What is the first dua in Quran? Quran dua is the best that a person can supplicate to Allah Almighty with the intention of responding and accepting, and although there are no specific texts for the dua that a person calls upon.

But the best dua that he can supplicate with is what is mentioned in the Holy Qur’an and the honorable Sunnah of the Prophet.

And in our article today, we will learn about the first duas of Quran that were revealed in the Holy Qur’an, and review some of the dua that were mentioned in the Qur’an.

ِِAre duas in the Quran?

The linguistic origin of (dua) is to ask for action. Moreover, the word dua is mentioned in the Qur’an in about ninety places. It came as (name) in forty-eight places, including the Almighty’s saying:

إِنَّ رَبِّي لَسَمِيعُ الدُّعَاءِ

And It came as (verb) in forty-four places, including the Almighty’s saying:

 

وَاللَّهُ يَدْعُو إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ وَالْمَغْفِرَةِ بِإِذْنِهِ ۖ وَيُبَيِّنُ آيَاتِهِ لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَذَكَّرُونَ

The word quran dua in arabic has several meanings, among which we mention the following:

1- dua means (worship), and from it is the Almighty’s saying: 

قُلْ أَنَدْعُو مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ مَا لَا يَنفَعُنَا وَلَا يَضُرُّنَا

That is: Do we worship besides Allah that which does not possess any benefit or harm for us? Among him is His saying, Glory be to Him: 

وَقِيلَ لَهُمْ أَيْنَ مَا كُنتُمْ تَعْبُدُونَ

Meaning: Worship Me and worship Me sincerely, I accept your worship, and I forgive you.

In the Noble Qur’an, the Highest said: 

قَالُوا أَيْنَ مَا كُنتُمْ تَدْعُونَ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ

and it also included His saying, Glory be to Him: 

وَقِيلَ لَهُمْ أَيْنَ مَا كُنتُمْ تَعْبُدُونَ

So this last verse indicates that (dua) comes with the meaning of (worship). And dua in the sense of (worship) is a lot in the Qur’an.

2- Quran dua in the sense of (the name), and from it the Almighty’s saying: 

لَّا تَجْعَلُوا دُعَاءَ الرَّسُولِ بَيْنَكُمْ كَدُعَاءِ بَعْضِكُم بَعْضًا

That is: do not call upon the Messenger as one of you calls one another; Ibn Katheer narrated on the authority of Ibn Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said:

كَانُوا يَقُولُونَ: يَا مُحَمَّدُ، يَا أَبَا الْقَاسِمِ، فَنَهَاهُمُ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ، عَنْ ذَلِكَ، إِعْظَامًا لِنَبِيِّهِ، صَلَوَاتُ اللَّهِ وَسَلَامُهُ عَلَيْهِ قَالَ: فَقَالُوا: يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ، يَا نَبِيَّ اللَّهِ. وَهَكَذَا قَالَ مُجَاهِدٌ، وَسَعِيدُ بْنُ جُبَير.

3- Dua means (seeking help and seeking help), and from it is the Almighty’s saying: 

قُلْ أَرَأَيْتَكُمْ إِنْ أَتَاكُمْ عَذَابُ اللَّهِ أَوْ أَتَتْكُمُ السَّاعَةُ أَغَيْرَ اللَّهِ تَدْعُونَ إِن كُنتُمْ صَادِقِينَ

And from it His saying, Glory be to Him: 

وَإِذَا مَسَّكُمُ الضُّرُّ فِي الْبَحْرِ ضَلَّ مَن تَدْعُونَ إِلَّا إِيَّاهُ ۖ

that is: When you need, you plead to Allah alone, and you seek help from Him who has no help except Him; Among them is the Almighty’s saying: 

يَدْعُو مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ مَا لَا يَضُرُّهُ وَمَا لَا يَنفَعُهُ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ هُوَ الضَّلَالُ الْبَعِيدُ

that is: from idols, he seeks help from them and seeks their help and provides for them, and they neither benefit him nor harm him.

4- dua means (asking and interrogating), including the Almighty’s saying: 

قَالُوا ادْعُ لَنَا رَبَّكَ يُبَيِّن لَّنَا 

meaning: So ask your Lord to show us this cow: What is its description? What color? What is its nature?

5- dua in the sense of (urging to do something), and from it His saying: 

قَالَ رَبِّ السِّجْنُ أَحَبُّ إِلَيَّ مِمَّا يَدْعُونَنِي إِلَيْهِ ۖ

meaning: that I am in prison is dearer to me than what that woman asks of me of vice and indecency and urges me to do it; Among them is the Almighty’s saying also:

وَاللَّهُ يَدْعُو إِلَىٰ دَارِ السَّلَامِ وَيَهْدِي مَن يَشَاءُ إِلَىٰ صِرَاطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ

meaning: He urges His servants to do acts of worship in order to enter Paradise; Likewise, His saying, Glory be to Him: 

وَيَا قَوْمِ مَا لِي أَدْعُوكُمْ إِلَى النَّجَاةِ وَتَدْعُونَنِي إِلَى النَّارِ

that is: I do not urge you to do what will save you from the punishment of Allah, while you urge me to do what will cause me to enter Hell.

 

6- dua means (the call), and from it is the Almighty’s saying: 

وَلَا تُسْمِعُ الصُّمَّ الدُّعَاءَ

What is the first dua in Quran? 

The first Quran dua in Arabic mentioned in the Holy Qur’an is what was mentioned in the opening of the book, Surat Al-Fatihah, with which the Holy Qur’an begins, and this dua was mentioned in the words of Allah Almighty in Surat Al-Fatihah: 

“اهْدِنَا الصِّرَاطَ الْمُسْتَقِيمَ”

The meaning of this verse is O Allah, guide us,  and show us the right path. Guidance is what is associated with what is right, and its opposite is misguidance, and the word path does not come without its synonym.

This is the “straight path”, which is the straight path that has no crookedness in it, and it is the path that the believer takes to reach the pleasure of Allah Almighty and to reach heaven.

How do I start my dua? 

There is the etiquette for quran dua, which a Muslim must observe before starting to supplicate:

1- Wudu and facing the qiblah: It is desirable for the servant before he begins dua and conversing with Allah Almighty, to perform ablution and face the qiblah.

2- Beginning with praising and praising Allah: One of the etiquettes of duas of quran so that a Muslim’s dua is closer to being answered and obtains the greatest reward and benefit from it is that.

The dua begins with praising dua the Highest and praising Him, and for that he chooses for that the best of what he improves from the words that befit dua.

The Majestic of His Majesty – and he chooses the noblest of attributes. And honor her, as he addresses the King of Kings, and concludes his dua with praise and praise.

3- Praying for the Prophet: Praying for the Prophet is one of the etiquettes that the supplicant should observe when he initiates the dua.

Because praying for the Prophet makes the dua more likely to be accepted, and the servant obtains the reward of praying for the Prophet, as the Messenger of Allah – may Allah prayers and peace be upon him – said: 

من صلَّى عليَّ صلاةً واحدةً؛ صلَّى اللهُ عليه عشرَ صلواتٍ، وحطَّ عنه بها عشرَ سيئاتٍ، ورفعَه بها عشرَ درجاتٍ

4- Raising the hands during dua: The raising of the hands during dua is a slogan of humility and submission to Allah Almighty, and the more the need of the supplicant increases.

He raises his hands more, so the raising of the hands in the rain is more due to the severity of the Muslims’ need for rain, and the evidence that raising the hands from the etiquette of dua is the saying of Anas bin Malik may Allah be pleased with him:

رَأَيْتُ رَسولَ اللهِ -صَلَّى اللهُ عليه وسلَّمَ- يَرْفَعُ يَدَيْهِ في الدُّعَاءِ، حتَّى يُرَى بَيَاضُ إبْطَيْهِ

5- Repentance and acknowledgment of guilt: Repentance and acknowledgment of guilt during dua are among the etiquette of duas of quran and among the reasons for its acceptance – Allah willing.

And this is the character of the prophets, and what the Messenger of Allah taught to his companions and his nation after him.

6- Persistence in dua: Persistence in language means the desire for something, its necessity, and perseverance in it, and perseverance in dua means multiplying and repeating it.

And repeating Allah attributes and supplicating Him by His name, resorting to Him, and acknowledging His divinity and lordship.

7- Not rushing to answer: Not rushing to answer is one of the important things for the supplicant, as he continues his dua without despair or despair.

So he is certain that continuing to supplicate is good for him, and that delaying the answer to his supplication is also good for him, so he reaps the reward for that, but if he hastens and gets bored And leaves the supplication.

Because this could be a reason for not accepting his supplication and its answer. In the authentic hadith narrated by Abu Hurairah – may Allah be pleased with him – on the authority of the Messenger of Allah – may Allah prayers and peace be upon him:

يُسْتَجابُ لأحَدِكُمْ ما لَمْ يَعْجَلْ، يقولُ: دَعَوْتُ فَلَمْ يُسْتَجَبْ لِي

8- Avoiding affectation in formulating dua: What should be avoided during duas of quran is an affectation in formulating it, choosing ornate words that have one rhyme and deliberately doing that. 

Saj’ – which is rhymed words without taking into account weight – is one of the things that are hated in supplication that the Messenger of Allah – may Allah prayers and peace be upon him – did not do. 

Peace be upon him – nor his companions, and it has been proven on the authority of Ibn Abbas – may Allah be pleased with them – that he said:

فَانْظُرِ السَّجْعَ مِنَ الدُّعَاءِ فَاجْتَنِبْهُ؛ فإنِّي عَهِدْتُ رَسولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عليه وسلَّمَ وأَصْحَابَهُ لا يَفْعَلُونَ إلَّا ذلكَ”، “يَعْنِي لا يَفْعَلُونَ إلَّا ذلكَ الِاجْتِنَابَ.

9- Lowering the voice in dua: Lowering the voice in duas of quran between loudly and quietly is one of the etiquettes of supplication that is indicated by the verses of the Holy Qur’an, including the Almighty, ’s saying:

10- Devotion to Allah Almighty, and the question of Allah alone.

11-  Dua in adversity and prosperity.

12- Do not pray for oneself, one’s money, one’s child, or one’s family.

13- Return grievances to its people. 

14- The supplicant should begin with himself if he wants to supplicate for others.

15- To plead to Allah with His beautiful names and lofty attributes, or with a good deed that he has done.

16- Not to call for sin or sever ties of kinship.
