Lift both hands across chest, spread out both palms facing the skies with a slight gap in between them and look into the palms with humility. After reading Bismillah and Salawaat, and whilst having more Yaqeen in the power of the Du’aa then in our weak efforts, speak to Allah Ta’aala in the following manner:
Sayyadina Thaabit (radiallahu anhu) narrates: “Everyone should ask his Creator for all of his needs even if it be of salt or be it of a shoe-lace when it breaks.” [TIRMITHI]
OUR DU’AAS WILL BE REPLIED TO, INSHA-ALLAH, IN ONE OF THREE WAYS:
We will be given exactly what we asked for, or a calamity which was supposed to befall us will be removed, or we will receive such a reward on the day of Qiyaamah that we will wish that none of our Du’aas were accepted.
ALLAH TA’AALA’S PROMISE!
“AND I REPLY TO THE ONE WHO MAKES DU’AA UNTO ME. THUS LET HIM ASK ME…”
