Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam
Is there any particular dua to increase the ability to achieve a certain desired deed/goal?
I pray that you are well, insha’Allah.
Imam Nawawi (Allah be pleased with him) relates the following prophetic supplication in his Book of Remembrances (Kitab al-Adhkar):
“O Allah! There is nothing easy except that which You make easy; and You make the difficult, if You wish, easy.”
Allahumma la sahla illa ma ja`altahu sahla wa anta taj`al ul-hazna idha shi’ta sahla
اللهُمَّ لا سَهْلَ إلا مَا جَعَلتَهُ سَهْلا وَ أنتَ تَجْعَلُ الحزْنَ إذا شِئْتَ سَهْلا
Similar wording has been recorded in Sahih Ibn Hibban with an authentic chain of transmission.
And Allah knows best.
