Dua For A Good Ending In Life

Dua For A Good Ending In Life


'Dua' (Prayer) For A Good Ending In Life by Omar Suleiman


You might have noticed that there is a trend of asking Allah for a good ending and because the Prophet (SAW) himself taught us to always ask Allah for a good ending, that we should have a good ending because that you have your high points and your low points, and you don't want Allah to send the angel of death to you while you're at a low point.

So there are many ways to ask Allah for a good ending, but if you've been around dying righteous people, you'd notice that in the last day of their lives that it's almost as if they were informed and they had a feeling that they were going to die, and that's something that you feel and it's not something that can be explained. It's not that there's any sort of explicit communication to people but there's a feeling, and and that's something that was narrated on behalf of many of the 'Salifs', many of the pious predecessors.

This particular 'Dua' (prayer) are very simple 'Dua' (prayer) but it's a beautiful one, of a man who just knew that the time had come. Abdullah Ibn Abi Sarh, one night was praying his 'Qiyam Al Layl', he was praying his night prayer, and he was so joyful in his 'Qiyam' meaning in his night prayer, that he just felt like he was in that connection, he felt like he was in that zone, and he asked Allah (SWT) at the end of that "Oh Allah, let the last of my deeds, be the performance of the 'Fajr' prayer", I mean he just asked Allah directly "let my 'Fajr' Prayer be the last of my deeds", because he had a routine of the night prayer and he felt that closeness to Allah (SWT), and the 'Fajr' prayer for the one who stands up and prays at night is the conclusion, it's not the beginning of the day as much as it is the conclusion of the night of supplication and feeling that closeness to Allah (SWT). So he finished his 'Qiyam' (Night Prayer), he went and he made his 'Wudhu', he prayed 'Fajr', and he died in the conclusion of 'Salatul Fajr'. So subhanAllah, it's not some death in the battlefield, it's not a stabbing, it's not something that's overly dramatic but it's a very simple recognition that there are some people that they feel that moment and they asked Allah (SWT) for that last ending.

Urwah (R.A) made 'Dua' to Allah to die in 'Sujood', to die in prostration. It is a good thing to ask Allah that you die in Prayer (Worship) or that you you meet Allah (SWT) in Prayer (Worship) or that the last of your deeds be Prayer (Worship), so we ask Allah (SWT) to take us in the state that is most beloved to Him, at a time that is most beloved to Him, and in a state of humility that is pleasing to  Him, and may Allah (SWT) give us lives that are pleasing to Him, and let our death come to us at the most pleasing time of our lives, and again, make the best of our days, the day that we meet Him.
