O Allah! It is Your mercy that I hope for, so do not leave me in charge of my affairs even for a blink of an eye and rectify for me all of my affairs. None has the right to be worshipped except YOU.
a.There is also another dua, to ask Allah to bless your time:
Allahumma barikli fi wakti
Inshallah make dua with sincere heart and Allah will help you.
whenever doing dua read this kalima"la ilaha inta subhanaka inni kuntu minaz zalimeen" .It is stated that dua done after this kalima is always accepted..(but its not necessary coz Allah has his own hikmat (wisdom) behind everything so if our duas are not accepted we shud not b ungrateful instead thank Alllah in every state).
P.S- wherever it comes 'a u read ع .
