Du’aa of those firmly grounded in knowledge

رَبَّنَا لَا تُزِغْ قُلُوبَنَا بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَيْتَنَا وَهَبْ لَنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ رَحْمَةً إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْوَهَّابُ

Rabbanaa laa tuzigh quluubanaa ba’da idh hadaytanaa wa hab lanaa min ladunka rahma(tan). Innaka Antal-Wahhaab.(3:8)

Our Lord, do not let our hearts falter after You have guided us, and grant us mercy from Your presence. Surely You are the most generous Grantor.


As the previous verse of this surah states, this is the du’aa of those who are firmly grounded in knowledge. They never become complacent with their iman (faith), being fully aware that one’s iman is one’s most precious treasure and needs to be carefully guarded. Further, we cannot guarantee its protection; we must turn to Allah to seek His help in doing so.

Needless to say, it is unimaginable that anyone consciously making this du’aa will knowingly engage in such enterprises as may pose danger to his iman.

Oh Allah, grant us beneficial knowledge; ground us in Your knowledge, in Your love, and the love of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem) and his sunnahs; unify us in Your love and keep us unified in Your love; safeguard our imaan and grant us steadfastness; and accept our du’aas despite errors and deficiencies. Ameen.
