In the name of Allah , the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.
(Sunnah of Prophet (SAW))

Forgiveness

اللهمّ إنّي ظلمت نفسي ظلماً كثيراً، ولا يغفر الذّنوب إلا أنت فاغفر لي مغفرة من عندك، وارحمني إنّك أنت الغفور الرّحيم

O Allah, I have been very unjust to myself and no one grants pardon against sin but You, therefore forgive me with Your forgiveness and have mercy on me. Surely, You are the forgiver, the Merciful.

Allahumma Innee Dhalamtu nafsee Dhulman Kaseeran, Wa la yagfiru alZunuba illaa anta, fa igfirlee magfiratan min 3ndik, Wa Arhimnee, Innaka ant algafuur arraheem.

Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported:

I asked: “O Messenger of Allah! If I realize Lailat-ul-Qadr (Night of Decree), what should I supplicate in it?” He (ﷺ) replied, “You should supplicate: Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun, tuhibbul-‘afwa, fa’fu ‘anni (O Allah, You are Most Forgiving, and You love forgiveness; so forgive me).” [At-Tirmidhi]

 

Repentance

And [mention] the man of the fish, when he went off in anger and thought that We would not decree [anything] upon him. And he called out within the darknesses, “There is no deity except You; exalted are You. Indeed, I have been of the wrongdoers.(Qur’an 21:87)

 

 

Knowledge

So high [above all] is Allah , the Sovereign, the Truth. And, [O Muhammad], do not hasten with [recitation of] the Qur’an before its revelation is completed to you, and say, “My Lord, increase me in knowledge.(Qur’an 20:114)

Salvation

Indeed, there was a party of My servants who said, “Our Lord, we have believed, so forgive us and have mercy upon us, and You are the best of the merciful.(Qur’an 23:109)

 

And, [O Muhammad], say, “My Lord, forgive and have mercy, and You are the best of the merciful.(Qur’an 23:118)

Parents

And lower to them the wing of humility out of mercy and say, “My Lord, have mercy upon them as they brought me up [when I was] small.(Qur’an 17:24)

Goodness

But among them is he who says, “Our Lord, give us in this world [that which is] good and in the Hereafter [that which is] good and protect us from the punishment of the Fire.(Qur’an 2:201)

Anger

اللَّهُمَّ أَذْهِبْ غَيْظَ قَلْبِي

Oh Allah, remove anger from my heart.

Allahumma azhib Gaydha Qalbee.

اللهم اغسلني من السلبية

Lonliness

اللهُمَّ رَحْمَتَكَ أرجُو، فَلا تَكِلْنِي إلى نَفْسي طَرْفَةَ عَيْنٍ، وأصْلِحْ لي شَأني كُلَّهُ، لا إله إلا أنْتَ.

O Allah, it is Your mercy that I hope for, so do not leave me in charge of my affairs even for a blink of an eye, and rectify for me all of my affairs. None has the right to be worshiped except You.
