Salam brothers and sisters.

 

we all heard once at least that Ramadan is the best time for duas to get accepted. Is it true ? And if so, is it not selfish ? Because we should do things to get closer to God, and making dua for our own desires (I'am not talking about the ones where we ask God forgiveness and thank Him), is it not considered as selfish ?

Thank you very much.

Worship for the sake of reward or fear of punishment is better than none at all, but the best is worship from love of the One being worshipped.

It is true that making dua is better that not making one at all but I want to be sure bc I read that when we break our fast most of us are unaware of this great blessing (which is getting all your wish granted) bc we are to busy thinking about food at this time. I wanted to be sure that it's not just a story and that's true bc it's such a blessing from God so please if someone can help, don't hesitate.

Don't just limit your dua for yourself. Always Include others in your dua. The following story is from the life of Allama Tabatabai (ra):

I had written a paper on Imamat and presented it to ‘Allamah Tabataba’i, saying, “occasionally when you are tired of studying and discussion, in the name of relaxation or as they say, for a recess (zange tafrih) have a look at this paper of mine as well”.

He kindly agreed and read the paper from beginning to end, word for word. After some time he said, “I have seen it in its entirety”. When I went to pick it up from him, he made an objection saying that in a particular place in the paper you have made a personal prayer only for yourself. I had narrated a hadith, and after the narration of the hadith and a commentary on it, I had written “O God, bequeath the ability to understand the signs of God to this being”!

He [‘Allamah] said, “why have you made this personal prayer? Why have you not included others in your invocation for Divine sustenance?” Then he said to me, “as far as I am aware, I have never made a personal prayer only for myself”.

-Ayatullah Jawadi Amuli

ali_fatheroforphans: thank you for your reply and I always try as much as I can to ask God to grant my family, and friends wishes and to forgive them. But what I was asking is you know sometimes you have personal wishes, I was just asking if it's true that Allah accepts those duas too in Ramadan... like i said, i have read more than once that when you break your fast, Allah will answer your dua.

    • perhaps you have missed my points:   This is the question of a person who is chained within the boundaries of space & time. Where was time before the bigbang? Hawking said that time does not exist before big bang. Read his article "beginning of time"

    • If they surrounded you; first rule, stop, look at all of them directly in the eye and tell them, move out my personal space, we are having a discussion, this is not a fight. If you want to have a fight, let me call my boys you call your mamas, cause somebody gonna get hurt! easy to defeat atheists, ask, why is the state your master?, no, no ,no, we just obey, I mean follow it, they look after us?. But they make laws that you never have a say in it? but, but, they are smarter!. You admit to being dumb and thus need someone do direct you to the grass? So is that the reason why you are the slave of the men who own the money?. erm what do you mean you conspiracy theorist! That is when you got them. Then follow up with, is Sigmund and Dawkins their prophets?. If one follows the ideas of a particular men, thus they become their masters. Well why did you not mention Carl Jung?, he and Sigmund worked together before Carl decided he was a retard?. What about Kant? Socrates? Emerson? Plato? Plotinus?, the list is huge. One cannot enter such discussions without having read works of around 20 authors or more.

    • Many with the so called good jobs cannot find partners. You are concentrating on the job title, focus on how to make dem monies u get me brejin. In today's world YouTube is your tutor, you can take the good from it or the bad.

At the interview tell them, the truth, because the point in life is, you are meant to be free and not a slave. If you claim God has guided you, surely he should Guide you whenever in need. https://www.prospects.ac.uk/ Do not be addicted to such types but be inspired.
