Dua from Qur'an
It is narrated by Abdullah bin Obi owfaa RA that the Messenger of Allah said "Whoever has a need from Allah, or in relation to man, he should perform wudu in a complete and beautiful way, then offer 2 rakaahs of salah. He should then praise Allah and send Salawaat (durood) upon Nabi
sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, and then say:
"Laa ilaaha illallaahul haleemul kareem-subhaanallahi rabbil arshil azeem-wal hamdulilaahi rabbil aalameen -as aluka moojibaati rahmatik-wa azaaima maghfiratik-wal ghaneemata min kulli birr- was salaamati min kulli
ithm- laa tada' lanaa dhamban illaa ghafartah-walaa hamman illaa farrajtah-walaa haajatan hiya laka ridan illaa qadaytahaa -yaa arhamar rawhimeen" (Ibne Maajah-Tirmizi)
We learn from the Quraan and Sunnah that we should engage in Salaah for all our needs. The best time of offering optional prayers is in the last portion of the night, when the entire creation is in sleep and in a state
of neglect, this is a great time to earn the help and pleasure of Allah.
If one is unable to do this, he/she may offer Salaah at any other time,(aside from the makrooh times)
You can also recite Rabbi Zidni Ilma many times everyday.
And Allah knows best.
