Dua is conversation with Allah, our Creator, our Lord and Master, the All Knowing, the All Powerful. We turn to Him because we know that He alone can lift our sufferings and solve our problems. We feel relieved after describing our difficulties to our Creator. We feel empowered after having communicated with the All Mighty. We sense His mercy all around us after talking to the Most Merciful. We get a new commitment to follow His path for that is the only path to success.
Imagine you are going to meet a very powerful & wealthy king, and you can ask whatever you want and he will give you; what kind of list would you make?
Allah (SWT) IS the most powerful & wealthy king! He(SWT) is the generous and actually loves that His servants ask and beg Him.
Salmaan reported the Prophet (peace be upon him) as saying, ‘Verily, your Lord is magnanimous and generous, ashamed of turning down a slave of His who raises his hands in supplication to Him.’ (Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith No. 1488)
And Unlike any mortal king, Allah(SWT)’s resources are infinite, His bounty endless and His granting us our wishes does not decrease as He(SWT) said in a Hadith Qudsi,
‘O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to rise up in one place and make a request from Me, and were I to give everyone what they requested, that would not decrease what I have anymore than a needle decreases the sea if put into it’ [Muslim no2577]
So this Ramadan, ask with no limits. Open your heart to As Samee’, the all hearing, Al Mujeeb, the One who responds and Al Wahhab, the Bestower. Draw out a priority list if you must and ask with your hands raised to the sky, your heart full of hope that He will answer. Because, He always does.
