رَبَّنَا اصْرِفْ عَنَّا عَذَابَ جَهَنَّمَ ۖ إِنَّ عَذَابَهَا كَانَ غَرَامًا. إِنَّهَا سَاءَتْ مُسْتَقَرًّا وَمُقَامًا.
Our Lord, avert from us the punishment of Hell. Indeed, its punishment is ever adhering; Indeed, it is evil as a settlement and residence.
Rabbanaṣrif anna adhaba Jahannam, inna adhabaha kana gharama. Innaha sa’at mustaqarrawwa muqama.
To ask Allah’s protection against Hellfire is, effectively, to ask Him for the means against being punished with it. Hence, it is to ask Allah for protection against sins and to ask Him to facilitate righteous deeds and all acts of worship. -Ibn ‘Ashoor.
