Dua is approaching Allah for help or for the satisfaction of a specific need. It communicates a slave’s weakness and reliance on Allah, the All-Powerful and Merciful. It is the channel through which one gets legitimately in contact with one’s Creator.
The motivation behind man’s creation is love and as per a Hadeeth, ‘dua is the embodiment of love’. (Tirmizi) And as per another Hadeeth, ‘dua is the love’. (Tirmizi)
Similarly as Salah, Sawm, Zakah, Hajj and so on are demonstrations of love, dua too is a demonstration of love. Thusly similarly as one sets aside out effort to ask Salah or to present the Qur’an or make zikr, correspondingly, concurring equivalent significance to dua, one ought to likewise set aside out adequate effort for dua.
The target behind each demonstration of love is the Recognition of Allah as the Creator and the All-Powerful, and that one demonstrations as indicated by His Will and not as one prefers. A Servant of Allah acknowledges his shortcomings and perceives his requirement for Allah. Out all things considered, this humbleness and complete accommodation is best communicated in dua. Moreover, different demonstrations of love can turn into a wellspring of pride while dua is a demonstration which is generally liberated from any hint of pride.
These days, dua has gotten a simple custom. It has become a normal practice which one is familiar with perform at specific times. Individuals lift their hands for a couple of seconds at the hour of dua, expressing a couple of words, some deliberately, and some without acknowledging what they are requesting.
Today barely anyone resorts to dua for answers for their issues. For a great many people dua is a dedication which is the most hard to rehearse. Indeed, even at the favored spots and in the favored minutes, a brief time involved by duas will appear hours. All around, we find that the commitment in Salah or the recitation of the Qur’an is generally simpler than making dua. This just mirrors our good ways from the Being of Allah, as dua is the main demonstration of love which furnishes us with the chance to speak with Allah in the way we wish. Absence of focus in this demonstration of love shows that the exhibition of different demonstrations of love are additionally standard and shallow, and without the genuine pith. On the off chance that we genuinely appreciated the Proximity of Allah, we would unavoidably have discovered happiness in trusting in Him and entreating Him. We would have consistently felt an energy to go to Him, in open and in isolation.
A large number of us make dua apathetically, not persuaded whether our requests will be replied or not. We should realize that Allah consistently answers the duas of individuals. Notwithstanding, it may not generally appear so and numerous individuals, neglecting to encounter the impacts promptly, start to feel disheartened and put off. This, nonetheless, ought not be the situation, as Allah, the All-Hearing, without a doubt hears and acknowledges the requests of individuals, just that the duas of some are addressed quickly, while those of others are conceded for their own advantage.
One should remember that the acknowledgment of duas additionally relies upon the desires for an individual. Allah manages individuals as per what they expect of Him. In one Hadeeth, the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam has related the accompanying Statement of Allah: ‘I treat my worker as he expects of me…’ (Bukhari, Muslim)
The Ahadeeth likewise reveal to us that duas (given that their imperatives have been satisfied) are acknowledged constantly, yet their acknowledgment is showed in both of the three beneath referenced ways: Sometimes, Allah quickly answers them and favors the searchers with what they have requested; some of the time He substitutes what they have requested with something that in His Knowledge was better for them; or on the other hand, through the gifts of the dua, He eliminates a looming disaster that was to come upon them. Now and again, neither of the above may unfold, however on such events, the dua is prized for the Hereafter. These unanswered duas will bear أذكار المسلم so much prize that an individual, on the Day of Qiyamah, will wish that none of his duas were acknowledged on the planet. (Kanzul ‘Ummal) Abstaining from haram (dress, food, pay, and so on.) is another basic imperative for the acknowledgment of dua. The Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam once went on about an individual who ventures generally, his hair tousled and secured with dust. He lifts his hands towards the sky (and in this way makes the petition): “O Lord, O Lord,” at that point the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam stated, “Yet his eating regimen is unlawful, his beverage is unlawful, his garments are unlawful and his sustenance is unlawful. How at that point can his petition be acknowledged?” (Muslim)
By remembering the accompanying barely any focuses concerning dua, insha’allah, one will profit extraordinarily. Right off the bat one ought to recall that dua is a demonstration of love and ought to be given its very own free status. It ought not stay a simple custom.
Furthermore, one should make dua subsequent to playing out all great deeds, for example, Salah, recitation of Qur’an, zikr and so forth., and furthermore fix a particular time particularly for dua. In dua, one ought to receive modesty and guarantee that one comprehends what is being inquired. The time spent in dua ought to be step by step extended. In the underlying stages, the equivalent duascan be rehashed again and again, and meanwhile increasingly more duas ought to be retained. An exertion ought to be made to become familiar with those duas specifically which incorporate the overall need of the apparent multitude of Muslims.
