Episode 17: His Prayer Amazed the Prophet


This is the 17th episode of the Prayers of the Pious Ramadan series.  Sh. Omar Suleiman reflects on a du’a from an unknown Bedouin who called to Allah with so much praise he amazed the Prophet ﷺ.

[ Day 17 Du'a ]

يَا مِنْ لا تَرَاهُ العُيُوْنُ، وَلا تُخَالِطُهُ الظُّنُوْنُ، وَلا يَصِفُهُ الوَاصِفُوْنَ، وَلا تُغَيِّرُهُ الحَوَادِثَ، وَلا يَخْشَى الدَّوَائِرَ، يَعْلَمُ مَثَاقِيْلَ الجِبَالِ، وَمَكايِيْلَ البِحَارِ، وَعَدَدَ قَطَرِ الأَمْطَارِ، وَعَدَدَ وَرَقِ الأَشْجَارِ، وَعَدَدَ مَا أَظْلَمَ عَلَيْهِ اللَّيْلُ وَأَشْرَقَ عَلَيْهِ النَّهَارُ، وَلا تُوَارِيْ مِنْهُ سَمَاءٌ سَمَاءً، وَلا أَرْضٌ أَرْضاً، وَلا بَحَرٌ مَا فِيْ قَعْرِهِ، وِلا جَبَلٌ مَا فِيْ وَعْرِهِ، اجْعَلْ خَيْرَ عُمْرِيْ آخِرَهُ، وَخَيْرَ عَمَلَيْ خَوَاتِيْمَهُ، وَخَيْرَ أَيَّامِيْ يِوْمَ أَلقاكَ فِيْهِ

“Oh He whom the eyes do not see, nor can be mixed with doubts, nor can be described by any who describe, nor is changed by any events, nor fears any officer, who knows the weights of the mountains, the measurements of the seas, the number of raindrops, the number of leaves on trees, and the number of whatever is shrouded in the darkness of night and brightened by the light of day, for whom no heaven or earth is concealed, nor a sea in its depths, nor a mountain in its ruggedness! Make the best of my life the end of it, the best of my deeds the last of them, and the best of my days the Day I meet You.”
