TheRamadhanBaby #10 – Power of Dua

Oft-overlooked, this is an essential part of a Muslim’s life. Our Lord is the Sustainer,Cherisher and Provider of all that exists. If He were to give us all the biggest bounty we can think of, it would not reduce His Wealth by a drop. Why then do we miss opportunities to ask?

Remember all those things we thanked Him for? Ask him to keep replenishing them. And those things we are to be patient upon? Ask that He changes the tide. 

Invocation is the weapon of the believer. With it, you can conquer all and can effect the most change. (Don’t be like the misguided ones who kill innocents for whatever reason)

“Invoke Me (and ask Me for anything) and I will respond ( to your invocation)” Q40:60

Be relentless. Make dua in hardship and ease, in sincerity, for good only, in humility, with His Beautiful Names and exalted Attributes.

Make dua not just when you break your fast, after Asr, in sujood, when its raining, when in difficulty, when you are oppressed, when you are sick, when you are traveling, that special hour on Fridays but in essence, everytime and every situation!

 Make dua for your parents , children, relatives, friends, enemies, strangers. It is the best gift you can give a loved one.

Make dua for all experiencing pain and suffering right now. Make dua for  our  world. Ask Him to protect the planet from all who seek to destroy it. Ask Him to place your departed loved ones in Jannah and for you to be reunited with them in bliss.

Back it up with strong  Iman and Tawakkul, good deeds and character. When you make dua, you either get an answer immefiately or delayed (both at His perfect time) or get an evil prevented. (Sahih At-Tirmidhi 3/140)

He alone should we beseech for help.(Q1:5)
