The protocol of making your Dua?? |

How do we make our Dua?

The good news about the Duas that we make is that our prophet has already taught us most of the Duas related to situations such as hardship, anxiety, depression, forgiveness of sins, attaining more wealth, health, well being for the family, and for achieving other general good in this life and the hereafter.

So, as long as you are making all those Duas for yourself anyway, why not make them in the exact words that the prophet did and also taught us to do the same?

If you read some of the Prophets Duas, pay particular attention to the protocol that the prophet exercised when making some of the longer Duas. You will notice that those Duas involve praising Allah, Duas seeking forgiveness for ones sins, acknowledging His attributes, and  recognizing His power over the entire universe followed by presenting one’s needs to Allah.

The language of the Duas as the prophet had taught us includes words that elevate us to a state where we adopt humility, abandon pride of all sorts, reinforce our belief in His Oneness, and acknowledge our dependence on Allah. Accordingly, as those words humble you in front of your Creator and instill within you the empowering emotions of gratitude and humility, you are then ready to make your case to Him. Knowing the protocols of making Dua, you very well know that getting into that state has a better chance of getting your Duas heard than making simple flat statements in a hurry.

If you attentively read the Duas that the prophet taught us, you will also learn about matters that you probably didn’t know would be beneficial or hurtful to you.

So, take the time to make these Duas as the prophet made them. All that’s needed to get your pleas to Allah is for YOU to get on the case and do it.

    JazakAllah Khair for your service to the Muslim community; for spreading knowledge about how to attain closeness to Allah Most Merciful, and for helping us learn the right manner and right words with which to supplicate to our Creator Allah Almighty.
    May Allah reward you for your efforts. Aameen.

    shukraal-lakum, iqrasense! Dua, honestly is serious ibadat that entails almost all the principles of other ibadaats like salaat, fasting, hajj e.t.c, so we must copy our duas from the Holy prophet (peace be upon him), if we realy need our duas to be granted and rewarded just like any other form of worshippings. Jazaakumul lah! Ma’assalam.

    Assalamu Alaikum,
    Good learning, should encourage supplication to Allah at all occassions especially after 5 Namaz. When Imam make the Dua and maumeen say Ameen, it will be heard, because there can be at least one Mu’min among us whom Allah will not refuse. That is why we say ” Let us be particpant in the supplication of muslimeen, mu’mineen and saliheen”
