Du’a to Make When Struggling to Raise Children

Make the following du’a when you are struggling with raising children:

وعن الفضيل قال: اللهم إني أجتهدتُ أن أؤذّب عليّاً، فلم أقدر على تأديبه فأدبه أنت لي.

This du’a was made by Al-Fudayl ibn ‘Iyaad when he was struggling with raising his son. It is said that he became an amazing son after this du’a.

Oh Allah, I struggled to rectify my son Ali, and I’m not able to train him or raise him as I want. Oh Allah, you raise him and make him righteous for me.

Rectifying Our Intentions

Du’a of ‘Umar ibn al Khattab (ra)

اللهُمَّ اجْعَلْ عَمَلِي كُلَّهُ صَالِحًا وَاجْعَلْهُ لِوَجْهِكَ خَالِصًا وَلَا تَجْعَلْ لِأَحَدٍ فِيْهِ شَيْئًا

Al’lahum’ma-ja’al ‘amalee kullahu saalihan wa-ja’alhu liwajhika khaalisan wa laa taj’al liahadin feehee shay’a

Oh Allah, make all of my actions righteous, make them purely for your sake & pleasure, and don’t allow anyone else to have a share of them.

If this is ‘Umar (ra) making this du’a then how great is our need to ask for sincerity!

Response to a Du’a

Musa (as) made du’a against Firaun and Allah said in Surah Yunus (10:89) that it was accepted. Yet, Firaun remained for another 40 years!

Just because you haven’t seen your du’a answered doesn’t mean it hasn’t been accepted. The timing of the response is with your Lord who Knows better than you when something is good for you.

So be patient and keep knocking and eventually al Fattah will grant you a mind-blowing opening. Your job is just to ask!

Du’a for Rectifying Our Intentions

Du’a of ‘Umar ibn al Khattab (ra):

اللهُمَّ اجْعَلْ عَمَلِي كُلَّهُ صَالِحًا وَاجْعَلْهُ لِوَجْهِكَ خَالِصًا وَلَا تَجْعَلْ لِأَحَدٍ فِيْهِ شَيْئًا

Al’lahum’ma-ja’al ‘amalee kullahu saalihan wa-ja’alhu liwajhika khaalisan wa laa taj’al liahadin feehee shay’a

Oh Allah, make all of my actions righteous, make them purely for your sake & pleasure, and don’t allow anyone else to have a share of them.

Du’a to Make for Yourself

اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْ فِي قَلْبِي نُورًا وَفِي لِسَانِي نُورًا وَاجْعَلْ فِي سَمْعِي نُورًا وَاجْعَلْ فِي بَصَرِي نُورًا وَاجْعَلْ مِنْ خَلْفِي نُورًا وَمِنْ أَمَامِي نُورًا وَاجْعَلْ مِنْ فَوْقِي نُورًا وَمِنْ تَحْتِي نُورًا‏.‏ اللَّهُمَّ أَعْطِنِي نُورًا ‏”‏

“O Allah put light in my heart and light in my tongue and put light in my hearing and put light in my sight and put light behind me and light in front of me and put light above me and light beneath me.

O Allah give me light.”

Du’a for Sincerity

Ask yourself why you are doing an action before you do it.

“اللهم اجعل عملي كله صالحا واجعله لوجهك خالصا ولا تجعل لأحد فيه شيئ”
