Daily Duas (Supplications)
Allah sent to mankind His messengers (Prophets) at different times with his books from Taurat, Injeel, Zaboor, Scrolls of Abraham, and the Qur’an. The Qur’an is the final revelation sent by Allah to all Mankind and no book will ever be sent after it. Allah’s messengers’ faiths were tested through calamities and countless hardships. Be it Adam, Abraham, Moses, Yunus, David, and Mohammad (Peace be upon him). They all recited Duas during their trying times. What better Duas (supplications) than those recited by the Prophets for us to learn and emulate.
Khamsa Salawaat has accumulated daily Duas (supplications) from the Qu’ran and hadiths to guide us in our daily lives.
