Dua From Sura Al Furqan

Dua #1.

رَبَّنَا اصْرِفْ عَنَّا عَذَابَ جَهَنَّمَ إِنَّ عَذَابَهَا كَانَ غَرَامًا إِنَّهَا سَاءتْ مُسْتَقَرًّا وَمُقَامًا
الفرقان :65-66

Rabbanas-rif 'anna 'adhaba jahannama inna 'adhabaha kana gharama innaha sa'at musta-qarranw wa muqama

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.)

Dua #2.

رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا
الفرقان :74

Rabbana Hablana min azwaajina wadhurriy-yatina, qurrata 'ayioni wa-jalna lil-muttaqeena Imaama

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.
