MAKING doa (supplication) and engaging in the remembrance of Allah is one of the ways of gaining barakah (divine blessings) in our lives. Our pious predecessors made the habit of engaging in Zikir and making doa an integral part of their life; as a result, they moved mountains and achieved so much within the same short lifespan that people of our time live through!
It was this barakah, this divine blessing from Allah, that aided them and allowed them to achieve more in their lives. By taking on this productive habit ourselves and making it a part of our lives, we too can increase in our productivity, accomplish more in our time and move mountains by Allah’s permission.
So where do we start? Let’s get ourselves the pocket-sized book called Hisnul Muslim (Fortress of the Muslim) which is a compilation of authentic doa from the Quran and Sunnah. Keep this book within your reach all the time so that you can read and benefit from it.
Alternatively, if you do not prefer to carry a book with you all the time then good news for you! You can download a doa application onto your smartphone and read doa from there.
Among the best doa apps are the Dua & Azkar app by Ahsanul Haque, the Muslim Kids Series ‘Dua’ by Yufid Inc, and Hisnul Muslim Collection.
