daily suplications

Du'ah for Anguish

Oh Allaah, I hope for your mercy. Do not leave me to myself even for a blinking of an eye (i.e. a moment). Correct all of my affairs for me. There is none worthy of worship but you.

(Allahumma rahmataka arju fala takilni ila nafsi tarfata ‘aynin wa aslih li sha’ni kullahu la ilaha ila anta)

[Abu Dawood 4/324, Ahmad 5/42]

Times a supplication is answered by Allah

Question: What are the times when a du’aa (supplication) can be answered?

Answer: There are clear revelations in the Sunnah regarding the times when a sincere supplication can be answered. The following are amongst them:

1)      Between the adhaan and the iqamaah.

2)      The last tashaahud in prayer

3)      The prostration in prayer (sajdah)

4)      The last few hours of the Jumu‘ah day (Friday)

5)      The last third of the night

6)      During rainfall

These are the times revealed with evidence, when Allaah will answer the supplication of his slave if it is made with sincerity – and He is the all Powerful.
