Respected Mufti Saheb

Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu

Please advise me with regards to the following: Firstly, I do not have the true enthusiasm for the recitation of the Qur’an. Secondly, I am not very inclined to making dua.

Respected Brother

Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu

It gave me pleasure to know that you are punctual with your ma’mulaat (daily practices). May Allah Ta’ala grant you further progress.

When reciting the Qur’an-e-Kareem meditate upon the fact that you are reciting to Allah Ta’ala. Be like a student who is reciting to his Ustaad in a manner where the awe of his Ustaad has engulfed him. Hence recite the Qur’an-e-Kareem with the intention that you are reciting to Allah Ta’ala in such a manner AS IF you can see Him. (This will create the desired enthusiasm)

Also remember that Dua is the essence of Ibadah. Whether it is Zikr, Tilawat or Salaah, the essence of it all is Dua. While keeping in mind Allah Ta’ala’s favours and His kindness, engage in Dua with much humility. Ponder that only He can accept one’s Duas and solve one’s problems. He has commanded us: “Call unto Me, I will accept.” Whosoever is granted the gift of Dua, unlimited mercies are showered upon him. His Dua passes through the seven Heavens...

May Allah Ta’ala help you.
