 Prophets’ supplications in the Quran


Prophets’ supplications in the Quran
“Say (O Muhammad, unto the disbelievers): My Lord would not concern Himself with you but for your prayer. But now you have denied (the Truth), therefore there will be judgment.” (Surah Furqan, 77)
“And do thou (O Muhammad) remember thy Lord within thyself humbly and with awe, below thy breath, at morn and evening. And be not thou of the neglectful.” (Surah Araf, 205)
Prophets, who were sent as a guide to people in all aspects, regard supplications as devotion to Allah, which cannot be forsaken in any period of their lives. When the Quran mentions the anecdotes of the prophets’ lives, supplications of the prophets are also mentioned. Supplications of some prophets that are mentioned in the Quran:

Prophet Adam’s supplication:

Adam (pbuh) and Eve shed many tears because of their mistakes. They begged Allah by saying:

“They said: Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves. If thou forgive us not and have not mercy on us, surely we are of the lost!” (Surah Araf, 23)

Prophet Noah’s supplication:

Noah (pbuh), when only a few people obeyed him after a long period of his prophethood, implored Allah by saying:

“So he cried unto his Lord, saying: I am vanquished, so give help.”
(Surah Qamar, 10)
After Prophet Noah boarded the ship with his followers, Allah ordered him to make the following supplication:

“And when thou art on board the ship, thou and whose is with thee, then say: Praise be to Allah Who hath saved us from the wrongdoing folk! And say: My Lord! Cause me to land at a blessed landing-place, for Thou art best of all who bring to land.” (Surah Muminun, 28-29)

Prophet Abraham’s Supplication:

“My Lord! Vouchsafe me wisdom and unite me to the righteous. And give unto me a good report in later (generation)s. And place me among the inheritors of the Garden of Delight, And forgive my father. Lo! he is of those who err. And abase me not on the day when they (people) are raised, The day when wealth and sons avail not (any man) Save him who bringeth unto Allah a whole heart.”
(Surah Shuara, 83-89)

Prophet Ayyub’s (Job) supplication:

Prophet Ayyub who is known as the hero of patience, was so patient against all tribulations that he did not complain to Allah. However, when the worms reached his heart and his tongue which were the location of dhikr, he exclaimed by saying:

“And Job, when he cried unto his Lord, (saying): Lo! adversity afflicteth me, and Thou art Most Merciful of all who show mercy.” (Surah Anbiya, 83)

Prophet Yusuf’s (Joseph) (pbuh) supplication

When Yusuf (pbuh) had to choose between going to prison or committing the sinful act Zulaykha proposed, he said:

“He said: O my Lord! Prison is more dear than that unto which they urge me, and if Thou fend not off their wiles from me I shall incline unto them and become of the foolish.”
(Surah Yusuf, 33)
After lots of tribulations, when Prophet Yusuf had had all the possible happiness in this world, he did not want the happiness of this world and asked for the true happiness of the hereafter with this prayer:

“O my Lord! Thou hast given me (a blessing) of the sovereignty and hast taught me (an ilm) of the interpretation of events - Creator of the heavens and the earth! Thou art my Protecting Friend in the world and the Hereafter. Make me to die submissive (unto Thee), and join me to the righteous.”
(Surah Yusuf, 101)

Prophet Moses’ supplication:

When Allah ordered Moses:
“Go thou unto Pharaoh! Lo! he hath transgressed (the bounds).” (Surah Ta-Ha, 24) he pleaded Allah with these words:

“(Moses) said: My Lord! relieve my mind And ease my task for me; And loose a knot from my tongue, That they may understand my saying. Appoint for me a henchman from my folk, Aaron, my brother. Confirm my strength with him And let him share my task, That we may glorify Thee much And much remember Thee. Lo! Thou art ever Seeing us.” (Surah Ta-Ha, 25-35)

Prophet Solomon’s supplication:

“He said: My Lord! Forgive me and bestow on me sovereignty such as shall not belong to any after me. Lo! Thou art the Bestower.” (Surah Sad, 35)

“My Lord, arouse me to be thankful for Thy favour wherewith Thou hast favoured me and my parents, and to do good that shall be pleasing unto Thee, and include me in (the number of) Thy righteous slaves.” (Surah Naml, 19)

Prophet Jonah’s supplication:

When Jonah was in darkness in the stomach of the dolphin, he pleaded to Allah:

“There is no God save Thee. Be Thou glorified! Lo! I have been a wrong-doer.” (Surah Anbiya, 87)

Prophet Zechariah’s supplication:

Zechariah (pbuh) was worried that he would not have an heir and:

“Saying: My Lord! Lo! the bones of me wax feeble and my head is shining with grey hair, and I have never been unblest in prayer to Thee, my Lord. Lo! I fear my kinsfolk after me, since my wife is barren. Oh, give me from Thy presence a successor Who shall inherit of me and inherit (also) of the house of Jacob. And make him, my Lord, acceptable (unto Thee).” (Surah Maryam, 4-6)

Prophet Jesus’ supplication:

Disciples of Jesus (pbuh) asked him to bring down a meal from heaven so that their hearts would be satisfied. So he prayed:

“Jesus, son of Mary, said: O Allah, Lord of us! Send down for us a table spread with food from heaven, that it may be a feast for us, for the first of us and for the last of us, and a sign from Thee. Give us sustenance, for Thou art the Best of Sustainers.”
(Surah Maeda, 114)

Prophet Muhammad’s (pbuh) supplication:

Many supplications of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) are mentioned in the Quran. Almost all of them start with “qul” meaning “say”.
“Say: O Allah! Owner of Sovereignty! Thou givest sovereignty unto whom Thou wilt, and Thou withdrawest sovereignty from whom Thou wilt. Thou exaltest whom Thou wilt, and Thou abasest whom Thou wilt. In Thy hand is the good. Lo! Thou art Able to do all things. Thou causest the night to pass into the day, and Thou causest the day to pass into the night. And Thou bringest forth the living from the dead, and Thou bringest forth the dead from the living. And Thou givest sustenance to whom Thou choosest, without stint." (Surah Al-i-Imran, 26-27)

“And (O Muhammad) say: My Lord! Forgive and have mercy, for Thou art Best of all who show mercy.”
(Surah Muminun,118)
Oh Allah! When a man knocks on the door of a palace and the door does not open, he knocks on it again by imitating the manner of another man accepted at the palace. Thus: So do we, Your miserable servants knock on the door of Your house of mercy with the voice and supplications of Your dear prophets. Kaynak: http://askaquestionto.us - Prophets’ supplications in the Quran
With Your mercy, open that door for us, just like you opened it for them! Amin!
