Allah Yahdik in Arabic, Meaning & response

Allah Yahdik is a simple yet powerful Dua that Muslims say when they see a person consistently doing something wrong/Haram and pray to Allah to the person who does it be guided to the right way. We will discuss in detail how it is written in Arabic, its Meaning, when to say it, and how to respond.

Allah Yahdik in Arabic

The phrase consists of 2 words which are written as

الله يهديك

Common spelling:

  • Allah Yahdiky to Female

Allah Yahdik Meaning

The word “Yahdik” is derived from “Huda” which means guidance, so Yahdik means Guide you, and combining it with Allah makes it Dua which means May Allah Guide you.

When to Say Allah Yahdek

It is important to be careful when you say it as it may carry an insult because when you say it you declare that what the person doing is wrong and you pray to Allah to guide him/her in the right direction.

So if there is a mutual understanding that the behavior is wrong and for some reason, it’s hard or can’t be corrected then it will be a suitable time to say Allah Yahdiik. Otherwise, it would be better not to say it out loud.

Example: “What you are doing is Haram, repent before it’s too late Allah Yahdek
Allah Yahdina to the right path”

How to reply

Since it’s considered a Dua so the most convenient reply is saying, Ameen or Allahumma Ameen or thanking the person who made the Dua with Jazakallah Khair.

Another way is to generalize the Dua by saying Allah Yahdina GameA’n which means May Allah guide us All.
