Benefit: Frequent Supplication of the Prophet (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam)

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

On the Authority of Anas ibn Mālik (raḍi Allāhu ʿanhu) who said: The Prophet (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) used to frequently supplicate by saying:

رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ
Our Lord! Give us that which is good in this world and that which is good in the hereafter, and save us from the torment of the Fire!

Benefit: Is Qadr Repelled by Duʿā and Charity?

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Mūsá Richardson (hafiẓahullāh) translates a fatwá from Imām Ibn Bāz in his book of fatawá.

Duʿā is indeed a mighty weapon for the believer and it is the essence and height of worship. Allāh Subhāna wa taʿālá has said make duʿā to me and I will respond to you.  And those who are too arrogant to worship me are going to enter the fire of Hell humiliated.

Shaykh Bin Bāz (raḥimahullāh) explains in his sixth volume of his fatawá whether duʿā (supplication) and charity have the ability to repel Qadā and Qadr, the planned events that Allāh 'azza wa jal has willed.

Prophet Muḥammad (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam) said:

"Nothing increases one's life-span except good deeds, and nothing repels Divine Decree except duʿā. And verily a person may be deprived of sustenance due to a sin that he does." [Ibn Mājah]

Listen to the audio and reap the benefits of the Shaykh's explanation on the matter, and May Allāh 'azza wa jal make us amongst those who supplicate and remember him often.

Benefit: Make Duʿāʾ - Never Give Up Hope

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Sufyān ibn ʿUyaynah (raḥimahullāh) said: Do not abandon duʿāʾ and do not let (the evil) that you know about yourself prevent you from duʿāʾ. Indeed, Allāh answered Iblīs whilst he is the evilest of all creation, Allāh mentions:

قَالَ أَنظِرْنِى إِلَىٰ يَوْمِ يُبْعَثُونَ * قَالَ إِنَّكَ مِنَ ٱلمُنظَرِينَ
“And they only remembered Allāh occasionally”
[Sūrah al-Nisāʾ, 4:142].

Benefit: The Blessing of Safety and Security

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

  Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān:

وَإِذْ قَالَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ رَبِّ اجْعَلْ هَٰذَا بَلَدًا آمِنًا وَارْزُقْ أَهْلَهُ مِنَ الثَّمَرَاتِ مَنْ آمَنَ مِنْهُم بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ
And (remember) when Ibrāhīm said, "My Lord, make this (Makkah) a secure city and provide its people with fruits - whoever of them believes in Allāh and the Last Day."
[Sūrah al-Baqarah, 2:126]

He (Ibrāhīm) began with supplicating for security before supplicating for provision because security is a necessity and the people would not be able to enjoy their provisions in a state of fear. Actually, it is not even possible to attain provisions in a state of fear.

Benefit: The Specified Times for the Morning and Afternoon/Night Adhkar

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh Sālih al-Fawzān (حفظه الله) was asked about the specified times that an individual is allowed to make the morning, afternoon and night adhkar. He (حفظه الله) responded with the following:

The time for the morning adhkar [begins] from dawn, and the time for the afternoon/night adhkar [begins] from the diminishing of the sun, Ẓhuhr time. All of this is the time in which adhkar is done. All of them [i.e. the adhkar] performed at these times: after the diminishing [of the sun, Ẓhuhr time], after Ẓhuhr [i.e. after the Ẓhuhr ṣalāh], after ʿAṣr [i.e. after the ʿAṣr ṣalāh], after Maghrib [i.e. after the Maghrib ṣalāh] are [considered to be] the night [adhkar].

Therefore, if he makes the adhkar anytime in the night, then he has accomplished making it in its time. Likewise, the morning [adhkar]. If dawn appears [and] he makes the adhkar immediately after dawn—after the Fajr ṣalāh, after sunrise up until the sun is in the middle of the sky [this occurs just before the Ẓhuhr ṣalāh]—then all of this is the time for the morning adhkar.

Benefit: We Supplicate to Allāh but He Does Not Respond to Us?

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Ibrāhīm ibn Adham was approached by a group of people. They asked him about the Saying of Allāh, The Most High:

“Call upon your Lord and He will answer you.” [Ghāfir:60]

They said: “We supplicate to Allāh but He does not respond to (our invocations).”[1]

Ibrāhīm ibn Adham replied:

You know Allāh but yet you do not obey Him.

You recite the Qurʾān but you do not act upon it.

You know about the shaytān (devil) but you agree with him.

You claim that you love the Messenger of Allāh but you abandon his sunnah.

You claim that you love (to enter) Paradise but you do not act for it.

You claim that you fear the hellfire but you fail to abstain from disobedience.

You say that death is truly (approaching) but you do not prepare for it.

You are preoccupied with other people’s faults but you do not analyse your own.

You eat the sustenance that Allāh provides (you with) but you show no thanks.

You bury your dead but you do not contemplate over that.[2]

[1] Abū Hurayrah narrated that: The Messenger of Allāh (may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said: "The invocation of anyone of you is granted (by Allāh) if he does not show impatience, saying, 'I invoked Allāh but my request has not been granted'" (Bukhārī and Muslim).
[2] Al-Khushūʿ fi-as-Ṣʿalát by al-Ḥāfiḍ ibn Rajab al-Ḥanbalī (d. AH 790) page 39. This narration has mysteriously been omitted from the English translation of this wonderful book.
