|Respected Brother/Sister in Islam,|
Assallaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatuhu
THE UMMAH IN DUA
All over the world Muslims are in difficulties. Palestine,
Iraq, Chechnya, Bosnia, Afghanistan, etc. are clear evidence of this.
Besides the global atrocities against Muslims, every person has his own
problems and needs.
Somebody is ill, another is deep in debts, others are agonising over
disobedient children, etc. What is the way out of this situation?
Firstly, sincere Tauba (Repentance) And Istighfaar (Seeking
is absolutely imperative. Tauba includes a firm resolution not to
Sin again. Coupled with this let us draw down the help and mercy of
Ta'ala with Dua. Only the help and mercy of Allah Ta'ala can save us.
Allah Ta'ala Declares:
" If Allah Assists You, None Can Overcome You And If He Forsakes
Who Is There To Assist You Besides Him? And Upon Allah Should The
Believers Trust" (Al Qur'an)
Therefore let us dedicate some time in Dua. Imagine The Ummah engaged
non-stop in Dua for 24 hrs. Sounds Impossible? No. It is possible. At
anytime of the day somewhere in the world is sunset. Thus if on a
day throughout the world people gather for approximately 45 minutes and
engage in Ibadah and Dua for The Ummah, the non-stop for 24hrs people
somewhere in the world will be engaged in Dua for the Ummah. Now
millions of hands raised at the same time in Dua, millions of hearts
the world united in Dua and sincere pleading for the mercy of Allah
Surely the help of Allah Ta'ala will come.
Hence be a part of this global effort to help the Ummah through your
Dua is the weapon of the Believer. Dua is the essence of Ibadah.
this is the least you can do for the Ummah.
The day earmarked for every place to dedicate at least 45mins after
Salaat for Dua is

for the earmarked date in your area.

participate in the programme.
