Important Duas

Muslims use the Quran, which is very important to them, to help them with everything. Making dua is very important in the Islamic faith because Allah tells people to call on Him and ask for help and forgiveness. Prayer can help you at any time, place, and no matter what. In addition, many teachers throughout history told stories about specific prayers they said, which you could use if needed. Here are ten of these kinds of important duas from the Quran.

وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَقُولُ رَبَّنَآ ءَاتِنَا فِى ٱلدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةًۭ وَفِى ٱلْـَٔاخِرَةِ حَسَنَةًۭ وَقِنَا عَذَابَ ٱلنَّار

“Oh, Lord! Please give us good things in this world and the next, and keep us safe from the fire. (2:201 in the Quran)

It is one of the most well-known duas, and the Prophet PBUH said it many times. We pray to Allah to give us all the good things we want in life. These include being physically healthy, happy, and joyful, growing spiritually or intellectually, and doing good things for others, like donating money to charities that help those less fortunate than us.

٣٩ ٱلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ ٱلَّذِى وَهَبَ لِى عَلَى ٱلْكِبَرِ إِسْمَـٰعِيلَ وَإِسْحَـٰقَ ۚ إِنَّ رَبِّى لَسَمِيعُ ٱلدُّعَآءِ

رَبِّ ٱجْعَلْنِى مُقِيمَ ٱلصَّلَوٰةِ وَمِن ذُرِّيَّتِى ۚ رَبَّنَا وَتَقَبَّلْ دُعَآءِ

“Our Lord!” Make me and the people who believe in my heirs always pray. Dear Lord! Please accept my prayers. Dear Lord! Please forgive me, my parents, and all Christians on the Day of Judgment. 14:40–41 of the Quran

This dua was something Prophet Ibrahim would ask Allah to help his children and grandchildren pray continuously and to forgive his parents and all believers on the Day of Judgment. 1. This is a prayer that all Muslims can say for their families and the whole community, or ummah. 

 ٱلَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَٰجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّـٰتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍۢ وَٱجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا

Dear Lord! God, please give us good wives and children who will make us happy and show others how to be good. (25:74 in the Quran)

This dua from Allah SWT will not only get you into paradise but also make you better there. We can ask Him for good partners and children with this dua. 

رَبِّ هَبْ لِى مِن لَّدُنكَ ذُرِّيَّةًۭ طَيِّبَةً ۖ إِنَّكَ سَمِيعُ ٱلدُّعَآءِ ٣

“Our Lord!” By your grace, give me good children. “There’s no doubt that you hear all prayers.” (3:38 in the Quran)

If you want to grow your family, the following dua is very good for you. Zakariyya asked Allah for a good child without thinking about how old he was, and Allah gave him just that. 

Important Duas

رَبِّ ٱبْنِ لِى عِندَكَ بَيْتًۭا فِى ٱلْجَنَّةِ وَنَجِّنِى مِن فِرْعَوْنَ وَعَمَلِهِۦ وَنَجِّنِى مِنَ

“Our Lord!” Make me a home in Paradise close to you, save me from Pharaoh and his bad actions, and keep me away from people who do bad things. (66:11 in the Quran)

During her husband’s suffering, Asiyah, the wife of the Pharaoh of Egypt, converted to Islam and said this prayer. Asiyah saw her house in Paradise as she died because Allah gave it to her. Muslims can still say this prayer to ask Allah to take them to Paradise and protect them from being mistreated and abused. 

فَاطِرَ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ أَنتَ وَلِىِّۦ فِى ٱلدُّنْيَا وَٱلْـَٔاخِرَةِ ۖ تَوَفَّنِى مُسْلِمًۭا وَأَلْحِقْنِى بِٱلصَّـٰلِحِينَ

“[O] Creator of the sky and the ground! You will be my guardian in this world and the next. Let me die as a Muslim who agrees to obey, and put me with the good people.” (The Quran 12:101)

Prophet Yusuf said this prayer after becoming a leader and getting back together with his family. He asked Allah for a good finish despite having what he wanted. Yusuf starts his dua by calling on Allah as the One who made everything. He then asks his lord to let him die as a Muslim in obedience to Him and let him go to Paradise.

لَّآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّآ أَنتَ سُبْحَـٰنَكَ إِنِّى كُنتُ مِنَ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ

“There is no other god worth worshiping besides You.” Praise be to You! I’ve done something wrong.” 21:87 in the Quran.

This prayer to turn away from sins comes from Prophet Yunus. When he tried to convert his community to Islam, they turned him down, so he left without Allah’s permission to carry out his task. He finally got to the bottom of a whale, where Yunus said this prayer for forgiveness in which he admitted that everything belongs to Allah’s Oneness. It worked! People can pray to Him with these words to honestly ask for forgiveness, not just once, but over and over again, because there will be times when we need it more than anything else.

رَبَّنَا لَا تُزِغْ قُلُوبَنَا بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَيْتَنَا وَهَبْ لَنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ رَحْمَةً ۚ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ ٱلْوَهَّابُ

“Oh, Lord! Don’t let our hearts wander after you’ve led us. Please be kind to us. “You are, in fact, the Giver of all good things.” 3:8 in the Quran

We learned from the Prophet (PBUH) that religion changes over time. It goes up and down, making waves. God puts us through some tests and trials to return us to him. We should check our Imaan level daily and work on it from there. 

جَآءَتْنَا ۚ رَبَّنَآ أَفْرِغْ عَلَيْنَا صَبْرًۭا وَتَوَفَّنَا مُسْلِمِينَ

“Oh, Lord! Give us patience, and let us die while still following You as Muslims.” (7:126 in the Quran)

When the Pharaoh tested Musa with a group of witches, Musa beat them and led them to Islam. This dua was said by the sorcerers when they were being harmed. In this verse, they ask Allah to help them stay strong any time things get hard and to keep believing even after they die.   

رَبَّنَآ إِنَّكَ جَامِعُ ٱلنَّاسِ لِيَوْمٍ لَّا رَيْبَ فِيهِ ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يُخْلِفُ ٱلْمِيعَادَ

“Oh, Lord! Take this from us. You really are the All-Hearing, All-Knowing.” (2:127 in the Quran)

When Prophet Ibrahim and his son Ismail finished building the Kaaba, the House of Allah, they asked Allah to accept their worship. Prayer, giving to others, and reading the Quran are all acts of worship we should do daily. May Allah SWT get everything we do. Yes, please!
