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.

Correct me if I am wrong, replace faqihna with:
Faqihhu - for one's son
Faqihha - for one's daughter


  1.  Jazak Allahu Khayr (جزاك اللهُ خيراً)

  2. allahumma faqihha fiddin wa 'allimhu ta'aweel


  3. اَللَّهُمَّ فَقِّهُّ فِي الدِّيْنِ وَعَلِّمْهُ التَّأْوِيْلَ

    (Allahumma faqqihhu fiddin wa a’llimhuttakwil)

  4. Allahumma faqqihhu fiddeen wa’allimhu taءweel
