Allahumma Inni As Aluka Al Afiyah

Allahumma Inni As Aluka Al Afiyah

“Allahumma inni as aluka al afiyah fiddunya wal-akhirah”.

O Allah, I ask You for security in this world and in the Hereafter.

This is a du’a that Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) taught his uncle, Al-‘Abbas, to recite.

Abul-Fadl Al-‘Abbas bin ‘Abdul-Muttalib (ra) reported:
I asked the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) to teach me a supplication. He (ﷺ) said, “Beg Allah for safety (from all evils in this world and in the Hereafter).” I waited for some days and then I went to him again and asked him: “O Messenger of Allah Teach me to supplicate something from Allah.” He said to me, “O Al-‘Abbas, the uncle of Messenger of Allah! Beseech Allah to give you safety (Al-‘afiyah) in this life and in the Hereafter.”

Riyad as-Salihin

When you’re granted ‘afiyah by Allah, it means that you’re saved from affliction.

Being in a state of ‘afiyah involves having:

  • Good health
  • Enough provision to live comfortably
  • Forgiveness from Allah
  • Protection over your children

You can learn an extended version of this short but powerful du’a below:

Allahumma Inni As Aluka Al Afiyah Dua

Allahumma inni as aluka al afiyah
O Allah, I ask You for security in this world and in the Hereafter

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ الْعَافِيَةَ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالآخِرَةِ اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ الْعَفْوَ وَالْعَافِيَةَ فِي دِينِي وَدُنْيَاىَ وَأَهْلِي وَمَالِي اللَّهُمَّ اسْتُرْ عَوْرَتِي ‏وَآمِنْ رَوْعَاتِي اللَّهُمَّ احْفَظْنِي مِنْ بَيْنِ يَدَىَّ وَمِنْ خَلْفِي وَعَنْ يَمِينِي وَعَنْ شِمَالِي وَمِنْ فَوْقِي وَأَعُوذُ بِعَظَمَتِكَ أَنْ أُغْتَالَ مِنْ تَحْتِي‏

Allahumma inni as aluka al afiyah fiddunya wal-akhirah. Allahumma inni as aluka al-‘afwa wal-‘afiyah fiddini wa dunyaya, wa ahli wa mali. Allahumma ustur ‘awrati, wa amin raw’ati. Allahumma ihfazni min bayni yadayya wa min khalfi, wa ‘an yamini wa ‘an shimali wa min fawqi, wa ‘auoodu bi’azamatika an ughtala min tahti.

O Allah, I ask You for security in this world and in the Hereafter: O Allah! I ask You for forgiveness and security in my religion and my worldly affairs, in my family and my property; O Allah! Conceal my fault and keep me safe from the things which I fear; O Allah! Guard me in front of me and behind me, on my right hand and on my left, and from above me: and I seek in Your greatness from receiving unexpected harm from below me.

Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) never failed to utter these supplications in the evening and in the morning: O Allah, I ask Thee for security in this world and in the Hereafter: O Allah! I ask Thee for forgiveness and security in my religion and my worldly affairs, in my family and my property; O Allah! Conceal my fault or faults (according to Uthman’s version), and keep me safe from the things which I fear; O Allah! Guard me in front of me and behind me, on my right hand and on my left, and from above me: and I seek in Thy greatness from receiving unexpected harm from below me.” Abu Dawud said: Waki’ said: That is to say, swallowing by the earth.

Graveyard Dua

The Prophet used to ask Allah to grant ‘afiyah for believers and Muslims – who were both living and inhabitants of the graves.

You can recite the following du’a next time you visit the graveyard of believers and Muslims:

السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ أَهْلَ الدِّيَارِ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُسْلِمِينَ وَإِنَّا إِنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ بِكُمْ لاَحِقُونَ نَسْأَلُ اللَّهَ لَنَا وَلَكُمُ الْعَافِيَةَ

As-salamu ‘alaykum ahlad-diyar minal-mu’minina wal- muslimin, wa inna insha’ Allah bikum lahiqun, nas’alul-laha lana wa lakumul-‘afiyah.

Peace be upon you, O inhabitants of the abodes, believers and Muslims, and we will join you soon if Allah wills. We ask Allah for well-being for us and for you.

It was narrated from Sulaiman bin Buraidah that his father said:
“The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) used to teach them, when they went out to the graveyard, to say: As-salamu ‘alaykum ahlad-diyar minal-mu’minina wal- muslimin, wa inna insha’ Allah bikum lahiqun, nas’alul-laha lana wa lakumul-‘afiyah (Peace be upon you, O inhabitants of the abodes, believers and Muslims, and we will join you soon if Allah wills. We ask Allah for well-being for us and for you).’”
