Ramadhan desserts (part 11)
أبو حنظلة محمد زهري
B) Adab of making doa
Also we can learnt the Adab of making doa from this surah, in which we start with praise and syukr to Him, realizing that the one we are conversing with are the lord of the worlds and knowing His great mercy we will have hope that the doa will be accepted, bearing in mind of the day of judgement always, with proper doa and tawakkul and asking the best of all things first, that is the constant guidance from Him.
These are just some of the pearls which can be extracted from this surah. I hope this will act as an appetizers for all of us to learn and try to understand Quran as He had commanded us to contemplate and reflect on His words:
أَفَلَا يَتَدَبَّرُونَ الْقُرْآنَ وَلَوْ كَانَ مِنْ عِندِ غَيْرِ اللَّهِ لَوَجَدُوا فِيهِ اخْتِلَافًا كَثِيرًا
Do they not then meditate on the Quran? And if it were from any other than Allah, they would have found in it many a discrepancy.
أَفَلَا يَتَدَبَّرُونَ الْقُرْآنَ أَمْ عَلَىٰ قُلُوبٍ أَقْفَالُهَا
Do they not then reflect on the Quran? Nay, on the hearts there are locks.
So let's us all try to understand the meanings of His words and reflect on them everytime we recite them, whether in our solat or outside the solat. And ramadhan is the best time for us to do it. If on this blessed month we are not able to do it, then it will be more difficult for us to do it in the other months. May Allah swt grant me and all of us the strength. Ameen.
