The Importance of Du’a

Student of Islam posts a wonderful reminder about the importance of an oft-neglected form of worship – du’a:

Duí„ is asking Allah for help or for the fulfilment of a particular need. It expresses a slaveís helplessness and dependence on Allah, the All-Powerful and Merciful. It is the channel through which one gets directly in touch with oneís Creator…

Nowadays, duí„ has become a mere ritual. It has become a routine practice which one is accustomed to perform at certain times of the day. People raise their hands for a few moments at the time of duí„, uttering a few words, some consciously, and some without even realising what they are asking for.
