From Ibraheem bin Muhammad bin Sa’ad from his father from his grandfather who said: ‘We were sitting with the Prophet – sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam– and he said:

«أَلَا أُخْبِرُكُمْ بِشَيْءٍ إِذَا نَزَلَ بِرَجُلٍ مِنْكُمْ كَرِبٌ، أَوْ بَلَاءٌ مِنْ بَلَايَا الدُّنْيَا دَعَا بِهِ يُفَرَّجُ عَنْهُ؟»

 ‘Shall I not inform you with a matter, that if a calamity or a trial from the trials of the Duniya befall a person and then he makes Dua with this matter he will be free from that calamity?

It was said to him: Of course.

He said:

دُعَاءُ ذِي النُّونِ: لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنْتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ

‘The Dua of Yunus : There is none worthy of worship except You, free are You from imperfection and indeed I am from the oppressors.’

[Collected by al-Hakim & Albaani declared it to be Hasan in his research in Silsilah Saheehah no. 1744]

La ilaha ila anta Subhanaka Innee Kuntoo min athalimeen’

From Sa’ad bin Abee Waqqas -RadhiAllaahu anhu- who said that the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam  said:

‘The Dua of Yunus when he made Dua whilst in the stomach of the whale:

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنْتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ

‘There is none worthy of worship except You, free are You from imperfection and indeed I am from the oppressors.’ A Muslim person does not make Dua for something except that Allaah answers his Dua.’

[Collected by Tirmidhi, Nisa’ee, al-Hakim & Al-Albaani graded it Saheeh in ‘Saheeh al-Targheeb al-Tarheeb’ no. 1826]

Shaykh ul Islaam Ibn al-Qayyim – Rahimuhullaah- said:

‘As for the Dua of Dhi noon (Yunus), it has from the completion of Tawheed, Negating all deficiencies from Allaah, and the acknowledgment of the worshipper of his own oppression and sin.

It is the most far reaching medication for difficulties, anxiety and grief.

This Dua is the most far reaching means to Allaah -far is He from imperfection – in fulfilment of needs. Indeed, Tawheed and negating all deficiencies from Allaah includes affirming all perfection for Allaah,

Pure from all deficiency, defects and giving a similitude for Allaah’s Characteristics with the characteristics of the creation.

The acknowledgment of the worshipper’s oppression, includes that he has Eeman in the Sharia, reward and punishment.

This Dua obligates a person feeling weak and in a dire need turning to Allaah and requesting Allaah to pardon his mistakes. And acknowledgement with the servitude of worship of Allaah and the great need of a person of his Lord, Here, there are four things with which a closeness and a means occurs: Tawheed, freeing Allaah from imperfection, servitude of worship and acknowledgment.’

[Zaad al-Ma’ad 4/208]

دعــوةُ ذي الـــنُّـون

 

إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سَعْدٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ جَدِّهِ، قَالَ: كُنَّا جُلُوسًا عِنْدَ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، فَقَالَ: «أَلَا أُخْبِرُكُمْ بِشَيْءٍ إِذَا نَزَلَ بِرَجُلٍ مِنْكُمْ كَرِبٌ، أَوْ بَلَاءٌ مِنْ بَلَايَا الدُّنْيَا دَعَا بِهِ يُفَرَّجُ عَنْهُ؟» فَقِيلَ لَهُ: بَلَى، فَقَالَ: ” دُعَاءُ ذِي النُّونِ: لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنْتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ “

 أخرجه الحاكم وقال: ” صحيح الإسناد “. ووافقه الذهبي، وهو كما قالا.

الكتاب: سلسلة الأحاديث الصحيحة وشيء من فقهها وفوائدها 1744 –

وعن سعد بن أبي وقاصٍ رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسولُ الله صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ:

“دعوةُ ذي النون إذْ دَعا وهو في بطنِ الحوتِ: (لا إله إلا أنتَ سبحانك إنِّي كنتُ مِنَ الظالمينَ)؛ فإِنَّه لَمْ يَدْعُ بها رجلٌ مسلمٌ في شيْءٍ قَطُّ، إلا اسْتَجابَ الله لَهُ”.

رواه الترمذي -واللفظ له- والنسائي، والحاكم وقال: “صحيح الإسناد”.

الكتاب: صَحِيحُ التَّرْغِيب وَالتَّرْهِيب 1826 – (7) [صحيح]

قـَالَ الإمـام ابنُ القَيّـم -رَحِمَـهُ الله-:

وَأَمَّا دَعْوَةُ ذِي النُّونِ: فَإِنَّ فِيهَا مِنْ كَمَالِ التَّوْحِيدِ وَالتَّنْزِيهِ لِلرَّبِّ تَعَالَى، وَاعْتِرَافِ الْعَبْدِ بِظُلْمِهِ وَذَنْبِهِ، مَا هُوَ مِنْ أَبْلَغِ أَدْوِيَةِ الْكَرْبِ، وَالْهَمِّ، وَالْغَمِّ، وَأَبْلَغِ الْوَسَائِلِ إِلَى اللَّهِ – سُبْحَانَهُ – فِي قَضَاءِ الْحَوَائِجِ، فَإِنَّ التَّوْحِيدَ وَالتَّنْزِيهَ يَتَضَمَّنَانِ إِثْبَاتَ كُلِّ كَمَالِ اللَّهِ، وَسَلْبَ كُلِّ نَقْصٍ وَعَيْبٍ وَتَمْثِيلٍ عَنْهُ. وَالِاعْتِرَافُ بِالظُّلْمِ

يَتَضَمَّنُ إِيمَانَ الْعَبْدِ بِالشَّرْعِ وَالثَّوَابِ وَالْعِقَابِ، وَيُوجِبُ انْكِسَارَهُ وَرُجُوعَهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَاسْتِقَالَتَهُ عَثْرَتَهُ، وَالِاعْتِرَافَ بِعُبُودِيَّتِهِ، وَافْتِقَارَهُ إِلَى رَبِّهِ، فَهَاهُنَا أَرْبَعَةُ أُمُورٍ قَدْ وَقَعَ التَّوَسُّلُ بِهَا: التَّوْحِيدُ، وَالتَّنْزِيهُ، وَالْعُبُودِيَّةُ، وَالِاعْتِرَافُ.
