Great thread but surely Allah swt will not deny you or i something just because a random muslim on the internet did not do a two second prayer?

If this is to gain emotional support from each other, superb thread.

These are my views and not indicative of anything.

Brother, a dua is not a magic spell. It is a means to get closer to Allah, to communicate to our Creator. Yes, He already knows our needs, and He does not need our prayers. We are trying to build up our piety, to become more like the Holy Ahlul Bayt AS. A sincere dua or a collective dua can change the outcome of a situation. My relative died from cancer and I can say, oh my God, my prayers were not answered. Or I can say, Alhamdulillah my relative lived x number of years after diagnosis because of our sincere duas. Maybe someone can explain it better than me. :donno:

Sister, I think you're explanation was perfect. :)

If he's still not convinced after your explanation, then it just shows he is stubborn.

Walaykum Salam,

Sorry to hear about your relative. I too have one who died from cancer. May Allah have mercy on them if that's what he wills.

So is dua more about giving thanks to God, doing your best, and always having a sense of gratitude no matter what the outcome? If so i agree.

But if collective Dua is meant to manifest any physical effect, i just can't see how. For instance, if i want to get better from an ilness and my parents pray for me, will Allah swt say ' i will not grant his dua until fulan online does a two second prayer for him"

I really like this thread and the unity it bring - i do. I see it strengthening bonds, but if we are doing this and believe random 2 second prayers will help - isn't that dangerous?

Thanks for your answer though sister. You do represent the normal islamic belief, and i have heard lectures on this that round about say what you say, maybe i just don't understand the islamic concept of dua, or perhaps i do?

I'm going to assume everyone knows the duas everyone should be making for more "global" and "universal" issues.

Please make dua that Allah [swt] take me down the educational path that is most pleasing to Him and it also become pleasing to my parents.

2:186 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.

(salam)

please make dua that Allah gives me the taqwa and makes it a bit easier for me to complete the nawafil salat. Also please pray that I am able to become useful and a further friend of my mother, as she has nobody in the West other than her children, so ask Allah to make me into someone who helps her and respects her. :)

And pray that all of the kind brothers and sisters here are blessed, especially sister hameedah, who's radiating smile can be felt in each of her posts, and her great ability to spread islamic knowledge on SC :)

I like this idea, and I got re-directed here because of the post Baby Beaver made more recently, so thank you to both of you. I think everyone gets strength from praying for others and having others pray for them, and who knows whose Dua will be listened to?

Only if we start blaming God and/or members on SC for not having our wishes fulfilled.

I don't know if this answers your question(s), but I see Dua as going hand in hand with believing in Allah's Adl (Justice), Ilm (Knowledge) and being contented with what he gives you. When you do that, you won't wonder if He is the petty Deity who will reject your dua because some people on the Internet didn't pray for you. Neither will you go down the 'everyone prayed for me but I still didn't get xyz that I asked for, so Duas don't work' road. There are several reasons why Duas don't get fulfilled, and Allah doesn't love me/doesn't have the power/Dua is useless are NOT among those reasons.

So when I want something, I do Dua, and I ask others to pray for me too. When I still don't get what I want, I think that a) maybe it wasn't good for me, since Allah does know a thing or two more than I do, b-) maybe it wasn't good for me to get it right now, and I will eventually get it, c) Maybe I don't deserve it, or d) Maybe Allah is testing me, after all, the world is just a test.

PS: I'm in this difficult, minefield-like situation. Prayers would be appreciated

Thanks for all the duas!  Will pray for all of you on this thread too inshAllah!

I agree. More duas can only help. I personally feel like all duas are not created equal. Sometimes, I make duas but not all that sincerely. Or, sometimes I do things that probably make me undeserving of whatever I asked for in my duas. I think that all it takes is one good, sincere dua to be fulfilled. If I ask a hundred people to pray for me, then perhaps one of those people will pray for me with a more sincere and deserving heart than mine, and be thus be the one to be granted by Allah. I don't know how my concept of duas matches up with the reality, but at the end of the day, I think that praying for each other only helps. :)

to keep our brothers and sisters in our duas, is one the best way we might be hopeful to have our Duas accepted.

there is a tradition says, Allah S.W.T, addressed prophet Moses saying, O Moses call me and ask me your needs by means of the tongue you have not committed any sin by. Moses surprised and said how it could be possible? Allah said to him ask me your needs through the other's Duas. (more definition: ask your brothers to make Dua for you )

وَ رُوِيَ‏ أَنَّ اللَّهَ سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى أَوْحَى إِلَى مُوسَى يَا مُوسَى ادْعُنِي عَلَى لِسَانٍ لَمْ تَعْصِنِي بِهِ فَقَالَ ع أَنَّى لِي بِذَلِكَ فَقَالَ ادْعُنِي عَلَى لِسَانِ غَيْرِكَ‏ ».

other tradition: among the Duas, the closest and the fastest to the acceptance, are those which made by believers for their brothers and sisters.

وَ رَوَى الْفَضْلُ بْنُ يَسَارٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع‏ أَوْشَكُ دَعْوَةً وَ أَسْرَعُ إِجَابَةً دَعْوَةُ الْمُؤْمِنِ لِأَخِيهِ بِظَهْرِ الْغَيْب‏

and there are more traditions in this regard I would just put the Arabic text.

وَ عَنْهُ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص‏ مَا مِنْ مُؤْمِنٍ [أَحَدٍ] دَعَا لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ إِلَّا رَدَّ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ مِثْلَ الَّذِي دَعَا لَهُمْ بِهِ مِنْ كُلِّ مُؤْمِنٍ وَ مُؤْمِنَةٍ مَضَى مِنْ أَوَّلِ الدَّهْرِ إِلَى مَا هُوَ آتٍ إِلَى يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ وَ إِنَّ الْعَبْدَ لَيُؤْمَرُ بِه‏ إِلَى النَّارِ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ فَيُسْحَبُ فَيَقُولُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ وَ الْمُؤْمِنَاتُ يَا رَبِّ هَذَا الَّذِي كَانَ يَدْعُو لَنَا فَيَشْفَعُوا فِيهِ فَيُشَفِّعُهُمُ اللَّهُ فِيهِ فَيَنْجُو

Bismehe Ta3ala,

Assalam Alikum.

Another suicide bombing in Baghdad. Saudis still bombarding our brothers and sisters in Yemen. Unrest in Al quds. God show mercy on the martyrs and give patience to the families. The suffering of this ummah continues.

Al 3jal al 3jal ya mawli ya sahib as zaman.

M3 Salamah, FE AMIN Allah

I pray for all of you. May God grant all your hearts desires. All of you please pray for me, but not for a job or all the ensnaring or weak means to the end like that, rather pray that God gives me good business and fatter and more frequent lumps of money, so I can proceed to sacrifice the lumps on the altar of the greed of relatives and the money worshipping society of this time era he chose for me. Its no joke, and it is important.

God? You know I regularly give a lot of money to your mosque and your good works and for charity and to my family though these are never enough, you know that well, and that I confess that I am the lowliest and filthiest of your creatures. But please listen. I am not asking for ferraris or castles or all the frivolties of this world rather I am asking for ease through money. I don't like other creatures when they are at my throat for more money, or when they worship me for having money, I don't want any of that. And I am precisely asking so I can be left alone in peace so I can worship you.

This is why I have become stingy and greedy. Dear God! If I stop earning money, they will throw me on the streets. They think that karbala is some stage play. They have picked their favorite characters and like to perform in that play. Even if I have not done anything good, I don't disrespect Karbala. So please for the sake of martyrs of karbala and prisoners of shaam, don't take away my source of income.

    • Condolences on the shahadat of Imam Hassan Mujtaba AS. Imam Hasan (a.s.) said: Translation I wonder about those who think about their body’s food, but do not think about their soul’s food. They keep undesirable food away from their belly, but fill up their heart with destructive subjects.1 Brief Description Our people are usually quite careful with their food and do not start eating unless they know what it is. They avoid anything that looks doubtful and some go to great lengths to ensure that the body receives good, clean, healthy diet. Yet, when it comes to the food for the soul, these same individuals will throw caution to the winds. With eyes closed, unaware of the reality, they would have no hesitation in pouring down any mental food into their soul. They harm their souls by accepting without question the speeches of unsuitable friends, misleading press reports and suspicious or poisonous propagation, and this is very surprising. 1. Safinat’ul-Bihar 84, article of taste.
