Qur'anic Dua - 05 (English)

 

سَمِعْنَا وَأَطَعْنَا غُفْرَانَكَ رَبَّنَا وَإِلَيْكَ الْمَصِيرُ.

رَبَّنَا لاَ تُؤَاخِذْنَا إِن نَّسِينَا أَوْ أَخْطَأْنَا رَبَّنَا وَلاَ تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْنَا إِصْرًا كَمَا حَمَلْتَهُ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِنَا رَبَّنَا وَلاَ تُحَمِّلْنَا مَا لاَ طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهِ وَاعْفُ عَنَّا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا وَارْحَمْنَآ أَنتَ مَوْلاَنَا فَانصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ.

 

Translation:

We hear and we obey. [We seek] Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You we shall all return." "Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred. Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, do not place on us a burden we have not the strength to bear!  And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy upon us. You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people."

Explanation:

This duas is mentioned in the last two ayahs of Surah Al-Baqrah. It is narrated from Ata that when angel Jibrael recited these ayahs, prophet (saws) said Aameen Ya Rabbal Aalameen on each supplication. So, one should say Aamin while listening to this supplication even in Nafl Salah. In this supplication, refuge is sought from the hard divine orders, for example once Banu Israel were ordered even to be killed for repentance.

There are many virtues for this supplication, for example in one hadith Prophet (saws) says that whoever recites the last two ayahs of Surah Al-Baqra, then these ayahs will be enough for him. (Bukhari)
