O Allah! I ask You for knowledge that is of benefit, a good provision and deeds that will be accepted.

[Surah Qassas; 28:24]

The above du'a was made while Musa (alayhis salam) was traveling to the desert of Madyan, and he had no shelter - nowhere to stay for rest. He made this du'a while resting under the shade of a tree, and consequently the father of the two sisters in the story invited him to stay with them... 

 

رَبِّ اشْرَحْ لِي صَدْرِي وَيَسِّرْ لِي أَمْرِي وَاحْلُلْ عُقْدَةً مِنْ لِسَانِي يَفْقَهُوا قَوْلِيRabb-ishrah ii sadri, wa yassir li 'amri, Wah-lul 'uqdatam-mil-li-saani, Yaf-qahuu qawliiO my Lord! Expand me my breast; Ease my task for me; And remove the impediment from my speech, so they may understand what I say

[Surah Ta-Ha; 20:25-28]

A du'a that Musa (alayhis salam) made when proceeding to the court of Fir'awn (Pharoah) for the arguments (inviting him to Islam) 

 

 اَللَّهُمَّ اَصْلِحْ لِىْ دُنْيَاى الَّتِىَْ فِيْهَا مَعَاشِىْ وَ اَصْلِحْ لِىْ اخِرَتِىَ الَّتِىْ فِيْهَا مَعَادِىْ وَ اجْعَلِْ الْحَيوةَ زِيَادَةً لِّىْ فِىْ كُلِّ خَيْرٍ وَّ اجْعَلِ الْمَوْتَ رَاحَةً لِىْ مِنْ كُلِّ شَرٍّAllahumm-aslih li diniyalladhi huwa ismatu amri, wa aslih li dunyaya-llati fiha ma'ashi, wa aslih li akhirati-llati fiha ma`adi, waj`alil-hayata ziyadatan li fi kulli khair, waj`alil-mauta rahatan li min kulli sharrinO Allah! Set right my faith which is the safeguard of my affairs. And set right for me my worldy affairs wherein is my living. And set right for me my Hereafter on which depends my after-life. And make my life for me (a source) of abundance for every good and make my death a source of comfort for me protecting me against every evil

[Muslim, 35/6565]

[Abu Hurairah (radiAllahu anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) used to say (the above)] 

 

 اللَّهُمَّ اِنِّى اَسْئَلُكَ الْفَوْزَ فِى الْقَضَآءِAllahumma inni as'alukal fauza fil qadaai'O Allah! I ask You for success concerning my destiny
