Making dua to Allah is not an option, but a necessity

The Importance of Making Dua

For those of us who only use dua when we are in dire need or difficulty, the reminders in this post prove that we should NEVER let go of making dua to Allah. This is because making dua lets us seek Allah’s attention. Furthermore, dua similar to prayers is an act of worship that we simply can’t ignore. Taking it another step, by us not making Dua makes Allah angry.

Consider the following sayings of Allah and the prophet:

Seeking Allah’s attention

Allah says in the Quran:

Allah listens to Dua

“Say (O Muhammad (SAW) to the disbelievers): My Lord pays attention to you only because of your invocation to Him. But now you have indeed denied (Him). So the torment will be yours for ever (inseparable permanent punishment).”

(Quran, Surah Al-Furqaan, Verse 77)

Dua is considered as an act of worship

The Prophet (SAW) said:

“Dua is worship.”

[Narrated by Al-Tirmidhi, 3372; Abu Dawood, 1479; Ibn Maajah, 3828; classed as Saheeh by Al-Albaani in Saheeh Al-Tirmidhi, 2590]

Al-Tirmidhi narrated that Al-Nu’maan ibn Basheer (RA) said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (SAW) say on the minbar:

islam on What is Ramadan? An Introduction

“Dua is worship.” Then he recited the verse (interpretation of the meaning): “And your Lord said: Invoke Me [i.e. believe in My Oneness (Islamic Monotheism) and ask Me for anything] I will respond to your (invocation)…”

[Al-Tirmidhi said: a Saheeh hasan hadith]

Not making Dua makes Allah angry

The Prophet (SAW) said:

“Whoever does not ask of Allah, He becomes angry with him.”

[Classed as hasan by Al-Albaani. Saheeh Sunan Al-Tirmidhi, 2686]

We, therefore, should not wait to build that relationship with Allah that one can build through the channel of Dua. We should ask Allah often, even if it’s just forgiveness for our sins and thanking Him for his bounties.

Again, remember – ask Allah as often as you can.
