The Method Of Supplicating

Hakeemul Ummat Ashraf Ali Thanvi (r.a.) writes, “Supplicate to Allah in such a way that your whole heart is attentive and your heart is full of pain. If you feel it is not in your control to induce this pain, focusing your attention is in your control. And there should at least be this much attention as when you are giving an appeal in a big Court. Gentlemen, that dua which is made attentively is often times accepted. There is no doubt of the doctor’s presense but if there is no pain, then what can the doctor do? There are different ways to supplicate. One is to supplicate after every prayer. Another is that everyone come together and meet in a desolate area and from there supplicate to Allah Ta’ala, where you have peace of mind. Which ever appears easier adopt that one; this is the way rather than that which people have popularized these days. Whichever task you take on, begin from His door. And the door for every task is the same.” (Translated from Khutbaat e Hakeemul Ummat: Volume 19)
