A young mans Ramadan Du’aa List

❝I know a young man who every Ramaḍān lists the things that he wants to ask Allāh for and he hopes to see realised. Then he prays for them at all those times that prayers are likely to be answered (during fuṭūr, in Qiyām, in sujūd…)

He says, “The next Ramaḍān doesn’t come except that Allāh has answered a whole set of my duʿās.”

Over the years much of his hopes and dreams were realised in this way and many of his worries were relieved and Allāh answered a lot of his duʿās.

He says, “In these last few years, I’ve started to take a different approach in duʿāʾ; so I thank Allāh for all that He is given me and realised for me and I continue to pray for the things that I still need.”❞

-— Sheikh Sulṭān al-ʿUmairī

Abundance For 4 Habits In Ramadan

Abundance For 4 Habits In Ramadan

Shaykh Uthaymeen [رحمه الله] said:

❝Focus on asking Allaah in abundance for four habits in Ramadan, two which are pleasing to Allaah and two which are a necessity.

As for the two which are pleasing to your Lord:

• The first is the Shahada, La ilaha ilallaah

• The second is seeking repentance

As for the two which are a necessity, they are asking Allaah for Paradise and seeking refuge in Allaah from the fire.

Make sure that you focus on supplications.❞

[Ad-Diyya Al-Laamih, (Page: 362) | Translated By Umm Yahya]

Sandal Strap to Jannah: Six Step Guide to Powerful Dua

• 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:

  1. Yes
  2. Not yet
  3. 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”
(Al- Baqarah:186)

Six Words & Thirty Angels

img_6963

(This is so beautiful; we should all make an effort to memorise this super short du’aa so as to ensure we also earn the reward.)

“One day we were praying behind the Prophet ﷺ
and when he raised his head from rukoo’, he said, ‘Sami Allah liman hamidah (Allah hears those who praise Him).’

A man behind him said,

‘Rabbana wa laka’l-hamd hamdan katheeran tayyiban mubaarakan fihi (Our Lord, to You be praise, much good and blessed praise).’

When the prophet (peace be upon him) finished the prayer he said, ‘Who was the one who spoke?’

The man said: ‘Me.’

The Prophet said: ‘I saw thirty-odd angels rushing to see which of them would write it down first.’ “ [Bukhari, 2/284]

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…

13645177_10208204389165280_3585359329993254656_n

 

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]

Shaykh. ‘Abdul-Muhsin al-Qasim

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.
