The Powerful Du’aa of a Parent:
In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful,
All praises are for Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’aala, the most Compassionate, the most Forgiving.
Salutations and blessings be upon our Nabi Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, his family and companions.
Oh Allah, I submit myself to you.
I realise that parenting a child is a very difficult task and I turn to You in humility for Your help.
I implore you for Your wisdom and guidance.
Oh Allah, I know that our children are an amanaat from You, to care for and raise.
Help me do that in the best way.
Teach me how to love in a way that You would have me love.
Help me where I need to be healed, improved, natured and made whole.
Help me walk in righteousness, and integrity, so that you may always be pleased with me.
Allow me to be a God fearing role model with all the communication, teaching and nurturing skills that I may need.
Oh Allah, you know what our children need. Help and guide us in praying for our children.
Oh Allah, put a hedge of safety around our children. Protect their bodies, minds and emotions from any kind of evil and harm.
Oh Allah, I pray that You protect them from accidents, diseases, injuries and any other physical, mental or emotional afflictions and abuse.
Oh Allah, I pray that you keep our children free from any addictions and vices.
Draw them close to You for protection from every ill and evil influence of our society, whether it’s apparent to us or not.
Oh Allah, grant our children hidayaah and a heart that loves to obey You.
Shine Your light on any secret or unseen rebellion in their hearts and destroy it before it takes root.

Penetrate their hearts with Your love today and always …

Oh Allah, always keep our children cleansed and pure from evil and shaytaan.
Oh Allah, keep them steadfast in establishing Salaah and help them revere the Glorious Quran as Your Word and Law
and to read it with understanding daily. Let it be their source of light and guidance.
Oh Allah, let our daughters love wearing hijab and our sons the dress of a humble Muslim.
Let their dress be a representation of their Imaan and of their love and respect for Your commands.
Lead them to a position where they rely truly on Your power alone and fear You in the open and in secret.
Oh Allah, make them so strong in their deen that they never encounter doubt.
Oh Allah, do not allow any negative attitudes in the place of our children’s lives.

Make them the coolness of our eyes.
Oh Allah, fill our children with compassion and caring that will overflow to each member of our family.
Oh Allah, grant them piety. Help them love, value and appreciate and respect one another with good communication between them always.
Oh Allah, drive out any division between our children and bring them healing.
I pray there be no strain, breach, misunderstanding, arguing, fighting or severing of ties..
Oh Allah, I pray for a close, loving, happy and fulfilling relationship with them for all the days of our lives…
آمِيْن يَارَبَّ الْعَالَمِينْ
