Episode 5: The Hand That Kills Me | Prayers of the Pious

A du’a can make even the most unlikely circumstances occur, such as in the case of Umar and his martyrdom.

[ Du’a Day 5 ]

اللهُمَّ ارْزٌقْنِيْ شَهَادَةً فِيْ سَبِيْلِكَ وَاجْعَلْ مَوْتِيْ فِيْ بَلَدِ رَسُوْلِكَ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ

اللَّهُمَّ لا تَجْعَلْ قَتْلِيْ عَلَى يَدِ عَبْدٍ سَجَدَ لَكَ سَجْدَةً يَحَاجُّنِيْ بِهَا يَوْمَ القِيَامَةِ

“O Allah I ask you to be accepted as a martyr in the city of your Prophet.”

“O Allah, do not let my killing be at the hand of someone who ever prostrated to You, lest he use that against me on the Day of Judgment.”
