Assalamualaikum , is there any dua that can help me to do good in my studies ?
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.
It is not sufficient to simply make du’aa to do well in one’s studies. One must strive and study to achieve good grades and heights. Along with that, one should seek assistance and barakah from Allaah Ta’aala. One should also send abundant salutations upon Nabi ﷺ. The following du’aas may be considered,
رَبِّ ٱشْرَحْ لِى صَدْرِى وَيَسِّرْ لِىٓ أَمْرِى وَٱحْلُلْ عُقْدَةًۭ مِّن لِّسَانِى يَفْقَهُوا۟ قَوْلِى
My Lord! Uplift my heart for me, make my task easy for me and remove the impediment from my tongue so people may understand my speech. [Surah Taha 25-28]
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ عِلْمًا نَافِعًا، وَرِزْقًا طَيِّبًا، وَعَمَلاً مُتَقَبَّلاً
O Allaah! I ask You for beneficial knowledge, goodly provision and acceptable deeds. [Ibn Majah 925]
اللَّهُمَّ انْفَعْنِي بِمَا عَلَّمْتَنِي، وَعَلِّمْنِي مَا يَنْفَعُنِي، وَارْزُقْنِي عِلْمًا تَنْفَعُنِي بِهِ
O Allaah! Make beneficial for me what You have taught me. Teach me that which will be useful to me and grant me such knowledge that will You will benefit me with. [Haakim 1879]
اللَّهُمَّ لا سَهْلَ إِلاَّ ما جَعَلْتَهُ سَهْلاً، وأنْتَ تَجْعَلُ الحَزْنَ إذَا شئت سهلا
O Allaah! Nothing is easy except what you have made easy. If you wish, you can make the difficult easy. [Ibn Hibban 974]
And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
