Rabbe Hab Lee Mil Ladunka Zurriyyatan Tayyebah Innaka Samee-u’d Doa’ O Lord, bestow me a goodly offspring from You; verily, You are the hearer of prayer”. (Surah Aal-e-Imraan, 3:38) When Hazrat Zakariyya (a.s.) saw Janab-e- Maryam (s.a.) receiving her sustenance direct from Allah, he was so much convinced of His extraordinary benevolence and its miraculous nature that he beseeched Him to give him a tayyab (virtuous, blessed and good) son, he could not normally have since his wife was barren. Recitati of this dua’ 7 ti after every wajib salaat will make your children pious and obedient.

Rabbanaghfi lanaa Zonoobanaa wa israafanaa fee amrenaa wa sabbit aqdaamanaa wan surnaa a’lal qawmil kaafi een O our Lord, forgive us our sins and our excesses in our affairs, and set our foothold fi and help us against the disbelieving people.

By reason of their steadfastness and their asking for protecti and seeking refuge with Allah, Allah granted them victory against infi glorifi d their mission and enhanced their reputati

As human beings we may commit mistakes and not follow the instructi given by Allah, so we must seek His forgiveness with fi determinati that we will not commit such sins any more. We must also recite this dua’a to remain fi in our faith no matter what the temptati are, so that we may defeat our enemies and the enemies of Allah. The dua’ can also be recited to remove hardships and difficulti put in our way by our enemies so as to induce us to give up the right way of doing things as Allah has asked us to do.

Rabbanaa Maa Khalaqta Haazaa Baatelaa Subhaanaka Faqenaa A’zaaban Naar
O our Lord, You have not created (all) this in vain. Glory be to You. Save us then from the torment of the fi e. (Surah Aal-e-Imraan, 3:191) The Holy Qur’an says that those who remember Allah all the ti and try to understand the nature of His creati recite this dua’, because in the creati
of the heavens and the earth and in the difference of night and day are signs of His omnipotence for the men of understanding. Recite this dua’ in the qunoot of tahajjud (night prayer)

Rabbanaa Innanaa Same’Naa Monaadeyay Yonaadee Lil-Eemaane An Aamenoo Berabbekum Fa-Aamannaa Rabbanaa Faghfi Lanaa Zonoobanaa Wa Kaffi A’nnaa Sayye- Aatenaa Wa Tawaffanaa Ma-A’l Abraar O our Lord, we have indeed heard the voice of a preacher (messenger) calling (us) to faith: ‘Believe in your Lord.’ So we believed. Our Lord, forgive us then our sins, and remove from us our evil deeds, and make us die with the virtuous. (Surah Aal-e-Imraan, 3:193) This is the conti ti of dua’. The wise men hear the message of Allah, and, as they have already understood the meaning of the nature of divine creati readily accept the true faith, the belief in the one and only Allah, seeking His forgiveness for the sins they have committed in the days of ignorance; and not forgetti that Allah (alone) can keep them on the right path ti the lat day of their lives in this world, invoke Him to make them die as true believers. Make a habit of reciti this dua’ because there is nothing worth keeping with yourself except the true faith to the last breath of your life, in order to obtain permanent bliss in the next world. This world is a   of test and trial for you. Even after a whole lifeti of true faith if a person for a single insignificant moment, does not believe in the one and only Almighty Allah in the last breath of his life, he is forever condemned to fi e of hell.

Wa Aati Maa Wa-Adtanaa A’laa Rosoleka Wa Laa Tukhzenaa Yawmal Qeyaamah Innaka Laa Tukhleful Meea’ad O our Lord, give us what You have promised us through Your messengers, and do not disgrace us on the day of resurrecti Verily, You do not break Your promise. (Surah Aal-e-Imraan, 3:193) Through this dua’ the faithful servants of Allah, who have accepted the true religion, revealed by Allah through His messengers, invoke Allah to keep them safe from the shame and disgrace, the evil doers will face on the day of judgement, because rewards and favours have been promised only for those who believe in Allah and do good deeds in this world. Every faithful should recite this dua’ to receive favours of Allah on the day of judgement.
