Du’aa and its Method

Endeavour to call on Allah in the best manner.

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ once heard a person making du‘ā’ during prayer. He did not glorify Allah nor invoke salawāt upon the Messenger of Allah ﷺ. The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: ‘He was too hasty’.

He ﷺ called him and said, ‘When one of you makes du‘ā’, he should start off with praising and glorifying His Lord, and should then invoke salawāt on the Prophet. He should then make du‘ā’ for whatever he wishes.

(Abū Dāwūd)

Step 1: Praise Allah SWT

Step 2: Sending Salutations

Step 3: Ask Allah SWT by His Beautiful Names

Step 4: Seek Forgiveness 

Step 5: Display one’s utter need of Allah SWT, with humility, desperation, and dependency.  Make dua from the depths of your heart, having Yaqeen (firm conviction) that Allah will answer it

‘The best and most beneficial dhikr is when one remembers Allah
with the tongue and the heart,
it is from the Sunnah adhkar,
and one is conscious of its meaning and its purpose.’

[Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah رَحِمَهُ ٱللَّٰهُ]
