A Beautiful Last 10 Days of Ramadan Dua

A woman in a white burqa makes a last 10 days of Ramadan dua in a brightly lit hall with big windows along one wall.

The last 10 days of Ramadan are the most special days of the year, and the best time to recite the last 10 days of Ramadan dua. Allah (SWT) revealed the Holy Qur’an to the Prophet Muhammad (S) on Laylatul Qadr, and while only Allah (SWT) knows which night of the last 10 nights of Ramadan this auspicious event falls upon, it is up to us to treat each of these nights as if it is Laylatul Qadr. 

By acting in this manner, we will be imitating the sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (S), who was known to have spent more time in devotion to Allah (SWT) on the last ten nights than at any other time of the year. The beloved wife of the Prophet (S),  Aisha (ra), narrates:

“Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) used to exert himself in devotion during the last ten nights to a greater extent than at any other time.” -[Muslim]


Dua for the Last 10 Days of Ramadan

The most well known last 10 days of Ramadan dua is dedicated to Laylatul Qadr.


The most beautiful dua for the last 10 days of Ramadan is one we should recite on Laylatul Qadr. As we don’t know which of the last ten nights is Laylatul Qadr, it is best to spend all of these nights reciting this dua. Allah (SWT) loves for us to spend our time in remembrance of Him, especially during a time when our deeds ate multiplied. 


Below is the dua one should recite on Laylatul Qadr:

الْلَّهُمَّ اِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي

Allaahumma innaka ‘afuwwun, tuhibb al-‘afwa, fa’fu ‘anni

“O Allah, You are the Most forgiving, and You love to forgive, so forgive me.”


You can teach your children more about the significance of Laylatul Qadr, and how to take advantage of these last ten nights by reading the above last 10 days of Ramadan dua with them and utilizing these three kid-friendly resources for Laylatul Qadr.

Another Dua for the Last 10 Days of Ramadan

There are many duas we can use as a special dua for the last 10 nights of Ramadan.

In addition to the special dua for Laylatul Qadr, we can recite other beautiful duas throughout Ramadan to gain reward and the pleasure of Allah (SWT). In other words, we are not limited to reciting just one particular dua for the last 10 days of Ramadan; we can recite any dua that holds meaning to us and that we find special!

Below are a few last 10 days of Ramadan dua that you can recite:


  1. Dua for the pleasure of Allah (SWT)

The best dua that anyone can recite any time of the year is one by which we earn the pleasure of Allah (SWT). If we are able to do that, then there can be nothing between us and eternity in Jannah, insha’Allah. The following dua explicitly asks for His pleasure:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ رِضَاكَ وَالجَنَّةَ ، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ سَخَطِكَ وَالنَّارِ 

Allaahumma innee as-aluka ridaaka wal Jannah wa a’audhu’bika min sakhatika wan-naar

O Allah, I ask of Your pleasure and for Paradise, and I seek refuge from Your displeasure and from the Hellfire. 


       2. Dua for guidance 

It is critical for us to ask Allah (SWT) for guidance, as it is guidance that keeps us on the straight path, helps us make good decisions, and keeps us away from sin. 

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ الهُدَى وَ التُّقَى وَ العَفَافَ وَ الغِنَى 

Allāhumma Innī As’aluka al-Hudā Wat-Tuqā Wal-Afāfa Wal-Ghinā

O Allah, I ask You for guidance, piety, abstinence (from the unlawful), modesty, contentment, and sufficiency.

The best source of guidance is none other than the Holy Qur’an, which is the Book of Guidance itself. You can listen to the Noor Kids Digital Ramadan Camp class on the Book of Guidance here.


       3. Dua for direction 

Sometimes it is difficult for us to truly know what decisions are best to make and the paths that are best for us to take. If we recite a dua for direction, Allah (SWT) can help ease our choices and lead us to the right path.


اللَّهُمَّ اهْدِني وسَدِّدْنِي

Allaahummah-dinee wa sadd-dadnee

O Allah! Direct me to the Right Path and make me adhere to the Straight Path.


       4. Dua for knowledge and wisdom 

When making choices in our daily life, we often lack the wisdom and perspective to use what knowledge we have in the best possible way. It is, thus, important we ask Allah (SWT) for wisdom so that we can benefit from our knowledge and gain more such knowledge throughout our lives. 


اللَّهُمَّ انْفَعْنِي بِمَا عَلَّمْتَنِي وَ عَلِّمْنِي مَا يَنْفَعُنِي وَ زِدْنِي عِلْمًا

Allaahum-manfa’nee bimā ‘allamtanee wa ‘allimnee mā yanfa’unee wa zidnee ‘ilmā

O Allah, benefit me with what You have taught me, and teach me that which will benefit me, and increase me in knowledge.


       5. Dua for parents 

Another beautiful dua for the last 10 days of Ramadan is one we can make for our parents. Our parents put in their blood and sweat to raise us to the best of their ability and deserve the utmost respect and devotion from their children. Indeed, they have one of the highest rights over their children. A believer remembers this and prays for Allah to have mercy on them. 


  رَّبِّ ارْحَمْهُمَا كَمَا رَبَّيَانِي صَغِيرًا 

Rabbi irhamhuma kama rabbayani sagheera

My Lord, have mercy upon them (my parents) as they brought me up [when I was] small.


       6. Dua for health 

We need healthy bodies to worship and serve Allah. While nutrition and being active are essential, we must also ask Allah to bless us with health. 


اللّهُـمَّ عافِـني في بَدَنـي ، اللّهُـمَّ عافِـني في سَمْـعي ، اللّهُـمَّ عافِـني في بَصَـري ، لا إلهَ إلاّ أَنْـتَ. اللّهُـمَّ إِنّـي أَعـوذُبِكَ مِنَ الْكُـفر ، وَالفَـقْر ، وَأَعـوذُبِكَ مِنْ عَذابِ القَـبْر ، لا إلهَ إلاّ أَنْـتَ


Allaahumma ‘aafinee fee badanee, Allaahumma ‘aafinee fee sam’ee, Allaahumma ‘aafinee fee basaree, laa ‘ilaaha ‘illaa ‘Anta. Allaahumma ‘innee ‘a’oothu bika minal-kufri, walfaqri, wa ‘a’oothu bika min ‘adhaabil-qabri, laa ‘ilaaha ‘illaa ‘Anta.

O Allah, make me healthy in my body. O Allah, preserve for me my hearing. O Allah, preserve for me my sight. There is none worthy of worship but You. O Allah, I seek refuge in You from disbelief and poverty, and I seek refuge in You from the punishment of the grave. There is none worthy of worship but You.

       7. Dua for times of calamity 

As more and more signs of the day of judgment become apparent and times of calamity draw near, we must always make dua to Allah (SWT) to reward us for our struggles amidst calamity, to give us better times, and to help us through it all. 


إِنَّا لِلهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ ، اللَّهُمَّ أْجُرْنِي فِي مُصِيبَتِي ، وَاخْلُفْ لِي خَيْرًا مِنْهَا 

Innaa lillaahi wa innaa ilayhi raaji‛oon, allaahumma’ jurnee fee muṣeebatee, wakhluf lee khayran minhaa

To Allah we belong and unto Him is our return. O Allah, recompense me for my affliction and replace it for me with something better.

Don’t Stick to Just One Last 10 Days of Ramadan Dua!

A man is hunched over with his hands up in the dark, making a last 10 days of Ramadan dua.

We should recite as many duas as we know, rather than simply one last 10 days of Ramadan dua.

While we have shared a few last 10 days of Ramadan dua ideas, there is no limit to the amount, nor the kinds of duas we can recite to make the best of the month of Ramadan. In this blessed month, our reward is multiplied beyond our imagination, and Allah (SWT) loves for us to spend it in His remembrance. This is particularly important during the last ten nights.
