Imam Ahmad narrated that the servant of the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said:

The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said:


There is no Muslim who says three times, when morning comes and when evening comes, ‘Raditu Billahi Rabban wa bil Islami dinan wa bi Muhammadin sall-Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallama Nabiyyan (I am content with Allah as my Lord, with Islam as my religion, and with Muhammad (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) as my Prophet),’ but it will be incumbent upon Allah to make him content on the Day of Resurrection.”

The Prophet (may peace be upon him) said that any Muslim who recites this dua three times in the morning and three times in the evening, Allah takes it upon Himself to favour him or her on the Day of Judgement.

In other narrations, the Prophet (may peace be upon him) said that the reward for saying this dua is that he will take the person by the hand and lead him into paradise, and that Paradise is guaranteed for this person.

This supplication emphasises a condition of contentment that is far more than ordinary tolerance.

Being content with a situation implies that you would act the same way if it were in your own hands.

Imam Al Nawawi said:

Being content here is as though one is saying: “I’m convinced, I’m sufficed, and desire nothing else.

The first point on which we affirm our content is that Allah is our Lord.

Because the Lord is the one who decides and decrees, we confirm our satisfaction with everything Allah decrees for us.

Being content with Allah as your Lord means being content with the provisions He has determined for you, with the life He has selected for you, with the trials He has placed before you, and with everything, He has placed in front of you.

The second issue is that we must accept Islam as our religion.

Islam means completely submitting to Allah’s commands.

Being content with Islam as your religion entails being satisfied with every single commandment, prohibition, law, and punishment contained inside this beautiful religion.

The third and final issue is to accept the Prophet Muhammad (SallAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) as our Prophet.

This Prophet is the one who delivered Allah’s message in its best and most complete form.

Being content with the Prophet Muhammad (may peace and blessings be upon him) as your Prophet entails being satisfied with all of the commandments and prohibitions he taught us, the way he lived his life, the decisions he made, the friends he had, and the women he married.

It also implies that you believe him in everything he says.

Radhitu Billahi Rabba Dua Benefits

This zikr (remembrance), though brief and easy on the tongue, conceals a significant reward for those who sincerely adhere to, contemplate, and live by it.

A person who repeats this supplication every morning and evening is preparing for the day by reminding himself that he is content with these matters and is willing to abide by all of them, even whatever Allah decides for him that day.

A person who says this supplication and then expresses discontent when confronted with misfortune, or rejects teaching of Islam, or something that was a part of the Prophet’s (SallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) life, is a liar and a hypocrite.

He speaks something on his tongue, but his actions do not match.

This supplication also aids a person in the early phases of the afterlife, when he is laid in his grave and two angels ask him three questions:

  • Who is your Lord?
  • What is your religion?
  • Who is this person that was sent to you?

The answers to these three questions are the three topics on which we have expressed our contentment every morning and evening.
