As Ramadan draws closer, reverberations of the words Allahumma ballighna Ramadan (O Allah, let us reach Ramadan) abound. Although this sentence carries a wonderful sentiment, it’s not authentically attributed to the Prophet ﷺ. But there is a beautifully comprehensive du’a the Companions used to make to reach Ramadan safely and prepare for the month of mercy spiritually. Dr. Tahir breaks down that wonderful du’a taught by Sh. Yahya ibn Abi Kathir, a student of those blessed Sahabah.
Du’a to reach Ramadan
اَللّٰهُمَّ سَلّمْنِيْ إِلى رَمَضانَ وَسَلّمْ لِي رَمَضانَ وَتَسَلَّمْه مِنِّي مُتَقَبَّلا
Allahumma sallimni ila Ramadan wa sallim li Ramadan wa tasallamhu minni mutaqabbala
O Allah! Preserve me until Ramadan, safeguard Ramadan for me and accept it from me (receive my deeds with acceptance).
