[ Day 8 Du’a ]

اللَّهُمَّ ارْحَمْ طُوْلَ ذَلِكَ القِيِامَ فِي اللَّيْلِ الطَّوِيْلِ، وَذَلِكَ النَّحِيْبُ وَالظَّمَأُ فِي هَوَاجِرِ المَدِيْنَةِ وَمَكَّةَ، وَبِرَّهُ بِأَبِيْهِ وِبِيْ. اللَّهُمَّ قَدْ سَلَّمْتُهُ لِأَمْرِكَ فِيْهِ، وَرَضِيْتُ بِمَا قَضَيْتَ فَأَثِبْنِي فِي عَبْدِ اللهِ ثَوَابَ الصَّابِرِيْنَ الشَّاكِرِيْنَ

“O Allah, have mercy on his lengthy standing during the longest nights, and that whimpering, and his thirst during the hot summer days of Mecca and Madinah, and his kindness to his father and to me. O Allah, I have surrendered him to whatever You decree on him, and am content with whatever You have decided, so reward me for ‘Abdullah the reward of the patient and thankful.”
