Supplication is: One‟s admission of his weakness to his creator by turning towards Allah and praying. Allah Almighty commands: (O my Prophet) Say that: “My Lord would not concern Himself with you but for your call on Him” (26)
Calling on Allah a lot is a sign of closeness to Him. Indeed, prophets are people who have prayed to Allah the most during their lives.
Supplication is the weapon, the sword and the door of salvation for the believer; the believer must make supplication with his heart, tongue and good deeds. Allah almighty commands: “Call on Me; I will answer your (prayer).”(27)
Supplications are answered. Allah almighty commands that; “When My servants ask thee concerning Me, I am indeed close (to them): I respond to the prayer of every suppliant when he calleth on Me: Let them also, with a will, Listen to My call, and believe in Me: That they may walk in the right way.” (28)
Friends of Haq supplicate a lot. This supplication joins the supplications of the saints and Abdulqadir Jilani and ascents to Allah. The prayers of saints are widely acceptable. This is a good example for this:
Hazrat Maruf-u Kerhi has made good prayer to hazrat Sirr-i Sakati when he did a favour to an orphan. One day a fire breaks out in the high street in which hazrat Sirr-i Sakati had his shop. All the shops in the street burns, apart from the shop of hazrat Sirr-i Sakati. The shop of hazrat Sirr-i Sakati had not burned because of the prayer of hazrat Maruf-u Kerhi.
Supplicating to Allah is a duty for servants. Our duty is to pray to Allah; regardless of whether our prayers are accepted now, or delayed to a later date, or not accepted for the reason of not being to our best interest.
Allah does not like the tongue which does not supplicate to Him. No matter how sinner a person is, if he supplicates to Allah, Allah Most Glorified loves him and leads him to the right path.
Allah Almighty commands that: “And those who strive in Our (cause),- We will certainly guide them to Our Paths: For verily Allah is with those who do right.”(29)
