Immersed as we are in this materialistic world, many of us forget that material causes do
not produce the desired effects independently of the Will of Allah. We forget to achieve total reliance on Allah and we often neglect to implement the moral causes for achieving our goals. One such moral cause that has become forgotten today is Dua, the humble supplication of a believer to Allah. Even when it is remembered, it is not performed in the correct way and comes out weak. We can strengthen our Dua by fulfilling the conditions for its acceptance and observing the manners of its performance.
