The meaning of “Dua” is to go on asking Allah about something either spiritual or relating to any material as well. It really becomes interesting as when we ask something repeatedly from humans they began to get feed up and begin to mind if you ask any such thing again. Surely most of the people doing such stuff come up with excuses that they tried their best and stuff. Surely it’s a natural fact human are unable to fulfill the desires and needs of human’s. This scenario is all together opposite when it comes from asking Allah what ever a person wants. He minds if a human doesn’t asks him his needs and doesn’t pray as, Allah created us and it is to whom we all humans have to return too.
One is able to find some wonderful verses in the Quran giving importance on the praying to the lord (Allah) and asking him for one desire and needs. Like in the Holy Quran Allah says “I will respond to you invocations” (90.60). What required by a person is have trust in Allah all the time when he is going making a Dua. Along with this the belief of the person matters a lot when one is asking Allah, some one praying for sake of getting something might not be able to get thetrue and right fruit of a Dua made.
There are several chapters of the Holy Quran, that are actually Dua’s, like Surrah Fatiha. There fore being Muslims it is our sole responsibility that we should go one learning the book of Allah the Quran and try to increase about knowledge of Quran and Dua’s.
What’s required by an individual in following the way as prescribed by Allah Almighty in the Holy Quran is that one should always be good and kind to others no matter what the situation may be. The reference for performing these good deeds comes form these verses of the Holy Quran from the (Surah Ar Rad. 11) that “For every individual there are angels in succession, before and behind him. They guard him with the command of Allah. Verily Allah would never change the condition of the people until or unless they change it themselves. But when Allah willeth punishment with on a person, there can be no turning back on it while nor they will find any one besides him to protect them”. This is reason why our teacher and tutor Quran really relies and gives importance while teaching to be as good and kind to others as one should be able to win the hearts of others.
Here is a hadith of Holy Prophet (PBUH) narrated by Abu Huraira signifying and and supporting the talk of doing good deeds. According to Abu Huraira quotes, Allah Almighty apostle prophet (PBUH) said “The deeds of anyone of you will not save you form the fire of the hell” The prophets preachers replied “Even you o Allah’s Apostle will not be saved by your deeds?” The prophet (PBUH) replied “No even I will not be saved until of unless Allah bestows his mercy upon me. Therefore what is required is to do good deeds sincerely along with worshipping Allah almighty in the parts of afternoon and forenoon in a regular course whereby you will be able to reach the target (Heavens and the Paradise)”. From all of these references quoted one can easily understand the importance of being good and kind to others while also remembering Allah Almighty by praying to him and asking for forgiveness so he can finally win the reward of the Heavens on the Day of Judgment.
