Qur'anic Dua - 06 (English)
رَبَّنَا لاَ تُزِغْ قُلُوبَنَا بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَيْتَنَا وَهَبْ لَنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ رَحْمَةً إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْوَهَّابُ
"Our Lord, let not our hearts deviate after You have guided us and grant us from Yourself mercy. Indeed, You are the Munificent Giver.
This dua is mentioned in Surah Aal-e Imran aayah No. 8.
In the Quran, before this dua, it is mentioned that righteous people never become proud and arrogant though they have sea of knowledge, and they keep praying for steadfastness, here their one more supplication is mentioned in this dua. This dua teaches us that right guidance and misguidance (hidyat and Zalalat) both are in Allah’s hands, He gives Hidyah whom He wants and He even gives Zalat after giving Hidaya too. So, we should keep praying for the steadfastness on the Hidaya. Even Prophet (saws) used to pray “O, Changer of the hearts, keep our hearts steadfast on the religion.”
Before second dua, it is mentioned in the Quran that the pious people and the ones with whom Allah is pleased, they pray in this way.
