14 Nov How to make Dua: Tip #52
Times when Dua is answered: Dua after the Salaah
It is mentioned in a hadith that a dua after the obligatory prayer is the most likely to be responded to.
Abu Umamah al-Bahili asked the Prophet, “O Messenger of Allah! Which dua is the most likely to be responded to?” The Prophet [May Peace and Blessings be upon him] replied: “In the last part of the night, and after the obligatory prayers.” [al-Tirmidhi #3499]
The Prophet [May Peace and Blessings be upon him] stressed this time period to Mu’adh ibn Jabal when he said: “O Mu’adh! I swear by Allah, I love you. Therefore, do not forget to say after each prayer, ‘O Allah help me to remember You, and to thank You, and to perfect my worship for You’. [Abu Dawud, Ahmad, and al-Nasa’i, from Mu’adh ibn Jabal, Sahih al-Jami #7969]
