Answer:

 

Duas

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

There are many duas and supplications that the believers have made, which have been related by Allah Subhanah in the Holy Quran. The Messenger of Allah, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws) himself used to invoke Allah and supplicate to Him for everything; big and small. Whatever our needs, we must only supplicate and make dua to Allah Alone, our Lord, Creator and Sustainer. No one is worthy of our supplication, our dua, our invocation and our worship, except the One Merciful and Bounteous Lord.

 

Here are some examples of the duas as related by Allah in the Holy Quran, which can be used by the believers.

 

If one is going on an important mission, we may use the supplication as made by Prophet Moses (a.s.) to Allah.

 

Chapter 20 Surah Taha verses 25-28:O my Lord, open my breast for me, and make my task easy for me. And remove the impediment from my tongue so that people may understand my speech.

 

If in a state of difficulty and misery, we may use the supplication as made by Prophet Yunus (a.s.) to beg Allah to help us.

 

Chapter 21 Surah Anbiyaa verse 87:There is no god but You. Glory be to You. I have indeed done wrong.

 

If one craves for offspring, we may use the supplication as made by Prophet Zacharias (a.s.):

 

Chapter 21 Surah Anbiyaa verse 89:O my Lord, do not leave me childless, though You Alone are the best of inheritors.

 

If one is in a state of fear, we may use the following supplication as guided by Allah.

 

Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imraan verse 173:Allah is All-Sufficient for us, for He is the Best Protector.

 

If one is ill of health, we may use the supplication as made by Prophet Ayyub (a.s.):

 

Chapter 21 Surah Anbiyaa verse 83:(O my Lord) Truly, distress has seized me, and You are the Most Merciful of all those who show mercy.

 

If one wants to be guided aright, we may use the following supplication as guided by Allah:

 

Chaper 1 Surah Fatihah verse 5:(O our Lord) Guide us to the Straight Path (Siraat al Mustaqeem).

 

There are literally hundreds of duas and supplications which were made by the Last Messenger of Allah (saws), and it would require a book if all of them were to be related. The one thing to remember here in all our supplications is to Praise and Glorify Allah, and show our absolute weakness, inability, humility, and sub-serviance to our Lord and Creator. Then humbly invoke Him Alone for all our needs, for Allah Alone is Hearer and Answerer of all our supplications.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 186:And if My servants ask you, O Prophet, concerning Me, tell them that I am quite near to them. I hear and answer the prayer of the suppliant, when he calls on Me. So let them respond to My call and believe in Me. (Convey this to them), perhaps they may be guided aright!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 40 Surah Mumin verse 60:And Your Lord says, Call upon Me. I will answer your prayers. Those who disdain My worship on account of arrogance, shall certainly enter Hell in disgrace!

 

The Messenger of Allah (saws) said in an authentic narration: The dua is indeed the (essence of) worship.

 

The Messenger of Allah (saws) said (the meaning thereof): No supplication of the believer is unanswered by Allah Subhanah. One of three things happen when a believer supplicates his Lord.

Allah may give him what he has asked for (if it is indeed beneficial to him in this life).

Allah may reserve the thing for him for the Hereafter (if not beneficial to him in the worldly life).

Allah will forgive the sins of the supplicant.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
