Mufti Ismail Menk

English Translation, Transliteration & Arabic text included.
رَبَّنَا اغْفِرْ لَنَا وَلِإِخْوَانِنَا الَّذِينَ سَبَقُونَا بِالْإِيمَانِ وَلَا تَجْعَلْ فِي قُلُوبِنَا غِلًّا لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا. رَبَّنَا إِنَّكَ رَءُوفٌ رَحِيمٌ.
Our Lord, forgive us and our brothers who preceded us in faith and put not in our hearts [any] resentment toward those who have believed. Our Lord, indeed You are Kind and Merciful.
Rabbanaghfir lana wa liikhwaninalladhina sabaquna biliman, wa la tajal fi qulubina ghillallilladhina amanu Rabbana innaka Ra’ufurRahim.
Because this beautiful supplication is an expression of the love that bonds all Believers in every age, it is appropriate that it should end with an invocation whereby we ask Allah to keep our hearts free of any resentment or ill will for other Believers. -Tafseer As-Sa’di.
رَبَّنَا عَلَيْكَ تَوَكَّلْنَا وَإِلَيْكَ أَنَبْنَا وَإِلَيْكَ الْمَصِيرُ.
Our Lord, upon You we have relied, and to You we have returned, and to You is the destination.
Rabbana alayka tawakkalna wa ilayka anabna wa ilaykalmaṣir.
This supplication is an affirmation and reaffirmation of different aspects of Tawheed. To rely on Allah and no one or nothing else is Tawheed. To return to Allah by means of repentance and to acknowledge that no one is capable of forgiving sins but Allah is also Tawheed. Finally, to acknowledge that our final destination is to Allah for our Judgment and reckoning is also an expression of Tawheed. Hence, this supplication is a means by which a Muslim re-emphasizes one’s complete trust in and dependence on Allah, seeking strength from no one but Allah in all matters.
رَبَّنَا لَا تَجْعَلْنَا فِتْنَةً لِلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا رَبَّنَا ۖ إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ.
Our Lord, make us not [objects of] torment for the disbelievers and forgive us, our Lord. Indeed, it is You who is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
Rabbana la tajalna fitnatallilladhina kafaru waghfir lana Rabbana innaka AntalAzizulhakim.
Just as Allah guides people in accordance with His Mercy and Judgment, He also misguides those who deserve misguidance on account of what their own hands have wrought and the rejection of His signs. One of the means by which Allah misguides the disbelievers is to grant them victory over sinful and transgressive Muslims. Hence, on the one hand, Muslims are punished for their sins and for turning their backs on Allah’s commands, while on the other hand, the Unbelievers are led further astray, for their victory and authority over Muslims cause them to think that they have the truth. -Tafseer As-Sa’di and others.
رَبَّنَا أَتْمِمْ لَنَا نُورَنَا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا ۖ إِنَّكَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ.
Our Lord, perfect for us our light and forgive us. Indeed, You are over all things competent.
Rabbana atmim lana nurana waghfir lana innaka ala kulli shay’in Qadir.
Scholars state that the Believers will utter these words on Judgment Day when they see the light of the hypocrites being extinguished. Because hypocrites only falsely declare their faith without ever truly believing, they live this life and benefit from the light of the Believers without having the light of faith themselves. This reality will be exposed on Judgment Day, and their borrowed light will abandon them and leave them in darkness. Hence, the Believers ask Allah to complete and perfect their light for them, and to forgive their sins. -Ibn Katheer.
رَبِّ ابْنِ لِي عِنْدَكَ بَيْتًا فِي الْجَنَّةِ.
My Lord, build for me near You a house in Paradise.
Rabbibni li indaka baytan filJannah.
These words spoken by Asiyah, the wife of Pharaoh, are part of a supplication that exemplifies her faith and dependence on Allah. She was neither affected by her husband’s hatred for the truth nor by his efforts to destroy the Believers. Instead, she recognized the truth when she saw it and accepted it. She then sought Allah’s help against the evil of her people and asked Him to grant her a home near Him in Paradise. -Ibn Katheer and others.
رَّبِّ ٱغْفِرْ لِى وَلِوَٰلِدَىَّ وَلِمَن دَخَلَ بَيْتِىَ مُؤْمِنًا وَلِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَٱلْمُؤْمِنَٰتِ وَلَا تَزِدِ ٱلظَّٰلِمِينَ إِلَّا تَبَارًۢا.
My Lord, forgive me and my parents and whoever enters my house a believer and the believing men and believing women. And do not increase the wrongdoers except in destruction.
Rabbi ghfir li waliwalidayya waliman dakhala baytiya muminan walilmuminina walmuminati wala tazidi zzalimina illa tabara
After warning and advising his people for close to a thousand years, Prophet Nuh finally invoked Allah and asked him to forgive him, those who accepted faith with him, and every other Believer who was to come from then on afterwards. After Allah had told him that no one else would accept faith among his people, Prophet Nuh invoked Allah to destroy the Unbelievers for their evil and their stubborn rejection of the truth lest future generations be misguided by them. -Various Tafseer.
