Endeavour to call on Allah in the best manner.
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.
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
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]
