I know you are here for the Ramadan Dua list. Well, before I cover the list of Ramadan Dua, let me ask you two questions.
What makes Ramadan so significant and blessed? What makes a Muslim so eager to wait for the month of Ramadan?
The answers to millions of such questions lie in one intention – the desire of achieving Jannah by acquiring the satisfaction of Allah (SWT). Dua plays the core role in achieving the paradise along performing the orders of Allah in the way the Prophet has shown and narrated.
What is Dua?
Dua is an Arabic word that is ‘supplication’ in English. Three little letters that make up a word and a subject that is huge and stunning. This word ‘dua’ could be generally meant mean supplication or conjuring.
Supplication, which means speaking with a god, comes nearer than conjuring which is known to now and then suggest calling spirits or villains.
The Benefits of Dua
The importance and the benefit of dual have been described in several books of Ahadith. Let’s have a chunk of that.
“Dua is the heart of aamal”.
“A slave becomes nearest to his Lord when he is in prostration. So increase supplications in prostrations.’’[Saheeh Muslim]
Another hadith narrates where prophet (PBUH) says, “The supplication of every one of you will be granted if he does not get impatient and say, ‘I supplicated my Lord but my prayer has not been granted’.’’ [Saheeh Al-Bukhari, Saheeh Muslim]
Dua for Ramadan
The month of Ramadan is the most blessed month. It is loaded with the mercy and rewards from the Almighty and the commitment of paradise from our Lord. Realizing the worth of this month, our prophet taught some supplications to his ummah for practicing long before Ramadan comes.
The whole month is immensely sacred and blessed. ‘When Ramadan comes, the Doors of Mercy (another narration says Paradise) are opened, and the doors of Hell are closed, and the Shaitans have locked up’ [Sahih al-Bukhari and others] Thus, these Ahadith imply that the month of Ramadan is the most potential month for asking anything to Allah with the extended mercy of Allah (STW).
Our Prophet (PBUH) taught us plenty of supplications. Let’s learn some of them before this Ramadan.
