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

Literally the word Dua means “to call upon.” In Islam Dua or supplication means to address Allah (SWT) with praise, thanksgiving, hope, and to mention one’s needs.

etiquette for making dua

Etiquette for making Dua.

Just like when we speak to a dignitary, or head of a state, we use certain language; follow the protocol to get proper attention and response. Similarly there are formulas and language taught by the Quran, the Prophet (S.A.W.) and his progeny, and the Imams to make Dua.

The guidance from the Quran, the Prophet and the Imams (A.S.) about making Dua can be summarized as follows:• Address Allah (SWT) directly and mention your needs, difficulties and distresses.• Praise and glorify Allah before making the Dua. Seek His nearness and good pleasure; and remember that making Dua is also an act of worship.• Before and after making Dua send peace and blessings on the Prophet and his progeny peace be upon them all

making dua lets us seek allah s attention

Making dualets us seek Allah’s attention.

Allah (SWT) has commanded in Quran that we should make Dua to Him.

.It has been reported that the prophet (S.A.W.) related that Allah (SWT) says: “O My servants, all of you are misguided except him whom I guide, so ask Me for guidance, and I will guide you. All of you are poor except whom I enrich, so ask Me for riches, and I will provide for you. All of you are sinners except him whom I release, so ask Me to forgive you, and I will forgive you.”

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

“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)…”

Lose hope in the effectiveness and powers of our Dua.

About the matter of Dua’s not being answered. Ibn al-Jawzi in one of his books commented .

I think part of the test is when a believer supplicates and receives no response, and he repeats the dua for a long time and sees no sign of a response. He should realize that this is a test and needs patience.

  • It was narrated that Faddalahibn ‘Ubayd said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) heard a man making dua after his prayer, but he did not send blessings upon the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “This man is in a hurry.” Then he called him and said to him or to someone else: “When any one of you has finished praying (and makes dua), let him start by praising Allah, then let him send blessings upon the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), then after that let him ask for whatever he wants.” Al-Albani said: it is a saheehhadeeth. (SaheehSunan al-Tirmidhi, 2765.
