Muslim’s important faith is Dua. The importance of Dua can be judged by the fact that it is the most potent weapon of a Momin, which works even when no other trick works. It is a higher manifestation of love that Allah values. Dua is approaching Allah for help or the satisfaction of a specific need. It communicates a slave’s powerlessness and reliance on Allah, the All-Powerful and Merciful. It is the channel through which one gets straightforwardly in contact with one’s Creator.

Dua is an act of worship in Islam that involves making a request to Allah (God) for oneself or others. It is considered an essential aspect of one’s faith because it demonstrates reliance on Allah and helps increase one’s connection to Him. Dua can be made at any time and for any reason, and it is believed to be a means of seeking help, forgiveness, and guidance from Allah. Furthermore, dua is also seen as a way to express gratitude, increase one’s patience and humility, and demonstrate the importance of dua to Allah in all aspects of life.

Prophet Hazrat Muhammad’s (S.A.W.) sayings about the Importance Of Dua:

Once, Prophet Muhammad passed by a people suffering from some affliction.

“Why don’t they make dua (pray) to Allah for protection.”

He Say’s On Other Place for the importance of dua as

“Allah gets angry with individuals who do not supplicate or seek the forgiveness of Allah. Therefore, dua is an act that cannot and should not be neglected or ignored.”

Generally, as Salah, Sawm, Zakah, Hajj, and so forth demonstrate love, dua is a demonstration of love. Subsequently, generally as one takes time to implore Salah or to recount the Quran or make zikr, also concurring equivalent importance of dua, one ought to additionally set aside sufficient time for dua.

On Other Place Allah (S.W.T.) says in the Quran:

قُلِ ٱدْعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ أَوِ ٱدْعُوا۟ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنَ ۖ أَيًّا مَّا تَدْعُوا۟ فَلَهُ ٱلْأَسْمَآءُ ٱلْحُسْنَىٰ ۚ وَلَا تَجْهَرْ بِصَلَاتِكَ وَلَا تُخَافِتْ بِهَا وَٱبْتَغِ بَيْنَ ذَٰلِكَ سَبِيلًا

“Call upon Allah, or call upon Rahman: By whatever name you call upon Him, (it is well): For to Him belong the Most Beautiful Names.” 

(AlQuran 17:110)

Allah Treats Person According to his Expectations:

One should keep in mind that the acceptance of duas also depends on a person’s expectations. Allah deals with people by what they expect of Him. In one Hadeeth, the Prophet Sallallahu alayhi wasallam has related the following Statement of Allah:

I treat my servant as he expects of me…’ (Bukhãri, Muslim)

On Other Place Allah (S.W.T.) says in the Qur’an about the importance of dua: 

لَهُۥ دَعْوَةُ ٱلْحَقِّ ۖ وَٱلَّذِينَ يَدْعُونَ مِن دُونِهِۦ لَا يَسْتَجِيبُونَ لَهُم بِشَىْءٍ إِلَّا كَبَٰسِطِ كَفَّيْهِ إِلَى ٱلْمَآءِ لِيَبْلُغَ فَاهُ وَمَا هُوَ بِبَٰلِغِهِۦ ۚ وَمَا دُعَآءُ ٱلْكَٰفِرِينَ إِلَّا فِى ضَلَٰلٍ

To Him [alone] is the supplication of truth. And those they call upon besides Him do not respond to them with a thing, except as one who stretches his hands toward water [from afar, calling it] to reach his mouth, but it will not reach it [thus]. And the supplication of the disbelievers is not but in error [i.e., futility].

(AlQuran 13:14)

At long last, one ought not to request anything unlawful. Numerous youngsters don’t understand the importance of dua, and requesting impermissible things cause the disappointment of Allah. Only Dua will make you satisfy.

Might Allah issue us the tawfeeq to swing to Him for everything our needs. And may He satisfy all our legal needs of this world and the Hereafter. Ameen
