Dua is said to be the acceptance of the variation between God and the human being existence. It is an ultimate connection between the Creator and HIS believer through which human can pour out all their concerns and ask anything they want with a firm faith. It is the link which satisfies the nature of human beings of being taken care of and dependency that require a constant favor and bestowal from his Lord who is the prime source of everything.

Dear brothers and sisters, i want to tell you that a close uncle of mine passed away due to a sudden cardiac arrest today. He was very young (about 32) and he smoked and did not offer prayers alot. But he loved his family very much. He was a spendthrift person but he spent alot for his family. He had been having a financial crisis and was struggling for alot of time. He dearly loved our Prophet (pbuh) and Imam Ali, his namesake. Please, brothers, please pray for him and add your pleas to mine own.

The following is what ibn Katheer (Rahimahullah) said regarding the Dua in the last ayah of Surathul Baqarah
"........Allah then said, mentioning what the believers said while direct ing His servants to supplicate
to Him, all the while promising them that He will answer their supplicat ion:
("Our Lord! Push us not if we forget or fall into error, '') meaning, "If we forgot an obligat ion or
fell into a prohibit ion, or made an error while ignorant of its ruling. '' We ment ioned the Hadith
by Abu Hurayrah, that Muslim collected, wherein Al lah said, "I shall (accept your supplicat ion). ''
There is also the Hadith by Ibn ` Abbas that Allah said, "I did (accept your supplicat ion). ''
(Our Lord! Lay not on us a burden like that which You did lay on those before us (Jews and
Christ ians), ) means, "Even if we were able to perform them, do not require us to perform the
dif f icult deeds as You required the previous nat ions before us, such as the burdens that were
placed on them. You sent Your Prophet Muhammad , the Prophet of mercy, to abrogate these
burdens through the Law that You revealed to him, the Hanif i (Islamic Monotheism), easy
religion. '' Muslim recorded that Abu Hurayrah said that the Messenger of Allah said that Allah
said, "I shall (accept your supplicat ion). '' Ibn ` Abbas narrated that the Messenger of Allah said
that Allah said, "I did (accept your supplicat ion). '' There is the Hadith recorded through various
chains of narrat ion that the Messenger of Allah said,
(I was sent with the easy Hanif iyyah way. )
(Our Lord! Put not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear) of obligations,
hardships and af f lict ions, do not make us bear what we cannot bear of this.
(Our Lord! Put not on us a burden greater than we have st rength to bear. )
We ment ioned that Allah said, "I shall (accept your supplicat ion)'' in one narrat ion, and, "I did
(accept your supplicat ion), '' in another narrat ion.
(Pardon us) meaning, between us and You regarding what You know of our shortcomings and
(And grant us forgiveness) concerning what is between us and Your servants. So do not expose
our errors and evil deeds to them.
(Have mercy on us) in what will come thereaf ter. Therefore, do not allow us to fall into
another error. They say that those who commit error need three things: Allah's forgiveness for
what is between Him and them, that He conceals these errors f rom His other servants, and thus
does not expose them before the servants, and that He grants them immunity f rom further
error. '' We ment ioned before that Allah answered these pleas, "I shall, '' in one narrat ion and, "I
did, '' in another narrat ion.
(You are our Mawla) meaning, You are our supporter and helper, our t rust is in You, You are
sought for each and every type of help and our total reliance is on You. There is no power or
st rength except f rom You.
(And give us victory over the disbelieving people) those who rej ected Your religion, denied
Your Oneness, refused the Message of Your Prophet , worshipped other than You and associated
others in Your worship. Give us victory and make us prevail above them in this and the
Hereaf ter. Allah said, "I shall, '' in one narrat ion, and, "I did, '' in the Hadith that Muslim
collected f rom Ibn ` Abbas.
Further, Ibn Jarir recorded that Abu Ishaq said that whenever Mu` adh would f inish recit ing this
(And give us victory over the disbelieving people), he would say "Amin.'' .................... "
The Idiot's Guide To 'Karma'
According to Wikipedia, the term 'Karma' means "the concept of "action" or "deed", understood as that which causes the entire cycle of cause and effect originating in ancient India and treated in the Hindu, Jain, Buddhist and Sikh religions."
or simply 'what goes around comes around' (A person's actions, whether good or bad, will often have consequences for that person.). In Islam, this statement can be explained as 'Allah's Justice' or 'rewards and punishments of actions in this world and on Judgment Day'.
Ten examples of 'karma':
`1. Girl 1 keeps making fun of girl 2 about girl 2's acne. After several years, girl 1 is awarded with dozens of pimples all over her face for being previously unkind and stuck up.
2. A teenage girl simply thinks that an old woman's urine problems are 'just weird'. Years pass by and the girl suffers from the same sickness that old lady suffered.
3. Two best friends refuse the friendship of a girl they don't like. After a long time, the two intimate friends break up and have no plans of talking to each other again. That is God's justice for their refusal of allowing that girl to join their clique.
4. An older guy keeps bullying a young kid, and also encourages other kids to bully that little boy. When the guy grows up into an adult and marries, he finds out that he is permanently sterile.
5. A non-Muslim man, driving his car, deliberately collides with another car, just because the family in that car are Muslim. The Muslims keep praying/making du'as against that non-Muslim until one day the non-Muslim guy suffers from a car accident, falls off a cliff while no one hears his cries. God's justice for that non-Muslim's injustice.
6. A bunch of non-Muslim students who keep insulting a Muslim woman for her niqaab, lying about her being 'lonely' -when the non-Muslim men, after so many years, become old-aged/senile, their own kids send them away to an old people's home where they experience the loneliness of being abandoned by their own family, who completely forgot about them and became Muslims.
7. A man who has stolen many things in the past and who never returned anything he borrowed, now has others stealing from his belongings. What you do unto others, God (Allah) too may return your actions someday to you.
8. A girl who keeps doing bad things to other girls at school, calling some girls 'ugly' and acting like a bully, ends up being abused almost daily by her older brother(s) when she reaches her teens. The supplications of the girls' parents against that non-Muslim girl was answered.
9. A man who intentionally blocks water from reaching a town or village -what he prevented others from having, God (Allah) may likewise prevent him at a time when that man may need it the most.
10. A non-Muslim laughs at a Muslim woman's predicament. Some time in the future, that man undergoes the exact same thing the woman went through. So basically, any bad thing you do to a Muslim will surely come back to you. Likewise, any good thing you do to a Muslim may lead to Allah having mercy on you. Allah knows best.
Be careful of the supplications/du'as of the Muslims you mistreat (treat badly) lest their du'as/prayers against you are answered by Allah in this world and/or on Judgment Day. If one du'a of a Muslim can change the life of an evil wrongdoing non-Muslim, how much more if so many oppressed Muslims pray against some non-Muslims who unjustly took away their lands, belongings etc.?
That non-Muslim, he laughs at the Muslim and thinks he's smart
But little does he (the non-Muslim) know... that Allah may be laughing too
At how foolish he is for his sins and disbelief
That his evil deeds are just his means to entering Hell
For the evil he was and the evil he used to do
He thinks he's all that, but to God (Allah) and the angels that man is nothing
To all created things and e'en the inanimate, that atheist is nothing
So ignore his insults which are only a sign of his insecurity, don't listen to him
Until he returns to Allah and vows to be a true and sincere Muslim.
It was narrated that Allah's Messenger Muhammad (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said: "God (Allah) is only merciful with those who show mercy to others." (Al-Bukhârî) and "Be merciful to those on the earth, so the One (Allah) above the heavens will be merciful to you." one of the signs of Allah's mercy on someone is when He (Allah) guides that person to what leads to Heaven, in other words Islam.
