Plead to Almighty
05FridayOct 2012Written by Zahraa Al Hassani
Is there anyone who comes to Allah, seeking hospitality, and has not received it? Is there anyone who has dismounted at the door hoping for magnanimity and Allah haven’t shown it? How should we anticipate in other than Allah, when the good-all of it is in His hand? Allah, the hope of every seeker, to Him belongs to the most beautiful names, who showest favor and beneficence, the Originator of the Heavens and the earth, Lord of Majesty and Splendor. He is the Eternal One, who has not begotten, and has not been begotten, and to Whom no one is equal.
This photo by photographer Magda Biskup reminds me of those spiritual supplications. It was taken in Jama Masjid, a beautiful mosque in Old Delhi, India, where every day thousands of Muslims come to pray and spend some time studying Quran. What about you? Have you ever been completely submitted yourself and plead to Almighty sincerely? Do you know, His door is always open to His supplicators? Hope in Allah, Trust in Him, and let’s always be plead to Allah sincerely, be patient and persevere, Good things come to whose wait! Share your thought with me…

Sunan Abu Dawood (Book of Prayer, detailed Injunctions about Witr, Hadith no 1488 and 1490)
Narrated Anas ibn Malik:
I was sitting with the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) and a man was offering prayer. He then made supplication: O Allah, I ask Thee by virtue of the fact that praise is due to Thee, there is no deity but Thou, Who showest favor and beneficence, the Originator of the Heavens and the earth, O Lord of Majesty and Splendor, O Living One, O Eternal One.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) then said: He has supplicated Allah using His Greatest Name, when supplicated by this name, He answers, and when asked by this name He gives. (Sunan Abu Dawood: 1490)
