“O Allah, I seek refuge in You from disbelief and poverty and I seek refuge in You from punishment of the grave. There is none worthy of worship but You.”
O Allah, my Caretaker and Provider, my Protector and my Refuge, I seek refuge in You. From what? Firstly, from disbelief. For the greatest gift we have been given as Muslims (and we tend to forget it is Allah’s greatest gift on us) is the guidance of Islam. To be granted the guidance of Islam without having asked for it, Allahu Akbar. So we seek refuge in the Almighty from disbelief.
The second thing we seek refuge in Allah for is poverty. Poverty is a test that nobody wishes to be tested in, so we seek Allah’s protection from that. For every blessing, every form of income we have in our lives is from Him.
Lastly, we see refuge in Allah from the punishment of the grave. For that is one of the worst punishments that will happen to some people in the afterlife. May Allah (swt) protect us from the punishment of the grave and make our graves a room from the rooms of Jannah. Ameen.
There is none worthy of worship but You. For all of these things that we seek refuge in you from, there is a blessing that we haven’t thanked You enough for it. There is none worth worshiping, for You have given us the guidance of Islam, every form of income is a blessing from You and we seek Your protection from the punishment of the grave.
