We make Dua to Allah with the hopes of having our deepest desires for this world and the next to materialise, but it’s easy to forget the etiquettes involved in this important form of worship! – We’ve made a short video that provides you with 5 key tips that you can make use of this Ramadan and beyond. Read below for some expanded tips provided by Aalimah Rumaysah: – 🔹 When you make Dua you get 2 things: 1. Reward of doing an act of worship 2. The thing you asked for. 🔹 Ask about / ask for EVERYTHING. A scholar used to ask Allah even when he was in need of a new shoelace. Dont think something is too minor / insignificant etc to ask for. We need Allah for even the most basic things. 🔹 When you make Dua, one of the following 3 things happens: 1. Ok, you can have what you asked for… 2. Ok, you can have what you asked for, but not now… 3. Have this thing instead, its actually even better. 🔹 Pray salawaat alannabi at the start and end of your Dua: salawaat is never rejected, and the idea is that again: Allah wont reject some part of your Dua and accept other parts. 🔹Ask for things relating to your deen and aakhirah first then ask about things relating to your dunya. Showing that the things relating to the aakhirah are the most important things. 🔹 Sometimes Allah delays giving you the thing you’ve asked for, because He wants you to keep asking Him. 🔹Talk to Allah and make it your conversation. Remember He knows what's in the deepest parts of your heart, and He loves for you to ask Him. 🔹Make dua for yourself first and then for others. Making Dua for others makes it more likely that yours will be accepted: Allah doesnt reject some part of your dua and acceptothers, and the hadith says one of the most accepted duas is a dua for your muslim bro/sis in their absence. 🔹 It’s important to point out that yes, though Duas in these times are more likely to be accepted, it does not mean that if you need to ask Allah for something that you should delay asking until these times. Allah is Ever-present and Ever-hearing, Ever-willing and eager to answer our Duas. Ask anytime all the time.
