The BEST Dua For Good Luck

In Islam the concept of "luck" is not the same as it is in other cultures around the world. As Muslims we do not believe in the idea of "luck" as we believe that everything that happens is predestined and controlled by the will of Allah.

As such there is no luck or chance that is involved when something occurs. Instead of trying to will good luck into existence, we can ask God for help, guidance and ultimately His blessings. Here are some powerful duas that involve an ask to our Lord.

The best dua for good luck ✨

رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

Transliteration: Rabbana atina fid-dunya hasanatan wa fil 'akhirati hasanatan waqina 'adhaban-nar.

Translation: "Our Lord, give us in this world [that which is] good and in the Hereafter [that which is] good and protect us from the punishment of the Fire."

In this powerful verse from the Holy Quran in Surah Al Baqarah we ask Allah for everything good and to steer us away from anything which will land us in the Hell Fire. This is surely the best dua for getting anything which is good for you as a Muslim.

3. Dua for guidance

اهْدِنَا الصِّرَاطَ الْمُسْتَقِيمَ

Transliteration: Ihdinas-siratal-mustaqim.

Translation: "Guide us on the Straight Path."

This dua is from Surah Al-Fatiha, the prayer we perform in every Salah, every day. In this we ask Allah to guide us on the straight path of those who believe and later in the Surah, we ask Allah to not be amongst those who are led astray. In this we understand that we are nothing, as humans, without God.

رَبِّ إِنِّي لِمَا أَنزَلْتَ إِلَيَّ مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَقِيرٌ

Translation: "My Lord, indeed I am, for whatever good You would send down to me, in need."

Narrated in the Quran, this supplication was made by Prophet Musa (Moses) when he arrived in the city of Madyan. At his time of need, he turned to Allah and realised his own powerlessness, and asked his Lord to send him down that which was good.
