Supplication 85 (His supplication seeking the will of Allah (Istekhara))   Mp3

In the name of Allah the Beneficent the Merciful.


Whatever Allah wills, happens. O Allah! I seek goodness from You like a person who has put his affairs in Your hands, put his soul in Your control, and awaits Your order in his affairs, has turned to You, and the calamities when befall has relied on You.

O Allah! Let goodness be in my affair and not against me, for my benefit, not for my loss, grant me help and let not this help be against me. My help must be in my favour and not against me. Make me strong and don't let others overpower me.

Guide me towards goodness, save me from deviation, make me agreeable on Your judgement and satisfied on Your power because whatever You wish, is done and You have Power over all things.

O Allah! If this transaction is good for me and if it carries goodness for me in this world and the Hereafter make it easy for me, and if there is anything other than it, make it away for me.

O Most Merciful of all the mercifuls. Surely You have power over all the things and Allah is sufficient for us and most excellent is the protector.
