In Islam, entering your home is a moment of peace and tranquility. It is a time when you leave the stress and troubles of the outside world behind and enter into the comfort of your own abode. This moment of transition is significant in the Islamic tradition, and there is a special dua (supplication) that is recommended to be recited when entering your home.
The dua for entering your home is simple yet powerful. It is a way to ask Allah for blessings and protection as you cross the threshold into your private space. The dua is as follows:
“Bismillah, Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu. Allahumma Inni As’aluka Khairal Mawliji Wa Khairal Mukhrajii Bismillahi Wa La Jundu Wa La Quwwata Illa Billah.”
Translation: In the name of Allah, peace be upon you, and His mercy and blessings. O Allah, I ask You for the best of entering and the best of leaving. In the name of Allah, there is no might or power except with Allah.
Reciting this dua upon entering your home is a great way to seek Allah’s protection and blessings upon your household. It serves as a reminder that Allah is always with us and that we should seek His guidance and protection in all aspects of our lives.
Apart from seeking Allah’s blessings, reciting this dua can also be a way to remind ourselves to be grateful for the blessings that Allah has bestowed upon us. We should always be thankful for the roof over our heads and the safety and security that our homes provide.
