What is the link between Ramadan and dua?
five consecutive verses from Chapter two have been dedicated to the topic of Ramadan. Take a look at their summaries. And I will list the number and topic and something will become apparent first 183 rulings about fasting, first 184 rulings about fasting, verse 185, rulings about fasting, verse 186 Dua, verse 187, rulings about fasting, sticks out doesn't take the flow of the Ramadan related verses are suddenly interrupted with the topic of dua, before then returning to the topic of Ramadan. Allah wants us to spill our hearts out in requests this month. This year is Ramadan, do something different. Remove the roof of your DUA and ask for the unimaginable. Think about the
prophets do before us they were bold enough to ask Allah Almighty for what many people would have described as an utter impossibility. Consider the dua of Sulaiman when he let his ambitions free. And he said our bill Philippe might not give me what I believe we can now you really had embody in that candle Wahab grant me a kingdom that will not belong to anyone after me.

Beg Allah for entry into gender without any prior accountability, be bold enough to ask. And if you if you feel that you don't deserve it, still ask. Don't limit your requests for Paradise beg Allah for the very highest of it. And so those, even if you feel that you don't qualify, don't limit your DUA to the guidance of friends and relatives beg Allah to turn them into revivalists. Even if you really can't see it happening at present.

This month, every one of us is bowing and prostrating and fasting and reciting this Ramadan. We want to exercise another act of worship that Allah Almighty loves so much, but he's missed all too often. And that is to display the best of expectations from Allah Almighty, particularly when you are making dua. So Allah Almighty has not kept you. So call upon Allah whilst you are certain of the response
