Duah

Duah in Islam is a wonderful gift granted to Muslims to appeal directly to our Creator. Duah provides the framework within which dependent Man appeal to his Omnipotent Lord. The more man raises  his hands in supplication , the more he realizes his utter dependency and Reality of his Creator. Milestones like birthdays and anniversaries are also occasions to reflect upon the endless Mercies of our Creator, along with the balance sheet of our good and not-so-good deeds. Duah thus also serves as a powerful bridgehead between our natural and supernatural worlds.

Rabbanaa laa tuzigh quloobanaa
ba'da idh hadai-tanaa
wa hab la-naa mil la¬dunka rahmah
in¬naka antal wah-haab

rabbanaa innaka jaami-'un naasi
li¬yaw-mil laa raiba feeh
in-nallaha laa yukh-liful mee-'aad.

Our Lord! Cause not our hearts to deviate
After Thou hast guided us aright
But grant us mercy from Thy Presence;
For Thou art the Grantor of bounties with-out measure (3:8)

Our Lord! Thou art He that will gather mankind
Together against a Day about which there is no doubt
For God never fails in His promise. (3:9)


 

Rabbanaa laa tu-aa¬khidh-naa inn nasee¬naa aw akh-ta'naa
rabbanaa wa laa tah¬mil 'alainaa isran
kamaa hamaltahoo ' alal ladheena ming qablinaa
rabbanaa wa laa tu-hammilnaa maa laa taa-qata la¬naa bih
wa'fu an¬naa waghfir lanaa
warham-naa
anta mawlaa-naa
fansur¬ naa 'alal qawmil kaa¬ fireen.

Our Lord: condemn us not if we forget or fall into error;
Our Lord! Lay not on us such a burden
As Thou didst lay on those who have been before us!
Our Lord! Lay not on us a burden greater than what we have strength to bear.
Blot out our sins and grant us forgiveness,
And have mercy on us.
Thou art our Protector;
So help us against the unbelieving people.
(2:286)
