Qur'anic Dua - 03 (English)

رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ


“O, our Lord! Grant us the good of this world and the Hereafter, and protect us from the punishment of the Fire.”



This dua is mentioned in Surah Al-Baqrah ayah No. 201.

Before this dua in the Quran, Allah asks mankind to remember Him after completing Haj rituals. Allah teaches us in this dua that we should seek goodness of this world and Hereafter. Because, doing dua only for worldly life is a sign of disbelieving in Aakhirah, the life after death. And doing dua only for the life after death and not for this world’s life is a kind of showing that one is free from any need and does not need Allah’s help for his worldly needs. So both the two attitudes are not correct. The prophets of Allah the most righteous people of the world were also praying to Allah for both lives’ goodness.
