Question: What is the meaning of Ya Hayyu Ya Qayyum?
Answer

Sayyiduna Anas ibn Maalik (Radhiallaahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) once mentioned to Sayyiduna Faatima (Radhiallaahu Anha) to recite the following supplication morning and evening,

‘Yaa hayyu yaa qayoomu, birahmatika astagheeth. Aslih liy sha-aniy kulluhu wa laa takilniy ilaa nafsiy tarfata aynin.’

(Translation: On You Who is Ever-living and Sustains and Protects everything, I seek assistance through the means of your mercy, correct for me all my affairs and do not entrust me to my Nafs (myself) for the moment of a blink of an eye.’)

(Mustadrak al-Haakim vol.1 pg.545; Shu’ubul Iemaan of Imaam Bayhaqi Hadith No.:760, 761)

Imaam Haakim and Imaam Dhahabiy have classified this narration as Sahih
(authentic).

Sayyiduna Abdullah ibn Mas’ood (Radhiallaahu Anhu) narrated that whenever Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) used to be afflicted in any worry or concern, he used to recite the following supplication,

‘Yaa Hayy Yaa Qayyoom birahmatika astagheeth.’

(Mustadrak al-Haakim vol.1 pg.509; Shu’ubul Iemaan of Imaam Bayhaqi Hadith No.:10231) Also see Kitaabud Du’aa of Imaam Tabrani pg.47 and Majmauz zawaaid vol.10 pg.147
