- Rabbi zidnee ilma
“My Lord! Increase me in knowledge”. (Qur’aan: 20:114)
This dua is taught by Muhammad (SAW) by Allah (SWT) Himself. The verse relates to an instruction not to hasten with Qur’aan before it is completely revealed. While revelation of the Qur’aan was incomplete, our Prophet (SAW) was instructed to make this dua. In our situation, when our knowledge is limited about Qur’aan, we should always make this dua to understand Qur’aan more.

“My Lord! Bestow wisdom on me, and join me with the righteous”. (Qur’aan: 26:83)
Prophet Ibrahim (pbuh) made this dua. Ibrahim (pbuh) was making dawah to his father Azar and his people. The people were disbelievers. Ibrahim (pbuh) while explaining to the people about the truth and benefits of obeying Allah (SWT), made this dua. This dua stresses that our knowledge should guide us to be righteous. We are to be righteous, not blindly, but based on sound knowledge and wisdom.
