Introduction

The word du'a in Arabic means "calling" - the act of remembering Allah Subhan
Ta'ala and calling upon Him.

Aside from the daily pray ers, Muslims are encouraged to call upon Allah Subha
Ta'ala for forgiv eness, guidance, and strength throughout the day . Muslims ca
personal supplications or pray ers (du'a) in their own words, in any language, b
are also recommended ex amples from the Qur'an al kareem and Sunnah.

The Power of Dua

The dua can change our life, our outlook, and our fate.
It is the most potent weapon of a believer.

The Power of Dua By Khalid Baig

www.islam786.org/powerofdua.htm 5/76
12/20/2010 SHAYKH AL ISLAM | JANASHEEN - MU…
Once Prophet Muhammad passed by a people who were suffering from
some affliction. "Why don't they make du'a (pray ) to Allah for protection," he
said. With all the suffering and disasters Muslims are facing in various parts o
world, the question can be directed to all of us today.

It is not that we have forgotten du'a completely; we refer to it regularly. But, o


ideas and practice regarding dua have become distorted. Often it is reduced to
the level of a ritual. Generally it is considered when all our efforts have failed
an act of last resort. It is belittled through actions and sometimes even with
words. Is it any wonder that today mostly a mention of du'a is meant to indica
the hopelessness of a situation.

What a tragedy, for du'a is the most potent weapon of a believer. It can chang
fate, while no action of ours ever can. It is the essence of ibadah or worship.
it we can never fail; without it we can never succeed. In the proper scheme o
things, du'a should be the first and the last resort of the believer, with all his
plans and actions coming in between.

Du'a is conversation with Allah, out Creator, our Lord and Master, the All
Knowing, the All Powerful. This act in itself is of extraordinary significance. It i
the most uplifting, liberating, empowering, and transforming conversation a
person can ever have. We turn to Him because we know that He alone can lift
sufferings and solve our problems. We feel relieved after describing our
difficulties to our Creator. We feel empowered after having communicated wit
the All Mighty. We sense His mercy all around us after talking to the Most
Merciful. We get a new commitment to follow His path for that is the only path
success. We feel blessed with each such commitment.

In every difficulty our first action is du'a, as is our last. We ask Allah to show u
the way to handle that difficulty; we seek His help in following the path He sho
to us; we seek His aid in making our efforts successful. When we fall sick, we
know that we cannot find the right doctor without His Will; that the best docto
may not be able to diagnose our condition without His Command; that the bes
treatment plan will not succeed without His Permission. We make du'a for all o
these. We make du'a before we seek medical help, while we are receiving it a
after it has been delivered. The same is true of all other difficulties we may
encounter.

Du'a is the essence of ibadah. A person engaged in du'a affirms his belief in
Tawheed (monotheism) and shuns belief in all false gods. With each du'a his
belief in Allah grows. He beseeches Him, affirming his own powerlessness. A
person seriously and sincerely engaged in dua understands exactly the
relationship between himself and the Creator and affirms it through his action
That is the essence of worship! Additionally, such a person can never become
arrogant or proud, a logical result of true worship.

Du'a is our most potent weapon in all struggles of life as well as in jihad in the
battlefield. During the battle of Badr, the Prophet Muhammad stood up al
night in prayer seeking Allah's help in the battle between unequal armies that
would follow the next day. In the decisive battles against the crusaders, Sultan
Salatuddin Ayyubi was busy day and night. His days were devoted to Jihad. His
nights were spent making du'a, crying, seeking Allah's help. This was the prac
of all true mujahideen.

We should make it a point to make du'a for all things big and small. It is the
beginning of wisdom to realize that big and small are arbitrary labels that are
totally irrelevant in this context. Nothing is too big for Whom we are asking fro
nothing is too small for the one who is asking. That is why we have been taug
www.islam786.org/powerofdua.htm 6/76
12/20/2010 SHAYKH AL ISLAM | JANASHEEN - MU…
to ask Allah when we need something as small as shoelaces. We should ask a
beggar, as a destitute person, for that is what we in reality are in relationship
Allah. At the same time we should ask with great hope and conviction that we
shall be granted our prayers. We should remember the Hadith: "There is noth
more dear to Allah than a servant making dua to Him." On the other hand, a
prayer lacking concentration and conviction is no prayer at all.

We should make dua at all times, not only during times of distress. The Proph
Muhammad said: "Whosoever desires that Allah answers his duas in
unfavorable and difficult conditions, he should make plentiful dua in days of ea
and comfort." Also he said: "The person who does not ask from Allah, Allah
becomes angry with him."

We should ask for all of our needs: those related to this world as well as thos
related to the Hereafter. Those who only concentrate on the former are, in eff
announcing that they don't care for their life in the permanent abode. They sh
blame no body but themselves for the total ruin in that world that Qur'an assu
us awaits them. Those who only concentrate on the later are also showing lac
balance, for we need Allah's help to lead a good life here as well.

We should make dua not only for ourselves but also for our parents, brothers
sisters, spouses and children, relatives and friends, teachers and other
benefactors, and destitute and struggling Muslims everywhere. We should pra
for them for the good in this world as well as in the Hereafter. The Prophet
said: "The dua of a Muslim for his brother (in Islam) in his absence is readily
accepted. An angel is appointed to his side. Whenever he makes a beneficial d
for his brother the appointed angel says, 'Aameen. And may you also be bless
with the same.'" [Sahih Muslim]

In the dark ages that we are living in today, everyday brings fresh news about
atrocities committed against our brothers in Palestine, Kashmir, India,
Afghanistan, Iraq, Chechnya, Lebanon and the list goes on. And what do we d
We can continue to just feel frustrated and depressed. We can petition the
determined perpetrators or a fictional "International Community". We can just
forget all this and move on to some other subject. Or we can stand up before
Allah and pray for His help, who alone can help. The dua can change our life,
outlook, and our fate. It is the most potent weapon. But it works only for those
who try sincerely and seriously to use it.

Dua is conversation with Allah … It is the most uplifting, liberating, empowerin


and transforming conversation a person can ever have.

The best times to pray Du'a

There are certain times du'a (supplication) is more likely to be accepted by Alla
Subhanahu w a Ta'ala as mentioned by the Most Belov ed to Allah Salla Allahu
w a 'aalihi w a Sallam. These times are as follows:

T he Last T hird Of T he Night

Hadrat Abu Hurairah Radi Allahu anhu narrated that Allah’s Messenger Salla A
'alayhi w a 'aalihi w a Sallam said: 'In the last third of ev ery night our Rabb (Che
and Sustainer) (Allah Subhanahu w a ta'ala) descends to the lowermost heav en
"Who is calling Me, so that I may answer him? Who is asking Me so that may I gr
Who is seeking forgiv eness from Me so that I may forgiv e him?."' [Sahih al-Bukh
Hadith Qudsi]

Hadrat Amr ibn Absah narrated that the Most Belov ed Prophet Salla A llahu 'al
'aalihi w a Sallam said: 'The closest any worshipper can be to His Lord is during
part of the night, so if y ou can be amongst those who remember A llah at that tim
do so.'[at-Tirmidhi, an-Nasa'i, al-Hakim - Sahih]

Late at night

When people are sleeping and busy with worldly pleasures Allah Subhanahu w
giv es the believ ers an opportunity , or an answer hour if they can fight sleep and
Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala for whatev er they need. The Prophet Salla Allahu 'al
'aalihi w a Sallam said: 'There is at night an hour, no Muslim happens to be askin
any matter of this world or the Hereafter, ex cept that he will be giv en it, and thi

ev ery night.' [Muslim #7 57 ]

Between Adhan and Iqam ah

Hadrat Anas Radi Allahu anhu narrated that Allah’s Belov ed Messenger Salla A
'alayhi w a 'aalihi w a Sallam said: 'A supplication made between the Adhan and
not rejected.'
[Ahmad, abu Dawud #521 , at-Tirmidhi #21 2, Sahih al-Jami #3408, an-Nasai an
Hibban graded it sahih (sound)]

An Hour On Friday

Narrated A bu Hurairah Radi Allahu anhu : A llah’s Messenger Salla Allahu 'alay
'aalihi w a Sallam talked about Friday and said: 'There is an hour on Friday and
Muslim gets it while offering Salat (pray er) and asks something from Allah Subh
ta'ala, then A llah Subhanahu w a ta'ala will definitely meet his demand.' And h
Prophet Salla Allahu 'alayhi w a 'aalihi w a Sallam pointed out the shortness of
particular time with his hands.[Sahih al-Bukhari]

Some hav e said that this hour is from the time the Imam (pray er’s leader) enter
mosque on Friday ’s pray er until the pray er is ov er (ie between the two khutbah
whereas others hav e said that it is the last hour of the day (ie after the A sr pray
the Maghrib pray er).

While Drinking Zam zam Water

Hadrat Jaber Radi Allahu anhu narrated that A llah’s Messenger Salla Allahu 'a
'aalihi w a Sallam said: 'Zamzam water is for what it is drunk for.' [Ahmad 3: 357
Majah #3062]. This means that when y ou drink Zamzam water y ou may ask A ll
Subhanahu w a ta'ala for any thing y ou like to gain or benefit from this water su
healing from illness.... etc.

While Prostrating

Hadrat Abu Hurairah Radi Allahu anhu narrated that Allah’s Messenger Salla A
'alayhi w a 'aalihi w a Sallam, said: 'The nearest a slav e can be to his Lord is whe
prostrating, so inv oke (supplicate) Allah Subhanahu w a ta'ala much in it. [Mus
Dawud, an-Nasa'i and others, Sahih al-Jami #1 1 7 5]

When a Muslim is in his Salat (pray er) he is facing A llah Subhanahu w a ta'ala a
he prostrates he is the nearest he can be to Allah Subhanahu w a ta'ala so it is b

Allahumma ighfir li (O Allah! Forgiv e me) or inv okes Allah Subhanahu w a ta'al

will be accepted. [Sahih al-Bukhari]

At T he End Of T he Obligatory Salat:

Narrated A bu Omamah Radi A llahu anhu : that A llah’s Belov ed Messenger Salla
'alayhi w a 'aalihi w a Sallam was asked, O Messenger of Allah, which supplicati
heard (by Allah Subhanahu w a ta'ala, he said the end of the night and at the en
obligatory Salat (pray er) [at-Tirmidhi]. This time is after say ing 'A t-tahy at' , and
making Tasleem (finishing pray er).

T he Night Of 'Qadr' (Decree)

This night is the greatest night of the y ear. This is the night which the almighty A
Subhanahu w a ta'ala said about it, "The night of A l-Qadar (Decree) is better tha
thousand months." [Surah al-Qadr, 97 : 3]

The Night of Decree is one of the odd nights of the last ten nights of the blessed m
Ramadan. The angels descend down to the earth, and the earth is ov erwhelmed
peace and serenity until the break of dawn and when he doors of Paradise are o
worshipper is encouraged to turn to Allah to ask for his needs for this world and
Hereafter.

During T he Rain

Salla Allahu 'alayhi w a 'aalihi w a Sallam said: 'Two will not be rejected, Suppli
when the A dhan (call of pray er) is being called, and at the time of the rain'. [A l-H

'Seek the response to y our du'as when the armies meet, and the pray er is called
rain falls' [reported by Imam al-Shafi' in al-Umm, al-Sahihah #1 469]. The time o
is a time of mercy from Allah Subhanahu w a ta'ala so, one should take adv anta
time when Allah Subhanahu w a ta'ala is hav ing mercy on His slav es.

At the Adhan

'Seek the response to y our du'as when the armies meet, and the pray er is called
rain falls' [reported by Imam al-Shafi' in al-Umm, al-Sahihah #1 469]

In another hadith; 'When the pray er is called, the doors of the skies are opened,

Ibn Jabal (RA), 'Beware of the supplication of the unjustly treated, because ther
shelter or v eil between it (the supplication of the one who is suffering injustice)
Subhanahu w a ta'ala' [Sahih Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

The Belov ed Messenger Salla Allahu 'alayhi w a 'aalihi w a Sallam declared, 'Th
whose du'a is nev er rejected (by Allah) are: the fasting person until he breaks hi
another narration, when he breaks fast), the just ruler and the one who is
oppressed.'[Ahmad, at-Tirmidhi - Hasan]

In another hadith; The Belov ed Messenger Salla Allahu 'alayhi w a 'aalihi w a S


declared: 'Three du'as are surely answered: The du'a of the oppressed, the du'a o
trav eler, and the du'a of the father/mother (upon their child)'. The One who is s
injustice is heard by Allah Subhanahu w a ta'ala when he inv okes Allah Subhan
ta'ala to retain his rights from the unjust one or oppressor. A llah Subhanahu w
has sworn to help the one who is suffering from injustice sooner or later as the M
of Allah Salla Allahu 'alayhi w a 'aalihi w a Sallam said.

T he T rav eller

The Most Belov ed of Allah Salla Allahu 'alayhi w a 'aalihi w a Sallam said; Thre
supplications will not be rejected (by Allah Subhanahu w a ta'ala), the supplica
parent for his child, the supplication of the one who is fasting, and the supplicat
trav eler. [al-Bay haqi, at-Tirmidhi - Sahih]

During trav el supplication is heard by Allah Subhanahu w a ta'ala if the trip is f


reason, but if the trip is for a bad intention or to perform illegal things (making
