Dua For Speech In English
My Lord, expand for me my breast [with assurance] And ease for me my task And untie the knot from my tongue That they may understand my speech.
Many times, we are given a task to do and we become worried about how we are going to fulfill the task, whether it is at home or at work or elsewhere, something that is on our shoulders.
And we wonder, how is this going to happen? So Allah SWT teaches us how to calm ourselves down, how to relax, how to be content while you are fulfilling this beautiful task. And what is the Dua for clear speech?
If you look at Surah Taha, between verses 25 and 28, Allah talks about a huge burden that he placed on the shoulders of Musa, alayhis salaam.
These are amazing verses and we are taught to recite on a daily task for any difficult task including clear speech.
- Make clear for me my chest, means make it easy for me, make me strong, strengthen me.
- Make easy this task for me, means make it easy for me.
- And untie the knot on my tongue so that they understand what I’m saying.
We are taught we can repeat the same du’a whenever we are tasked to do something. Especially when you’re asked to speak to people, when you’re asked to say something, it is very important you hand your affairs to Allah.
You say a short prayer for the sake of Allah so that Allah will help you and you then be calm and relax. Allah will take care of things.
So Musa AS was granted the dua and he was very calm, very relaxed he was able to face the Pharaoh and ultimately succeed.
May Allah grant us success.
What To Do When You Speak In Islam
The Prophet (SAW) said, ‘He who truly believes in Allah and the Last Day should either speak good or keep Silent.’ (Muslim)
Speak clearly in such a way that those who listen to you understand you. Do not talk badly or talk too much. Say only what is good or keep silent.
It is good to keep silent but do not overdo it. This will annoy people around you. Always speak the truth. Think carefully before speaking.
Avoid saying something you might feel sorry for and for which you have to apologize. Breathe before you speak.
It takes nothing more than pausing -breathing -after the person to whom you are speaking has finished. Be a good listener.
Do not simply wait for an opening for your turn to speak. We often complete other people’s sentences, or say things like, ‘yeah, yeah,’ or ‘I know’ very quickly, as if asking them to hurry up so that we can have our turn.
Let others completely finish their thought before you begin yours. Do not speak hurriedly. It is better to speak neither too slowly nor too quickly, neither too loudly nor too softly. Such ways of speaking will irritate the listener.
The best way is the middle way. Look pleasantly at others when talking or listening to them. Keep smiling. It does not cost anything.
Do not make restless movements all the time. Do not giggle unnecessarily when talking to others. Do not make too many gestures or talk and laugh loudly.
Always speak the truth. Remember that whatever you say is recorded by two angels.
Speak in a low voice. Talking very loudly without a need shows foolishness. Allah’s Messenger (SAW) never talked quickly. He talked slowly. People could count his words if they wished.
Many times it happens that when two people are talking, one often begins talking before the other has finished.
This one is saying his thing, that one saying his; and neither in fact hears the other. Well! What is the use of such a conversation?
Always remember that when one speaker is finished, only then should the other speak.
Meaning Of This Dua From Tafseer As Sa’adi
My Lord, fill my heart with courage and steadfastness- so that I may bear with patience any offence in word and deed, and I will not be distressed by that or feel anxious.
For if a person feels distressed and anxious, he will not be fit to call people to guidance.
Allah said to His Prophet Muhammad (SAW):
It is by the mercy of Allah that you deal gently with them. If you had been harsh or hard-hearted, they would have dispersed from around you…Al ‘Imran 3: 159
People may be more receptive to the truth if the caller has a kind attitude, is steadfast and has an easy manner with people.
And make my task easy for me) that is, make easy for me every path I take and every aim I pursue for Your sake, and make bearable for me all the hardships that lie ahead of me.
Part of making his task easy is guiding the caller to handle matters in an appropriate manner and to speak to each person in the way that is appropriate for him, using the approach that will make the message more easily accepted.
And remove the impediment from my speech, so that they will understand what I say.
