Sunnats and Aadaab of Dua - Part Two

Written by

12. After completing your dua, say aameen.

Abu Musabbih Al-Maqraaiy relates: On one occasion, we were seated by Abu Zuhair An-Numairi (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) who was from among the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum). He was most eloquent in speech. When anyone among us used to engage in dua, he would say, “Seal the dua with aameen, for aameen is like a stamp on the paper.” He then said further, “Should I not inform you regarding this? One night, we came out with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and came across a person who was fervently engaged in dua. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) stopped to listen to him and said, ‘If he seals his dua, he will make Jannah binding for him.’ One of the people asked, ‘How should he seal it (his dua)?’ Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, ‘He should seal it with aameen? If he seals it with aameen, he has made Jannah binding for him.’ The one who had asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) went up to the person and said, ‘O so and so, seal your dua with aameen and accept the glad tidings (of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)).’” [1]

Sunnats and Aadaab of Dua – Part One

Written by

1. Commence the dua by praising Allah Ta‘ala and then reciting durood upon Hazrat Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Thereafter, in all humility and respect, present your needs before Allah Ta‘ala.

Hazrat Fadhaalah bin Ubaid (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that on one occasion, Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was seated in the musjid when a person entered the musjid and performed salaah. He then made dua saying, “O Allah, forgive me and have mercy on me.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) addressed him saying, “O musalli, you have hastened (in your dua). After performing salaah, when you sit (to engage in dua), then (first) praise Allah Ta‘ala with praises that befit His majesty and honour. Thereafter, recite durood upon me, and then call upon Allah Ta‘ala and ask Him of your needs.” Subsequently, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had seen another person perform salaah. After performing salaah, he engaged in dua. He first praised Allah Ta‘ala and thereafter recited durood upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) addressed him saying, “O musalli, call upon Allah Ta‘ala and ask Him for your needs, your dua will be answered (as you have abided by the etiquettes of dua).” [1]

People Whose Duas Are Accepted

Written by

The Parents, the Traveller and the Oppressed

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Three duas are such that they will undoubtedly gain acceptance; the dua of the father (or mother, in regard to their child), the dua of the musaafir (traveller) and the dua of the oppressed.” [1]

The Fasting Person and the Just Ruler

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Three people are such that their dua will not be rejected; the fasting person until he breaks his fast, the just ruler, and the dua of the oppressed person which Allah Ta‘ala raises above the clouds, and for which the doors of the heavens are opened, and Allah Ta‘ala says, ‘By My honour! I will definitely assist you – even if it is after some time!’” [2]

Dua is a means through which a servant draws from the unlimited treasures of Allah Ta‘ala. There are numerous virtues reported in the Mubaarak Ahaadith for those who make dua. Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said that dua is the essence of all ibaadah. [1]

In another Hadith, Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned that Allah Ta‘ala becomes pleased with the servant who makes dua and begs Him for his needs, [2] and Allah Ta‘ala becomes displeased with the servant who does not turn to Him in dua, begging Him for his needs. [3]
