Du‘aa is a request and begging. How many of us actually make du‘aa in this manner, especially in the du‘aa after salaah. Our du‘aa is a mere repetition of words.
Looking at the present conditions we are facing, I suggest that we get together as a family and make a collective du‘aa. In this way, one will be making du‘aa and the others saying aameen. The possibility of acceptance is far greater. Through this there is the benefit of feeling the presence of Allah Ta‘ala.
Apart from that, you have passed on a great gift to your children; they will feel that our father has not left us as yateem (orphan). He has given us the gift of communication with Allah Ta‘ala. As a result they will feel strong and healthy and will be saved from depression.
