A Collection of Powerful Duas for Ramadan: Blessings Await

Dua embodies a sincere conversation with Allah Almighty where we seek His guidance to overcome challenges and articulate our desires.

Dua serves as a spiritual anchor, enhancing our understanding, internalisation, and immersion in the profound experience of Ramadan. To facilitate a deeper connection, translations of these Duas are provided, aiding us in comprehending and embracing the spiritual essence of this sacred period.

Dua to Begin Your Fasting (Suhoor)

وَبِصَوْمِ غَدٍ نَّوَيْتُ مِنْ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ

“I intend to keep the fast for tomorrow in the month of Ramadan.”

“Eat suhoor, for in suhoor there is blessing.” (Bukhari and Muslim)

The main thing here is one's intention, or niyyah. Additionally, it is recommended to say this dua.

ذَهَبَ الظَّمَأُ ، وَابْتَلَّتِ الْعُرُوقُ ، وَثَبَتَ الأَجْرُ إِنْ شَاءَ اللهُ

“The thirst has passed, and the veins are moist, and reward is secured if Allah wills.”

Salman ibn ‘Amir reported that Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said, “When one of you breaks his fast, let him break it with dates for they are blessed. If they are not found, let him break it with water for it is pure.”

The Prophet recited this dua after breaking his fast, and scholars like Abu Dawood, Al-Daaraqutni, and Ibn Hajar have narrated it.


Dua to Seek Exoneration (Sayyid al-Istighfar)

اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ رَبِّى لاَ إِلهَ إِلاَ أَنْتَ ، خَلَقْتَنِى وَ أنَا عَبْدُكَ وَ أنَا عَلَى عَهْدِكَ ما اسْتَطَعْتُ ، أعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِ مَا صَنَعْت ، أَبُوءُ لَكَ بِنِعْمَتِكَ عَلَىَّ وَ أبُوءُ بِذَنْبى فَاغْفِرْ لِى فإِنَّهُ لاَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ

“O, Allah! You are my Lord! None has the right to be worshipped but You. You created me and I am Your slave, and I am faithful to my covenant and my promise as much as I can. I seek refuge with You from all the evil I have done. I acknowledge before You all the blessings You have bestowed upon me, and I confess to You all my sins. So I entreat You to forgive my sins, for nobody can forgive sins except You.”

Throughout Ramadan, it is recommended to repeatedly recite the daily dua, seeking Allah's forgiveness as frequently as possible. While repentance (tawbah) can be sought through various duas, this specific invocation holds distinct significance and serves as an ideal supplication for seeking Allah's forgiveness.


Dua if you are angered by someone while fasting

In accordance with the teachings of the hadith, the sayings of the Prophet, and the Quran, maintaining calmness and avoiding anger is deemed a paramount concern during Ramadan. The wise advice of Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) suggests that when provoked, it is advisable to refrain from verbal reaction, exercise self-control, and respond by saying:

إِنِّي صَائِمٌ ، إِنِّي صَائِمٌ

“I am fasting, I am fasting.”

اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّكَ عُفُوٌّ تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي

“Oh Allah, you are pardoning and you love to pardon, so pardon me.”

Laylatul Qadr, also known as the Night of Power, holds immense significance in Islam, offering numerous benefits. It is a night of forgiveness, mercy, and blessings. According to Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ),  Muslims who pray to Almighty Allah on this night with genuine faith and sincerity can attain forgiveness of all their past sins. While the exact night remains uncertain, scholars commonly presume it to occur within the last 10 nights of Ramadan. Consequently, it is recommended to recite this particular Dua every night throughout the month of Ramadan.


Dua for Seeking Protection (from Hellfire)

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ رِضَاكَ وَالجَنَّةَ ، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ سَخَطِكَ وَالنَّارِ

“O Allah, I ask of Your pleasure and for Paradise, and I seek refuge from Your displeasure and from the Hellfire.”

As Muslims, it is very important to make dua for our afterlife (akhirah). In the sacred month of Ramadan, our prayers and supplications are particularly receptive to Allah's acceptance. Consequently, reciting the dua for seeking protection from the hellfire is highly encouraged during both day and night.

رَّبِّ ارْحَمْهُمَا كَمَا رَبَّيَانِي صَغِيرًا

“My Lord, have mercy upon them (parents) as they brought me up (when I was) small.”

It is our responsibility to show kindness and respect to our parents, given their paramount role in our lives. Taking the time to offer dua for our parents during the last 10 days can invite Allah's blessings upon them and, in return, upon yourself.


Dua for Good Provision 

رَبِّ إِنِّى لِمَآ أَنزَلْتَ إِلَىَّ مِنْ خَيْرٍۢ فَقِيرٌۭ

 “My Lord, indeed I am, for whatever good You would send down to me, in need.”


Dua for Righteous Spouse and Offspring

رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا

Our Lord, grant us comfort for our eyes among our spouses and offspring, and make us leaders among the righteous. [Surat al-Furqan 25:74]

رَبِّ تَوَفَّنِي مُسْلِمًا وَأَلْحِقْنِي بِالصَّالِحِينَ

Allow me to die as a Muslim and join me with the righteous. [Surat Yusuf 12:101]

Desiring a specific state in death emphasizes the importance of living in that state since death can be unpredictable. When making this dua, we're essentially asking Allah to keep us steadfast in Islam throughout our lives. It's not a prayer for a hastened death but a plea for a positive conclusion to life. Additionally, we seek to be in the company of prophets and chosen servants in the gardens of bliss in the hereafter.
