Tijaniyyah Du'a for Ramadhan
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
This is the du’a that Shaykh al-Islam, Shaykh Ibrahim Niyas (q.s.) used to advise the Tijaniyyah to recite on a regular basis in the nights of Ramadhan.
Allahumma innii as’aluka bika wa bi khaatami anbiyaa’ika wa bi khaatami awliyaa’ika an tu’ayyidnaa fii adaa’i huquuqi shahri Ramadhaan wa alhimnaa fiih ar-rushda fii saa’iri ahkaamihi wa waffiqnaa lisunnati Nabiyyika wa arzuqnaa fiih ta’zhiima maa ‘azhzhamta wa ’asimna fiih an kulli ghaa’ilin min dasaa’isi an-nafsi wa ra’uunaatihaa. Hatta laa yaswduru minnaa illaa maa fiih ridhaaka wa ’aqthaa’naa an kulli maa siwaaka wa am laa quluubanaa min hubbika wa ma’rifatika wa khawfika wa at-tashawwuqi ilayka wa thahhirnaa bi at-taqwa, Ya Arham ar-Rahimiin. Ya Hannaan Ya Mannaan Ya Badii’ as-samaawawti wa al-ardhi. Ya Dza al-Jalaali wa al-Ikraam. Ya Hayyu Ya Qayyuum, aswlih shu’uunanaa zhaahirahaa wa baathinahaa haqiirahaa wa jaliilahaa wa akhri da’waanaa ani al-Hamdu lillahi Rabb al-‘Aalaamiin.
The summary of its meaning is:
O Allah, I ask You by You and by the Seal of Your Prophets and by the Seal of Your Saints to Support us in fulfilling the rights of the month of Ramadhan and Guide us in it to the Straight Path in fulfilling its rulings and grant us to follow the sunnah of Your Prophet (s.a.w.) and Guide us to in it to honour that which You have Honoured and protect us in it from every subtle trick of the nafs and its egoistic actions until we say and do nothing except that which pleases You and Cut us from all other than You and Fill our hearts with Your Love and Your Gnosis and fear of and the desire for You and Purify us through piety. O Most Merciful of the Merciful One. O Most Compassionate, O Ever-Providing One, O Originator of the Heavens and the Earth. O Possessor of Majesty and Generosity. O Ever Living, O Master of All Affairs, Fix all our affairs, the outward and the inward, the significant and the insignificant and our final prayer is: All Praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds.
