1. make dua for others
umm darda’ reported:
my husband reported that he heard allah’s messenger (ﷺ) as saying: he who supplicates for his brother behind his back (in his absence), the angel commissioned (for carrying supplication to his lord) says: amen, and it is for you also.(sahih muslim)
2. ask people to make dua for you.
don’t be shy or too proud or arrogant to ask people to pray for you, especially those who are indebted to you.
keep reminding them to pray for you. they may forget one time, but they wont forget when reminded constantly.
3. make lot of duas and many times during the day.
dua for every single thing.
ubadah bin as-samit (may allah be pleased with him) said:
the messenger of allah (ﷺ) said, “whenever a muslim supplicates allah, he accepts his supplication or averts any similar kind of trouble from him until he prays for something sinful or something that may break the ties of kinship.” upon this someone of the companions said: “then we shall supplicate plenty.” the messenger of allah (ﷺ) said, “allah is more plentiful (in responding).”
[at- tirmidhi]. 4. ask allah first.
suppose, a problem comes up. you know a particular person can solve it. you call him immediately. stop. call allah first. ask allah first. yes, that person can solve your problem but can he do that if allah doesn’t will it? are we placing more faith in a human rather than allah(swt)? we must always believe that everything is from allah, if allah doesn’t order than no matter how easy it is for a human to solve a problem, it wont be solved if allah doesn’t order it.
always discuss your problems with allah first. talk to him, pour your heart out, seek help and be confident of a positive response.
5. do a good deed.
abu hurairah (may allah be pleased with him) reported:
the messenger of allah (ﷺ) said, “he who utters a hundred times in a day these words: ‘la ilaha illallahu, wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu, wa huwa ‘ala kulli sha’in qadir (there is no true god except allah. he is one and he has no partner with him; his is the sovereignty and his is the praise, and he is omnipotent),’ continue 👇👇👇
