رَبَّنَا إِنَّنَا آمَنَّا فَاغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ
Rabbanaa innanaa aamannaa fagh-fir lanaa dhunuubanaa wa qinaa ‘adhaaban-naar (3:16)
Our Lord, surely we have believed, so forgive us our sins and shield us from the punishment of the Fire.
The verses before and after the one containing this du’aa characterize the people making this du’aa as the ones who fear Allah; are patient, truthful, devout, and charitable; and who seek forgiveness in the pre-dawn hours. Yet by invoking solely their iman here as the basis of forgiveness they affirm that this is the most valuable treasure of a believer.

May Allah Ta’aala grant the members of the Ummah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem) such noble characteristics, accept our du’aas despite errors and deficiencies, and grant us forgiveness. Ameen.
