Dua For Knowledge

Ramadan is the month in which we increase our recitation of the Qur’an. Ask Allah to increase your understanding of it by reciting the following dua for knowledge. It was recited by Prophet Musa (alayhi salam) and is found in Surah Taha.

رَّبِّ زِدْنِي عِلْمًا

Rabbi zidni ‘ilma.

My Lord, increase me in knowledge.

So high [above all] is Allah, the Sovereign, the Truth. And, [O Muhammad], do not hasten with [recitation of] the Qur’an before its revelation is completed to you, and say, “My Lord, increase me in knowledge.”

Qur’an 20:114

Ramadan Duas For Forgiveness

It’s highly recommended to increase in istighfar during the blessed month of Ramadan.

Here’s a Qur’anic dua for forgiveness – made by Prophet Musa (alayhi salam) and derived from Surah Al-Qasas – you can make:

رَبِّ إِنِّى ظَلَمْتُ نَفْسِى فَٱغْفِرْ لِى

Rabbi inni zalamtu nafsi faghfir li.

My Lord, indeed I have wronged myself, so forgive me.

He said, “My Lord, indeed I have wronged myself, so forgive me,” and He forgave him. Indeed, He is the Forgiving, the Merciful.

Qur’an 28:16

The following dua for forgiveness was taught to Abu Bakr As-Siddiq by the Prophet (ﷺ):

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي ظَلَمْتُ نَفْسِي ظُلْمًا كَثِيرًا، وَلاَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ، فَاغْفِرْ لِي مِنْ عِنْدِكَ مَغْفِرَةً، إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ

Allahumma inni zalamtu nafsi zulman kathiran, wa la yaghfirudh-dhunuba illa anta, faghfirli maghfiratan, innaka antal Ghafur-Rahim.

O Allah! I have wronged my soul very much (oppressed myself), and none forgives the sins but You; so please bestow Your Forgiveness upon me. No doubt, You are the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

Narrated `Abdullah bin `Amr:
Abu Bakr As-Siddiq said to the Prophet (ﷺ) “O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)! Teach me an invocation with which I may invoke Allah in my prayers.” The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Say: O Allah! I have wronged my soul very much (oppressed myself), and none forgives the sins but You; so please bestow Your Forgiveness upon me. No doubt, You are the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”

Sahih al-Bukhari

Forgiveness Dua For Laylatul Qadr Nights

You are Forgiving and love forgiveness

The following dua was taught to ‘Aishah by the Prophet (ﷺ). It’s to be recited during Laylatul Qadr.

اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي

Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun tuhibbul-‘afwa, fa’fu ‘anni.

O Allah, You are Forgiving and love forgiveness, so forgive me.

It was narrated from ‘Aishah that she said: “O Messenger of Allah, what do you think I should say in my supplication, if I come upon Laylatul-Qadr?” He said: “Say: ‘Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun tuhibbul-‘afwa, fa’fu ‘anni (O Allah, You are Forgiving and love forgiveness, so forgive me).'”
