Dua

Praise belongs to Allah Ta’aala

اللّٰهُمَّ لَكَالْحَمْدُ كَالَّذِيْ تَقُوْلُ وَخَيْرًا مِّمَّا نَقُوْلُ ـ

Allaahumma lakal-hamdu kaalladhii taquulu wa khayram mimmaa naquul. (‘Ali ibn Abi Talib. Sunan at-Tirmidhi #3442)

O Allah, praise belongs to You just as You say, and better than how we say it.

Du’aa for Yaqeen

اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ إِيْمَانًا يُّبَاشِرُ قَلْبِيْ، وَيَقِيْنًا صَادِقًا حَتّٰى أَعْلَمَ أَنَّهٗ لَايُصِيْبُنِيْ إِلَّامَا كَتَبْتَ لِيْ، وَرِضًى مِّنَ الْمَعِيْشَةِ بِمَا قَسَمْتَ لِيْ ـ

Allaahumma innii as’aluka iimaanan yubashiru qalbii, wa yaqiinan saadiqan hattaa a’lama annahuu laa yusiibunii illaa maa katabta lii, wa ridam minal-ma’iishati bimaa qasamta lii. (‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar. Kanz al-‘Ummal #3657; Ibid. Majma’ az-Zawa’id #17410)

O Allah, I beg You for the faith that settles deep in my heart, a true conviction so that I understand that nothing can afflict me beyond what You have decreed for me, and satisfaction with the provision which You have apportioned for me.

Du’aa for protection from Haram, through Halal

-اللّٰهُمَّ اكْفِنِيْ بِحَلَالِكَ عَنْ حَرَامِكَ، وَأَغْنِنِيْ بِفَضْلِكَ عَمَّنْ سِوَاكَ

Allaahummak-finii bihalaalika ‘an haraamik(a), wa aghninii bifadlika ‘amman siwaak. (‘Ali ibn Abi Talib. Sunan at-Tirmidhi #3486)

O Allah, protect me from what You declared haram (unlawful) through the sufficiency of what You made halal (lawful). And make me, by Your benevolence, independent of all besides You.

Sayyidna ‘Ali (ra) was approached by a slave who needed money to win his freedom. He did not have money to help the person; instead he taught him these words, saying that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem) said, “If one is under the burden of a mountain of debt, Allah will help him discharge it when he supplicates to Him thus.”

Du’aa for Safety

اَللّٰهُمَّ إِلٰهَ جِبْرِئِيْلَ وَمِيْكَائِيْلَ وَإِسْرَافِيْلَ، وَإِلٰهَ إِبْرَاهِيْمَ وَإِسْمٰعِيْلَ وَإِسْحٰقَ، عَافِنِيْ وَ لَاتُسَلِّطَنَّ أَحَدًا مِّنْ خَلْقِكَ عَلَيَّ بِشَيْءٍ لَّا طَا قَةَ لَيْ بِهٖ ـ

Allaahumma ilaaha Jibra’iila wa Miikaa’iila wa Israafiil(a), wa ilaaha Ibraahiima wa Ismaa’iila wa Ishaaq(a), ‘aafinii wa laa tusallitanna ahadam min khalqika ‘alayya bishay’in laa taaqata lii bih. (Musannaf ibn Abi Shaybah #29171)

O Allah, Lord of Jibril (Gabriel), Mika’il (Michael), Israfil, and Lord of Ibrahim (Abraham), Isma’il (Ishmael), and Is’haq (Isaac), grant me safety and do not impose anyone of Your creations upon me with such a thing as would be intolerable to me.

Du’aa for those suffering from worry or grief

اللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّيْ عَبْدُكَ وَابْنُ عَبْدِكَ وَابْنُ أَمَتِكَ، نَاصِيَتِيْ بِيَدِكَ، مَاضٍ فِيَّ حُكْمُكَ، عَدْلٌ فِيَّ قَضَاؤُكَ. أَسأَلُكَ بِكُلِّ اسْمٍ هُوَ لَكَ، سَمَّيْتَ بِهٖ نَفْسَكَ، أَوْ أنْزَلْتَهٗ فِيْ كِتَابِكَ، أَوْ عَلَّمْتَهٗ أَحَدًا مِّنْ خَلْقِكَ، أَوَ اسْتَأثَرْتَ بِهٖ فِيْ عِلْمِ الْغَيْبِ عِنْدَكَ، أَنْ تَجْعَلَ الْقُرْ اٰنَ العَظِيْمَ رَبِيْعَ قَلْبِيْ، وَنُوْرَبَصَرِيْ، وَجِلَاءَ حُزْنِيْ، وَذَهَابَ هَّمِيْ ـ

Allaahumma innii ‘abduka wab-nu ‘abdika wab-nu amatik(a), naasiyatii biyadik(a), maadin fiyya hukmuk(a), ‘adlun fiyya qadaa’uk(a). As’aluka bikullis-min huwa lak(a), sammayta bihii nafsak(a), aw anzaltahuu fii kitaabik(a), aw ‘allamtahuu ahadam min khalqik(a), awis-ta’tharta bihii fii ‘ilmil-ghaybi ‘indak(a), an taj’alal-Qur’aanal-‘aziima rabii’a qalbii, wa nuura basarii, wa jilaa’a huznii, wa dhahaaba hammi. [‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud. Mu’jam al-Kabir (Tabarani)]

O Allah, I am Your slave, son of Your male servant, and son of Your female servant. My forelock is in Your Hand. Your command for me prevails. Your Judgment concerning me is just. I beseech You through every name You have, by which You have called Yourself, or which You have sent down in Your Book, or which You taught to any one of Your creations, or which You preferred to keep to Yourself among Your guarded secrets, to make the Great Qur’an the springtime of my heart, the light of my eyes, the remedy of my grief, and the dispeller of my anxiety.

Sayyidna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (ra) reports that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem)  said, “Whenever a Muslim is suffering from a worry or grief and he makes this du’aa, Allah will remove his worry and replace his grief with joy.” The Companions said, “Should we not learn these words?” He replied, “Certainly. It is only proper for anyone who listens to these words to learn them.”

In the beginning part, a woman should say here: اللّٰهُمَّ أَنَا أَمَتُكَ وَبِنْتُ عَبْدِكَ وَبِنْتُ أَمَتِكَ (“O Allah, I am Your female servant, daughter of Your male servant, and daughter of Your female servant”).

Du’aa for the Pure, the Beneficial and the Accepted

اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ رِزْقًا طَيِّبًا، وَّعِلْمًا نَّافِعًا، وَّعَمَلًا مُّتَقَبَّلًا ـ

Allaahumma innii as’aluka rizqan tayyiba(n), wa ‘ilman naafi’an, wa ‘amalam mutaqabbala. [Um Salamah. Mu’jam al-Kabir (Tabarani)]

O Allah, I beg You for provisions that are pure, knowledge that is beneficial, and deeds that will be accepted.
