Virtues of Duaa

A Duaa to Continuously Beg from Allah Ta’ala

عن أبي الفضل العباس بن عبد المطلب رضي الله عنه قال: قلت :يا رسول الله علمني شيئا أسأله الله تعالى قال: سلوا الله العافية فمكثت أياما ثم جئت فقلت: يا رسول الله علمني شيئا أسأله الله تعالى قال لي: يا عباس يا عم رسول الله سلوا الله العافية في الدنيا والآخرة. (الترمذي رقم 3514)

Hadhrat Abbaas (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports: “I once asked Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), ‘O Rasul of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), teach me a (beneficial) duaa which I should beg from Allah Ta’ala.’ Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied: ‘Beg Allah Ta’ala to bless you with aafiyah (physical and spiritual ease).’ After a few days I came again to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and asked, ‘O Rasul of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), teach me a (beneficial) duaa which I should beg from Allah Ta’ala.’ Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied: ‘O Abbaas, O uncle of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), beg Allah Ta’ala to bless you with aafiyah in this world and the aakhirah.”

One who makes Duaa always Gains

عن أبي سعيد الخدري أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال : ما من مسلم يدعو بدعوة ليس فيها إثم ولا قطيعة رحم إلا أعطاه الله بها إحدى ثلاث : إما أن يعجل له دعوته وإما أن يدخرها له في الآخرة وإما أن يصرف عنه من السوء مثلها  قالوا : إذن نكثر قال : الله أكثر . رواه أحمد وأبو يعلى بنحوه والبزار والطبراني في الأوسط ورجال أحمد وأبي يعلى وأحد إسنادي البزار رجاله رجال الصحيح غير علي بن علي الرفاعي وهو ثقة  (مجمع الزوائد رقم 17210)

Hadhrat Abu Sa’eed Khudri (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Whichever Muslim makes duaa to Allah Ta’ala and supplicates to Him, and his duaa does not contain any sin (i.e. asking for anything which is impermissible) or the severance of family ties, Allah Ta’ala will grant him one of three things. Either He will grant him what he had asked for (in this world), or He will keep the reward of the duaa for him in the Aakhirah, or He will avert a calamity from him.” The Sahaabah (Radhiyallahu Anhum) said: “In that case, we will engage in abundant duaa.”Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied: “Allah Ta’ala is more than everything (i.e. His power and treasures are more than what  you ask for).”

Ask Allah for all your Needs

عن أنس قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم: ليسأل أحدكم ربه حاجته أو حوائجه كلها حتى يسأله شسع نعله إذا انقطع وحتى يسأله الملح. قلت : رواه الترمذي غير قوله : " وحتى يسأله الملح "رواه البزار ورجاله رجال الصحيح غير سيار بن حاتم وهو ثقة (مجمع الزوائد رقم 17221)

Hadhrat Anas (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Each of you should turn to his Lord, Allah Ta’ala for his need or for all his needs (the narrator expressed a doubt whether the word of the Hadith was ‘for his need’ or ‘for all his needs’), to such an extent that he should also ask and beg Allah Ta’ala for the need of a shoelace when it breaks, or even beg Him for salt (at the time he is in need of salt).”

Remain Steadfast on making Duaa

عن ابن عمر رضي الله عنه قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : إن الدعاء ينفع مما نزل ومما لم ينزل فعليكم عباد الله بالدعاء . (الترمذي رقم 3548)

Hadhrat ibn Umar (Radhiyallahu Anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Duaa is beneficial for the present and for the future. Therefore, O servants of Allah, remain steadfast on making duaa.”

The Effect of Haraam on our Duaas

عن أبي هريرة، قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: أيها الناس، إن الله طيب لا يقبل إلا طيبا، وإن الله أمر المؤمنين بما أمر به المرسلين، فقال: يا أيها الرسل كلوا من الطيبات واعملوا صالحا، إني بما تعملون عليم  وقال: يا أيها الذين آمنوا كلوا من طيبات ما رزقناكم . ثم ذكر الرجل يطيل السفر أشعث أغبر، يمد يديه إلى السماء، يا رب، يا رب، ومطعمه حرام، ومشربه حرام، وملبسه حرام، وغذي بالحرام، فأنى يستجاب لذلك؟  (مسلم رقم 1015)

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “O people, indeed Allah Ta’ala is Pure and accepts only that which is pure. Allah Ta’ala has commanded the believers with the same command that He gave to the Ambiyaa (Alayhimus Salaam). (In regard to the Ambiyaa (Alayhimus Salaam)), Allah Ta’ala has said: “O Messengers, consume that which is pure and wholesome and perform righteous actions. Indeed I am all aware with what you do.” (In regard to the believers), Allah Ta’ala has mentioned: “O believers, consume from the pure and wholesome foods that We have provided for you." Thereafter, Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) explained the condition of a person who had undertook a long, arduous journey. His hair was dishevelled and his clothing was covered in dust. He raised his hands to the sky crying in supplication saying, “O my Lord, O my Lord (Help me in my difficulty)." Whereas his food and drink intake are haraam, his clothing is obtained from haraam sources; his body is nourished with haraam, so how can his duaas ever be answered?” (i.e. Despite being in this pitiable plight and condition, his duaas are not answered).
