How to Make Dua So That Allah Accepts?

Allah will drive you away from His mercy when you are merciless towards others. The Prophet said:

Allah doesn’t have mercy upon those who don’t have mercy upon fellow human beings.”

So remember, if you want the mercy of Allah, be merciful to others. You want Allah to be kind to you, be kind to others. Save yourself from losing the mercy of Allah.

Allah speaks about another extremely important component when it comes to saving ourselves.

Many of us make dua (supplication). We call out: “O Allah help me… guide me… give me…” “O Allah I’m looking for a job, grant me a good health, a good wife…” and we keep on making dua, but many of us forget to make dua for others.

We make dua only for ourselves, we are selfish!

You want everything for yourself. Isn’t it?

Remember the hadith says:

“The angels say Ameen to the dua that you’re making for someone else in a way that they would say ‘O Allah grant this person the same’.” (Muslim)

So when you say: “O Allah grant this man a million Rand, the angels say ‘O Allah give this person also a million as well.’”

Whose dua’s better?

I wonder if you saw the little joke going around on WhatsApp where they say: there is a man who was making dua:

“O Allah grant my friend a beautiful wife.”

And his wife heard the dua and slapped him across the face. So he said:

“Why did you do that?”

She said:

“Don’t think I’m a fool. I know the angels are saying ‘give him as well’. So you’re asking for another wife?”

don’t misinterpret other people’s dua my dear sisters. I hope now you know that how to make Dua.

May Allah (Subha'na Wa'talaa) grant us goodness.

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
