Benefilts Of Reciting Ahad Nama

As-salaamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu
As-salaatu wasalaamu alaika Yaa Rasul Allah sallallahu alaihi wasallam

Translation of ‘Ahd Namah (Promise to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala)

O Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala! The Creator of the skies and the earth
The Knower of the hidden and the open
Your are The Beneficent, The Merciful

O Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala! I promise you in this earthly life
and I bear witness that
that there is no one worthy of worship except You
You are One and Only without any partner
and I bear witness that
Sayyidina Hazrat Muhammad Sallallahu alaihi wa Sallam
is Your servant and Your Messenger

(O Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala!) Please do not leave me to my own self
Because if You abandon me to my own desires
I might be drawn towards evil and away from goodness
and I have no support except Your Mercy

So accept my promise with You
to be kept till the Day of Judgement
Truly, You never break a promise

And may the blessings of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala, The Exalted
be on his best creation
Sayyidina Hazrat Muhammad Sallallahu alaihi wa Sallam
and on his family and all companions

(O Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala! Accept this prayer)
With Your Mercy, O The Most Merciful of those who show mercy.

Wa’alaykum ‘Assalam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu

Sayyidina Rasuli Akram Sall Allahu alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallim said : “Whoever recites this Ahad Naamah one in his lifetime, he will be taken away with Imaan [true faith] in his heart.” And Rasulullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallim says that he guarantees that this person will go to Jannah [Paradise]. Hazrat Jaabir Rathia Allahu anh says that he heard Rasulullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallim say: ” Man has three thousand [3000] types of diseases in his body, One thousand of these diseases doctors have medicine for and they can treat these. two thousand are such that there is no medicine to cure them. Whoever will keep this Ahad Naamah with them Allah [Subhaana Hoo] will save him from the two thousand [2000] diseases. Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddiq Radi Allahu anhu says, ” Whoever keeps this Ahad Naamah with him will be safe from snakes and scorpions, and magic will have no effect on him and people who think bad of him will not be able to say anything bad about him. Hazrat Khaatuna Jannat Radi Allahu ta ‘ala anhaa says she heard Sayyidina Rasuli Akram Sall Allahu alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallim say: “Whoever will use this Ahad Naamah in a time of difficulty his need will be fulfilled”. Whoever will write this Ahad Naamah with Misk [musk] and Zafran [saffron] and drinks it, washing it with water, his aql [intelligence] will improve, and whoever memorizes it or some of it and whatever he memorizes he does not forget, that will also help his memory.
Hazrat Amir ul Mu’mineen [the isnaad doesn’t say which] Radi Allahu anhu says that whoever reads this Ahad Naamah and give the thawaab to someone who is deceased, the grave of such a person will be lighted from east to west. If someone puts it in the grave, the deceased person will get the thawaab of Prophets. When Munkar and Nakir [the questioning angels] come to question him their questions will be made easy on such a person. Allah Subhaana Hoo will take the Athaab [chastisement] away from his grave one lakh yards [one hundred thousand] to the right, forty thousand yards to the left, forty thousand yards from his head and forty thousand yards from his feet. The grave will be so wide that the eye will not be able to comprehend.

Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala has given this property to this Ahad Naamah, If it is kept in a grave on Yawm ul Qiyaamah [the Day of Standing] the person will rise from the grave as if it is an angel and he will wear the garments of Jannah [Paradise]. He will have Buraaq for riding and Allah Subhaana Hoo will say to this person: “I have an Ahad [covenant] with you that you will be happy because you read this Ahad Naamah in the world every day. I am going to fulfill this promise today and I am going to put a crown on your head and I am going to give you the garments of Jannah. I am going to give you Buraaq to ride on. There will be no questioning from you and you will be sent to Jannah without any chastisement and I will also forgive any person who you ask me to forgive.” And he will be sent to Jannah in this manner. His face will be lit like the full moon on the fourteenth night. The people of Mizaan ul Hashr will say that this person must be a prophet or a Wali or one of the Salihoon. The Angels guarding Jannah will say: ” No, this person is not a Prophet, he is just a slave of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala from the Ummah of Rasulullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallim. The only reason his face is lit like this and why he is wearing the garments of Jannah is because he used to keep the Ahad Naamah with him and this is the Noor and Barakah of this Ahad Naamah, that he is in this blessed position.” The people will say: “We were in the world for such and such a time. It is sad that we did not use Ahad Naamah at that time, and we were sort of away from it.”
