A Frequently Asked Question After Making Dua! Cool Reminders | Mufti Menk

Some people are drifting away from Allah subhanaw Taala and Allah did not answer my Dua. But Prophet (Pbuh) explains to us, every one of you will be responded to and is responded to for as long as you don’t make haste.

We know that Allah is the most merciful. We know that He is the most kind. Al-Ghafoor, Al-Ghaffer means one who constantly forgives not one time, many times. Every time you do wrong He forgives you. That is Al-Gaffer. Then Allah (swt) is Al-wadud / the most loving. Allah (Swt) is Ar-Rahim/ the most merciful. Ar-Raman also the most merciful, different type of mercy.

Don’t ever lose hope in the mercy of Allah. Shaitan’s plot is to make you lose your link with Allah by making you lose hope in the mercy of Allah.

Don’t ever lose hope in the mercy of Allah. So that means if you lose hope in the mercy of Allah, you are going against the command of Allah. If you lose hope in the mercy of Allah, you are committing a major sin against Allah. The idea is never to lose hope in the mercy of Allah, no matter where Shaitan took you. Come back, no matter where he took you. Allah will forgive and Allah forgives and will forgive your sins, all of them. Indeed, He is the one who is al-ghafoor/ the most forgiving, Ar-Rahim. Surely we need to go and meet Him.

Allah says Utter This Dua For Your Parents | Ramadan Short Dua 1

40 years of age is a very important milestone in the life of a man (woman). Keeping in mind the average lifespan of sixty-seventy years, one who reaches 40 years of age completes about two-thirds of his (her) average lifespan; thereby meaning that he (she) enters into the last third of his (her) life.

 

 

Allah has emphasized this stage of human life very clearly in Qur’an. Please go through Aayah No. 15, Surah Al-Ahqaf, Chapter No. 46, Holy Qur’an.

We have enjoined man to treat his parents with kindness. With much trouble his mother bore him, and much pain did she give him birth. His bearing and his weaning took thirty months. When he reaches the age of full strength and becomes forty years old, he says: “My Rabb! Grant me the grace that I may thank you for the favors which You have bestowed on me and on my parents, and that I may do good deeds that will please You, and grant me good children. Surely I turn to You in repentance and surely I am of those who are Muslims.”
