اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ خَيْرَ الْمَسْأَلَةِ،وَخَيْرَ الدُّعَاءِ، وَخَيْرَ النَّجَاحِ، وَخَيْرَ الْعَمَلِ،وَخَيْرَ الثَّوَابِ،وَخَيْرَ الْحَيَاةِ، وَخَيْرَ الْمَمَاتِ، وَثَبِّتْنِي، وَثَقِّل مَوَازِينِي، وَحَقِّقْ إِيمَانِي، وَارْفَعْ دَرَجَاتِي، وَتَقَبَّلْ صَلاَتِي، وَاغْفِرْ خَطِيئَتِي، وَأَسْأَلُكَ الدَّرَجَاتِ العُلاَ مِنَ الْجَنَّةِ، اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ فَوَاتِحَ الْخَيْرِ، وَخَوَاتِمَهُ، وَجَوَامِعَهُ، وَأَوَّلَهُ، وَظَاهِرَهُ، وَبَاطِنَهُ، وَالدَّرَجَاتِ الْعُلَا مِنَ الْجَنَّةِ آمِينْ، اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ خَيْرَ مَا آتِي، وَخَيْرَ مَا أَفْعَلُ، وَخَيْرَ مَا أَعْمَلُ، وَخَيْرَ مَا بَطَنَ، وَخَيْرَ مَا ظَهَرَ، وَالدَّرَجَاتِ العُلَا مِنَ الْجَنَّةِ آمِينْ، اللَّهُمَّ إنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ أنْ تَرْفَعَ ذِكْرِي، وَتَضَعَ وِزْرِي، وَتُصْلِحَ أمْرِي، وَتُطَهِّرَ قَلْبِي، وَتُحَصِّنَ فَرْجِي، وَتُنَوِّرَ قَلْبِي، وَتَغْفِرَ لِي ذَنْبِي، وَأَسْأَلُكَ الدَّرَجَاتِ الْعُلَا مِنَ الْجَنَّةِ آمِينْ، اللَّهُمَّ إنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ أنْ تُبَارِكَ فِي نَفْسِي، وَفِي سَمْعِي، وَفِي بَصَرِي، وَفِي رُوحِي، وَفِي خَلْقِي، وَفِي خُلُقِي، وَفِي أَهْلِي، وَفِي مَحْيَايَ، وَفِي مَمَاتِي، وَفِي عَمَلِي، فَتَقَبَّلْ حَسَنَاتِي، وَأَسْأَلُكَ الدَّرَجَاتِ العُلَا مِنَ الْجَنَّةِ، آمِينْ[1]

O Allah I ask of You the best request, the best supplication, the best success, the best work, the best reward, the best life, and the best death. And make me firm, let my balance (of good) be heavy, fulfill my belief, elevate my position, accept my prayer, and forgive my sin.And I ask of You the highest degrees in Paradise. Ameen.O Allah I ask of You the beginnings of good, and the endings of good, all its aspects, its first, and its last, its apparent (side) and its unapparent (side),and the highest degrees in Paradise. Ameen.O Allah I ask of You the good that comes to me,and the good of what I do, and the good of my workand the good of what I conceal, and the good of what I revealand the highest degrees in Paradise. Ameen.O Allah I ask You to raise high my reputation,relieve me of my burden, set right my affairs,purify my heart, guard my chastity,illuminate my heart, and forgive my sin.And I ask of You the highest degrees in Paradise. Ameen.O Allah I ask You to bless me in my hearing,in my sight, in my soul,in my body, in my manners, in my family, in my life,in my death, and in my workand to accept my good deeds.And I ask of You the highest degrees in Paradise.

  1. It is narrated by Anas (may Allah have mercy on him): The Prophet () used to say,

 

اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

"O, Allah! Our Lord! Give us in this world that, which is good and in the Hereafter that, which is good and save us from the torment of the Fire."[2]

 

It is narrated from Umm Salamah (may Allah have mercy on her) that when the Prophet () performed the Subh (Morning Prayer) when he said the Salam, he would say:

 

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ عِلْمًا نَافِعًا وَرِزْقًا طَيِّبًا وَعَمَلاً مُتَقَبَّلاً

“O Allah, I ask You for beneficial knowledge, goodly provision and acceptable deeds.’”[3]

 

The above two Duas can be recited for blessings.

  1. The Dua mentioned in Answer no.1 can be recited before starting work in the morning.
  2. It is narrated by Ibn `Abbas (may Allah be pleased with them both): The Prophet () used to seek Refuge with Allah for Al-Hasan and Al-Husain and say: "Your forefather (i.e. Abraham) used to seek Refuge with Allah for Ismail and Ishaaq by reciting the following:

 

أَعُوذُ بِكَلِمَاتِ اللَّهِ التَّامَّةِ مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْطَانٍ وَهَامَّةٍ، وَمِنْ كُلِّ عَيْنٍ لاَمَّةٍ

'O, Allah! I seek Refuge with Your Perfect Words from every devil and from poisonous pests and from every evil, harmful, envious eye.' "[4]

 

اللهمَّ إنِّي أعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ جَهْدِ الْبَلَاءِ، وَدَرَكِ الشَّقَاءِ، وَسُوءِ الْقَضَاءِ، وَشَمَاتَةِ الْأَعْدَاءِ

‘O, Allah! I seek you protection from the difficult moment of a calamity and from being overtaken by destruction and from being destined to an evil end, and from the malicious joy of enemies.’[5]

 

The above Duas can be used for protection against the evil eye and any enemy.

Other than the above Duas one may supplicate to Allah in their own language as it is not necessary to make Dua in Arabic.
