IslamQA: What should one ask God for?

What should one ask God for?

These are the things I ask God for daily:

  • Guidance
  • Forgiveness
  • His easing and facilitating my doing of good and beneficial things.
  • His putting His blessings (baraka) in my time and in my works.
  • Freedom from need (poverty).
  • His increasing my knowledge.
  • His giving me and my family good in this life, in the next life, and His protection from the Hellfire.
And God knows best.
