Best Islamic Opinion Center: Hi all readers! We all believe that no one wants to have enemies. Maybe we’ve all heard a wise saying, that there are very many enemies, while a thousand are very few. There are many things that will be sacrificed by hostility. But, if there really is a group that is hostile to us, then we must defend ourselves, defend the country, and defend humanity. In this article I will explain the best prayer if we face the enemy.
By the way, do you already know what is the best prayer if we face the enemy? If you don’t know that, then read this article to the end.
As usual, before I explain the best prayer when we face the enemy, I will first quote one hadith that is specifically related to our discussion. The Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam had read the prayer when he faced the enemy. The hadith I mean is as follows;
عَنْ أَنَسٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : كُنَّا مَعَ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فِيْ غَزْوَةٍ , فَلَقِيَ الْعَدُوَّ , فَسَمِعْتُهُ يَقُوْلُ : يَا مَالِكَ يَوْمِ الدِّيْنِ إِيَّاكَ أَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ أَسْتَعِيْنُ . فَلَقَدْ رَأَيْتُ الرِّجَالَ تَصْرَعُ , تَضْرِبُهَا الْمَلَائِكَةُ مِنْ بَيْنِ أَيْدِيْهَا وَمِنْ خَلْفِهَا
From Anas radliyallahu ‘anhu, he said,” We were with the Prophet (Muhammad) in a war. He then met the enemy. I heard him say, “O Lord who rules the Day of Judgment! Only to You I worship and only to You I ask for help.” Indeed, I see his enemies fell down because beaten angels from front and back.”
Now, do you all know what is the best prayer if we face the enemy in the hadith above? The prayer is as follows;
يَا مَالِكَ يَوْمِ الدِّيْنِ إِيَّاكَ أَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ أَسْتَعِيْنُ
O Lord who rules the Day of Judgment! Only to You I worship and only to You I ask for help.”
All Readers! That is a brief explanation of the best prayer when we face the enemy. May Allah always help us in every problem. Amen!
I think that’s enough for this article. May be useful! Amen!
See you next time in the next article!
