Jaami’ Dua- Prayers for any occasion: Lesson 36

Oh Allah! We ask of You all the good things that Your Prophet Muhammad ( ) asked from You. And we seek refuge with You from all the evils against which Your Prophet Muhammad ( ) sought Your refuge. You are the Helper and You accomplish our prayers. And there is no power and no strength except with Allah.[1]


Abu Umaamah (Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah ( ) used to recite so many supplications that we were not able to memorize them. Thus we said: Oh Messenger of Allah! You have supplicated so many du’a that we are not able to memorize them. He said: “Shall I direct you to one which will comprehend all of them? Say the words above.”  (Tirmidhi)

Oh Changer of Hearts! Make our hearts firm on Your faith.[3]


Shahr bin Haushab (Allah be pleased with him) relates that he asked Hadhrat Umm-Salamah (Allah be pleased with her): O Ummul-Mu’mineen! What was the supplication made most often by the Messenger of Allah ( ) when he used to be in your house? She said: He most often used to supplicate: “Oh Changer of Hearts! Make my heart firm in Your faith!”  (Tirmidhi)

Jaami’ Dua: Lesson 39

Oh Allah! Truly I seek refuge in You from anxiety and grief; and I seek refuge in You from inability and laziness; and I seek refuge in You from miserliness and faint-heartedness; and I seek refuge in You from the burden of debt and the coercion of men.[4]

Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Messenger of Allah ( ) said that if anyone has anxiety or is in debt, he should read, morning and evening, the dua above. (Abu Dawood)

Jaami’ Dua: Lesson 40

Oh Allah! Truly You are the Forgiver, You love Forgiveness, so forgive us.[5]

Abu Bakr as-Siddeeq (Allah be pleased with him) reports that the Prophet ( ) said: “Ask Allah for forgiveness (‘afw) and well-being (‘aafiyah), for no one is given anything better than well-being after being blessed with faith (yaqeen).” 

Abu Fadl ‘Abbaas ibn ‘Abdul-Muttalib (Allah be pleased with him) relates: I asked the Messenger of Allah ( ): O Messenger of Allah! Please teach me a prayer that I may ask from Allah. He said: “Seek well-being (‘aafiyah) from Allah.” Hadhrat ‘Abbaas waited for some days and then went to him again and once more asked: O Messenger of Allah! Tell me something which I may ask from Allah. He ( ) said: “O ‘Abbaas! O uncle of the Messenger of Allah! Beg Allah for well-being in this life and the Hereafter.” (Tirmidhi)
