  1. Alhamdulillahi Rabbil A’lameen, for this beautiful religion, Islaam and all that it has to offer. Alhamdulillah. My favourite dua’a is from the Surah Al-Furqan (Surah no. 25) verse 74 : ,”Our Lord, grant us from among our wives and offspring comfort to our eyes and make us an example for the righteous.” This dua’a is just so beautiful. It keeps me going, being a wife and a mum. Alhamdulillah.

    • I love your answer Muslimah :) Thank you. Like you, I am constantly so grateful for the amazing religion of Islam and so blessed to have been guided to it alhamdulillah. May Allah grant you endless blessings <3

      • Shukran sister Paola. Alhamdulillah for Islam :-) and Ameen to your dua’a. InshaAllah may Allah Kareem bless us all endlessly and may we, by His Mercy, meet in Jannatul Firdaus. Ameen ya Mujeeb.

  2. Assalam alaikum wa Rahmatu’Llah wa Barakatuhu.. I kip appreciating the producers nd organisers of this piece, jazak’Allah khairan now nd always :)… Some of my favorite du’as from the Qur’an n sunnah are: 1. Rabbir-hamhuma kamaa Rabbayaani Sagheera (for our parents). 2. Hasbun’Allahu Wa ni’imal wakeel (Allah is sufficient for us, and He’s the best disposer of affairs). 3. La’ilaha illa Anta Subhanaka innee kuntu minaz- zaalimeen :) :)

  3. one of my favorite duas is in the tenth Ayat of Surah Al-Kahf: “Our Lord, grant us from Yourself mercy and prepare for us from our affair right guidance.” All we need to enter Jannah is Allah mercy :’) and what could be better than guidance for our affair? Masya Allah.. Alhamdulillah

  4. Een vanmijn favoriete duas is Surah Fatiha <3 =) Alhamdulillah! Alle moslims weten echt waarom.. Omdat je tegen de onrechtvaardige bent… Ik ook.. De onrechtvaardige :''( .. Was het maar zo dat de onrechtvaardige vooraltijd weggaat.. :( ..
    Maar als iedereen rechtvaardig word! Dan gaat onrechtvaardigheid vooraltijd weg !!!1Hooee mooii zou de wereld tog zijn ! :''')

  5. One of my favorite duas is this, particularly the part “Allahum as tur awraati, wa’a mirr rau aati”. I had recited this dua when I was stuck in a situation, and SubhanAllah Allah responded and make that situation favorable for me and relieved me of my distress.

    Allahumma inni as-alukaal-‘afwa wal ‘afiyata fid dunya wal akhira. Allahumma inni as-aluka al ‘afwa walafiyata fee deeni wa dunyaya wa ahlee wa malee. Allahumma ustur ‘awrati wa aminrow’ati. Allahumma ahfadhnee min bayni yadayya min khalfi wa ‘an yameeni wa ‘anshimali wa min fowqi wa a’oodhu bi ‘adhmatika an aghtaala min tahti.

    “O Allah, I ask You for pardon and well-being in this life and the next. O Allah,I ask You for pardon and well-being in my religious and worldly affairs, and my family and my wealth. O Allah, veil my weaknesses and set at ease my dismay. O Allah, preserve me from the front and from behind and on my right and on my left and from above, and I take refuge with You lest I be swallowed up by the earth.”

    • Jazakillah khair. Such a beautiful du’a :) will try to practice this. And as for me, I love to say “rabbi yassir wala tu’assir, rabbi tammim bilkhair” which pray to allah to ease the task and may allah end it with goodness.

      Anyway the du’a you’ve shared, I really like it. Jazakillah :)

  6. Mine is the last ayas from Surat Al Baqara:
    ربنا لا تؤاخذنا إن نسينا أو أخطأنا،ربنا و لا تحمل علينا إصرا كما حملته على الذين من قبلنا،ربنا و لا تحملنا ما لا طاقة لنا به،و اعف عنا و اغفر لنا و رحمنا،انت مولانا فانصرنا على القوم الكافرين

  7. My favorite Dua : Umm Salma -Radhi Allaahu anha- said, the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- used to say in the supplication in the morning prayer:

    اللهم إني أسألك علماً نافعاً، ورزقاً طيباً، وعملاً متقبلاً

    ‘Allaahumma innee assaluka ilman nafia, wa rizzqan tayyeebun, wa amalan mutaqabilan,.’

    ‘O Allaah indeed I ask You for beneficial knowledge, and a good Halal provision, and actions which are accepted.’

    [Collected by Tayalisee, Tabraani & regarded Hasan by Hafidh Ibn Hajr]

  8. Assalamu alykum, I do not agree with this expression “that have never failed to transform your mood, situation or activities?” The Duaa is only a sabab and not the thing that chages things, Allah does it. (i am talking on what is written not on what the writer of the article whanted to say).

  9. Assalaamu alaikum wr wb all. I would like to share another dua which is amazing..Allahumma inni asaluka ilman naafian, wa rizqan tayyiban wa amalan muthaqabalan. It’s a dua from the sunnah for morning and evening. The other one which is SubhanAllah so comprehensive is Rabbana atina fi-dunya hasanah wa fil-akhirathi hasanah wa qina adhaab-anaar aameen! May we all be blessed with making duaa continously aameen! Jazakum Allah khair Wasalaamu alaikum wr wb

    • Learn Saiyedul Istigfar- If a person recites this dua after Fajr and if he dies before Magrib he will be awarded Jannat. Also, If a person recites this dua after Magriband if he dies before Fajr he will be awarded Jannat. This is an authentic dua.

  10. Asalamu alaykum wa rehmatullahi wa barakhatu :) The du’a which has applied in my life is…..”Allahumma ini asaluka, i’lman nafiyan, wa rizqan tayyiban, wa amalan mutaqabalan” Meaning- “Oh Allah, I ask you for knowledge which is beneficial to me, provisons/earnings which are pure, and that deeds which will be accepted by you” Ofcourse with trust comes patience and from our end these are the essence for a Du’a to come true after Allah tala’s will … Alhamdulillah!!! Subhaan Allah!!! Allahu Akbar!!!

  11. Salaam Alaikum. Allah bless the creativity of those who brought forth this site.
    In the hearts of Muslims I’m sure there are many ayats,hadith,Dhikr & duaa that are cherished! !
    Ayat12of Surah.Hadid reaches me with assurance of Jannahtul Faroius.spiritnitethree@
    On the day you shall see the believing men & women,their Nur/ light running forward before them by their right hands. Glad tidings for you this day!
    Ya Allah,something to look forward to for good works in this life with wisdom of the three P’s.
    Patience,Preserverence & Prayer!!
    Subhannahi wa bi humdi

  12. Assalaamu Alaikum all. Reciting Alhamdulillah, SubhaanAllah, Allahuakbar, Astagfirullah (can be in any order) whenever I am happy/sad/furious/scared (in any mood and at any time of day/night) has really improved the way I think and react to any situation. Plus, always keep smiling, because Allah want us to be happy and thankful in whatever condition he might keep us.

    JazaakAllah :)

  13. اسلام عليكم ورحمةالله وبركات

    Rasul-Allah (pbuh) said:

    •Ablution (wudu): “The elegance of a Muslim in Paradise will extend as far as the water with which he performs his (wudu) goes; thoroughly done wudu will remove one’s sins from his body”. Muslim

    •Dua for when one goes to bed: “Bismi-ka-Allah-humma Ahya wa Amo-to” (with Your name O Allah, I expire and return to life; and when one gets up in the morning: “Al-hamdu Lil-lahil-lazi Ahyana baada ma amatana was ilaihin nushor (All praise belongs to Allah who has brought me back to life after He has caused me to die; to him is the return, Bukhari

    •When Rasul-Allah faced serious difficulty, he would supplicate: “Ya Hayyu, Ya Qayyumu, bi-rahmatika astaghitu”(O the Living, O the Eternal, I seek help in Your grace) Tirmidhi

    •Ibn-Abbas (raa) reported: The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) used to say when he was in distress: La ilaha illallhul-Aazimul-Halim. La ilaha illalahu Rabbul-Arshil-Azim. La ilaha illallahu Rabbus-samawati, wa Rabbul-ardi, wa Rabbul-Arshil-Karim” (None has the right to be worshipped but Allah the Incomparably Great, the Compassionate. None has the right to be worshipped but Allah the Rubb of the Might Throne. None has the right to be worshipped but Allah the Rubb of the heavens, the Rubb of the earth, and the Rubb of the Honorable Throne) Al- Bukhari and Muslim

    •Uthman bin Affan (raa) reported: The Mesenger of Allah (pbuh), “He who recites three times every morning and evening: nothing will harm him” Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi:

    Bismillahil-ladhi la yadurra ma’as-mihi shai’-un fil-ardi was las fis’sama-‘i, wa Huwas-Sami-‘ul-Alim

    IIn the name of Allah with Whose Name there is protection against every kind of harm in the

    earth or in the heavens, and He is the All-Hearing and the All-Knowing).

    • He who supplicates: “Astagh-firullah-hal-lazi la ilaha illa huwal Haiyul Qaiyum wa atubo ilahe”. I solicit the pardon of Allah (swt);there is no God but Allah, the Ever-Living, the Ever-lasting, and I return to Him in repentence-will have his sins remitted, Abu Daud, Tirmidhi, and Hakim

    •Abu Hurairah (raa) reported: The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said: “He who recites in the morning and in the evening the statement: “Subhan-Allahi wa Bihamdihi”- Allah is free from imperfection and I begin with praising Him, one hundred times, wil not be surpassed on hte Day of Resurrection by anyone with better deeds than one who utters the same words or utters more of these words”. Muslim

    •Rasul-Allah would recite after every prayer: “Astagh firullah (3 times), Allah-humma antas-salam was miskas-salam, taba-rakta Rabbana ya zal-ja-lali wal-ikram”

    •Istaghfar (Asking Allah’s forgiveness of the highest order):

    (i) Allah-humma anta Rabbi

    (ii) la ilaha illa Anta

    (iii) Anta Khalaqtani

    (iv) wa ana abduka

    (v) wa ana aala ahdika wa waadika mas-ta-taato

    (vi) aazo-bika min sharre ma sanato

    (vii) abu-o-laka bi neema-tika aalaiyya wa abu-o-bi zam bi

    (viii) fagh-firli fa-in-nahu la yagh-fi-ruz zunu-ba il-la Anta

    (i) O Allah, You are my only sustainer;

    (ii) there is no God except you;

    (iii) You created me;

    (iv) and I am Your servant;

    (v) and I try my best to fulfill my promise and my covenant with You;

    (vi) I seek Your protection from the evil of that which I have done;

    (vii) I acknowledge the bounties that You have bestowed upon me and I confess my sins;

    (viii) You Do then forgive me, for verily none has the power to forgive except You alone.

    Hadith goes on to say that the person who supplicates with these words sincerely during the day, and if he dies before that very evening, will go to paradise; and a person who supplicates these words during the night faithfully believing in them, and he dies before the morning will go to paradise. Bukhari

  14. Assalamu alaikum. Jazakallahu khair for all your wonderful work, words can’t even begin to describe how much this website has changed my life. There are just loads of wonderful, beautiful duas in the Quran & sunnah, but as for the ones I use when I begin to feel overwhelmed with tasks or just life events in general, I like this dua of Prophet Moosa (alaihi salam) from surah Qasas: Rabbi inni limaa anzalta ilayya min khairin faqeer (My lord, I am in desperate need of the good You send me [Qur’an, 28:24]). He was being hunted down by the most powerful ruler in the world at that time, utterly alone in the desert with nothing but after reciting this dua, he got help, shelter, a job, wife & family. I can’t recommend it enough. Another dua from the sunnah that lightens up whatever heavy task I have ahead of me is: Allahumma laa sahlan illa maa ja’altahu sahlan wa anta taj’alu hazna idhaa shi’ita ta sahla (O Allah, there is no ease except in that which You have made easy, and You make the difficulty, if You wish, easy. [ Ibn Hibban in his Sahih #327 and Ibn As-Sunni #351]).& whenever I feel my resources are scarce, I love reciting this ayah from surah Al-Imran when Maryam (radiyallahu anha) was questioned by Prophet Zakariyya (alaihis salam) on how she feeds herself without anybody’s help. It reminds me that if Allah wills something to be mine, it will be no matter how impossible it might seem: “Every time he entered Al-Mihrab to (visit) her , he found her supplied with sustenance. He said: “O Maryam (Mary)! From where have you got this?” She said, “THIS IS FROM ALLAH” VERILY, ALLAH PROVIDES SUSTENANCE TO WHOM HE WILLS, WITHOUT LIMIT (the part in bold is what I was referring to; ‘indi Allahi inna Allaha yarzuqu many yasha-‘u bighayri hisab). Hope this helps someone out there. Wassalam.

  15. Asakm I recite durood e tunnajina. Is it a valid supplication. I am not sure. I found this in Pakistani panjsura.
    Can anyone plz confirm

    • Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu.
      From my research, this du’aa looks legitimate.
      JazakAllahu khayraa. Allah knows best.

    • Waalaikumusalam! Dear sister, here’s what my Ustadha shared with me, and Allah knows best.

      In the name of Allah, most Gracious, most Merciful.

      Wa ‘alaikum as salaam wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakatuh ukhti.

      One of the salaf, a famous taabiee; Hasan bin Atiyyah said something that seems quite pertinent:

      “No people introduced an innovation into religion except that an equivalent sunnah is taken away from them”

      [Ad-Daarimee with saheh isnaad]

      The same applies to many forms of durood (durood jinni, durood taj, durood lakhi and durood tunnajina) that have been introduced by someone once upon a time and then as a trial for others they became well-known for later times. Thus replacing the durood e Ibraheem / durood shareef that is the only authentic one among them.

      For some history on this particular durood – tunjina or tunajina – mentioned in the comment, which has nothing to do with the Sunnah of Rasool Allaah (sal Allaahu ‘ alaihi wa sallam) or the Athar of His Companions:

      This particular durood is said to be based on a dream of someone known as Sheikh Saleh Musa Ad-Dhareer – a pious man as most Sufi school of thought call. I do not know anything about him.

      It’s said that:

      “He embarked on a voyage by ship. Due to a heavy storm, the ship started sinking.All the passengers on board started crying and clamoring, but Shaykh Moosa Zareer (ra) went to sleep. He saw the Holy Prophet Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his dream and the Prophet Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam directed him and the passengers to recite Durood Tunjina 1000 times. Shaykh Moosa Zareer (ra) got up and started the recitation. As soon as he finished 300 Durood Shareef’s, the storm subsided and the ship was saved. The other ship on the high seas sank, but this ship reached its destination safely and soundly.)

      The durood in his dream being:


      “O Allah! Shower blessings on Muhammad, our Master, and his Family such blessings by means of which Thou may relieve us of all anxieties and calamities. Thou may satisfy all our needs. Thou ma clean us of all evils and thanks for which Thou may grant us high position and high rank and status in Thy presence, and Thou may lead us to the utmost limit of our aspirations and capacity in whatever is best in this world as well as in the world Hereafter,as Thou has the full Power over everything”

      Now for guidelines in authentic wird as compiled by Fuqahaa:

      1 – The best wirds are those whose words were narrated from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), because Allaah did not choose for him anything but the most perfect and the best, and he did not choose anything but that for his ummah.

      2 – It is permissible for a person to send blessings upon the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) in words that were not narrated (in sharee’ah), so long as they do not include anything that is forbidden, such as exaggerating about him, or praying to Allaah by virtue of the Prophet, or calling upon him instead of Allaah.

      3 – The one who is remembering Allaah (reciting dhikr) should not specify any particular time, number or manner of reciting dhikr unless that is proven with saheeh evidence, because Allaah cannot be worshipped except in the manner that He has prescribed in His Book or on the lips of His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). Worship must be that which is prescribed in sharee’ah, with regard to the act itself, the manner in which it is done, the time when it is done and how many times it is done. Whoever adopts a wird whose wording was not narrated from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), or specifies a particular number of times or does it at a specific time, is committing bid’ah.

      The scholars called this bid’ah al-bid’ah al-idaafiyyah (additional innovation??), because the action itself is prescribed in sharee’ah, but some innovation has been added to it with regard to the manner, the number of times or when it is to be done.

      You should note that all goodness rests in following that which has been narrated from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). Whoever studies those who recite made-up wirds will find that usually they are falling short when it comes to doing that which was narrated from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) such as the dhikrs for morning and evening, etc. This confirms what was narrated from one of the salaf, who said that no person ever introduces an innovation but he gives up an equivalent Sunnah.

      And Allaah knows best.

      (Shaykh Salih al-Munajjid)

  16. Asalaamualaykum warahmatullah :)

    There are a many dua’s that Allah has provided us with through the prophetic sunnah of the prophet and through the Qur’aan. Alhamdulillah. Two of my favourite du’aas that i say in the morning and night is:
    “O Allah, Your mercy I am hopeful for, so do not leave me to myself for the blink of an eye, and put all my affairs in order, there is no god but You.” [Abu Dawud] and this hadith “Whoever says in the morning and in the evening Hasbi Allaah laa illaha illa huwa ‘alayhi tawwakaltu wa huwa rabb al-‘arsh il-‘azeem (Sufficient for me is Allaah, there is no god besides Him; in Him have I put my trust and He is the Lord of the mighty Throne), seven times, Allah, may He be exalted, will suffice him for what concerns him,”
    And when I want to go do something productive like start a halaqah, attend quran classes, etc. I remember this du’aa
    “O Allah, I seek refuge in You from weakness and laziness, miserliness and cowardice, anxiety and sorrow, and I seek refuge in You from the torments of the grave, and I seek refuge in You from the trials and tribulations of life and death.” [Bukhari]

    In’sha’Allah this was beneficial. Allahuma Baarik feekum for your great work.
    wa asalaamualaykum warahmatullah

  17. Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuhu
    My favorite Du’a is Rabbana atina fid-dunya hasanatan wa fil ‘akhirati hasanatan waqina adhaban-nar
    Qura’an 2:201

  18. As Sallaam Alaykum Rahmatuhalah wa Barakatuh,
    This is my first time being on this web site, this is a great web site, Reading everyone’s comments I have absorbed beautiful knowledge. This is so much better than wasting time on facebook. I made dua to Allah asking to spend my time on spiritual enlightment, Alhamdullilah, it came! I will be taking notes. All praises to Allah subhannah wa ta’alah for this wonderful group.

  19. my dear brother I think you are not AWARE about the’ ASMA UL HUSNA’ i.e. the beautiful names of ALLAH these beautiful names hahe enormous power and if recited in a right way you,ll be able to knock out the whole world just start the name YA GHAFUR every moment and every time and just experience.

  20. Recitation of these name is far more effective then the DUAs but their reccitation may have unknown harmful effects if recited in a wrong manner

  21. My favourite dua is “Ya muqallabil qulub, thabbit qalbi a’laa deenik”. Meaning “Oh Turner of the heart, make my heart steadfast on Your Deen”.

  22. Assalamu’alaikum, one of my favorite ayah is Q94 vs 5-6 (with hardship there is relief) also Suratul Muzammil (Q73 Vs 20)

  23. My favourite dua: Allahumma inni as’alukal-huda wat-tuqa wal- ‘afafa wal-ghina
    (O Allah I ask You for guidance, piety, chastity and self -sufficiency)[Muslim]

  24. A salaam aliakum warahmatullah wabarakat, Alhamudullilah for all those contributing to these beautiful duas all showing the love of Allah and the prophet muhammad peace be upon him. Am developing myself in my deen and indeed these help me to find my way. May Allah bless you all inshaAllah , accept our duas and make us good muslim in our difficult society inshaAllah

  25. Assalamoalaikum.
    Whenever I feel overwhelmed by my chores I recite this dua from Surah Kahf: rabbana aatina mil ladunka rehmattao wahayee lana min amrina rashada. It always eases my workload and I manage to finish my work in no time.

  26. Ahhhh subhaanAllah!
    Such amazing du’as here! Everyone has stolen so many of my favourites! Hahaha, only kiddin! masha Allah!

    Another amazingggg du’a I use on a regular basis, before I teach my students everyday:


    O my Lord, expand my chest for me, (grant me confidence and boldness), and make my task easy for me, and remove the impediment from my speech, so that they may understand me!

    Surah Taha (20: 25-28)

    And everyday, my Lord Exalted be He, provides for me, and gives me the confidence to teach! What a powerful du’a that Prophet Musa AS used!

  27. Umm Salama, the wife of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ), reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying:
    If any servant (of Allah) who suffers a calamity says:” We belong to Allah and to Him shall we return; O Allah, reward me for my affliction and give me something better than it in exchange for it,” ‘ Allah will give him reward for affliction, and would give him something better than it in exchange. She (Umm Salama) said: When Abu Salama died. I uttered (these very words) as I was commanded (to do) by the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ). So Allah gave me better in exchange than him. i. e. (I was taken as the wife of) the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ).

    وَحَدَّثَنَا أَبُو بَكْرِ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو أُسَامَةَ، عَنْ سَعْدِ بْنِ سَعِيدٍ، قَالَ أَخْبَرَنِي عُمَرُ بْنُ كَثِيرِ بْنِ أَفْلَحَ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ ابْنَ سَفِينَةَ، يُحَدِّثُ أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ أُمَّ سَلَمَةَ، زَوْجَ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم تَقُولُ سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ ‏ “‏ مَا مِنْ عَبْدٍ تُصِيبُهُ مُصِيبَةٌ فَيَقُولُ إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ اللَّهُمَّ أْجُرْنِي فِي مُصِيبَتِي وَأَخْلِفْ لِي خَيْرًا مِنْهَا إِلاَّ أَجَرَهُ اللَّهُ فِي مُصِيبَتِهِ وَأَخْلَفَ لَهُ خَيْرًا مِنْهَا ‏”‏ ‏.‏ قَالَتْ فَلَمَّا تُوُفِّيَ أَبُو سَلَمَةَ قُلْتُ كَمَا أَمَرَنِي رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَأَخْلَفَ اللَّهُ لِي خَيْرًا مِنْهُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏.‏

  28. (83)وَأَيُّوبَ إِذْ نَادَىٰ رَبَّهُ أَنِّي مَسَّنِيَ الضُّرُّ وَأَنْتَ أَرْحَمُ الرَّاحِمِينَ
    And Ayyub when he called out to his Lord, ‘Great harm has afflicted me and You are the Most Merciful of the merciful,’ (83)

    (84)فَاسْتَجَبْنَا لَهُ فَكَشَفْنَا مَا بِهِ مِنْ ضُرٍّ ۖ وَآتَيْنَاهُ أَهْلَهُ وَمِثْلَهُمْ مَعَهُمْ رَحْمَةً مِنْ عِنْدِنَا وَذِكْرَىٰ لِلْعَابِدِينَ
    So We responded to him and removed what afflicted him of adversity. And We gave him [back] his family and the like thereof with them as mercy from Us and a reminder for the worshippers [of Allāh]. (84)

    (87)وَذَا النُّونِ إِذْ ذَهَبَ مُغَاضِبًا فَظَنَّ أَنْ لَنْ نَقْدِرَ عَلَيْهِ فَنَادَىٰ فِي الظُّلُمَاتِ أَنْ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنْتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ
    And Dhu’n-Nun { the man of the fish [i.e., Jonah]} when he left in anger and thought We would not punish him. He called out in the pitch darkness: ‘There is no god but You! Glory be to You! Truly I have been one of the wrongdoers.’(87)

    (88)فَاسْتَجَبْنَا لَهُ وَنَجَّيْنَاهُ مِنَ الْغَمِّ ۚ وَكَذَٰلِكَ نُنْجِي الْمُؤْمِنِينَ
    So We responded to him and saved him from the distress. And thus do We save the believers.(88)

    (89)وَزَكَرِيَّا إِذْ نَادَىٰ رَبَّهُ رَبِّ لَا تَذَرْنِي فَرْدًا وَأَنْتَ خَيْرُ الْوَارِثِينَ
    And [mention] Zechariah, when he called to his Lord, “My Lord, do not leave me alone [with no heir], while You are the best of inheritors.”(89)

    (90)فَاسْتَجَبْنَا لَهُ وَوَهَبْنَا لَهُ يَحْيَىٰ وَأَصْلَحْنَا لَهُ زَوْجَهُ ۚ إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا يُسَارِعُونَ فِي الْخَيْرَاتِ وَيَدْعُونَنَا رَغَبًا وَرَهَبًا ۖ وَكَانُوا لَنَا خَاشِعِينَ
    So We responded to him, and We gave to him Yahya, and amended for him his wife. Indeed, they used to hasten to good deeds and supplicate Us in hope and fear, and they were to Us humbly submissive.

    • Surat AL-ANBIYĀʾThe Prophets الأنبياء

      Meccan (surah 21 • 112 ayahs)
      »The surah that mentions the names of sixteen of THE PROPHETS and Mary, illustrating the unity of the divine message. Accounts of several prophets (anbiyāʾ) appear in this surah from verse 48 ff., hence its name. The surah stresses that fact that Muḥammad is a man like earlier prophets, and has been given the same message to declare the unity of God. It warns the disbelievers of the approaching Judgement from which there is no escape.«

  30. AsSallaam Alaykum Rahmatualah wa Barakatu;
    I have been reading everyone’s comments, and sharing their most favorite Dua’s. Wow! this is so wonderful, and I have learned so much, just by reading, Insha Allah I am going to begin reciting some of these dua’s, especially the one that stood out was the one by Brother Mushtaque Nasir when he shared the supplication “Astaghar” that who recites this during the day or before going to bed and if the person dies the person goes to paradise. I will surely begin to recite this everyday. Shukran Brother

  35. Assalamu alaikum Wa Rahmatullah!
    Here’s one of my favourite duas:
    سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ عَدَدَ خَلْقِهِ، وَرِضَا نَفْسِهِ، وَزِنَةَ عَرْشِهِ وَمِدَادَ كَلِمَاتِه

    And I make it a point to recite this dua before exams and vivas :) :
    رَبِّ اشْرَحْ لِي صَدْرِي وَيَسِّرْ لِي اَمْرِي وَاحْلُلْ عُقْدَةً مِنْ لِسَانِي يَفْقَهُوا قَوْلِي

  36. My fav duas: Alahuma la sahla ila ma jaaltahuu sahlaa wa an tajalal husna Ida shi tahu sahla( oh Allah nothing is easy except that which you make easy)

    Rabish rahli sadri wa yasir Li Amri wahlul uktadan min lisaani . Oh Allah expand my chest, make my task easy and loosen the knot from my tounge so my speech may be clear .

    La ilaha ila Anta subhanka ini kuntu min adalimiin : There is no God but you Glory be to You, I have become one of the wrong doers( oppressor)

  37. “O Allah, I have greatly wronged myself and no one forgives sins but You. So, Grant me forgiveness and have mercy on me. Surely, You are Forgiving, Merciful”

    Allaahumma ‘innee dhalamtu nafsee dhulman katheeran, wa laa yaghfiruth-thunooba ‘illaa ‘Anta, faghfir lee maghfiratan min ‘indika warhamnee ‘innaka ‘Antal-Ghafoorur-Raheem.

    Jazakallahu khyran all for your comments.I’m still memorizing dua’s and learning their meanings.

  38. asslam o alaikum
    all duas are wonderfull.
    just say any dua having 1000 percent …… belief in Allah subhanotalla.there will be miracles insha Allah ..

  39. Excellent responses. For me the bottom line is that there is a Du’a for every occasion as the the Beloved Prophet taught us. However, a minor form of Kufr may be not to internalize these great supplications, may Allah The Exalted protect us from that. Not to be left out, i add the Du’a with the ending appropriate to this discussion: Allahumma inni a’uthubika……. was du’ail laa yusma’ (Oh Allah i protect myself with you with supplication that is unanswered). May the the Almighty Allah accept your prayers, Ameen

  40. Assalamalikum , my most favourite duaa is the
    ‘Ayat – ul – Kursi “. I really feel secure whenever I recite it . Recently an incident took place in my life and due to the protection of the Almighty Allah which HE provided through this duaa , nothing happened to me. I was all safe and sound Alhamdulillah. It’s a very powerful duaa. Recite it and see what wonders can happen :-) .

    To You we belong and to You we shall return. Oh Allah, reward me for my affliction and grant me something best in exchange..

    This is such a soothing and tranquilizing dua that could be made at times of distress. This dua was recited by Umm Salamah at the demise of her husband, Abu Salamah. Allah gave her Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as her husband. Who can be the best man on the Earth rather than him?? This is such a beautiful and powerful dua..

    O my Allah, please make me a persistent, persevering, unique, worshipful slave who does not surrender to anything in existence buy You, and do not let me be attached to any worldly pleasures, buy let me be attached to nothing except You.
    O my Allah please busy my thoughts with You, and occupy my senses with passionate longing for You (ishq) Overpower my senses and pledge them for You: cover my sins and conceal them from every eye and put me under Your Protection until the Day of meeting You.

  44. Intimate Dua: Oh Allah, do not make us of those who forgot about you, so we end up forgetting ourselves thus losing our identity. Oh Allah, do not let us depart this world except in a state/condition that is most pleasing to you similar to those you have been most pleased with in the past.

I was restless n over excited actually. So I took to doing Istighfar in its full form 99 times. AstaghfirUllah wa atoobu ilayh! N AlhamdulIllah! I was able to concentrate n even remain calm throughout the process. So yea that is my life changing duah among many. AlhamdulIllah ala ni’imatil Islam.
