Commentary of Bismillahillazi La Yadurru Ma Asmihi

The Prophet (may peace be upon him) said that reciting this beautiful zikr three times in the morning and evening will safeguard a person from harmm, misfortune, and no calamity shall befall him.

This supplication begins with the words

In the name of Allah, but does not clarify what we are we are uttering for.


This means that there is an implied meaning here, and this is common in most instances where we begin by mentioning Allah’s name, we imply something related to the action, for example,

  • before eating we say “In the name of Allah,” implying “In the name of Allah I eat,”
  • before reciting the Qur’an, we say “In the name of Allah,” implying “In the name of Allah I recite.”

There is an implied meaning in this supplication, in that we are truly saying, “In the name of Allah, I seek refuge.

In this supplication, we are not asking refuge or help from Allah directly, but rather via His beautiful name.

Such is Allah’s majesty that His name alone is sufficient for safety.

Nothing on earth can hurt you if you are protected by Allah’s name, whether it is a human, jinn, animal, electronic gadget, or anything else.

Nothing in the skies can hurt you if you are protected by Allah’s name, whether it is rain, wind, hurricane, lightning, or anything else.

Because Allah is “the All-Hearing,” He can hear all voices at the same time, no matter how low the voice or language.

He hears it, understands it, and responds if it calls to Him.

All of these connotations are encompassed within this name.

Allah is “the All-Knowing,” which means He knows everything, whether hidden or obvious, past, present, or future.

It is a protection not only from one thing, it is a protection from everything. 

The prophet SAW said, no one who says this du’a every morning, after fajr and every evening, evening starts from asr

Bismillah, in the name of Allah. 

When we start anything in our life, when we start eating, when we start drinking, when we start the car, when we leave the house, when we start our job, when you open your business.

If you want baraka (blessings) on that day you start anything with Bismillah. 

Nothing will harm with the name of Allah at all, neither from the sky nor from the earth. 

What does that mean? 

That means on that day, if there was a hurricane from the sky, if there was lightning, if there was heavy rain that will not harm you. 

And nothing from the earth and on the earth, no earthquake, no jin, no human shayateen, no harmful foods, no accident, nothing will harm you. 

Lam yaddrruhu shaiyn

Nothing will harm him or her. No harm will take place to that person. 

In another narration, the prophet SAW said : No sudden affliction will take place on that day or on that night. 

No heart attack. 

Three times, 30 seconds full coverage. 

The deeper the certainty, the yaqeen in your heart, the higher the protection.

Anything that we hear, and it’s 100% authentic from the prophet SAW, you have to take it.  

Say it every day and every night with certainty, with complete yaqeen, that you will get the protection of Allah and you will see the result. 

May Allah protect us all. 

Please teach it to your children. 

Please teach it to your children from a young age so they can be protected from all that stuff that’s happening around them. 

Points to Consider

Allah’s name is great, so invoke it before beginning any essential action, such as acts of worship, leaving the house, or beginning a task.

Be aware of the Almighty’s majesty so that you may actually benefit from this supplication.

Make sure you contemplate over Allah’s names, for Allah is “the All-Hearing”, so He hears you while you recite this supplication, and He is “the All-Knowing”, so He knows your need while you recite this supplication.

Imam Al-Qurtubi said “this is an authentic narration, and a true statement based upon textual proof and experience.

Since I heard it, I’ve taken precautions to ensure that nothing harms me until I leave it. When I was stung by a scorpion at night, I realised I had forgotten to repeat this supplication that night.
