I have been told many times that one should make Duah for oneself firstly and then follow with duahs for others.
I always start my Duah with supplication for my adult son who passed away. Is this wrong.
 Following thisI many times slip into duah for other people who are in need and lastly add myself.
Should we supplicate for the departed after our own Duah?

Ma Salama

I am not talking from a learned perspective as I've not been taught what you say.

When I make duas. I firstly praise Allah, do istighfar, then I recite the durood to send blessings upon the Prophet (saw), then I call upon Allah using his beautiful names (I've actually managed to memorise quite a few this way), then I pray for my parents and my children and friends and family and anyone who as asked me to remember them in my duas, then I ask for me.

I was told that all duas one makes for others the angels reply Ameen and the same for you...or something like that.

You can make duas for the departed too, my mum usually makes supplication for them before making duas for ourselves.

Dunno. Ask your imam if you're really concerend, or listen to the way they make duas that should give you an idea of the best way to make duas.

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

Salam,

I have read before in etiquettes of Dua one should ask for oneself before asking for others. (because on the Day of J. it's going to be all about you and you're not responsible for anyone elses salvation) It's probably not so hard to switch the order around. Sometimes we get in the habit of saying duas in a certain way, even long Arabic one's forgetting what they mean! so might be good to go over them and switch them around every so often.

wsalam
