Episode 18: The Power of Supplication
Supplication (dua) is one of the greatest tools we have. While Ramadan is usually a time we focus on that, this episode shares why it’s important as a daily routine.
“Fasting has been prescribed upon you, as it was prescribed on those before you” 2:183
“Remind them of the days of God” 14:5
“If you sought to count the blessings of God you would not be able to enumerate them” 16:18
“Supplication is worship”, Ahmad
“Supplication is the head of worship”, al-Tirmidhi
“Whoever doesn’t ask God, He becomes upset with”, Ahmad
“Ask God and be certain in the response”, al-Tirmidhi and al-Hakim
