“…O Allah, Master of the Kingdom! You gives the kingdom to whomsoever You pleases and takes away the kingdom from whomsoever You pleases, and You exalts whom You pleases and abases whom You pleases in Your hand is the good; surely, You have power over all things. You makes the night to pass into the day and You makes the day to pass into the night, and You brings forth the living from the dead and You brings forth the dead from the living, and You gives sustenance to whom You pleases without measure.”

(Surah Aal-e-Imran, 3:26-27)

Sovereignty belongs to Allah. He is the Sole & Ultimate Authority in domains of creations and legislations. Everything is created by Him, so to total submission to His Will is Islam, which has been described in these verses in the form of prayer. The Holy Prophet and his Ahlulbayt have rightly advised the believers to recite this prayer at all occasions, so that the conviction in the omnipotence of the Almighty

Lord permeates their hearts and minds guide them in all their physical and mental activities.

A complete resignati to Allah’s will is possible only when man believes that it is Allah who alone can do and undo things, conceivable and inconceivable, in easy and diffi   The then grace of the Lord abounds, because in his hands is all good. There should be no complaint, nor grudge, nor frustrati With total resignati to his will, man must pray and invoke his mercy to obtain fulfi     t of his/her legiti   te wants and needs.

He (Allah) and He alone, and no one else bestows upon whom so ever he chooses, the power to exercise the authority, in this world, or in the hereafter. To some he gives power in this world though many of them do not follow his commandments. He must not get confused. It is not our look out because our knowledge of things, persons and events is hopelessly very little.

He knows why he has done so. Abdullah Ibne Abbas said that this may verse may contain the great name of Allah, Ism-e-Aazam. If this dua is recited with realization of its meaning, the realization of his absolute sovereignty and his exclusive rights and option, Allah will fullfil the legitimate desires of the reciter of this dua.

Not to be proud and arrogant after achieving success, in this world, recite this dua regularly.

According to the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) whoso recites these verses daily after Fajr salaat, gets suffi t means to livelihood. Also the reciter gets enough funds to repay loans. To discard nervousness in big public gatherings, or if there is fear of insult or harm at the ti

of meeti      a person or a group of persons recite this dua.
