• Sandal Strap to Jannah: Six Step Guide to Powerful Dua •
Sh. Muhammad al Shareef
Step one: Believe
The Prophet (Peace be upon him) said: “You should ask Allah for all of your needs, even if the strap of your sandal breaks” (Tirmidhi).
Step Two: Get Inspired
As adults, sometimes we forget to ask for the simple things. But Allah wants you to turn to Him for all your needs, great and small.
Step Three: Select Your Dreams
Do you only turn to Allah in dua and reflection in painful moments? If you only make duas based on situations of pain, one of the two scenarios can happen: If Allah wishes good for you, He will continue giving you pain so that you may turn to Him. Otherwise, He will grant you blessings and you will get lost in heedlessness. Let your dua be proactive and not reactive! “Remember Allah during times of ease and He will remember you during times of difficulty.” (Tirmidhi)
Step Four: Internalize & Memorize your Duas
Step Five: Start the Dua Habit
If you’re not seeing results in your life, don’t lower your standards, raise your dua!
Step Six: Revise & Renew Allah always responds to dua, but it can be in one of the three ways:
- Not yet
- I have something better for you
“When my servants ask you concerning me, I am indeed close , I listen to the prayer of every supplicant when he calls on me”
