Every year Ramadan comes and passes likes other months. It is necessary for us to devise the plan of how to get benefit from this month. It is the month full of blessings and rewards. We should warmly welcome Ramadan. Only fasting and offering Taraweeh prayer is not enough in this month of blessings. We should pray more and more this month for ourselves and for others. So, Ramadan duas every Muslims to read and Ramadan duas to memorize.

However, this month is the best opportunity to create a strong connection with Allah. The most important blessings of this month are that it provides an opportunity to offer Dua. It is certain that our dua is undoubtedly accepted, particularly in the month of Ramadan.  

What is the Significance of Dua?

The significance of Dua is visible by this Hadith,

Prophet Muhammad SAW said,’ There are three persons who requests do not reject, the person who offers Dua when he or she breaks the fast, the leader who likes justice and the request of the oppressed person, Allah open door for Dua of these people to reach him, then, Allah says I will help you surely, it maybe after some time.” (Al-Tirmidhi)

It is essential for the believer to offer to pray with full confidence. Allah will surely grant his request. Dua is the tool of the believer by which we can save us from disasters, the fire of hell, and the troubles of everyday matters. It means that it does not only save us from hardships in the eternal world but in this world also.

In another Hadith, Allah’s messenger said, “ Dua is worship.”

Prophet Muhammad SAW said,” The request (Dua) is the essence of worship.”

It is the sunnah of our Prophet Muhammad SAW and his beloved companions that they continued to prepare themselves before six months of Ramadan.  

Prophet Muhammad SAW said,’ a slave can be closest to his lord when he is in the condition of prostration, So increase prostration and increase Dua in prostration. ‘

It is not necessary to recite long Dua. According to Hazrat Ayesha RA, Prophet Muhammad SAW preferred to recite short Dua.

Dua is directly related to worship. According to Ahadith, not praying is an invitation to the anger of Allah. In the last words, we should not avoid any opportunity for Dua because Allah has given us a chance to mend our relationship with him again and again.
