Dua  for motivation and success 


bismillah hi rahman  nirahim

Before you opt for making  duas, asking Allah for achievement in specific aspects helps to grasp what you’re enquiring for. It helps to be specific in some way.

  • What is success to you?

Success can not be correctly defined, it is variable on the individual and also the core values important to that person. To one person, it may be having boat loads of money in his vision of success and to you that may not be appealing this manner.

Figure out what you would like, whether it’s success in business or it is  success in an exam, or it may be success any specific aspects of your life. Do all the necessary preparation, do not let ignorance be the reason you fail. 

Then next, ask Allah for help and guidance, because without his will nothing can happen. Trust the process your going through, be and be consistent. Even if  the result is you build the next billion-dollar company or pass the exam with flying colours is not in your control. That’s all up to Allah.

All we can do it work hard for the goal and make Dua.

Indeed, Allah SWT will not change the condition of a person until and unless they change what is in themselves.

Dua for success in exam

There are two powerful duas for success in exams and in sha Allah will help you get good results:

 Transliteration: rabbizidnee ilma
Translation: My Lord, increase me in knowledge.

Tips to ace in exams:

Teach What you have learned.

 If you don’t have anyone to teach then, pretend to teach a class. Don’t just read out, use your memory and see whether you can clearly express what you have learned. 

Don’t fool yourself.

 Sometimes, re-reading  or re-doing the same stuff is a way to fool yourself. Just because something is familiar does not mean you have grasped the concept. Re-reading the stuff may make you feel good because you already had read it. Again the best way to check your understanding is to practice new stuffs or see if you can teach what you have learnt.

Know yourself.

 Determine the way you will do the best and how you can best learn and then do more of that. Analyse whether you study better in the morning or at night, in group or alone, with lectures or with the textbook. Try to implement new learning strategies like taking notes, highlighting, question-cards, mind-mapping, and see which is most effective for you.

Lastly, take comfort in knowing that the struggles of this world are just temporary.  At the present moment it may seem like the biggest thing but as time passes, you will  look back and realize how trivial they were. Nothing is going to ruin you, often we blow up things out of proportion. A person suffer more in imagination than in the reality. Getting overwhelmed can hinder your performance.
