“The least you can do is duʿāʾ”
NO! The MOST you can do is duʿāʾ; the GREATEST you can do is duʿāʾ.
Never underestimate the power of duʿāʾ!
Duʿāʾ is not a series of blank, meaningless words uttered half-heartedly by the tongue; it’s when your heart is in sync with your tongue is in sync with your actions — that’s a recipe for a successful duʿāʾ.
As the great ʿOmar b. al-Khaṭṭāb used to say,
❝I’m not worried about receiving an answer but I’m worried about being able to invoke Allāh successfully.❞
Shortcomings in asking are our own, because Allāh has promised that He will answer.
﴾Is He [not best] who responds to the desperate one when he calls upon Him and removes evil…?!﴿ an-Naml:62
