How to praise Allah when making Dua

Begin your du’a by worshipping and praising Allah. During prayer, Allah’s Messenger once overheard someone making du”. He did not praise Allah or ask salawaat upon Allah’s Messenger. ‘He was too hasty,’ replied Allah’s Messenger.

He summoned him and told him that when he does dua, he should begin by praising and adoring His Lord, and then invoke salawaat on the Prophet. Then he should make dua for whatever he wants. (Abū Dāwūd)

“There is none who wants to be praised more than Allah,” stated Allah’s Messenger. (Bukhārī)

One of the noblest deeds a slave may undertake is to praise Allah. The noblest words a slave may speak after the Qur’an, according to Allah’s Messenger, are praise and honor. (Aḥmad)

It will be the sole type of worship that the residents of Paradise will engage in, and it will be the means through which they will seek Allah’s help.

Allah says: “Their call therein will be ‘how Perfect You are, O Allah’ and their greeting therein will be ‘peace’ and the end of their call will be ‘Praise be to Allah, the Lord of all the worlds.’” (10:10)

“The people of Paradise… would thank and adore Allah as readily as you breathe,” declared Allah’s Messenger. (Muslim)

Following in the Footsteps of the Prophets

When one considers the Prophets’ dua’s in the Qur’an, one is struck with the civility, shyness, and humility that radiates through their words. Each du’ bears witness to their awareness of and closeness to their Lord. They worshipped Allah, honored Him, and begged via His Most Perfect Names rather than hurrying to make their demands.

This may is seen in the dua’s of Allah’s Messenger.

The faithful will ask numerous Prophets to intervene for them to Allah, according to the hadith of intercession. They will approach the Messenger, who will be given permission to present Himself before Allah if they refuse. He stated:

“When I see my Lord, I shall prostrate myself before Him, and He will let me prostrate for as long as He desires, and then it will be addressed to me, ‘O Muhammad!’ Raise your head and speak, for you will be heard; and beg, because your request will be granted; and intercede, because your intercession will be accepted.’ Then I will lift my head and praise my Lord with particular praises that He has taught me, and then I will intercede on His behalf.

As a result, the Prophet’s specific praise of His Lord will be a method of gaining acceptance for his intercession.

The angels have also demonstrated how to produce du’ via praise to Allah. They began their du” by saying, ‘Our Lord, You have encompassed all things in kindness and knowledge…’ before asking for pardon for ‘those who have repented and followed your way.’ (40:7)

Many of us make du” on a daily basis, yet we do not take use of this opportunity to praise Allah. We have failed to recognize and know Allah as He deserves to be known, thus it does not emerge from our hearts as it should. ‘They did not regard Allah in His proper reverence,’ Allah declares. (39:67) our praises for Allah will come readily and spontaneously once we recognize His vastness, grandeur, and splendor.

How can we express our gratitude to Allah?

We thank Him in the same way that He has praised Himself. This is the most effective technique of praising Allah. This may be learned through reciting the Qur’an, pondering on it, and developing a close link with it, as it is filled with Allah’s praises.

Praise Him in the same way that our beloved Messenger praised Him. None of Allah’s creations came close to knowing and appreciating Him as He should be.

Praise Him in the words of His associates and pious forefathers.

Praise Him using one’s own heartfelt words, as long as they do not contradict good convictions.

The use of Allah’s Beautiful Names is one of the most effective means of worshipping Him.
