Powerful yet Simple Duas

I have collected some simple duas which take less time to recite but have huge benefits in this world and in the hereafter. Remember me in your duas.

1. The dearest words to Allah are:

  1. SubhanAllah (Glory be to Allah)
  2. Alhamdulillah(All Praises be to Allah)
  3. la ilaha illallah (There is no deity worthy of worship except Allah)
  4. Allahu Akbar (Allah is the Greatest)

Best way is to recite the above very often. Recommended is SubhanAllah(33 times) + Alhamdulillah(33 times) + Allahu Akbar(34 times) before going to bed. Makes things easy for us.

2. Recite this dua three times after Fajr and after Maghrib.

        Allahumma inni as’alukal Jannata  (O Allah! I ask you to grant me paradise)

Ask for Jannat three times, then Jannah says O Allah Let him enter

3. Recite this dua seven times after Fajr and after Maghrib

       Allahumma ajirni minannar    (O Allah! Protect me from the fire)

If you die that night, Allah will write for you protection from the fire i.e., Hell Fire

4. Recite this dua 100 times in the morning and 100 times in the evening, which is enough.

      Subhanallahi wa bihamdihi     (Allah is free from imperfection and His is the praise)

5. Recite this dua after maghrib to be saved from a calamity

      A’oothu Bikale-ma-til-lahit-tam-maate min Shar-re ma Khalaq  (I seek refuge with the complete words of Allah)

6. Recite this dua 3 times after fajr and after maghrib. Thus will not suffer any sudden affliction.

    Bismillahl alethee la yadhuru ma ‘ismuhu sha-e’ feel ardh wa fees sama ‘ wa who was samee’ul aleem.  (In the name of Allah, when Whose name is mentioned nothing on Earth or in Heaven can cause harm, and He is the Hearer, the Knower.)

 7. Whoever recites this dua 100 times a day, will have a recompense equal to that of freeing ten slaves. Also, 100 good actions are written for him, 100 wrong actions are erased from him, and it is a protection from Satan for that day until the night. No one does anything more excellent than someone who does more than that.”

    La illaha illallah, wah-dahu la sharika lah, Lahul-mulku wa lahul hamd, wa huwa ‘ala Kul-li shayin Qadeer.        (There is no god but Allah, alone, without any partner. The Kingdom and praise belong to Him and He has power over everything.)


Best Ramadan duas


للّهُـمَّ إِنِّي أَعْوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الهَـمِّ وَ الْحُـزْنِ، والعًجْـزِ والكَسَلِ والبُخْـلِوالجُـبْنِ، وضَلْـعِ الـدَّيْنِ وغَلَبَـةِ الرِّجال

O Allah, I take refuge in You from anxiety and sorrow, weakness and laziness, miserliness and cowardice, the burden of debts and from being over powered by men.

رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِيالدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ
Rubbana aatina fid-dunya hassana,wa fil akhirati hassana, waqina ‘adhab an-nar

Our Lord, give us in this world [that which is] good and in the Hereafter [that which is] good and protect us from the punishment of the Fire. 2:201

رَبِّ اجْعَلْنِي مُقِيمَالصَّلَاةِ وَمِن ذُرِّيَّتِي ۚ رَبَّنَا وَتَقَبَّلْ دُعَاءِ
رَبَّنَا اغْفِرْ لِيوَلِوَالِدَيَّ وَلِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ يَوْمَ يَقُومُ الْحِسَابُ

My Lord, make me an establisher of prayer, and [many] from my descendants. Our Lord, and accept my supplication. Our Lord, forgive me and my parents and the believers the Day the account is established. 14:40-41

اللّهُـمَّ إِنِّـي أسْـأَلُـكَ العَـفْوَوَالعـافِـيةَ في الدُّنْـيا وَالآخِـرَة ، اللّهُـمَّ إِنِّـي أسْـأَلُـكَالعَـفْوَ وَالعـافِـيةَ في ديني وَدُنْـيايَ وَأهْـلي وَمالـي ، اللّهُـمَّاسْتُـرْ عـوْراتي وَآمِـنْ رَوْعاتـي ، اللّهُـمَّ احْفَظْـني مِن بَـينِ يَدَيَّوَمِن خَلْفـي وَعَن يَمـيني وَعَن شِمـالي ، وَمِن فَوْقـي ، وَأَعـوذُ بِعَظَمَـتِكَأَن أُغْـتالَ مِن تَحْتـي

Allahumma inni as-alukaal-‘afwa wal ‘afiyata fid dunya wal akhira. Allahumma inni as-aluka al ‘afwa walafiyata fee deeni wa dunyaya wa ahlee wa malee. Allahumma ustur ‘awrati wa aminrow’ati. Allahumma ahfadhnee min bayni yadayya min khalfi wa ‘an yameeni wa ‘anshimali wa min fowqi wa a’oodhu bi ‘adhmatika an aghtaala min tahti.

“O Allah, I ask You for pardon and well-being in this life and the next. O Allah,I ask You for pardon and well-being in my religious and worldly affairs, and my family and my wealth. O Allah, veil my weaknesses and set at ease my dismay. O Allah, preserve me from the front and from behind and on my right and on my left and from above, and I take refuge with You lest I be swallowed up by the earth.”


اللّهُـمَّ إِنِّـي أَسْأَلُـكَ عِلْمـاً نافِعـاً وَرِزْقـاً طَيِّـباً ،وَعَمَـلاً مُتَقَـبَّلاً

Allahuma inni as-aluka‘ilman nafi’an wa rizqan tayyiban wa ‘amalan matqaballa

“O Allah, I ask You for knowledge which is beneficial and sustenance which is good, and deeds which are acceptable. [to be said after giving salam for the fajr prayer]”


اللّهُـمَّ أَعِـنِّي عَلـى ذِكْـرِكَ وَشُكْـرِك ، وَحُسْـنِ عِبـادَتِـك
Allahuma a’inni ‘aladhikrika washukrika wahusni‘ibadatik

“O Allah, help me to remember You, to thank You, and to worship You in the best of manners.”


اللّهُـمَّ إِنِّـي أَسْأَلُـكَ الجَـنَّةَ وأََعوذُ بِـكَ مِـنَ الـنّار

Allahuma inni as-aluka al-jannata wa a’udhubika min an-nar.

“O Allah, I ask You to grant me Paradise and I take refuge in You from the Fire.”

Coming back to Allah – part I

Assalam alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu

These are the days when I am wondering about “did it take one or two calamities to bring me back to Allah’s way?”. Though I am a born muslim and kind of prayed sincerely some days, missed out on prayer some days. Tried not to miss any Jumah Salah. I never really saw how much I was engrossed in worldly affairs until recently. And looking back, Alhamdulillah, as Allah promised, he gave a blow or two to my consciousness, before I came to realize the truth.

Ye shall certainly be tried and tested in your possessions and in your personal selves. (3:186)

Be sure We shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil); but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere. (2:155)

I am grateful to Almighty Allah(SWT) for lifting up the screen from my heart and showing me the way. I pray to Allah to keep me on his path my entire life and let me not go astray ever again. Ameen.

“O Allah! Let our hearts never go astray after You have guided us to the right path; bestow upon us your mercy. You are The Most Generous.”

The incidents which were happening one after the another, I perceived them as calamities in my life. All of a sudden, I realized these are tests Allah is giving me, and my only recourse is to seek Allah and get closer to Allah.

I yearn to change my lifestyle to include more ibadah, more dhikr, more sunnah Alhamdulillah. I am working towards it and Insha’Allah Allah(SWT) will guide me.

Give me patience

In the process to discovering a few intrinsic details about Islam and the power of Dua in Islam, I understood patience is utmost important in the process. It is required that we keep patience, keep making Dua till we get what we want and believe that Allah has the Grandest and Best of the plans for each one of us.

I was looking at this one project opportunity in KSA(Kingdom of Saudi Arabia). I would so love to go there and see the work culture. How the place where our beloved Prophet(SAW) was born and lived is? What is the culture? What can I learn? And I am planning to learn Arabic as a language Insha’Allah.

Let me tell you, the concept of having separate lifts(elevators) for men and women… awesome. I totally want to go and experience it personally. It must be bliss, going from a place where men and women are sandwiched together in the same lift.

I am hoping and I am praying constantly for Allah(SWT) to help me in succeeding in this endeavor. I also find keeping patience has been difficult for me my entire life. I can see that I am improving Alhamdulillah. I will keep my patience and will continue to supplicate to Allah(SWT) to grace me with an opportunity to visit this beautiful place and leave me with beautiful pages in the book of my life.
