The best supplication

Reference: Fataawa Noor ‘alad-Darb – Question No.6316, Page 154, Volume 12

Question: What is the best supplication which is recommended to oft-repeat?

Response: The best and all-encompassing supplication is His (Ta’aala) saying:

{Our Lord, give us in this world [that which is] good and in the Hereafter [that which is] good and protect us from the punishment of the Fire}, soorah al-Baqarah, aayah 201

So this is the most encompassing of supplications, because it combines the best of both this world and the Hereafter.

And the Messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) used to supplicate with this a lot, so you should supplicate with this supplication, and likewise with [all the other] legislated supplications – just so as to practice the Sunnah from all aspects.
