Dua No: 29
وَجَّهْتُ وَجْهِيَ لِلَّذِي فَطَرَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ حَنِيفًا وَمَا أَنَا مِنَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ ، إِنَّ صَلاتِي وَنُسُكِي وَمَحْيَايَ وَمَمَاتِي لِلهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ، لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ وَبِذَلِكَ أُمِرْتُ وَأَنَا مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ

اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ الْمَلِكُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ ، أَنْتَ رَبِّي وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ ، ظَلَمْتُ نَفْسِي وَاعْتَرَفْتُ بِذَنْبِي فَاغْفِرْ لِي ذُنُوبِي جَمِيعًا إِنَّهُ لَا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ ، وَاهْدِنِي لِأَحْسَنِ الأَخْلاقِ لَا يَهْدِي لِأَحْسَنِهَا إِلَّا أَنْتَ ، وَاصْرِفْ عَنِّي سَيِّئَهَا لَا يَصْرِفُ عَنِّي سَيِّئَهَا إِلَّا أَنْتَ

لَبَّيْكَ وَسَعْدَيْكَ ، وَالْخَيْرُ كُلُّهُ بِيَدَيْكَ وَالشَّرُّ لَيْسَ إِلَيْكَ ، أَنَا بِكَ وَ إِلَيْكَ ، تَبَارَكْتَ وَتَعَالَيْتَ ، أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوْبُ إِلَيْكَ
"I have turned my face sincerely towards Him who has brought forth the heavens and the Earth and I am not of those who associate (others with Allah). Indeed my prayer, my sacrifice, my life and my death are for Allah, Lord of the worlds, no partner has He, with this I am commanded and I am of the Muslims.

O Allah, You are the Sovereign, none has the right to be worshiped except You. You are my Lord and I am Your slave, I have wronged my own soul and have acknowledged my sin, so forgive me all my sins for no one forgives sins except You. Guide me to the best of characters for none can guide to it other than You, and deliver me from the worst of characters for none can deliver me from it other than You.

Here I am, in answer to Your call, happy to serve you. All good is within your hands and evil does not stem from you. I exist by your will and will return to you. Blessed and High are You, I seek Your forgiveness and I repent unto You."


Allah does not create pure evil which does not have any good, benefit, wisdom or mercy at all, nor does He punish anyone without having committed a sin. Something can be good in terms of its creation when viewed from a particular perspective and at the same time be evil when viewed from another.

Allah created the devil and by him, He tests His slaves, so there are those who hate the devil, fight him and his way and they stand at enmity towards him and his followers, and there are others who are at allegiance with the devil and follow his steps. So evil exists in His creatures by His will and wisdom, not in His actions or act of creating.
wajjahtu wajhiya lil-ladhee faṭarad-samaawaati wal-arḍa ḥaneefan, wa maa ana minal-mushrikeen, inna ṣalaatee wa nusukee wa maḥyaa-ya wa mamaatee lillaahi rabbil-‛aalameena, laa shareeka lahu wa bidhaalika umirtu wa ana minal-muslimeen

allaahumma antal-maliku laa ilaaha illaa ant, anta rabbee wa ana ‛abduk, ẓalamtu nafsee wa‛taraftu bidhambee faghfir lee dhunoobee jamee‛an innahu laa yaghfir-udh-dhunooba illaa ant, wahdinee li aḥsanil-akhlaaqi laa yahdee li aḥsanihaa illaa ant, waṣrif ‛annee sayyi’ahaa laa yaṣrifu ‛annee sayyi’ahaa illaa ant

labbayka wa sa‛dayka, wal-khayru kulluhu bi yadayka wash-sharru laysa ilayka, ana bika wa ilayka, tabaarakta wa ta‛aalayta, astaghfiruka wa atoobu ilayk
