Dua for decision guidance

Surah Al-Baqarah, ayah 186 is also known as “Dua for seeking guidance in making a decision.” The ayah reads:

This specific ayah inspires Muslims to seek the almighty Allah for guidance on the right path when making decisions and reassures believers that he is ever-present and aware of their prayers and needs. Muslims often recite this Ayah at times of uncertainty or tough decision-making.

Dua for sustenance

Surah Al-Baqarah, ayah 245 is also known as “Dua for an increase in sustenance.” The ayah reads:

In the belief that Allah will increase it many times beyond, this ayah compels the believers to be generous with their money and to lend it to Him in the form of charity. It serves as a reminder that Allah is the source of all sustenance and prosperity and that He bestows or withholds abundance. When Muslims need to boost their sustenance, they frequently recite this ayah.
