Dua is the Weapon of the Believer

14May09

Ibrahim ibn Adham (rahimahullah) was asked, “Why is it when we make dua that we are not responded to?”

He replied, “Because you know Allah, yet you do not obey him. And you know the Prophet (S) but do not follow his sunnah. And you know the Quran but do not act upon it. And you eat from the blessings of Allah, but you do not express gratitude for it. And you know jannah, yet you do not strive for it. And you know jahannam, yet you do not run away from it. And you know the Shaitan, but you do not fight him, instead you obey him. And you know death, but you do not prepare yourselves for it. And you bury the dead, but you do not learn a lesson from it. And you have left your own faults, and instead busy yourself finding the faults of others.”
