Allahumma izzal islama wal muslimeen is a Dua for Muslim ummah in Arabic. A lot of Imam and scholars recite this supplication during Tahajjud prayer at the last ten days of Ramadan.
Unlike other Duas that are found in the Quran and Sunnah, this Dua is not found in the Quran and doesn’t has authentic chain of narrations from the prophet, Muhammad SAW.
Allahumma Izzal Islama Wal Muslimeen Meaning
Allahumma a’izzal islama wal musleemeen means O Allah! Raise the standing of Islam and the Muslims. O Allah! Raise the standing and the Muslims, and degrade the standing of Kufr and the Kaafireen, and Shirk and the Mushrikeen. Destroy the enemies of the Deen, and protect the lands of Islam, O Lord of the Worlds.
Allahumma A’Izzal Islama Wal-muslimeen Arabic
اللهُمَّ أَعِزَّ الإِسْلامَ وَالمُسْلِمِينَ، اللهُمَّ أَعِزَّ الإِسْلامَ وَالمُسْلِمِينَ، وَأَذِلَّ الشِّرْكَ وَالمُشْرِكِينَ وَدَمِّرْ أَعْدآءَ الدِّينِ وَاحْمِ حَوْزَةَ الإسْلامِ يَا رَبَّ العَالَمِينَ.
Allahumma a’izzal-Islama wal-Muslimeen, Allahumma a’izzal-Islama wal-Muslimeen, wa azhillash-shirka wal-Mushrikeen, wa dammir a’daa’ad-deen, wahmi hawzatal-Islami ya rabbal-3alameen.
According to Fatwa from Islamqa, it is permissible for a person to offer supplications that were not narrated in reports, even if that is in colloquial Arabic or in a language other than Arabic, outside of the prayer, or in the prayer when one is unable to speak Arabic, provided that he use any permissible words and avoid transgressing the limits, and provided that his supplication does not involve any sin or severing of ties of kinship.
Undoubtedly there is much good in the supplications that are narrated in reports, but a person may need to offer supplication for himself or for a loved one for some of the good things of this world and the hereafter, or he may need to ask Allah to ward off some harm or evil from him. This kind of supplication is broad in scope, and he does not have to limit himself to what is narrated in reports.
What is important in supplication is focus and presence of mind, and sincerity in turning to Allah, may He be exalted, no matter what language one is speaking. Allah, may He be exalted, hears all voices and understands all languages, and not even an atom is hidden from Him on earth or in the heavens.
