Beautiful Duas From the Qur’an and Sunnah

by in Soul on 8th July, 2022

Dua is the weapon of the believer and we have been blessed with the knowledge of many beautiul duaas through the Qur’an and also ones that the Prophet ﷺ taught us.

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “No Muslim sets his face towards Allah Almighty in some matter but that he will be given a response, whether it comes quickly or is stored for later.” (Musnad Ahmad)

We asked the Amaliah community what their favourite duas are from the Qur’an and Sunnah and compiled them so that everyone can benefit from them! If you’re stuck on what dua to make, use the list below for inspiration. May Allah accept our duaas.
