’Uthaimeen on Du’aa
September 1, 2014 § Leave a comment
Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “One of the conditions for one’s du’aa to be answered is that when a person supplicates he should feel as though he is in the most dire need of Allaah سبحانه وتعالى, and that Allaah تعالى Alone is the One who responds to the desperate one when he calls upon Him and that He is the One who removes evil. As for a person who supplicates to Allaah عزوجل whilst feeling as though he can manage without Him سبحانه وتعالى and that he is not in need of Him and instead just asks Him as a habit [of his], then such a one is not worthy of being answered.”
