Bismillah hir Rahmaan nir Raheem. Allah humma Salla ala Muhammad
Here are some interesting duas for anyone who struggles to find words when the time for dua comes especially in Ramadan. These English duas may help you and you can add to them as you wish.
Please note: These duas are NOT duas of the Prophet Muhammad (Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam), but rather duas I have heard people make and some of which I make myself. Use them to inspire yourself to ask more from Allah especially in the month of Ramadan - when duas are readily accepted.
