Supplication in Islam (Du'a):Part one

 

 

7/7/2004 2:15:00 PM GMT (islamonline)

 

 

 

In addition to formal prayers, Muslims "call upon" God throughout the day.

 

In the Qur'an, Allah says:

 

"When My servants ask about Me, I am indeed close to them. I listen to the prayer of every supplicant, when he calls on Me. Let them also, with a will, listen to My call, and believe in Me, so that they may walk in the right way" Qur'an (2:186).

 

This is an extract from “Supplication�, written by Abdulaziz Addarweesh

 

In the name of Allah, The most Beneficent, The most Merciful.

 

The subject of Supplication is very important. Every Muslim must know how to supplicate the way that Allah has directed us. I found it very important to write about this subject to guide our brothers in Islam to perform this kind of worship the correct way. I also ask Allah (SWT) to guide me to do good deeds and May Peace and Blessings be upon the Prophet, his Family, Companions and all of his followers to the Day of Judgment.

 

Proofs of supplication from Qur’an

 

All mighty Allah (SWT) said :

 

“And when My slaves ask you (O Mohammed) concerning Me then (answer them), I am indeed near (to them by my knowledge). I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on me (without any mediator or intercessor). So let them obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may be led to the right path.� (Qur'an 2:186).

 

Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) was asked by some of his companions; "Is Allah near so we invoke him or is he far so we call him? so Allah revealed this verse.

 

Allah is near He can hear the supplicant anytime anywhere and respond to him if the supplicant invokes Allah (SWT) with a sincere heart and avoid interdictions of supplication.

 

Allah also said:

 

“Invoke your Lord with humility and in secret, He likes not the aggressors." (Qur'an 7:55)

 

Supplication is of two kinds. One is worship and the other is a request. So He commands to be invoked with humility which is insisting in request and continuously in worship and “secretly" not loud to avoid "Ryea" (showing off).

 

Allah (SWT) also said:

 

“And your Lord said: -Invoke Me [i.e. believe in My Oneness] (and ask Me for anything) I will respond to your (invocation). Verily! Those who scorn My worship [i.e. do not invoke Me, and do not believe in My Oneness ] they will surely enter hell in humiliation!� (Qur'an 40:60).

 

Allah (SWT) said:

 

“Invoke Me, I will respond to you�, so from His mercy for His slaves He has promised to respond to their invocations but for those who do not invoke Him, He has promised punishment because invocation of Allah (SWT) is an act of worship and refusing to invoke Him ( disbelieving in Him or having doubt in His ability to answer the invocation) is refusal to worship Him.

 

Proofs of supplication from Sunnah

 

Narrated An-Numan bin Bashir (may Allah be pleased with him): The Prophet (PBUH) said:

 

"Verily, Supplication is worship�. [Reported by AI-Arbaa (The four) and AI-Tirmidhi, graded it Sahih (sound)].

 

Narrated Anas (may Allah be pleased with him): The Prophet (PBUH) said:

 

“Supplication is the Pith (essence) of worship�. [Reported by At-Tirmidhi with a full chain of narrators].

 

Narrated Abu Hurayrah (Ra): The Prophet (SAW) said:

 

“Nothing is more honorable (most liked ) before Allah (SWT) than Supplication “. [Reported by At-Tirmidhi, Ibn Hibban and Al-Hakim graded it Sahih].

 

From all the, Hadiths above we see that Supplication is a type of worship and it is honorable to Allah or liked by Allah (SWT).

 

Manners of Supplication

 

* Supplication should start with, "In the name of Allah, Praise is to Allah, and Peace and Blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah and should end with (Peace and Blessing be upon the Messenger of Allah)".

 

* Supplication should be performed secretly and with a present (sincere) heart. Allah (SWT) said:

 

"Invoke your Lord with humility and in secret, He likes not the aggressors". (Qur'an 7:55)

 

* Supplicate Allah (SWT) with humility and express your need of Allah (SWT). He said:

 

"Verily, they used to hasten on to do good deeds, and they used to call on Us with hope and fear, and used to humble themselves before us" Qur'an (21:90)

 

* Insist to Allah (SWT) in your supplication by repeating it many times.

 

* Invoke Allah (SWT) by His Names and Attributes. He said:

 

"And (all) the Most Beautiful Names belong to Allah, so call on Him by them" Qur'an (7:180).

 

* Supplicate Allah (SWT) by mentioning the righteous deeds you have done. Narrated Abdullah bin Umar (may Allah be pleased with him), that he heard Allah's Messenger (PBUH), saying "Three men, amongst those who became before you set out until night came and they reached a cave, so they entered it. A rock slithered down from a mountain and blocked the entrance of the cave. They said: “Nothing will save you from this except that you supplicate to Allah (SWT) by mentioning the righteous deeds you have done etc." [Reported by Bukhari and Muslim].

 

* Admit your sins during your supplication. Allah (SWT) said: "Dhan-Nun (Jonah), when he went off in anger, and imagined that We shall not punish him. But he cried through the darkness (saying)"

 

"La ilaha illa Anta (none has the ,right to be worshiped but You) Glorified be You, Truly, I have been of the wrongdoers" (Qur'an 21:87).

 

* Repeat each sentence of your supplication three times. From the long Hadith Narrated by Ibn Masaud (may Allah be pleased with him), And when the Prophet (PBUH) finished his Salat, he raised his voice and Supplicated on them and when he supplicated, he supplicated three times...." [Reported by Muslim].

 

* Face the Kiblah (Mecca) during your supplication. Narrated Abdullah bin Zaid (may Allah be pleased with him); Allah's Messenger (PBUH) went out to his praying place to offer the Salat of Istisqa (rain). He invoked Allah (PBUH) for rain and then faced Al-Kiblah and turned his upper garment inside out. [Reported by Bukhari].

 

* Raise your hands while supplicating Allah (SWT). As in the Hadith of Abu Musa (may Allah be pleased with him); when the Prophet (PBUH) had finished from the battle of Hunain, he said:

 

"the Prophet (PBUH) asked for water, performed ablution and then raised his hands saying 'O Allah forgive Ubaid Abi Amir.� [Reported by Bukahri and Muslim].

 

* Be in the state of Purity during your supplication.

 

* When making supplication for others, start with yourself first then include others. Allah (SWT) said about Noah (PBUH)

 

"My Lord, forgive me and my parents and him who enters my home as a believer, and all the believing men and women.." (Qur'an 71:28).

 

* Do not be aggressive when you are supplicating Allah (SWT) such as asking Him to make you a prophet and you know there will not be a prophet after Mohammed (PBUH) or make you live for ever and you know every one will die.

 

* Remember to include your parents in your supplication.

 

* Be patient. Do not expect an immediate response from Allah (SWT) although this could happen. But if it does not, then you should be patient and continue supplicating Allah (SWT) until you see the results. Narrated Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him); Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said:

 

"The invocation of anyone of you is responded to by Allah (SWT) if he does not show impatience by saying; 'I invoked Allah (SWT) but my request has not been granted� . [Reported by Bukhari and Muslim].

Supplication in Islam (Du'a):Part two

 

7/8/2004 11:00:00 AM GMT

 

 

 

In addition to formal prayers, Muslims "call upon" God throughout the day.

 

Times Of Supplication

 

There are certain times when supplication is more likely to be accepted by Allah (SWT) as the Prophet (PBUH) said. These times are:

 

The Last Third Of The Night:

 

Narrated Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him); that Prophet Mohammad (PBUH)said: In the last third of every night our Lord (Allah [sWT]) descends to the lowermost heaven and says;

 

 

“Who is calling Me, so that I may answer him? Who is asking Me so that may I grant him? Who is seeking forgiveness from Me so that I may forgive him?". [Reported by Bukahri].

 

 

Late at night, when people are sleeping and busy with worldly pleasures Allah (SWT) gives the believers an opportunity, or an answer hour if they can fight sleep and invoke Allah (SWT) for whatever they need.

 

Between Adhan and Iqama:

 

Narrated Anas (Ra); Allah's Messenger (PBUH) said:

 

A supplication made between the Adhan (calling for prayer) and (calling to start praying) Iqama is not rejected. [Reported by An-Nasai and Ibn Hibban graded it sahihAn Hour On Friday:

 

Narrated Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him); Allah's Messenger (PBUH) talked about Friday and said:

 

"There is an hour on Friday and if a Muslim gets it while offering Salat (prayer) and asks something from Allah (SWT), then Allah (SWT) will definitely meet his demand". And he (the Prophet (PBUH) pointed out the shortness of that time with his hands. [Reported by Bukahri].

 

Some said this hour is from the time the Imam (prayer's leader) enters the Masjid on Friday's prayer until the prayer is over where others have said that it is the last hour of the day. (Note: when we say an hour here we do not mean the hour everyone knows [60 minutes] but an unspecified period of time because the time counters which we use today came after the Prophet (PBUH) had died.

 

While Drinking Zamzam Water:

 

Narrated Jaber (may Allah be pleased with him); Allah's Messenger (PBUH) said

 

Zamzam water is for what it is drunk for. [Reported by Ahmed and Ibn Majah].

 

This means that when you drink Zamzam water you may ask Allah (SWT) for anything you like to gain or benefit from this water such as healing from illness.... etc

 

While Prostrating:

 

Narrated Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him); Allah's Messenger (PBUH), said:

 

The nearest a slave can be to his Lord (Creator) is when he is prostrating, so invoke (supplicate) Allah (SWT) much. [Reported by Muslim].

 

When a Muslim is in his Salat (prayer) he is facing Allah (SWT) and when he prostrates he is the nearest he can be to Allah (SWT) so it is best to invoke Allah (SWT) at this time.

 

On The Day Of Arafa:

 

The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:

 

The best supplication is the supplication on the day of Arafa. [Reported by At-Tirmidhi and Malik].

 

When Waking Up at Night:

 

Narrated Ubada Bin As-Samit that Allah's Messenger (PBUH) said:

 

Whomever wakes up at night and says La ilaha illallahu wahdahu la shrika lah lahulmulku, wa lahul hamdu, wa huwa ala kulli shai'in qadir. Alhamdu lillahi, wa subhanallahi wa la ilaha illallahu, wallah akbir, wa la hawla wala quwata illa billah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah (SWT). He is the only one who has no partners. His is the kingdom and all the praises are for Allah (SWT). All the glories are for Allah(SWT). And none has the right to be worshipped but Allah (SWT) and Allah(SWT) is the most Great and there is neither might nor power except with Allah (SWT) and then says, Allahumma ighfir li (O Allah! Forgive me) or invokes Allah (SWT), he will be responded to and if he makes ablution and performs Salat (prayer), his Salat (prayer) will be accepted. [Reported by Bukhari]

 

At The End Of The Obligatory "Salat�:

 

Narrated Abu Omamah (may Allah be pleased with him); that Allah's Messenger (PBUH) was asked, O Messenger of Allah, which supplication is heard (by Allah (SWT), he said the end of the night and at the end of the obligatory Salat (prayer). [Reported by At-Tirmidhi].

 

This time is after saying “At-tahyat�, and before making Tasleem (finishing prayer).

 

The Night Of “Qadr� (Decree):

 

This night is the greatest night of the year. This is the night which the almighty Allah (SWT) said about it:

 

“The night of Al-Qadar (Decree) is better than a thousand month�. (Qur'an 97:3)

 

During The Rain:

 

Narrated Sahel Ibn Saad (may Allah be pleased with him); that the Messenger of Allah (OBUH) said:

 

Two will not be rejected, Supplication after the Adhan (call of prayer) and at the time of the rain. [Reported by Al-Hakim and Abo Dawood].

 

The time of the rain is a time of mercy from Allah (SWT) so, one should take advantage of this time when Allah (SWT) is having mercy on His slaves.

 

The One Who Is Suffering Injustice:

 

The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said to Moaad Ibn Jabal (may Allah be pleased with him):

 

Beware of the supplication of the unjustly treated, because there is no shelter or veil between it (the supplication of the one who is suffering injustice) and Allah (SWT) [Reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

 

The One who is suffering injustice is heard by Allah (SWT) when he invokes Allah (SWT) to retain his rights from the unjust one. Allah (SWT) has sworn to help the one who is suffering from injustice sooner or later as Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said.

 

The Traveler:

 

The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said:

 

Three supplications will not be rejected (by Allah [sWT]), the supplication of the parent for his child, the supplication of the one who is fasting, and the supplication of the traveler,. [Reported by Al-Bayhaqi and approved by Al-Albani].

 

During travel supplication is heard by Allah (SWT) if the trip is for a good reason, but if the trip is for a bad intention or to perform illegal things (making sins) this will not apply to it.

 

The Parents Supplication for His Child: (See the previous paragraph).

 

Conditions of Supplication:

 

- One must know that only Allah (SWT) can answer his supplication and He is the only one Who can bring good to him. Allah (SWT) said:

 

"Is not He Who responds to the distressed one, when he calls Him, and Who removes the evil, and makes you inheritors of the earth, generation after generation. Is there any god with Allah? Little is that you remember" Qur’an (27:62)

 

One must invoke Allah (SWT) alone and no others. Allah (SWT) said:

 

"And the Masjids are for Allah (Alone), so invoke not anyone along with Him" Qur'an (72:18)

 

- One must be patient.

 

- One must think positively of Allah (SWT), must have faith in Him and believe that He has the ability to do anything He wants. Narrated Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him); Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said:

 

"Supplicate Allah with confidence He will answer you" [Reported by At-Tirmidhi].

 

Mistakes In Supplication

 

- Invoking other than Allah (SWT) such as prophets, pious people, stone, idols ... etc this is Shirk (polytheism).

 

- Wishing to die. Some people when they get sick, and they do not heal soon, or they have some personal problems they start wishing for death.

 

- Asking Allah (SWT) to hurry or give his punishment in this life.

 

- Asking Allah (SWT) to break the bond of kin-ship. (such as separating one from his parents).

 

- Supplicating for sins to spread in the Islamic society.

 

- The “Imam� (prayer's leader) making supplication for himself without including the followers in his supplication. (during group prayer, At-taraweh in Ramadan).

 

- Invoking Allah (SWT) to see if there is a response without a sense of genuine purpose.

 

- Raising the voice during the supplication. It should be done secretly.

 

- Saying Insha-Allah, (Allah willing) after the supplication. (Ex.: O' Allah forgive my sins if you will) Narrated Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him); the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:

 

"None of you should say: O' Allah forgive me if you wish, O' Allah be merciful to me if you wish, but he should always appeal to Allah (SWT) with determination, for nobody can force Allah (SWT) to do something against His will.

 

- Invoking Allah (SWT) aggressively, (asking Allah [sWT]) for impossible things such as asking Him to make you a prophet or immortality).

 

- Asking Allah (SWT) to harm a Muslim.

 

- Asking Allah (SWT) to have a Muslim commit a sin or die as a non believer.

 

Reasons For Supplication's Acceptance

 

There are some reasons which cause the supplication to be accepted by Allah (SWT). They are:

 

Repentance to Allah (SWT): The almighty Allah (SWT) said:

 

“I said (to them): 'Ask forgiveness from your Lord, Verily, He is Oft Forgiving; He will send rain to you in abundance; And give you increase in wealth and children, and bestow on you gardens and bestow on you rivers� Qur'an (71:10,12)

- Good income: The income must be halal (lawful) as the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) was asked by one of His companions, How could I have my supplication responded to? The messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:

 

“Make your income lawful and your supplication will be responded to�.

 

- Perform Supererogatory Deeds: Such as voluntary prayer and voluntary fasting.

 

- Chose The Preferred Time For Supplication: (see above).

 

Reasons For Supplication's Rejection

 

As there are reasons for acceptance of a supplication, there are also reasons for rejection of a supplication. Here are some reasons which will cause Allah (SWT) to reject the supplication:

 

1- Illegal Income.

 

2- Committing A Lot Of Sins.

 

3- Having doubt in Allah (SWT), or having doubt that he’ll respond to you supplication.

 

4- Being Aggressive When Supplicating.

 

What Happens When Supplication is Made?

 

When someone invokes Allah (SWT), one of the following will happen:

 

1- Allah (SWT) will respond to the supplicant and He will give him what he asked for.

 

2- Allah (SWT) will prevent the supplicant from being harmed.

 

3- Allah (SWT) will reward the supplicant with “Hasanat� (good reward) which will be kept for him on the Day Of Judgment.

 

Selected Supplications from the Qur’an

 

* “Rabana atina fey ad-dunia hasanah wa fey al-akhairatty hasanah waqana addab annar". (Our Lord, give us in this world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good, and save us from the torment of the Hellfire). (Qur'an 2:201)

 

* "Rabana atina men ladunka rahamah wa haia lana men amrina rashada". (Our Lord, bestow on us mercy from Yourself, and facilitate for us our affair in the right way). (Qur'an 18: 10)

 

*"Rabana la tawakhidna in nasina aw akhtta’ana" (Our Lord, punish us not if we forget or fall into error). (Qur'an 2:286)

 

* Rabana eghfer lana wa lee ekhwanina aladhina sabaqowna bill eaman walla taga’al fey qoolobana ghillan lilathina amanoo, Rabana ennka ra’wofon rahaim" (Our Lord, forgive us and our brethren who have preceded us in faith, and put not in our hearts any hatred against those who have believed. Our Lord, you are indeed full of kindness, most merciful). (Qur'an 59:10)

 

Selected Supplications from Sunnah

 

* Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said:

 

"The best supplication for seeking forgiveness is to say, "Allahuma anta Rabi la ilaha illa anta, khalaqtani wa ana abduka, wa ana ala ahdika wa wa'dika mastata'tu A udhu bika min sharri ma sana'tu, abu'u laka bini'matika alaiya, wa abu'u bidhanbi faghfirli fa innahu la yaghfiru adhunuba illa anta." (O Allah you are my Lord! None has the right to be worshipped but You. You created me and I am Your slave, and I am faithful to my covenant and my promise as much as I can. I seek refuge with You from all the evil I have done. I acknowledge before You all the blessings You have bestowed upon me, and I confess to You all my sins. So I entreat You to forgive my sins, for nobody can forgive sins except You). The Prophet (PBUH) added; "If somebody recites it during the day with firm faith in it, and dies on the same day before evening he will be from the people of Paradise. And if somebody recites it at night with firm faith in it, and dies before morning, he will be from the people of Paradise." [Reported by Al-Bukhari].

 

* Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said:

 

* "Oh people, repent unto Allah for I repent to Allah one hundred times every day". [Reported by Muslim]. (Repenting to Allah by saying "Atubu illa Allah", I repent to Allah).

 

* Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said:

 

"If a Muslim asks Allah (SWT) with the supplication of Prophet Yunus (Jonah), he will be responded to" [Reported by Ahmed].

 

The supplication is

 

 

"La illaha illa anta subhanak ini kuntu mena ad-dalimean"

 

 

Means There is no God but You; Glory be to You, Verily I was one of the transgressors.

 

Brother Muslim, now after you have learned how to invoke Allah (SWT) the way the Prophet (PBUH) did and ordered us to do so, you must always remember when you invoke Allah (SWT) that you are dealing with the Master of everything. The One who Created you so you should have the feeling of this great worship of Allah (SWT). In other words, just imagine, as you are asking promotion from your employer; before anything else you have to do your job in the best way he likes you to do. So you will even work harder and give extra time just to please him. Then, you will choose the best time wherein he will be in a good mood, and you will ask him with the best words he likes to hear from you or to please him (your employer). So if you do that you will more likely get what you want from him. Think brothers, the same with Allah (SWT). Invoke Allah (SWT) just the way He likes, so you will get from Allah (SWT) what you want and if you do not get what you asked for, you must know that the problem is with you and you must check with yourself and your Faith.

 

At the end, I ask Allah (SWT) by His great names and His great attributes to lead me and you to the best of deeds with sincerity for His sake only and peace and blessings be upon the prophet, his family, companions and all of his followers till the last day.

Some Advice for Offering Supplications | Sheikh Muhammad al-Hamad|

 

With respect to how to offer our supplications, there are questions concerning the supplicant’s physical position, his statements, how he should open and close his supplication, and a number of other considerations. In this article, we shall be discussing some of these matters.

 

1. We should praise Allah before supplicating and offer salutations upon the Prophet (peace be upon him).

 

Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) was once sitting in the Masjid when he a man came in and made his prayers. While supplicating, he said: “O Allah! Forgive me and have mercy upon me!�

 

Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said: “You are being hasty, O man in prayer. If you pray and then sit, praise Allah as He should be praised, then seek Allah’s blessings upon me, then supplicate to Allah.� [sunan al-Tirmidhî (3476) and Sunan Abî Dâwûd (1481) and authenticated by al-Albânî]

 

`Umar said: “Supplications remain suspended between heaven and Earth and nothing of them ascends until you beseech Allah’s blessings upon your Prophet (peace be upon him).� [sunan al-Tirmidhî (486) and graded as good by al-Albânî]

 

2. We should admit our sins to Allah.

 

We must confess our sins before Allah and admit our mistakes and shortcomings. The supplication of Jonah (peace be upon him) is indeed one of the mightiest of supplications. It is so only because he professes the oneness of Allah and then admits his sins and shortcomings and the wrong he had committed against his own soul.

 

Allah says: “Then he called out from the depths of darkness: ‘There is no God but You. Glory be to you! Indeed I have been of the wrongdoers.� [sûrah al-Anbiyâ’: 87]

 

The same goes for the supplication known as “the noblest supplication for forgiveness�. One of the reasons why it is such a preferred supplication is that it contains within it an admission of one’s sins and shortcomings. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

The noblest supplication for forgiveness is to say: “O Allah! You are my Lord; there is no God besides You. You created me and I am your slave. I am upon Your covenant and Your promise as much as I am able. I seek refuge with You from the evil which I have done. I acknowledge your blessings upon me and I acknowledge my sins. So forgive me, for indeed none forgives sins except You.�

 

Whoever says this in the morning with conviction and dies on that day before nightfall will be of the denizens of Paradise. And whoever says it at night with conviction and dies before the morn will be of the denizens of Paradise. [sahîh al-Bukhârî (6306)]

 

3. We should be submissive and humble.

 

We must show humility and subservience to Allah when we supplicate to Him, with hope and fear in our hearts. Allah says about His Prophets (peace be upon them all): “Indeed they used to hasten to good deeds and supplicate to Us in hope and fear, and they were humble before Us.� [sûrah al-Anbiyâ’: 90]

 

4. We should be assertive and straightforward in what we ask.

 

Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said: “None of you should say ‘O Allah! Forgive me if You will. O Allah! Have mercy upon me if You will.’ Be assertive in what you ask, since there is no compelling Him.� [sahîh al-Bukhârî (6339)]

 

5. We need to implore Allah.

 

We must implore Allah when we beseech Him in supplication. This is from the beautiful etiquettes of supplication that shows our desire for what is with Allah. Allah loves those who implore Him in supplication.

 

6. We should offer supplications under all circumstances.

 

We must beseech Allah in supplication in both prosperity and adversity, in contentment and unease. The prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Whoever is pleased to have Allah answer him in adversity and distress should offer many supplications when in prosperity.� [sunan al-Tirmidhî (3382) and graded as good by al-Albânî]

 

7. We must avoid invoking supplications against ourselves.

 

We should never utter a supplication against ourselves, our family, or our wealth. Supplications are to be used to beseech what is good and to avert what is bad. No good can come of uttering a supplication against oneself. On the contrary, only bad can come of it.

 

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Never beseech Allah against yourselves or against your children or against your wealth, lest you do in an hour where a petition is granted and you will be answered.� [sahîh Muslim (3009)]

 

8. It is good to repeat our supplication three times.

 

The Prophet (peace be upon him) did so when he besought Allah in supplication against the tribe of Quraysh. [sahîh Muslim (1794)]

 

9. It is good to face the Qiblah.

 

`Abd Allah b. Zayd relates: “The Prophet (peace be upon him) went out to the prayer area to beseech Allah for rain. Then he supplicated and besought Allah for rain. Then he turned and faced the Qiblah and turned his garment inside out…� [sahîh al-Bukhârî (6343)]

 

The Prophet (peace be upon him) faced the Ka`bah when he besought Allah in supplication against the tribe of Quraysh. [sahîh al-Bukhârî (3960)]

 

10. We should raise our hands in supplication.

 

Abû Mûsâ al-Ash`arî relates, describing a supplication of the Prophet (peace be upon him): “…then he raised his hands and I could see the whiteness of his armpits.� [sahîh al-Bukhârî (4323) and Sahîh Muslim (2498)]

 

Ibn `Umar relates: “The Prophet (peace be upon him) raised his hands and said: ‘O Allah! Indeed I beseech of You my innocence of what Khâlid has done’.� [sahîh al-Bukhârî (4339)]

 

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Your Lord – blessed and elevated He is – is shy and generous. He is shy from His servant to raise his hands to Him and turn them away empty and disappointed.� [sunan al-Tirmidhî (3556), Sunan Abî Dâwûd (1488) and Sunan Ibn Mâjah (3865) and graded as good by al-Albânî]

 

We should raise our hands in our general supplications as well as in those special supplications where raising our hands is prescribed, like the supplications at Mount Safâ and Mount Marwah, and the supplication for rain on Friday. There are supplications for which raising the hands is not prescribed, like the supplications for entering and departing from the home and the supplication upon entering the bathroom.

 

11. We might perform some good deed before supplicating.

 

It is good to perform some good deed, like spending in charity, helping a poor person, offering two units of prayer, fasting, or anything else, so that this good deed can be a means of having our supplications answered.

 

We find evidence for this in the famous hadîth about the three men who were trapped in a cave. Each of them beseeched Allah, mentioning the greatest good deed that he had done, and Allah removed the boulder from before the entrance of the cave. The fact that the Prophet (peace be upon him) related this account to us shows us that this is part of the Sunnah.

 

12. We can perform ablutions.

 

This is also mentioned by Abû Mûsâ al-Ash`arî in his description. He says: “He asked for water, then he made wudû’, then he raised his hands and said: ‘O Allah! Forgive `Ubayd b. `Âmir.’ and I could see the whiteness of his armpits.â€? [sahîh al-Bukhârî (4323) and Sahîh Muslim (2498)]

 

13. It is good to have a noble purpose in what we ask for.

 

We might ask: “O Allah! Enrich me so I can spend it on what is true and good and promote the faith.� Or: “O Allah! Bless me with knowledge so I can teach Your servants and be a source of good for others.� Or: “O Allah! Bless me to get married so I can keep myself chaste and avoid sin.�

 

We can see this in the supplication made by Moses (peace be upon him): “My Lord! Expand my breast and ease my task for me and remove the impediment from my speech so that they may understand what I say. And give me a minister from my family – Aaron my brother. Add to my strength through him and have him share my task, that we may glorify You and remember You in abundance. Indeed, You are watchful over us.� [sûrah TâHâ: 25-35]

 

What was the result? Allah answered his supplication and blessed him even more.

 

This etiquette can also be seen where the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “When one of you goes to visit a person who is sick, he should say: ‘O Allah! Give your servant healing so he can ward off an adversary for You or walk to prayer for You.� [sunan Abî Dâwûd (3107) and graded as good by al-Albânî]

 

14. We might weep during supplications.

 

`Abd Allah b. `Amr b. al-`Âs relates that Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) recited the verse where Abraham says: “O my Lord! Indeed they (i.e. the idols) have led astray many people. So whoever follows me is from me and whoever disobeys me, then indeed You are Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.â€? [sûrah Ibrâhîm: 36]

 

And he related the verse containing the following words of Jesus: “If You punish them, then they are indeed Your servants, and if You forgive them, you are indeed the Mighty, the Wise.� [sûrah al-Mâ’idah: 118].

 

Then he raised his hands and said: “O Allah. My people! My people!� and wept.

 

Then Allah said: “O Gabriel! Go to Muhammad – and your Lord knows best – and ask him why he weeps.�

 

So Gabriel went to him and Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) informed him of what he had said.

 

Allah knew best. Allah said: “O Gabriel! Go to Muhammad and say: We will truly make you pleased regarding your people and We shall not grieve you.� [sahîh Muslim (202)]

 

15. A supplicant should openly profess his need for Allah and submit his grievances before his Lord.

 

Allah relates to us the supplication of Job (peace be upon him), saying: “And remember Job when he called out to his Lord saying: ‘Surely distress has seized me and You are the most merciful of those who show mercy’.� [sûrah al-Anbiyâ’: 83]

 

Allah relates to us the supplication of Zechariah (peace be upon him) saying: “And remember Zechariah when he called out to his Lord: ‘My Lord! Do not leave me without offspring, and You are the best of inheritors.� [sûrah al-Anbiyâ’: 89]

 

Then we have the supplication of Jacob (peace be upon him): “I complain of my grief and sorrow only to my Lord� [sûrah Yûsuf: 86]

 

And the supplication of Moses (peace be upon him): “My Lord! Truly I am in need of whatever You send to me of good.� [sûrah al-Qasas: 24]

 

16. We should choose supplications that are comprehensive in meaning.

 

It is better when supplicating to select comprehensive and beautiful statements instead of those that out your statements with extraneous verbiage and details. The Prophet (peace be upon him) used to love supplications that were comprehensive in meaning and left out other things. [sunan Abî Dâwûd (1482) and authenticated by al-Albânî]

 

Al-Khattâbî advised: “Choose for your supplications and the praise of your Lord the best and noblest of words that convey the fullest meanings, because it is the servant’s communion with the Master of all Masters who is like no other and who has no peer.�

 

17. A supplicant should begin by supplication on his own behalf.

 

Ubayy b. Ka`b mentions that Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) “when he supplicated on behalf of others, he used to begin with himself.� [sunan al-Tirmidhî (3385) and Sunan Abî Dâwûd (3984) and authenticated by al-Albânî]

 

We see examples of this approach often in the Qur’ân. For instance: “Our Lord! Forgive us and our brethren who preceded us in faith.� [sûrah al-Hashr: 10]

 

However, this is not necessary when a person simply wishes to supplicate for the benefit of someone else. There are many supplications found in the sacred text where the supplicant beseeches Allah on behalf of someone else and does not mention himself at all.

 

It might be said, then, that when a person intends to beseech Allah in supplication for himself and for others, he should begin with himself and then mention the others. If, on the other hand, he wishes to beseech Allah for someone else, then he does not have to supplicate for himself as well. We have already seen an example of this in the Prophet’s supplication for `Ubayd b. `Âmir where he said: “O Allah! Forgive `Ubayd b. `Âmir.â€?

 

18. We should beseech Allah for our brethren in faith.

 

This is one of the necessities of the brotherhood that we as Muslims are required to uphold. It is also one of the reasons for our supplications being answered. Allah says: “Seek forgiveness for your sins and for the believing men and women.� [sûrah Muhammad: 19]

 

Noah (peace be upon him) said: “My Lord! Forgive me, my parents, all who enter my house in faith, and the believing men and women.� [sûrah Nûh: 28]

 

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Whoever asks forgiveness for the believing men and women, he will have a good deed written to his credit for each and every believing man and woman.� [Majma` al-Zawâ’id (10/210) and graded as good by al-Albânî]

 

It is good to make special mention of our parents, the scholars, the righteous, the devout and those like the rulers whose virtue brings about virtue for all Muslims. It is also preferred to mention the weak and oppressed in our supplications and to beseech Allah against those who oppress and exploit them.

 

19. It is good to supplicate in a soft voice and keep our supplications private.

 

Allah says: “Call upon your Lord with humility and in private, for indeed Allah loves not those who transgress beyond bounds.� [sûrah al-A`râf: 55]

 

Abû Musa relates: “We were with the the Prophet (peace be upon him) when the people began extolling the greatness of Allah in a loud voice. So the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: ‘O people! Calm your voices. You are not calling upon one who is deaf or absent. Indeed, you are calling upon the One who hears and is nearby, and He is with you’.� [sahîh al-Bukhârî (6384)]

 

20. It is good to call Allah by His names, selecting of His names those that are appropriate.

 

One might say: O Merciful One! Have mercy upon me. O generous One! Bestow Your generosity upon me. O Giver of Healing! Cure me. My Allah, give me of your mercy, for indeed You are the Giver… and so forth.

 

21. Those who hear someone offering a supplication can say âmîn to it.

 

We see this in the account given in the Qur’ân of the supplication of Moses and Aaron (peace be upon them both).

 

Commentators of the Qur’ân explain that Moses (peace be upon him) was offering the supplication and Aaron (peace be upon him) was saying âmîn. [refer to: Tafsîr Ibn Kathîr (2/411)]

 

Therefore, Allah says: “We had answered their supplication.� [sûrah Yûnus: 89]

 

22. We should beseech Allah for all matters, great and small.

 

This is something that many people are neglectful of. You see them turning to Allah and calling upon Him when affliction befalls them. At other times, they do not turn to Allah and ask of Him, seeing the matter to be too insignificant to beseech Allah about it.

 

This is wrong. A Muslim is supposed to ask his Lord for everything. If Allah does not facilitate for us something as simple as, say, the partaking of our food, we would not have the power to eat. If He does not facilitate for us the putting on of our shoes, we would not be able to do so.

 

It is authentically related that `Â’ishah said: “Ask Allah even for the strap of your sandal, for indeed if Allah does not facilitate it, it will not be a simple thing.â€? [Musnad Abî Ya`lâ (4560)]

Narrated Shaddad bin Aus: The Prophet said "The most superior way of asking for forgiveness from Allah is:

 

'Allahumma anta Rabbi la ilaha illa anta, Anta Khalaqtani wa ana abduka, wa ana 'ala ahdika wa wa'dika mastata'tu, A'udhu bika min Sharri ma sana'tu, abu'u Laka bini'matika 'alaiya, wa Abu Laka bidhanbi faghfirli innahu la yaghfiru adhdhunuba illa anta.

 

The Prophet added. "If somebody recites it during the day with firm faith in it, and dies on the same day before the evening, he will be from the people of Paradise; and if somebody recites it at night with firm faith in it, and dies before the morning, he will be from the people of Paradise."

D U A '

 

by Huma Ahmad

 

Dua is defined as any invocation or prayer addressed to

Allah (SWT). 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. Although these temporal things are the means through

which our Duas can be answered, the root of our being should be

trained automatically to turn to Allah and not anything or

anyone else. Through Dua, we strengthen our Imaan and our

relationship with Allah, as well as heighten our awareness of

cause and effect that can help inspire and motivate us to be

closer to Islam in our lives.

 

We find many reassurances throughout the Quran for those

who make Dua. Allah the Exalted, has said: "And your

Lord says: Pray unto me: and I will hear your prayer" (Quran

40:60), "Call upon your Lord Humbly and in secret" (Quran 7:55),

"When My servants question thee concerning Me, I am indeed close

(to them): I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he

calleth on Me" (Quran 2:186), "Is not He (best) who listens to

the (soul) distressed when it calls on Him, and who relieves its

suffering." (Quran 27:62)

 

Aisha radhiallaahu anha said, "No believer makes Dua and

it is wasted. Either it is granted here in this world

or deposited for him in the Hereafter as long as he does not get

frustrated."

 

In fact, it is even wrong to never make Dua, "Whosoever

does not supplicate to Allah, He will be angry with Him."

[saheeh Jaami`as-Sagheer #2414]

 

A Hadith says "Ad-Du'aa Huwal-3ibaadah",[Abu

Dawud,at-Tirmidhi, Hasan Saheeh], Dua is Ibadah so calling

upon anyone other than Allah in one's Dua is Shirk. This

is an important condition of having one's Dua accepted; the Dua

should not be directed to other than Allah alone. A second

condition would be sincerity or Hudoor alqalb, having the heart

present. Also, one's food, drink, clothes and lifestyle should

be Halal. One should avoid unlawful, impious or forbidden

sources or means of livelihood. Fourth, one cannot ask for

something sinful or Haram. Dua should not be made against

family and property (i.e. to sever the ties of kinship).

 

If one asks Allah to curse someone, it rises up to

heaven and goes to the person if they are deserving, if

not it returns to the person supplicating. Patience is another

condition. This perseverance in making Dua is important. One

should not say "Why hasn't Allah answered my Dua" or "I have

prayed and prayed so many times, but the same was not accepted"

and then become disappointed and give up praying. An example of

this is like a person who planted a seed or a sapling, and kept

looking after it and watering it and when its complete shape and

height was slow in coming, they left it and forgot about it.

 

Lastly one should have expectation, belief with

certainty only Allah can answer the Dua. Understanding

dependence on Allah and asking with absolute resolve and

believing with certainty that one's Dua will be answered is a

also a condition of acceptance. One should not say "O Allah do

this...if you wish..." because one should appeal to Allah with

determination, for nobody can force Allah to do something

against his Will. If one fulfills these conditions, Allah will

definitely answer the Dua, avert some equivalent evil or give

better in the Hereafter.

 

We can and should make Dua in every condition, i.e. in

hardship and in prosperity. There are also some special

times to make Dua where it is more likely to be accepted:

 

1. When one is oppressed

2. Between the time of Athan and Iqama

3. At the time of the call for prayer

4. At the time of fighting when warriors are engaged with

each other

5. When it is raining

6. When one is sick

7. The last third of the night

8. Ramadan (especially Lailatul Qadr)

9. After the Fard part of prayer

10. When traveling

11. When breaking fast

12. In Sujood

13. Fridays, some say on Friday after Asr prayer

14. While drinking the water from the well of Zamzam

15. At the start of prayer (Dua of Istiftah)

16. When one begins the prayer, i.e. with "all praise be to

Allah, the Pure and the Blessed one"

17. While one recites al-Fatiha (which is a Dua)

18. When Ameen is said in the prayer (also relating to Fatiha)

19. At the time of raising the head after the Rukoo

20. In the last part of the prayer after conveying blessings

unto the Prophet (SAW)

21. Before finishing the prayer (before Tasleem (saying the

Salaam to the angels))

22. At the end of Wudu

23. On the day of Arafah

24. On waking up from sleep

25. At times of adversity

26. Prayer after the death of a person

27. Dua when someone's heart is filled with sincerity and

when it is focused on Allah

28. Dua of the parent against or for his children

29. When the sun moves from its meridian but before the

Dhuhr prayer

30. The Dua of a Muslim for his brother without the latter's

knowledge

31. At the time the army advances to fight in the way

of Allah.

 

Dua can be beautified and perfected by certain actions:

 

1. Have Wudu, face Qibla, be neat and clean

2. Raise both hands up to the shoulder with palms open facing up

3. Use words of Allah and Muhammad (SAW)-

i.e. Duas found in Quran and Hadith

4. Ask by Asma alHusna- Allah's Beautiful Names

5. Ask Allah by your good deeds

6. Be insistent-repeat (i.e. 3x's)

7. Glorify Allah and recite Durud for the Prophet (SAW) at

both the beginning and end

8. Show humility, entreaty, desire and fear while making Dua

9. Repent and try to make amends where one has wronged

10. Confess mistakes, shortcomings, and sins

11. Keep voice between a whisper and speaking aloud

12. Show the need for Allah's help and implore Him for release

from weakness, hardship and tribulation.

13. Seize the opportunity of time, situation and circumstance in

which prayers are answered

14. Avoid rhymed prose to keep concentration

15. Crying when making Dua

16. The Dua of Dhun-Nun (Yunus) by which he invoked Allah from

within the belly of the whale was: "LAa ilaha illa

Anta, Subhanaka innee kuntu min aDH-DHaalimeen."

No Muslim ever makes Dua with it but Allah

answers it." [at tirmidhi in his sunan, ahmad

and hakim reported it and hakim declared it

authentic and adh dhahabee agreed]

17. End with "Alhamdulillah rabbil alameen"

 

 

We should ask for Dunya things, but not just for the

sake of Dunya itself and for Akhirah things. We should

not ask for punishment to be brought forward in this world or

for early death. We should not curse any particular human being

or animal, abuse a Muslim for no reason, abuse dead people

without cause and religious excuse, or abuse fever or the wind.

We should not make Dua by saying we have been given rain by this

or that star or what Allah willed, and so and so willed. We

should not make Dua against family and property or for sinful

acts and severing the bonds.

 

In the end there can be reasons why the Dua might not be

answered such as not fulfilling conditions like some of

the ones listed above or: Divine Wisdom, trying to hurry the

response of one's Dua, Dua for what is sinful or the breaking

off of relations, eating, drinking, or dressing from what is

Haram, not being resolute in making Dua, abandoning the duty of

enjoining what is good and shunning the evil, the dominance of

unmindfulness, lust and vain desires, not being submissive

during Salah, or committing particular sins (not divorcing a

vile woman, giving a loan without a witness, and a man who gave

his wealth to the foolish)

 

More information on Dua can be found in a book in

English, a translation of Kitaab ud-Du`aa' by Shaykh

al-`Awaa'ishah (published by Jam`iat Ihyaa Minhaaj al-Sunnah),

the Book of Supplications in Al-Bukhari and Riyadh us Saleheen

and Ajawab Alkafi by Imam Shams Adeen Mohamad bin AbiBakr Bin

Qayem Ajawyzeyah. Jazakamullahu khairan to those who corrected

and added to the above compilation. May Allah make us of those

that oft turn to Him in Dua. Ameen

Volume 4, Page 114: Prayer of a Muslim for Another Muslim in his Absence

 

Safwan ibn 'Abdallah reported(Rad Allah anhu) , "I visited Abu Darda's (rad Allah Anu) house in Syria. I did not find him there but Umm Darda (Rad Allah Anha) was present at the house. She asked, 'Do you intend to perform Hajj during this year?' I replied, 'Yes.' She said, 'Do supplicate Allah for us, for Allah's Messenger, :D , used to say, "The supplication of a Muslim for his brother in his absence is accepted when he makes a supplication for blessings for his brother, and the commissioned Angel says, 'Amen, May it be for you too!"" I went to the market and met Abu Darda (RAd Allah Anhu) and he narrated a similar report from Allah' s Messenger :D . (Reported by Muslim and Abu Daw'ud)

 

Abdallah ibn 'Amr ibn al-'As (RAd Allah Anhu) reported that the Prophet, :D , said, "The supplication that gets the quickest answer is the one made by one Muslim for another in his absence.'' (Abu Daw'ud and Tirmizhi)

 

'Umar ibn al-Khattab ( Ard Allah Anhu) reports, "I sought permission of the Prophet, :D , to perform 'Umrah. He :D gave me permission, and said :D , 'My younger brother, do not forget me in your prayers. ' 'Umar ( RAd Allahu Anhu) said, 'It was a word more pleasing to me than the entire wealth of the world'."

We should beseech Allah for our brethren in faith.

 

This is one of the necessities of the brotherhood that we as Muslims are required to uphold. It is also one of the reasons for our supplications being answered. Allah says: “Seek forgiveness for your sins and for the believing men and women.” [sûrah Muhammad: 19]

 

Noah (peace be upon him) said: “My Lord! Forgive me, my parents, all who enter my house in faith, and the believing men and women.” [sûrah Nûh: 28]

 

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Whoever asks forgiveness for the believing men and women, he will have a good deed written to his credit for each and every believing man and woman.” [Majma` al-Zawâ’id (10/210) and graded as good by al-Albânî]

 

It s good to make special mention of our parents, the scholars, the righteous, the devout and those like the rulers whose virtue brings about virtue for all Muslims. It is also preferred to mention the weak and oppressed in our supplications and to beseech Allah against those who oppress and exploit them.

It's really important that people on here really make Dua (in the manner mentioned in the first post), just posting "Ameen" or "May Allah guide you" won't help much.

Assalamu alykum,

 

to all muslim bro & sisters,I need ur dua

 

 

Some Selected Dua

 

A > Beginning :

 

006 Ana’m 79

Verily, I have turned my face towards Him Who has created the heavens and the earth Hanifa (Islâmic Monotheism, i.e. worshipping none but Allâh Alone) and I am not of Al-Mushrikûn.

 

 

014 Ibrahim 40

"O my Lord! Make me one who performs As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât), and (also) from my offspring, our Lord! And accept my invocation.

 

027 Naml 62

Is not He (better than your gods) Who guides you in the darkness of the land and the sea, and Who sends the winds as heralds of glad tidings, going before His Mercy (rain)? Is there any ilâh (god) with Allâh? High Exalted be Allâh above all that they associate as partners (to Him)!

 

040 Mumin 60

And your Lord said: "Invoke Me, [i.e. believe in My Oneness (Islâmic Monotheism)] (and ask Me for anything) I will respond to your (invocation).

 

B > Forgiveness :

 

3 Al imran 147

And they said nothing but:

"Our Lord! Forgive us our sins and our transgressions (in keeping our duties to You), establish our feet firmly, and give us victory over the disbelieving folk."

 

7 Araf 23

They said:

"Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves. If You forgive us not, and bestow not upon us Your Mercy, we shall certainly be of the losers."

 

21 Ambia 87

And (remember) Dhan-Nûn (Jonah), when he went off in anger, and imagined that We shall not punish him (i.e. the calamites which had befallen him)! But he cried through the darkness (saying):

Lâ ilâha illa Anta [none has the right to be worshipped but You (O Allâh)], Glorified (and Exalted) are You [above all that (evil) they associate with You]. Truly, I have been of the wrong-doers."

 

23 muminun 118

And say (O Muhammad SAW):

"My Lord! Forgive and have mercy, for You are the Best of those who show mercy!"

 

28 kasas 16

He said:

"My Lord! Verily, I have wronged myself, so forgive me."

Then He forgave him. Verily, He is the Oft-Forgiving, the Most Merciful.

 

We should practise these dua
