Allahumma Inni as alukal Jannah – This is a powerful supplication. It expresses the deep desire to attain ultimate reward and complete success promised by Allah in the Hereafter. Because entering Paradise is the pursuit and desire of every believer throughout his life. Here I have a brief discussion on which hadith this supplication is and its benefits.

Allahumma inni as alukal Jannah; Meaning and significance

Meaning of the prayer

The root of the prayer Allahumma inni as alukal jannah is in an Arabic hadith, which I will discuss a little later. Let’s take a look at the main prayer here.

اللَّهُمَّ إنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ الْجَنَّةَ وَأَسْتَجِيْرُ بِكَ مِنَ النَّارِ

Translation “O Allah, I seek Paradise from You and refuge from Hell”

Allahumma inni as alukal Jannah | Dua

Explanation: I wish Jannah to you with faith and steadfast trust and with a heart free from impurity. And I wish you safety from the fire and punishment of hell. In fact, without faith in Allah and full practice of Islam in real life, only praying for Paradise is not very fruitful.

The significance of the prayer

  • The Dua for Jannah Love teaches us that the ultimate success lies in the Hereafter and that this worldly life is only a joke.
  • By invoking Allah’s name and seeking His mercy, believers express their humility, dependence and unwavering trust in Allah’s guidance and mercy.
  • Dua is a fundamental aspect of worship, which establishes a direct connection between the believer and Allah.

من سأل الله الجنة ثلاث مرات قالت الجنة: اللهم أدخله الجنة، ومن استجار من النار ثلاث مرات قالت النار: اللهم أجره من النار. قال الشيخ الألباني صحيح.

Translation: Whoever asks Allah for Paradise three times (Allahumma inni asalukal will say Jannah, intercedes for that person) Jannah will say O Allah you admit him to Paradise, and whoever asks Allah for refuge from Hell three times, Hell will say O Allah you Release him from me. (Narrated by Imam Tirmidhi, the hadith is Sahih according to Shaykh Albani Rahimahullah)
