Not all that glitters is gold. Sometimes it’s just a shiny distraction to push us away from our purpose of striving for the aakhirah. How can we be enabled to achieve the truth? How do we stay strong to learn it and practice it? We have to carry on the conversation with Allah and make du’aa AND we need to know what to ask for.

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ الثَّبَاتَ فِي الْأَمْرِ، وَالْعَزِيمَةَ عَلَى الرُّشْدِ، وَأَسْأَلُكَ مُوجِبَاتِ رَحْمَتِكَ، وَعَزَائِمَ مَغْفِرَتِكَ، وَأَسْأَلُكَ شُكْرَ نِعْمَتِكَ، وَحُسْنَ عِبَادَتِكَ، وَأَسْأَلُكَ قَلْبَاً سَلِيمَاً، وَلِسَانَاً صَادِقَاً، وَأَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ خَيْرِ مَا تَعْلَمُ، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا تَعْلَمُ، وَأَسْتَغْفِرُكَ لِمَا تَعْلَمُ، إِنَّكَ أنْتَ عَلاَّمُ الْغُيُوبِ
Allaahumma innee as-aluka ath-Thabata fil Amr, wal azeemata alar-Rushd, wa as-aluka Moojibati Rahmatika wa Azaaima Maghfiratika, wa as-aluka Shukra Ni’matik, wa husna ibadaatik, wa as-aluka Qalban Saleeema wa Lisaanan Saadiqa, wa as-Aluka min khairi ma Ta’lamu, wa Audhubika min Sharri ma Ta’lamu, wa astaghfiruka limaa Ta’lamu, Innaka Anta Allaamul- Ghuyoob.
O Allaah verily I ask of You for strength of perseverance of obedience on the Deen, and determination in practicing of the Deen and goodness. And I ask of You for that which obligates Your mercy and resolutions for Your forgiveness. And I ask of You for the capability to be thankful for Your blessings and to worship you in a correct and good way. And I ask of You for a heart which is purified in belief and free from desires and a truthful tongue. And ask of You for the best of what You know, and I seek refuge with You from the evil of what You know and I seek forgiveness for that which You know. Indeed You are the One who knows the unseen.
