5 Dua when waking up to start your day with gratitude and joy

Dua when waking up from Imam -al-Sadiq (a.s.) has mentioned that Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) used to say this dua when waking up or before bed after reciting Ayatul Kursi.

When you wake up and feel safe and healthy in your body, with food for the day ahead, it’s like the entire world has come together from all its corners just for you.

Abu Dharr recounted: At night, when the Prophet, may peace and blessings be upon him, was about to sleep, he would utter, “In Your name, we experience both life and death.” Upon waking up, the Prophet would express, “We’re grateful to Allah for granting us life after death, and we believe in the eventual Resurrection unto Him.”

Morning rituals in the Sunnah of Prophet (ﷺ)

Refresh your face: Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) When you wake up, it’s a healthy practice to rub your face with your hands thrice to remove the effects of sleep. 

Supplication upon waking: As you wake up, you can recite a supplication above, or you can say these words: “Alhamdu lillahil-lathee ahyana baAAda ma amatana wa-ilayhin-nushoor,” which means, “All praise is for Allah who revived us after causing us to die, and to Him is the resurrection.”

Recite Quranic verses: Prophet used to recite the last ten verses of Surah Al ‘Imran (3:191-200) upon waking up. It’s reported that the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) used to recite these verses after waking up.

Get out of bed right: Put your right foot down first when ready to leave. This action aligns with the Sunnah, and it’s believed to be a blessed way to start your day.

Wash your hands: After sleep, it’s advised to wash your hands three times. The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said one should avoid putting their hands into a water container before washing them thoroughly. sahih Al-Bukhaari and Muslim

Cleanse your nose: Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said blowing your nose three times will help you feel more awake, and it is also believed that it helps to keep away negative influences. Prophet said that Satan may linger in the nostrils during the night [Bulughal Maraam, Book 1, Hadith 42; Saheeh al Bukhari 3295; Saheeh Muslim, Book 2, Hadith 462]

The Prophet (ﷺ) once said that when it’s time to sleep, we should shake our bed a little and then say: “I trust my side to You, O my Lord, and with Your name, I lift it up. If You keep my soul, show it mercy. And if you send it back, then protect it with the same care you have for your good servants.” Sahih al-Bukhari 6320

When we feel like thanking Almighty when we wake up in the middle of the night or the morning, there are many ways to do it, but I will tell you the essential things you should know before thanking Allah. It would help if you said what you felt and used these verses.

What is the powerful dua at night?

What is the dua for morning anxiety?

I have gathered the three most powerful Dua’s to be recited in the morning, which can help alleviate anxiety and provide peace.

  1. Surah Al-Fatiha.
  2. Surah Al-Baqarah.
  3. Surah Adh-Duha.

Morning Gratitude and Supplication:

Every morning make this a habit when you wake up; take a moment to thank Allah for giving you another day. Say “Alhamdulillah” (Praise be to Allah) for everything you have. Then it is recommended to follow the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) when waking up. This sets a positive attitude for your day and helps you start with gratitude.

Regular Prayers (Salah):

Ensure that you do not miss any obligatory Salah five times a day because these Salah are a way to connect with Allah and find peace.

Balanced Meals and Moderation:

Follow the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) regarding eating. Always eat in moderation, filling one-third of your stomach with food, one-third with water, and leaving one-third for empty air. A balanced diet helps the body to stay active and not feel lazy after overeating.

Regular Physical Activity:

Engage in physical activities such as running, swimming, and stretching because our Prophet encouraged us to do physical activities. When we do any form of physical activity, our body releases endorphins, which are regarded as natural mood boosters and reduce anxiety and sadness.

Kindness and Social Connections:

“Be merciful to others, and you will receive mercy. Forgive others and Allah will forgive you.” (Musnad Aḥmad 6541). Treat others with kindness, just as the Prophet did. This practice will strengthen your social connections by spending time with family, friends, and the community.

What Dua is used for waking up for Fajr?

Imam al-Sadiq (peace be upon him) narrated this from Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ). If you find it challenging to get up for night worship, recite the following dua who intend to engage in Namaz-e-Shab. When you recite this Dua Allah SWT will command an angel to wake them up at the exact time you intend to get up.

“O Allah, safeguard me from being deceive by worldly-wise obstructions,
Preserve Your remembrance within me, And shield me from negligence.
I intend to rise for worship at the specific time I have mentioned.”

This Dua is a request from Almighty Allah to request his assistance in waking up for the night prayer. By saying these words sincerely before sleep, that person seeks protection from all the negativity of being deceived. Allah responds to this Dua by appointing an angel to wake them up at their intended time, helping them achieve their intention of praying Namaz-e-Shab.
