Du`a Before Eating

أَشهَدُ أنْ لا إلَهَ إلاَّ الله وَأشْهَدُ أنَّ مُحَمَّداً عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ – أستَغِفرُ اَلَله العَظِيم 3× فَإِن تَوَلَّوْاْ فَقُلْ حَسْبِيَ اللّهُ لا إِلَـهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ عَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ وَهُوَ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ إِلى شَرَفِ النَبِي صَلى الله عَليه وَ سَلَم وَآلِهِ وَأصحَابِهِ الكِرام، وَإلى أروَاحِ آَبائِنا وَأمَهاتَنا وَ حَضَرَةَِ أُستَاذِنَا وَأُستاذِ أُستاذِنا والصِدَيقِيين اَلفَاتِحَة  

Ash-hadu an la ilaha illa-Allah wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan `abduhu wa-rasuluhu

Astaghfirullaahu ‘l-`Azheem (3x)

Fa in tawallaw faqul hasbiy-Allaahu laa ilaaha illa Huuw `alayhi tawakaltu wa Huuwa rabbu ‘l-`arshi ‘l-`Azheem

Ila sharafi ‘n-Nabee sall-Allaahu `alayhi wa sallam, wa aalihi wa ashaabihi ‘l-kiraam wa ila arwaahi abaa’ina wa ummahaatinaa wa hadarati ustaadhinaa wa ustaadhi ustaadhinaa wa ‘s-siddiqeen al-faatiha. 

I bear witness that there is no god but Allah and I bear witness that Muhhammad is His Slave and Messenger

I ask forgiveness from Allah (3x)

But if they turn away, Say: “Allah is sufficient for me: there is no god but He: in Him I place my trust – and He is the Lord of the Throne Supreme.”

We send this (as an offering) to the Honored Prophet, upon whom be Allah’s peace and blessings, to his family and his companions; and to the souls of our fathers, our mothers, our venerated teachers and the teachers of our teachers, and the veracious ones. (Recite) Surat al-Fatiha.

Du`a After Eating

الحَمدُ للهِ الَذي أَطعمنَا وَسَقانَا وَجعلنا مٌسلِمين، الحَمدٌ لله حَمدا يٌوافِي نِعمَهُ وَيُكافي مَزيدَه كَما يَنبَغِي لِجَلالِ وَجهِكَ العَظِيم يَا الله، نِعمَة جَليل الله بَرَكَة خَلِيل الله شَفاعَة يَا رَسُولُ الله، اَللهُمَ أَكرِم صَاحِب هَذا الطَعام وَالآكلِين، اَللهم زِد وِ لَا تُقَلِل إِلى شَرَفِ النَبي صَلى الله عليه وَ سَلَم وآلِهِ وأَصحَابِهِ الكِرَام وَ حَضَرَةِ أُستَاذِنا وَأُستَاذِ أُستَاذنَا وَالصِديقِيين ربنا تقبل منا بحرمة سر سورة الفاتحة.

Alhamdulillaahi ‘lladhee at`amanaa wa saqaanaa wa j`alanaa muslimeena. Alhamdulillaah hamdan yuwaafi ni`amahu wa yukaafi mazeedahu kamaa yanbaghee li-jalaali wajhika ‘l-`azheem yaa Allah, ni`ma jaleelullah, barakat khaleelullah, shafa`at yaa Rasuulullah. Allaahuma ‘krim saahib hadhaa-t-t`am wa ‘l-aakileen. Allaahuma zid wa laa tuqallil ila sharafi ‘n-Nabee sall-Allaahu `alayhi wa sallam, wa aalihi wa ashaabihi ‘l-kiraam wa ila arwaahi abaa’ina wa ummahaatinaa wa hadarati ustaadhinaa wa ustaadhi ustaadhinaa wa ‘s-siddiqeen.

Rabbanaa taqabbal minna bi-hurmati sirri suuratu ‘l-fatiha

Praise be to Allah who fed us, who quenched our thirst, who made us to be Muslims. Praise be to Allah, a praise such that it equals to His favors, and meets His increase (of His favors); a praise which is adequate to the magnificence of your Magnificent Countenance. Grant us the favors of the mighty one of Allah, the blessing of the intimate friend of Allah, the intercession of the Messenger of Allah. Oh Allah honor the owner of this food and those who are eating from it. Oh Allah increase and do not diminish. We send this as an offering to the Honored Prophet, upon whom be Allah’s peace and blessings, to his family and his companions; and to the souls of our fathers, our mothers, our venerated teachers and the teachers of our teachers, and the veracious ones. (Recite) Surat al-Fatiha.
