Dua to Allah Supplication) - The Tool for Asking Allah What You Want
dua and prayers to Allah

Trials, tribulations, and challenges are part of every person’s life. However, to counter that, Allah has provided us a very powerful tool – and that is the tool of dua or asking Allah for help and his mercy when we need it. And we need it all the time.

However, to understand trials and tribulations that we face in our daily lives, we also need to understand the topic of “Sins” and how our sins may be related to our trials and tribulations.

Quran Islam Allah Dua

Dua to Allah forgiveness

The better we understand the ghastly nature of our sins, and the rate at which we accumulate them, along with their undesirable impact on our daily lives and the hereafter, the more it can propel us away from committing sins in general and the more it will drive us to seek forgiveness for our sins – through making the right Duas for us and for others.

Ibn Qayyim provided one of the great descriptions of sins and the impact of sins in this life and after. Here is a very short summary of what he compiled about how our sins impact our lives. [islam-qa.com]

  • Sins deprive a person of provision (rizq) in this life. In Musnad Ahmad it is narrated that Thawbaan said: “The Messenger of Allah (SAWS) said: ‘A man is deprived of provision because of the sins that he commits.’” (Narrated by Ibn Maajah, 4022, classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh Ibn Maajah).
  • A sinful person experiences a sense of alienation (indifference) with his Lord, and between him and other people. One of the salaf had said that he could see the impact of disobedience to Allah (in some aspects of his daily life).
    • A person who commits sins sees that things become difficult for him. In any matter that he turns to, he finds the way blocked or he finds it difficult. By the same token, for the one who fears Allah, things are made easy for him.
    • ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Abbaas said: “Good deeds make the face light, give light to the heart, and bring about ample provision, physical strength and love in people’s hearts. Bad deeds make the face dark, give darkness to the heart, and bring about physical weakness, a lack of provision and hatred in people’s hearts.”
    • Sin breeds sin until it dominates a person and he cannot escape from it. Sin weakens a person’s willpower. It gradually strengthens his will to commit sin and weakens his will to repent until there is no will in his heart to repent at all… so he seeks forgiveness and expresses repentance, but it is merely words on the lips, like the repentance of the liars, whose hearts are still determined to commit sin and persist in it. This is one of the most serious diseases that is likely to lead to doom. He becomes desensitized and no longer find sins abhorrent, so it becomes his habit, and he is not bothered if people see him committing the sin or talk about him.

So, we can easily see that by engaging in sins, we are not only making the prospects of our after life (integral part of Islamic faith) bleak but sins can greatly and actively contribute to the difficulties of our daily lives. Allah says in the Quran:

“Whatever of good reaches you, is from Allah, but whatever of evil befalls you, is from yourself…” [Surah al-Nisa’ 4:79]

Whether we encounter challenges in earning a living, in our family affairs, or other matters of life, the burden of sins greatly inhibits us from seeking the ultimate blessings of Allah and to have the potential of leading a good life in this world and the hereafter.

As for making Dua and the enormous potential it holds to help us ask for forgiveness and other things, the following provides a short description.

The following are some of the prophet’s sayings about making Dua to Allah.

Dua for mercy from Allah
  • Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “The dua’ of any one of you will be answered so long as he does not seek to hasten it, and does not say, ‘I made dua’ but I had no answer.’” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5865; Muslim, 2735, from the hadeeth of Abu Hurayrah).
  • In the hadeeth which was narrated by al-Tirmidhi from Abu Hurayrah, who said: “The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: ‘There is no man who prays to Allah and makes dua’ to Him, and does not receive a response. Either it will be hastened for him in this world, or it will be stored up for him in the Hereafter, so long as he does not pray for something sinful, or to cut the ties of kinship, or seek a speedy response.’ They said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, what does seeking a speedy response mean?’ He said, ‘Saying, “I prayed to my Lord and He did not answer me.”’” (Al-Tirmidhi, 3859; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi, 852).
dua Allah
  • Some people follow practices that are not sanctioned by the Quran or Hadith such as repeating some of Allah’s names a few times. A number of scholars have said that “The words mentioned in the question are phrases that are narrated in the Quran and Sunnah, but saying that they must be repeated [so many] number of times is an innovated matter which should not be followed. Rather we should mention them during our dua’s and address Allah by all His beautiful names, without singling out some names or stating that they should be recited a certain number of times or at certain times, making that up ourselves. We should adhere to what was narrated in sharee’ah concerning certain times, places or situations connected to a particular dua’; if no such details were narrated in sharee’ah then we should not make them up ourselves because that is encroaching upon the rights of Prophethood.
dua for success Allah
  • In the hadeeth it says: “One of you may be answered so long as he is not hasty and says, ‘I said dua’ but I got no response.’” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 6340; Muslim, 2735.
  • In Saheeh Muslim (2736) it says: “A man’s (dua’s) may be answered so long as it does not involve sin or severing the ties of kinship or hastening.” It was said: “O Messenger of Allah, what does hastening mean?” He said: “When he says, ‘I made dua’ and I made dua’ but I did not see any response,’ so he gets discouraged and stops making dua’.”
  • The dua’ should not involve sin or severing of the ties of kinship, as stated in the hadeeth quoted above: “A man’s (dua’s) may be answered so long as he does not involve sin or severing the ties of kinship …”
  • According to the hadeeth of Abu Hurayrah: “Make dua’ to Allah when you are certain of a response.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi; classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 245.
  • The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Know that Allah does not answer a dua from a distracted heart.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 3479; classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 245.
  • In the hadeeth it says: [The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)] mentioned the man who undertakes a lengthy journey and is disheveled and covered with dust, and he stretches his hands towards heaven saying, ‘O Lord, O Lord,’ when his food is haraam, his drink is haraam, his clothes are haraam. He is nourished with haraam, so how can he be granted a response?

    In our times, we find many reasons why people do
    not make Dua; we forget, don’t know how, or just do not think
    it will be answered. Fundamental to this is the loss of
    dependence and trust upon Allah. As Muslims there is
    something very wrong when we believe our Duas won’t be answered.
    We do not turn to Allah in our times of need and instead put our
    trust, dependence and hopes on worldly things that we think will
    help us.

  • Abslutly what our brother writes the above calum is true. It is 100% true that most of our muslim brothers and siters forget about duo, every body tells to opposite person to make dua for him, and it becomes a fashion. But in fact we our self not doing this.

    May Allah guide every muslim. Ameen.

    • I just would like to say..we are forgetting that as our creator Allah loves all of his khalikat…for God’s sake…dua is not more than kindly, pure heartedly, not calculatingly are asking for what we need and also what we want. I read dua, many dua, but I read quran even more. Quran is hakeem, Allah is wise, and gave us his words in the quran to abide by. Don’t underestimate the power of God’s word. Also, sadaqa is very important. It can work miracles, if you do it without calculating. Be pure of evil thoughts, and when you read quran regularly you won’t own an evil thought. God is good. People are evil, that is why Allah told us to abide by his ruling, because he knows what is for our own good.
      Assalamu Aleikum

    Dua is the key to everything in life; key to all human needs – be it in this world or hereafter. However, being human as we are, we are always in a haste whenever we make dua to Allah (SWT) and expect an immediate answer. The most important thing to note is that once dua is done concensiously with good intentions, be guaranteed that SWT will answer it. You may not see immediate result or get what you asked for but surely you will be answered. As a human you may not know whether what you are asking for from Allah (SWT) is the best for you at the time of your need(s) or not. Allah therefore knows the best for you at ALL TIMES and may decide to provide you with something else instead of what you asked for. May He answer and make our duas beneficial to us, our family, our deen and all Muslim ummah both in this world and hereafter. Ameen.

  • Faldelah TOffar Link Reply

    I agree with Mansoura Belayneh that many of us do not turn to Allah often enough, We should turn to Allah not only in times of need but also when times are good. During the good times we MUST thank Allah for the innumerable mercies we have in our lives. With making Duah comes Sabr and lots more Sabr, We
    have become a people who wants instant gratification, we are used to pressing the buttons and getting what we want NOW. Dua does not work that way as we all know – the secret tool here is sabr…..

  • SEIDU GOODMAN Link Reply

    I believe suffering and natural disasters affects us so badly that we assume our prayers is not acceptable to Allah. Moslems are humilated ,insulted ,abused even killed and no one cares. Lets refine our ways may be Allah will listen to us and answer our prayers.

  • Perseverance is necessary when you made your dua. What one is asking from Allah is only best known to Allah in terms of benefit or harm for the individual asking Allah. Thus, Allah may Delay or Deny your request if it may not be of benefit to you. Hence, we should always pray to Allah for the best option In Allah’s View and wait.

    Regarding to the number of times one requests Allahs favour, nobody says Allah does not HEAR once (infact HE KNOWS WHAT you intend to ask), but you must ask and ONLY HIM and most importantly, repeatedly (though with perseverance) to indicate your dependance on Allah. The similarity of this is the number of rakaats you do in the late nights asking for Allah’s favour. A person who does numerous rakaats in the night is obviously more prayerful than the person who only does his five times obligatory prayers.
    My brother, lets be more prayerful than watching videos through the night.

    indeed dua is the tool of the believer, most especially in this our times of trials and tribulations, Allah swt told usto remember Him in our time of ease and he will remember us in our time of hardship, so our dua’s should not be subjected only to times we are in difficulty, may Allah make ity easy for us. “He who depends on Allah, he is enough for him”

  • Mohummed Nazir Link Reply


    Just would like to add 2 points:

    1) Dua is also a form of ibadah (worship)

    2) In certain situation we cannot just rely on our duas we also have to put in the effort to achieve our goal for e.g. If a student is studying for an exam and the student makes dua everyday “O Allah help me achieve a 1st class degree” the student will never achieve this if they don’t prepare for the exam or put in the effort required to achieve a 1st class. Both go hand in hand you have to put in the effort and ask for help from Allah because victory only comes from Allah.

    Asalamu alaikum brothers and sisters. I want to agree with the message above. When we consume haram and dress haram, how can Allah swt) hear our duas. as muslim we should lead by example – living shari’a. We need to remember that Allah (swt) did not create us in vain. Our purpose in life is to worship him. When we commit sins and forget how to make dua, then we are faced with trials and tribulations.

    I am in Islam now for almost 4 years. I come because I know Islam from long ago. I come back because it bring me peace and calm and I feel it is good for my soul and mind. I have much to learn I know about our prayers and making dua. Yes in these times there are so many things come our way and some so very hard. I have seen this for many years. I do depend on Allah to bring me from dark to light in these times. Even now I am going through hard time in my job with my supervisor who is determined to make my life so hard and keep me down. I seek the help of Allah and I know sometimes I become anxious because of all that is happening around me. But i know Allah knows all, he help me to raise my 2 sons alone to become young men. I admint sometimes I become afraid of the evil around me and I am not sure sometimes how to become stronger. I know we should only fear Allah, but i know sometimes I become weak to my fears. I will ask for the help of my brothers and sisters in this as well and I pray Allah will move me from the place I work to a place of peace and calm.

    Salaama to all,

      Great to see people like you..

      Welcome to ISLAM..

      When I get frustrated or angry..the thing that helps me out is knowing the mercy of Allah..think that when we do not obey or go off track from Allah, how much does he get angry?

      But, Allah is Great, Greatest!

      He never moves away from us..

      The same way..we too should not let our anger come in front of our actions..

      Stay calm at any place..surely Allah will make the place peaceful someday..

      Because for Allah nothing is Impossible!!

  • Asalamu alaikum I would first like to thank the sister for making her comments on the importance of making Dua’s and how they help her with her everyday life situations.We all struggle daily with them and All praises be to Allah that He allows us to revert our thoughts back to him and make Dua.When faced with struggles sometimes as well as sucess we must make Dua.When problems we face with our mates in marriage and divorce we must make Dua.When I feel that nothings going right I make Dua and I ask Allah to help me with my everyday decission making.For Allah is the planner of Plans.

  • Zaheer Link Reply

    I agree with making dua to Allaha and definately he help us in times of our needs and he is the only who can help us, but in all the replys nobody mentioned about asking for some pious person to make dua on his behalf i have read at quite number of places that pious persons dua is eccepted more quickly, if someone can comment on it that will also be helpful .

    Salaam all,

    I put my remarks to Sister Fatimah. I congratulate you on your reversion to Islam, we are all reverts not converts. We are born Muslims, but our parents shape us. Have heart and faith in Allah swt, He will guide you always. I had problems with my work too previously until I could not breathe, and feared coming to work in morning. Until I arrived to the moment when I put my signature to my resignation letter, I said Bismillah…and in my heart I placed 200% faith that Allah will care for me. I did not have any other job to go to at that time. And after that signature, I felt free. And the following week, Allah sent the company director to visit my workplace (I was still serving my resignation notice then), enquired about me, and to make long story short, he placed me in another department of the company ! In other words, I was rehired and placed in a better workplace. Allahu Akbar ! So Sister Fatimah, have total faith in Allah, to the extent that you do not worry about anything, as everything will be taken care of by Him. He will guide you to the right path. You just need to ask.


  • Mansoura Saeed Belayneh Link Reply

    Salaam All,

    The dua can change our life, our outlook, and our fate. It is the most potent weapon of a believer.

    We should make dua at all times, not only during times of distress. The Prophet Muhammad said: “Whosoever desires that Allah answers his duas in unfavorable and difficult conditions, he should make plentiful dua in days of ease and comfort.” Also he said: “The person who does not ask from Allah, Allah becomes angry with him.”

    We should all stand and before Allah and pray for his help, who alone can help.

    Talk to Allah, in times, of need and in times of happiness. Ask Him and thank Him. Ask from your heart. And if you do not get what you wanted, know that He is giving you something better, if not in this world, then in the Akhirah. Where there is du’a there is hope. Believe this.

    Allah Almighty says in the Qur’an:
    “When my servants ask you concerning me, (tell them) I am indeed close (to them). I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he calls on me.” [2:186]

    May Allah bless us all and guide us to the right direction.

  • eza Link Reply

    Assalamo Alaikom, Allahu Akbar!

    Making Dua’h is by submission to the will of Allah (swa), and trusting him (only) that he can provide our needs and help us, in our heart we must believe “Faidah azamto fatawaqallu Allalahi inallaha yuheebon mutawaquillin”, then leave everything to God with patience and perseverance. Moslem will be tested of their patience and perseverance, so show to God that you have it.
    If we don’t feel that our prayers/dua’h were not answered as we projected, it is because we are impatient by withdrawing our trust so soon. If not answered in so short or as projected, the person asks so many why? why me? why him? why not?, etc.? That is a sign of withdrawing our trust to God so soon. That is commanding or dictating God of what to do. You have to trust God if you want to be answered and wait the answers as Allah may please.

    Dua is the key to success.

    when you become mazloom ( I don’t know the english word for mazloom) and make dua, your dua will not denied.

    ulema says mazloom’s dua vibrates the urshe muallla.
    It has became a fashion to say others for dua but really we have to make dua for all our brothers and sisters
    who are in trouble.

    First of all congratulations for publishing such a beautiful topic. I want to tell to my muslim sisters and brothers especially american muslims that please make a friendship with Allah and dont be get depressed. He is one who listens everything and whenever u are depressed or plan to do something please offer two rakahs and ask for what you want and afterafter see the miracles. But remember one thing dont back biting and have bad thoughts in your mind of our other brother and sisters.


  • Fatimah Link Reply

    Please allow me to thank all of you for your care and your dua for me. Truly it overwhelms me to see so many people I never met to care of my thoughts and my feelings. While there are many muslim in USA, often times life can be hard for us and more hard if you are a black person. Sometime I have often wondered in my youth, why my life seem so difficult, but as I have grown older and I look back, I see Allah was in front of me all the time. It was Allah who help me to care my sons and give me strenght to work 2 jobs to feed them, it was Allah who make a way when the dark seemed to cover my eyes, and my face, it was Allah who bless me to have both my parents now at age 88 and 82. I can go on and on with all the things that Allah give to me and do for me. To say thank you is not enough. Though my times have been hard and still are many now, my thoughts are alwasy that Allah see all and now all things and Allah’s word is the last word. Thank you all so so much for caring of me.


  • Allah is all sufficient for every muslim.We as muslims need to believe very strongly that our dua whenever it is made,SWT is ever knowing and will answer at his appointed time.As humans,we are always in a haste to get answers no matter the request.So many of our muslim brothers and sisters do not have that patience that is why they seek quick response else where not minding the consequences. With God all things are possible.

  • As Salaam Alaikum Wa Rah Matullahi Wa Baraktohu brothers and sisters in Islam.

    It was very nice to read the topic Dua. Just a few things We should always read Darood Shareef ” Allah Humma Sali Ala Sayidina Maolana Mohammediu Wa Alaa Ale Sayidina Maolana Mohammediu wa Barik Wa Sallim”, and read as many other surahs and then ask Allah Subhan O Talla for Dua for all. We should always end with Darood Shareef.

    Allah always tests his favourite people, and you will see the more we read and do Dua the more we suffer but is is a test and we have to do Sabar. Insha Allah all our Dua’s from heart is Ameened. May Allah helps all of us to be strong and be able to live in this world of hatred. May he help us be friendly with all and be thankful to all we have. May he helps us of us with our Rizk and Mental and Family Support. May he bless with tons of Barakah that we all can share and think about less fortunate ones. May Allah Sub Han O Ta Allah gives us all Imaan and Hidayat.

    Fatima – please dont think that your times would be hard in days to come please fully believe in Allah who would help you in your daily chores also if you have hard time here think of the life afterwards that HE promises so many times the rewards. Please read the Quran with its meaning and also its tafsir. I know working women have not enough time but please take out some time e.g 30 minutes a day and increase the time slowly. Please recite various Quranic Dua in between the daily work.

    once i experienced something incredible ,i lived an impossible situation ,i saw only death can stop the pain i felt at that time , mt husband had done a big mistake and was jailed in a foreign country ,i was young ,and had a baby of one year old . All people told me that he would be jailed for 15 years ,even lawyers told me that minimum would be 8 years ,he was wronged by someone and caught by the police . i ignored everything about all this till everything collapsed down ,but i said from the first moment i heard about it hamdollilah for all ,my god will not let me down ‘ana inda hossni dani abdi ma dama abdi yohssino aldana bi’ .Allah gave me a strong faith and a positive belief in the future .i have been patient ,and allah sent me a lot of helpful people . for sis months nothing new ,i went to visit him in the foreign country ,in the plane i made douaa and cried to ALLAH ,i said my god show me a light ,i am really lost ,you know that i have no one but you ,i said allah be my waliyi fi aldonia’ i do not know if it was my douaa or my parents or anyother min alsalihin ,but i was answered right after landing at 8 h the president of that country gave a grace to all the prisoners in some cases walahi this is true i was answered ,some friend told me it was an ikramiya from allah because miracles are over ,i tell you nothing is impossible for Allah sobhanaho wa taala ,believe ,cry and pray and you will be answered .ALLAH is so generous and rahim bi ibadihi sobhanaho wa taala.
    know i need your douaa for me for althabat because after all this i am still wronged by my husband ,he is so far from the right path ,need your prayer for him bil houda.

Your prayer was answered before and inshallah it will be answered again. I myself at the moment have many problems. I was a born muslim back and forth, but the difficulty going on in my life right now has made me wake up. I am still depressed, but I am getting better. I prayed to allah to give me a sign that he has forgiven me and is with me to guide me through my problem and a few days later I find out I am pregnant. Mashallah!!! I started to cry but I worry to because my problem is not finished. Inshallah through prayers and duaa it will be ala khair.

      Assalam u Alaikum Sister Meriem,you are a good woman who wants to keep your husband on the right path.Allah ( swt ) gave you strength courage and guidance,then delivered you from your difficulty through the intention and power of your du’a.It is Allah ( swt ) who guides hearts and seals hearts,but as you know i’m sure ,no dua goes unanswered.Allah (swt ) has an appointed time for all things,this is repeated so often in the Holy Quran.So do not weaken your faith ever by being disheartened.You have already displayed your “taqwa” to Allah (swt) once and with His Mercy and Favour your du’a was answered Alhamdullillah! May Allah Ta’ala remove your difficulties and place the noor of Islam in your husbands heart – Ameen Rabbil Alamin

    Dear All,

    It is very true that today we are more dependent on the materialistic world and have forgot the spiritual connection.

    Even if you do not know how to plead in front of Allah Subhana wa Ta’ala, you can get blesed by simply reciting Surah Fateh.
    This in itself is a dua

    Please try to practice this and see the wonders in your life Allah Subhana wa Ta’ala will create

    Dua (Supplication prayers) – True and correct as said THE TOOLS for asking what you want.To make these ” TOOL” be EFFECTIVE , i wanna share the following “spices” to make the supplication Effective :

    Always remember that Allah is watching over us and always be there to take all our burdens and carry them for us.
    Trust in HIM. Have the faith that HE will take care of all your needs, your problems and your trials.Just do your Best
    and Allah will do the rest.
    3. TALK TO HIM OFTEN ( thru sincere prayer):\
    Please, don’t forget to PRAY- OFTEN. Prayer is simply having conversation with HIM. Call HIM and He will be there.
    4. HAVE FAITH:
    Have FAITH AND PUT YOUR TRUST IN HIM. HE will continue to care for you, watch over you, and meet your needs. You only have to TRUST HIM.
    5. BE PATIENT:
    Trust in HIS timing, for HIS timing is perfect.
    6. BE KIND:
    Please try to get along, for HIS sake. HE created each of you different in some way. Be kind to others.
    lOVE YOURSELF As much as ALLAH loves you .It makes HIS heart ache when HE sees you so angry with yourself when things go wrong. WE ARE ALL very precious to HIM….precious since we are all His creation.

    I hope that you will be blessed by this .

  • i am overwhelmed reading the coment submited by my 30 muslim brothers and sisters. being the 31st, i hope i will not be the last. dua is teh key to success and great step to have strong faith. The more prayerful we are, the stronger we become in our faith. no matter what comes our way it is thru dua that we will believe that tough times never last but tough minds. irrespective of the obstacle we are facing presently lets believe Almighty Allah is only testing our faith so dont let us faith. Though it is had to have this strong faith very few do have it but please let us all endure to make it thru. this faith is fading gently in me but thanks to Almighty Allah for giving me a wonderful mother in what is happening to me recently. Im in a company where we are all working without pay. im a fresh gradute others are still managing to cope bcs they’ve bn working wth another company before now. as a fresh graduate im spending a lot of money for transport fare alone, monthly. food is not there, ive nt bn paid for 3 month that i started and no other working place option. what do i do, i dnt know. Only my mum is giving me courage to continue praying that it will be well and i believe so. though im yet paid but i know Allah Subhanna Watahalla in his infinte mercy grant me and all other readers the best we want in our lives and may He grant us Aljana Fridaous Amin

    Wonderful. What you ,ve written here is very true and has happened to me,as it is stated in the sayings of the Prophet for our Duas to accepted first and foremost our intention should be very clear, the source of our earning, feeding ETC should all be wel defined. Otherwise our Duas will not be ansswered.

    Allah should reward the entire IQRA memebers with Janat -u – l Firdaus Ameen.

    Du’a is very essential, it is our gateway reaching Allah mercy and blessings, anything we fear and distress in this world, No one will help us except Allah alone, to Him we must rely. I have been Muslims for 20 years and my life became more blessed because i am always tries to follow what Allah commands. The significance of prayers dealts all. In my situation, everytime i need help, I could only ask Allah alone, and all my fears and sorrows vanishes, this is the miracle of faith. My beliefs and my religion is very important to me, loving Islam everyday, seeking knowledge is an advantage to me. I am very proud i embraced Islam, no other religion suffices any human being, only Islam.

    Assalama Allaykum Dear Iqra members and all the other brothers and sisters who sent these comments to this forum,
    i got this in my email today, and am telling you it was the time i needed it, i feel it is as a miracle that it came to me all the way to my inbox when i was so much in distress and feeling that my whole world has came down, i have been going through so many trials but this helped me to reconnect with Allah and never gave up on praying to Allah, i agree with my Iqra brothers and sisters all that they wrote above and that is real, we have to put all our faith, trust in Allah and only rely on him, am so happy that i gained some knowledge from this forum and understand how prayers and carried out and also that patience and perseverence are priceless.may Allah reward you for all the good work u did to portray to the muslim people how effective prayers can be and that it is good to get close to Allah by making prayers all the time. Jasakumu LLahu Khayr…..

    Reading your messages have brought tears in my eyes. It has been too long that I have been taking distance from Allah.
    This article is saying entire truth. The more you start committing sins, the more you get involved and the more they become common to you. You enter a vicious circle… thinking, I have already done it, so it won’t change anything… But each time, your sin increase in degree… it becomes a bigger one. And one day you realize that you are finally doing as everyone is doing, you have become what you have always denigrated and hated. You have become a full sinner.
    How is that possible?
    Powerwill leaves, you become depressed, you do not enjoy anything, you do not show respect to family anymore, life becomes dark and you think now it is too late. You fear facing Allah. You do not have trust in anything anymore. You try to pray but your attention is not there. It is a superficial prayer.
    As the article mentions it, you also bear the consequence of your sins. In my life, I have always noticed that whenever I have committed wrong acts (would it be small or big), I have always been punished for it. It is as if Allah does not want me to commit sins and if I do, I’m punished straight away.
    I can give you example, the biggest example of my whole life. Lately I did something wrong (don’t be amazed, for some people, that act would be nothing, for me it was already too much). The day after, I was loosing my job.
    While committing that sin, I had Allah in my mind, I was thinking of Him. But I did not stop. And see, the day after, I was being deprived of my earnings.
    Life has become quite difficult for me lately. All due to the hatred I have developped for people but also and mostly because I started loosing faith in my Allah.
    I pray every day to him to bring me back on right track, to be as before the examplary person.
    Also, if there are some youngs here, be careful about your company. Do not tie links with people who might have a bad influence on you. Unless you are very very strong (which I thought I was), you will always end up being influenced without even noticing it. This is the game of Shaytan. So be careful.

    I think i have talked too much… JazakAllah Khair.

  • Assalam -Wa- alykum,
    My Muslim Brothers and Sisters , I think that we all have sense of our duties and we all know about making dua’s to ALLAH but still donot practice or follow it seriously . Whichever time you get wherever place you get let you be alone or be with friends be in gathering or any where always talk about ALLAH tell good things to others listen to people what good they suggest. Always Pray to ALLAH , Ask whatever you want you will get whatever is your wish I think That HE gives every body his or her own share which HE has fixed for him or her. And when you don’t get what you have asked from HIM don’t feel sad because much more he is going to give you by multiplying the good deeds you have done. HE never does wrong to us it we donot have patience in us. So Please pray pray pray make Duas not only for ourselves for others also . thanks

    Indeed dua is the best tool which we muslims have.
    we can make dua by reciting surah fateha then durood
    one more thing i want to add to this is we can make duaa
    by giving the waseela of our good deed which we have done
    only and only for the sake of allah.inshallah allah will surely
    answer our prayers.

    Allah swt is Most Wise. When we make dua we should never think that Allah swt has not answered our dua. There is also a great lesson to be learned behind dua. Our duas are tests from Allah. We all go on about having patience but when put to the test how many of us actually strive for this quality. Sometimes Allah swt delays so we are forced to practise patience. It happened to me Mashallah 🙂

    Allah has power over all things . Always trust in god
    And keep praying …. HE is the best helper for all things.

  • Yolanda Docena Link Reply

    Dua’a or supplications are very essential especially when we suffer troubles in this life, life in this world is very hard, you have to work in order to survive, you have to live to the fullest that no matter how hard it is, still we need someone whom we could lean on. Only Allah can give us all what we wanted, His blessings will lead us to where we gonna be. Dua’a is our sword in order to survive, without Allah’s blessings and forgiveness, we arent valuable and not worth in the sight of Allah. He created us to worship him Alone and Dua’a will lead us to straight path. Make it a habit, make Dua’a in everything we do, do you think what is right, and He wont abandoned us, so true, it applies to me all the time. May Allah grant us all peace and blessings, live and die as good belivers and InshaAllah we go to Jennah.

    Another aspect of Dua that is very important is saying it the right way. Most of us that do not understand the Arabic Language and its meanings end up reciting the Dua wrongly. We need to learn the language to know what we are asking from our creator. Otherwise I feel it is better to say our Dua in our mother tongue. Allah (SWA) understands us in what everway we ask Him. This is in addition to taqwa and being free from haram. Above all we ask Allah for His Rahmah, which is domain for accepting our Duas’. Thank you for this site.

    It should be noted in the hadith quoted above that the sins we commit has got a great impact on our prayers being answered. This is more so because the prophet (SAW) informed us of a number of people whose prayers can’t but be answered among whom is a traveller while on the journey…Despite the fact that the man is on a journey (and hence should have his prayers quickly answered), he’s still denied this golden opportunity of a prompt response to his request because of his consumption of haraam…

  • Muhammad Aminu Jibril Link Reply

    Very few Muslims understand the power of suplication. We hardly create time for du’a, forgeting that Allah’s doors are open for their acceptance. No prayer as long as it meets the set requirement goes unswered. Therefore, there is need for us all to imbibe the tradition of saying du’a at least once a day. May Allah give us the wisdom of engaging in supplication, amin
    For you out there, may Allah reward you abundantly.

      As’Salamu Alaikum Sister,
      I have prayed for you. Allah Please help my sister in Islam to know without a doubt that You are listening to her and that Your help will come to her in this life or in the hereafter as long as her intentions are pure, and she seeks forgiveness, and she worships You alone, and she only prays to You for help. (not for the help of persons who have died) Please guide her to seek knowledge from the Imam in her local Masjid, and also the help of the sisters in her Masjid, and please guide her to the Masjid every Friday to pray in congregation for Juma Prayer and to gain knowledge from the Imam’s Khutbahs. Ameen.

      Dear Sister, I am like you. I do not know how to pray the Surahs in Arabic. I only know Al Fatiha in Arabic. I am struggeling myself, to immerse myself in an Islamic way of life for myself and my husband and two teenage sons. It is not easy when there are so many people who are encouraging non-Islamic behavior. I will continue to perfect my faith and ask for forgiveness along the way. Until you are able to learn the Suras in Arabic, say them in English or your mother language. Until you are able to recite the Suras word-by-word in English, recite what you remember. Learn how to pray by going to Youtube and searching “How to pray in Islam” there are some videos that will teach you. Also to learn the prayers in Arabic, go to google and type: (mount hira surah al fatiha) and you will receive a wonderful website which I have just started to learn from.

      Praise be to Allaah.

      The rights of parents over their children may be summed up as treating them well in all matters, and behaving with them kindly as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

      “And We have enjoined on man to be dutiful and kind to his parents”
      [al-Ahqaaf 46:15]

      “And We have enjoined on man to be dutiful and kind to his parents”

      [al-‘Ankaboot 29:8]

      “but behave with them in the world kindly”

      [Luqmaan 31:15]

      Shaykh al-Sa’di (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: “be dutiful and kind to parents” means: treat them kindly in all ways, in word and in deed.

      Tafseer al-Sa’di, p. 524.

      One of the most important acts of worship that the child is asked to do with regard to his parents is to obey them, to do as they ask and to refrain from what they tell him not to do. So if his father tells him to do something, he hastens to do what he is told, and if he tells him not to do something, he hastens to give it up, so long as that does not involve any disobedience towards Allaah and his Messenger, because there is no obedience to any created being if itinvolves disobedience towards the Creator.

      Then he can make du’aa’ for them and pray for forgiveness for them, especially when they grow old and weak and are in need of someone to treat them kindly and take care of their needs. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

      “And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honour.

      24. And lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy, and say: ‘My Lord! Bestow on them Your Mercy as they did bring me up when I was young’”

      [al-Isra’ 17:23-24]

      Allaah has given examples in His Book of kind treatment of parents. Allaah says of His slave Yahya ibn Zakariyya:

      “(It was said to his son): ‘O Yahya (John)! Hold fast the Scripture [the Tawraat (Torah)].’ And We gave him wisdom while yet a child.

      13. And (made him) sympathetic to men as a mercy (or a grant) from Us, and pure from sins [i.e. Yahya (John)] and he was righteous,

      14. And dutiful towards his parents, and he was neither arrogant nor disobedient (to Allaah or to his parents).

      15. And Salaam (peace) be on him the day he was born, and the day he dies, and the day he will be raised up to life (again)!”

      [Maryam 19:12-15]

      Ibn Jareer al-Tabari (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: Here Allaah says: “And dutiful towards his parents” meaning that he was quick to obey them, loving towards them, and not disobedient.

      “and he was neither arrogant nor disobedient” – here Allaah tells us that he was not too proud to obey Allaah or his parents, rather he was humble and submissive towards Allaah and his parents, doing what he was commanded to and avoiding what was forbidden to him; he neither disobeyed his Lord nor his parents.

      Tafseer al-Tabari, 16/58

      And Allaah said of His slave ‘Eesa ibn Maryam (interpretation of the meaning):

      “He [‘Eesa (Jesus)] said: ‘Verily, I am a slave of Allaah, He has given me the Scripture and made me a Prophet;

      31. And He has made me blessed wheresoever I be, and has enjoined on me Salaah (prayer), and Zakaah, as long as I live.”

      32. And dutiful to my mother, and made me not arrogant, unblest’”

      [Maryam 19:30-32]

      Ibn Katheer (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: The words “And dutiful to my mother” mean: and He has commanded me to be dutiful to my mother. This is mentioned after obedience to his Lord, because Allaah often mentions the command to worship him and to be dutiful to one’s parents together, as in the verses where He says (interpretation of the meaning):

      “And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents”

      [al-Isra’ 17:23]

      “give thanks to Me and to your parents. Unto Me is the final destination”

      [Luqmaan 31:14]

      And the words “and made me not arrogant, unblest’” mean, He has not made me arrogant and too proud to worship and obey Him and to honour my mother, and thus be doomed as a result of that.

      Tafseer Ibn Katheer, 3/121

      As for after the parents have died, the child can do many things, such as the following:

      1 – If he has wealth, and his parents were in debt, he can discharge their duty by paying off the debt for them.

      2 – If he has wealth and his parents had not performed Hajj, he may perform Hajj on their behalf, or pay for someone else to perform Hajj on their behalf.

      3 – He may pray for forgiveness for them and pray for mercy for them. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

      “and say: ‘My Lord! Bestow on them Your Mercy as they did bring me up when I was young’”

      [al-Isra’ 17:24]

      Shaykh Ibn Sa’di (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: this means, pray for mercy for them, when they are alive and after they die.

      Tafseer al-Sa’di, p. 524

      It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “A man may be raised in status in Paradise and will say, Where did this come from? And it will be said: From your son’s praying for forgiveness for you.” Narrated by Ibn Maajah, 3660; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, no. 1617. This applies if the child has reached the age of discernment and is able to earn money. But if the child is young and does not yet understand things, then these words do not apply in his case.

      An example of how the righteous salaf honoured their parents is that of ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him):

      It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Dinaar from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Umar that a man from among the Bedouins met him on the road to Makkah. ‘Abd-Allaah greeted him with salaam, seated him on the donkey that he was riding and gave him a turban that he had been wearing on his head. Ibn Dinar said: We said to him: May Allaah guide you, they are just Bedouins and they would be content with little. ‘Abd-Allaah said: The father of this man was a friend of ‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab and I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: “The best act of kindness is for the son to uphold ties (of friendship) with those who were his father’s friends.” Narrated by Muslim, 2552.

      According to another report narrated by Ibn ‘Umar: when he went out to Makkah, he had a donkey which he would ride when he got tired of riding his camel, and a turban which he tied around his head. One day whilst he was riding that donkey, a Bedouin passed by him. He said: Are you not So and so, the son of So and so? He said: Yes. He gave him the donkey that he was riding and said: Ride it. And he gave him the turban that he had been wearing on his head, and he said: Tie it around your head. Some of his companions said: May Allaah forgive you, you have given this Bedouin a donkey that you used to ride when you got tired of riding your camel and a turban that you used to wear on your head. He said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: “The best act of kind of kindness is for a man to honour his father’s friend after he has died,” and (this man’s) father was a friend of ‘Umar.

      Abu Hurayrah was appointed in charge of Madeenah by Marwaan. He lived in Dhu’l-Hulayfah (approximately ten kilometers from Madeenah) and his mother lived in one house and he lived in another. When he wanted to go out he would stand at her door, and say: Peace be upon you, O my mother, and the mercy of Allaah and His blessings. And she would say: And upon you, O my son, and the mercy of Allaah and His blessings. And he would say: May Allaah have mercy on you, as you brought me up when I was young. And she would say: May Allaah have mercy on you as you took care of me when I grew old. Then when he wanted to come in, he would do likewise.

      And Allaah knows best.

    Praying for Muslim brother or sister is highly valued in view of Allah. I pray for all of my brothers and sisters who are in difficulties and generally for all of ummah of prophet Mohammad S.A.

    I have heard that if we pray for the betterment of our Muslim borthers and sisters then Allah will grant us the same thing we have demanded for our brother/sister in Islam i.e while praying for certain brother in islam when we’ll invoke Allah that Oh my Lord grant health to my that brother then the angels will invoke Allah that Oh Allah grant same to him too..

    dear brothers and sisters, It is indeed that Allah SWT is Samee and aleem, we should approach him in the manner that my rabb is inna rabbi samee ud dua, with a clean and clear heart. All our prayers are answered in a way or other and we should not lose heart and the best of dua of duas is rabbana aatina fit duniya hasana, wa fil aakhirati hasanatan wa qina azaaban naar, wa adkhilnal jannata ma al abraar. For best supplications read hisn-haseen and follow it – you will see amazing results.
    Request for remembering me in your duas.
    Wassalam. Mushtaq

    Thanks very much for this spiritual insight! You see, Allah is the only SELF SUFFICIENT, and He needs no one for any reason whatsoever. But we constantly need Him to quide, protect, provide and forgive us our numerous misdeeds. The very moment we stop asking Him for His help we have automatically become disobedient and rebelous. Every muslim either in difficulty or in ease must make dua, either for thanks giving or seeking for prosperity. Dua is the most potent weapon for us as believers. May Allah grant us sabbr and accept our various duas. Amin!

    Sometimes prayers are not answered no matter what we do. I think it is foolish to guarantee that your duas will always be answered. I know a Muslim husband who drank alcohol regularly and the wife did not say anything. They are blessed as their children worship their parents and will do anything for them. I know a Muslim family who did everything that would please Allah, but they have gone through unspeakable trials and tribulations.

      Dear Razane

      i would tend to agree with sister Aysha. I am among those people who has gone through numerous trials and tribulations. I was someone very very rich but over nihgt all my wealth was stolen away by my ex wife. There was a point where I could not even buy a coke. Just to give you an idea; i was someone who could spend USD 5,000 in phone calls on 1 of my lines. I will be honest; i despaired many a times but I always come back to Allah SWT and asked HIM to help. It was really difficult and humilating for me. Today Allamdulilah I am back on my feet. I am not as rich as before but Allah gave me so much that I am more than OK.
      As we speak I have aksed duas by the Khaba Shareef, after every swalah, at Intikaaf etc but they have not yet been answered. However i have no doubt that Allah will answer them sooner or later. Please be patient.

    Dear Razanne

    Well I disagree with you – yes you do get good and bad in every nation, but let me tell you the difference between the 2 muslim families.

    The one that drinks knows that this is wrong so yes on this tempory life which is earth you say he is blessed and have all and the one the family that worship Allah has nothing – well you wrong!!!!!

    They are so blessed in many ways – firstly the man that drinks has everything but when he dies – what happens to him after he dies? as he as muslim knows it is big sin to drink. Jesus PBUH also says in bible it is forbidden to drink wine, eat pork, ect. we as muslim believe in Jesus PBUH – we muslim are more christians than the christians are.

    The family that is praising Allah and following what our beloved prophet Muhammad (PBUH) will get the life they deseve and that is paradise-

    I have embraced islam 8months ago and I know how lost I was in this tempory world – I am far better off without all my riches and prefer living my life as a muslim who lives for Allah and is thankfull for blessing and teaching from our beloved Muhammad PBUH.
    So what I am saying to you – that earth is a tempory life – life begins after death – so think for yourself we muslim who live our lives as Allah wants us to live – do reap the greatest reward – Life after death – PARADISE.

    I am one of those people you always want hasty and quicker results. but by this useful post i’ve realised that the fault lies with me, it’s not Allah who doesn’t answer me but it’s I, who is always in a rush to see my supplications being heard.

  • Assalamo Alaykom Warahmataulla.

    Do you want the fastest reply for your dua? Faster than the reply to the travellers,to those who fast, to those who are sick, and to those of the mujahideen making dua when confronting their enemies?”
    The Prophet (saws) said :

    “The supplication that gets the quickest answer is the one made by one Muslim for another in his absence.”

    …… Reported by Abu Daw’ud and Tirmidhi
    he Prophet (saws) said:

    Whenever you make a supplication for another believer and he is not present, an angel will say ‘Ameen and same to you.’

    If you have problems, make dua for your brothers and sisters that all their problems will be solved. If you say: ” O Allah! solve the problems of my sisters and my brothers.” The Angel say,” Ameen and same to you. The reply is so very fast for your brothers, sisters and for you, faster than the reply to the dua of the Mujahideen, Travellers going for Hajj,etc. You want to get married as soon as possible say like::((Ya! Allah! send righteous muslim woman for my sister(name your sister) to propose to get married to her and to love her till eternity so that she will not commit zina. The Angel say,” Ameen wa laka” Ameen and for you too.So fast your sister will get married and you too. Do you want to find decent job, then make dua for your sisters who are looking decent jobs like: Ya Allah! give a decent and blessed job for my sister( Mariam or whoever you know)or all my muslim sisters and brothers in need of jobs with better salaries.” The angel say: Ameen wa laka. Ameen and for you too. So fast your sisters and brothers that they can find decent jobs and you too. Whatever good dua you did for your brothers and sisters, the reply for them is so fast and for you too. Ya Allah! help my husband to become so faithful to you and make him peaceful and rich in this world till eternity. Let him enter jannah Firdaus.The reply is so fast for your husband and so fast for you.Your husband would become peaceful and rich till eternity and you too, Insha Allah.In shorth, be altruistic in your dua and deeds for the sake of Allah. Make dua in your dialect if you don’t know arabic language. It’s recemmended that you never tell your sisters or brothers that you make dua for her if you want a the quickest reply for your dua. May Allah accept all your good dua. And may he not accept all your bad dua. Ameen

  • whenever i am depressed i read about Allah and it gives me hope, strength and belief that my dua will be accepted by Allah.

    I just want to say to all the youngsters in the tide of blossoming into adulthood. Protect yourself from nothing but yourself. You are your greatest enemy. Sisters in Islam stop thinking that a boyfriend will stay in your life forever, brothers in Islam think of another’s daughter as you would your own sister. Carry her respect as you would your sister’s. Remember the more you fall in sin, the further away you get from Allah and his mercy. Don’t wonder why you don’t receive a response when you become ignorant yourself. He, the almighty does not need you, you need him.

    My Dear Brothers & Sisters

    If you want all your affairs and difficulties to be straightened by Allah s.w.a, firstly ensure to correct your Salah (Pray every Salah on time & for Brothers if possible with Jamaat). Show Allah s.w.a physically&emotionally that you are in need of HIM.

    Ensure your character is good by respecting ALL those around you and look for opportunities to do many good deeds consistently small or large for the pleasure of Allah s.w.a

    Remember Allah s.w.a constantly as HE will remember you.

    Sometimes, and I speak from personal experiences we know deep down what we have to do but need quick results, however please follow the above advice and see what Allah s.w.a can do for you.

    Please remember me & the Ummah in your prayers.

    Jazak Allah Khairum

    Also, please make dua for me. The relationship between me and my husband is not going so well. He don’t love me, not attracted to me, and he mistreats me. Also, almost 5 years of marriage and we have no children after trying natural way and with medical help. I believe there is some black magic done on us and my marriage is childless and loveless with extreme abuse. Please my dear brothers and sisters, make dua for me that Allah gives us children and my husband loves me very much. I love him a lot and I cannot leave him. That will be my worst nightmare. Please pray that Allah bless us with children and please pray to Allah that my husband treats me with love, care, and respect.

    Also, please pray that the spell of Black Magic or Curse is removed from us. Please pray that our love grows day by day. Please make this dua for me. InshaAllah I am praying to Allah for all of you too to help you with your duas also. InshaAllah.

  • Salaam to all Brothers and Sisters in Islam,number one criteria for a dua to be accepted is sincerity usually we buy a book of dua and we have no idea what this dua’s book says we just open up and flip the pages and we read dua for this dua for that we don’t understand Arabic we have no clue so we just repeat like parrots thinking that Allah SWT will give us what we want the number one criteria for a dua to be accepted is sincerity and when we don’t know what the dua says how can we be sincere ?

  • Saadatu Link Reply

    I am really touched by the way my brothers and sisters are responding to the issue of dua.Who ever desires peace, tranquility and comfort can find it all in the remembrance of Allah SWT. You should know with certainty that everything that happens occurs in accordance with a divine decree (ordainment). Everything that is decreed for the muslim is best for him.
    I want you to enumerate the blessings of Allah and be thankful for them and that you are better off than others.
    So have a firm trust in Allah,resign to the facts that everything that is decreed will happen, be patient and that from one hour to the next,circumstances are transformed and difficulties vanish.
    All these can be achieved through dua to Allah SWT

    I have been feeling like nothing makes me happy anymore, and i don’t think it is a coincidence that I have been sinning again with my boyfriend. I have realised this 100% now and will be staying away from it. Even in the past when I was younger I always would get punished after sinning or talking bad to my mother or grandmother. I used to think to myself why doesn’t anyone else get punished for this and that or after doing this and that? But then maybe I realised Allah doesn’t punish the people or give trials to those that don’t believe in him as much as the people that do. I love Islam. I’m very glad Allah put me on the right path Allamdullillah. Long story short my point was sinning really does have an effect on you. Anyone who is going through something right now, Istighfar, Istighfar, Istighfar. Read duas about repentance and grateful ness and practise them every single day. Read the Quran, listen to the recitation of the Quran as much as you can. Never underestimate how much it really helps. May Allah hear all your prayers. Ameen

    As salaam Aliakum wa Rahmathalahi wa Barkathahu!
    I was going through the comments of people and I felt that Dua is part of our prayers daily. Without Dua our prayers are not complete, it is a means of being connected with Allah, also of thanking him for his bounties that He provides us. When we are sad, we like to be close to Allah by praying to Him. Dua is a tool which keeps us away from depression, I am also going through a hard time, three years back I met with an accident and now I am a parapelegic, it was very difficult for me to come to terms. I was very regular in my prayer,I hated missing my prayer. It took me few months to start praying again, though I still feel uncomfortable because I do not have bladder & bowel control, I only pray to Allah to give me paaki(cleanliness) so that I can say my prayers and fast during Ramadhan Ameen.

    Perhaps pray that you don’t become like the one underneath you in comforts. Pray that you don’t become sick like those who are afflicted from serious illnesses. Pray that you stay healthy. However do not negate the fact that staying healthy means that you involve yourself in healthy lifestyle! It is simple as that. Muslims have forgotten that our system is perfect, our religion is perfect (Literally) and yet we are the ones with the most daunting task in our hands, Why? We are programmed to think a certain way and we take that whole thing hook line and sinker! We are killing each others in droves, displacing each other in millions, these are same people who speak the same language and there is so much against each other and you want to put your hands together and say a DUA??? Wont work! Well DOne is better than Well said. Follow the guidelines of your religion (Perfect). We will be doing a highest form of Ibada, we will strive lesss from Duas and gain alot from our actions.. Ibada is the answer and not just Duas. One prevents and the other cures! SO prevent before it happens! We have the tools! Quran ONLY !

During your prayin time let patience be the best thin u exercise.

    Salam, here is my 2 cents. I think we shouldn’t be discourage, if we in a hard situation or we think our dua are not being answered. Firstly we must read the Quran, and try to understand how Allah works. Every Soul is tested. Even the Prophets, are tested, as Prophet Yusuf, his father, Prophet Moses, Jesus and even Prophet Mohammad….look at their stories and you’ll see that Allah had tested them harshly but they were patiants, and believers. I think Allah test us, and therefore to see which one of us should be gifted with Janaaha….For example, if you in the 1st grade, and you never get tested, you’ll not move to the 2nd grade, but some might say well I get tested so much, I don’t know what to do…first it was my job, wife, and now my kids…but just think about it, if you in college let say, and your teacher gave you an exam…there you didn’t do well, and the teacher never gave you a second chance? I mean how will you pass? So if Allah didn’t test us again, while maybe we failed the first test…..seriously think about it, how much Allah Love us….and I’m so happy now after learning this, that I don’t feel negative, when I’m getting tested, as of now, I said Thanks to Allah…and I started to pray, and ask Allah to forgive me, and help me over come this issue…and May Allah forgive my sins….the best time to pray is the night prayer, in the midnight….please pray long, take your time so sijda very important and ask Allah to help you, and ask for anything….I always Asked Allah to make me successful in this life and here after….and I didn’t know but seriously, my Business is doing well, no success with family yet, but hey Allah is testing me, and I’m sure he will answer my prayer, it just a matter of time…if not in this life, here-after…because you know that some of the prayers are answered after life….and may Allah knows…hope my prayers are answered after life, so this way I could be happy..Ameen.

    My dear brothers and sisters.i thank you all for what you are doing.Moral support is like a magic pill.
    I agree with all of you that Dua is the weapon of the believer.i have been married since 10 years n i have spent hell life.i pray five times n With all surogatory prayers.i fast twice a week.i am not attached to this material world .everyday i pray for Umattee Muhammad SAW with tears in my eyes.
    I bear patience with my hubby firstly cos of Allah n secondly cos of my son.
    i have cared and loved my hubby like a king.
    He has lots of complexes n cannot see my success .i have always respected him cos i fear Allah.its my doahs n faith that keeps me moving on.
    but I am very sad today because there is someone whom i consider a very special person in my life has hurt me badly.He was like a family member.He was in problems.i fast for his problems.i fast to ask Allah his forgiveness.i fast for istikhara cos of his problems with his partner.
    i give sadkahs every thursday for him.nite n days i pray for him n it is two years we have known each other cos he is my supplier of bedsheets .
    I did all this for the sake of Allah Only.
    But i return i get a big kick.
    The reason is because i was guiding him on right path.That day when he got angry….i was fasting n reading wazeefahs for his problems .i sent him sms i told him today i am fasting n reading wazeefahs so plz today control ur nafs n dont do any bad things cos my fast n wazeefahs wont work.he was in financial crisis.could you believe me he froze all his last seen n block me on fb.
    Even that…everyday i keep on praying for him n ask his forgiveness.
    I just ask you my dear brother and sisters to pray for me so that he realised his mistakes and ask me forgiveness..
    Pray sincerely to SWT that he message me and i dont want he has any rancour in his heart for me.May Allah forgive me if i have hurt him.
