Duah

Duah in Islam is a wonderful gift granted to Muslims to appeal directly to our Creator. Duah provides the framework within which dependent Man appeal to his Omnipotent Lord. The more man raises  his hands in supplication , the more he realizes his utter dependency and Reality of his Creator. Milestones like birthdays and anniversaries are also occasions to reflect upon the endless Mercies of our Creator, along with the balance sheet of our good and not-so-good deeds. Duah thus also serves as a powerful bridgehead between our natural and supernatural worlds.

Peace be upon you, O ye dwellers in these abodes from among the believers and Muslims.
Behold, if Allah wills, we shall meet you.
We beseech of Allah safety for us and for you.

Rabba-nagh-fir lanaa dhunoobanaa
wa israa-fanaa fee amrinaa

Our Lord! Forgive us our sins and anything
we may have done that transgressed our duty.
Establish our feet firmly,
and help us against those who resist faith.
