Du’a for a New Year

At the approach of a New Year or month, the Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum) would recite the following du’a.

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Hisham (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that the Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum) would learn the following du’a for when the new month or New Year would begin:

اللّٰهُمَّ أَدْخِلْهُ عَلَيْنا بِالأَمْنِ وَالإِيمان وَالسَّلامَةِ وَالإسْلام وَرِضْوَانٍ مِّنَ الرَّحْمٰن وِجوارٍ مِّنَ الشَّيْطان

Allahumma adkhilhu ‘alayna bil amni wal iman, was salamati wal islam, wa ridwanim minar Rahman, wa jiwarim minash Shaytan

Translation: O Allah, bring this [month or year] upon us with security, iman, safety, Islam, your pleasure and protection from Shaytan.

(Al-Mu’jamul Awsat of Tabarani, Hadith: 6237)

‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) has ruled the chain as sound (hasan).

(Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 10 pg. 139-140)

Hafiz Ibn Hajar (rahimahullah) has graded the chain that was quoted by ‘Allamah Baghawi for this narration as authentic (sahih).

(Al-Isabah, no. 5007)

Lets learn this du’a and teach it to others. The Ummah is in dire need for every part of this du’a.
