Knowledge Supplications!

رَّبِّ زِدْنِي عِلْمًا

"My Lord! Increase me in knowledge." (Qur’ân 20:114) 

اللّهُـمَّ إِنِّـي أَسْأَلُـكَ عِلْمـاً نافِعـاً وَرِزْقـاً طَيِّـباً ، وَعَمَـلاً مُتَقَـبَّلاً

"O Allah, I ask You for knowledge which is beneficial and sustenance which is good, and deeds which are acceptable." [صحيح ابن ماجه 1/152]


Wisdom Supplication!

رَبِّ هَبْ لِي حُكْمًا وَأَلْحِقْنِي بِالصَّالِحِينَ وَاجْعَلْ لِي لِسَانَ صِدْقٍ فِي الْآخِرِينَ وَاجْعَلْنِي مِنْ وَرَثَةِ جَنَّةِ النَّعِيمِ

My Rabb (Cherisher and Sustainer)! Bestow wisdom (religious knowledge, right judgment of the affairs) on me, and join me with the righteous. And grant me an honorable mention in later generations. And make me one of the inheritors of the Paradise of Delight. (Qur’ân 26:83)
