Selected Invocations / Dua " دُعا " from Quran (Reference Page)

The five times prayers (Salah) are obligatory for all Muslims. These are to be offered no matter where one may be, even while travelling (for which a compensation has been allowed). But other than the Salah, the believers more often than not, supplicate to invoke the blessing of Allah for their special needs. The invocations / supplications (Dua / دُعا) are in fact a powerful tool in the hands of believers through which they are able to connect to their Creator through one-to-one connection by getting into a deeper spiritual state.

In fact Allah loves his servants the most when he is in that spiritual state, with closed eye, invoking His blessings. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is reported to have said "Dua is the very essence of worship." There are many special supplications mentioned in the Qur'ān which believers must remember and often include in their supplications for these have been specially chosen for them.

Herein under, we have collected some of the most read supplications from Qur'ān to invoke the blessings of Allah: 
May Allah help us understand Qur'ān and help us to act upon the commandments of Allah contained therein. May Allah also bless our legitimate needs when we invoke His blessings. Aameen.

Reading the Qur'ān should be a daily obligation of a Muslim - Reading it with translation will make it meaningful. But reading its Exegesis / Tafsir will make you understand it fully.

An effort has been made to gather explanation / exegesis of the surahs of the Qur'ān from authentic sources and then present a least possible condensed explanation of the surah. In that:
  • The plain translation has been taken from the Qur'ān officially published by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. [1]
  • The exegesis of the chapters of the Quran is mainly based on the "Tafhim al-Qur'an - The Meaning of the Qur'an" by one of the most enlightened scholars of the Muslim World Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi. [2]  
In order to augment and add more explanation as already provided by [2], additional input has been interjected from following sources: 
  • Towards Understanding the Quran
  • Tafsir Ibn Khatir
  • Muhammad Asad Translation
  • Javed Ahmad Ghamidi / Al Mawrid
  • Al-Quran, Yusuf Ali Translation
  • Verse by Verse Qur'an Study Circle
In addition the references of  other sources which have been explored have also been given above. Those desirous of detailed explanations and tafsir (exegesis), may refer to these sites.
