مُقِيمَ الصَّلَاةِ

establisher of prayer

one who keeps up the prayer

one who performs As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat)


This is a very good du’a that has been said by Prophet Ibraheem. Allah mentioned it in Quran:

رَبِّ اجْعَلْنِي مُقِيمَ الصَّلَاةِ وَمِن ذُرِّيَّتِي ۚ رَبَّنَا وَتَقَبَّلْ دُعَاءِ

(Surah Ibraheem: 40)

 

The following are the translations from various Quran Translation Books:
  • My Lord, make me an establisher of prayer, and [many] from my descendants. Our Lord, and accept my supplication. (Sahih International)
  • “O my Lord! Make me one who performs As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and (also) from my offspring, our Lord! And accept my invocation. (Muhsin Khan)
  • My Lord! Make me to establish proper worship, and some of my posterity (also); our Lord! and accept my prayer. (Pickthall)
  • My Lord! make me keep up prayer and from my offspring (too), O our Lord, and accept my prayer: (Shakir)
  • Lord! Make me one who keeps up the prayer and of my offspring (ones who keep up the prayer), our Lord, and graciously accept my invocation. (Dr. Ghali)

 

Memorize it, and use it.
