14 Nov How to make Dua: Tip #35
To make dua for all matters
One should make Dua for all matters, whether that is something which seems insignificant, or something great.
Another common mistake that many people fall into is that they only ask Allah for matters that are of great importance to them. However, Allah should be asked for every matter, large or small. This is because everything occurs by Allah’s Will, so if Allah does not Will it, it will not occur, no matter how trivial the matter may be. This is why ‘A’ishah, the beloved wife of the Prophet [May the Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him], said: “Ask Allah for everything, even if it is only a shoe-lace, because if Allah does not make it easy, then it will not be possible”. [al-Tirmidhi #4/292]
