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 Quraan Majeed. Secondly, I am not much inclined towards du‘aa.

Assalamu ‘alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

When reciting the Quraan Majeed, meditate upon the fact that you are reciting to Allah Ta‘ala. Be like a student who is reciting to his ustaaz while the awe of the ustaaz has engulfed him. Hence recite the Quraan Majeed 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 du‘aa is the essence of ‘ibaadah. Whether it is zikr, tilaawah or salaah, the essence of it all is du‘aa. Keeping in mind Allah Ta‘ala’s favours and His kindness, engage in du‘aa with much humility. Ponder that only He can accept one’s du‘aa and solve one’s problems. He has commanded us, “Call unto Me, I will accept.” Whosoever is granted the gift of du‘aa, unlimited mercies are showered upon him. His du‘aa passes through the seven heavens. May Allah Ta‘ala help you. (Maktoobaat vol. 1, pg. 71)
