There are certain times Dua is more likely to be accepted by Allah (SWT) as mentioned by Prophet (pbuh). Some of these times are as follows:

1. THE LAST THIRD OF THE NIGHT

The Prophet (pbuh) said: “When it is the last third of the night, our Allah (SWT), the Blessed, the Superior, descends every night to the heaven of the world and says, ‘Is there anyone who invokes Me (demand anything from Me), that I may respond to his invocation; Is there anyone who asks Me for something that I may give (it to) him; Is there anyone who asks My forgiveness that I may forgive him?” (Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 75, Number 333)

2. AN HOUR ON FRIDAY

The Prophet (pbuh) said, “On Friday there is a particular time. If a Muslim happens to be praying and invoking Allah for something good during that time, Allah will surely fulfill his request.” The Prophet (pbuh) pointed out with his hand. We thought that he wanted to illustrate how short that time was. (Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 75, Number 409)

The Prophet (pbuh) said: “Seek the time in which hope is placed on Friday from after the afternoon prayer till sunset.” (Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 1360)

3. THE NIGHT OF ‘QADR’ (DECREE)

This night in Ramadan is the greatest night of the year. The Almighty Allah (SWT) said about it, “The night of Al-Qadar (Decree) is better than a thousand months.” (Qur’aan 97:3)

4. THE DUA OF A MUSLIM FOR HIS MUSLIM BROTHER OR SISTER

The Prophet (pbuh) said “He who supplicates for his brother behind his back (in his absence), the Angel commissioned (for carrying dua to his Lord) says: Ameen, and it is for you also”. (Muslim, Book 035, Number 6589)

5. DUA DURING THE MONTH OF RAMADAN

The Prophet (SAW) said, “When the month of Ramadan comes, the gates of mercy are opened, and gates of Hell are locked and devils are chained”. (Muslim Book 6, No. 2361)
