The month of Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was sent down,
a guidance for the people, and clear verses of guidance and criterion.
[Quran: Chapter 2:183]

Ramadan Duas | Duaas for the First 10 Days of Ramadan

The meaning of Dua is Supplication to God, that is, your personal communication to Allah. There are far more non-Arabic speaking Muslims than Arab speaking Muslims in the world. Some of them mistakenly believe that duas are simply Quranic verses said by the Imams after prayers, and so they memorize Arabic duas to repeat themselves without fully understanding what they are saying.

You do not have to do that. Allah understands you, no matter what language you speak. Allah also knows you deep in and out - all of your feelings that you may try to hide outwardly. When you say a dua to God, you are essentially communicating aloud to him what He knows resides in your heart - so there is no reason for you to hold back.

The holy month of Ramadan is an especially good time for believers to ask God for what they want. Be it for peace in their lives, help from adversity, or to excel at school or work.

The Hadith has said this of Dua:

Dua (supplication) is the essence of worship. (Anas, Tirmidhi).

The Prophet said: Duas of three persons are not refused: a fasting man when breaking the fast, a just ruler, and an oppressed person, Allah's blessings be upon him. (Abu Huraira, Tirmidhi).

No one makes a Dua without Allah giving him what he asks for, or keeping away from him a similar amount of evil, provided he does not ask for something sinful, or for breaking family ties (Jabir, Tirmidhi).

The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny) has said:
It (Ramadhan) is the month, whose beginning is mercy, its middle, forgiveness and its end, emancipation from the fire (of hell) -- Bihar al-Anwar, Vol.: 93, Pg.: 342

Ashra is an Arabic word which means "ten." In Islamic terminology, the 1st Ashra refers to the first 10 days of the Holy month of Ramadan. The second Ashra refers to the middle 10 days (11-20), and the third Ashra refers to the last set of 10 days (21-30).

You may say your own Ramadan Duas. But some of us may find it difficult to find the words to speak to God. Hence, we have compiled a list of recommended Duas to get you started (in english language).

Duas for the First 10 Days of Ramadan (1st Ashra)

O Allah, on this day make my fasts the fasts of those who fast (sincerely), and my standing up in prayer of those who stand up in prayer (obediently), awaken me in it from the sleep of the heedless, and forgive me my sins, O God of the worlds, and forgive me, O one who forgives the sinners.

Dear Reader, Assalaamu’alaikum.

Ramadan Mubarak. We wish you a blessed and productive Ramadan! Make no mistake about it - keeping the fast and increasing our acts of worship during this blessed month is not an easy task. The physical demands of balancing work or school with fasting all day, feeling fatigued and less effective than you normally are, waking up for Suhoor, praying Teraweeh and Tahajjud prayers, dealing with sleep deficits.

But the last thing we would want is to let Ramadan pass us by without doing all that we aim and desire to. Do not allow yourself to feel guilty or regretful when Ramadan passes.

The Ramadan Series will send you emails with practical tips on how to gain and maintain the physical and spiritual energy necessary to embark on increased religious oligations so that you will reap the benefits from this blessed month. This includes special Ramadan duas to say during the month. Do sign-up today!
