“In the court of God, there is no greater thing than Dua (prayer)" (Ibn Majah)
As human beings, our life in this world is characterized by fluctuating conditions making us happy and sad. No one experiences perpetual bliss or misery. Life by its very nature is a test.
God says: “He is the One that has created Life and Death in order to test who amongst you is best in conduct.” (Qur’an, 67:2) Pleasant and favorable conditions demand us to be grateful and humble or adverse conditions require us to be patient and to seek Allah’s help.
As Believers we ought to believe that every condition is a manifestation of the Will of God. What has passed us was not meant to befall us and what has befallen us was not meant to pass us. Assistance comes with patience, relief after affliction and ease after difficulty (Tirmidhi). Our faith and belief is tested when we undergo difficulties and afflictions.
These difficulties may be physical, emotional, financial and/or psychological. This is borne out by the following verse: “Verily We will test you with some fear, hunger, and loss of wealth, life or the fruits (of your labor.” (Qur’an, 2:155) These adverse conditions may at times be upon an individual, a family, a community.
In Hadith we find that the Noble Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) came across a community of people going through a tribulation. He advised, “Why don’t they supplicate (make dua) to God for assistance?”
The problem with us is that dua for us has become a ritual and a final resort after all the options and the means have been exhausted. Dua, according to a Hadith, has the unique ability to change destiny (Tirmidhi).
All the Prophets (peace be upon them), as we find in Qur’an, resorted to supplications as their ultimate ‘weapon’ to solicit God’s help when all their efforts would fail while reforming nations in their respeoctive hostile environments.
Dua is a condition of the heart and conversation with one’s Maker in the language of one’s choice. A Hadith says, dua is a means of beseeching Allah Almighty for the fulfillment of all our needs no matter how mundane or insignificant as it may be; or significant as facing overwhelming odds. We will be discussing this and the best ways of supplication.
