Although praying is the primary form of worship in Islam, however, Islam also encourages its followers to extend their relationship with Allah Almighty and indulge in additional forms of praying. Thus, Quran recitation, the offering of Nawafils and making dua are some added ways of worshiping Allah Almighty.

In addition to being a means of worship, making dua or supplicating in front of Allah Almighty is one of the best ways of presenting the personal needs to Him and seeking His support and courtesy in return. The lines below give 10 beautiful duas from the Holy Quran that a Muslim can and must recite to gain different kinds of benefits from Quran.

Before moving on to the duas, it is imperative that a Muslim understands the importance of duas. Prophet Muhammad (SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said in one of His hadiths:

“Verily your Lord is Generous and Shy. If His servant raises his hands to Him (in supplication) He becomes shy to return them empty.”

[Tirmidhi]

Thus, from this hadith it becomes clear that supplicating in front of Allah Almighty is actually a means of getting what we want, thus if supplication is done with a true heart, Allah Almighty does grant His subjects with their wishes. The 10 beautiful duas that Muslims must remember are as follows:

Protection From Fire In Hereafter:

For Muslims, this world is merely transitory and the real life lies in the world hereafter. However, as errors come with being human, therefore, those who commit sins and do evil will be punished by Allah in the afterlife. Hence, Muslims must ask for protection from the fire of Hell. Quran mentions of the dua for this very reason in the following way:

of endurance and impatience, we face all kinds of problems such as stress
“Our Lord! Grant us good in this world and good in the life to come and keep us safe from the torment of the Fire” (2:201)

For Patience And Endurance:

One of the major problem with humans of the present age is that we are all impatient and cannot face difficulty. Due to this lack of endurance and impatience, we face all kinds of problems such as stress, depression anxiety and so on, therefore, one must ask for endurance from Allah Almighty, the supplication for which is as follows:

one seeks the forgiveness from Allah

Our Lord! Bestow on us endurance and make our foothold sure and give us help against those who reject faith. (2:250)

Therefore, in order to purify that heart it is imperative that a person asks for forgiveness from Allah Almighty and supplicate to Him for purification of heart. The way of doing so mentioned in Quran is as follows:

Hence, if one wishes to seek truth then who else can be a better source for the truth other than Allah Almighty. Quran mentions of such dua in the following way:

Our Lord! Lay open the truth between us and our people, for You are the best of all to lay open the truth. (7:89)
