Your Lord conveys his salutations to you and tells you to take out this coat of armor jawshan and to recite this dua [instead], as it is a protection for you and your Ummah. Our limited space does not allow us to quote the entire narration here. However, it suffices us to mention that, according to this narration, whoever writes down this dua on his kafan burial shroud , God will not lead him to the hellfire and whoever recites this dua with a pure intention in the beginning of the month of Ramadan, God will grant him success to witness the Night of Qadr and will create for him seventy thousand angels, all of whom will be busy praising and glorifying God.
The rewards of this praise and glorification will be given to the person who recited this supplication. In addition, it is mentioned that whoever reads this supplication three times during the month of Ramadan, God will make the hellfire forbidden to him and will make it certain for him to enter Paradise. For such a person, God will also appoint two Angels to protect him from all evils in this world. However, it could be argued that because it was recommended to recite this dua three times in the month of Ramadan, people gradually over the centuries appropriated the three famous nights one of which is considered as the night of Qadr for recitation of this dua.
There is no god but Thee. Help us! Protect us from the Fire, O my Lord! The Concept of Tasbih This very sentence, which is repeated one hundred times in this dua, is very important and significant. Then he cried out in the darkness, "There is no god except You! You are immaculate! I have indeed been among the wrongdoers!
Another point that shows us the importance of tasbih is the fact that the angels are occupied with doing tasbih all the time. You comprehend all things in mercy and knowledge. So forgive those who repent and follow Your way and save them from the punishment of hell.
Immaculate are You! God has put so much power in tasbih that, according to some narrations, the angels gain their energy from tasbih. Nevertheless, when we call God, we usually ask Him what we need, since we are needy creatures and He is our Merciful Lord, and for many believers, this is the main purpose of dua. Even those who remember God out of their love for Him, usually ask God what they need in their duas, because they do not want to miss this great opportunity. Naturally, therefore, dua comes with requests.
But dua literally means to call, and ijabat, on the other hand, means to answer, not necessarily to give something. When you call someone and he answers you, this is ijabat and if you, then, ask him something, whether he fulfils your request or not, he already has answered your call.
Thus, whoever calls God, the Almighty will definitely answer him. If he asks God something, He either fulfils his request in this world, quickly or with some delay, or gives him something better in the hereafter. Then, he gets closer to Me through recommended acts until I love him. When I love him, I will be his ear by which he hears, his eyes through which he sees, his tongue with which he speaks, and his hands with which he strikes.
If he calls Me, I will answer him, and if he asks Me something, I will bestow it upon him. And in it are Your Greatest Name and Your best names. But which of those names is the Greatest Name of God? As a similitude, imagine a password, consisting of ordinary digits that are nothing but zero to nine.
What is important is the order of these digits. Without knowing that order, we would not know the password, even if we knew the exact digits that constitute the password. Thus, it is very important to know which names of God, how many times, and when they should be called. All of these one thousand names and attributes of God are beautiful and profound. In order for their meaning to be absorbed, deep reflection is necessary.
Now, I will focus on two sections of the dua, one of which emphasizes light and the other stresses life. Light in Section 47 In section 47 of the dua, ten names of God have been mentioned, all of which are related to light.
Majlisi , According to the first attribute in this section, God is the light of lights and every light comes from Him. The parable of His Light is a niche wherein is a lamp the lamp is in a glass, the glass as it were a glittering star lit from a blessed olive tree, neither eastern nor western, whose oil almost lights up, though fire should not touch it.
Light upon light. Allah guides to His Light whomever He wishes. Allah draws parables for mankind, and Allah has knowledge of all things. The planner of light is the one who regulates everything about light.
Yet the faithless equate [others] with their Lord. Ibn Tawus , Thus, everything is shining as far as it is facing God and may become wajh face of God. Therefore, everything has the capacity to direct us toward God. Allah is indeed all-bounteous, all-knowing. Based on this verse, if God was not Living, He would not be able to be the All-Sustainer who keeps all the worlds and creatures. So supplicate Him, putting exclusive faith in Him. All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of all the worlds. For instance, human life is always in danger; humans occasionally get ill and, in a defined term, they die.
Even if they do not become ill, they regularly go to a lower level of life when they fall asleep. Human beings in order to survive, depend on other humans, animals, plants, etc. Animals are in need of other living beings as well. Here, the story of Prophet Abraham a is worthy to be mentioned. His enemy, Nimrod, claimed that he is the one who gives life and takes it away. When Abraham said, "My Lord is He who gives life and brings death," he replied, "I [too] give life and bring death. And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing lot".
God showed Nimrod that he is wrong in his claims. When Nimrod wanted to kill Abraham a by throwing him in a huge fire, God saved Abraham a in the middle of the fire.
Thus, it was made known to everybody that it was only God who gave life and brought death. Be cool and safe for Abraham!
