Supplication of the Completion of the Qur’an


Allah, the Most High, the Most Great, has spoken the truth, His noble Messenger has spoken the truth, and we are witnesses to that. Our Lord! Accept from us, for verily you are the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing.

Allah! Grant us with every harf [letter] of the Qur’an halawah [sweetness]
and with every juz [part] of the Qur’an jazaa [reward].

Allah! Grant us with (the recitation of every) alif, ulfah [love]
with (every) baa, barakah [blessing]
with (every) taa, tawbah [repentance]
with (every) thaa, thawaab [reward]
with (every) jeem, jamaal [beauty]
with (every) haa, hikmah [wisdom]
with (every) khaa, khair [goodness]
with (every) daal, daleel [proof]
with (every) dhaal, dhakaa [intelligence]
with (every) raa, rahmah [mercy]
with (every) zaa, zakaah [purity]
with (every) seen, sa’aadah [happiness]
with (every) sheen, shifaa’ [cure]
with (every) saad, sidq [sincerity]
with (every) daad, diyaa’ [light]
with (every) taa, taraawah [tenderness]
with (every) zaa, zafar [victory]
with (every) ‘ain, ‘ilm [knowledge]
with (every) ghain, ghinaa [wealth]
with (every) faa, falaah [success]
with (every) qaaf, qurbah [nearness]
with (every) kaaf, karamah [nobility]
with (every) laam, lutf [gentleness]
with (every) meem, maw’izah [exhortation]
with (every) nun, noor [light]
with (every) waaw, wuslah [connection]
with (every) haa, hidayah [guidance]
and with (every) yaa, yaqeen [certainty]

Allah! Benefit us through the the great Qur’an, and raise us through the ayat [verses] and the wise Remembrance. Accept from us our recitation and overlook for us that which was present in the recitation of the Qur’an – of mistakes,  forgetfulness or negligent pronunciation in changing words from their (correct) places. Or advancing, delaying, adding or subtracting. Or interpretation (according to) other than what You have revealed. Or doubt, uncertainty or bad reading. Or hurrying while reciting the Qur’an, laziness, hastiness or a swerving tongue. Or stopping without wuquf, idghaam without mudgham, iz-haar without bayaan or madd, tashdeed, hamzah, jazm or i’raab, (according to) other than what You have decreed. Or lack of longing and fear at the (time of reciting) the ayat of mercy and the ayat of punishment. So forgive us, our Lord, and write us as amongst the witnesses.

Allah! Illuminate our hearts with the Qur’an, beautify our character with the Qur’an, save us from the Fire with the Qur’an, and enter us into Paradise with the Qur’an.

Allah! Make the Qur’an for us in this world a qareen [intimate], in the grave a mu’nis [companion], upon the path a nur [light], in Paradise a rafeeq [friend], from the Fire a sitr [shield] and a hijab [barrier], and to good deeds – all of them – a daleel [evidence]. So record for us upon the completion and grant us fulfillment with the heart and tongue, love of goodness; happiness and glad tidings of faith.

And the blessings of Allah, exalted be He, be upon the best of His creation, Muhammad, upon his family and his companions, and much, much peace.

  3. Ayaah says:

    Wa alaikum asalaam warahmatullahi wabarakaatuhu.

    Aameeen to all these beautiful duaas.

    Brother, is this duaa from the Sunnah duaas to be recited upon the completion of the noble Qur’aan/where is it from?

    May Allah bless you and grant you the acceptance of your duaas, and tranquility and ease within the gardens of Firdous, in the company of the beloved of Allah (s.a.w). Aameen.

    Fee Amanillah, with love and duaas, Sister Ayaah.

  4. Ayaah says:

    Please help me with the Arabic to make sure I’ve read it correctly, barakallahu feek. How does one pronounce the last part of line nine, since there’s no markings on the laam and fa, after ‘sahwin’
    (is it ‘lafithiyyin’)?

  5. the middle road says:

    Assalamu alaikum

    “Brother, is this duaa from the Sunnah duaas to be recited upon the completion of the noble Qur’aan/where is it from?”

    No, it’s not a dua that the Prophet sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam made, as far as I”m aware.

    “(is it ‘lafithiyyin’)?”

    Yes, that is correct.

  6. Ayaah says:

    Wa alaikum asalaam warahmatullahi wabarakaatuhu.

    Barakallahu feek for clarifying. May Allah accept our duaas and fill our hearts with a love of al-Qur’aan, and may He bless you and raise you, and allow you to be a means by which others are drawn closer to Him, Aameen.
