Duas for protection of Eeman and steadfastness on Deen

Duas for protection of Eeman and steadfastness on Deen up to the end of one’s life:

No one is safe from misguidance. So remember to constantly ask Allah to keep you on the straight path.

The Duas given below should be read daily for this purpose of protecting one's Imaan and Living and Dying on Islam:


رَبَّنَا لَا تُزِغْ قُلُوبَنَا بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَيْتَنَا وَهَبْ لَنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ رَحْمَةً ۚ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْوَهَّابُ

 "Our Lord, let not our hearts deviate after You have guided us and grant us from Yourself mercy. Indeed, You are the Bestower."
 [Qur’an- Surah Aal ‘Imraan 3:8]


The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) often used to say:

«يَا مُقَلِّبَ الْقُلُوبِ ثَبِّتْ قَلْبِي عَلَى دِينِك» 
(Yaa Muqallibal Quloob Thabbit Qalbee ‘alaa Deenik) 
“O Turner of the hearts, make my heart steadfast in adhering to Your religion.”
(Tirmidhi (2140), Ibn Majah; graded Sahih)

The prophet ﺻﻠﯽ الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰ ﻋﻠﯿﮧ ﻭﺍٓﻟﮧ ﻭﺳﻠﻢ  said:

 اللَّهُمَّ مُصَرِّفَ الْقُلُوبِ صَرِّفْ قُلُوبَنَا عَلَى طَاعَتِكَ

Allāhumma Musarrif al-Qulūbi Sarrif Qulūbana 'alā Tā'atika
"O Allah, Turner of the hearts, direct our hearts to Your obedience."
(Sahih Muslim)

The prophet ﺻﻠﯽ الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰ ﻋﻠﯿﮧ ﻭﺍٓﻟﮧ ﻭﺳﻠﻢ used to pray after salah:
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْكُفْرِ وَالْفَقْرِ وَعَذَابِ الْقَبْرِ 
"Allahumma inni a'udhu bika minal-kufri wal-faqri, wa 'adhabil-qabri 
(O Allah, I seek refuge with You from Kufr, poverty and the torment of the grave.)" (Nasai- Grade Hasan)

The prophet ﺻﻠﯽ الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰ ﻋﻠﯿﮧ ﻭﺍٓﻟﮧ ﻭﺳﻠﻢ advised to recite:
اللهم اهدني، وسددني

Allahumma-hdini wa saddidni 

(O Allah! Direct me to the Right Path and make me adhere to the Straight Path)." (Sahih Muslim)

Even Prophet Yusuf عليه سلم  prayed for death on Eeman:

تَوَفَّنِي مُسْلِمًا وَأَلْحِقْنِي بِالصَّالِحِينَ

"Cause me to die a Muslim and join me with the Righteous." (12:101)

*Other important advice:*

Please notice in the above ayah that dying as a Muslim and being in the company of the righteous have been inter-linked. 
Similarly the Hadith mentions that a man is up on the Deen of his friend. (Sunan Abu Dawud-
الرَّجُلُ عَلَى دِينِ خَلِيلِهِ فَلْيَنْظُرْ أَحَدُكُمْ مَنْ يُخَالِلُ )

So, along with the Duas, we must be careful about the people we befriend and the company we adopt, in real life or online. 

And if one gets any doubts or misunderstands any aspect of Islam, he should discuss it with a good scholar as soon as possible so as to have certainty of faith and peace of mind.

May Allah protect us all from every misguidance. آمين يا رب العالمين
