Allah hears & answers!

All praise is due to Allah swt and may His peace and blessings be upon his final prophet and messenger, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

This was sent to me a while back. Subhanallah! What a beautiful reminder.

A person’s du’a tells you a lot about him. In it are his hopes, dreams, aspirations and fears. So what did the prophets pray for?

This du’a of Ibrahim alaihi salaam is in Surah Baqarah 127-129:

And (remember) when Ibrahim and Isma’il were raising the foundations of the House (the ka’bah and they prayed) “Our Lord, accept [this] from us. Indeed You are the Hearing, the Knowing.” (2:127)

He and his son were building the ka’bah. Can you think of any more guaranteed good deed than this? This is the House of Allah, that Allah had commanded them to build. Yet, in all his humility, he still prays to Allah to accept this deed from them.

“(The two prayer further) Our Lord, and make us Muslims [in submission] to You and from our descendants a Muslim nation [in submission] to You. And show us our rites and accept our repentance. Indeed, You are the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful.” (2:128)

Who do we make du’a for? Ourselves? Our friends? Our children? Our grandchildren? Ibrahim alaihi salaam is making du’a for a nation that will come from his great-great-great-…-great-grandchildren. He’s making du’a for us.

This is vision!

“Our Lord, and send among them a messenger from themselves who will recite to them Your verses and teach them the Book and wisdom and purify them. Indeed, You are the Exalted in Might, the Wise.” (2:129)

Here, Ibrahim alaihi salaam is making du’a for the coming of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

When is this du’a answered? What is the period between Ibrahim alaihi salaam and Rasulullah salla sallallahu alayhi wasallam? Centuries? Millenia? Wallahu ‘alam. Even the du’a of a prophet might not be answered for a long, long time. And yet, we are certain that Allah hears and answers our du’as.

All praise is due to Allah swt at the beginning and at the end.

May you be rewarded for visiting my page and may we all benefit. Ameen.

The Katibah.

    Indeed, Allah Hears and Answers.

    The du’a of Ismail is one of my favourites – it is filled with vision, wisdom and humility. May we be granted the wisdom of making similar duas for success in this dunya and akhirah.
