Etiquettes of Dua
« on: August 16, 2010, 08:53:46 PM »
1. Allah Loves to Be Asked

2. Sincerity Towards Allah Alone in Making Du'a

3. Ask Allah by His Most Beautiful Names

 4. Praising Allah as He Deserves Before
Calling Upon Him

 5. Sending Blessings Upon The Prophet (peace
be upon him)

6. Facing Towards The Qiblah

7. Raising The Hands
The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

"Your Lord, may He be blessed and exalted, is Kind and Most Generous, and He is too kind to let His slave, if he raises his hands to Him, bring them back empty." [Abu Dawud].

The palm of the hand should be raised heavenwards, in the manner of a humble beggar who hopes to be given something.

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

"When you ask of Allah, ask of Him with the palms of your hands, not with the backs of them." [Abu Dawud].

Should the hands be held together when raising them or should there be a gap between them?

Sheikh Ibn 'Uthaymeen stated that they should be held together. What he said is: "As for separating them and holding them far apart from one another, there is no basis for that in the Sunnah or in the words of the scholars." End quote.


 8. Having Certain Faith That Allah Will
Respond

9. Asking Frequently
A person should ask his Lord for whatever he wants of the good things in this world and the Hereafter, and he should beseech Allah in Du'a, and not seek a hasty response, because the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

"The slave will receive a response so long as his Du'a does not involve sin or severing of family ties, and so long as he is not hasty." It was said, "What does being hasty mean?" He said: "When he says, 'I made Du'a and I made Du'a, and I have not seen any response,' and he gets frustrated and stops making Du'a." [Bukhari]

10. Being Firm in Du'a
Because the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

"No one of you should say, 'O Allah, forgive me if You wish, O Allah, have mercy on me if You wish'; he should be firm in his asking, for Allah cannot be compelled." [Bukhari and Muslim]


11. Beseeching, Humility, Hope & Fear

Allah says:

"Invoke your Lord with humility and in secret" [Noble Quran 7:55]

"Verily, they used to hasten on to do good deeds, and they used to call on Us with hope and fear, and used to humble themselves before Us" [Noble Quran 21:60]

"And remember your Lord within yourself, humbly and with fear and without loudness in words in the mornings and in the afternoons" [Noble Quran 7:20]

12. Saying Du'as Three Times

 13. Ensuring That One's Food and Clothing
Are Lawful (i.e., Halal)


14. Saying Du'a Silently & Not Out Loud

Allah says:

"Invoke your Lord with humility and in secret" [Noble Quran 7:55]

And Allah praised His slave Zakariyyah (peace be upon him) by saying:

"When he called to his Lord (Allah) a call in secret" [Noble Quran 19:3]


ALLAH BLESS ALL....

For Dua, a person has to possess a meditative mind & full belief upon Allah
"Many thanks to Allah who gave us life after having given us death and (our) final return (on the Day of Qiyaamah (Judgement)) is to Him"
