Dua For seeking Allah’s help In English – 2

I only complain of my suffering and my grief to Allah, and I know from Allah that which you do not know.
Surah Yusuf – 12:86

Seek help from Allah

Darkness everywhere! No Exit! Where should I go? Impossible to see a single ray of light! There is no place to breathe, I feel too stifled, I have no sign of slacking, I need help, and if someone likes, come and help me … And suddenly, my eyes open and I wake up. Oh! Thank you it was just a dream. Reciting the Dua For seeking Allah’s help will surely lead you to the right path. 

But similar feelings arise when we are in trouble and find no way out. We desperately need help, but there is no one to help us. We need support, but no one offers. We are alone; no one accompanies us.

We do not find anyone behind us to help us in our struggle for the right. There does not seem to be any solution to our frustrations. In such conditions, everyone can easily become hopeless and lose their strength. Sometimes the conditions become so worse that people start thinking about suicide and some even commit it.

Our Quraan guide gives us a tricky procedure to follow.

“Say he is the Most Merciful. We believe in him and we put all our trust in him. “(67:29)

Strong faith in Allah:

A true Muslim or Momin never becomes hopeless because he has a deep faith in Allah Almighty. Who are the controllers of the universe and everything that happens around the universe? While reciting the kalimah, we trust Allah completely, and it is a crucial part of Emanah to have absolute trust in Allah.

Abu Huraira said the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) had been announced. A strong believer is better and more kind to Allah than a weak believer, and there is good in everyone, (but) cherish what gives you an advantage (in the hereafter) and look for help with Allah and do not lose heart if something (trouble-shaped) comes to you, do not say: if I did not do it, it would not have happened in such a way, but say: Allah did what he commanded to do and your “if” opens the door of Satan

 [Sahih Muslim Book 33 #6441]

The very beginning of Holy Scripture blesses us, tackling the same problem in a very complete way. It is reported that Surah e Fatiha is the essence or heart of AlQuran as a whole. And the verse mentioned below is the heart of all Surah.

“You alone we worship, and from You alone, we seek help,” [Surah Fatiha]

This deep, brief but complete ayah contains a lot of beauty. The first part of this ayah is free of all minds and the second part declares total trust, faith and dependence on Allah. Such an affirmation would naturally lead to putting oneself in the hands of Allah in all areas. And therefore, there is no obstacle to the help of ALLAH, who approaches his supplication.

‘He is the Lord of the East and the West; there is no god but He; so take Him for a guardian.’ (73:9)

 How To Get Help Of ALLAH :

Under the authority of Abu al-Abbas, Abdullah bin Abbass (RA) said, “One day I was behind the Prophet (SAW) [on the same mount] and he told me: “Young man, I’ll teach you a few words [of advice]: Think of Allah and Allah will protect you. Remember Allah and you will find him before you.

Only ask Allah; for help if you are looking for help, ask Allah for help. Know that if the nation were to come together for you to benefit from anything, it would only benefit you from something that Allah had already prescribed to you, and if they would come together to harm you, they would not you would do harm only with something that Allah would have had. already prescribed for you.

Getting what we want in today’s technological environment has gotten much too simple—far too simple. We can buy practically anything on Amazon or eBay. We can order whatever food we want and have it delivered to our door in twenty minutes. We can have endless free entertainment and a massive social network while sitting at home.

The disadvantage of all of this is that we have become overly accustomed to rapid pleasure in everything. This has shortened our attention span (a subject often explored in educational systems) and made us impatient. We carry this impatience into our dua– we want immediate results or we lose hope.

But enlisting Allah’s assistance isn’t like ordering pizza online. We cannot demand from Allah if He does not respond; all in the cosmos is His. He is our Rabb, and we are His property. If our prayers are not being answered, we should consider whether there is something wrong with our attitude or approach to asking aid. Let us see how Allah, the Master, wants us to seek assistance.
1. Requesting Forgiveness

We must first clear our hearts of debris before approaching Allah for assistance.

Ask your Lord for forgiveness. Indeed, He is an Everlasting Forgiver. He will send [rain from] the sky onto you in [continuous] showers, multiply your wealth and children, and create gardens and rivers for you. [Quran, 71:10-12]

2. Helping yourself

إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوْمٍ حَتَّىٰ يُغَيِّرُوا مَا بِأَنفُسِهِمْ

… Indeed, Allah will not transform a people’s position unless they modify what is in themselves… [Quran, 13:11]

Make certain that you have done everything feasible. Even Maryam alaihi salam had to shake the tree before receiving its good fruits to eat while in labour. and the trunk of the palm tree will sway toward you, dropping luscious, fresh dates on you. [Quran, 19:25]

3. Obedience to Allah and avoidance of Haram

وَهُوَ يَتَوَلَّى الصَّالِحِينَ

And He is a friend (Wali) to the upright (saliheen). [Quran, 7:96]

We must ensure that we are doing all possible to meet Allah’s instructions and avoiding anything He has banned. The Prophet told the story of a ragged traveller who sought assistance:

He extends out his hands to the heavens and says, ‘O Lord, O Lord,’ although his food, drink, and clothing are all haraam. How can his du’aa’ be acceptable if he is fed by haraam? [Muslim]

4. Prayer

وَاسْتَعِينُوا بِالصَّبْرِ وَالصَّلَاةِ ۚ وَإِنَّهَا لَكَبِيرَةٌ إِلَّا عَلَى الْخَاشِعِينَ

And seek assistance via patience and prayer, which is difficult save for the humbly submissive. [Quran, 2:45]

First and foremost, pray the necessary prayers on time and with focus. Be mindful of what you say in prayer. Make a heartfelt prayer that causes your eyes to water. In the preceding ayah, Allah states that requesting assistance will be extremely difficult, except for those who have khushu’, or consciousness of Allah.

Consider this:

Allah says in the Quran that He answers whoever calls on Him and that He is All-Hearing and All-Seeing. He understands the darkest secrets of our hearts, and He knows us better than we know ourselves. He said,

وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ ۖ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ ۖ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُوا لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُوا بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ

And when My servants question you about Me, [O Muhammad], know that I am near. When the supplicant summons Me, I reply to his invocation. So let them obey Me and believe in Me so that they may be [rightly] guided. [Quran, 2:186]

 Some points to take care of:

Now, you have to be filled with certain things.
 1) No one else ALLAH subhana huwatala deserves to be revered.
2) you can not even associate anyone with Allah in worship. His shirk
3) We must therefore ask Allah’s help only.
4) And while calling ALLAH for help, we need to strengthen our total trust in him.
5) Avoid shirk while praying for help.

Dear Muslims! The point we are trying to address here is that shirk does not mean simply worshiping or attributing divine powers to an entity other than ALLAH, but also having self-confidence, or loving or obeying an entity other than ALLAH at level that is deserved by Allah only is also shirk. ALWAYS SEEK FOR HELP:

So in the case of praying or seeking help, we must be careful to pray to someone else in case of need or distress. There is a kind of support that every man seeks from others. As for a haircut, you have to go to the barber’s; if you go to an unknown place, you can ask a friend for help.

For our daily needs, we must obtain services or help from the blacksmith, the tailor, the carpenter, and so on. Basically, the problem may not lie in the type of help we seek, but in the way we seek help. One can be guilty of shirk under two conditions: 1) If someone seeks help from another person, a saint, a prophet, an angle, etc., considering him as almighty, as Allah. 2)

To believe in the omnipotence of ALLAH, but at the same time, to believe that HE has entrusted some of His power to an angel, a saint, a prophet, or some other creature.  In concluding our discussion, we would summarize the following main points:

one must have firm faith in the doctrine that all that happens is created by the power and will of Allah. Along with this, the need and importance of prophets, saints and angles can not be denied as well. And in any case, whenever a Muslim encounters trouble, he should immediately ask Allah for help and tell him of his absolute conviction to support ALLAH and see him as the only dominant power.
