The Power Of Dua

Dua for the Night of Power

This dua should be recited on Laylatul Qadr, so it is the best dua for the last 10 days of Ramadan. Recite this dua every night, as much as you can, over these last 10 days of Ramadan to receive Allah’s (SWT) mercy.

الْلَّهُمَّ اِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي

Allaahumma innaka ‘afuwwun, tuhibb al-‘afwa, fa’fu ‘anni

“O Allah, You are the Most forgiving, and You love to forgive, so forgive me.”

Dua for protection

Asking for Allah’s (SWT) protection during Ramadan is important, and in doing so we can seek protection from hellfire.

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ رِضَاكَ وَالجَنَّةَ ، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ سَخَطِكَ وَالنَّارِ

Allaahumma innee as-aluka Ridaaka wal Jannah wa a’audhu’bika min sakhatika wan-naar

O Allah, I ask of Your pleasure and for Paradise, and I seek refuge from Your displeasure and from the Hellfire

Dua for your parents

Our parents are some of the most important people in our lives and we should dedicate time to make dua for them during these last 10 days of Ramadan. Share Allah’s (SWT) blessings with those who raised you!

 رَّبِّ ارْحَمْهُمَا كَمَا رَبَّيَانِي صَغِيرًا

Rabbi irhamhuma kama rabbayani sagheera

My Lord, have mercy upon them (parents) as they brought me up [when i was] small.

Dua for after your fast

You can recite this dua throughout the last 10 days of Ramadan once you have broken your fast in the evenings to give thanks to Allah (SWT) and seek His blessings.

‏‏ ذَهَبَ الظَّمَأُ وَابْتَلَّتِ الْعُرُوقُ وَثَبَتَ الأَجْرُ إِنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ

Dhahabaz Zama’u wab tal latil uruqoo wa thabbatal ajru inshaAllah

Thirst has gone, the arteries are moist, and the reward is sure if Allah wills.

Dua for guidance

During the last 10 days of Ramadan, Allah (SWT) is especially close to us and accepts our duas with contentment for our striving towards Him, so what better time could there be to ask for guidance!

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ الهُدَى وَ التُّقَى وَ العَفَافَ وَ الغِنَى

Allāhumma Innī As’aluka al-Hudā Wat-Tuqā Wal-Afāfa Wal-Ghinā

O Allah, I ask You for guidance and piety, and abstinence (from the unlawful) and modesty, and contentment and sufficiency.

Dua for wisdom

Reciting a dua for wisdom throughout the last 10 days of Ramadan is a wonderful way to ask the Almighty for the knowledge we need to be faithful to Islam and protect our brothers and sisters in humanity.

اللَّهُمَّ انْفَعْنِي بِمَا عَلَّمْتَنِي وَ عَلِّمْنِي مَا يَنْفَعُنِي وَ زِدْنِي عِلْمًا

Allaahum-manfa’nee bimā ‘allamtanee wa ‘allimnee mā yanfa’unee wa zidnee ‘ilmā

O Allah, benefit me with what You have taught me, and teach me that which will benefit me, and increase me in knowledge.

Dua for the deceased

Something special that we can do for our loved ones who have passed away makes dua for them. Over the last 10 days of Ramadan, our duas for the deceased will provide them with blessings in Jannah.

اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لَهُ الَّلهُمَّ ثَبِّتْهُ

Allaahum-maghfir lahu Allaahumma thabbithu

O Allah, forgive him. O Allah, strengthen him.
