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.

Allahu mash ragh sudoo ranaa lil islaam
Allahumma ghab bib ilaynal emaana wa zay-yinhu fee quloo bi naa wa kar rih ilaynal kufra wal fusooqa wal ‘isyaan

O Allah! Open our hearts for Islam
O Allah! Make our faith something cherished for us,
And embellish with that our hearts
And make repulsive and a hateful for us unbelief, immorality, and transgression.
O Allah! Make us of those who are rightly guided.

Allahumma in nee a’uthu bi ka mi nal ham mi wal ghuzni,
wa a’uthubi ka mi nal ‘ijzi wasl kas li,
wa a’uthubi ka mi nal bughli wal jubni,
wa a’uthubi ka mi nal ghaula ba tid dayni wa qohri rijaal,
Allahumak fi nee bi ghalaa li ka ‘an gharaa mi ka wa agh ni nee bi fadli ka ‘am man si waak

O Allah! I seek refuge in Thee from anxiety and grief.
I seek refuge in Thee from inability and sloth.
I seek refuge in Thee from niggardliness and faint-heartedness.
I seek refuge in Thee from the burden of indebtedness, and the coercion of men.
O Allah! Let They lawful sustenance suffice me against Thine unlawful sustenance,
And make me, the Thy grace, dependent on none save Thyself.
