I am reading the section of Surah Al – Maidah where the hawaris (Disciples/Apostles) ask Jesus (AS) to request Allah SWT to send a generous table from the Heavens, I guess to prove the signs and blessings of Allah. (I guess this is what the Christians refer to as the last supper).
Allah says in the Quran 5: 112-115, that He will send this blessing, but if after this they disobey He will send a torment like He has sent to no other.
This part of the Surah shakes me and I look for protection. I find the supplication for obedience in the Morning adkaars:
اللّهُـمَّ اقسِمْ لي مِنْ خَشيَتِكَ ما تَحُولُ بهِ بَيني و بينَ مَعصِيَتَك، و مِنْ طَاعَتِكَ ما تُبَلِغُني بهِ جَنَتَك، و مِن اليَقِينِ ما تُهَوِنُ بهِ عليَّ مَصَا ئِبَ الدُنيا.
“Allaahumma aqsim lee min khashyatika maa tahoolu bihi baynee wa bayna ma‘siyatak, wa min taa‘atika maa tubalighunee bihi jannatak, wa minal-yaqeeni maa tuhawinu bihi ‘alayya masaa’ibad-dunyaa.”
“Ô Allaah, bestow upon me a share of fear from You which will prevent me from disobeying You, and bestow upon me a share of obedience with which You will take me to Your jannah, and bestow upon me a share of certainty with which You lighten the effects of the hardships and tribulations of this dunyaa on my heart.”
I know I am weak and I know I need His (SWT ) help, and I need yours, so those of you, who are reading this, please keep me in your prayers. Jazaik Allah hu Khairan.
Jazaaik Allah hu Khairan. You all are in my prayers.
Salaamu alaykum Asqfish,
May Allah reward you greatly. I think I was led to this dua.
It’s very true that fear prevents from disobedience.
InshaAllah I will add this to my regular adhkar.
You are in my prayer. I hope we’re in yours.
Asalaamoalaikum, Please add if you have additional supplications for obedience, may Allah reward you.
