Duas for Exams - Al Quran Classes

Whether you are student of 8th grade in a school or a post graduate student in university, Exams are always a night mare. No matter what age group you belong to, exams have their own conventional fear and stress. Some people take exams so seriously that they tend to have exam fever. And that’s not a joke, I my self experienced grumbles in my stomach before my exam ( particularly mathematics). So here are few duas for exams . Reciting these duas in exams can help you release nervousness  and perform better in exam. This does not means that you should stop preparation for exams, and count only on these duas for a good grade in exams.

One of my teachers used to say ,” There are two crucial ingredients of success in any task of life, Effort and will of ALLAH Almighty, and both are equally important. Don’t ever think you can succeed on basis of hard work and effort only, you will always be needing support of ALLAH. And If you think mere duas would make you succeed , without any effort or hard ship bore by you, you are wrong again.”

suppliction for exams

So in case of exams and tests, effort to be done is your job. As far as is problem of getting support of ALLAH, here are some duas for this purpose :

For suppressing anxiety:

we often experience anxiety , stress and depression in exams. This anxiety can effect your performance in exams badly, so its better to recite a few duas for it :

It was reported from Anas (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to say, when something upset him:

“Yaa Hayyu yaa Qayyoom, bi Rahmatika astagheeth (O Ever-Living One, O Everlasting One, by Your mercy I seek help).”

Allahumma inni a’oodhoo bika minal-hammi walhuzni, wal-’ajzi wal-kasali wal-bukhli wal-jubni, wa dal’id-dayni wa ghalabatir- rajaal

O Allah! I seek refuge in You from anxiety and sorrow, weakness and laziness, miserliness and cowardice, the burden of debts and from being oppressed by men.

For success in exams :

Reciting verse 62 of surah Al-Anfaal is recommended for purpose of attaining good grades.

dua for sucess in exams

“But if they intend to deceive you – then sufficient for you is Allah . It is He who supported you with His help and with the believers” [8:62]

To remember forgotten things:

The following dua’a was taught by the Holy Prophet (S.A.) to Ali (A.S.), to be recited after every obligatory Salaat, for developing a flawless memory. You can make it a habit or at least increase recitation of this dua for exams time period :

سُبْحانَ مَنْ لا يَعْتَدي عَلى أهْلِ مَمْلَكَتِهِ سُبْحانَ مَنْ لا يَأخُذُ اَهْلَ الاَْرْضِ بأَلْوانِ الْعَذابِ سُبْحانَ الرَّؤوُفِ الرَّحيمِ اَللّـهُمَّ اْجَعلْ لي في قَلْبى نُوراً وَبَصَراً وَفَهْماً وَعِلْماً اِنَّكَ عَلى كُلِّ شَي قَديرٌ .

Glory be to Him who does not treat the citizens of His Kingdom unjustly and harshly, Glory be to Him who does not let torment and pain come suddenly upon mankind, Glory be to the Compassionate, the Merciful. O Allah fill my heart and mind with true enlightenment, discerning intelligence, quick understanding and knowledge, Verily Thou art able to do all things.

For good expressiveness in exams/ viva :

Prophet Musa had a problem of non fluent speech, This is the supplication of Prophet MUSA (peace be upon him)in surah taha, which he did to get compassion of ALLAH subhana hu wa tala :

dua for exams”O my Lord ! open my chest for me and make my task easy for me and make loose the knot from my tongue so that they understand my speech” surah Taaha verse 25-28

Out of all duas for exams, this one is the one i recite more often, as its not only for exams, it helps to improve your expressiveness both written and verbal. So it can serve to be a multi purpose supplication , use it before delivering lectures and speeches, before vivas, interviews or at any place where you think you need it.

For maintaining concentration :

following can be one of the best duas for exams, as most of us experience loss of concentration while preparing for exams or while attempting exam paper.

صلى الله على محمد وال محمد اللهم اني أسألك يا مدخر الخير وفاعله والآمر به ذكرني ما انسانيه الشيطان

“Salla-l-laahu alaa Muhammad wa aal-e Muhammad. Allahumma inni as’aluka yaa mudhakkira-l khayr wa faa’ilahu wa-l-aamimira bihi dhakir-ni maa ansaani-hi-shaytan.”

“Blessings of Allah be upon Muhammad and his progeny. O Allah, I ask you, the one who mentions goodness and actualizes it and commands it, remind me of that which the shaytan makes me forget.”

    wa alikum salam.
    why donot you give a try to “salah tul haaja” . its simple, you have to offer 2 rakaah,and then read the mentioned dua-e-hajat .
    and one more thing , specific words of dua may matter, but what actually counts is your longing for a dua, how sincerely you have made it ! it doesn’t matter what language you make dua in :) add emotions and feelings to your dua, what ever the subject may be :)
    keep visiting our blog.
    JAZKALLAH.
