Hadrat Abdullah bin Abu Aufa (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated ALLAH’S Messenger as saying, If any one wants something from ALLAH or from a human being (i.e. irrespective of the need being directly from ALLAH without having any connection with man or apparently relating to a human being), he should perform ablution and do it well, then perform two rak’ahs, then extol ALLAH most high and invoke blessings on the Prophets, then say,

Dua e Hajat

“There is a no God but ALLAH, the Clement and Generous. Glory be to ALLAH, the Lord of the mighty throne. Praise be to ALLAH, the Lord of the Universe. I ask Thee for words which will guarantee Thy mercy, actions whichwill make certain Thy forgiveness, a supply of every virtue and freedom from every offence. Do not leave me a sin which Thou dost not pardon, a care which Thou dost not remove, or a want that meets Thy pleasure which Thou dost not supply, O most merciful of the merciful ones.” [Tirmizi – lbn Majah]

Hadrat Huzaifa (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that when anything distressed the Prophet, he performed Salaah (Nawafil). [Abu Dawud]

  1. Thank you very much for sharing this. It is quite unfortunate that a lot of Muslims especially in Pakistan and India practice bid’ah these days. We promise “nafal”, we promise donations, we promise other things on mazaars and hope that our prayers will be granted. There are a lot of wazaif as well which are bid’ah and have been added by various people who were religiously inclined but for some reason couldn’t realise they were bid’ah. I used to do a lot of wazaif myself from various books and websites, and all my life I suffered from various ailments and painful situations. I left everything (by the grace of Allah who guided me) and just started praying 2 rakaat nafal and then reading dua e hajaat and Alhamdulillah everything became fine. Since then I have been trying to make my friends and family realise as well. JazakAllah for sharing.
