Episode 15: The Prayer of a Tree | Prayers of the Pious

Sh. Omar Suleiman reflects upon a tree’s prayer and the beauty of prostration.

[ Day 15 Du’a ]

اللّهُمّ اكتُبْ لي بِهَا عِنْدَكَ أَجْراً، وَضَعْ عَنِّيْ بِهَا وِزْراً، وَاجْعَلْهَا لِيْ عِندَكَ ذُخْراً، وَتَقَبّلْهَا مِنِّيْ كَمَا تَقَبَّلْتَهَا مِنْ عَبْدِكَ دَاوُدَ عَلَيْهِ الصَّلاةُ والسَّلامُ

“O Allah, write for me a reward with You because of it (the prostration), and remove from me a sin because of it, and stow it for me as a treasure with You, and accept it from me as You accepted it from Your servant David (Dawud), upon him be blessings and peace.”
