Meaning of Summa Ameen

The verbal meaning of Summa Ameen is re-iteration of the first Ameen. The effect of saying Ameen is more than saying dua twise which is explained as below.

The letter deliverd by a post man or a courier would have a 'From' address and a 'To' address it would rarely contain a seal, presence of a seal signifies higher priority and importance of the delivered content. So the reader gives more consideration to a letter which has a seal on it.

Every dua is our personal letter which is delivered directly to Allah, with immediate effect and no middle man/thing. Prophet said(something similar to) "a dua followed by Ameen is like placing a seal on it".


  1. Thanks for sharing this important piece of information and welcome more such tit bits.Jezzakumullah Khair.

  2. Thanks!! Amazing description!! Ameen... Summa Ameen!!! Its like confirmation and reconfirmation...

    Source: Nooreen Bhabhi!! :)

  3. Really the way you have explained is marvelous....

    1. Its amazing isn’t it, the way our beloved prophet summarizes the depth of oceans with very few drops of words, across so many topics, subhanallah.
      Allah’s choice is simply great, May Allah shower his blessings abundantly on Nabi Al Ummy and Merciful to all universe.
      In my case, am grateful to have spent time with Ulema, what I know is from them.

  6. روى أبو داود عن ابي مصبح المقرائي قال : كنا نجلس الى ابي زهير النميري وكان من الصحابة ، فيحدث أحسن الحديث ، فإذا دعا الرجل منا بدعاء قال : اختمه بآمين ، فإن آمين مثل الطابع على الصحيفة . قال أبو زهير : ألا أخبركم عن ذلك : خرجنا مع رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ذات ليلة ، فأتينا على رجل قد ألح في المسألة ، فوقف النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يسمع منه ، فقال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم : أوجب إن ختم ، فقال له رجل من القوم : بأي شيء يختم ؟ قال بآمين فإنه إن ختم بآمين فقد أوجب فانصرف الرجل الذي سأل النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ، فأتى الرجل فقال له : اختم يا فلان وابشر

    This is the arabic version of the available in the internet close to the meaning of the hadith. It is reported by abu dawud, however according to scholars like Albani it is considered weak. Need to dig in further updates soon.
