Translation of ‘Ahd Namah
(Promise to Allah)

In the Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful

O Allah! The Creator of the skies and the earth
The Knower of the hidden and the open
Your are The Beneficent, The Merciful

O Allah! I promise you in this earthly life
and I bear witness that
that there is no one worthy of worship except You
You are One and Only without any partner
and I bear witness that
Sayyidina Hazrat Muhammad Sallallahu alaihi wa Sallam
is Your servant and Your Messenger

(O Allah!) Please do not leave me to my own self
Because if You abandon me to my own desires
I might be drawn towards evil and away from goodness
and I have no support except Your Mercy

So accept my promise with You
to be kept till the Day of Judgement
Truly, You never break a promise

And may the blessings of Allah, The Exalted
be on his best creation
Sayyidina Hazrat Muhammad Sallallahu alaihi wa Sallam
and on his family and all companions

(O Allah! Accept this prayer)
With Your Mercy, O The Most Merciful of those who show mercy.

    Respected sir i asked one of hafiz about ahad nama but he told not to read ahadnama then told read only which is in Holy Quran and he does not know about ahadnama , in which of the version does ahadnama comes in Holy Quran Or Hadees please reply me

      Walaikum Assalam, wa rahmatullahe wa barkatuhu wa maghfiratuhu,

      Brother i have just put ahad nama here, for the reference. I dont know hadith regarding it. But if you see, its like a dua, so nothing wrong if u recite.


    • To Ismail Sait,
      Ask that hafiz, “Which part of the Quran does Dua Qanoot come from? It is not in the Quran!” Yet we have to read Dua Qanoot in Witr Salaat. Keep away from such ignorant hafiz.


    • Posted by Abu Hashem Malick on March 17, 2013 at 7:19 pm

      Hmmm. Let’s see who is ignorant here.

      Ismail Sait said: “…in which of the version does ahadnama comes in Holy Quran Or Hadees please reply me”?

      The derogatory reply he was given by meemconnection is an insult to a common sense Muslim. Qanoot is not in Quraan but came from a man about whom there is not an iota of doubt that he was 100% confirmed Rasool Allaah and, just as Allaah, Azza wa Jall, says in His Complete Book, that in matter of deen, he says nothing on his own except with His permission and is inspired by Him.

      Now come again and explain who had the Wahee after Rasool Allaah who was given this “Ahad Nama”?

    I have gone through English translation of Ahadnama and do not find any thing contrary to quran or hadish. I too had reservation about it earlier but after going through the meanings of it, I do not find any thing wrong in it. It is a good dua

    As-salaamu ‘Alaikum

    Here are some references

    This collection of Isnaads for Dua is taken from a booklet in Urdu entitled ‘ Ganjeena Akbaari’ published Kutub Khaana ‘ Ishaatul Islaam. These Du’a may also be found in the well known book ‘Faqri Majmu’a Wazaa’eef’ as well as in the books ‘Yazdah Surah Shaeef’, and ‘Majmu’a Wazaa’eef’. The Isnaads found in this booklet [presently in your hands] are English renderings of isnaads found in Ganjeena Akbaari although Isnaads for these Dua are also found in the above cited works as well some what in greater detail.

    Now I am confused for sure! I read Ahadnama everyday and few more doa’s from a book but not sure whether they are quoted from Quran. How can I check the autheticity of the doa’s I read. Specially the Darud’s.


  16. Posted by ADEEL AHMED on February 10, 2012 at 2:24 pm

    Dua… Dosen’t mean it should be from Quran or Siah Sitta i.e. 6 Quatub e Hadees – Bukhari, Muslim, Nasai, Ibne Maza, Mahfoom Tabrani & Tirmizi. All is to Arabic Language….

    If any person ask ALLAH (SWT) anything in Arabic Language… & anyone can say that it a Dua…. But my friend its our responsibility to know Arabic Language…. Because by this we all will clearly understand what we are saying…..

    Please All…. Always ask ALLAH (SWT) for anything in Arabic Language… Because its the best language nearest to ALLAH.


    • Adeel, you are right in that Arabic is the best language for Dua for the Muslims, but it does not mean we cannot say Dua in our native language.

      22 And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the variations in your languages and your colors: verily in that are Signs for those who know. (Quran: Surat 30, Ar Room)

      Did Allah not send 124,000 Messengers give or take? None of them spoke Arabic except the Final Messenger, our Nabee Muhammad sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam.
      Yet Allah chose the 124,000 Messengers and answered their prayers in their own languages.

      Therefore if we can express ourselves in the Ajmee (non-Arabic) language, even that is acceptable to Allah.

      What is Dua? It is Dal, Ayn, Alif and Hamza. All Allah wants is for us to acknowledge that He is Daiem (Dal) the One who will exist forever. He created us from Alaq (Ayn) from a clot. We have to Iqra (Alif) Read n the Name of our Rabb, our praise of Him and pray to Him. Hamza is for Alahi Salaam, which is mentioned after the name of every Messenger of Allah, like Hazrat Adam alaihi salaam, Hazrat Nuh alaihi salaam, Hazrat Ibraheem alaihi salaam, Hazrat Musa alaihi salaam, Hazrat Isa alaihi salaam…
      Allah accepted their prayers which were not in Arabic!

      Therefore, Dua is any praise of Allah in any language, it is accepted by Allah. Dua is not necessarily an Ayat from the Quran, it is a praise and acknowledgement that Allah is our Rabb and we ask him in the best way we know how, so that He may answer our prayers.

      As Allah’s Rasool, Sayyidina Muhammad sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam himself said:

      “O Allah, I seek refuge in You for Your Pleasure and against Your Wrath, and in Your Forgiveness and against Your Punishment and in You from You, I cannot Praise You as You can Praise Yourself.” (Muslim, Abu Dawood, at-Tirmidhi, ibn Majah)

      Even with the Arabic language, Allah’s Rasool said: “I cannot Praise You as You can Praise Yourself.”

      To answer Mehbuba: From the above it should be clear, that there is no need for authenticity in Dua. Dua is any PRAISE of Allah, likewise Darood is sending Blessings / Salaam on Sayyidina Muhammad sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam.

      If we truly ask Allah for our needs in any language by PRAISING Him, insha Allah, Allah will accept our Dua.

      Only Allah Knows Best – Wallahu Alim.
