Sunnats and Aadaab of Duaa – Part 4

Roses 41. When making duaa one should beg Allah Ta’ala for his needs with complete hope that Allah Ta’ala will answer his duaa. One should not adopt an approach of uncertainty. One should not say: “O Allah, if you wish to fulfil my need, then You may fulfil it.” [1]

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال لا يقل أحدكم اللهم اغفر لي إن شئت ارحمني إن شئت ارزقني إن شئت وليعزم مسألته إنه يفعل ما يشاء لا مكره له. (البخاري رقم 7477)

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “(When making Duaa) one should not say ‘O Allah, forgive me if You wish, have mercy on me if You wish, provide me with sustenance if You wish.’ Rather he should beg of Allah Ta’ala’s mercy with confidence (that Allah Ta’ala will fulfil his needs), (One should not ask Allah Ta’ala to grant one His favour if He pleases) because Allah Ta’ala does as He pleases, none can force and compel Him (over anything).”

2. One should have complete hope in the mercy of Allah Ta’ala while making duaa. One should make duaa with conviction that the duaa will be answered.

عن أبي هريرة قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم ادعوا الله وأنتم موقنون بالإجابة واعلموا أن الله لا يستجيب دعاء من قلب غافل لاه (ترمذي رقم 3479)

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Supplicate to Allah Ta’ala with conviction and certainty of your Duaa being answered, and remember that Allah Ta’ala does not answer the Duaa made from a heart that is inattentive and unmindful.”

 

[1] عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال  إذا دعا أحدكم فلا يقل اللهم اغفر لي إن شئت ولكن ليعزم المسألة وليعظم الرغبة فإن الله لا يتعاظمه شيء أعطاه (مسلم رقم 2679)
