❝I know a young man who every Ramaḍān lists the things that he wants to ask Allāh for and he hopes to see realised. Then he prays for them at all those times that prayers are likely to be answered (during fuṭūr, in Qiyām, in sujūd…) He says, “The next Ramaḍān doesn’t come except that Allāh has answered a whole set of my duʿās.”
Over the years much of his hopes and dreams were realised in this way and many of his worries were relieved and Allāh answered a lot of his duʿās.
He says, “In these last few years, I’ve started to take a different approach in duʿāʾ; so I thank Allāh for all that He is given me and realised for me and I continue to pray for the things that I still need.”❞
