Question

Has it been authentically narrated
that one should say 'Allahumma
ajirni min annar', seven times after
Fajr (early morning) and Maghrib
(sunset) prayers?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.
This hadeeth (prophetic narration)
was narrated by al-Imam Ahmad in
al-Musnad, 17362, and by Abu
Dawood, 5079. The hadeeth is as
follows:

It was narrated that the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allah be
upon him) said: “When you pray
Fajr, then say before speaking to
any of the people, ‘Allahumma ajirni
min al-nar (O Allah, protect me from
the Fire)’ seven times. Then if you
die on that day, Allah will grant you
protection from the Fire. And when
you pray Maghrib, then say before
speaking to any of the people,
‘Allahumma inni as’aluka al-jannah,
Allahumma ajirni min al-nar (O
Allah, I ask You for Paradise, O
Allah, protect me from the Fire)’
seven times. Then if you die that
night, Allah will grant you protection
from the Fire.”
Two things may be noted about the
hadeeth.
1. It does not say that this du’a
(supplication) is to be said after
‘Isha (night prayer), as mentioned
in the question.
2. The hadeeth is not saheeh
(authentic) in its narration from the
Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allah be upon him). See al-Silsilah al-
Da’eefah by al-Shaykh al-Albani
(may Allah have mercy on him),
1624.
Based on this, it is not mustahabb
(desirable) to recite this du’a after
Fajr and Maghrib prayers.
3. It was narrated that Anas (may
Allah be pleased with him) said: The
Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever
asks Allah for Paradise three times,
Paradise will say, ‘O Allah, admit him
to Paradise.’ Whoever seeks
protection from the Fire three
times, Hell will say, ‘O Allah, protect
him from the Fire.’”
Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2572; Ibn
Majah, 4340. This is a saheeh
hadeeth; it was classed as saheeh
by al-Shaykh al-Albaani (may Allah
have mercy on him) in Saheeh al-
Jami’, 6275).
But there is nothing to state that
this should be recited in conjunction
with any particular prayer, or at any
particular time.

It is mustahabb for the believer to
ask Allah for Paradise a great deal,
and to seek protection from Hell a
great deal, without saying such
words in conjunction with any
particular prayer, or at any
particular time.

And Allah knows best.
