COLLECTION OF ACCEPTED SUPPLICATIONS
There is not a single person who does not need every type of goodness and success.
It is for this reason that Allah 3£ provided various means and opened numerous doors for goodness and success in both worlds.
This He did, so that those who are in need may seek assistance via these avenues and gain salvation from difficulties and calamities.
The effects of all means apart from du a ‘ is very restricted [and not all-embracing].
The aim of the natural means [such as agriculture, trade, medicine] is a worldly success, although they can indirectly assist one’s din as well. As for the Shari means [such as fasting, salah, and hajj], their actual purpose is a religious success although they are beneficial in one’s material life as well.
However, du ‘a ’ is the only method that has been stipulated equally for worldly and dim success at the same time. Due to this comprehensive nature of du’d ’, its efficacy and importance are obvious.
It is for this reason that encouragement, virtue, and emphasis in this regard are mentioned again and again in the Qur’an and Hadith. Allah M says: “Make du’a’ to Me, I will accept it.”
Rasulullah said: “The greatest act of worship is du‘a
He also said: “The doors of acceptance have been opened for the person who has been blessed with the opportunity of making Dua.” Other Traditions state: “The doors of paradise are opened.” “The doors of mercy are opened.”
Rasulullah & said: “The most beloved thing which can be asked of Allah is to ask Him for peace and prosperity.” We learn from this that we are also ordered to ask for worldly needs
