Note: some of these duas are not necessarily from the Sunnah but contain general wording

اللـهم اهـدِنا فيمَن هـديت .. وعافـِنا فيمـَن عافـيت .. وتولنا فيمن توليت .. وبارك لنا فيما أعطيت .. وقِـنا شـر ما قضيت .. انك تقضي ولا يـُقضى عليك.. اٍنه لا يذل مَن واليت .. ولا يعـِـزُ من عاديت .. تباركت ربنا وتعـاليت .. لك الحمد على ما قـضيت .. ولك الشكر على ما أعـطيت .. نستغـفـُرك اللـهم من جميع الذنوب والخطـايا ونتوب اٍليك

O Allah guide us along with those whom You have guided, pardon us along with those whom You have pardoned, be an ally to us along with those whom You are an ally to and bless for us that which You have bestowed. Protect us from the evil You have decreed for verily You decree and none can decree over You. For surety, he whom you show allegiance to is never abased and he whom You take as an enemy is never honoured and mighty. O our Lord, Blessed and Exalted are You…To you belongs all the thanks for what you have given. We seek forgiveness from You. O Allah forgive us all our sins and mistakes and We make Tawbah [turn back] to You.

اللهم لك الحمد أنت قـيِّـومُ السموات والأرض ومن فيهِـن ، ولك الحمد لك ملكُ السموات والأرض ومن فيهن ، ولك الحمد .. أنت نورُ السموات والأرض ومن فيهن ، ولك الحمد أنت الحق ، ووعـدك الحق ، ولقاؤك حـق ، وقولك حـق ، والجنة حـق، والنار حـق ، والنبيون حـق ، ومحمد – صلى الله عليه وسلم – حـق ، والساعة حـق .. اللهم لك اسلـَمنا .. وبك آمنا.. وعـليك توكلنا.. واٍليك أنبـنا .. وبك خاصمنا .. واٍليك حاكمنا .. فاغـفـر لنا ما قدمنا وما أخرنا ، وما أسررنا وما أعـلنا .. وما أنت أعـلمُ به منا أنت المقـدِمُ وأنت المؤخرُلا اله الا أنت سبحانك .. اٍنا كنامن الظالمين ولا حـول ولا قـوة الا بالله

“O Allah, to You belongs all praise, You are the Light of the heavens and the Earth and all that is within them. To You belongs all praise, You are the Sustainer of the heavens and the Earth and all that is within them. To You belongs all praise. You are Lord of the heavens and the Earth and all that is within them. To You belongs all praise and the kingdom of the heavens and the Earth and all that is within them. To You belongs all praise, You are the King of the heavens and the Earth and to You belongs all praise. You are The Truth, Your promise is true, your Word is true, and the Day in which we will encounter You is true, the Garden of Paradise is true and the Fire is true, and the Prophets are true, Muhammad is true and the Final Hour is true. O Allah, unto You we have submitted, and upon You we have relied, and in You we have believed, and to You we have turned in repentance, and over You we have disputed, and to You we have turned for judgment. So forgive us for what has come to pass of our sins and what will come to pass, and what we have hidden and what we have made public. You are Al-Muqaddim and Al-Muakhkhir. None has the right to be worshipped except You, Glorified be You, we have been amongst the wrong doers, there is no change or power except with Allah.”

اللهـم يا مقـلّب القـلوب .. ثبـّت قلـوبَـنـا عـلى دينـك اللهم أقسم لنا من خشيتك ما تحول به بيننا وبين معـصيتك .. ومن طاعـتك ما تبلّـغـُـنا به جنتَـك .. ومن اليقـين ما تُهـّون به عـلينا مصائبَ الدنيا .. ومتـّعـنا اللهم باسماعِـنا وأبصارِنا وقـواتـِنا ما أبقـيتنا .. واجعـلهُ الوارثَ منـّا .. واجعـل ثأرنا على من ظلمنا.. وانصُرنا على من عادانا .. ولا تجعـل مصيبـتَـنا في ديـننا .. ولا تجعـل الدنيا أكبرَ هـمِنا .. ولا مبلغَ علمِنا .. ولا اٍلى النار مصيرنا .. واجعـل الجنة هي دارنا .. ولا تُسلط عـلينا بذنوبـِنا من لايخافـُـك فينا ولا يرحمـنا

O Allah, O Turner of the hearts. Make our hearts firm upon your Deen [religion]. O Allah, we ask You to allot us a share of fearing You with which to keep us from disobedience to You, and a share of obedience to You with which to help us reach into Your paradise; and to grant us the certitude of faith with which to make it easier for us to bear the calamities of life. O Allah, bless us with good hearing, good eyesight, good health as long as You allow us to live, and make the enjoyment (of these physical functions) an eternal blessing for us. Let our revenge fall upon those who do us injustice, and support us in those who stand in hostility against us. We ask You to make this world neither our prime preoccupation nor the extent of our knowledge, afflict us not in our faith, make not hellfire our fate and make Jannah our eternal abode. And do not subject us to oppression by those who fear You not and have no mercy for us.

الـلهم انا نسألـُـك فعـلَ الخيرات .. وتركَ المنكرات .. وحبَ المساكين.. وأن تغـفـر لنا وترحمنا وتتوب علينا .. واٍذا أردت بقـومٍ فـتنةً فـتوَفـنا غـير مفـتونين .. ونسألك حبَـك.. وحبَ مَن يُحـبـُـك.. وحب عـملٍ يقـربنا اٍلى حـبـِك .. يا رب العــالمـين

O Allah! we ask of you the doing of the good deeds, avoiding the evil deeds, loving the poor, and that You forgive me, and have mercy upon me. And when You have willed Fitnah [trials] upon the people, then let me die without being affected by the Fitnah. And we ask You for Your love, the love of whomever You love, and the of the deeds that bring one nearer to Your love O Lord of everything.

اللهم اغـفـر لجميع موتى المسلمين .. الذين شهـِـدوا لك بالوحدانية ..ولنبيك بالرسالة .. وماتوا على ذلك .. اللهم اغـفر لهُم وارحمهُم نسألك اٍيمانـًا كاملاً .. ويقـينـًا صادقـًا .. وقـلبًا خاشعًا ..ولسانًا ذاكرًا ..وتوبة نصوحة .. وتوبة قبل الموت .. وراحة عند الموت .. والعـفـو عـند الحساب .. ونسألك الجنةَ ونعـيمَها .. ونعـوذ بك من النار .. يارب العـالمين.

O Allah, forgive all the Muslims who have died, those who have testified to your Oneness and to the Messengership – and let us [also] die upon this. O Allah forgive them and have mercy upon them. We ask you for complete Iman [faith] and Yaqeen [certaintity] which is true/real, a submissive heart, a tongue [constantly] engaged in Dhikr [Your remembrance], a sincere repentance, to make Tawbah [turn to You] before death, comfort during death, pardon during our accounting [on the Day of Judgement]. We ask You for Paradise and it’s blessings and we seek protection in You from the Fire O Lord of the worlds.

اللـهم اٍنـا عـبيدُك .. بنوعبيدك ..بنو اٍمائك .. نواصِـينا بيدك .. ماضٍ فـينا حُكمك .. عـدلٌ فينا قضاؤك .. نسألك بكلِ اسم هـو لك .. سمّيتَ به نفـسَـك .. أو أنزلتـَهُ في كتابك .. أوعـلّمته أحـداً من خلقـِك .. أو استأثرت به في عـِلم الغـيبِ عندك .. أن تجعـل القرآن ربيعَ قلوبنا .. ونورَ صدورنا ..وجَلاء حُـزننا .. وذهاب هـمِنا وغـمِنا

“O Allah, we are Your servants, sons of Your servants, son of Your maidservants, our forelock is in Your hand, Your command over us is forever executed and Your decree over us is just. We ask You by every name belonging to You which You named Yourself with, or revealed in Your Book, or You taught to any of Your creation, or You have preserved in the knowledge of the unseen with You, that You make the Qur’ān the spring of our heart [i.e. make our heart flourish with the Qur’ān] and the light of our chests, and a departure for our sorrow and a release for our anxieties.”

اللهم اٍنا نسألك من خير ما سألك منه محمد – صلى الله عليه وسلم – ونعـوذ بك من شر ما استعـاذ منه نبيك محمد – صلى الله عليه وسلم – وأنت المستعان وعـليك البلاغ ولا حول ولا قـوة اٍلا بالله

O Allah, we beg to You the good which Your Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) begged of You; and I seek refuge in You from the evil where from Your Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) sought refuge. You are the One from Whom help is sought and Your is the responsibility to communicate (the truth). There is no power or strength except with Allah the Exalted, the Great.

اللهم انا نسألك من الخير كله عاجله وآجله .. ما عـلِمنا منه وما لم نعـلم .. ونعـوذ بك من الشر كلـِّه عاجـله وآجله ماعـلمنا منه وما لم نعـلم .. ونسألك الجنة .. وما يقـرب اٍليها من قـولٍ وعـملٍ ونعـوذ بك من النار .. وما يقـرب اٍليها من قـولٍ وعـمل

O Allah! We ask you of all good in this world and in the Hereafter, that of which we know and that we do not know. We seek refuge in you from all evil in this world and in the Hereafter, that of which we know and that we do not know. O Allah! We ask you for Paradise and what brings us nearer to it of deeds and sayings. We seek refuge in You from Hell-Fire and what brings us near to it of deeds and sayings.

اللهم اٍجعـل في قـلوبـِنا نورا.. وفي أبصارِنا نورا .. وفي أسماعِـنا نورا .. وعـن أيماننا نورا .. وعـن يسارنا نورا .. وفـوقـنا نورا ومن تحـتـنا نورا .. وأمامنا نورا .. وخلفـنا نورا .. واجعـل لنا نورا

“O Allah, place within our hearts light, and upon our eyes light, and within our ears light, and place light to our right and light to our left and light above us and light below us and light in front of us and light behind us and bestow upon me light.”

يا حي يا قيـوم برحمتك أستغـيث .. أصـِلح لي شأني كـله ولا تكـلني الى نفسي طرفة عـين

“O Ever Living, O Self-Subsisting and Supporter of all, by Your mercy I seek assistance, rectify for me all of my affairs and do not leave me to myself, even for [a period of] a glance of an eye.”

اللهم أعـز الاسلام والمسلمين ، اللهم أعـز الاسلام والمسلمين ، اللهم أعـز الاسلام والمسلمين وأذل الشرك والمشركين .. ودمـّر أعـداء الدين .. .. يـارب العالمين اللهم انصر اخواننا المستضعـفين في كل مكان.. يارب العالمين اللهم فـُـك قـيـد أسرانا وأسرى المسلمين اللهم فـُـك قـيـد أسرانا وأسرى المسلمين اللهم فـُـك قـيـد أسرانا وأسرى المسلمين برحـمـتك يا أرحـم الراحـمـين ..

O Allah give honour to Islam and the Muslims, O Allah give honour to Islam and the Muslims, O Allah give honour to Islam and the Muslims, and humiliate Shirk [polytheism] and the Mushrikeen [polytheists]. And destroy the enemies of the Deen [religion] O Lord of the worlds. O Allah give victory to our oppressed brothers in every location of the world, O Lord of the worlds.O Allah, break free the shackles of our prisoners and the prisoners of the Muslims, O Allah, break free the shackles of our prisoners and the prisoners of the Muslims, O Allah, break free the shackles of our prisoners and the prisoners of the Muslims, by Your mercy O One who is the most Merciful.

اللهم انا نسألك خشيتك .. في الغـيب والشهادة ..ونسألك كلمة الحـق في الغـضب والرضى ..ونسألك القـصد في الفقر والغـنى ..ونسألك نعـيمًا لا ينفـد ونسألك قرة عين لا تنقطع .. ونسألك الرضى بعـد القـضاء .. ونسألك برد العـيش بعـد الموت .. ونسألك لذة النظر الى وجهك الكريم والشوق الى لقائك .. في غـير ضراء مضرة .. ولا فـتنة مضلة .. اللهم زينا بزينة الايمان .. واجعـلنا هداة مهتدين
وصلى الله على سيـدنا محـمد وعـلى آلـه وصـحـبه وسـلم

O Allah, make us fearful of You whether in secret or in public and we ask You to make us true in speech, in times of pleasure and anger. We ask you to make us moderate in times of wealth and poverty and we ask You for everlasting bliss and joy which will never cease. We ask You to make us pleased with what You have decreed and for an easy life after death. We ask You for the sweetness of looking upon Your Face and a longing to encounter You in a manner which does not entail a calamity which will bring about harm nor a trial which will cause deviation. O Allah, beautify us with the adornment of faith and make us of those who guide and are rightly guided.”

[Finally] May Allah’s prayers and peace be upon our Leader Muhammad and upon His companions [ameen]
