In the Name of Allah, the All Merciful, the Compassionate
Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds.
And peace and blessings be upon Sayyidina Muhammad and upon his family and his companions.
(transliteration in Notes section below)
I intend to study and teach, to take and give a reminder, to take and give benefit, to take and give advantage, to encourage holding fast to the Book of God and the way of His messenger, to call to guidance and to direct towards good, hoping for the countenance of God and His pleasure, His proximity and His reward. Transcendent is He.
The following slide contains my preferred litany of duas for studying. It is simply my own arrangement; it is not a “recommended” collection and it is not in a “recommended” order. The last slide contains a much longer list of duas that you can pick and choose from to formulate your own litany.
اللَّهُمَّإنِّيأعُوذُبِكَمِنَالْهَمِّوَالْحَزَنِ ، وَالْعَجْزِوَالْكَسَلِ ، وَالْبُخْلِوَالْجُبْنِ ، وَضَلَعِالدِّيْنِوَغَلَبَةِالرِّجَالِAllahummainnia'udhubikaminalhammiwalhazan, wal 'ajziwalkasal, walbukhliwaljubn, wadhala'id-dayniwaghalabatirrijaalO Allah! I seek refuge in You from grief and sadness, from weakness and from laziness, from miserliness and from cowardice, from being overcome by debt and from being overpowered by men (other people)[Sahih al-Bukhari 7:158]حَسْبِيَاللهُوَنِعْمَالْوَكِيلُHasbiyAllahuwani'malwakeelAllah is my availer and protector and the best of aids.رَبِّاِنِّىْمَغْلُوْبٌفَانْتَصِرْRabbi innimaghlubun fan-tass-ssirO Allah! I am overpowered, so help me.[surah al-Qamar, 54:10]This was the du'a of sayyidnaNuh (alayhissalam) after 950 years of preaching to a stubborn people.
سُبْحَانَكَلاَعِلْمَلَنَاإِلاَّمَاعَلَّمْتَنَاإِنَّكَأَنتَالْعَلِيمُالْحَكِيمُSubhanaka la 'ilmalana 'illa ma 'allamtana 'innaka 'antal-'Alimul HakimGlory be to you, we have no knowledge except what you have taught us. Verily, it is You, the All-Knower, the All-Wise[surah Baqarah; 2:32]رَبِّزدْنيِعِلْماًوَرْزُقْنيِفَهْماًRabbi zidni 'ilman war zuqnifahmanO Allah!
