Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barkatuh!

An invocation or a Du'a is not the crutch of the weak or the incapable.
It is the finest strategy for all kinds of success
- whether material or spiritual.
Most of the time men have worded their invocations
in their own languages.
However, the finest of the invocations are the ones worded by
Allah Subhanuhu wa Ta`ala Himself
and mentioned in the Noble Qur'an.

Allah Subhanuhu wa Ta`ala says (interpretation of the meaning):

"And when My slaves ask you
(O Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)
concerning Me, then (answer them),
I am indeed near (to them by My Knowledge).
I respond to the invocations of the supplicant
when he calls on Me (without any mediator or intercessor) .
So let them obey Me and believe in Me,
so that they may be led aright.

(The Noble Qur'an: Chapter #2, Verse #186)

We would like to share
some invocations from the Noble Qur'an.
Since these invocations are mentioned in Qur'an
and are taught to us by
Allah Subhanuhu wa Ta`ala Himself
they are the best and perfect invocations.
What's more, Allah has promised that
He will respond to supplications
made by the righteous, by the sinners
and even by unbelievers.


Our Lord!
We have indeed believed,
so forgive us our sins and save us
from the punishment of the hellfire.

(The Noble Qur'an: Chapter #3, Verse #16)



O our Lord! We believe in
what You have sent down,and we follow the Messenger
(peace be upon him),
so Write us down among those who bear witness.
