RAMADAN DUA LIST – Guidelines, Tips & Dua Suggestions

RAMADAN DUA LIST – Guidelines, Tips & Dua Suggestions


Bismillah
One of the reasons most of us are excited about Ramadan is because it is in this beautiful month that we are hoping to get our duas accepted. And honestly truth be told not a single one of us is not in need of a dua being answered.
What is Ramadan Dua List?
What duas should I make?
Are there any Ramadan Specific duas?
RAMADAN DUA LIST
A list consisting of personal duas + duas from Sunnah and Qur’an that you intend to make during the month of Ramadan in the form of a book or a printout. These duas can be made throughout the day at any time or you can allot specific timings to specific duas. A List will improve productivity + ensure you do not forget any dua.
DIVIDE YOUR DUAS INTO 6 PARTS1st Part – Atleast 10 duas that you intend to make during Fajr Salaah. The Duas need to be less than 10. Do not overwhelm yourself. If you can make alot of dua then go ahead, whatever floats your boat.
2nd Part – Repeat the same with different set of duas for Dhohr.
3rd Part – Repeat the same with different set of duas of Asr.
4th Part – Repeat the same with different set of duas for Maghrib.
5th Part – Repeat the same with different set of duas for Isha.
6th Part – Atleast 20 Duas that you intend to make before breaking fast and during Qiyaam or Tahajjud. These duas need to be special and the ones that you want the most. Make sure you include duas that balance deen and duniya. Do not forget to include Ummah in this particular section.
DUAS IN SUJOOD
List down atleast 4 duas that you will and should make in every single sujood. Again make sure these are the duas that you need the most. I would repeat my advise and admonish you not to increase the number.
ARE THERE ANY RAMADAN SPECIFIC DUAS?Yes! There are 2 authentic Ramadan Specific duas.
Dua 1: “After” breaking fast.Note: All the duas that circulate during Ramadan “before” breaking fast are da’if. It is best to say bismillah and break your fast. And then make the following dua. Simple and easy.

ذَهَبَ الظَّمَأُ وَابْتَلَّتِ الْعُرُوقُ وَثَبَتَ الأَجْرُ إِنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ ‏

Zahabaz Zama’u wab tal latil uruqoo wa sabbatal ajr InshaAllah
Thirst has gone, the arteries are moist, and the reward is sure, if Allah wills.
Marwan ibn Salim al-Muqaffa’ said: I saw Ibn Umar holding his beard with his hand and cutting what exceeded the handful of it. He (Ibn Umar) said that the Prophet (ﷺ) said when he broke his fast: Thirst has gone, the arteries are moist, and the reward is sure, if Allah wills.
{Sunan Abi Dawud – Hassan}
Dua 2 : During Last 10 Days of Ramadan.

اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّكَ عَفُوٌ تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي 

Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun, tuhibbul-’afwa, fa’fu ‘anni
O Allah, You are Most Forgiving, and You love forgiveness; so forgive me
‘Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: I asked: “O Messenger of Allah! If I realize Lailat-ul-Qadr (Night of Decree), what should I supplicate in it?” He (ﷺ) replied, “You should supplicate: Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun, tuhibbul-’afwa, fa’fu ‘anni (O Allah, You are Most Forgiving, and You love forgiveness; so forgive me).”
{At-Tirmidhi}

Dua for protection against black magic and evil eye.
Dua to make family ties strong.
Dua to be the Oolil Albaab/People of sound understanding.Some suggestions from the top of my head! 
TWO DUA TIPSTip 1 – Recite the Dua Prophet Muhammad ﷺ often made.

اللهم آتنا في الدنيا حسنة، وفي الآخرة حسنة، وقنا عذاب النار

Allahumma atina fid-dunya hasanatan, wa fil-akhirati hasanatan, wa qina ‘adhab-annar
O our Rubb! give us in this world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good, and save us from the punishment of the Fire
Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:The supplication most often recited by the Prophet (ﷺ) was: “Allahumma atina fid-dunya hasanatan, wa fil-akhirati hasanatan, wa qina ‘adhab-annar (O our Rubb! give us in this world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good, and save us from the punishment of the Fire).”‘
{Al-Bukhari and Muslim}In the narration of Muslim it is added that whenever Anas supplicated, he used to beseech Allah with this Du’a.
Tip 2 – Purchase Fortress of the Muslim
Purchase atleast 10 copies. Consider this an investment. Gift it to your friends/family/reverts you know of. 
Keep it handy at all times specially during Ramadan. Have free time? Open the book and start making duas from it.
An online version is available but I highly recommend that you purchase a hardcopy. Once you are online there are so many distractions. And personally I like to sit on my prayer mat and make dua in the seclusion of my room. I do not like distractions and I reckon no one else does. Gifting it to others and they benefiting from it will gain you more reward, and who doesn’t want extra reward in Ramadan? 
Get highlighters in 5 different colours and mark your duas. 
For instance all duas marked with green are the ones you intend to make in Fajr Salaah and the ones with red in dhohr and so on. That way you will be dividing your duas and making sure you make all of them without getting tired or disinterested.
DUA POINTERS THAT YOU NEED TO REMEMBER
  1. It is from the sunnah to repeat your dua 3 times.
  2. It is from the etiquette of dua to make it in a moderate voice.
    Not too loud.
    Not too low.
    O people! Don’t exert yourselves, for you do not call a deaf or an absent one, but you call the All- Listener, the All-Seer.
    – Prophet Muhammad
    {Sahih Al Bukhari}
  3. Call Allah using His Beautiful Names
    Al Wali – The Protecting Friend.
    Al Qareeb – The One who is Near.
    Al Wakeel – The Most Trustworthy.
  4. If Allah granted the dua of Shaytan do you think he will not grant your dua?
  5. Remember that the reply of dua comes in 3 forms
    a) Yes.
    b) Yes but on a later date, not immediately.
    c) Some difficult/trouble is waved off.
    “No believer makes Dua and it is wasted. Either it is granted here in this world or deposited for him in the Hereafter as long as he does not get frustrated.”
    - Aisha radiAllahu anha
  6. Make dua for your friends and Ummah, Angels will make the same dua for you. It is an absolute win win situation. Make sure you make dua for atleast 10 close friends.
  7. Begin & End your dua by sending Salaam on Prophet Muhammad.”Invoke blessings at the beginning and the end of your supplications. Allah is sure to accept both blessings and it is unlikely that He would not accept what is in between.”
    – Abu Sulaiman Ad-Darani
    Duaa is suspended between heaven and earth and none of it is taken up until you send blessings upon your Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam.”
    – Umar radiAllahu anhuStudy this in details HERE
  8. Some Salaf made dua for 20 years and were still hopefull that their dua will be accepted and responded to. Always remember this if you tend to get impatient.
  9. Dua is a form of Worship. You get rewarded for making dua. This itself should be reason enough for us to be constantly engaged in making dua.
  10. When Allah mentions dua in Qur’an he establishes a direct connection with you. Even Prophet Muhammad is moved away from inbetween. Usually Allah commands prophet Muhammad to “tell it” to the people. But when it comes to verse about Dua “qul” is removed. This conveys pure tawheed. Dua makes a “direct” connection between you and Allah, not even Prophet Muhammad, no messenger, no wali is between you and Allah.
    SubhanAllah take a moment and visual a pure direct connection that is established between you and Allah whenever you start making dua!!
    Fathkuroonee athkurkum
    So remember Me; I will remember you.
    {Surat Al Baqarah 2: Ayaah 152}
  11. Dua is more likely to be answered in sujood, before tasleem in fard Salaah, between Adhan and Iqamaa, before breaking fast, 1/3rd end of the night also known as tahajjud or qiyaam ul layl, when it rains,.. to name a few.
    Learn to combine these.
    Example – Dua in Sujood during Ramadan at Tahajjud on the possible odd nights of laylatul Qadr!
  12. To humble yourself before Allah whilst making dua, confess your sins.
  13. Know that Allah is shy and will not return a servant empty handed.
    Salman Al-farsi narrated that the Prophet said:
    “Indeed, Allah, is Hayy, Generous, when a man raises his hands to Him, He feels too shy to return them to him empty and rejected.”{Tirmidhi}
  14. Make dua with sincerity & Humility. You must ensure that your heart/Qalb submits totally, sincerely and wholeheartedly to Allah. Allah does not listen to an absent heart.
    “O you who believe! Enter into Islam wholeheartedly, without reservation…”
    {Surat Al Baqara 2 : Ayaah 208}Your Qalb/Heart cannot be compartmentalized. You cannot dedicate one piece of it to Allah and another to some other illah/god, like wealth, status, career, spouse and so on.
  15. Make dua with Yaqeen and certainity. Make sure you put your faith in the dua and be positive that Allah will answer it. Have Tawakkul-this is going to happen! Don’t say I don’t know if this is going to work. If you are not committing any major sins it will work – bi’ithinillah. Be firm and don’t be hesitant that Allah will not answer you.
  16. Allah loves it when you make dua.
  17. Allah gets angry when you do not ask him or make dua to Him.
    “Whoever does not call upon Allah, He will be angry with him.”
    - Prophet Muhammad{Sunan Ibn Majah}
  18. Dua is your weapon against everything and everyone.
  19. Only dua has the power to change Qadr/Destiny. Make dua that if there are hardships written in your qadr that Allah replaces them with blessings instead.
  20. Your dua is more likely to be accepted if you constantly and sincerely repent. Repentance cleanses you of your sins and you are in a purer state when you plead Allah.
  21. Be Patient. Do not be in a haste. Keep negative thoughts concerning your dua and Allah at bay. Erase them totally if possible.
    “(The du’aa’) of any one of you will be answered so long as he is not hasty in seeking a response and does not say, ‘I prayed but I have not had a response.’”
    - Prophet Muhammad
    {Sahih Al Bukhari & Sahih Muslim}

Our Lord, and accept my supplication.

DUAS FOR CHILDREN
SubhanAllah nearly every week we get emails from sisters asking us for duas that might get them pregnant. I pray Allah answers your dua for a poius, healthy and beautiful progeny this Ramadan.
Here are some of the duas you can make.
1. Dua of Zakkariyya aleyhi salaam
Rabbi hab lee min ladunka thurriyyatantayyibatan innaka sameeAAu adduAAa
“My Lord, grant me from Yourself a good offspring. Indeed, You are the Hearer of supplication.”

{Surat Ali Imran 3: Ayaah 38}
2. Dua of Zakkariyya aleyhi salaam
Rabbi la tatharnee fardan waanta khayru alwaritheen
“My Lord, do not leave me alone [with no heir], while you are the best of inheritors.”
{Surat Al Anbya 21 : Ayaah 89}
3. Dua of Ibrahim aleyhi salaam for his sons Ismael and Ishaq 
Rabbi hablee mina assaliheen“My Lord, grant me [a child] from among the righteous.”
{Surat As Saffat 37: Ayaah 100}
4.   Dua from Surat Al Furqan
Rabbanahab lana min azwajina wathurriyyatinaqurrata aAAyunin wajAAalna lilmuttaqeena imama
“Our Lord, grant us from among our wives and offspring comfort to our eyes and make us an example for the righteous.”
{Surat Al Furqan 25: Ayaah 74}
5.  Dua from Surat Al Ahqaf
RabbiawziAAnee an ashkura niAAmataka allatee anAAamta AAalayya waAAalawalidayya waan aAAmala salihan tardahuwaaslih lee fee thurriyyatee innee tubtuilayka wa-innee mina almuslimeen.
“My Lord, enable me to be grateful for Your favor which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents and to work righteousness of which You will approve and make righteous for me my offspring. Indeed, I have repented to You, and indeed, I am of the Muslims.”
{Surat Al Ahqaf 46: Ayaah 15}

CRYING WHILE MAKING DUA

Crying and Beseeching Allah in times of hardship comes naturally. Especially when we are feeling helpless. This problem arises when we are surrounded with blessings and yet our heart yearns for the sweetness of crying out to Allah either in repentance or in humble gratitude. Here are few tips that might help you:
1. Imagine yourself lying alone in your grave.
2. Imagine your sins that Allah in His ultimate mercy covered and has still kept hidden.
3. Imagine seeing Hellfire.
4. Imagine standing naked on the day of judgment waiting to receive your book of deeds.
5. Imagine Allah turning away from you or making you blind on the day of judgment.
6. Imagine the innumerable blessings of Allah that you DO NOT deserve yet Allah has showered you with.
7. Imagine the diseases and hardships Allah has saved you from which others are suffering with. Rape, Marital Abuse, Cancer, Abusive Parents and the list of evil things which could have happened but DID NOT is literally ENDLESS!
8. Last and the MOST IMPORTANT make a constant small effort to gain more knowledge. The greater knowledge you have about the seerah, names of Allah and Tafseer of the Qur’an inshaAllah the greater will be your humility, fear and Love of Allah. We pray Allah keeps us away and saves us from being those who have knowledge but are arrogant. Knowledge is beneficial only when it increases us in humility.
If someone is new to Islam and is wondering why should I even be crying or trying to cry?
It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet (ﷺ) said:
“No man will enter the Fire who weeps for fear of Allah, Most High, until the milk goes back into the udders. And the dust (of Jihad) in the cause of Allah, and the smoke of Hell will never be combined.”
{Sunan An Nasai}
Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (ﷺ) said Allah will give shade to seven (types of people) under His Shade (on the Day of Resurrection). (one of them will be) a person who remembers Allah and his eyes are then flooded with tears.
{Sahih Al Bukhari}
I pray every single dua we make this Ramadan gets accepted. One of the duas that I wanted to be answered the most took 3 YEARS! So if you have been making dua for something please do not give up. I am extremely grateful to Allah for not anwering my dua for those 3 years. I learnt so many lessons in deen and duniya as a consequence of that dua not being answered for so long. There is always so much wisdom behind Allah’s plan which we seldom cannot see or get irritated with.
“Had Allah lifted the veil for His slave and shown him how He handles his affairs for him, and how Allah is more keen for the benefit of the slave than His own self, his heart would have melted out of the love for Allah and would have been torn to pieces out of thankfulness to Allah.
Therefore if the pains of this world tire you do not grieve. For it may be that Allah wishes to hear your voice by way of dua. So pour out your desires in prostration and forget about it and know, that verily Allah does not forget it.” 

- Ibn al Qayyim (rahimahullah)
Be consistent and ask for whatever you want. Allah is the owner of the heavens and the Earth! For Him nothing is impossible.
No person by himself is capable of fighting against the current of misfortune or trials, nor can humans fend off  the blows of disaster & tests when they strike. This is because man was created weak and fragile. However, when in times of difficulty, the believer places his dependency and trust with his Lord; he knows that all difficulties can be overcome. By leaving your affairs to Allah, by depending upon Him, by trusting in His promise, by being pleased with His decree, by thinking favorably of Him, and by waiting patiently for His help, you reap some of the greater fruits of faith and display the more prominent characteristics of the believer. When you incorporate these qualities into your character, you will be at peace concerning the future, because you will depend on your Lord for everything. As a result, you will find care, help, protection, and victory.

nn @ sakit itu nikmat




SAKIT ITU NIKMAT

sakit itu nikmat
sakit itu penghapus dosa (kafarah)
sakit itu ujian
sakit itu bukti cinta Allah
sakit itu ada hikmah yang kita tidak tahu

Ujian sakit adalah guru yang tidak bercakap, tetapi ia sangat mengajar dan mendidik. Ujian terkecil apalagi terbesar adalah takdir Allah. Yang mempunyai maksud tertantu. Kerana jahilnya kita, apabila ditimpa ujian samada secara langsung dari Allah atau melalui orang lain, kita mula melatah. Terasa Allah tidak adil, sengaja hendak menyusahkan kita. Atau kita menyalahkan orang yang mendatangkan ujian tersebut. Hati berdendam hati buruk sangka pada Allah yang mendatangkan ujian itu.

Kita selalu mendengar keluh kesah sesetengah orang yang bertanyakan kenapa agaknya suratan kehidupan mereka begitu susah untuk memperoleh kesenangan dan begitu senang pula mendakap kesusahan.

Mereka iri hati dengan keadaan orang lain yang ditakdirkan senang memperoleh kesenangan secara berterusan. Ada manusia yang hidup senang dan kaya raya, ada hidup susah dan melarat, ada dulunya senang tetapi kemudian hidup melarat.

REDHALAH YANG PALING UTAMA

Hakikatnya, inilah asam garam dan pancaroba kehidupan yang harus diterima dengan hati terbuka. Sebagai khalifah di muka bumi, perlulah kita membuat analisis dan muhasabah. Berfikir secara waras bahawa ketentuan Allah SWT mempunyai seribu satu sebab yang terkandung hikmah dan pengajaran.


Cuba nilai mengapa sesetengah manusia diberikan ujian terlalu hebat oleh Allah SWT?
Mengapa sesetengah yang lain diberi rahmat dan rezeki yang tidak putus-putus?
Mengapa ada yang sihat tubuh badan tetapi bayak berbuat maksiat?

Setiap sesuatu dijadikan atau ditakdirkan-Nya itu pasti ada sebab dan mempunyai hikmah. Manusia hanya perlu bersyukur jika diberikan rahmat dan rezeki yang melimpah ruah.

Firman Allah SWT yang bermaksud:

“Dan jika kamu menghitung nikmat Allah (yang dilimpahkannya kepada kamu), tiadalah kamu akan dapat menghitungnya satu persatu; sesungguhnya Allah Maha Pengampun, lagi Maha Mengasihani.” 

(Surah an-Nahl, ayat 18)

Begitu juga sebaliknya, manusia perlu terus-menerus bersabar andai diuji dengan dugaan demi dugaan. Setiap sesuatu ketentuan perlu dihadapi dengan waras, bijak, tenang, serta berserah tanpa kompromi atau bersyarat kepada Allah SWT.

Tidak perlulah melihat dalam perspektif yang luas, lihat saja diri kita sendiri. Dalam banyak waktu, kita iri hati melihat sahabat yang nampak bahagia sepanjang masa dibanding kita tidak senang atau bahagia seperti mereka.

Hanya dengan cara ini kita akan mengucap syukur Alhamdulillah. Sekurang-kurangnya kita menyedari ketentuan nasib yang lebih baik dan senang berbanding mereka. Hakikatnya, manusia sukar untuk merasa puas.

Oleh itu, sehebat mana ujian yang dihadapi hendaklah reda, bersyukur dan bertawakal kepada-Nya. Giatkan usaha dan berdoa supaya Allah memberikan petunjuk dan mengurniakan keadaan lebih baik daripada sebelum ini.

Allah SWT berfirman yang bermaksud:


“Dan sesungguhnya kami akan berikan cubaan kepada kamu dengan sedikit ketakutan, kelaparan, kekurangan harta, jiwa dan buah-buahan. Dan berikanlah berita gembira kepada orang yang sabar iaitu orang yang apabila ditimpa musibah mereka mengucapkan, Innalillahi Wainna Ilaihi Rajiun, maka itulah mendapat berkat dan rahmat daripada Tuhannya dan mereka itulah orang yang mendapat petunjuk.” (Surah al-Baqarah, ayat 155-157)

SAKIT HANYA SEBAGAI SIGNAL DARI ALLAH

Ada pepatah berkata: “Hanya orang yang miskin tahu nikmat kekayaan, hanya orang sakit tahu nikmat kesihatan, dan hanya orang mati tahu nikmat kehidupan”

Sakit, mampu menjadikan kita beringat. Seakan-akan bila kita sakit, Allah SWT berbisik kepada kita: “Sesungguhnya Aku mampu menarik nikmatKu bila-bila masa sahaja”

Sakit adalah petanda bahawa kita adalah manusia.


Ya, manusia yang lemah. Sebagai yang lemah, kita perlu beringat. Perlu sentiasa sedar akan kekerdilan kita. Didatangkan sakit, adalah untuk kita beringat betapa kita hakikatnya langsung tidak patut mendongak bongkak kepada Yang Maha Berkuasa – Allah SWT.

Percayalah, akan tiba masanya, kalau tidak di dunia, Insyaallah di akhirat kelak, terbit sinar kebahagiaan dan rahmat-Nya menerangi kehidupan, berkat kesabaran serta keimanan menempuhi ujian demi ujian.

Perlu diingat, sebanyak mana harta kemewahan dan kesenangan dianugerah Allah hendaklah disyukuri. Perlu juga diyakini segala nikmat diperoleh dengan izin Allah SWT, dan dengan kehendak Allah juga, boleh hilang dalam sekelip mata.

Allah SWT berfirman yang bermaksud:

“Apakah manusia itu mengira bahawa mereka dibiarkan (saja) mengatakan ‘kami telah beriman’ sedangkan mereka belum lagi diuji? Dan sesungguhnya Kami telah menguji orang yang sebelum mereka, maka sesungguhnya Allah SWT mengetahui orang yang benar dan dan orang yang dusta.” 

(Surah al-Ankabut, ayat 2-3)

Untuk itu, jangan dicela sakit yang menimpa. Ambil penyakit itu sebagai peringatan. Sesungguhnya kita ini manusia yang lupa, dan sakit bencana yang menimpa itu untuk peringatan. Dan tidaklah peringatan itu tiba dari yang bukan memerhatikan. Maka ketahuilah bila anda sakit, Allah hakikatnya sedang memberikan perhatian kepada anda. Bukankah itu satu kemuliaan?

Allah SWT berfirman: 


“Dan apa jua bencana, kesakitan yang menimpa kamu, maka ia adalah daripada tangan-tangan kamu sendiri(dari perbuatan salah dan dosa) dan (dalam pada masa yang sama dikenakan bencana dan sakit itu) Allah mengampunkan sebahagian besar dosa-dosa kamu.” 
(Surah Asy-Syura, ayat 30)

Semoga kita tidak seperti kaduk naik junjung atau luncai yang terjun dengan labu-labunya sehingga dikatakan sebagai orang yang ‘kufur nikmat’. Sakit itu hanya sementara. Mungkin Allah suruh beringat sahaja. Bila dah beringat, Dia akan angkat penyakitnya.


"Tidaklah seorang muslim tertimpa sesuatu penyakit dan sejenisnya melainkan Allah akan menggugurkan bersamanya dosa-dosanya seperti pohon yang menggugurkan daun-daunnya". (Hadis riwayat Bukhari dan Muslim)
