A Masnun du’a for examinations?


Kindly inform me if this is a Sunnah/Masnun du’a for examinations?

اللَّهُمَّ لَا سَهْلَ إِلَّا مَا جَعَلْتَهُ سَهْلًا، وَأَنْتَ تَجْعَلُ الْحَزْنَ سَهْلًا إِذَا شِئْتَ



This is indeed a Masnun du’a that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would recite. See here.

However, I have not come across this as a Sunnah du’a to recite when one is writing an examination. Since this du’a is asking Allah Ta’ala for ease, you may recite it before an examination, without deeming it a Sunnah du’a for that purpose.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
