Can You Recommend a Du’a to Find Ease in Practicing Religion?


Thank you for your question. I commend you for your sincere intention to live a religious lifestyle and I pray that Allah gives you that ease tenfold, such that you would not know or desire anything else.


رَبَّنَآ ءَامَنَّا بِمَآ أَنزَلْتَ وَٱتَّبَعْنَا ٱلرَّسُولَ فَٱكْتُبْنَا مَعَ ٱلشَّـٰهِدِينَ

“Our Lord! We believe in Your revelations and follow the messenger, so count us among those who bear witness.” [Quran, 3:53]

رَبِّ ٱجْعَلْنِى مُقِيمَ ٱلصَّلَوٰةِ وَمِن ذُرِّيَّتِى ۚ رَبَّنَا وَتَقَبَّلْ دُعَآءِ

My Lord! Make me and those ˹believers˺ of my descendants keep up prayer. Our Lord! Accept my prayers. [Quran, 14:40]

‏اللّهُمّ اكْفِني بِحَلالِكَ عَن حَرامَِ، وأغْنِني بِفَضلِكَ عَمَّنْ سِواك.

O Allah! Grant me enough of what You make lawful so that I may dispense with what You make unlawful, and enable me by Your Grace to dispense with all but You). [Tirmidhi]
