A du’a seeking protection from doubt


What is the level of authenticity of this narration?

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الشَّكِّ فِي الْحَقِّ بَعْدَ الْيَقِينِ



Imams Ibn Abi Shaybah and Abu Nu’aym Al Asbahani (rahimahumallah) have recorded this du’a of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).

(Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 29754 with slight variation in the wording and Tarikh Asbahan: 1376, 1509)


Shaykh Muhammad ‘Awwamah (hafizahullah) has pointed out a weak narrator that appears in both chains.


Transliteration and translation

Allahumma inni a’udhu bika minash shakki fil haqqi ba’dal yaqin

O Allah! I seek Your protection from having doubt [in Din] after being certain/convinced


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
