The virtue of supplication


 

Supplication is one of the greatest acts of worship; rather, it is worship itself as the Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ), said because it implies the humiliation of beseeching and being in need of Allah The Almighty, which show the real aspects of servitude to Him. Therefore, it is the most honorable act in the sight of Allah The Almighty as the Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ), said: “There is nothing dearer to Allah than supplication.” [At-Tirmithi] [Ibn Maajah: Hasan]


 

If a person calls upon his Lord, His Lord Is closer to him than himself as Allah The Almighty Says (what means): {And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me - indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided] [Quran 2:186]


 

Ibn Katheer  may  Allah  have  mercy  upon  him said, “Allah stated this verse, which guides one to make supplication, between the verses of fasting in order to urge us to be diligent in supplication when completing the fast, and every time when breaking the fast, as ‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Amr, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) said: “When breaking his fast, the fasting person has a supplication that will not be rejected.” [Ibn Maajah]


 

What great blessings: a supplication that will not be rejected when breaking the fast, an answered supplication in the last third of the night, and a night that is better than a thousand months of continuous worship! Supplicating during that night is better than supplicating during one thousand months. What a great virtue! Who is the one who will control his desire, seize the opportunity of goodness, compete in obedience and make sincere supplications?


 

Make sure you take advantage of these ten nights. Show your best deeds to Allah The Almighty. You may strive for a few days that will be your path to eternal happiness. Everyone goes through these days: both the hardworking ones and the heedless; but their actions differ, so do not let the devil deceive you, and do not lose opportunities in these days as you may have lost others.


 

In Ramadan, we experience the best nights, in which gifts are multiplied, the mercy of Allah The Almighty descends, faults are forgiven, and the ranks of believers are elevated.


 

Does it make sense to waste these nights in frivolities, when the Lord of the worlds descends to the lowest heaven to fulfill our needs? He looks at the worshipers, while they are involved in acts of obedience and submission, seeking forgiveness, asking sincerely, repeating in supplication: O our Lord, O our Lord! Their hearts became soft upon hearing the Quran, they are eager to meet The King, and their eyes are full of tears out of fear of Allah The Almighty. Who deserves the mercy of Allah The Almighty –those who seek His pleasure or those who spend their nights in doing what Allah The Almighty has forbidden, and were heedless about supplicating Him? How much did they lose when it is the time for gaining profits? Wretched are their deeds, how weak is their resolution! Can they not be patient for a few nights?


 

Who will invest in such a profitable time?


 

This is the time of gaining profits. During these nights needs are fulfilled, so seek the fulfillment of your needs with Allah The Almighty. Supplication is one of the most honorable acts of worship in the sight of Allah, He does not disappoint any Muslim who supplicates Him. Allah The Almighty Says (what means):


 

·        {And your Lord Says, "Call upon Me; I will respond to you."}[Quran 40:60]


 

·         {Call upon your Lord in humility and privately; indeed, He does not like transgressors And cause not corruption upon the earth after its reformation. And invoke Him in fear and aspiration. Indeed, the mercy of Allah is near to the doers of good}[Quran 7:55-56]


 

The relationship between fasting and supplication


 

The verses on fasting were followed by the mention of supplication. Allah The Almighty Says (what means):  {And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me - indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided} [Quran 2:186] Some scholars of Tafseer  (Quranic exegesis) said, "There is an indication in this verse that the fasting person’s supplication is likely to be answered, that all the supplications during the month of Ramadan are likely to be answered, and that it is recommended to make supplication at the end of each day of Ramadan. Allah gets angry if He is not asked, as the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) said: ‘Allah gets angry at the one who does not ask Him.’ [Ahmad and At-Tirmithi]”
