Heart-felt Dua'a

Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barahatuh,

Insha'Allah you are all enjoying the blessings of Allah (swt).

I'm sad :'(

Time for a dua'a!


O Allah, O Karim,

Please have Mercy on me.

O Allah, O Karim,

Please forgive me

for the sins I committed in the past

and those I will commit in the future.

O Allah,

have Mercy on all the Muslimeen,

and guide them.

Guide me O Allah,

and guide my parents,

my siblings, my cousins,

my aunts and uncles,

and so forth.

O Allah,

I ask You

to strengthen my Iman and the Iman of those around me.

I ask You to soften my heart

and to soften the hearts of the Believers.

O Allah,

forgive me for my shortcomings,

for only You are Perfect.

O Allah,

Please forgive me

if I ever got too wrapped in a matter

that I didn't have the time to utter Your Name.

O Allah,

Please Forgive me for all the salat I missed

because of ignorance or laziness,

Please forgive me for all the fasts I didn't make up.

O Allah,

Please forgive me

for the quarter I never dropped

into the metal cup for the homeless man begging on the street.

O Allah,

Please spark the love of Islam in my heart

and in the hearts of every single Muslim

until it gets implanted in their children

and their children’s children and so on.

O Allah,

I ask that You help me for I am weak

and will only grow stronger by Your Strength,

so Allah Please Strengthen me

to fight Shaitan and his whispers.

And if I ever fell into his trap

and followed my desire,

then sincerely forgive me,

for that displays not only my weakness,

but Your Greatness as well.

O Allah, Please lighten the punishment in the grave

for those before us and those after us.

O Allah, lighten the punishment

and shed light into every Muslim's grave.

O Allah, if I ever was too afraid

to stand up for Your Deen

because of what others would think,

then Forgive me, for I was a fool for doing so.

O Allah, Please Protect me and every other Muslim,

especially the orphans and the widows.

O Allah, Please Strengthen the faith

of the destitute Muslims around the world,

so they have hope to live.

O Allah, if I ever forgot to do du'a

for even one suffering Muslim,

then Forgive me

for then it is as if I haven't done du'a

for the entire Ummah.

O Allah,

Please be the Light of my eyes, ears and heart.

O Allah,

Please be the Light on the sides of me

and the Light behind me

and the Light in front of me.

O Allah, Please forgive me

for all the foul words I spoke

either out of ignorance or

because I was trying to be "cool."

O Allah, please forgive me

if I never stopped to think about You,

due to "other important things."

O Allah, Please forgive me

for not having enough time

or creating time for reading the Qur'an.

O Allah, please forgive me

for listening to music

and watching movies and TV excessively.

O Allah, please forgive me

for all the yelling I've done

and the arguments I've been in.

For the only time

the voice should be raised

is for Your Praises!

O Allah, please forgive me

for my disrespect towards my family,

elders, siblings and so on.

O Allah, please forgive me

for any backbiting I have been accused of,

whether I did it consciously or unconsciously.

O Allah, Rab al-Alamin,

Forgive me,

Forgive me for everything.

So for everyone,

every single Muslim,

dead or alive,

I do du'a that you forgive them

for all their sins.

O Allah,

Please Please Please

help the suffering Muslims

of Kashmir, Palestine, Chechnya,

Bosnia, Gujarat, Nigeria,

Iraq, Afghanistan and everywhere around the world.

Please O Allah, make the Mujahideen victorious,

and let the beauty of Islam reign!

O Allah, Give victory to the Muslims!

O Allah, Please let True Islam reign!

O Allah, Please increase our knowledge

of Your Deen and this world.

Oh Allah, Please Help us all and guide us,

for You are Everything to us.

O Allah,

I cannot stress how much I ask

for Your Forgiveness and Your Guidance.

O Allah,

I fear You,

I fear You soooo much words cannot describe.

I fear the day when I will meet You,

and I WILL meet You.

When we are one on one,

and I have no one's help or support.

No one can take the blame for me

nor I for them.

The only thing I will have

is a little book given to me by You

that has my deeds.

O Allah,

Please porgive me for my thoughts,

for even though I get sinned only for my actions,

I cannot help but feel guilty for my thoughts

and I ask You to Forgive me for them

and to clear my mind of any impurities

until You become the Only thing on my mind.

O Allah,

Please forgive me

if I ever did anything out of gain

for this life and not for Your pleasure.

If I ever did anything to "show off"

then please forgive me for that.

O Allah,

I do du'a

that You grant us all God-Fearing spouses

and grant us righteous children.

Oh Allah,

I do du'a

that You continue to strengthen this Ummah

until the Day of Resurrection.

O Allah,

Forgive me

for whatever I have not mentioned,

for I am bound to forget

....but You,

through Your Greatness...

You Never Forget.

O Allah,

Please Grant

all the Muslims

Jannah-tul-Firdaws.

O Allah,

I ask that You shed Your Mercy

on all the Prophets (peace be upon them)

and on all the Angels (peace be upon them).

Lastly, I du'a

shed Your Mercy

on the Prophet Muhammad (saw) ,

his family and companions.

I du'a

that you grant Muhammad (saw)

the Highest Station in Paradise.

Rabinna Aataina

Fiduniya Hasinathow

Wa Fil Akhirati Hasinathow,

Wakina Adhab innaar

Ameen.

Insha'Allah make dua'a for this sister of yours,

ma'asalaam =)

Such a beautiful du'a! I'm still thinking about it over in my head and it really feels like you've covered everything- even the things you haven't covered!

Ameen to each and every bit of it, truly from the bottom of my heart.

P.S. - Can you please make it so there's a link to comment from every entry page? I have to be on your home page in order to comment, otherwise.
