The Importance of Dua
Dua is approaching Allah for help or for the satisfaction of a specific need. It communicates a slave’s powerlessness and reliance on Allah, the All-Powerful and Merciful. It is the channel through which one gets legitimately in contact with one’s Creator.
The motivation behind man’s creation is love and as per a Hadeeth, ‘dua is the substance of love’. (Tirmizi) And as indicated by another Hadeeth, ‘dua is the love’. (Tirmizi)
Similarly as Salah, Sawm, Zakah, Hajj and so on are demonstrations of love, dua too is a demonstration of love. Hence similarly as one sets aside out effort to implore Salah or to discuss the Qur’an or make zikr, comparatively, concurring equivalent significance to dua, one ought to likewise set aside out adequate effort for dua.
The goal behind each demonstration of love is the Recognition of Allah as the Creator and the All-Powerful, and that one demonstrations as indicated by His Will and not as one prefers. A Servant of Allah acknowledges his shortcomings and perceives his requirement for Allah. Out everything being equal, this humbleness and complete accommodation is best communicated in dua. Besides, different demonstrations of love can turn into a wellspring of pride while dua is a demonstration which is generally free from any hint of pride.
These days, dua has turned into a unimportant custom. It has turned into a standard practice which one is familiar with perform at specific occasions of the day. Individuals lift their hands for a couple of seconds at the hour of dua, expressing a couple of words, some deliberately, and some without acknowledging what they are requesting.
Today scarcely anyone resorts to dua for answers for their issues. For the vast majority dua is a dedication which is the most hard to rehearse. Indeed, even at the favored spots and in the favored minutes, a brief time involved by duas will appear hours. All things considered, we find that the commitment in Salah or the recitation of the Qur’an is moderately simpler than making dua. This just mirrors our good ways from the Being of Allah, as dua is the main demonstration of love which gives us the chance to speak with Allah in the way we wish. Absence of focus in this demonstration of love shows that the presentation of different demonstrations of love are likewise standard and shallow, and without the genuine quintessence. On the off chance that we really appreciated the Proximity of Allah, we would unavoidably have discovered pleasure in trusting in Him and imploring Him. We would have consistently felt an energy to go to Him, in open and in isolation.
A considerable lot of us make dua irresolutely, not persuaded whether our requests will be replied or not. We should realize that Allah consistently answers the duas أذكار الصباح والمساء of individuals. Be that as it may, it may not generally appear to be so and numerous individuals, neglecting to encounter the impacts promptly, start to feel down and out and put off. This, be that as it may, ought not be the situation, as Allah, the All-Hearing, without a doubt hears and acknowledges the supplications of individuals, just that the duas of some are addressed quickly, while those of others are conceded for their own advantage.
One should remember that the acknowledgment of duas likewise relies upon the desires for an individual. Allah manages individuals as per what they expect of Him. In one Hadeeth, the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam has related the accompanying Statement of Allah: ‘I treat my hireling as he expects of me…’ (Bukhari, Muslim)
