What is a supplication or a quranic supplication? What is its importance? Supplications are requests a person submits to his Sustainer and Provider. Whenever a person is afflicted by trouble, he cries out: “Ya Allah, Ya Raheem! (O Allah! O Compassionate One!). Allah has ordained that His slaves should call Him and promised that He will answer their requests. 

Supplication in itself is a great act of worship. According to a narration:

الدعاء هو العبادة

Supplication is an act of Worship

(سنن الترمذي: 2969)

And also Allah Almighty has urged us to make supplications in many verses of His dear book:

وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِی عَنِّی فَإِنِّی قَرِیبٌۖ أُجِیبُ دَعۡوَةَ ٱلدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِۖ فَلۡیَسۡتَجِیبُوا۟ لِی وَلۡیُؤۡمِنُوا۟ بِی لَعَلَّهُمۡ یَرۡشُدُونَ

When My servants ask you ˹O Prophet˺ about Me: I am truly near. I respond to one’s prayer when they call upon Me. So let them respond ˹with obedience˺ to Me and believe in Me, perhaps they will be guided ˹to the Right Way˺

(البقرة: 186)

Allah Almighty also says:

أَمَّن یُجِیبُ ٱلۡمُضۡطَرَّ إِذَا دَعَاهُ وَیَكۡشِفُ ٱلسُّوۤءَ وَیَجۡعَلُكُمۡ خُلَفَاۤءَ ٱلۡأَرۡضِۗ أَءِلَـٰهࣱ مَّعَ ٱللَّهِۚ قَلِیلࣰا مَّا تَذَكَّرُونَ

Or ˹ask them,˺ “Who responds to the distressed when they cry to Him, relieving ˹their˺ affliction, and ˹Who˺ makes you successors in the earth? Is it another god besides Allah? Yet you are hardly mindful!”

(النمل: 62)

Imam Ibn Katheer – may God have mercy on him – said: The Almighty warns that He is the one who is called upon during adversity and is desired in times of calamity.

Supplications have two types in Islam:

  1. Dua al-Ibadah (Supplications of worship)
  2. Dua al-Mas’alah (Supplications of Asking)

The first type is all about the acts regarding the praise of Allah like Surah Fatiha, Ayat-ul-Kursi etc and the second one is all about the asking of the man before Allah for forgiveness, goodness, paradise, ease for this life and the hereafter etc. According to the etiquettes of Quranic Supplication and Islamic duas, every Muslim should memorize both kinds of Supplications and supplicate according to the Holy Sunnah.

Most of the people don’t know how to pray according to the Sunnah, which prayers are prohibited, which are authentic, which are related to a specific time, place and method etc. So, there is a need to guide the people in this regard. The supplications book “Golden Supplications for children” by Abdul Malik Mujahid will be helpful in all these aspects and it especially caters to children and young readers.

Supplication is the ultimate solution for human problems whether they be physical or spiritual. On the other hand if a man doesn’t pray to Allah, Allah become angry with him, as the Holy Prophet (PBUH) said:

مَن لم يسأَلِ اللهَ، يغضَبْ عليه

he who does not ask Allah, he gets angry with him.

(الترمذي: 3373)


Al-Mubarakfuri رحمه الله said: Because neglecting the question (before Allah) is arrogant and despised, and this is not permissible for a man.

And in the same way, the messenger of Allah said:

إن ربَّكم تبارك وتعالى حييٌّ كريمٌ، يستحيي من عبده إذا رفع يديه إليه أن يردهما صِفرًا

Your Lord is munificent and generous and is ashamed to turn away empty the hands of His servant when he raises them to Him

(أبو داود: 1488)

He (PBUH) also said:

مَن سره أن يستجيب اللهُ له عند الشدائد والكرب، فليُكثر الدُّعاء في الرخاء

“Whoever wishes that Allah would respond to him during hardship and grief, then let him supplicate plentifully when at ease.”

(الترمذي: 3382)

All these Quranic verses and Ahadith indicate that a Muslim must supplicate before Allah in every situation but as per the Sunnah.

Extract 01: Take a look at this supplication for the ease of troubles

Supplication for Ease of Troubles

 اللَّهمَّ لا سَهلَ إلّا ما جَعَلتَه سَهلًا، وأنتَ تَجعَلُ الحَزْنَ إذا شِئتَ سَهلًا.

Allaahumma laa sahla illaa maa ja`altahu sahlan wa ‘Anta taj`alul-hazna ‘ithaa shi’ta sahlan.

O Allah, there is no ease other than what You make easy. If You please, You ease sorrow. (As Sahiha 2886)

Explanation:

In the Arabic language, the word

الحَزْنَ

Refers to the hard and uneven part of the earth and the word

سَهلَ

Refers to the soft and even parts of the earth. Here

الحَزْنَ

Means troubles and

سَهلَ

Means ease.

In this supplication, a person invokes Allah that nothing is difficult for Him. Allah and Allah alone can convert the troubles and hardships of His servants into comfort and ease.

O Allah! Save me from all hardships of this world and the Hereafter and bless me with ease and comfort.

As seen above all the supplications included contain their English translation and explanation. This step by step collection of supplications is the best way to learn.
