Question: Exams
Dear Respected Mufti Saheb,
As the exam period is here, i was wandering if prior to exams or awaiting the results if there is any dua that we could read for success.
I humbly request that all the respected ulama remember all the brothers and sisters who are taking exams in their duas.

Jazakallahu Khair

Bismihi Ta'ala

Firstly, it is advisable to perform two Raka'ahs (units) of optional prayer. Thereafter, raise your hands to Allah, and after praising him and sending prayers on Rasoolullah Sallallahu alaihi wasallam, ask Allah to help and assist you throughout your exam period. Also, effort is the key to preparations. If a person relies on Du'a without effort then Allah may not help them because of the inability to pass.

Secondly, a person may recite the following Du'as in abundance, no specific time, but as many times possible throughout the day:

A. Rabbi innee maghloobun fantasir.
B. Rabbi zidnee ilman
C. Rabbish rahlee sadree wa yassir lee amree wahlul uqdatammin lisanee yafqahoo qawli.

May Allah assist all those who make efforts to achieve the best in their exams.

Mufti Yaseen Shaikh
