بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم


When the last and final messenger to mankind, Muhammad saws, was sent he was sent with the Qur’an and the sunnah alongside it. We the Muslims who follow the sunnah try and do everything that we can by imitating the Messenger saws, Islam is afterall a complete way of life.

Supplicating to Allah is of the best things a Mulim can do, but there are certain supplications that should be used in certain situations to get the most out of that particular situation, as was the pracitce of rasulAllah saws, and those closest to him.

This list which you can print out and place in places as a reminder (Like on the inside of the front door, so as to remember to say it as you leave the house) that will come in very handy, as you and your family strive to memorize these supplications.

I have also inserted a latinised verion of the words, for those not yet able to read Arabic, the transliteration helps along the way, in sha Allah.
