Dua is an essential part of Islamic practice. Muslims are motivated to recite specific duas at different times of the day to seek blessings and protection from Allah. One of the essential duas is to be recited the dua after waking up.
Dua after waking up
الْحَمْدُ للهِ الَّذِي أَحْيَانَا بَعْدَ مَا أَمَاتَنَا وَإِلَيْهِ النُّشُورُ
Transliteration: Alhamdu lillaahil-lathee ahyaanaa ba da maa amaatanaa wa ilayhin-nushoor.
English Translation: Praise is to Allah Who gives us life after He has caused us to die and to Him is the return.
Dua after waking up begins with “Alhamdulillah,” which means “Praise is to Allah.” This phrase expresses gratitude to Allah for allowing us to wake up and start a new day.
In addition to reciting this dua, Muslims are motivated to start their day by remembering Allah by saying “Bismillah” before doing any task, such as eating, drinking, or going to work.
