Start with Yourself First 

 It’s befitting for the individual that when he makes du’a, he starts with himself first. 

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaimeen, Sharh Alfiyyah Ibn Malik (p. 43)

Don’t Abandon Duaa

Don’t abandon duaa. Don’t prevent yourself from making duaa because of what you know of yourself for Allah answered the duaa of Iblees and he’s the worst of creation”. ~ Sufyan bin Ayayna rahimahullah

When it rains…

I’ve learned that several people experienced acceptance of their du’as at the times of iqamah and when it rains.

And Then He Responded…

Qur’anic Gem: In the last four verses of Surah al Imran, each verse starts with ‘Rabbana’ (O our Lord) followed by a request, thus each verse is in fact a du’a. What is the result? Directly after these four verses Allah says ‘And their Lord responded to them …’

Persist in your du’a, knowing that Allah will respond to you.

— By Shaykh Ahmed Eesa al Ma’sarawi

The Du`a of Relief

13645177_10208204389165280_3585359329993254656_nThe scholars have said, ‘None distressed makes this du’a except Allah grants him relief:

la ilaha illa anta subhanak, inne kuntu min adh dhalimeen

لا اله إلا أنت سبحانك إني كنت من الظالمين

“There is no deity worthy of worship but You! Glory be to You! Truly I have been one of the wrongdoers.” [Quran – 21: 87]

Conditions for du’a to be accepted

Shaikh Ibn ‘Uthaimeen:
The first condition.
Sincerity to Allah.

The person is sincere in his du’a.

Knowing that Allah is All-capable to answer his du’a.

Expecting the response from Allah.

Second condition.
The person’s aware of his situation when supplicating.

That he’s in the most dire need, rather in the most dire necessity for Allah.

(Believing) that Allah’s the One who answers the call of the one in distress if he calls to Him and removes the evil.

As for supplicating to Allah and he feels he is independent of Allah, and that he’s not in necessity and he asks Him like this, a custom only, then this is not likely to be answered.

Third condition.
That he avoids consuming haraam.

For surely, haraam is a barrier between a person and the answer of du’a.
