Assalam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu

Duas are the best way for man to communicate to Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس his
requirements for his life in this world and for his proposed life in the
Hereafter. Duas are most meaningful when the person praying to Allah
communicates it from his heart, in a language comfortable for him to do
so.

The Quran has a number of duas expressed by many prophets; duas
that are very meaningful, for what they asked for was nothing other
than good. When we read these duas, and familiarize ourselves with
their meanings, we cannot help but recognize that these duas can easily
be personalized for ourselves, for what these prophets were asking for
was nothing but the best for themselves, their families and future
generations, and all of humanity (those that were willing to accept Allah
ىلاعتو هناحبس as the one and only God worthy of worship).

As we read these duas, we will find them familiar, as we have read them
earlier (whether a few times or a number of times depends from person
to person), but on reading what they mean we cannot help but be
inclined to use these duas for ourselves, for they epitomize the very best
of what any believer would like for himself.

Investigate these duas and use them, for they are the best of prayers.

Wassalam.

INTRODUCTION

Praise be to Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس, we thank Him, seek His Help and His Forgiveness. We seek refuge in
Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس from the evils of ourselves and that of our bad deeds. He whom Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس
guides, is truly guided, and he whom Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس leaves to stray, none can guide him. I bear
witness that there is no god but Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس, who has no partner and I bear witness that
Muhammad ملس و هيلع - ىلص is His Messenger.

This publication is a compilation of forty such verses, which are supplications imploring Allah هناحبس
ىلاعتو for favours, all of which start with beseeching Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس with His title of the Lord of all.

If a person reads it with humility and subjugation, there will be a feeling of contentment. The best time
to read this book is before or after Fajr salaah (Morning prayer). Before reading this book, read the
following salutations.

ALLAHUMMA SALLI `ALA SAYYIDINA MUHAMMADI-NIN-NABIYYIL UMMIYYI WA `ALA ALIHI WA
BARIK WA SALLIM

O Allah shower Your salutations and blessings and peace upon our master Muhammad, the unlettered Prophet,
and upon his family.

RABBANA TAQABBAL MINNA INNAKA ’ANTAS-SAMI-`UL- `ALIM.

“ Our Lord! Accept from us this (service); verily You alone are the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing.” Al Baqarah 127


1. This du`a was read by Ibrahim م`سلا هيلع and Ismail م`سلا هيلع when they completed the building of the
Ka’bah.

2. The lesson is that a person must not be satisfied with actions only. Rather, after the action, be humble
and beg Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس to accept it. This is taught from the action of Ibrahim م`سلا هيلع. After completing
such a lofty action he does not express pride, rather he asks Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس to accept the action.

RABBANA WAJ`ALNA MUSLIMAYNI LAKA WA MIN DHURRIYYATINA UMMATAM-MUSLIMATAL-LAK; WA ’ARINA
MANASIKANA WA TUB `ALAYNA; INNAKA ’ANTAT-TAWWABUR-RAHIM.

“Our Lord! Make us (Muslims) submissive to Your Will, and raise from our offspring a (Muslim) community
submissive to you, and teach us our rites of worship and relent toward us. Verily You alone are the most
relenting, the Ever-Merciful.”Al Baqarah 128

1. This is also the du`a of Ibrahim م`سلا هيلع.

2. This du’a is the end result of Ibrahim’s م`سلا هيلع fear and recognition of Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس after completing
actions whilst being obedient and subservient. One should make this du`a for obedience and subservience to
Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس alone. The reason is that when the recognition of Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس is increased in a person his
realisation is also increased.

Ibrahim م`سلا هيلع also made du`a for his offspring. The close servants of Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس are more concerned
about the spiritual welfare of their offspring especially their welfare in the Aakhirah. Another reason for praying for
the off-spring is that they may, by their good deeds set a good example to future generations and the nation of
Islam will benefit as a whole. Mariful Qur’an vol. 1. P328/9

“O our Lord! Grant us good in the world and good in the Hereafter and save us from the torment of the fire.”Al
Baqarah 201

1. Rasulullah ملس و هيلع - ىلص used to recite this du`a very often. Mariful Quraan P. 492 and Tafseer Mazhiri P. 403 from Anas

2. This du`a is masnun especially during tawaaf. Ibid

3. Allama Bagawi هنع يضر narrates that Anas هنع يضر said: Once Rasulullah ملس و هيلع - ىلص saw a
person who became so thin and weak like a bird hatching out from an egg. Nabi ملس و هيلع - ىلص asked him : Do
you make du`a to Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس? He replied: O Rasulullah ملس و هيلع - ىلص I used to make this du`a: “O Allah!
What punishment you are to give me in the Akhirah, give it to me in this world”.

Rasulullah said in astonishment “Subhanallah you do not have the capability to withstand that punishment. Why
don’t you make this du`a? (i.e. the above du`a)”. He made this du`a and was cured. Tafsir Mazhari - P 403 - from Muslim

4. Abdullah bin Saaib هنع يضر relates that Rasulullah ملس و هيلع - ىلص used to recite the above du`a between
Rukn Jamah and Rukn Aswad. Ibid - From Abu Dawud, Nasai, Ibn Hibban, Hakim

5. Abu Hasan bin Dahhak هنع يضر narrates that Anas هنع يضر used to say that even if Rasulullah - ىلص
ملس و هيلع used to make du`a a hundred times he would begin with the above du`a and end off with it as well, and
if he used to make two du`a then one of it used to be the above. Ibid - Ibn Abi Shaiba

6. Naqi bin Makhlad هنع يضر narrates from Anas هنع يضر the above ayah used to be in the beginning of
Rasulullah’s ملس و هيلع - ىلص du`a, the middle and at the end.

7. Anas bin Malik هنع يضر narrates that Rasulullah ملس و هيلع - ىلص used to recite the above du`a. Ibn Kathir - P
251 - From Bukhari

8. Ibn Abbas narrates that Rasulullah ملس و هيلع - ىلص said “I do not pass any corner (at the time of tawaaf), but I
see an angel at that corner saying Ameen”. Thus when you pass by it, recite the above du`a. Ibid

“Our Lord! Lay not on us that burden which we have not the strength to bear. And pardon us; absolve us; and
have mercy on us; You alone are our Friend and Helper; help us to triumph over The unbelieving folk.”Al Baqarah
286

1. A narration by Abu Hurairah يضر هنع in Bukhari and Muslim proves that the above du`a when made by Nabi
ملس و هيلع - ىلص was accepted. Tafsir Mazhari Vol. 2. P. 165

2. Ibn Abbas هنع يضر narrates: We, as a group were sitting in the company of Nabi ملس و هيلع - ىلص. Jibra’il
م`سلا هيلع was also present. Suddenly, the sound of a door opening was heard from above. Jibra’il م`سلا هيلع lifted
his gaze to see. He then said “The door that has now opened does not open normally”.

The narrator says: Meanwhile an Angel descended and came to Nabi ملس و هيلع - ىلص and said “Glad tidings to
you for two such celestial lights which were not given to any Rasul before you. The first is Suratul Fatihah and the
second is the concluding ayah of Suratul Baqarah. If you read even one letter from it, you will attain that celestial
light”. Muslim

Note: It means that by reading “IHDINAS SIRATAL-MUSTAQIM” Allah will most certainly show you the right path
and secondly by reciting the last ayah of Suratul Baqarah, Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس will most surely accept your du`a and
grant you that which you have asked for. Mazhari Vol. 1. P. 14 & Vol. 2 P. 166

1. Abu Sa`id Ansari هنع يضر narrates that Rasulullah ملس و هيلع - ىلص said “The person who recites the last
two ayaat of Suratul Baqarah, it will suffice him for the entire night. Mazhari P. 167

never fails in His Promise.” Al Imran 9

1. The ayah (du`a) before this ayah was concerning steadfastness. Subsequently this du`a was not revealed for
any worldly motives. It was solely made for the Akhirah and to seek refuge from Jahannum, as our belief is “O
Allah You are going to gather us on such a day regarding which there is no doubt”. Mariful Qur’an - Vol. 2. P. 23

1. This du`a was made by the helpers of Esa م`سلا هيلع. When Esa م`سلا هيلع asked his nation who amongst them
would be his helpers, they agreed and read this du`a as emphasis of their claim. Mariful Quran Vol. 2. P. 70

“Our Lord! Forgive us our sins, and our excesses that we have committed in our affairs, and Lord! Keep us
firm-footed and grant us victory over the disbelieving folk.” Al Imran 147

1. No person can be assured that the good actions he is doing presently will be done continually. Therefore we
should express regret on the deficiency of our present actions and make it a habit to make du`a for steadfastness
in regard to our future actions. In the above du`a, firstly, forgiveness is being sought for previously committed
sins. This is an indication to the fact that whatever difficulties / problems befalls a person, be it in the form of
defeat from the enemies or any other problem, is in reality the consequence of a person’s sins. The remedy for
which is seeking repentance and forgiveness. Mariful Quran Vol. 2. P. 201

2. This ayah teaches us that whenever any calamity befalls a person, then together with utilising physical means,
one should also make du`a and ask for repentance as most of the calamities that befall a person are due to one’s
sins. Bayanul Qur’an P. 62

“Our Lord! Grant us that which You have promised to us through Your Apostles and disgrace us not on the
Day of Reckoning. Surely You never fail in Your Promise.”Al Imran 194

1. The meaning of these du`a (from 13-17) includes all the objectives/needs that a person wishes for: The final
objective of any person is twofold:

1) Gaining entry into Jannat.
2) Saving oneself from the fire of Jahannum.

And for these two objectives, there are two conditions.

i) Obedience and
ii) Being free from sin. Therefore, it adds up to four.

All the above are rendered in the above ayaat. Bayanul Qur’an Vol. 2. P. 85

1. Rasulullah ملس و هيلع - ىلص said “Destruction be to that person who recites these verses and does not ponder
regarding them”. Ayah 190 / 1) Ibn Kathir Vol. 1. P. 450

2. Abu Hurairah هنع يضر narrates, Rasulullah ملس و هيلع - ىلص used to recite the last 10 ayaat of Surah Al

“Our Lord! We have believed; so write us down with those who bear witness (to the truthfulness of Islam).”Al

1. The word “Amanna” does not refer to the Ahlul-Kitab’s past Iman but it refers to their bringing Iman of the
present and being included amongst the group of believers. The word Rabbana clarifies that they are bringing the
true Iman and not the superficial Iman like the hypocrites. By the word “Ash-shahidin” the ummah of Nabi - ىلص
ملس و هيلع is meant, those who will give testimony regarding the conveyance of the message of Nabi و هيلع - ىلص
ملس. Tafsir Mazhari Vol. 4. P. 18

RABBANA ANZIL `ALAYNA MA’IDATAM-MINAS SAMA‘I TAKUNU LANA IDAL-LI-’AWWALINA WA AKHIRINA WA
AYATAM-MINKA WARZUQNA WA ’ANTA KHAYRUR-RAZIQEEN.

“O Allah: Lord and Cherisher of us all! Send down to us a tray of food from heaven, that it may become a day of
rejoicing for all of us and (let it be) a Sign from You; and grant us sustenance and indeed You are the Best
Provider of all.”Al Maidah 114

1. This du`a was made by Esa م`سلا هيلع at the request of his helpers. They requested him to make du`a that
Allah send down food from the skies so that they might eat and their hearts can be at ease and be satisfied that
Esa م`سلا هيلع had spoken regarding his Rabb (Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس). When Esa هيلع م`سلا saw that their objective
was valid he made this du`a. Mariful Qur’an Vol. 3. P. 267

“Our Lord! We have wronged our own souls; and if You do not forgive us and have no mercy upon us, we shall
certainly be of the losers.”Al A’raf 23

“Our Lord! Place us not with the wrongdoing people.”Al A’raf 47

1. This du`a will be made by the people of “the heights” (between Jannah and Jahannum) when their faces will be
turned towards the fire of Jahannum. The meaning of the du`a is that “O Allah do not include us among the
dwellers of Jahannum who are all oppressors.” Mariful Qur’an Vol. 3. P. 564

“O our Lord! Decide between us and our people with truth, and You are Best to decide.”Al A’raf 89

1. This du`a was made by Shuaib م`سلا هيلع when his nation refused to accept the truth. Shuaib م`سلا هيلع turned
to Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس making du`a. Mariful Qur’an Vol. 3. P. 267

2. In reality Shuaib م`سلا هيلع made du`a for the destruction of the rejectors from amongst his nation. Allah هناحبس
ىلاعتو accepted this du`a and destroyed the nation by a great tremor. Ibid P.630

RABBANA ’AFRIGH `ALAYNA SABRAW-WA TA-WAFFANA MUSLIMIN!

“Our Lord! Pour out on us patience and cause us to die as Muslims (bowing to Your Will).”Al A’raf 126

1. In this du`a, there is an indication to the fact that if Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس does not wish and will, then man’s
courage and hope will be of no use. Therefore du`a is being made for firmness and steadfastness. Because it is
only steadfastness, patience and firmness which can make a person victorious over one’s opponents. Mariful Qur’an

the disbelieving folk.”Yunus 85 & 86

be accepted. Tafsir Mazhari Vol.5. P. 535

Ibrahim 41

1. This is also the du`a of Ibrahim م`سلا هيلع.

2. From these ayaat that appear before this du`a we learn the etiquettes of du`a, it must be made with utmost
humility and humbleness - also, the praises and glorification of Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس should be made with du`a. By
this, there is a greater possibility that the du`a will be accepted. Mariful Qur’an Vol. 5. 256

“O our Lord! Turn away from us the torment of the Hell; surely its torment is utter destruction.” Al Furqan 65 & 66

1. This du`a is a supplication which should be continuously made by the believers. Because one of their qualities,
is that despite being obedient to Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس, they still remain in fear regarding the punishment of Allah
ىلاعتو هناحبس, and regarding the Akhirah. Because of this fear they become practical, and continue making du`a.
Mariful Qur’an. Vol. 6. P. 504

2. Ali هنع يضر narrates that Nabi ملس و هيلع - ىلص has said: Allah sent wahi to one Nabi of the Bani Israil (i.e.
Dawud م`سلا هيلع) “Tell the obedient servants from your ummah not to only rely on their good actions, as on the
day of reckoning, whichever servant I wish to punish I will punish in conformance to my (justice) and tell the
disobedient servants not to throw themselves into destruction by their own hands (i.e. they should not give up
hope of forgiveness) as I will forgive major sins also if I wish, and I will not care (i.e. in giving anybody
punishment or forgiving anybody - Abu Naim.) Tafsir Mazhari Vol. 8 P. 486

O our Lord! Grant us in our wives and offspring the coolness of eyes and make us a leader of those who guard
themselves against evil. Al Furqan 74

1. Regarding the “coolness of the eyes” Hasan Basri states: The original coolness of the eyes is to see a persons
family involved in the obedience of Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس. The health and welfare and happiness of the family is also
included in it. Mariful Qur’an Vol. 6. P. 509

2. Allah’s ىلاعتو هناحبس chosen servants are not only concerned with their own reformation and are satisfied by
their good deeds alone. They are also concerned with the reformation and actions of their wives and children.
They continue to make an effort in this regard, and part of their effort is to make du`a also. Ibid

3. Qurtubi states: There can be nothing more soothing / cooling to the eyes than seeing a person’s wife and
children being obedient to Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس. Mazhari Vol. 8 P. 499

“Coolness of the eyes”
4. Ikramah says: The Mufassirin have not taken the meaning of beauty and grace. But they say it means “to be
obedient to Allah ىلاعتو هناحبس. Ibn Kathir Vol. 3 P. 342

wiping the dust off their heads (at the time of arising from their graves) and they will be saying the above. Ibn Kathir

O our Lord! Make them enter the Everlasting Gardens, which You have promised them, and to those
pardonable righteous of their parents and their wives and their offspring. Surely You are the All-Powerful, the
All-Wise and save them from punishments and he whom You save from punishments this Day, to him You have
indeed shown great mercy. And this is a mighty achievement. Al Mumin 8 & 9

1. This is also the du`a of the angels for the believers.

2. Saeed bin Jubair هنع يضر narrates: When a person will enter Jannah, he will enquire regarding the abode
of his father / brother and son. It will be said to him: “They did not reach your status as far as good deeds are
concerned.” The person will reply, “The good deeds I used to do were for myself as well as for them”. Hence they
will be joined with him. Thereafter Saeed recited the above ayah. Ibn Kathir Vol. 4 P. 78

3. Malik bin Ma’mul says that Aamir bin Shurahbil told him, O Malik In one aspect the Jews and Christians are
better then the Rawafidh. When the Jews were asked: Who were the most virtuous people in your religion. They
would reply: The Companions of Musa م`سلا هيلع and when the Christians are asked the same question, they
replied the helpers of Isa م`سلا هيلع. But when the Rawafidh were asked: Who are the worst people in your
religion. They replied the Sahabah م`سلا هيلع (companions) of Nabi. Mazhari Vol. 11 P. 401

1. Mujahid states that the Believers will recite this du`a at the time when they will see that the celestial light of the
Hypocrites had disappeared on the day of Qiyamah. Ibn Kathir Vol. 4 P. 418/9

2. On the bridge of Sirat the Believers will see (Nur) celestial light in front of them as well as on their right hand
side. When they will see that the (Nur) celestial light of the Hypocrites has disappeared they will recite this du`a.
The (Nur) celestial light will be in proportion to a persons actions. Therefore the du`a is being made to perfect the
celestial light. Mazhari Vol. 11 P. 594
