Featuring inspirational real-life stories from those who have experienced miraculous results from living with du’a, this book is a comforting guide to revive and develop a close relationship with Al Mujeeb – The One Who Responds. Through life’s challenges and struggles, with tools from the Qur’an and Sunnah, you will learn how to:

  • 'Du'aa or supplication is one of the cornerstones of worship in Islam. Almighty Allah wants us to worship Him by calling out to Him, asking Him, seeking His help and even begging Him. He creates a situation of helplessness or just a simple need in our lives to give us the opportunity to reach out to Him. This must be done in the correct way. The way taught by the Prophet Muhammad pbuh.

    This book teaches us what we need to know about Du'aa and supplication; the correct way and the ideal wording. I believe it will be of great benefit to those who want their doors flung open by Allah. It empowers us in a unique way in this topic.

    May Allah Almighty bless Aliyah Umm Raiyaan and accept her effort. May He guide us to worship Him the way He wants and accept our supplications. Aameen.'
