O Allah, O Ya Hamid, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon Your slave and beloved, our Master Muhammad, his family and companions. By him, raise me to the stations of those who praise You constantly, those who have truly realised the meaning of praising You. By him, allow me to live a praiseworthy life and make me a praiseworthy slave in both abodes.

Prophet's prayer for Ibn Abbas
O son, today we learned this du'a from watching telly - a simple but important du'a. It's a well known du'a to many people but I wish to record it here for you. And I thank Allah shukran lillah for He has made it easy to memorize so many meaningful du'a ever since I re-embraced Islam. Alhamdulillah indeed.
According to the Ustaz in the tv program, it's a du'a Prophet Muhammad s.a.w had recited for Ibn Abbas so he could master the Qur'an with much ease and excellence.
If you were to recite it for yourself say it this way:
Allahumma faqihna fiddin
wa ‘allimna ta'aweel
If you wish to recite it for someone else say: Allahumma faqihhu fiddin wa ‘allimhu ta'aweel
Apparently there is an extended version of this du'a but we present it exactly as we've heard it InshaAllah. Rabbi zidni 'ilma.
