Sincerity in Dua

Hazrat Musa (A.S) once passed a man who was doing Dua to Allah (S.W.T) with great sincerity and humility. Hazrat Musa (A.S) thought to himself that if it was up to him, he would most certainly answer his prayers.

Allah (S.W.T) said to Hazrat Musa (A.S), 'I am the most Merciful, but look at his state. He is asking from Me, but his heart is occupied with his flock. How can I accept the prayer of someone whose heart is elsewhere?'

Hazrat Musa (A.S) passed on this message to the man and thus, he repeated his Duas but with a present heart. As a result, Allah (S.W.T) answered his prayers.


This story teaches us to pray to Allah (S.W.T) with a present heart, rather than with an absent minded one. We should fully concentrate on our Dua and refrain from neglect.

The correct method of praying to Allah (S.W.T) is to raise our hands towards the sky and concentrate whole-heartedly. We should sit in a respectful manner and pray with tranquillity and peace. Allah (S.W.T) will undoubtedly answer such prayers.

Hazrat Anas ibn Malik (R.A) narrates that Holy Prophet (S.A.W) said:  "A Dua made between the Azaan and the Iqamah is never rejected”.

The Sahabah (R.A) asked; “What Dua should we make, Ya Rasoollullah (S.A.W)?”He (S.A.W) replied; “Ask Allah (S.W.T) for Afiyah (well being) in this world and in the Hereafter." (Tirmidhi Shareef) 

Always have full faith in Allah (S.W.T) and do all worship for His pleasure only. When making Duas always ask from Allah (S.W.T), through the Waseela (intercession) of the beloved Prophet (S.A.W)

Read at least three Darood Shareef at the beginning and ending of each Dua. Make istagfaar to Allah (S.W.T) and ask for forgiveness with sincerity and try to refrain from sins. Give thanks to Allah (S.W.T) for what he has given you and he will give you more Inshallah.
