Tijaniyyah Du'a for Muharram
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Some of the Tijaniyyah recommend the following to be done on the 1st Muharram, although there is no harm in reading it during the rest of the month, especially the first ten days.
For protection on this Blessed day, we are asked to read Ayat al-Kursi 360 times.
Allah! There is no God save Him, the Alive, the Eternal. Neither slumber nor sleep overtaketh Him. Unto Him Belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. Who is he that intercedeth with Him save by His Leave? He Knoweth that which is in front of them and that which is behind them, while they encompass nothing of His Knowledge save what He Will. His Throne includeth the heavens and the earth, and He is never weary of Preserving them. He is the Sublime, the Tremendous. (Surah al-Baqarah:255)
And then read this du’a once:
Ya Muhaawwil al-Ahwaal, Hawwil haalana ilaa ahsan il-ahwaal bihawlika, Ya ‘Azizu Ya Muta'aal wa swalla Allahu ‘alaa Sayyidinaa Muhammadin wa ‘alas alihi wa swahbihi wa sallam.
Oh Changer of States, Change our state to the best of states, with Your State O All-Mighty, O One Exalted beyond All Imagination, and Send Your Salutations on our master Muhammad and on his family and companions with peace.
