Dua and it’s relationship to ‘Aqidah

Du’aa and it’s relationship to ‘Aqidah

Du’aa has a very deep and strong relationship with one’s aqeedah and tawheed, and thus it also has a directly profound relationship with the status of one’s eemaan (iman – faith). The very action of a person making du’ā shows his or her complete inability to do anything without Allaah () granting this to them and thus the person recognizes the perfection of Allaah ()’s Names and Attributes and His ability to Hear, Respond, and Grant or Bestow upon His servants His Infinite Mercy, Generosity, and Beneficence.

Another manner in which the relationship between du’aa and aqeedah is established is the relationship of one making the du’aa and his recognition of all the aspects of tawheed within this act. When one makes du’aa to Allaah () he is recognizing that Allah () exists and He alone is the True Lord, thus the supplicant is asking Allaah () alone, this is evident in the kaafir as well, but the Muslim’s du’aa is more likely to be answered than the kaafir’s as the kaafir only asks Allaah () alone when he is in a helpless situation. And upon this the supplicant also acknowledges that Allaah () alone is the one to be asked and the one to be worshiped, and the act itself necessitates that he recognizes that Allaah () Hears and Responds to his du’aa, thus affirming Allaah ()’s Perfect Names and Attributes, and He recognizes that Allah () is All Hearing and is the Most Gracious and Most Merciful to grant him his du’aa.
