Whoever is more pious and God-fearing is more deserving of honour.' (Musnad Ahmad)

and its something legitimate, something awesome, and if we have been making dua to have it but there seems to be delay in the answer, should we just think that we wont get it and accept it as the will of Allah, or should we continue making dua for it with a firm belief that He will answer it?

salam


If it's halal you keep making dua, but add the provisio that Allah grant it to you if it is for the best for you if it isn't, that Allah grant you something even better because Allah knows what is better for you.

I've learnt throughout life that each Dua that is granted is granted during the best time and place for you, the duas that are not granted were never of benefit in the long term for me or that particular situation altho at the time I could not see that.

Keep making duas they're never wasted.





Wassalaam

And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186

Assalamu Alaiykum,

I was reading Surah Al Kahf & immediately thought of your post anonymous.

هُنَالِكَ الْوَلَايَةُ لِلَّهِ الْحَقِّ هُوَ خَيْرٌ ثَوَابًا وَخَيْرٌ عُقْبًا

Here is protection only Allah's, the True One; He is best in (the giving of) reward and best in requiting. (Al Kahf (18) v. 44, Quran).

Ma'Salam,

Cinders


وَلَسَوْفَ يُعْطِيكَ رَبُّكَ فَتَرْضَىٰ

And soon will your Lord give you so that you shall be well pleased.
Al Qur'an (93:5)

Salam,

I had the chance to ask our Shaikh this today in the Halaqah.

He said in answer to the above ^ (paraphrased):

When it comes to that which Allah loves, we should never stop imploring Allah. Things like Imaan, Ihsaan, Sabr, Yaqeen, Justice, Dhikr, Salah, Uns, Raja, uprightness of you and your family...we should always make Dua for these continuously.

If what we ask for is a legitimate matter of Dunya, like Halal wealth or relations with others, we should do Dua for these things in a moderate way, not at full throttle or strength, because we are seeking something Halal of the Dunya.

Could Allah's not answering be a sign that He is choosing something better? Yes. It could be.

That is why the Salihoon don't ask for matters of Dunya at all. They are sure that Allah will give them what they need of the Dunya. It is Halal for us to ask though.

The delay in answering could also mean to continue your Dua. Stopping making Dua is stopping an Ibadah. Sometimes when Allah loves an Abd, he does not answer their prayers when it comes to matters of Dunya. There is a text (although unsure of it's authenticity) 'When a Salih, a person Allah loves, solicits something from Allah, Allah tells Jibreel do not give him because I love to hear his pleas.' Yes it's Ajeeb. Yet Allah always gives, not everything always all the time, but He does give us and chooses in ways we don't realize the good of. Sometimes in denying our prayers even. If you live long enough you realize sometimes you would have been better without it. We didn't want to learn at that time so we were made to learn later. In the end, never stop imploring Allah. No prayer is wasted, it always works in your favor.

w'Allahu alam.
