Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Question

Is the following du’a from an authentic Hadith?

اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ خَلَقْتَنِي، وَأَنْتَ تَهْدِينِي، وَأَنْتَ تُطْعِمُنِي، وَأَنْتَ تَسْقِينِي، وَأَنْتَ تُمِيتُنِي، وَأَنْتَ تُحْيِينِي

 

Answer

Yes, this is recorded in the following narration reported on the authority of Sayyiduna Samurah ibn Jundub (radiyallahu ‘anhu) who heard this Hadith multiple times from Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), Sayyiduna Abu Bakr and Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma):

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Whomsoever recites the following in the morning and evening will be granted whatever he asks of Allah:

اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ خَلَقْتَنِي، وَأَنْتَ تَهْدِينِي، وَأَنْتَ تُطْعِمُنِي، وَأَنْتَ تَسْقِينِي، وَأَنْتَ تُمِيتُنِي، وَأَنْتَ تُحْيِينِي

Allahumma anta khalaqtani wa anta tahdini wa anta tut’imuni wa anta tasqini wa anta tumituni wa anta tuhyini

(Al Mu’jamul Awsat, Hadith: 1032)

 

‘Allamah Mundhiri and ‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahumallah) have declared the chain sound (hasan).

(Targhib, vol. 1 pg. 458, Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 10 pg. 118. Also see: Al I’ilam Bi Sunnatihi ‘alayhis salam; Sharhu Sunan Ibn Majah of ‘Allamah Mughlatai, vol. 3 pg. 407, under Hadith: 530)

 

Translation

O Allah! You have created me, You guide me, You feed me, You give me drink, You will cause me to die and You will resurrect me.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
