40 Rabbana Dua from Quran

Praise be to Allah I, we thank Him, seek His Help and His Forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah I from the evils of ourselves and that of our bad deeds. He whom Allah I guides, is truly guided, and he whom Allah I leaves to stray, none can guide him.

This is a compilation of forty such verses, which are supplications imploring Allah for favours, all of which start with beseeching Allah with His title of, the Lord of all.

If a person reads it with humility and subjugation, there will be a feeling of contentment

Dua #1.

رَبَّنَا تَقَبَّلْ مِنَّا إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ السَّمِيعُ العَلِيمُ
البقرة :127

Rabbana taqabbal minna innaka antas Sameeaul Aleem

Our Lord! Accept (this service) from us: For Thou art the All-Hearing, the All-knowing - 2:127

This dua was read by Ibrahim and Ismail (A) when they completed the building of the Kabah.

The lesson is that a person must not be satisfied with actions only. Rather, after the action, be humble and beg Allah I to accept it. This is taught from the action of Ibrahim (A). After completing such a lofty action he does not express pride, rather he asks Allah I to accept the action.

Dua #2.

رَبَّنَا وَاجْعَلْنَا مُسْلِمَيْنِ لَكَ وَمِن ذُرِّيَّتِنَا أُمَّةً مُّسْلِمَةً لَّكَ وَأَرِنَا مَنَاسِكَنَا وَتُبْ عَلَيْنَآ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ التَّوَّابُ الرَّحِيمُ
البقرة :128

Rabbana wa-j'alna Muslimayni laka wa min Dhurriyatina 'Ummatan Muslimatan laka wa 'Arina Manasikana wa tub 'alayna 'innaka 'antat-Tawwabu-Raheem

Our Lord! Make of us Muslims, bowing to Thy (Will), and of our progeny a people Muslim, bowing to Thy (will); and show us our place for the celebration of (due) rites; and turn unto us (in Mercy); for Thou art the Oft-Returning, Most Merciful - 2:128

This is also the dua of Ibrahim (A).

This dua is the end result of Ibrahim’s (A) fear and recognition of Allah I after completing actions. Whilst being obedient and subservient. One should make this dua for obedience and subservience to Allah I alone. The reason is that when the recognition of Allah I is increased in a person his realisation is also increased.

Ibrahim (A) also made dua for his offspring. The close servants of Allah I are more concerned about the spiritual welfare of their offspring especially their welfare in the Aakhirah. Another reason for praying for the off-spring is that they may, by their good deeds set a good example to future generations and the nation of Islam will benefit as a whole.

What punishment you are to give me in the Akhirah, give it to me in this world”.

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said in astonishment “Subhanallah you do not have the capability to withstand that punishment. Why don’t you make this dua? (i.e. the above dua)”. He made this dua and was cured.

“O our Lord! Grant us good in the world and good in the Hereafter and save us from the torment of the fire.”

Rabbana wala tuhammilna ma la taqata lana bihi wa'fu anna waghfir lana wairhamna anta mawlana fansurna 'alal-qawmil kafireen

A narration by AbuHurairahtin Bukhariand Muslim proves that the above dua when made by Nabi (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) was accepted.

Ibn Abbas (R.A.) narrates: We, as a group were sitting in the company of Nabi r. Jibra’il (A) was also present. Suddenly, the sound of a door opening was heard from above. Jibra’il (A) lifted his gaze to see. He then said “The door that has now opened does not open normally”.

The narrator says: Meanwhile an Angel descended and came to Nabi (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and said “Glad tidings to you for two such celestial lights “Our Lord! Lay not on us that burden which we have not the strength to bear. And pardon us; absolve us; and have mercy on us; You alone are our Friend and Helper; help us to triumph over The unbelieving folk.”

which were not given to any Rasul before you. The first is Suratul Fatihah and the second is the concluding ayah of Suratul Baqarah. If you read even one letter from it, you will attain that celestial light”.

Note: It means that by reading “IHDINAS SIRATAL-MUSTAQ•M” Allah I will most certainly show you the right path and secondly by reciting the last ayah of Suratul Baqarah, Allah I will most surely accept your dua and grant you that which you have asked for.

Abu Sa`id Ansari (R.A.) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said “The person who recites the last two ayaat of Suratul Baqarah, it will suffice him for the entire night.

Our Lord! Thou art He that will gather mankind Together against a day about which there is no doubt; for Allah never fails in His promise. - 3:9

The ayah (dua) before this ayah was concerning steadfastness. Subsequently this dua was not revealed for any worldly motives. It was solely made for the Akhirah and to seek refuge from Jahannum, as our belief is “O Allah You are going to gather us on such a day regarding which there is no doubt

Dua #10.

آل عمران :147

Rabbana-ghfir lana dhunuubana wa israfana fi amrina wa thabbit aqdamana wansurna 'alal qawmil kafireen

Our Lord! Forgive us our sins and anything We may have done that transgressed our duty: Establish our feet firmly, and help us against those that resist Faith - 3:147

No person can be assured that the good actions he is doing presently will be done continually. Therefore we should express regret on the deficiency of our present actions and make it a habit to make dua for steadfastness in regard to our future actions. In the above dua, firstly, forgiveness is being sought for previously committed sins. This is an indication to the fact that whatever difficulties / problems befalls a person, be it in the form of defeat from the enemies or any other problem, is in reality the consequence of a person’s sins. The remedy for which is seeking repentance and forgiveness.

This ayah teaches us that whenever any calamity befalls a person, then together with utilising physical means, one should also make dua and ask for repentance as most of the calamities that befall a person are due to one’s sins.

The meaning of these dua (from 13-17) includes all the objectives/needs that a person wishes for: The final objective of any person is twofold:

Gaining entry into Jannat and Saving onself from the fire of Jahannum. And for these two objectives, there are two conditions. Obedience and Being free from sin. Therefore, it adds up to four. All the above are rendered in the above ayaat.

The word “Amanna” does not refer to the Ahlul-Kitab’s past Iman but it refers to their bringing Iman of the present and being included amongst the group of believers. The word Rabbana clarifies that they are bringing the true Iman and not the superficial Iman like the hypocrites.

This dua was made by Esa (A) at the request of his helpers. They requested him to make dua that Allah I send down food from the skies so that they might eat and their hearts can be at ease and be satisfied that Esa (A) had spoken regarding his Rabb (Allah I). When Esa (A) saw that their objective was valid he made this dua

Our Lord! Avert from us the Wrath of Hell, for its Wrath is indeed an affliction grievous,- Evil indeed is it as an abode, and as a place to rest in. - 25: 65-66

This dua is a supplication which should be continuously made by the believers. Because one of their qualities, is that despite being obedient to Allah I, they still remain in fear regarding the punishment of Allah I, and regarding the Akhirah. Because of this fear they become practical, and continue making dua.

Ali (R.A.) narrates that Nabi (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) has said: Allah I sent wahi to one Nabi of the Bani Israil (i.e. Dawud u) “Tell the obedient servants from your ummah not to only rely on their good actions, as on the day of reckoning, whichever servant I wish to punish I will punish in conformance to my (justice) and tell the disobedient servants not to throw themselves into destruction by their own hands (i.e. they should not give up hope of forgiveness) as I will forgive major sins also if I wish, and I will not care (i.e. in giving anybody punishment or forgiving anybody - Abu Naim.)

Our Lord! Grant unto us wives and offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and give us (the grace) to lead the righteous - 25:74

Regarding the “coolness of the eyes” Hasan Basri states: The original coolness of the eyes is to see a persons family involved in the obedience of Allah I. The health and welfare and happiness of the family is also included in it.

Allah’s I chosen servants are not only concerned with their own reformation and are satisfied by their good deeds alone. They are also concerned with the reformation and actions of their wives and children. They continue to make an effort in this regard, and part of their effort is to make dua also

Qurtubi states: There can be nothing more soothing / cooling to the eyes than seeing a person’s wife and children being obedient to

Ikramah says: The Mufassirin have not taken the meaning of beauty and grace. But they say it means “to be obedient to Allah I.

غافر :8-9

Rabbana wa adhkhilhum Jannati 'adninil-lati wa'attahum wa man salaha min aba'ihim wa azwajihim wa dhuriyyatihim innaka antal 'Azizul-Hakim, waqihimus sayyi'at wa man taqis-sayyi'ati yawma'idhin faqad rahimatahu wa dhalika huwal fawzul-'Adheem

And grant, our Lord! that they enter the Gardens of Eternity, which Thou hast promised to them, and to the righteous among their fathers, their wives, and their posterity! For Thou art (He), the Exalted in Might, Full of Wisdom. And preserve them from (all) ills; and any whom Thou dost preserve from ills that Day,- on them wilt Thou have bestowed Mercy indeed: and that will be truly (for them) the highest Achievement. - 40:8-9

This is also the dua of the angels for the believers.

Saeed bin Jubair (R.A.) narrates: When a person will enter Jannah, he will enquire regarding the abode of his father / brother and son. It will be said to him: “They did not reach your status as far as good deeds are concerned.” The person will reply, “The good deeds I used to do were for myself as well as for them”. Hence they will be joined with him. Thereafter Saeed (R.A.) recited the above ayah.
