I want to die with my forehead on the ground, The Sunnah in my heart, Allah on my mind, Quran on my tongue, And Tears in my eyes

Mirror mirror on the wall...

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Dua for when looking in the mirror:

اللهم كما حسنت خلقي فحسن خلقي

"Allahumma kama hasanta khalqi fahassin khuluqi"

“Oh Allah! As you have beautified my outward appearance, then beautify my inward appearance (character)”


EDIT: a good way to remember this is to write it on a piece of paper and tape it next to your mirrors, that way it'll be right there every time.

I love this du'a. I actually have a list of du'a I want to memorize this summer and that was one of them. When I lived with my parents, I used to put duas on an index card and place them all around the house. It becomes such a habit and once you do it for awhile, it never leaves you Subhanallah!

Your post reminded me of that. Thanks! Insha'Allah, I'm going to do that right now!
