14 Nov How to make Dua: Tip #54
Times when Dua is answered: When waking up at night
A person who wakes up in the middle of the night for whatever reason, and remembers Allah, then his dua will be accepted.
When a person wakes up in the middle of the night, only to go back to sleep again, if he remembers Allah at this time, his dua will be accepted. The Prophet [May Peace and Blessings be upon him] said: “Whoever wakes up at night, and says:
‘La ilaha illa Allah Wahdahu la sharika lah, lahu al mulk wa lahu al-hamd wa huwa ala kulli shay’in Qadir. Alhamdulillah, wa SubhanAllah, wa la ilaha illa Allah, wa Allahu akbar, wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa bi Allah’, and then says, ‘O Allah, forgive me!’ or makes a dua, then he will be responded to. And if he performs wudu and prays, then his prayer will be accepted. [al-Bukhari #1154]
