Du’a: To Make Du’a at All Times

Du’a is one of the greatest acts of worship, and as such, it should be performed at all times, in times of ease and in times of hardship.

Many people have the bad habit of only making du’a when a calamity befalls them or when they wish for a particular good to occur. This goes against the attitude of a believer, because it shows that one only remembers Allah in times of need, when in fact we should remember Him all the time. The Prophet, peace be upon him, said:

“Whoever wished that Allah responds to his du’a at times of hardship, then let him increase his du’a at times of ease!” (Recorded in al-Tirmidhi)

An Arabic proverb states, ‘Whoever knocks continuously, will eventually be let in!’. Take some time to ponder over this point. Allah is Al-Barr, the Generous, and He is not like the creation who tires of being asked.

The more you ask Allah, the more He will love you.
