The Powerful Dua for Parents and the Importance of Parents in Our Life

The only kind of love that is truly selfless, unconditional, and forgiving is parent love. For the rest of the world, we must receive love. The love which we have shown a child can not reciprocate our parents.

But it should not deter us from trying, knowing that this can never repair entirely. Some of our highest payouts are to respect them by integrating them into our duas regularly.

It is also necessary for us to understand that we are a kind of sadaqah jariyah for our parents as children (continuing charity). Whenever you remember to exercise sound judgment, behave with good adab, or serve others, our parents earn the blessings for their instillation into us.

That is the mercy of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala. At the end of this article, you would have unveiled some beautiful Qur’an duas that you can recite every Day, asking for a happy family, a parent’s duet for happiness, and long life.


رَّبِّ ارْحَمْهُمَا كَمَا رَبَّيَانِي صَغِيرًا

Rabbi irhamhuma kama rabbayani sagheera

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

This Dua asking for forgiveness is from Surah Nuh Verse 24:

رَبِّ اغۡفِرۡلِىۡ وَلِـوَالِدَىَّ وَلِمَنۡ دَخَلَ بَيۡتِىَ مُؤۡمِنًا وَّلِلۡمُؤۡمِنِيۡنَ وَالۡمُؤۡمِنٰتِؕ وَلَا تَزِدِ الظّٰلِمِيۡنَ اِلَّا تَبَارًا.

Rabbi their lee waliwalidayyawaliman dakhala baytiya mu/minan walilmu/mineena walmu/minatiwala tazidi aththalimeena illatabaran

My Lord, forgive my parents and me, and whoever enters my house a believer and the believing men and believing women. And do not increase the wrongdoers except in destruction.”

This Dua asks for forgiveness for your parents and yourself and the entire Muslim ummah.

رَبَّنَا اغۡفِرۡ لِىۡ وَلـِوَالِدَىَّ وَلِلۡمُؤۡمِنِيۡنَ يَوۡمَ يَقُوۡمُ الۡحِسَابُ

 Rabbana ghfir li wa li wallidayya wa lil Mu’ mineena yawma yaqumul hisaab

Translation: “Our Lord! Forgive my parents and me, and (all) the believers on the Day when the reckoning will establish.”


In Surah Al-Ahqaf Verse 15:

“And We have enjoined upon man, to his parents, good treatment. His mother carried him with hardship and gave birth to him with hardship, and his gestation and weaning [period] are thirty months. [He grows] until, when he reaches maturity and reaches [the age of] forty years, he says,

رَبِّ اَوۡزِعۡنِىۡۤ اَنۡ اَشۡكُرَ نِعۡمَتَكَ الَّتِىۡۤ اَنۡعَمۡتَ عَلَىَّ وَعَلٰى وَالِدَىَّ وَاَنۡ اَعۡمَلَ صَالِحًا تَرۡضٰٮهُ وَاَصۡلِحۡ لِىۡ فِىۡ ذُرِّيَّتِىۡ ؕۚ اِنِّىۡ تُبۡتُ اِلَيۡكَ وَاِنِّىۡ مِنَ الۡمُسۡلِمِيۡنَ‏

RabbiawziAAnee an ashkura niAAmataka allatee anAAamta AAalayya waAAalawalidayya waan aAAmala salihan tardahuwaaslih lee fee thurriyyatee innee tubtuilayka wa-innee mina almuslimeen

The translation or meaning of this Dua:

“My Lord, enable me to be grateful for Your favor which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents and to work the righteousness of which You will approve and make righteous for me my offspring. Indeed, I have repented to You, and indeed, I am of the Muslims.”

This Dua not only asks for forgiveness for your parents but yourself and your children.


It can be very painful to see your loved ones get sick. Most of what you can do is support and tell them that they are not alone.

As stated in Sahih Muslim Hadith # 2202 (The Sunnah of Prophet Muslim Hadith) (did the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad):

Uthman b. The Messenger of Allah’s (“pain” to the Messenger of Allah) was complained by Abu al-As Al-Thaqafi that he felt in his body when he was Muslim. Therefore, Allah’s messengers (place your hand in handling pain in the body and say Bismillah three times and seven times (in Allah’s name)

A’udhu billahi wa qudratihi min sharri ma ajidu wa uhadhiru,

I am looking for refuge from the evil I have with Allah and His power.

In another hadith told by ‘Aa’ishah (Please please Allaah)

When the Messenger of Allah came to a sick person (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) or he was brought to him by a diseased person, he would say:

 “Adhhib al-ba’s Rabb an-naas, wa’ shfi anta al-Shaafi, laa shifaa’a illa shifaa’uka shifaa’an laa yughaadir saqaman”

(Take away the pain, O Lord of humanity, and grant healing, for You are the Healer, and there is no healing but Your healing that leaves no trace of sickness).” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5351, Muslim, 2191.


“Every soul will taste death.”

Surah Imran’s quote is firm. We will all die someday. It’s a reminder. It can be a terrifying thought (and maybe that is why some do not think of it), but it can also be very accessible.

Here is something you can try a mental exercise. That may be the last time you think about all of them when you hang out with friends or families.

That’s, unfortunately, reality.

We would become more thankful for living in this moment if we could momentarily recall our downfall. I also assume that if you don’t behave with that opinion, you can take it as yourself if someone is disrespectful. If you can take a step back and see the bigger picture, you can look at a knee-shaking answer.

Another advantage is that you are living continuously when the inevitable time arrives at a moment; we will be comforted that we did not take it for granted. That we set out from that moment to squeeze all experiences. Don’t get wrong; grief is always hard, but at least remorse that can linger won’t fulfill.

Verses from Quran about Parents:

“Worship Allah and associate nothing with Him, and be kind to parents.”

“Your Lord has ordered you only to worship Him and to be kind to your parents. If one or both of them reaches the age when they are with you, don’t even say a mild reprimand to them and don’t repel them”

“Lower to them out of grace the wing of modesty and say: Oh, Lord, have mercy on them as I was young when they brought me up”
