Supplication to Allah SWT is the Best Tool for What You Want
Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is the greatest human to have ever being created and is a mercy for all of creation. It is to him that Allah (SWT) gave the appointment as His last messenger and it was to him that Allah (SWT) in His Infinite mercy revealed the Quran too. The Quran is guidance and salvation for all of humanity, all you have to do is take the leap of faith and turn to it. Humans cannot see Allah (SWT) directly, that is a fact but that in no ways means that He is not close. In fact Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said, “When you pray (offer Salaat) do it as if you are in front of Allah. And if you cannot achieve that level, then imagine that He is watching you.” Allah (SWT) is the Master of the all the universe, the Creator and Controller of the heavens and earths and all that is between them and that which the human mind cannot even fathom and have absolutely now knowledge about.
Do you not see that Allah is exalted by whomever is within the heavens and the earth and [by] the birds with wings spread [in flight]? Each [of them] has known his [means of] prayer and exalting [Him], and Allah is Knowing of what they do.(Quran Surah An-Nur Ayah 24:41)
In a hadith, Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said, “When a man prays (offers Salaat), he whispers with God”. Allah (SWT) is the most Merciful for every time we repent and ask forgiveness, he forgives us. There are many duas or supplications that Prophet Muhammad (SAW) taught us through which we can invoke Allah’s (SWT) Mercy. There are some times that Prophet Muhammad (SAW) mentioned to us where dua is more likely to be answered.
The Last Third of the Night before Fajr
Abu Hurairah (RA) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said: “In the last third of every night our Rabb (Cherisher and Sustainer – Allah) descends to the lowest heaven and says: "Who is calling Me, so that I may answer him? Who is asking Me so that I may grant him? Who is seeking forgiveness from Me so that I may forgive him?" (al-Bukhari, Hadith Qudsi).
AmrIbnAbsah narrated that the Prophet (SAW) said: “The closest any worshipper can be to his Lord is during the last part of the night, so if you can be amongst those who remember Allah at that time, then do so.” (Tirmidhi, Nasa’ee, Hakim).
Dua with Durood
Another popular time for supplication (Dua) is at the end of prayer (Salat), after Tashahud (or At-tahiyyat) before Salam.
Narrated FaddalahibnUbayd: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “When anyone of you makes Dua, let him start by glorifying his Lord and praising Him (Allah); then let him send blessings upon the Prophet (SAW) (Darood); then let him pray for whatever he wants.” (Abu Dawood, No:1481, Tirmidhi, No:3477).
No Durood, No Acceptance
In another Hadith, Umar bin Khattab (RA) narrated that the Prophet (SAW) said: “Dua is detained between the heavens and the earth and no part of it is taken up until you send blessings upon
your Prophet (SAW)”. (Tirmidhi, No. 486)
IbnMasud narrated: “I was once praying, and the Prophet (SAW), Abu Bakr (RA) and Umar (RA) were all present. When I sat down (in the final Tashahhud, I praised Allah, then sent Salams on the Prophet, s.a.w. (Darood), then started praying for myself. At this, the Prophet (s.a.w.) said: Ask and you shall be given it! Ask, and you shall be given it!” (Tirmidhi, No.593, Mishkat al-Misbah, No. 931)
