Ramadan has started and most of us mums are busy with cleaning, preparing iftar & suhoor, taraweeh, family gatherings among the other normal daily chores. Ramadan is such a spiritual month and it is strongly believed that prayers are accepted during the holy month, for this reason most of us pray more (taraweeh and tahajjud). We keep the entire ummah in our prayers and pray for our loved ones. Ramadan is the perfect time to make lots of dua’a for our little ones.
Today being the 4th day of the blessed month of Ramadan, Here are 4 of my favourite dua’as for our children from the Quran and Hadith.
- For your little ones to pray
I can’t wait in a few more Ramadans my son will be old enough to accompany his father to taraweeh prayers and Jummah prayers In Sha Allah. This dua’a is from surat Ibrahim ayah 40
“O my lord! Make me one who establishes regular prayer and also raise such among my offspring. Our lord, and accept my supplication.”
- For your little ones to be righteous and well mannered
This supplication is from Surat Al Imran ayah 38. It is the dua’a prophet zakariya made when asking Allah for offsprings. This dua’a is highly recommended for couples when trying to conceive or expecting a child. In my opinion this is also a good supplication that we can make for our children, that they can grow to be righteous.
“My Lord grant me from your bounty, righteous offspring. Verily You are the One who is the hearer of supplications”
- For your little ones to be a source of your happiness
This is one of my all times favourite supplication. This is a dua’a for both your spouse and your little ones, that you find comfort and happiness when you look at them. This supplication is for us to be in the state of tranquility with our family. It is from Surat al Furqan ayah 74.
“Our Lord! Bestow on us from our spouses and our offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes”
- For protecting your little one from every evil
This is the dua’a that prophet Muhammad (PBUH) used to recite for his grandchildren Al Hassan & Al Hussien seeking Allah’s protection.
“I commend you to the protection of Allah’s perfect words from every devil, vermin, and every evil eye.”
