بِاسْمِكَ رَبِّـي وَضَعْـتُ جَنْـبي، وَبِكَ أَرْفَعُـه، فَإِن أَمْسَـكْتَ نَفْسـي فارْحَـمْها،

وَإِنْ أَرْسَلْتَـها فاحْفَظْـها بِمـا تَحْفَـظُ بِهِ عِبـادَكَ الصّـالِحـين


• Be in Tahaarah
• Renew your Tawbah
• Lie on your right side

and then read this supplication:

“Bismika Rabbee wada‘tu jambee wabika arfa‘uh, fa’in amsakta nafsee farhamhaa, wa’in arsaltahaa fahfadhhaa bimaa tahfadhu bihee ‘ibaadakas-saaliheen.”

“‘In Your name Ô Allaah, I lay my side and in Your name I raise it. If you keep my soul, give it (Your Loving) Mercy, and if You release it, care for it as You care for Your righteous servants.”

READ ONCE before sleeping (page 134)*

  4. Thank you for this, I didn’t know this supplication, it’s a profound du’a.

    Posts like this are priceless gems, for the one reading and for the author. The one reading can immediately start doing it and make it a life long practice. And the one who passed on this gem receives a reward each and everytime the dhakir makes the dhikr.

    Subhan Allah.
