Dua is the simplest way a Muslim can communicate and establish a connection with Allah. It is an important part of our faith and belief. In the Quran Surah Baqarah Allah says, “When my servants ask you about me, (tell them), I am really close to them, I listen to the prayer of each supplicant when he invokes me” ayah 186.

Making Dua is similar to establishing prayer, it’s a way for us to express remembrance of Allah. Each dua made is a step getting closer to our lord and an opportunity to ask him to implore his blessings and mercy.

In the Quran Allah has revealed forty duas known as the 40 Rabbana Duas. The reason is because they all begin with the Arabic word “Rabbana” which means “Our Lord”. These Quranic Duas ask Allah for anything we could possibly want in this world and the after. 

Below we have compiled the dua’s in chronological order in which they appear with the english translation and transliteration.
