Episode 3: A Covenant with Allah


In the 3rd episode of the Prayers of the Pious Ramadan series, Sh. Omar Suleiman discusses the power of making covenants with Allah swt through the prayer of Abdullah ibn Mas’oud, and the sincerity covenants can bring to your own du'a.

[ Day 3 Du'a ]

اللهُمَّ فَاطِرَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ ، عَالمَ الغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ ، إِنِّي أَعْهَدُ إَلَيْكَ فِي هَذِهِ الحَيَاةِ الدُنْيَا : إِنَّكَ إِنْ تَكِلْنِي إِلَى نَفْسِيْ تُقَرِّبُنِي مِنْ الشَّرِّ ، وَتُبَاعِدُنِي مِنْ الخَيْرِ ، وَإِنِّي إِنْ أَثِقُ إِلَّا بِرَحْمَتِكَ فَاجْعَلْهُ لِي عِنْدَكَ عَهْدَاً تُؤَدِّهِ إِلَيَّ يَوْمَ القِيَامَةِ ، إِنَّكَ لَا تُخْلِفُ المِيْعَادَ

“O Allah, Originator of the heavens and earth, Knower of the seen and unseen, I testify in this worldly life of mine that if You leave me to myself, You are by that bringing my closer to harm and distancing me from good. I have no confidence except in Your mercy, so let that be a covenant that You deliver to me on the Day of Judgment — for You never break Your promises.”
