Du’aa for our children

رَبِّ اجْعَلْنِي مُقِيمَ الصَّلَاةِ وَمِن ذُرِّيَّتِي رَبَّنَا وَتَقَبَّلْ دُعَاءِ

Rabbij-‘alnii muqiimas-salaati wa min dhurriyyatii. Rabbanaa wa taqabbal du’aa’. (14:40)

My Lord, make me and my offspring establish salaat. Our Lord, accept my supplication.


This was the du’aa of Sayyidna Ibrahim (Abraham) (a.s.). His concern for the salaat of his children should set an example for us. We should provide proper Islamic education and training to our children. At the same time we should be praying for their steadfastness in Islamic practices.
