Explanation Of The Dua
O Allah! Increase us means increase us in Your blessings, good and rewards. Give us best from both worlds (this life and Hereafter) and increase us beneficial knowledge. This is the sahih way of asking Allah for increase from His vast blessings.
And do not decrease us means do not take away Your blessings from us that you have given us.
Honour us that is in your blessed [religious and] worldly gifts, and among them is fulfilling our needs in this world. One of the greatest honor is the piety (Taqwa) of Allah and highest rank in Jannah.
Do not disgrace us that is, do not humiliate us by making the infidels and enemies to rule over us because of our sins and shortcomings [and do not humiliate us by rejecting our supplications].
Give us [from Your Gifts] and do not deprive us, means and give us what we asked and from the good of what we did not ask You. Do not prevent us from Your goodness and grace, and do not make us among the deprived.
Make us satisfied means allow us to be pleased with whatever You have decreed for us or upon us by giving us patience and contentment in everything that comes from You until we realize Your satisfaction.
Be satisfied with us means be pleased with us. Rida is the greatest and most desirable that the servant hopes for from Allah in this world and the hereafter.
