Meaning of dua supplication
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: pLEASE TELL ME THIS IS DUA FROM HADEES? IF YES FROM WHICH HADEES? PLS tell me the HADEES ,WHICH IS RELATED TO THIS DUA.
To the best of our knowledge we have neither come across nor heard of any dua or hadith in the authentic and established Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) with this combination of phrases: ……,,,,,,"ALLAHU HAFIZUN LATIFUN QADIMUN AZLIYUN HAYYUN QAYYUMUN LAAYAMANU."
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 7 Surah Aaraaf verse 180:
180 The Most Beautiful Names all belong to Allah: so call on Him by them.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 17 Surah Israa verse 110:
110 Say: "Call upon Allah or call upon ‘Ar-Rahmaan;: by whatever Name ye call upon Him (it is well): for to Him belong the Most Beautiful Names. Neither speak thy prayer aloud nor speak it in a low tone, but seek a middle course between."
Ibn Mas'ud reported that the Prophet (saws), said, "If any servant of Allah afflicted with distress or grief makes this supplication, his supplication will be accepted: 'O Allah, I am Your servant, son of Your servant, son of your maidservant. My forehead is in Your hand. Your command conceming me prevails, and Your decision concerning me is just. I call upon You by every one of the Beautiful Names by which You have described Yourself, or which You have revealed in Your book, or have taught anyone of Your creatures, or which You have chosen to keep in the knowledge of the unseen with You, to make the Qur'an the delight of my heart, the light of my breast, and remover of my griefs, sorrows, and afflictions'." A supplication in these words will be answered. Allah will remove one's affliction and replace it with joy and happiness.
Beloved Brother in Islam, one may and should call upon their Lord Most High by His Noble and Exclusive Names and Attributes whenever one wills and for whatever lawful one wills and desires. No supplication made by a believer is ever left unheard or unanswered by the Lord Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 186:
And if My servants ask you, O Prophet, concerning Me, tell them that I am quite near to them. I hear and answer the prayer of the suppliant, when he calls on Me. So let them respond to My call and believe in Me. (Convey this to them), perhaps they may be guided aright!
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
