Hoping for Guidance from Allah

  • There is no easier act of worship that we can do in order to bring ourselves closer to our Creator, than to supplicate or make du’a. In fact, the Prophet (s.a.w.) once mentioned that there is no deed more noble than to supplicate to Allah (s.w.t.).



  • Making supplications is a way to express our servitude to Allah. As His servants, we beg and ask Allah to grant us His assistance and guidance. Making supplications is a source of guidance and it gives us spiritual strength and resilience. It provides us with self-will and persistence in going through times of ease and hardship in life.



  • However, in addition to supplicating for guidance, Allah also instructs every individual to strive and make effort in seeking His guidance. If one wishes to attain knowledge, one must put in due effort to seek knowledge.
