“Ask Allah” what does this mean??
When you need something from someone, you make Dua once, twice, and many other times unless they’ll get not fed up with you. But if we ask for something, either small or large wishes. He is the only one who can fulfill our desires and never gets fed up. So he is happy if we ask something from Him, either tiny wishes it has. So always ask Allah; he is the one who can fulfill our desires. In the Quran
Almighty Allah states:“
“Call me, and I shall give.”
Dua is something that can never stop. Every time we need something, our wishes never stop. But Allah is the only one who listens and fulfills our desires. Therefore, Dua is the only way to ask HIM. Many people said that Allah didn’t listen to his Dua. However, it does not mean he didn’t listen to you; your Dua does not waste; it only waits for you on the Day of Judgement as a beautiful reward.
How To Ask Allah For Forgiveness?
Allah says in the Quran:
“If the earth is full of sins are turned to me, I will give earth full of repentance!”
There is no age and time to repent for your sins. However, Allah forgives and relents from punishment for those who genuinely love God.
ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَغْفِرُ ٱلذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًا ۚ إِنَّهُۥ هُوَ ٱلْغَفُورُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ
“Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed He is the most Forgiving, the Merciful.” (Quran 39:53).
Still no delay; always seek forgiveness from Allah Almighty.
وَقُل رَّبِّ ٱغْفِرْ وَٱرْحَمْ وَأَنتَ خَيْرُ ٱلرَّٰحِمِينَ
“And, [O Muhammad], say, “My Lord, forgive and have mercy, and You are the best of the merciful.”
Quran Kareem states clearly that;
وَيَٰقَوْمِ ٱسْتَغْفِرُوا۟ رَبَّكُمْ ثُمَّ تُوبُوٓا۟ إِلَيْهِ يُرْسِلِ ٱلسَّمَآءَ عَلَيْكُم مِّدْرَارًا وَيَزِدْكُمْ قُوَّةً إِلَىٰ قُوَّتِكُمْ وَلَا تَتَوَلَّوْا۟ مُجْرِمِينَ
“And O my people! Ask forgiveness of your Lord and then repent to Him; he will send you (from the sky) abundant rain and add strength to your strength, so do not turn away as Mujrimoon (criminals, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah).” [Hood 11:52]
How To Ask Allah For Guidance
A true believer always turns back to Allah no matter how many times we have messed up. When your Iman is at its lowest, you have to seek guidance. Remember! Allah guides those willing to guide by the quotes from Quran, so have the effort to seek guidance. We seek guidance five times a day while offering prayer (in Surah Fatiha).
In the Quran, Allah ask us to seek guidance,
ٱهْدِنَا ٱلصِّرَٰطَ ٱلْمُسْتَقِيمَ
“Guide us to the straight path.” (Al-Quran 1:6)
صِرَٰطَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ غَيْرِ ٱلْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا ٱلضَّآلِّينَ
“The path of those upon whom You have bestowed favor, not (the path) of that evoked [You’rer] anger or of those who are astray.”
A great weapon Dua:
Each Muslim’s most grounded weapon against misfortune is Dua (supplication). When you feel miserable and feel that the world has closed all entryways of joy for you, you realize that there is dependably a source anticipating your call and willing to help you. At present, the vast majority of Muslim nations are under assault. But, on the other hand, the main thing that keeps them going is their firm confidence in HIM and the conviction that their Duas will be acknowledged one day. Allah mentions in the Quran:
وَقَالَ رَبُّكُمُ ٱدْعُونِىٓ أَسْتَجِبْ لَكُمْ ۚ
“And your Lord says, “Call upon Me; I will respond to you.”
As Muslims, we should never give up and should always make dua. Because Allah never likes those people who give up. Dua is the ultimate weapon to counter our fears, depression, oppression, and adversity in the shape of Dua.
