The Supplication of Jibril


Ibn Abu Dunya reports in Kitab Ad-Dhikr on the authority of Anas ibn Malik that Ubayy ibn Ka’ab entered the masjid to pray and praise Allah (the Exalted) praises that no one praised him by. When they prayed and sat to praise and exalt Allah they heard a loud voice behind them it said,

“O Allah to you belongs all praise; to you belongs all the dominion; you possess all good; to you all matters return; to you all matters return public and secret; truly you have power over all things. Forgive my sins that I have done; protect me from them for the rest of my life; give me pure actions that please you and accept my repentance.”

اللهم لك الحمد كله ولك الملك كله و بيدك الخير كله وإليك يرجع الأمر كله و إليك يرجع الأمر كله علانيته وسره لك الحمد إنك على كل شيء قدير اغفر لي ما مضى من ذنوبي و اعصمني فيما بقي من عمري و ارزقني أعمالا زاكية ترضى بها عني وتب علي

The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bestow peace and blessings upon him) came and was told what occurred. He said, “That was Jibril (upon him peace).”
