Let’s Read Together: Basic Duas for Children

Basic Duas for children book


Basic Duas for Children

Nafees Khan



This isn’t a reading book as such but one I feel will help every Muslim parent bring Islam into their child’s every day life. The remembrance of Allah (swt) should be something that we do every day at all times.

In every action we take.

In everything we say.

What better way to do this then to learn the numerous duas?

This book is a great introduction to the basic sunnah daily duas. What I particularly like about it is that the dua is written in Arabic, then has the English transliteration to help with pronounciation if you can’t read Arabic, and finally has the English explanation for what the dua says if Arabic is not your first language.

Basic Duas for children

The duas in the book are:

  • Dua before sleeping
  • Dua after waking up
  • Dua for morning and evening
  • Dua for entering the toilet
  • Dua on leaving the toilet
  • Dua after Adhan
  • Dua before starting salah
  • Dua al Qunoot
  • Tasbeeh (glorification)
  • Dua upon meeting a muslim
  • Dua before eating
  • Dua after eating
  • Dua when leaving home
  • Dua while entering the home
  • Dua to increase knowledge
  • Dua on boarding a car or other vehicle
  • Dua for wearing new things
  • Dua to thank Allah
  • Dua to thank parents
  • Dua to thank people
  • Istighfar
  • Saiyyidul Istighfar

What is also appealing about the book is that is not simply duas. There are some basic colourful illustrations throughout the book to keep the childs interest and each section of duas has a small poem to introduce it. For example:

‘When we get up in the morning
The first thing that we say
Is to thank Allah Subhana wa Ta’ala
For giving us another day.’

What is great about this book is that it isn’t just for children. I was never taught these duas as a child so I can also learn from this and it would also be ideal for reverts.

A must have collection of duas in every Muslim household.

You can get a kindle version of this book from Amazon:

    Sounds a lot like a dua textbook in most madressahs, but I’m loving the bright illustrations of this book!
