The Proper Way To Make Dua

Dua[450x285]

Question: I would like to know the proper way to make du’aa’ during prayer, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) did it. Is it after the prayer or between the two prostrations or whilst standing or when?

By: Shaykh Muhammad Saalih al-Munajjid

Answer: Praise be to Allah. 

First:

Note that there is not one particular part of the prayer when du’aa’ should be offered, rather there are several parts of the prayer where the scholars have stated that the Messenger of Allah offered du’aa’, from the opening takbeer to the final tasleem.

It is also Sunnah to make du’aa’ after the prayer and there are several du’aa’s that we will mention below insh’allah. It should be noted that the best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad and the best of du’aa’s are those which are in accordance with the Sunnah of the Prophet . The wording of the Messenger of Allah is the best of wording, because he is the most knowledgeable of all people about the Arabic language, and the most eloquent in speech. Allah enabled him to express the most profound of meanings in few words, which is called conciseness of speech.

It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah said: I heard the Messenger of Allah say:
“I have been sent with concise speech.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 6611; Muslim, 523. 

Al-Bukhaari said: I heard that conciseness of speech means when many meanings which it would have taken books to write before are summed up in a phrase or two, and so on.

Based on this, if you want to say du’aa’ in your prayers at the points at which it is prescribed and recommended (mustahabb) to say du’aa’, the best of du’aa’s are those which are said in the wording of the Prophet .
