The Faster Way God Answers Dua – Ask Him in Distress

“The best way to ask Him is through expressing your distress, and the fastest way to acquire good traits is through expressing your humility and need.”

The level of worship, here, is to show distress; it is when you ask Allah to really feel that you are lost of every other means but His help.

He mentioned in the Quran:

Is He [not best] who responds to the desperate one when he calls upon Him and removes evil and makes you inheritors of the earth? Is there a deity with Allah? Little do you remember. (27:62)

In this verse that inspired this maxim, Allah Almighty is making it clear to the disbelievers that if they ask Him in distress, He will help them. And He is talking in the context of people in the sea on the ship and they feel they’re going to drown and they ask Allah in distress, and He helps them.

So He helps the disbelievers when they ask in distress, what about helping the believers?

This applies to the worldly help as well as help in matters of faith. If you ask Allah to help you to repent; or to help you to go forward with something good that you want to do in His way; if you ask Him to help you to fast, or to pray, or to help you to be good to your parents or relatives or to the poor or the needy…

Allah will help you if you ask really hard, if you feel distressed, if you feel that you have no means but Him to help you with that.


“The fastest way to acquire good traits is to expressing your humility and need.” So when you pray in distress, then He will give you the good traits that you’re asking for.

Some scholars commented on the verse: “Charity is for the poor,” by saying that:

If you are a generous person and you’re giving the poor when they ask you, what about Allah? He is the most generous and you are asking with a feeling of poverty; He will give you as much as you give a poor person when he asks you, and even much more, because He is the most generous.


The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) had a whole series of dua that He taught us. In fact there is no history of any Prophet that is full of dua as much as Muhammad (peace be upon him).

He had a dua for going in and going out; he would make dua in the morning and the evening; when he sees the crescent, the stars, the sun, the moon, when he eats and drinks… He would supplicate to Allah and pray to Him for everything he did.

And his dua you can feel that he had emotions with it; it is not just a dua that is just to repeat, but he would have emotions.

Aishah (may Allah be pleased with her), when she told us about his night prayers, she said that he would cry until he wets his beard with his tears; and then he would sit after the prayers on his pillow and cry until he wets the pillow… And he would continue to do the dua.

So that’s a kind of dua that is in distress that the Prophet (peace be upon him) is teaching us.

May Allah teach us this quality of prayers. And therefore, this will open a lot of good when we have that quality of the dua for Allah.


  1. May Allaah with you and every muslim on this world.Specially those whom their live is in a dangerous way by western country,European and Russia.

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
