Dua is approaching Allah for help or for the satisfaction of a specific need. It communicates a slave’s vulnerability and reliance on Allah, the All-Powerful and Merciful. It is the channel through which one gets legitimately in contact with one’s Creator.
The reason for man’s creation is love and as indicated by a Hadeeth, ‘dua is the pith of love’. (Tirmizi) And as indicated by another Hadeeth, ‘dua is the love’. (Tirmizi)
Similarly as Salah, Sawm, Zakah, Hajj and so forth are demonstrations of love, dua too is a demonstration of love. Along these lines similarly as one sets aside out effort to supplicate Salah or to recount the Qur’an or make zikr, correspondingly, concurring equivalent significance to dua, one ought to likewise set aside out adequate effort for dua.
The target behind each demonstration of love is the Recognition of Allah as the Creator and the All-Powerful, and that one demonstrations as indicated by His Will and not as one prefers. A Servant of Allah acknowledges his shortcomings and perceives his requirement for Allah. Out everything being equal, this humbleness and all out accommodation is best communicated in dua. Besides, different demonstrations of love can turn into a wellspring of pride while dua is a demonstration which is generally free from any hint of pride.
These days, dua has gotten a negligible custom. It has become a standard practice which one is acquainted with perform at specific occasions of the day. Individuals lift their hands for a couple of seconds at the hour of dua, articulating a couple of words, some intentionally, and some without acknowledging what they are requesting.
Today barely anyone resorts to dua for answers for their issues. For the vast majority dua is a dedication which is the most hard to rehearse. Indeed, even at the favored spots and in the favored minutes, a brief time involved by duas will appear hours. All things considered, we find that the commitment in Salah or the recitation of the Qur’an is generally simpler than making dua. This just mirrors our good ways from the Being of Allah, as dua is the main demonstration of love which furnishes اذكار الصباح والمساء us with the chance to speak with Allah in the way we wish. Absence of fixation in this demonstration of love shows that the exhibition of different demonstrations of love are likewise standard and shallow, and without the genuine substance. In the event that we genuinely delighted in the Proximity of Allah, we would unavoidably have discovered pleasure in trusting in Him and importuning Him. We would have consistently felt an energy to go to Him, in open and in isolation.
A large number of us make dua irresolutely, not persuaded whether our requests will be replied or not. We should realize that Allah consistently answers the duas of individuals. In any case, it may not generally appear to be so and numerous individuals, neglecting to encounter the impacts quickly, start to feel blue and put off. This, be that as it may, ought not be the situation, as Allah, the All-Hearing, without a doubt hears and acknowledges the supplications of individuals, just that the duas of some are addressed quickly, while those of others are conceded for their own advantage.
