In the name of Allah the most Beneficent, the Merciful,
O Allah I beseech Thee for the causes of Thy Mercy the right of Thy pardon: safety from every sin; the benefit from every virtue; salvation from (Hell) Fire and every Calamity; achievement of the Paradise and (Thy) Pleasure in the abode of peace; and the proximity of thy prophet Mohammed and his purified progeny peace be on all of them. O Allah! Whatever bounties we have all are from Thee there is no deity except Thee; I beseech Thy forgiveness and turn unto thee.
An authentic hadith relates that the Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W.) stated, “If a person recites the following dua 10 times while sitting in the Tashahudd position, then for each time ten rewards are written for him and ten sins are removed from the Name-Amal and he will be saved from every evil thing and the accursed Satan and no other sin besides shirk will be able to destroy him. In relation to actions, he will be superior to all other people. If anyone recites more than the above, he will go further and that is a different matter.
لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ بِيَدِهِ الْخَيْرُ يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٍ
“Besides Allah there is no other worthy of worship. He is Alone and has no partner. His is the Kingdom and to Him is all praise, in His hands is good, He gives and takes life (gives death) and He has power overall things”.
