Learning Duas for children and Short Authentic, Islamic Duain For Kids is the need of time. Being a Muslim parent, it’s our responsibility to teach our children about Muslims and Islamic duain for kids. Grooming our kids spiritually is as essential as is grooming them worldly.
The way we start teaching our children “A for Apple” and “twinkle twinkle” since they start speaking is ironic because we are never as much worried about teaching them any small surah or the first Kalimah and other necessarary duas for kids.
And sadly, this attitude amplifies generation-wise. If you haven’t taught your child the dua for kids or the basics of Islam, then do not expect him to be religious towards his child in the future.
Teach your Child Duas For Children From Quranic Surahs:
An example is evident, how much concerned are you in teaching Quran to your kid compared to your parents teaching the Quran to you! I remember we (me and my siblings) woke up daily in the morning, and the first thing we did before getting ready for school was a recitation of the Quran, whether a few verses.
In the night, my mother used to revise all of us different short dua for children. But today, I feel I often forget this practice on my kids. Ironically we never remember scolding our child for bad grades on a school test. However busy we are, we make sure our kids have completed their school homework.
Sisters! (and brothers too) It’s your job to teach your kid Islam. If you can not do this by yourself, hire a tutor for Quran and Islamic teaching just as you hire a tutor for your kid’s schooling.
Pay attention to your children. A straightforward and good practice could be making your child memorize little duas for children. There are many short duas of day and night which children can easily remember. Some of the easy Duas for children are below, and if you want your kid to memorize these duas, you can also join our Dua Memorization course.

الْحَمْدُ للهِ الَّذِي أَحْيَانَا بَعْدَ مَا أَمَاتَنَا وَإِلَيْهِ النُّشُورُ

Dua Before Eating:
Reciting duas before and after eating food is one of the etiquettes of eating Prophet Mohammad (s.a.w) practiced and recommended too.
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ وَعَلَى بَرَكَةِ اللَّهِ
“In the name of Allah and with the blessings of Allah I begin (eating)”.
Muslim Dua For kids After Eating:
الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي أَطْعَمَنَا وَسَقَانَا وَجَعَلَنَا مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ
“All praise belongs to Allah, who fed us and quenched our thirst and made us Muslims.”
Dua Before going to the washroom:
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْخُبُثِ \
“O Allah, I seek refuge with you from all evil and evil-doers.”
Dua After using the bathroom:
“(O Allah) I seek forgiveness and pardon from You.”
Or you can also memorize this one:
الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي أَذْهَبَ عَنِّي الْأَذَى وَعَافَانِي
“All Praise be to Allah, who removed the difficulty from me and gave me ease (relief).”
Dua after Sneezing:
When one of you sneezes, he should say:
“All praise is for Allah.”
and his brother or companion should say to him:
“May Allah have mercy on you.”
And he (the one who sneezed) replies to him
يَهْدِيكُمُ اللهُ وَيُصْلِحُ بَالَكُمْ
“May Allah guide you and rectify your condition.”
Dua Before Leaving the House:
بِسْمِ اللهِ ، تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللهِ وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللهِ
“In the name of Allah, I place my trust in Allah, and there is no might nor power except with Allah.”
Dua for Exams and studies:
There are various duas for exams and surveys. The best option is to memorize your child’s surah Alm Nashrah and make him/her recite often. Surah Alm Nashrah and Verse 25-28 of Surah Taha are both best for school-going kids. The ayat from surah taha can also be helpful for children who are nonfluent in speech or have stammering issues.
رَبِّ اشْرَحْ لِي صَدْرِي وَيَسِّرْ لِي أَمْرِي وَاحْلُلْ عُقْدَةً مِّن لِّسَانِي يَفْقَهُوا قَوْلِي
“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
These were a few of primary Duas for children. For more Duas, you can also hire the services of our professional teachers for your kids.
