Allah SWT is Ready to Answer our Dua, Dr Emdad Khan
We sometimes make mistakes; we do not realize. In other times, because of our friends or environment, we are involved with undesired activities. Sometimes, Shaitan misguides us and we do things with evil desires.
But Allah swt is always ready to forgive us, if we turn back to HIM.
Allah swt, says, Surah Al-Baqarah A2.186
وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِى عَنِّى فَإِنِّى قَرِيبٌ ۖ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ ٱلدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ ۖ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُوا۟ لِى وَلْيُؤْمِنُوا۟ بِى لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ ١٨٦
When My servants ask you ˹O Prophet˺ about Me: I am truly near. I respond to one’s prayer when they call upon Me. So let them respond ˹with obedience˺ to Me and believe in Me, perhaps they will be guided ˹to the Right Way˺.
The above verse applies to us every day, each month, but we can focus for now before Iftar time, Suhr time and during Azan time and Iqama time.
Allah swt is very near to us, he observes, sees, and listens.
We do not need 3rd person but sending Salawat/ Durood to prophet Muhammed pbuh will enhance our Dua.
Also sincerely do Astaghfar at least 3 times, also will enhance our Dua.
If we can focus on improving our 5 prayers and follow the proper recitation and properly observe the different parts of salah, Roku, Sujud and standing properly from Roku, Sitting properly between Sujud will enhance our salah and our Dua.
Also making Dua for parents, relatives, friends, and community enhances our own Dua acceptance.
May Allah forgive us and guide us and accept our Dua. Ameen.
