Dua Hizbul Bahr is a powerful supplication that was taught by the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to his companion Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him). The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: \"Whoever recites it, Allah will grant him safety from every calamity in this world and the hereafter.\" [^1^]
Dua Hizbul Bahr means \"the prayer of the sea\" and it contains verses from the Quran and praises of Allah. It is a comprehensive dua that covers various aspects of life, such as protection, guidance, forgiveness, provision, health, success, and more. It is also a dua for traveling, especially by sea, as it invokes Allah's help against the dangers of the ocean.
To recite Dua Hizbul Bahr, one should first perform ablution and face the Qibla. Then, one should recite the following dua with sincerity and devotion:
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
La ilaha illa Allahu wahdahu la sharika lahu lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu yuhyi wa yumitu wa huwa ala kulli shayin qadir
There is no god but Allah, He is One and has no partner. His is the dominion and His is the praise. He gives life and causes death and He has power over everything.
La ilaha illa Allahu wahdahu la sharika lahu anjaza wa'dahu wa nasara abdahu wa hazamal ahzaba wahdahu
There is no god but Allah, He is One and has no partner. He fulfilled His promise and gave victory to His servant and defeated the confederates alone.
La ilaha illa Allahu wahdahu sakhkhara lana hadha wa ma kunna lahu muqrinin
There is no god but Allah, He is One. He has subdued for us this (sea) and we were not capable of it.
Wa inna ila rabbina lamunqalibun
And indeed we are returning to our Lord.
Allahumma antas salamu wa minkas salamu wa ilayka yarjius salamu hayyina rabbana bis salami wa adkhilna daras salami tabarakta rabbana wa ta'alayta ya zal jalali wal ikram
O Allah, You are Peace and from You comes peace and to You returns peace. O our Lord, keep us alive with peace and enter us into the abode of peace. Blessed are You, our Lord, and Exalted. O Possessor of Majesty and Honor.
Allahumma inni as'aluka khayra hadhal yawmi fat-hahu wa nasrahu wa nurahu wa barakatahu wa huda hu wa a'uzu bika min sharri ma fihi wa sharri ma ba'dahu
O Allah, I ask You for the good of this day: its opening, its victory, its light, its blessing, its guidance. And I seek refuge in You from the evil of this day and the evil that follows it.
Allahumma inni a'uzu bika min sharri nafsi wa min sharri kulli da'bbatin anta akhidhun binasiyatiha inn rabbi ala siratim mustaqim
O Allah, I seek refuge in You from the evil of myself and from the evil of every creature that You have control over its forelock. Indeed my Lord is on a straight path.
Allahumma inni abduka ibnu abdika ibnu amatika na'siyati bi yadika ma'din fiyya hukmuka adlun fi 0efd9a6b88
