    How to make Dua to Allah

    Dua (supplication) is an incredible power that many of us sometimes don't fully comprehend—because if we did, we would do whatever is necessary to get our duas answered. Sometimes our duas are answered immediately and sometimes they take much longer than we expect. However, when made properly, du`a’ can transform our lives and bring about miraculous results.

    In order to get our duas answered we must fully comprehend the dynamics behind du`a’. Firstly, we must have complete certainty (yaqeen) that Allah subhanahu wa ta`ala (Glorified and Exalted is He) will answer our prayer. There should be absolutely no doubt in our minds that Allah (swt) is listening to our duas and is capable of answering them. We must also be careful not to lose hope in our du`a’ and become impatient when we don’t see the results we want. We need to continuously remind ourselves that the key to getting our duas answered is by being persistent in our du`a’. And most importantly, we must make sure that there isn’t a sin we are committing that we haven’t repented sincerely from, as our sins can be the first thing that can get in the way of our duas being accepted—especially if the sin includes earning a living through unlawful means.

    Once this is understood and followed, rest assured that Allah (swt) will either give you what you want or something much better than it; and He will most likely give it to you in a way that you never imagined.
