Increasing in (making) dua’a is a cause for attaining the help of Allah (سبحانه وتعالى) when you want to memorize or are memorizing the noble qur’aan. Your constant remembrance of Allah makes you the recipient of His help and Allah also makes your memorization very sound and easy. Allah (عزّ وجلّ) is the only One able to make that which is difficult, easy and that which is rough and hard, smooth and soft (easy).

Allah says in the noble qur’aan : {إذآ أراد شيءا أن يقول له كن فيكون}

82. Verily, his Command, when He intends a thing, is Only that He says to it, “Be!” and it is! (Surat Yaasin vs. 82)

{إذا قضى أمرا فإنّما يقول له كن فيكون}

47. … when He has decreed something, He says to it only: “Be!” and it is. (Surat Aal-Imran vs. 47)

Allah (سبحانه وتعالى) also says: {فسبحان الّذي بيده ملكوت كل شيء}

83. so glorified is He and Exalted above All that they associate with him, and In whose hands is the dominion of All things… (Surat Yaasin vs. 83)

{ولله خزائن السماوات والأرض}

7. … and to Allah belongs the treasures of the heavens and the earth… (Surat Al-Munaafiqoon vs. 7)

So it is upon you (the slave) to depend/rely on Allah and return to Him alone. You should also show your need for / dependence on Allah and acknowledge that you have no power or might, all might and power belong to Allah (سبحانه وتعالى) alone.

As you make the dua’a, you must not be hasty in your wait for a response to your dua’a because it is forbidden, for whoever is consistent in knocking on the door, it will soon be opened for him.

Some of the acts that lead to an accepted dua’a are as follows:

  • Eating or Consumption of Halal food and drinks. 

    On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (رضي الله عنه) who said: The messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلّم) said: ” O people! Verily Allah is pure and accepts only that which is pure……. then he mentioned the case of a man who had travelled far, was disheveled and dusty. He raises his hands up to the sky saying: “O rabb! O rabb!”, while his food is unlawful, his drink is unlawful, his clothing is unlawful and he is nourished unlawfully, so how can he be answered? [It was related by Muslim]

  • Having confidence in Allah and thinking good of him.

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (رضي الله عنه) who said: The messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلّم) said: Allah says : ” I am to my slave as he thinks of Me, and I am with him wherever he remembers Me.” [ It was related by Al-Bukhari and Muslim]


    The best dua’a is the dua’a that is revealed in the noble qur’aan and the pure sunnah. Allah says: {إنّ هاذا القرءان يهدي للّتي هي أقوم}

    9. Verily, This Qur’ân guides to that which is Most just and Right… (Surat Al-Israa vs. 9)

    {وننزّل من القرءان ما هو شفاؤ ورحمة لّلمؤمنين}

    82. and we send down from the Qur’âan that which is a healing and a mercy to those who believe (in Islâmic Monotheism and act on it)… (Surat Al-Israa vs. 82)

    {قل إن كنتم تحبّون الله فاتبعوني يحببكم الله ويغفر لكم ذنوبكم والله غفور رّحيم}

    31. Say (O Muhammad to mankind): “If You (really) love Allâh Then follow Me (i.e. Accept Islâmic Monotheism, follow the Qur’ân and the Sunnah), Allâh will love you and forgive you of your sins. and Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (Surat Aal-Imraan vs. 31)
