When we read the Dua’a of our Prophet salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam, we find that it is way different than ours! A lot of the Muslims complain that they ask Allah but don’t seem to find any result. Did you ever ask yourself; why my Dua’a is not being answered? If you read the authentic Dua’a of our Prophet salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam, you will find a common denominator between them. He was given the concise of speech; few words that include deep and profound meanings. However, all of his Dua’a express one thing; our Prophet’s humility, poverty and submissiveness to Allah. No wonder Allah referred to him in the Quran, as “My servant or slave”! Now, if we analyze our hearts when we make Dua’a, we will find that we are heedless and not expressing anything except arrogance. We call Allah as if we are demanding what is ours instead of portraying our poverty and need! We are ignorant of the etiquettes of supplications and the best times for it. Therefore, next time you raise your hands for Dua’a, look again at your heart and take a good look; is it a heart that pleases Allah?
