Q Dua

“And when My servants ask you concerning Me, then surely I am very near; I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he calls on Me, so they should answer My call and believe in Me, So that they may walk in the right way.” Qur’an 2:186

Asmaul Husna

“Say (O Muhammad): Call upon Allah or call upon the
Merciful, whichever you call upon, He has the best names…..” 17:110

Each name is a dua in itself……



It is said that whoever engages in the ta’qeeb’ after salaa is as if he is in salaa. Ta’qeeb (pl. ta’qibaat) literally means delay but in this context it is defined as pre-occupying oneself with dua, zhikr (remembrance of Allah) and recitation of Qur’an after salaa so as to contemplate on the awesomeness of the Creator and endeavour to reach one’s full potential. The recommended sequence is the 3 takbeers, followed by tahleel (Laa Ilaaha Illallah), the tasbee of Sayyida Fatima (pbuh), Istighfaar, the recommended duas for each salaa, ones wishes and desires in one’s own words, and finally the sajda of shukr.



Each month has its own merits and specific duas and a’maals


Physical Ailments

“And We send down of the Qur’an that which is a healing and a mercy to those who believe…” Al-Isra’ 17:82


Mental Ailments

“..and when i am ill ,He (Allah) is the one who cures me..” 26:80
The specific duas taught by the Ma’sumeen enables one to turn anxiety, fear or depression into a dua reaching out to the One who is the Knower of all secrets.


Emotional Needs

“I only complain of my suffering and my grief to Allah.” 12:86 When you feel frustrated and hopeless, and it seems that all doors are closing on your heart, reach out to Al – Fattaah (the Opener) of all doors to open them just as Prophet Yaqub (pbuh) did.


Spiritual Elevation

“…Indeed in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find contentment..” 13:28



“And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient, Who, when afflicted, say, ‘Indeed we belong to Allah, and certainly to Him we will return’.” 2:155-156
These duas enable one to understand the words “Indeed we belong to Allah and certainly to Him we will return”
One of the most awesome of these duas is “O Allah I do not ask you to reverse Your decision but I ask You to show me Your Grace (Blessings) in it”



“O humankind, there has to come to you instruction from your Rabb and a healing for what is in the chest and a guidance and mercy for those who believe ” 10:57
