The Powerful Dua of a Parent
In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful

All praises are for Allah SWT, the most Compassionate, the most Forgiving.

Salutations and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad SAW, his family and companions.

Oh Allah, I submit myself to You.

I realize that parenting a child is a very difficult task and I turn to You in humility for Your help.

I implore You for Your wisdom and guidance.

Oh Allah, I know that our children are an amaanat from You, to care for and to raise in a manner that is pleasing to You.

Help me do that in the best way.

Teach me how to love in a way that You would have me love.

Help me where I need to be healed, improved, nurtured, and made whole.

Help me walk in righteousness and integrity so that You may always be pleased with me.

Allow me to be a God-fearing role model with all the communication, teaching, and nurturing skills that I may need.

Oh Allah, You know what our children need. Help and guide us in praying for our children.

Oh Allah, put a hedge of safety around our children. Protect their bodies, minds, and emotions from any kind of evil and harm.

Oh Allah, I pray that You protect them from accidents, diseases, injuries, and any other physical, mental, or emotional afflictions and abuse.

Oh Allah, I pray that You keep our children free from any addictions and vices.

Draw them close to You for protection from every ill and evil influence of our society, whether it’s apparent to us or not.

Oh Allah, grant them the best of company as their friends — people who will inspire them to love and worship and obey You.

Oh Allah, grant our children hidaaya and a heart that loves to obey You.

Shine Your light on any secret or unseen rebellion in their hearts and destroy it before it takes root.

Oh Allah, guide them away from any pride, selfishness, jealousy, hypocrisy, malice, and greed and make them uncomfortable with sins.

Penetrate their hearts with Your love and reverence today and always.

Oh Allah, make apparent to them the truth in any situation and let them not be misled by falsehood.

Oh Allah, grant our children the ability to make clear decisions and let them always be attracted to good things that are pure, noble, true, and just.

Oh Allah, guide them in making choices that please You.

Oh Allah, help them to taste the sweetness of walking with a humble spirit in obedience and submission to You.

Oh Allah, grant them the wisdom to choose their words carefully and bless them with a generous and caring spirit.

Oh Allah, I pray that they never stray from the path of deen and that You give them a future filled with Your best promises.

Oh Allah, always keep our children cleansed and pure from evil and shaytaan.

Oh Allah, keep them steadfast in establishing Salaah and help them revere the Glorious Quran as Your Word and Law and to read it with understanding daily. Let it be their source of light and guidance.

Oh Allah, let our daughters love wearing hijab and our sons the dress of a humble Muslim.

Let their dress be a representation of their Imaan and of their love and respect for Your commands.

Lead them to a position where they rely truly on Your power alone and fear You in the open and in secret.

Oh Allah, make them so strong in their deen that they never encounter doubt.

Oh Allah, do not allow any negative attitudes in the place of our children’s lives.

Oh Allah, guide our children in honouring and obeying You, Your Rasool (peace be upon him), and us as parents (when we are commanding that which is pleasing to You).

Make them the coolness of our eyes.

Oh Allah, fill our children with compassion and caring that will overflow to each member of our family.

Oh Allah, grant them piety.

Oh Allah, help them love, value, appreciate, and respect one another with good communication between them always.

Oh Allah, drive out any division between our children and bring them healing.

I pray there be no strain, breach, misunderstanding, arguing, fighting, or severing of ties.

Oh Allah, allow them to one day marry righteous, God-fearing, kind, hard-working, intelligent, beautiful, healthy spouses who get along with and respect and love (and genuinely enjoy) every member of our family and who lead our children (i.e. their spouses) even closer to You and Jannat ul Firdaus.

Oh Allah, please grant me the company of pious friends, relatives, extended community members, and teachers who will be inspirational role models for my children and will help me raise them to be the best of believers.

Oh Allah, please don’t let me become self-satisfied and arrogant in my parenting, but please don’t humble me or shame me through my children’s misdeeds either. Please let me always give credit for their good character to You and please don’t ever let me stop praying for them.

Oh Allah, please don’t let my children be “late” in meeting any of life’s milestones that are expected of them.

Oh Allah, protect my children from debt. Make them givers and not takers.

Oh Allah, grant my children noble professions with halal incomes that give them respect and dignity in Your Eyes and in the eyes of their fellow human beings.

Oh Allah, grant them worldly comfort so that my children can come to You through the Door of Gratitude and so that they are not forced to come to You through the Door of Patience. Please let them always be grateful…and patient.

Oh Allah, I pray for a close, loving, happy and fulfilling relationship with them for all the days of our lives and to be reunited with them in Jannat ul Firdaus. آمِيْن يَارَبَّ الْعَالَمِينْ

In addition to the above is I heard one of the Mashaykh mention some time back. About not making Bad Dua against your children and some parents do it indirectly without realising.

I have to say I have seen this habit more prevalent amongst our Desi Sisters and Aunties. The habit of mocking others who are being tested by their children.

For example somebody they know has a child who is on drugs. They will make a specific point of highlighting this in a conversation in order to make the other person feel small and degrade them.

As an example the conversation will go something like this... " My son is doing brilliantly in his studies and will be starting University soon. How about your son whats he up to.? "

Now they already know the other womans son is a druggy, so they just feel the need to rub it in and gloat. Not realising that this is something really displeasing to Allah the person who is being tested by their child will be in a state of deep sorrow and by mocking them they are attracting a bad dua against their own children.

If their own children are living a sensible and pious life that is ultimately a favour of Allah and they should make Shukr. And if they hear of someone elses child is up to no good. Then they should make dua for that childs guidance and for his/her parents. And seek Allahs protection from their own children from being misguided.

Here is something you should do As a Parent.

There is a Hadith that says if you make Dua for others the Angels make Dua for you and ask ALLAH to bless you with the samething.

So if you hear of someones child with-in the immediate circle of your friends and family who has done well in their academic studies. Make Dua for them and Ask Allah to bless them with Khayr and Barakah.

If you hear that someones child has got engaged make Dua that ALLAH blesses them Khayr and Barakah in their marriage. Bless them with pious and righteous offspring.

If you hear of anyones child  who is doing well in their religious studies, done Hifz or made Umrah or done Hajj ask ALLAH to bless them and accept their worship and grant them Khayr  and Barakah.

If you hear that someones child has started a business or is involved in charitable works make Dua and ask ALLAH to bless them khayr and Barakah and to increase.

If you hear of the good manners and Ikhlaq of someones child then Ask ALLAH to increase them and to bless them with more.

If you hear of someones child is ill make Dua and ask ALLAH to heal them and bless them with good-health.

If you hear that someones child is involved in something that they should not be. Ask ALLAH to bless them with guidance and Hidayah and to cure them of their bad-habits. etc.

Everytime you do this the Angels will make Dua and ask ALLAH to bless your child with the same.

Hadith on Dua: Angels supplicate for you as you do for others

Abu Darda reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “No Muslim servant supplicates for his brother behind his back but that the angel says: And for you the same.”

Source: Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 2732

Grade: Sahih (authentic) according to Muslim
