8 Reasons Why Du’a is Not Answered

1) PRAYING TO OTHER THAN ALLAH:

The Prophet (peace be upon him) taught his cousin Ibn ‘Abbas:

“ When you ask, ask of Allah; and when you seek help, seek help from Allah.“ (Tirmidhi)

Therefore, Always ask Allah directly seeking no intermediary between us and Him.

Allah says:

{And when My slaves ask you (O Muhammad) concerning Me, then (answer them), I am indeed near (to them by My Knowledge). I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me (without any mediator or intercessor). So let them obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may be led aright} (2:186)

2) BEING HEEDLESS:

When making Dua’, you should collect your heart, stay focused, and consciously think of the One you are calling upon. The Prophet said:

“You should know that Allah does not answer the dua’a that comes from a heedless heart.” (At-Tirmidhi)
3) LACK OF SINCERITY:

Allah says: {Call then upon Allah with sincere devotion to Him.} (40:14)

4) DOUBTING ALLAH’S RESPONSE:

When we make Dua’, we should put our trust in Allah and be sure of Allah’s response. Never think of the bad deeds we have committed, because Allah is the Oft Forgiving, Most Merciful.

The Prophet taught:

“ Make dua’a while being certain of the response.” (At-Tirmidhi)

5) SHOWING IMPATIENCE:

We should never be hasty while making dua’a nor stop making dua’a because we do not get a response. The Noble Prophet said:

“The (dua’a) of anyone of you maybe answered( by Allah) as long as he does show impatience by saying, “ I prayed to Allah but my prayers have not been answered.” (Al-Bukhari)

6) EARNING UNLAWFUL INCOME:

We should make sure we earn income from halal (lawful) resources, otherwise our dua’a will be rejected. The Prophet, then made mention of a person who travels widely, his hair disheveled, and covered with dust.

“He lifts his hands and makes supplication, ‘O Lord, O Lord,’ but his diet is unlawful, his drink is unlawful, and his clothes are unlawful, and his nourishment is unlawful. How then can his supplication be accepted?” (Muslim and Ahmad)

{O you Messengers! Eat of the good things and do righteous actions.’} (3:51)

{O you who Believe! Eat of the good things wherewith We have provided you.} (2:172)
7) PRAYING FOR SIN:

We must avoid any kind of prayer that involves a sin, especially severing kinship ties. The Noble Prophet said:

“ The Dua’a of anyone of you maybe answered by Allah as long as his does not involve a bad deed or severing kinship ties.” (At-Tirmidhi)

8) NEITHER ENJOINS GOOD NOR FORBIDS EVIL:

The Messenger of Allah said:

“By Him in Whose Hand my life is, you either enjoin good and forbid evil, or Allah will certainly soon send His punishment to you. Then you will make supplication and it will not be accepted”. (At-Tirmidhi)

If you are committing any sin which you are aware of, then it is best advised to stop committing that sin so that Allah will answer your dua’s. We don’t know which sin of ours is stopping Allah from accepting our prayers.

The Messenger of Allah said:

“Any Muslim who makes a supplication containing nothing which is sinful, or which involves breaking ties of relationship, will be given for it by Allah one of three things:

1. He will give him swift answer,

2. or store it up for him in the next world,

3. or turn away from him an equivalent amount of evil.”

Those who heard it said they would then make many supplications and he replied that Allah was more ready to answer than they were to ask! (At-Tirmidhi)

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

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

MUSLIMS MOURN ALI BANAT - THE MAN ‘GIFTED WITH CANCER’

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

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

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
