The Virtue of Supplication

All Praise and Thanks are Allah’s, who has guides us to the right path and has been merciful to us.

 

And Allah said, “Invoke Me (and ask Me for anything) and I will respond (to your invocation). Verily! Those who scorn My worship will surely enter Hell in humiliation!”
[ Al-Ghafir 40:60]

And Allah said, “And when My slaves ask you concerning Me, then (answer them) that indeed I am near (to them by My Knowledge). I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls on Me (without any mediator or intercessor). So let them obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may be led aright.”
[Al-Baqarah 2:186]

The Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Supplication is worship and your Lord says, ‘Invoke Me (and ask Me for anything) and I will respond (to your invocation).’”
[Abu Dawud 2/78, At Tirmidhi 5/211, Ibn Majah 2/1258]

And he (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Verily, your Lord the most Blessed and High is living and most generous, and as such is embarrassed to turn away the raised (and supplicating) hands of His servant with nothing.”
[Abu Dawud 2/78, At Tirmidhi 5/557, Ibn Majah 2/1271]

And he (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “There is no Muslim that supplicates to Allah with a supplication that contains neither sin nor the cutting of family ties, without Allah granting him one of three things: A swift response to the supplication, delay a response (and consequent reward) until the hereafter, or preventing evil (to the equivalent of the supplication) that may afflict the supplicant.” They (the Companions) said, “In that case we shall increase (in our supplications)” to which the Prophet replied, “Allah is the Most (effortlessly able to facilitate and respond to such an increase)!”
[At Tirmidhi 5/566, 5/462, Ahmad 3/18]
