Regular routines have resumed. Life seems to be once again on a runaway train, which we are struggling to stay onboard.

We start to look back at the moment of pauses Ramadan enabled us to attain, especially the quietness that comes from waking up at predawn, and the inner calmness that comes from standing in late night prayers. There seemed to be some time for self, time for introspection and time for collective daily supplications. In hindsight, we are reminded of the inner blessings gained when we prioritise our prayers and duas.

So, how do we maintain the closeness to our Rabb? How do we hold onto the spiritual connection? The answer is simple: duas. Duas bring about a mindfulness. We remember that Allah is our guide, providing companionable solace when the path becomes too dark. And so, the duas presented here include those shared on our MWN Hub platform in Ramadan; bespoke to the issues MWN helpline support, as well as, a select few favourites from our staff.

Seeing as our feelings are situational dependent, the duas follow a traffic-like system: green for guidance and gratitude; amber for anxiety and apathy and red for refuge from trials and tribulations. Depending on how you are feeling, look to these duas, as your conversation toolkit with the Almighty.

O Allah, bring peace and tranquillity to our hearts, accept our prayers and deeds, and grant us success in this life and the Hereafter, O Most Generous and Kind. Ameen.

Guidance and gratitude

Our Lord! Bestow on us mercy from thyself, and dispose of our affair for us in the right way. (Surah Al-Kahf)

This is by the grace of my Lord! – To test me whether I am grateful or ungrateful! And if any is grateful, truly his gratitude is (a gain) for his own soul; but if any is ungrateful, truly my Lord is free of all needs, supreme in honour! (Surah An-Naml)

O Allah, I seek refuge in you from the punishment of hellfire, from the punishment of the grave, from the trails of life and death, and from the evil of the trail of the false messiah. (Source: al-Bukhari and Muslim)

Think of it like this, a well gardened mind that is regularly watered and tilled will always keep the weeds abate, so the flowers stay in full bloom and the path clear.

When we are consistent in our supplications this will provide us with a righteous path. It will keep our spiritual slipups in check. We will make more of an effort to cleanse our heart; change our ways so that we do not become prisoners of our own burdens.
