A Believer’s Most Powerful Tool

A believer’s most powerful tool is his dua.

Imam Ibn al-Qayyim says regarding this:

“If Allah did not want to accept your dua, He would have not guided you to make it (in the first place).”

Imam Ibn al-Qayyim

He also said: “Whoever is inspired (By Allah) to supplicate (to Allah), then a response has already been intended for him, for Allah has said:

“Call on me, I will answer you.”

[Ghafir 40:60]

One wise man said: “Why do you worry? For Allah SWT provides for the ant in the dark hole and the fishes in the depth of the oceans. Do you then think that He will forget you?”

“When those few young men took refuge in the cave, they said, ‘our Lord! Have a special mercy and guide us to rationality in our matter’.”

[A-Kahfi 18:10]

That is a supplication that exemplifies depending on Allah and knowing that Allah will provide for firm conviction. It was the conviction of the “people of you with the cave” that saved them. Allah’s response lasted 309 years.
