Duas for Daily Life

There are duas for all the routine acts that we do daily. ALLAH swt has set a standard for us which differs muslims from non muslims. This difference is based on the fact that muslims do not only worship ALLAH but remember Him in everything they do. For this, there are some prayers for every activity which we do which does not only protect us from evil but also ensures blessing of ALLAH in that act.

For example, before doing any act like eating , drinking, sitting standing, holding something, placing something etc we should recite Bismillah, which means “I start with the name of ALLAH the most gracious the most merciful”. It is said that when Bismillah was reveled on Muhammad s.a.w.w. satan was beaten with rocks and stones. This shows that the blessings of this verse are huge. And when a person recites ALLAH’s name before he starts anything, he ensures that his work will be free of satanic intentions .

Similarly, for every act a dua is recited which does not only protect us from shaitan but also earns us reward. Below is given some of those important duas which we all must memories and recite.

Alllahuma bismika amuutu wa ahyaa.

Du'a when leaving home:

Du'a when reaching at home:

These were those few duas, which are easy to remember and should be recited before or after the particular act.

The beauty of islam is hidden and revealed both. Its beauty is hidden in its morals and values of life and its beauty if revealed when the followers of islam become practicing muslims.
