Hadith Related To Allahumma Aslih Li Deeni
One of the hadeeths reported by the author of Riyadus Saliheen, may Allah shower blessings on him, in the chapter of the virtues of supplication is this hadeeth of Aboo Hurayrah, may Allah be pleased with him.
He narrated that the Prophet SAW used to say:
O Allah, make my religion easy for me by virtue of which my affairs are protected, set right for me my world where my life exists, make good for me my Hereafter which is my resort to which I have to return, and make my life prone to perform all types of good, and make death a comfort for me from every evil.

So, he, SAW started with religion by saying:
Allahumma Slihlee Deenee Alladhee huwa ‘Ismatu ‘Amree (O Allah, make my religion easy for me by virtue of which my affairs are protected).
That is, He should set it right by granting it sincerity and correctness. Religion is that with which one protects himself from evil and protects himself from enemies.
This is because whenever a person enhances his religion, he will be protected from every evil.
Rectification in the religion can be achieved through sincerity to Allah and following the examples of the Prophet SAW.
The religion of anyone who associates partners with Allah is not good.
Likewise, the deeds of whoever observes Prayer, gives out charity, fasts, recites the Qur’aan, remembers Allah, seeks for knowledge or partake in Jihad to show-off are not valid and good, and they will be rejected.
This is based on the saying of Allah, the most High, in a Hadeeth Qudsee:
“I am so Self Sufficient that I am in no need of having any partners. Thus whosoever does an action for the sake of someone else as well as Mine will have that action rejected by Me to him whom he associated with Me”Hadith Qudsi
Similarly, there is no protection for an innovator as he is not secured from evil: rather, what he has fallen into is evil.
The Prophet said: “Every innovation is misguidance, and every misguidance is hell-fire.”
If an innovator remembers Allah, praises Him and glorifies Him and prays in an unlegislated manner, his actions will be rejected.
Satan may beautify an act of worship for a person until his heart becomes soft, full of awe, and he may even cry, but such action will not benefit him if it is an innovation.
Rather it will be rejected. Do you not see the Christians who would come to the church, cry and show greater devotion even than some Muslims?
Notwithstanding, this will not benefit them because they are upon misguidance.
Similar to this is the case of the people of innovation especially the Soofees.
We see them engaging in a lot of remembrance of Allah, they remember Allah, cry with devotion and their hearts are soft.
But all of these will not benefit them because they are not in compliance with the legislation of Allah. The Prophet SAW said:
“Whoever introduces anything in this affair of ours what is not part of it will be rejected.”
And “Whoever does an action that we have not asked anyone to do it, the action will be rejected.”
So “O Allah! make my religion easy for me” enhance it by making it sincere and correct.
His word, “by virtue of which my affairs are protected” means, that which I seek protection with from evil, trials and similar tribulations.“
Set right for me my world where my life exists”:
The world is the place one resides till death.
Though it is not a permanent abode; where are those who have stayed in this world permanently? Where are the kings and their children? Where are the rich, poor, the archeologists, leaders?
They have gone and passed into tales and you will alsobecome tales one day.
A wise poet said:
While one is in it as a source of information # Until he is considered as one of the tales.
He holds a lot of information at the moment: such and such happened, so and so died and so and so was born, but he will also become news.
Today, we are talking about our scholars, colleagues, brothers and fathers in tales as if they never existed in this world, as if they were dreams. So also, you will become.
The world is just a place to rest for a while, not a permanent abode.
But if a person is granted success to attain righteousness in it and makes it beneficial to the Hereafter, how excellent it is! If it is the other way, such that he acts only for the sake of the world, and not for the Hereafter, then he has lost in this world and the Hereafter – and refuge is sought with Allah.
Thus, the Prophet SAW said: “where my life exists” alone: a place where someone will reside and pass away.“
Make good for me my Hereafter which is my resort to which I have to return”:
The Hereafter is the final abode and there is no escape from it.
Allah, Blessed is He and the most High, said:“
Say (O Muhammad): (Yes) verily, those of old, and those of later time. All will surely be gathered together for appointed Meeting of a known Day.”
Allah will gather the first and the last; they will all be assembled on a single plain on the Day of Resurrection.
Allah, the most High, said:
“That is a Day whereon mankind will be gathered together, and that is a Day when all (the dwellers of the heavens and the earth) will be present. And We delay it only for a term (already) fixed.(Surah 11 Verses 103-104)
For a term fixed (Madood) and He did not say for a term extended (Mamdood). Rather, He, the Mighty and Sublime, said: Madood (fixed).
Everything will perish speedily except Him. This day is the Madood of everyone.
A wise poet said:
Every one born of a woman, even if his fitness lasts long One day, he will be carried on a bier, Each and every one of us will be carried on a bier irrespective of how long we live in this world.
In the alternative, we may be consumed by fire, die in a desert, eaten by a wild animal or drowned in the ocean and eaten by fishes; we do not know.
The important point is that every person is heading towards the Hereafter, so he SAW said:
“Make good for me my Hereafter which is my resort to which I have to return.”
Goodness of the Hereafter is for Allah to save you from the punishment of the hell fire and admit you into Paradise.
We ask Allah to grant you and me goodness in the Hereafter.
And make my life prone to perform all types of good, and make death a comfort for me from every evil”.
If a person is aided in this world, he will be increasing in goodness everyday; he will gain righteous deeds and will sense this himself.
You will notice that he will be happy when he does righteous deeds and he will say:“
All the praises and thanks be to Allah, who has guided us to this and never could we have found guidance, were it not that Allah had guided us!(Surah 7 verses 43).
He will be developing everyday: he will observe Prayer, praise Allah, the Most High, recite the Qur’aan, enjoin good and forbid evil, meethis brother with a cheerful face and perform other numerous good deeds.
Whenever a person grows and develops well in his life, the life is good. Hence, it is reported in a hadeeth: “The best of you is one who has long life and is of good conduct.
And make death a comfort for me from every evil.”
Death is the expiration of life. But the Prophet SAW prayed that Allah – Glorious is He and the most High – should make death a safety for him from all evils because no one knows what will afflict him in this world.
One may stay in this world for a long time and end up deteriorating, and refuge is with Allah, and his religion becomes corrupted.
He may stay in this world and witness great trials to the extent that he will say:
Woe unto me! I wish my mother had not given birth to me! Woe unto me! I wish I had died before now and become something forgotten and out of sight.
But the death that Allah decreed for him is a safety from all evils.
Consequently, the Prophet SAW used to supplicate with his invocation: and make death a comfort for me from every evil”.
Therefore, O my brother, always say this invocation.
