Prayers of the Muslims who embraced Islam in the Days of the Prophet

Print

Rabba-nagh-fir lanaa wa li-ikh-waa-ninal la-dheena sabaqoo¬naa bil-eemaani
wa laa taj-'al fee quloo-binaa ghil-lal lil-la¬dheena aa-manoo
rabbanaa innaka ra -oofur raheem.
"Our Lord! Forgive us and our brethren who have preceded us in the Faith,
And leave not in our hearts any rancour towards those who believe;
Our Lord', surely Thou art Compassio¬nate, Merciful."
(59:10)

 


If one hastens to get all the good things of the world, and only think of them and pray for them, you would lose the higher things of the future. The proper Muslim attitude is neither to renounce this world nor to be so engrossed in it as to forget the spiritual future.

Rabbanaa aatinaa fid dunyaa ha sanataw
wa fil aakhirati hasana¬ taw
wa qinaa 'adhaa¬ ban naar.

"Our Lord! grant us good in this world
And good in the Hereafter,
And save us from the torment of the Fire."
(2:201)

In verses 15 and 17 of Chapter 3 it is said that those who keep from evil, the steadfast, the truthful, the devout, the charitable, and those who pray for forgiveness thus shall abide in heaven, and enjoy the pleasures thereof.


Rabbanaa inna-naa aa-mannaa
fagh-fir-lanaa
dhunoobanaa
wa-qinaa ‘adhaabannaar

Our Lord! We indeed believe;
So forgive us our sins,
And save us from the torment of the Fire.
(3:16)
