Dua before entering into a Masjid

When a person desires to enter a masjid, he should invoke Allah’s blessing on the Prophet SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam, followed by reciting this supplication:

«اللهُمَّ افْتَحْ لِي أَبْوَابَ رَحْمَتِكَ»

“Allahummaftah li abwaba rahmateka”

Translation: “O Allah! Open the doors for me of your Blessings”

Or recite this Dua (supplication):

«أَعُوذُ بِاللَّهِ الْعَظِيمِ، وَبِوَجْهِهِ الْكَرِيمِ، وَسُلْطَانِهِ الْقَدِيمِ، مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ»

Aauzu billahil Azeem, wa be’wajhehil Kareem, wa sultanehil qadeem, minash shaitanir rajeem

Translation: “I seek refuge in Almighty Allah, By His Noble Face, By His Primordial Power, from Satan the outcast”.

When Satan hears a person reciting this Dua (Supplication), he says “this person has now become safe from me for the whole day”. (Abu Dawood).
