Dua to be Recited at the Approach of Ramadaan
Hazrat Ubaadah bin Saamit Radiyallahu Anhu narrates that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam used to teach the Sahaba Radiyallahu Anhum the following Dua at the approach of the Month of Ramadaan :
اَللَّهُمَّ سَلِّمْنِيْ لِرَمَضَانَ وَسَلِّمْ رَمَضَانَ لِيْ وَسَلِّمْهُ لِيْ مُتَقَبَّلاً
Allahumma Sallimnee Liramadaana Wa Sallim Ramadaana Lee Wa Sallimhu Mutaqabbala
“O Allah! Safeguard me for the Month of Ramadaan (by making me see the Month of Ramadaan healthy and fit so that I can take maximum benefit from it), and safeguard the Month of Ramadaan for me (by making the conditions in it such that I can take maximum benefit from it) and accept it from me.” ~ Kanzul-‘Ummal
Every Muslim should endeavor to memorize this dua and recite it in abundance in these few days before Ramadaan.
