Dua for knowledge and exam success 




Rabi shrahli sadri wa ya sirli amri wah’lul ukda taminli sani yafkahu qouli.

O my lord! Open my heart, make my work easy for me, and remove the impediment from my speech so that they may understand my speech.


Recite the above verses as much as you can, especially before you sit for studies, recite at least 11 times. Inshallah you will get good marks, and get success in whatever career you choose, by Allah’s mercy and grace, Ameen

  22. Nabiela says:

    My child is having difficulty in talking he is not understood by other people. he dosent stutter/stummer but speech in unclear. he is now 4 years. sum 1 told me to read the above dua once in the morning blow it on breakfast for 40 days? do i do this and is there anything else i can do to read on him and make his speech clear???

    • shadaanalam says:

      Yes sister you are right, this dua is one of the most beautiful duas for speech, inshallah your child will gain a lot from this dua. you should not confine yourself for just 40 days rather make it a habit to read and blow on your child this dua till he is mature enough to do himself. This will broaden his mind, he will become intelligent and inshallah will gain success in studies too.

      • Nabiela says:

        jazakAllah sister. may Allah reward you for you efforts. plz make dua for my son. thankyou so much again

  23. Faizi says:

    Dear Admin,
    i would like to ask i myself feel unlucky in the exams (CSS). i have been doing my best hard work for this exam and i have been appeared twice but unfortunately i could not qualify ..
    i am quite worried for the exams and about my upcoming future
    I am going to appear once again in This 23 Feb 2013
    i would like to ask what should i do to get success in this examination
    Please guide me
    any especial pray for as i am getting hopeless and my moral strength is on weaker side
    Please guide me

    • shadaanalam says:

      dont be tensed and consider yourself unlucky. failures and success are part of each one of us’s life. it might be that Allah has destined something better for you and is just testing your faith and trust in Him. just study hard and pray hard. Always pray to Allah to guide you with regard to your future. so it is best for you to read Ya Haadiyo daily 100 times and Allah will guide you to the career which will bring you success and happiness. The above dua is apt and to the best of my knowledge one of the most beautiful duas for exam success. do read it daily before sitting for studies at least 11 times.

  24. Aqsa says:

    Inshallah I get an A in my maths exam tommorrow I hope I dua comes true

  25. ashfaque says:

  34. lawan says:

    Pls help me I am in trouble.becouse if I am in school I afraid so much. Wether teacher ask me question I know the ques.that he ask me but if I goin to talk is come out wrong.that is why I need your help give me some dua of afraid out in my heart

    • shadaanalam says:

      first of all, dont be tensed and stop worrying brother. unable to speak in front of the teacher or in front of class students is a common problem faced by most of us, including me. I have been similar to you i couldnt have the courage to even read or ask a question to teacher or even answer thus this is something which happens with most of us. Yes you can surely get this fear out of your heart, first thing is to make your mind work in your favour- you have to believe in yourself that you know what you have to say. Make a habit of practising aloud everything at home, when one studies loudly or learns something in high tone one is not just able to learn it better but also one is able to speak in a better way if the same thing is asked in the class. so develop the practise of learning loudly at home. With regard to dua, then have faith brother this is the best dua for you. It will open up your speech, you will be able to speak clearly and without fear. You will not just learn but also able to remember things well. Make it a habit of daily reciting this dua before you sit for studies and blow on yourself. ALso have faith in yourself and in Allah, don;t be tensed. hope you must be feeling much better now, good luck for your studies.

    • shadaanalam says:

      recite the duas which are mentioned in this blog for success in exams, dua for knowledge. have faith in Allah when you recite the same. You can read Surah Qalam and blow on yourself after any of the farz namaaz. Mashallah you are already reading salat hajat so just have patience, Allah will listen to you and your duas soon. Dont loose hope in his mercy. surah qalam is in para 28 of Holy Quran

  38. shadaanalam says:

    Recite the above verses as much as you can, especially before you sit for studies, recite at least 11 times. Inshallah you will get good marks, and get success in whatever career you choose, by Allah’s mercy and grace, Ameen
