DU’AA FOR TAQWA

اَللّٰهُمَّ اجْعَلْنِيْ أَخْشَاكَ كَأَنِّيْ أَرَاكَ أَبَدًا حَتّٰى أَلْقَاكَ، وَأَسْعِدْنِيْ بِتَقْوَاكَ وَ

لَاتُشْقِنِيْ بِمَعْصِيَتِكَ

Allaahummaj-‘alnii akhshaaka ka’annii araaka abadan hattaa alqaak(a), wa as’idnii bitaqwaaka wa laa tushqinii bima’siyatik. ‘(Abu Hurayrah. Majma’ az-Zawaa’id #17393)

O Allah, make me fear You as if I see You all the time until I meet You. Make me blissful as a result of Your taqwa (Your fear and piety); do not make me wretched as a result of Your disobedience.

DU’AA FOR AN OPEN HEART

اَللّٰهُمَّ افْتحْ مَسَامِعَ قَلْبِيْ لِذِكْرِكَ، وَارْزُقْنِيْ طَاعَتَكَ، وَطَاعَةَ رَسُوْلِكَ، وَعَمَلًابِكِتَابِكَ ـ

Allaahummaf-tah masaami’a qalbii lidhikrik(a), war-zuqnii taa’atak(a), wa taa’ata Rasuulik(a), wa ‘amalam biKitaabik. (‘Ali ibn Abi Taalib. Kanz al-‘Ummal #3655)

O Allah, open my heart to the hearing of Your remembrance. Grant me obedience to You and to Your Messenger (sallallahu alayhi wa sallem) and (grant me) performance of deeds according to Your Book.

Open my heart: That is, when I perform dhikr by tongue or hear it from others, it should also reach the depths of my heart.

Du’aa for health

اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ الصِّحَّةَ، وَالْعِفَّةَ، وَالْأَمَانَةَ، وَحُسْنَ الْخُلُقِ، وَالرِّضَا بِالْقَدَرِـ

Allaahumma innii as’alukas-sihhat(ta), wal-‘iffa(ta), wal-‘amaana(ta), wa husnal-khuluq(i), war-ridaa bil qadar. (‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘As. Kanz al-‘Ummal #3650)

O Allah, I beg You for health, chastity, integrity, good character, and acceptance of fate.

Health is the first item in this list because its absence affects a person’s ability to worship Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) in addition to affecting his ability to enjoy this worldly life. The other qualities mentioned are all attributes of imaan. Like imaan itself, they can come to us through the blessings of Allah.
