Qur'anic Dua - 08 (English)


رَبِّ هَبْ لِي مِن لَّدُنْكَ ذُرِّيَّةً طَيِّبَةً إِنَّكَ سَمِيعُ الدُّعَاء


"My Lord, grant me from Yourself virtuous offspring. Indeed, You are the Hearer of supplication."


This dua is mentioned in Surah Aal Imran Ayah No. 38.

This is the supplication of prophet Zakariyya (as). He grew very old and his wife was barren, so apparently there was no hope of having a child. But when he saw fruits with Maryam (as) without season, then his hop to get child sparked and he prayed to Allah for his long awaited wish by the above Dua, and finally Allah has granted his wish and blessed him with a baby boy, who was later known by Yahya (as).

Prophet Zakariyya (as) prayed for righteous offspring, which teaches us that we should always think about our children’s Deen and his life after death.

 Childless couple should pray to Allah with dua for being blessed with the child.
