DUA: The Sword of the Believer

Making dua (prayers) is an important part of our faith and belief because as muslims we only rely on Allah for our needs, We ask from Almighty Allah for everything that we want in our life no matter its how big or small. Dua is a means of keeping in touch with Allah and due to Dua, we get closer to our Lord. So, Dua is a source of keeping the supplicant closer to the Almighty Allah.

Dua is a form of prayer and it could be made at any time anywhere there is no fixed time and place of making Dua. It is considered as a weapon with the help of which we can change our situation by asking help from Almighty Allah. Dua can change the destiny so try to make Dua in every situation because with Dua you will always get closer to Almighty Allah. It maintained a person’s belief in One Lord and it rejects all forms of idolatry. Dua is essentially a submission to the Creator and a demonstration of a person’s need for Allah.

Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran:“When my servants ask you concerning me, (tell them) I am indeed close (to them). I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he calls on me.” (Quran, 2:186). So with this verse, we can say that Allah Almighty listens to us when we make Dua.  We should always seek help from Allah. But how many of us actually know how to go about this? Below are some prayers to help us get started. You can infuse yours as time goes on:

Today’s Beautiful Hadith is about Compassion

‘A’isha (RA), said, “I was on a camel which was somewhat intractable and the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, remarked, ‘You must be compassionate. Whenever there is compassion in something, it adorns it, and when it is removed from something it disgraces it.”

(Al-Adab Al-Mufrad, Book 26, Hadith 8)

SubhanAllah what a wonderful reminder to consider others – people and animals – in whatever you’re doing. Remove harm from the path in consideration for others, leave food out for nearby animals and constantly be compassionate to others.


“And We have enjoined on man (to be good) to his parents. In travail upon travail did his mother bear him, and in two years was his weaning. Show gratitude to Me and to thy parents; to Me is thy final goal.” (Quran 31:14)
