Dua is wondering Allah for help or for the achievement of a certain need. It expresses a slave's helplessness and dependence on Allah, the All-Powerful and Merciful. It is the channel through which one gets straight touching one's Creator. The goal of man's development is worship and according to a Hadeeth,'dua is the substance of worship '. (Tirmizi) And according to a different Hadeeth,'dua is the worship '. (Tirmizi) In the same way Salah, Sawm, Zakah, Hajj etc. are acts of worship, dua too is definitely an act of worship. Therefore only together takes out time to hope Salah or even to recite the Qur'an or produce zikr, similarly, according equivalent significance to dua, one should also sign up for ample time for the benefit of dua.

The goal behind every act of worship is the Recognition of Allah because the Creator and the All-Powerful, and that certain acts according to His Will and not together likes. A Servant of Allah accepts his flaws and recognises his importance of Allah. Out of most devotions, that humbleness and overall submission is better stated in dua. More over, different acts of worship can be a supply of delight while dua is definitely an act which can be generally free of any track of pride. In these times, dua has turned into a pure ritual. It has turned into a schedule training which one is comfortable to perform at certain occasions of the day. Persons increase their hands for some instances during the time of dua, uttering a couple of words, some consciously, and some without even realising what they are wondering for.

Today hardly everyone resorts to dua for options with their problems. For most of us dua is a devotion which can be probably the most hard to practise. Even at the fortunate areas and in the fortunate instances, a short while occupied by duas may look like hours. By and large, we discover that the involvement in Salah or the recitation of the Qur'an is fairly simpler than creating dua. This just shows our range from the Being of Allah, as dua is the only act of worship which gives people with the chance to keep in touch with Allah in the fashion we wish. Not enough attention in that act of worship demonstrates the efficiency of different acts of worship are also traditional and superficial, and lacking the actual essence. When we really loved the Distance of Allah, we would undoubtedly have found pleasure in confiding in Him and beseeching Him. We would have generally believed an eagerness to turn to Him, in open and in solitude

Many of us produce dua half-heartedly, not convinced whether our requirements will soon be answered or not. We must realize that Allah generally answers the duas of people. Nevertheless, it might not necessarily look therefore and many individuals, declining to see the results immediately, begin to sense dejected and set off. This, nevertheless, should not function as case, as Allah, the All-Hearing, truly hears and accepts the supplications of people, just that the duas of some are answered immediately, while these of the others are deferred for their own benefit. One should remember that the approval of duas also is dependent upon the expectations of a person. Allah handles persons in accordance with what they expect of Him. In one single Hadeeth, the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam has related the following Statement of Allah:'I address my servant as he wants of me...' (Bukhari, Muslim)

The Ahadeeth also inform us that duas (provided that their requisites have been fulfilled) are acknowledged inevitably, but their approval is manifested in sometimes of the three below-mentioned ways: Occasionally, Allah immediately answers them and blesses the seekers with what they have called for; sometimes He alternatives what they have called for with something that in His Knowledge was better for them; or as an alternative, through the joys of the dua, He eliminates an imminent calamity that has been to befall them. At times, neither of the above may happen, but on such occasions, the dua is valued for the Hereafter. These unanswered duas may bear therefore much prize a individual, on the Day of Qiyamah, may hope that nothing of his duas were acknowledged in the world. (Kanzul'Ummal) Abstaining from haram (clothing, food, revenue, etc.) is another important necessity for the approval of dua. The Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam when produced reference to someone who travels widely, his hair disheveled and included with dust. He lifts his hands towards the air (and thus makes the supplication): "E Master, E Master," then the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam said, "But his diet is unlawful, his drink is unlawful, his outfits are unlawful and his nourishment is unlawful. How then may his supplication be acknowledged?" (Muslim)
