GMT - 3 Hours Du'a Vs. Destiny.

Post by Abu Fauzi on Thu Aug 17, 2017 9:41 pm

As-Salaam alaikum,
 Sometimes some people tend to assume that they need not make any  Du'a... or supplicate and ask Almighty Allah for their needs and wants... when everything is DESTINED to happen the way Allah Ta'ala has ordained.

 This is a wrong perception; Du'a/prayer/supplication includes averting affliction, it is a means of turning aside tribulation and drawing Divine Mercy, just as a shield is a means of deflecting arrows; and water a means of bringing forth herbage from the earth.

 Just as a shield turns aside arrows and they offset each other, so too Du'a and affliction compensate each other. It is not a condition for believing in the Destiny of Allah Most High that one go unarmed, for Allah has said, "TAKE DUE PRECAUTION" (4:71) or that one should not water land after seeding, saying: 'If previously destined the crop will grow, and if not previously destined it will not'. Rather, the conjoining of causes and effects is the premordial destiny that was accomplished "in the twinkling of an eye or even faster" (16:77)

 So, stick to Du'a always... ask...beg Allah of all your needs, be they material or spiritual, as the Prophet Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said: "Du'a is worship"... he also said: "whoever does not ask Allah, He becomes angry with him".
