The Power of Du'a


Wherever Muslims are, we are undeniably subjected to the power of Almighty Allah Azza Wajalla as a whole. As a meager servant, one should bow to Allah as He has made our predestined fate written beforehand of all creations. And to act like one, we should obey all His Injunctions and accept the fate without hesitant, in which they are all happened and ordered for a reason.

Kaifa halukum? We hope and pray for all of us to be in the pink of health, InsyaAllah. May some reminders above will give us a spark of awareness of what we are created for. Speaking of pray, PRAY or Du'a is oftentimes related to the relationship and connection between man and His God. Same goes to Muslims.

Du'a is the essence of Ibadah. A person engaged in Du’a affirms his belief in Tauhid (monotheism) and shuns belief in all false gods. A person seriously and sincerely engaged in Du’a understands exactly the relationship between himself and the Creator and affirms it through his actions. That is the essence of worship!

Additionally, such a person can never become arrogant or proud, a logical result of true worship. Du’a is our most potent weapon in all struggles of life as well as in jihad in the battlefield. During the battle of Badr, Prophet Muhammad s.a.w stood up all night in prayer seeking Allah’s help in the battle between unequal armies that would follow the next day. In the decisive battles against the crusaders, Sultan Salahuddin Ayyubi was busy day and night. His days were devoted to jihad. His nights were spent making Du'a, crying, and seeking Allah’s help. Eventually, both battles are won by the Muslims. That what makes Du'a so powerful.

Yet, how to make Du'a being granted by Allah?

1. Be sincere and humble in your prays and heart. Be devoted to Allah.
2. Pray for what is right and not things that may harm to people, be it intentionally or not.
3. Work hard to achieve what you are asking for. Allah won't grant you any if you don't make any effort towards it.
4. Tawakkal to Allah. Put in all hopes to Allah after trying your best. 
5. If what you've been asking for is not granted, have faith in Allah for He knows the best for you. 

Wallahu a'alam..
