I am feeling Hypocritical


يَا مُقَلِّبَ الْقُلُوْبِ ثَبِّتْ قَلْبِيْ عَلَىٰ دِيْنِكَ

Yā Muqalliba-l-qulūbi thabbit qalbī ʿalā dīnik.

O Changer of the hearts, make my heart firm upon Your religion.

Anas (raḍiy Allāhu ‘anhu) said: “The Messenger of Allah ﷺ would often say [the above]. So I asked: ‘O Messenger of Allah, we believe in you and what you have come with, but do you fear for us?’ He replied: ‘Yes. Indeed the hearts are in between the two Fingers of Allah’s Fingers. He changes them as He wills.”’ (Tirmidhī 3522)


آمَنْتُ بِاللهِ وَرُسُلِهِ

Āmantu bi-llāhi wa rusulih.

I believe in Allah and His Messengers.

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “Shaytān comes to one of you and says: ‘Who created you?’ He replies: ‘Allah.’ Then Shaytān says: ‘Who created Allah?’ If that happens to any one of you, let him say [the above]. Indeed it will go away from him.” (Ahmad 25671)


هُوَ الْأَوَّلُ وَالْآخِرُ وَالظَّاهِرُ وَالْبَاطِنُ ، وَهُوَ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيْمٌ

Huwa-l-Awwalu wa-l-Ākhiru wa-ẓ-Ẓāhiru wa-l-bāṭin, wa Huwa bi-kulli shay’in ‘Alīm.

He is the First and the Last, the Most High and the Most Near. And He is All-Knowing about everything.

Abu Zumayy reported: “I asked Ibn Abbas (radiy Allāhū ‘anhumā): ‘What is this that I am experiencing?’ He answered: ‘What is it?’ I said: ‘By Allah, I cannot talk about it.’ He asked me: ‘Is it something to do with doubt?’ [When answered it was], he smiled and said: ‘No-one was safe from it until Allah revealed:

“If you are in doubt concerning what We revealed unto you [O Prophet], ask those who read the Scripture from before your time. The truth has indeed come to you from your Lord, so be not one of those in doubt.” (10:94)

Ibn Abbas (radiy Allāhū ‘anhumā) told me: ‘If you find any [doubt] within yourself, say: [the above].” (Abū Dāwūd 5110)


اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَعُوْذُ بِكَ أَنْ أُشْرِكَ بِكَ وَأَنَا أَعْلَمُ ، وَأَسْتَغْفِرُكَ لِمَا لَا أَعْلَمُ

Allāhumma innī aʿūdhu bika an ushrika bika wa-ana aʿlam, wa astaghfiruka limā lā aʿlam.

O Allah, I seek Your protection from knowingly committing shirk and seek Your forgiveness for unknowingly (committing it).

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “O people, beware of this shirk, for it is more subtle than the footsteps of an ant.” The one whom Allah willed should speak asked him: “How can we beware of it when it is more subtle than the footsteps of an ant, O Messenger of Allah?” He replied: “Say [the above].” (Ahmad 3731)

Ma’qil bin Yasār (raḍiy Allāhu ‘anhu) narrated: “I walked with Abū Bakr Siddīq (raḍiy Allāhu ‘anhu) to the Messenger of Allah ﷺ. He ﷺ said: “O Abū Bakr! This shirk is more subtle than the footsteps of an ant.” Abū Bakr asked, “Is shirk not only when a person ascribes a partner with Allah?” The Messenger of Allah ﷺ replied: By the One in whose hands my life is, shirk is more subtle than the footsteps of an ant. Shall I not guide you towards something which if you say, it will remove it’s minor and major? He ﷺ said: “Say [the above].” (Al-Adab al-Mufrad 716)
