A Dua to protect against the Fitna of Dajjal‏

اَللَّهُـمَّ إِنيِّ أَعوُذُ بِكَ مِنْ عَذاَبِ جَهَنَّمَ،وَمِنْ عَذاَبِ الْقَبْرِ وَمِنْ فِتْـنَةِ الْمَحْياَ وَالْمَماَتِ وَمِنْ فِتْـنَةِ الْمَسيِحِ الدَّجاَّلِ اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ الْمَأْثَمِ وَالْمَغْرَمِ

Allahumma inni a’udhu bika min ‘adhabi jahannam, wa min ‘adhabil-qabr, wa min fitnatil-mahya wal-mamat, wa min fitnatil-masihid-Dajjal.  Allahumma ‘inni ‘a’udhu bika minal ma’thami wal maghrami.
O Allah! I seek Your protection from the torture of hell, and I seek Your protection from the torture of the grave, and I seek refuge with You from the mischief of life and death, and I seek Your protection from the mischief of Dajjal pretending as Messiah.  O Allah! I seek refuge in You from sin and from debt.

[Sahih al-Bukhari 2:102, Muslim 1:412, 588]

Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) used to read in every salah before ending the salah

  1. Aslam-u-Alaikum,

    To make sense of an issue, there are proper ways (words or actions) to communicate one’s thoughts, intentions, and messages to others.

    Everyone’s brain is wired differently. Therefore, it’s thinking and understanding capacity differs which is the root cause of any disagreement(s).

    There is blindness, but then there is mental blindness. Means sometimes we look at something but we cannot see it while others can. Similarly, sometimes we listen to something but we cannot hear it while others can. That is where Allah’s test comes in where we may get tested based on our intentions, deeds, and abilities to seek, understand, and accept the truth that others can’t.

    Both Arabic and the English version of the supplication (dua) above made the same sense to me as it should have been with no difference in meanings. One can communicate to God easily in his/her own language as long as that communication method works for that person to achieve the comfort of the heart and a peace of mind. The recommended reason to learn the dua in Arabic language is to preserve it’s true source, originality, and it’s essence.

    May Allah the Almighty guard us, protect us, and save us all (including any other entities) from the mischief of Dajjal and his followers. Amen.

    I prefer to memorize the first part (juz) of the Chapter (Suraah) Al-Kahf 13 verses instead of just memorizing the first 10 verses to guard against the mischief of Dajjal.

    Technically, regardless of their age difference, Imam Mahdi will come forward not before the appearance of Dajjal’s effects. The rest Allah knows best.

    It is OK to learn the issues of your religion by questioning, challenging, analyzing, and finding facts to understand the truth without wondering away from The Light of Allah and His Teachings.

    I am an ordinary person like many with a passion to learn and understand. May Allah guide us all. Amen.

    Jazaakum Allah Al-Khair.


  2. Read the comment of ‘uthman’ and let me quote what he wrote “because the mahdi is already here. he has something that his working on for his mission but in a year or two”. Sounds to me he’s talking about one of his friends named Mahdi.


    • ASA Seba, you are right! Rasool Alllah pbuh used to read Surah Kahf on Fridays and it gives protection between one friday and the next. It is not either or but both. Allah knows best.

  4. Assalamualaikum brothers, Can i recite and memorise this dua in english (not roman arabic)? I mean it feels easier because you not only recite it but you also have an idea of it. I could learn arabic but well who knows, i might not have enough time to recite and memorise this dua by the time i learn arabic fully. plz help


      the actual dua in arabic is best as it came from the best, next best is your mother tongue with the sincerity of your heart:) Allah knows best. Just do it!


    • I think its not justified, because orignal dua is in arabic and people have translated to english to the very best to match with original which is not possible,, it can be close to original but not original itself,, so by heart it,, Allah subhanata-a-ala may like ur effort if try to memorize it by heart.

    you will get a good reward for this dua from ALLAH the great.

      • Fear Allah brother, don’t spread falsehood, for there is a grave punishment for it. Don’t speak of things you’re not sure about. May Allah guide us all to the truth and make us not among the ones who fall into the traps of the accursed devil. Ameen.


      • ASA Brother Mustafa, I am not sure what you are talking about. Please elaborate? We fear Allah and do not spread falsehood, what made you think so?
