These are some of the dua’s to recite for studying:
Dua for studying to boost knowledge
This dua is used to boost your knowledge. You can recite while walking or having free time very useful dua.
رَبِّ زِدۡنِي عِلۡمًا
Rabbi zidni ‘ilma.
Lord! Increase me in knowledge.
Dua for increase only beneficial knowledge
After reciting this dua you are going to be aware of only beneficial knowledge. The knowledge going to benefit you and others.
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ عِلْمٍ لاَ يَنْفَعُ, وَمِنْ دُعَاءٍ لاَ يُسْمَعُ, وَمَنْ قَلْبٍ لاَ يَخْشَعُ, وَمِنْ نَفْسٍ لاَ تَشْبَعُ
Allahumma inni a’uzu bika min ‘ilmin la yanfa’, wa min du’a-in la yusma’, wa min qalbin la yakhsha’, wa min nafsin la tashba’.
O Allah, I seek refuge with You from the knowledge that does not bring benefit, from a supplication that is not heard, from a heart that does not fear (You) and from a soul that never satisfies.
(Sunan Ibn Majah)
Dua for studying remove Anxiety and laziness
This is a very important dua to reduce your laziness. That is the big problem in these days for many students. They become easily lazy or distract by different objects then they should recite this dua for increase focus in study to get help from Allah to remove laziness and worry because of laziness. This way you can help your study to remove your laziness with this powerful dua.
Similarly, students feel anxiety before exams and stress that what is going to happen? What question is going to come in the exam? What I am going to do? For this frustration and fear, I recommend making this dua before exam.
اللَّهُمَّ إنِّي أعُوذُ بكَ مِنَ الهَمِّ والحَزَنِ، والعَجْزِ والكَسَلِ، والجُبْنِ والبُخْلِ، وضَلَعِ الدَّيْنِ، وغَلَبَةِ الرِّجالِ
Allahumma inni a’uzu bika minal-hammi wal-hazani, wal-’ajzi wal-kasal, wal-jubni wal-bukhul, wa-dhola’id-daini, wa-gholabatir-rajaal
O, Allah! I seek refuge with You from worry and grief, and from incapacity and laziness, from cowardice and miserliness, from being heavily in debt and from being overpowered by (other) men.
Dua for seeking guidance in the study
Success is all about achievement in your life by having good knowledge. Make your purpose of the study to seek knowledge and help those who need help from your knowledge. In that way, you get benefits both ways financially and intellectually. That is why I am writing this dua so you can define the purpose of the study.
رَبَّنَا آتِنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ رَحْمَةً وَهَيِّئْ لَنَا مِنْ أَمْرِنَا رَشَدًا
Rabbana atina min ladunka rahmatan wa hayyi’ lana min amrina rasyada.
Our Lord! Grant us mercy from Yourself and guide us rightly through our matters.
(Surah Al-Kahf, 18:10)
Dua for studying tough lessons.
Sometimes a subject you do not like and you find a lesson that would be hard for you to learn then you can do this dua to get help. This dua is definitely going to help you for studying to reduce the hardness of learning new tough lessons.
اللَّهُمَّ لَا سَهْلَ إلاَّ مَا جَعَلْتَهُ سَهْلاً، وأنْتَ تَجْعَلُ الحَزْنَ إذَا شِئْتَ سَهْلاً
Allahumma laa sahla illa ma ja’altahu sahlan, wa anta taj-alul hazna iza syi’ta sahla.
Oh, Allah! Nothing is easy except what you have made easy. If you wish, you can make the difficult easy.
(Sahih Ibn Hibban)
Dua for studying task preparations.
Anytime you start to prepare your lesson to ask safty from shaitan and start your study in the name of Alla who is merciful.

Auzubillahi Minash Shaitan ir Rajeem. Bismillah ir Rahman ir Rahim.
I seek refuge in Allah from the accursed Satan. In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Do not forget to make Dua Before studying or Before Exams
After hard work and waking at night, many students may forget what they have prepared for the exam. This is absolutely normal. That is why I recommend giving dua to help you to get back all your forgotten knowledge.
صَلّىَ اللهُ عَلى مُحَمّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمّد. اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْألُكَ يَا مُذَكِرَ الخَيْرِ وَفَاعِلَهُ وَالآمِرَ بِهِ ذَكِرّنِي مَا اَنّسَانِهِ الشّيطَان
Salla-l-laahu alaa Muhammad wa aal-e Muhammad. Allahumma inni as’aluka yaa mudhakkira-l khayr wa faa’ilahu wa-l-aamimira bihi dhakir-ni maa ansaani-hi-shaytan.
Blessings of Allah be upon Muhammad and his progeny. O God, I ask you, the one who mentions goodness and actualizes it and commands it, remind me of that which the shaytan makes me forget.
Dua to recall forgotten knowledge and increase memory
Make this dua after every Salah.
سُبْحانَ مَنْ لا يَعْتَدي عَلى أهْلِ مَمْلَكَتِهِ سُبْحانَ مَنْ لا يَأخُذُ اَهْلَ الاَْرْضِ بأَلْوانِالْعَذابِ سُبْحانَ الرَّؤوُفِ الرَّحيمِ اَللّـهُمَّاْجَعلْ لي في قَلْبى نُوراً وَبَصَراً وَفَهْماً وَعِلْماً اِنَّكَ عَلى كُلِّ شَي قَديرٌ .
In the name of Allah the most kind the most merciful. Glory be to Him who does not treat the citizens of His kingdom unjustly. Glory be to Him who does not let the torment and pain come suddenly upon mankind. Glory be to the compassionate the merciful. O Allah, fill my heart with true enlightenment, wisdom, understanding, and knowledge. Surely you are able to do all things.
Besides dua’s for studying, you have to work hard. Hard work does not mean that you study 24/7. Hard work means is focus and eliminating all distractions. As a full-time student, you have to take care of your physical fitness and mental fitness. Schedule your time study and playtime play.
However, while you are studying give your full attention only to your study. The best time for study is Fajar time. All successful students study after isha namaz and Fajar time. The big benefit of this time is silenced no one would disturb you and you can concentrate more on your studying than other things.
Moreover, sleeping well take care of your sleep schedule. Sleep is important for maintaining health. Poor sleep may bring irritation and distraction. Take a deep breath and relax take easy do not make your study death and life matter. Do the best you can do after taking care of your health.
