Dua from Sura Ibrahim

Dua #1.

رَبَّنَا إِنَّكَ تَعْلَمُ مَا نُخْفِي وَمَا نُعْلِنُ وَمَا يَخْفَى عَلَى اللّهِ مِن شَيْءٍ فَي الأَرْضِ وَلاَ فِي السَّمَاء
إبرهيم :38

Rabbana innaka ta'lamu ma nukhfi wa ma nu'lin wa ma yakhfa 'alal-lahi min shay'in fil-ardi wa la fis-Sama'

O our Lord! Truly Thou dost know what we conceal and what we reveal: for nothing whatever is hidden from Allah, whether on earth or in heaven - 14:38

This was the dua of Ibrahim

Ibn Abbas (R.A.) says it refers to the sadness of leaving Ismail (A) and his mother in a barren land.

Dua #2.

رَبَّنَا وَتَقَبَّلْ دُعَاء
إبرهيم :40

Rabbana wa taqabbal Du'a

O our Lord! And accept my Prayer. - 14:40

In Tirmidhi there is a narration wherein Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) says “dua is Ibadah”

Anas (R.A.) narrates that Nabi (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) has said: dua is the essence (marrow) of Ibadah.

Dua #3.

رَبَّنَا اغْفِرْ لِي وَلِوَالِدَيَّ وَلِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ يَوْمَ يَقُومُ الْحِسَابُ
إبرهيم :41

Rabbana ghfir li wa li wallidayya wa lil Mu'mineena yawma yaqumul hisaab

O our Lord! Cover (us) with Thy Forgiveness - me, my parents, and (all) Believers, on the Day that the Reckoning will be established! - 14:41

This is also the dua of Ibrahim (A).

From these ayaat that appear before this dua we learn the etiquettes of dua, it must be made with utmost humility and humbleness - also, the praises and glorification of Allah I should be made with dua. By this, there is a greater possibility that the dua will be accepted.

Dua #4.

رَبِّ اجعَلنى مُقيمَ الصَّلوٰةِ وَمِن ذُرِّيَّتى ۚ رَبَّنا وَتَقَبَّل دُعاءِ

Rabbi ijAAalnee muqeemas salati wamin zurriyyatee rabbana wtaqabbal duAAa

O my Lord ! make me one who establishes regular prayer and (also) from my offspring, our Lord ! and accept my invocation

Surah Ibrahim ,verse40

Dua #5.

رَبِّ اجعَل هٰذَا البَلَدَ ءامِنًا وَاجنُبنى وَبَنِىَّ أَن نَعبُدَ الأَصنامَ

rabbi ijAAal hatha albalada aminan waojnubnee wabaniyya an naAAbuda alasnaam

My Lord! make this city secure, and save me and my sons from worshipping idols

Surah Ibrahim ,verse 35
