Making Dua to Allah (SWT)

MV: Aselamulaikum my Muslim Friends! Today’s post is about one thing that I love about Islam, Making Dua’s or calling out to Allah (SWT). Allah (SWT) can do anything and make anything happen and you can ask for anything (as long as its halal or it won’t be accepted) and this gives you a way to remember Allah (SWT) and He can make it possible inshAllah. So this post goes in to detail about that and also it explains how a Dua will not be accepted.

‘Dua’ means to ask Allah directly for something. There is nothing that Allah cannot do, therefore Dua is basically the means of asking the creator to do something and Allah is capable of doing each and everything imaginable and the things that are beyond belief for the human mind. Rasullullah Allah's Peace  and blessings be upon him used to turn to Allah for every matter in life, be it small or big. However insignificant a task may be, as Muslims we have been instructed and advised to turn towards Allah in times of happiness and of sadness. If the mind is not connected to Allah, we will result in asking help from the creation of Allah.

Sometimes there are bad conditions in the world; we tend to ask ourselves questions about why the Muslims are being punished? And why we are being oppressed? Why is it happening to us like this? We make so much Dua to Allah very often and in the end we don’t see the fruits of our Dua. The question which tends to arise is why are our Dua’s not being accepted? We get caught in the clear trap of Shaytaan and start to think, ‘Why isn’t Allah doing as we want him to do? We feel that we are making Dua but nothing is happening.

The reason behind this attitude is that as humans we tend to always want to do things in a hurry. We want things to be done overnight and often because of this very reason, we do things with lack of wisdom.

This promise demands steadfastness upon the deen of almighty Allah and not following the ways of the Shaytaan. As weak Muslims we don’t seem to stay steadfast. We commit sins but don’t feel this could be a reason why our Dua’s are failing to be answered. We expect them to be accepted before we even finish them! If we look at the lives of the Prophets Alayhis Salaam, we will find that even though they were free from sin, still their Dua’s weren’t granted straight away. Hazrat Musa prayed for approximately forty years, only then did Allah answer his Dua’s. Not only Prophet Musa but there are so many prophets whose lives bear witness to Dua’s that weren’t accepted straight away. The Prophet Ayyub is another example, according to some Ulama, his Dua’s were finally accepted after seventy years of calmly waiting. We need to notice the fact that he didn’t once lose hope and become disheartened, but remained steadfast. On calling towards Allah, practicing patience and making Dua for their needs to be fulfilled.

Sometimes the wish we ask Allah for, may not always be what is best for us, and Allah through his infinite wisdom, decides what is best for us at the time, then later we find out that it was better that the wish we asked for wasn’t granted. We should never feel that our asking from Allah or our time spent is being wasted because if our Dua is not answered in this world then it is being stored and will be answered in the form of numerous rewards in the hereafter. Allah loves to see his servants remembering him, begging and crying before him and often the case is that if Allah gives his servants what he wants and removes the difficulty he is going through, he stops begging before Allah, so this way Allah rewards him for his patience too.

Keeping this in mind we should not become disheartened when we don’t see our prayers being answered, but instead we should ask even more from Allah and the result in us becoming closer to Allah. Rasullullah Allah's Peace  and blessings be upon him is reported to have said, “Dua is the weapon of a Muslim”.

May Allah give us all the ability to remember him at all times. Ameen.

    I’ll say Ameen to each and every of your du’as.
    You guys are doing a great job- May Allah (sw’t) blesses you infinitely for that- but yet,
    I just wanted to pinpoint that there has clearly been an error in this article.

    There’s no such as Sûrah 90 verse 60 or Sûrah 60 verse 90.
    Please correct.
