DUA BEFORE STUDYING
“Allahumma infa’nii bimaa ‘allamtanii wa’allimnii maa yanfa’uunii. Allahumma inii as’aluka fahmal-nabiyyen wa hifzal mursaleen al-muqarrabeen. Allahumma ijal leesanee ‘aiman bi dhikrika wa qalbi bi khashyatika. Innaka ‘ala ma-tasha’u qadeer wa anta hasbun-allahu wa na’mal wakeel.”
Oh Allah! Make useful for me what you have taught me and teach me knowledge that will be useful to me.
Oh Allah! I ask you for the understanding of the prophets and the memory of the messengers, and those nearest to you.
Oh Allah! Make my tongue full of your remembrance and my heart with consciousness of you.
Oh Allah! You do whatever you wish, and you are my availer and protector and best of aid.
DUA AFTER STUDYING
“Allahumma inni astaodeeka ma qara’tu wama hafaz-tu. Farudduhu ‘allaya inda hajati elahi. Innaka ‘ala ma-tasha’-u qadeer wa anta hasbeeya wa na’mal wakeel”
Oh Allah! I entrust you with what I have read and I have studied.
Oh Allah! Bring it back to me when I am in need of it.
Oh Allah! You do whatever you wish, you are my availer and protector and the best of aid.
DUA WHILE STUDYING SOMETHING DIFFICULT
“Allahumma la sahla illama ja-‘altahu sahla anta taj ‘alu al hazana eza ma shi’ta sahal.”
Oh Allah! Nothing is easy except what you have made easy. If you wish, you can make the difficult easy.”
DUA FOR CONCENTRATION
“Salla-l-laahu alaa Muhammad wa aal-e Muhammad. Allahumma inni as’aluka yaa mudhakkira-l khayr wa faa’ilahu wa-l-aamimira bihi dhakir-ni maa ansaani-hi-shaytan.”
Blessings of god be upon Muhammad and his progeny.
O god, I ask you, the one who mentions goodness and actualizes it and commands it, remind me of that which the shaytan makes me forget.
