Supplicating to Allah using His Greatest Name, when asked with this name He
gives, and when supplicated by this name he answers.


Narrated Buraydah ibn al-Hasib [Radi Allahu anhu : May Allah be pleased with
him]:The Apostle of Allah [Salla Allahu Aleihi Wassalam] heard a man saying:
Allhumma inni asaluka biannaka antaAllahu-la-ilah-illa anta-al-ahad as-Samad
al-ladhi lam yalid wa lam youlad. Wa lam yakullahu kufwan Ahad. (O Allah, I
ask You, as You are Allaah, none has the right to be worshipped except You,
The One, As-Samad (The Self-Sufficient Master), He begets not nor was He
begotten, equal to Him is not anyone.), and he said: You have supplicated
Allah using His Greatest Name, when asked with this name He gives, and when
supplicated by this name he answers. Reported by Tirmidhi and Abu Dawood.

bianna lakal hamd la ilah illa antal-hanan-al-manan badiussamawati wal-ard
ya dhal jalali wal-ikram ya hayyu ya qayyum asaluka" (O Allah, I ask You as
unto You is all praise, none has the right to be worshipped except You, the
most Kind, the Most Bounteous, Originator of the Heavens and the Earth, O
Possessor of Majesty and honour, O Ever Living, O Self-Subsisting and

Explanation:Hanan means the love for affection and tenderness (towards
others).The word Hanan has been used in Qur'an when Allah (Ta'la) mentions
Prophet Yahya (alaihis salaam:Peace be upon him):

Allah said,
(And (made him) Hananan from Us,) Surah Maryam [19:13] Ali bin Abi Talhah
reported that Ibn `Abbas said,
(And Hananan from Us, ) ``This means mercy from Us.'' `Ikrimah, Qatadah and
Ad-Dahhak all said the same. Ad-Dahhak added, ``Mercy that no one would be
able to give except Us.'' Qatadah added, ``With it, Allah had mercy upon
Zakariyya.'' Mujahid said,
(And Hananan from Us,) ``This was gentleness from His Lord upon him.''


Allah's Greatest Name is in Ayat Al-Kursi

Imam Ahmad recorded that Asma' bint Yazid bin As-Sakan [Radi Allahu anha :
May Allah be pleased with her] said, ``I heard the Messenger of Allah [Salla
Allahu Aleihi Wassalam] say about these two Ayat,

(Allah! None has the right to be worshipped but He, the Ever Living, the One
Who sustains and protects all that exists) [2:255], and,

(Alif-Lam-Mim. Allah! None has the right to be worshipped but He, the Ever
Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists) [3:1-2],
(They contain Allah's Greatest Name.)

This is also the narration collected by Abu Dawud, At-Tirmidhi and Ibn
Majah, and At-Tirmidhi said, ``Hasan Sahih''.
Further, Ibn Marduwyah recorded that Abu Umamah [Radi Allahu anhu : May
Allah be pleased with him] reported that the Prophet [Salla Allahu Aleihi
Wassalam] said,

(Allah's Greatest Name, if He was supplicated with it, He answers the
supplication, is in three Surahs - Al-Baqarah, Al `Imran and Ta-Ha.)

Hisham bin `Ammar, the Khatib (orator) of Damascus (one of the narrators in
the above narration), said, ``As for Al-Baqarah, it is in,

(Allah! None has the right to be worshipped but He, the Ever Living, the One
Who sustains and protects all that exists) [2:255]; in Al `Imran, it is in,

(Allah! None has the right to be worshipped but He, the Ever Living, the One
Who sustains and protects all that exists) [2:255]; in Al `Imran, it is in,

(Alif-Lam-Mim. Allah! None has the right to be worshipped but He, the Ever
Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists) [3:1-2], while in
Ta-Ha, it is in,

(And (all) faces shall be humbled before (Allah), the Ever Living, the One
Who sustains and protects all that exists) [20:111].'' [Tafsir al-Quraan
al-adtheem;Ibn Kathir]

the right to be worshipped but You (O, Allah), Glorified (and Exalted) be
You [above all that (evil) they associate with You]. Truly, I have been of
the wrong-doers.So We answered his call, and delivered him from the
distress. And thus We do deliver the believers (who believe in the Oneness
of All‚h, abstain from evil and work righteousness).." [Surat Al-Anbiya'
(The Prophets) XXI;verses 87-88]

supplicate Allah for anything and fail to receive an answer when he uses
Dhun-Nun's supplication when he was in the belly of the fish: "La ilaha illa
Anta Subhanaka inni kuntu minaz zalimin" (There is no god but Thee to whom
be the glory. I was indeed a wrongdoer.)
Ahmad and Tirmidhi transmitted it.

Only One and has no partners. For Him is the Kingdom and all the praises are
due for Him. He is Omnipotent. All the praises are for Allah. All the
glories are for Allah. And none has the right to be worshipped but Allah,

Dua through which Allah removes one's affliction and replaces it with joy
and happiness


Narrated Ibn Mas'ud [Radi Allahu anhu : May Allah be pleased with him]
reported that the Prophet [Salla Allahu Aleihi Wassalam] said, "If any
servant of Allah afflicted with distress or grief makes this supplication,
his supplication will be accepted: Allahumma inni 'abduka, ibnu 'abdika,
ibnu amatika, nasiyatee biyadika, madin fiyya hukmuka, adlun fiyya qada'uka,
as'aluka bikulli ismin huwa laka, sammaita bihi nafsaka, aw anzaltahu fee
kitabika, aw 'allamtahu ahadan min khalqika, awista'tharta bihi fee 'ilmil
ghaibi indaka, an taj'alal Qurana rabee'a qalbi, wa nura sadri, wa jala'a
huzni, wa dhababa hammi'(O Allah, I am Your servant, son of Your servant,
son of your maidservant. My fate (Arabic:Nasiyah, forelock/forehead)] is in
Your hands. Your Judgment on me has already passed, and Your ordainment for
me is just. I ask You by every name of Yours with which You have named
Yourself, or revealed it in Your book, or taught it to any of Your slaves,
or which You have chosen to keep in the knowledge of the unseen with You, to
make the Qur'an the spring of my heart, the light of my chest, and the
removal of my sadness and the departure of my worries.)" A supplication in
these words will be answered. Allah will remove one's affliction and replace
it with joy and happiness.The companions [Radi Allahu anhuma : May Allah be
pleased with them] asked: O Allah's Messenger!Shouldn't we learn (memorize)
this supplication (dua')? Allah's Messenger [Salla Allahu Aleihi Wassalam]
said: Why not, Every listener should learn (memorize)[this dua
(supplication)].

khalqika, awista'tharta bihi fee 'ilmil ghaibi indaka, an taj'alal Qurana
rabee'a qalbi, wa nura sadri, wa jala'a huzni, wa dhababa hammi.
