GOAL NUMBER 2 – Make Dua daily for the entire Ummah, especially those afflicted by poverty or suffering oppression
And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me – indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided(Surah Baqarah)
“The supplication that gets the quickest answer is the one made by one Muslim for another in his absence.” (Abu Daw’ud and Tirmidhi)
Fellow sisters! Fear Allah and be dutiful to Him. Stay away from sins. For sins destroy. Know that you have a Lord whom you are going to meet and a house in which you are going to live after your death. Seek the pleasure of your Lord before you meet Him and properly build your house before you move into it.
Fellow sisters! We are the Ummah of Qur’an and Sunnah, the Ummah of divine guidance. We are the Ummah of the right path. Belief in Allah is the source of security and peace. And the hearts that are devoid of Imaan are always far from Allah and are full of fright and confusion.
Fellow Muslims! When a man’s heart is full of Imaan, he knows his place of refuge and the remedy for his ailments. For this life is based on toil and man is seldom free from dangers. He suffers ailments and calamities; sorrows and wars; injustice and transgression and all kinds of tribulations. However, Allah is Ever Compassionate with His slaves. He always provides for them relief through a door of His mercy and blesses them with tranquillity and peace of mind. That door is the door of supplication to Allah, humbling oneself before Him and putting one’s trust in Him. For supplications are the security of the frightened, the refuge of the weak and the solace of invocators. Who is He that has sought refuge with Allah and has not been protected and who is he that has relied on Him and has not been given guidance?
“SUPPLICATION IS THE ESSENCE OF WORSHIP” (Tirmidhi)
Being able to make Dua is itself a blessing from Allah; there are countless of people who are so immersed in daily life that they cannot even spare the time to make dua for themselves. Remember that Allah wants us to ask from Him and He loves to give! MUSLIM MASSACRE
