10 Duas to Teach Your Kids at Home

Following are the 10 dua’s to teach your kids at home.

Importance of dua’s

Dua’s are an essential part of our life. We are Muslims, and we believe in the acceptance of dua’s. In the Quran, we see how the beloved Prophets and Apostles of Allah are supplicated in their lives. They used to seek help from Allah through dua’s. Allah Almighty, in return, answered them and helped them through every thick and thin of life. That’s why Hazrat Muhammad SAW taught his Umamah some important dua’s and prompted his followers to teach them to the kids.

The reason behind our article was many people asked in our last session to compile an article on the best 10 dua’s to teach kids at home. So, please read the article until the end and teach it to your kids.

1) Dua when children wake up

There are thousands of dua’s, and it will be hard for you to teach every dua to your kids. Therefore, you need to start from the daily routine dua’s. The first dua you need to teach your kids is when they wake up, they should recite the following dua;

“Alhamdu lillahi lasi ahyana ba’da amatana wa elahin nushor”.


Praise is Allah Who gives us life after He has caused us to die and to Him is the return.”

2) Dua at the time of sleeping

When your kids go to bed, you need to memorize them the following dua;

“Allahuma besmika amuto wa ahya”.


“O Allah, with Your name, I die and live.”

3) Dua before eating a meal

Usually, we eat a day thrice. So, it would help if you taught your kids the dua before eating the meal. It is an easy dua and can be memorized in a day.

“Bismillahi wa’ala barakillah”.


“In the name of Allah and with the blessings of Allah, I begin (eating).

4) Dua when the children eat something

As discussed above, there is a dua for kids before eating the meal. Similarly, there is also a dua when the children complete eating the meal. The dua is given in the following;

“Alhamdulillah-e-lasi ata’mna wasakana wajalna minal muslimen”.


“All praise belongs to Allah, who fed us and quenched our thirst and made us Muslims.”

5) Dua for children when they enter the washroom

It is the best dua for children to seek refuge from the evil and devil.

“Allahumma enne a’uzu bika minal hubsi wal habayes”.


“O Allah, I seek refuge with you from all evil and evil-doers.”

6) Dua after using the toilet

Like we already shared the dua before entering the bathroom, now we will share the dua when your kids use the toilet.



“(O Allah) I seek forgiveness and pardon from you.”

7) Dua when your kids sneeze

Teach your kids the dua when they sneeze. It is a simple dua and has a magnificent translation.



“All praise is for Allah.”

8) Recite dua when someone sneezes

Along with other dua’s, you need to teach your kids at home that when someone sneezes near you, recite the following dua;



“May Allah have mercy on you.”

9) Dua before drinking water

The simple dua before drinking water is, “Bismillah hir Rehman-nir-Raheem.” So, you should teach your kids this dua at home.


“In the name of Allah, the most beneficent, the most merciful.”

10) Dua when your kids leave house

“Bismillahi tawakkaltu alallahi la hawla wala quwwata illa billah”.


“In the name of Allah, I trust in Allah; there is no might and no power but in Allah.”


By teaching the above dua’s to your kids at home, you can make them good practicing Muslims.
