Sunnah 67: Supplication at the conclusion of gathering

June 26, 2010

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The Prophet (pbuh) said: “Whoever sits in a gathering and indulges in useless talk and before getting up supplicates:

سبحانك اللهم وبحمدك، أشهد أن لا اله إلا أنت، أستغفرك وأتوب إليك

Subhaanaka Allaahumma wa bihamdik, ash-hadu anlaa ilaaha illaa Ant, astaghfiruka wa atoobu ilayk

O Allah, You are free from every imperfection; praise be to You. I testify that there is no true god except You; I ask Your Pardon and turn to You in repentance

he will be forgiven for in that assembly.” [Tirmidhi]

The Prophet (pbuh) would recite this supplication at the end of every assembly to teach Muslims how to gain more rewards and to beseech Allah to forgive the lapses which they might have inadvertently committed during the course of a general conversation. There is no indication in the hadith that he (pbuh) himself used to engage in idle talk while he was with his Companions (ra).

Of course, we should not intend to engage in idle, but as we are human and will forget, we should recite this du’a after sincerely so that we may be forgiven inshAllah.
