In this era of advanced technology, we can easily connect and communicate with the entire world. However, when last did we communicate with the Creator of the world? We speak to people about the different problems and challenges that we go through. Yet, when will we speak to our All-Hearing Allah Ta‘ala, the only Being who can resolve our problems?
If we ask people to fulfil some of our basic needs, we are humiliated and are regarded as beggars. However, if we ask Allah Ta‘ala for our needs, then we are honoured and we become the beloved of Allah Ta‘ala. Our duty is to turn to Allah Ta‘ala in du‘aa (supplication) over and over again. Allah Ta‘ala, in his divine wisdom, will definitely answer our du‘aas in unique ways.
At times our minds are so anchored in wanting to see our du‘aas answered in a certain way, that we completely fail to see and appreciate that our du‘aas have been answered, but in many other ways. Allah Ta‘ala knows best when to give us, how to give us and how much to give us. All we need to do is to keep on asking Allah Ta‘ala.
