NOSTALGIA: DUA TO ENTER THE MASJID

There are holes in the line where my friends stood in Jumma and now they are gone……………..

Right as we speak they are entering the Masjid el Haraam and as they lay eyes on the House of My Lord, they are stunned and speechless…………………….I close my eyes and I am with them, right beside them gazing at the House of our Lord, and I too am speechless………..

The dua for entering the Masjid

dua of entry

‘I take refuge with Allaah, The Supreme and with His Noble Face, and His eternal authority from the accursed devil. In the name of Allaah, and prayers and peace be upon the Messenger of Allaah.

O Allaah, open the gates of Your mercy for me.’

I close my eyes and I am there, I open my eyes and I pray that I will soon be there, Inshallah!

  1. Jazaik Allah Khair! for this sharing this absolutely beautiful dua……………I once was thrown against the Multazim and was speechless at the very thought of where I was! It was as if I was in shock for a bit, before my tongue loosened to make dua……….but nothing like the beauty of this dua that you have shared.

    May Allah Subhanawataala take us back to his house! SOON!

  2. Comments from Sheikh Mokhtar – Inner dimensions of hajj

    It is related that Ibn ‘Abbas prayed this as his final farewell, clinging with his entire being to the multazam, the wall of the Ka‘bah between the hajr and the door:
    O Allah
    This House is Your House
    And this servant is Your servant, and the son of Your servants
    You have carried me here on what You have made accessible to me of Your creation
    Until You have made me reach, by Your grace, Your House
    And You have helped me fulfill my rites of Hajj
    (O Allah)
    If You have been pleased with me, then be more pleased with me
    And if You are not pleased with me, then I implore you to be generous to me now –
    Before my house becomes distant from Your house
    For now it is time for my departure, if You permit me –
    Never to exchange You for anything else, nor Your House for any other house
    Not being desirous of others instead of You, nor of any other house besides Your House
    O Allah,
    Grant me safety and good health in my body, protection in my religion and allow me a
    beautiful return
    And provide me with deeds and acts of Your obedience for as long as You grant me life
    And gather for me the best of this world and the next
    For truly You have power over all things.

    A mother once told her son that the Ka‘bah says: The one who does not see me will never rest; and the one who sees me will never rest.
    May our hearts find their ultimate rest by journeying to Allah long after our bodies have
    returned from Hajj. May we always be in Hajj.
    Hajj mabrur, my beloved brothers and sisters.
