Channel: Yasir Qadhi
Shaykh Yasir Qadhi talks about Allah’s promise in answering dua. One of the most powerful verses in the Qur’an that ascertains the acceptability of any dua is as follows.
ادْعُونِي أَسْتَجِبْ لَكُمْ
Call on Me, I will answer your prayer.
[Surah Ghafir, 40:60]
There are three ways in which a dua is accepted.
- You will get what you want
- You will get something equivalent for the dua you asked
- Any calamity that was in your way will be averted
The Shaykh implores us to never be stingy in asking duas to Allah. The more you ask Allah, the more He will love us.

ala alihi wa sahbihi wa ala hammerberg. Because of our fundraiser we'll have a very short quarter and then move on. One of the most powerful verses in the Quran about Dora is what color of Boko Moroni, a statue of Allah, your Lord has said he has announced, make dua and I will respond to you. This is a clausal condition in Arabic we call a shelter when you have a condition, if you make dua, then I will respond to you. What this means is very simple. Every single day, will be responded to by Allah. And this is something that is explicitly mentioned in the Hadith. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there is no servant of Allah that makes Dora except that Allah will give him
what he wants, or will give him something equivalent, or will avert a calamity away one of three things you make do are all I want this job, oh, well, I want to be rich, well I went to child and if you are sincere, and the conditions of are met, and there are no impediments, what are called milania then you are guaranteed that Allah will respond, what will that response be one of three things number one, you will get what you asked for. Number two, you will get something equivalent, Allah knows that's not good for you. So something equivalent that is good for you, you will get it or number three, a calamity that was destined for you is diverted away. So you will get something
for everything that you asked for. When the Sahaba heard this, they said the rule of law if that is the case, even we will ask for a lot. What prevents us from asking more and more and more. If every single job we will get something back? Well, then we will ask more and more and more even necec theory. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam smiled and said, Allahu
Allah is much more than what you can ask for a law who Allah is more than what you can ask for. So my dear brothers and sisters, never ever, ever be stingy in your draft. Our Prophet sallallahu Sallam said a hedonist the most stingy of people man died and a dog who's too stingy to make dua, make dua for each and everything. ask Allah and continue to ask a lot and never be stingy to ask Allah subhana wa Tada, one of our scholars of the past said, the son of Adam, the more you ask him, the more irritated he gets with you. But Allah The more you ask him, the more he loves you, the son of Adam, the more you ask, the more you'll want nothing to do with you, even your best friend, how
much can you ask from him before he'll get tired, but Allah subhanho wa Taala The more you ask, the more he will love you. And I conclude with this famous quote of I shall have the loved one that will mother and the most beloved wife of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. She said, if your shoelace breaks, make dua that Allah gives you a new shoelace, because unless Allah has willed it, you won't get a new shoelace. The point of this is never trivialize your job. If your shoelace breaks you don't have a shoelace. May Allah give me another one that is not trivial in the eyes of Allah, you are showing a law you are the abbot and he is the rob you are showing Allah you need everything. So
ask and ask Allah and ask Allah for all of your needs, and ask the big needs in the small needs and as the needs of the archaea and the needs of this dunya and continue to ask Allah The more you ask a law, the more Allah subhana wa tada will love you
