5 Things You Should Keep in Mind While Making Dua

All praise be to Allah.

There are certain things that one should keep in mind concerning the Dua:

1. Allah love it when we make dua.

The Prophet once said, “Dua is Ibadah” (Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, and Abu Dawud). Since it is a type of worship, it is something that we must always do. This is even to the extent that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) said, “Allah is extremely displeased with the person who doesn’t do duaa to Allah” (Tirmidhi).

2. We must never stop making dua.

Dua must not only be a tool for coming out of hardship. It must not be conditional. One must always make sure that he makes dua to Allah. A person can never say that he needs nothing and hence he won't make a dua. We are always in need of mercy and blessing of Allah.

Prophet (Peace be upon him) said Whosoever desires that Allah answers his Duas in unfavorable and difficult conditions, he should make plentiful dua in days of ease and comfort.”

3. Make Dua for others.

When you make dua for others, the same dua is accepted more quickly. It may happen that someone makes dua for you too and it gets accepted too.

There are certain ayahs in the Quran such as the last Ayah in Surah Nuh, the meaning of which is, “O my Lord! Forgive me, my parents, all who enter my house in Faith, and (all) believing men and believing women: and to the wrong-doers grant Thou no increase but in perdition!”

If you are to recite this verse, then you get a sin erased for every Muslim living in this world. Also, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, ”Duaa for a person not present is accepted quickly by Allah”.

4. Trust Allah.

Have complete faith that Allah will accept and answer your prayer. Having no belief in the power of Allah will not get your dua answered.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “When anyone of you do Dua then don’t say “Oh Allah! Forgive me if you want“, “Have mercy on me if you want“, “Give me subsistence if you wish” rather believe completely that HE will do whatever HE wishes. Nobody can force Him.” (Bukhari)

5. Make dua in Sujood.

The best time to make dua is when one makes dua in sujood and at times between Adhan and Iqamah.

Prophet (Peace be upon him) said, “Three types of people’s Duas are not rejected:

1) At the time of Iftar the person who has fasted.

2) Adil ruler’s Dua.

3) The Dua of the oppressed. Allah raises the Dua of the oppressed on the clouds and the doors of heaven are opened for it and Allah says, “Oath of MY Majesty and Honor! I will help and aid you. Even though if the help is after few days.” (Tirmidhi)

Another Hadith listed another three in which the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, Three Duas are such in which there is no doubt of their acceptance:

1) Father’s Dua

2) Traveler’s Dua

3) Dua of the oppressed”. (Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah)

May Allah subhana wa taala accept all our Duas and bless us with his mercy.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so


It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy


Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
