Dua From Sura AL Imran

Dua #1.

رَبَّنَا لاَ تُزِغْ قُلُوبَنَا بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَيْتَنَا وَهَبْ لَنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ رَحْمَةً إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْوَهَّابُ
8: آل عمران

Rabbana la tuzigh quloobana ba'da idh hadaytana wa hab lana milladunka rahmah innaka antal Wahhab

Our Lord! (they say), Let not our hearts deviate now after Thou hast guided us, but grant us mercy from Thine own Presence; for Thou art the Grantor of bounties without measure - 3:8

Aisha y narrates, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) used to recite this dua when awakening in the morning

Dua #2.

رَبَّنَا إِنَّكَ جَامِعُ النَّاسِ لِيَوْمٍ لاَّ رَيْبَ فِيهِ إِنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يُخْلِفُ الْمِيعَادَ
آل عمران :9

Rabbana innaka jami'unnasi li-Yawmil la rayba fi innAllaha la yukhliful mi'aad

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 #3.

رَبَّنَا إِنَّنَا آمَنَّا فَاغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ
آل عمران :16

Rabbana innana amanna faghfir lana dhunuubana wa qinna 'adhaban-Naar

Our Lord! We have indeed believed: forgive us, then, our sins, and save us from the agony of the Fire - 3:16

Making a dua of this nature is the quality of (those who fear Allah I) by being cautious regarding the law of shariah.

Dua #4.

رَبَّنَا آمَنَّا بِمَا أَنزَلَتْ وَاتَّبَعْنَا الرَّسُولَ فَاكْتُبْنَا مَعَ الشَّاهِدِينَِ
آل عمران :53

Rabbana amanna bima anzalta wattaba 'nar-Rusula fak-tubna ma'ash-Shahideen

Our Lord! We believe in what Thou hast revealed, and we follow the Messenger. Then write us down among those who bear witness - 3:53

This dua was made by the helpers of Esa (A). When Esa (A) asked his nation that who amongst them will be his helpers. They agreed and read this dua as emphasis of their claim.

Dua #5.

ربَّنَا اغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا وَإِسْرَافَنَا فِي أَمْرِنَا وَثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَنَا وانصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَِ
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.
