so that neither you can lay your hands on me nor on any other believer. This is the day on which they shall not speak and permission shall not be given to them so that they should offer excuses.

Their eyes will be blinded, tongues will be tied and the neck bowed for the Creator of the universe. O Allah by the letter 'Meem' and 'Ain' and 'Faa' and the light of the body and the shining of the morning and whatever is destined for me.

O the possessor of Power, save me from the awe and fear of the tyrants. Allah is overpowering and no one can run away from His domain when help of Allah comes the victory is near and if Allah helps you then no one can overpower you.

Allah has decided that He and His prophets will be overpowering everybody. Without any doubt Allah is strong and the possessor of power, whoever seeks refuge in Allah is safe and no one can give strength except Allah the great.
