He Will Attain By Du’aa What He Cannot Attain Without Du’aa

 

وقال شيخ الإسلام ابن تيمية – كما في “مجموع الفتاوى”
ومن قال : أنا لا أدعو ولا أسأل اتكالاً على القدر ، كان مخطئًا أيضًا ؛ لأن الله جعل الدعاء
والسؤال من الأسباب التي ينال بها مغفرته ورحمته وهداه ونصره ورزقه ، وإذا قدر للعبد خيرًا يناله بالدعاء لم يحصل بدون الدعاء ، وما قدره الله وعلمه من أحوال العباد وعواقبهم فإنما قدره الله بأسباب ، يسوق المقادير إلى المواقيت ، فليس في الدنيا والآخرة شيء إلا بسبب ، والله خالق الأسباب والمسببات .
فمحو الأسباب أن تكون أسبابا نقص في العقل

If a person says that he does not make supplication because he relies on the divine decree, he is also erring, because Allah has made du’aa and asking means of attaining His forgiveness, mercy, guidance, support and provision.

If good is decreed for a person he will attain by du’aa what he cannot attain without du’aa. What Allah has decreed and knows with regard to His slaves’ circumstances and destinies is only decreed on the basis of means and decrees will be fulfilled at the appointed times.

There is nothing that happens in this world or in the Hereafter except on the basis of cause and effect; Allah is the Creator of both cause and effect. Disregarding the principle of cause and effect is contrary to reason.

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah ~ Majmu al-Fatawa (8/69)
