Collection of Short Qur’anic Du`a
My Rabb! I take refuge with You -- from the prompting
of the Evil-ones; And I take refuge with You, O Rabb!
lest they come up to me. AL MU’MINUN 97-98
Praise be to Allah I, we thank Him, seek His Help and His
Forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah I from the evils of ourselves
and that of our bad deeds. He whom Allah I guides, is truly
guided, and he whom Allah I leaves to stray, none can guide
him. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah I, who has no
partner and I bear witness that Muhammad r is His Messenger.

RABBAN TAQABBAL MINN INNAKA
Al Baqarah 127
1. This du`a was read by Ibrahim and Ismail u when they
completed the building of the Ka’bah.
2. The lesson is that a person must not be satisfied with actions
only. Rather, after the action, be humble and beg Allah I to
accept it. This is taught from the action of Ibrahim u. After
completing such a lofty action he does not express pride, rather he
asks Allah I to accept the action.
