Month of Ramadan

Dua Ya Aliyu Ya Azeem

It has been narrated that to recite this dua after each and every obligatory prayer all over the month of Ramadan:

O the Most High; O the All-great;

يَا عَلِيُّ يَا عَظِيمُ،

O the All-forgiving; O the All-merciful

يَا غَفُورُ يَا رَحِيمُ،

You are the All-great Lord

أَنْتَ الرَّبُّ الْعَظِيمُ

Like Whom there is nothing

الَّذِي لَيْسَ كَمِثْلِهِ شَيْءٌ

and He is the All-hearing, the All-aware;

وَهُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْبَصِيرُ،

and this is a month that You have glorified and ennbled,

وَهذَا شَهْرٌ عَظَّمْتَهُ وَكَرَّمْتَهُ

and honored and preferred to the other months,

وَشَرَّفْتَهُ وَفَضَّلْتَهُ عَلَى الشُّهُورِ،

it is the month that You imposed upon me to observe fasting in it,

وَهُوَ الشَّهْرُ الَّذِي فَرَضْتَ صِيَامَهُ عَلَيَّ،

it is the month of Ramadan during which You revealed the Qur'an

وَهُوَ شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي أَنْزَلْتَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنَ

as guidance for people and clear proofs on true guidance and distinction (between the right and the wrong);

هُدَىً لِلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِنَ الْهُدَى وَالْفُرْقَانِ

and You decided the Grand Night to be in it,

وَجَعَلْتَ فِيهِ لَيْلَةَ الْقَدْرِ

and You have decided it to be more favorable that one thousand months.

وَجَعَلْتَهَا خَيْراً مِنْ أَلْفِ شَهْرٍ،

So, O the Lord of graces; and none can ever do favor to You;

فَيَا ذَا الْمَنِّ وَلا يُمَنُّ عَلَيْكَ

Please do me a favor by releasing me from the Fire and by including me with those to whom You do this favor,

مُنَّ عَلَيَّ بِفَكَاكِ رَقَبَتِي مِنَ النَّارِ فِي مَنْ تَمُنُّ عَلَيْهِ

and allow me to enter Paradise;

وَأَدْخِلْنِي الْجَنَّةَ

on account of Your mercy; O the most Merciful of all those who show mercy.

بِرَحْمَتِكَ يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ.
