Read quran with difficulty

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2137 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Mas'ud

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "If anyone recites a letter from Allah's Book he will be credited with a good deed, and a good deed gets a tenfold reward. I do not say that Alif-Lam-Mim are one letter, but alif is a letter, lam is a letter and mim is a letter."


Every believer, must strive to at least learn enough basic Arabic language so that he may be able to recite the Glorious Book of Allah in its original language and earn its due rewards. The Messenger of Allah (saws) said that one who recites the Quran well he will receive a great reward for his worship; but one who strives to recite but does so with great difficulty because of his lack of knowledge and proficiency, such a person will actually have a double reward due to his striving and his efforts.


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 6.459 Narrated by Aisha

The Prophet (saws) said, "Such a person as recites the Qur'an and masters it by heart, will be with the noble righteous scribes (in Heaven). And such a person who exerts himself to learn the Qur'an by heart, and recites it with great difficulty, will have a double reward."


Your Question: When we have problems and hajjats that we need to be fulfilled by the grace of Allah, what are the best duaas and prayers do you recommend?

Every lawful supplication that a believer makes to his Lord, is heard and answered by his Lord; for Allah is indeed All Hearing, All Knowing.


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 186:

And if My servants ask you, O Prophet, concerning Me, tell them that I am quite near to them. I hear and answer the prayer of the suppliant, when he calls on Me. So let them respond to My call and believe in Me. (Convey this to them), perhaps they may be guided aright!


The All Knowing, All Wise Allah knows what is good and what is bad for us; therefore, if one asks for something good, Allah will give him/her one of three things:

1.      Allah will give the believer what he/she has supplicated for.

2.      If what the believer is asking is not good or harmful for the believer in this world, Allah will store it for him for the world of the Hereafter.

3.      If what the believer is asking is not good or harmful for the believer in this world, Allah will turn away from the believer an equivalent amount of evil.


Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2257 Narrated by Abu Sa'id al-Khudri

The Prophet (saws) said, "Any Muslim who makes a supplication containing nothing which is sinful, or which involves breaking ties of relationship, will be given for it by Allah one of three things: He will give him swift answer, or store it up for him in the next world, or turn away from him an equivalent amount of evil." Those who heard it said they would then make many supplications and he (saws) replied that Allah was more ready to answer than they were to ask.


Nu'man b. Bashir reported that the Prophet (saws), said, "Verily supplication is worship."

Narrated by Ahmad and Sunan.


Abu Hurairah reported, "The Prophet (saws) said, "Nothing is more dear to Allah than one's supplication to Him.''

Narrated by Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah.


Ibn Mas'ud reported that the Prophet (saws), said, "If any servant of Allah afflicted with distress or grief makes this supplication, his supplication will be accepted: 'O Allah, I am Your servant, son of Your servant, son of your maidservant. My forehead is in Your hand. Your command conceming me prevails, and Your decision concerning me is just. I call upon You by every one of the beautiful names by which You have described Yourself, or which You have revealed in Your book, or have taught anyone of Your creatures, or which You have chosen to keep in the knowledge of the unseen with You, to make the Qur'an the delight of my heart, the light of my breast, and remover of my griefs, sorrows, and afflictions'." A supplication in these words will be answered. Allah will remove one's affliction and replace it with joy and happiness.


Salman reported that the Prophet (saws), said, "Your Lord, the Blessed and the Exalted One, is Modest and Generous, and He loathes to turn away His servant empty-handed when he raises his hands to Him in supplication."

Narrated by Ahmad and Ibn Hibban.


Abdallah b. 'Umar reported that the Prophet (saws) said, "Hearts are like vessels, some more attentive and capacious than others. When you supplicate Allah you should be certain of being answered, and know that Allah does not answer a supplication that comes from a careless and inattentive heart."

Narrated by Ahmad


Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2248 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "There are three whose supplication is not rejected: one who has just ended a fast, a just imam, and one who has been wronged, whose supplication is raised by Allah above the clouds and for which the gates of Heaven are opened. The Lord says, 'I swear by My might that I shall certainly help you, though it be after some time.'"


Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet (saws) said, "Your supplication will be answered if you are not impatient, and if you do not say, 'I supplicated but my supplication was not heard'."

Narrated by Malik.


In light of the above aayah and the various narrations from the Messenger of Allah (saws), it is evident that no lawful supplication a believer makes unto his Lord Most Gracious, is ever left unanswered.


There are some times and places which are more opportune than others and the Messenger of Allah (saws) guided the believers to make supplications during these times in earnest to their Lord Most Gracious.


These are the day of 'Arafah, the month of Ramadan, Fridays, the last part of the night, at dawn, during prostration, at the time of rainfall, between the adhan and iqamah, at the time of encounter of armies, at times of panic, and when one's heart is soft and tender.


Abu Umamah reported, "The Prophet (saws) was asked, 'What supplication finds the greatest acceptance?' He (saws) answered: 'A prayer offered in the middle of the latter part of the night and after the prescribed Prayers'.'

Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet (saws) said, "The servant is nearest to his Lord when he is prostrating to Him, so make supplication in this state."

Related by Muslim.


The Messenger of Allah (saws) also guided and warned the believers to avoid and abstain from certain acts and deeds which may result in ones supplication being unanswered:


Sahih Muslim Hadith 2214 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah

Allah's Messenger (saws) then made a mention of a person who travels widely, his hair dishevelled and covered with dust. He lifts his hand towards the sky (and thus makes the supplication): "O Lord, O Lord." whereas his diet is unlawful, his drink is unlawful, his clothes are unlawful, and his nourishment is unlawful. Then how can his supplication be accepted?


The best procedure or format when making supplication is to:

  1. First glorify and extol the Lord Most High as He Alone Deserves to be Glorified.
  2. Then declare ones state of obedience and helplessness in all humility to the Lord Most High.
  3. Then make the supplications one wishes to make.
  4. And finally end the supplication by reciting the durood for the Messenger of Allah (saws).


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
