A beautiful lesson about Dua’

Bismillah Walhamdulillah Wassalatu Wassalamu ala Rasulillah

إن أكرم شيء عند الله


Inna Akrama shai ‘Indallah Ad Dua’

‘The most honorable thing for Allah, is supplication’


One of the great scholars of Islam by the name of Mutarrif ibn ‘Abdullah ibn Ash-Shikhkheer (rahimahuallah) said,

“One day I was thinking of all the act of worship that we do: salah, sadaqah, siyam, all the acts of worship that we do. And I found that there is no way for anyone of us to do any one of the act of worship if Allah (swt) would not help him or her to do it.”

So many people hear the adhaan and they don’t care to respond. So many people don’t give zakah, they don’t do sadaqah, Subhan Allah if Allah (swt) doesn’t open your heart to do the good deeds nobody else can force it, or inspire you to do it.

Mutarrif (ra) said,

“I realized at that moment that all these act of worship it is in the hands of Allah, He gives it to whomever He wants and He wills. There is no one who can have access to what Allah has in His hand except through one way, through one mean only, which is Ad Du’a. At that moment I realized why Ad Du’a’ is the most dear the most honorable and dearest act of worship to Allah (swt).”
