DU’AA’ THAT WILL PROTECT ONE FROM FIRE.

DU’AA’ THAT WILL PROTECT ONE FROM FIRE

DU’AA’ THAT WILL PROTECT ONE FROM FIRE

FIRSTLY.

Fire is one of the major calamities from which the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to seek refuge with Allaah and he would ask Allaah to protect him from it and from other calamities.

It was narrated that Abu Al-Yasar said:”The Messenger of Allah [SAW] used to say:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ التَّرَدِّي وَالْهَدْمِ وَالْغَرَقِ وَالْحَرِيقِ وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ أَنْ يَتَخَبَّطَنِي الشَّيْطَانُ عِنْدَ الْمَوْتِ وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ أَنْ أَمُوتَ فِي سَبِيلِكَ مُدْبِرًا وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ أَنْ أَمُوتَ لَدِيغًا

‘Allahumma inni a’udhu bika minat-taraddi, wal-hadmi, wal-gharaqi, wal-hariqi, wa a’udhu bika, an yatakhabbatanish-shaitanu ‘indal-mawti, wa a’udhu bika an amuta fi sabilika mudbiran, wa a’udhu bika an amuta ladigha

(O Allah, I seek refuge with You from being thrown from a high place or crushed beneath a falling wall, or drowning or being burned, and I seek refuge with You from being led astray by the Shaitan at the time of death, and I seek refuge with You from dying in Your cause while fleeing from the battlefield, and I seek refuge with You from dying of a scorpion sting.)'” (Hasan)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 6, Book 50, Hadith 5533)

IMAM HAAKIM SAID :-

Its isnaad is saheeh

(AL-MUSTADRAK 1/713)

IBN HAJAR SAID :-

it is proven.

(BADHAL AL-MA’OON 199)

I do not know of any specific saheeh du’aa’ in the Sunnah that the Muslim may recite so that Allaah might protect him against fire. Rather he should pray to Allaah to protect him from harm and disliked things, and ask Allaah to keep him safe and sound, and seek refuge from the things from which the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to seek refuge, as mentioned in the hadeeth quoted above, for Allaah is the best of protectors and the most merciful of those who show mercy.

SECONDLY.

There is a da’eef hadeeth about protection from fire and other calamities,

It was narrated that Talq ibn Habeeb said: A man came to Abu’l-Darda’ (may Allaah be pleased with him) and said: O Abu’l-Darda’, your house has burned down. He said: It has not burned down. I know that Allaah would not do that because of some words that I heard from the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him); whoever says them at the beginning of the day, no calamity will befall him until evening comes, and whoever says them at the end of the day, no calamity will befall him until morning comes: “O Allaah, You are my Lord, there is no god but You, in You have I put my trust and You are the Lord of the Mighty Throne. Whatever Allaah wills happens, and whatever He does not will does not happen. There is no power and no strength except with Allaah, the Most High, the Almighty. I know that Allaah has power over all things and that Allaah has encompassed all things with His knowledge. O Allaah, I seek refuge with You from the evil of my own self, and from the evil of every living creature whose forelock is in Your hand. My Lord is on a straight path.”

IBN AL-JAWZI SAID :-

This hadeeth is not proven, and the problem with it is (the narrator) al-Aghlab ibn Tameem, of whom Yahya ibn Ma’een said: He is nothing. Al-Bukhaari said: His hadeeth is munkar

(AL-‘ILAL AL-MUTANAAHIYAH 2/836, 837)

IMAM DAHABI SAID :-

al-Aghlab ibn Tameem is munkarul Hadith.

(TALKHIS ULAL MUNTAHA 305)

NOTE :-

This hadeeth was also narrated via another isnaad with similar wording. It was narrated by al-Haarith ibn Abi Usaamah in his Musnad (2/953). He said: Yazeed ibn Haroon told us: Mu’aadh Abu ‘Abd-Allaah told us: A man narrated it to me from al-Hasan. This is a weak isnaad because the man who narrated it from al-Hasan is unknown.

THIRDLY.

If Allaah decrees that a fire should occur, then some scholars regard it as mustahabb to say takbeer whilst putting it out, and they say that saying takbeer at the time of a fire will help in extinguishing it and prevent its harm. A hadeeth concerning that was narrated

Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas, saying that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “If you see a fire, then say takbeer, for takbeer will extinguish it.”

IMAM DARAQUTNI SAID :-

Munkar.

(TALKHIYAT ILAL MUJRIHIN 220)

IMAM SUYUTI SAID :-

Daeef.

(JAAMI AL-SAGHEER 641)

IMAM ALBANI SAID :-

Daeef.

(DAEEF AL-JAAMI 504, AL-KALIM AL-TAYYIB 222)

IBN AL-QAYYIM SAID :-

Because a fire is caused by the substance of the shaytaan from which he was created, and it causes some general destruction which befits the shaytaan and his substance and actions, the shaytaan helped with it and played some role in it, fire by its very nature seeks to dominate and destroy. These two matters – domination of the earth and destruction – are the way of the shaytaan to which he calls people, and by means of which he destroys the sons of Adam. Fire and the shaytaan both seek to dominate on earth and spread corruption and destruction, but the might of the Lord, may He be glorified and exalted, suppresses the shaytaan and his actions. Hence magnifying Allaah (by saying takbeer) has an effect in extinguishing fires, for nothing can resist the might of Allaah, may He be glorified and exalted. When the Muslim magnifies his Lord, his takbeer has the effect of suppressing the fire and the shaytaan who is made of its substance, so the fire is extinguished. We ourselves and others have tried this, and we have found it to be so. And Allaah knows best.

(ZAAD AL-MA’AAD 4/194)

Allah knows best.
