Episode 27: You Took My Kids | Prayers of the Pious

Sh. Omar Suleiman reflects upon the righteous du’a of Umar ibn abd al-’Aziz after he suffered the loss of his children.

[ Day 27 Du’a ]


اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّكَ قَدْ قَبَضْتَ سَهْلاً، وَعَبْدَ المَلِكَ، وَمُزَاحِما، فَلَمْ أَزْدَدْ لَكَ إِلَّا حُبّاً، وَلا فِيْمَا عِنْدَكَ إِلَّا رَغْبَةً فَاقْبِضْنِيْ إِلَيْكَ غَيْرَ مُضِيعٍ وَلا مُفْرِطٍ

“O Allah, you took back the soul of Sahl, AbdulMalik, and Muzahim, and it only made me love You more, and more desirous of what awaits with you, so take back my soul without me being negligent or careless.”
