Question: What is a good dua to make for studying?
Answer: Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
Thank you for your question.
The dua you mentioned is a nice one, and there is certainly no harm in using it. I don’t think it is ascribed to the Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace) though, or any of his Companions for that matter.
There is a nice dua for the ease that is authentic:
Allahumma la sahla illa ma ja’altahu sahla Wa anta tajalu l-hazna idha shi’ta sahlan.
O Allah, nothing is easy save that which You make easy,
And You make that which is hard easy if You so wish. (Ibn Hibban and others)
If you start talking about something else, there is no need to repeat, but there is also no harm in repeating from time to time.
I pray this helps.
