It is possible that due to the things in our hearts or due to the actions of our limbs that Allah rejects our du’a. So it is imperative for us as Muslims to know the means for our du’as to be accepted, for indeed du’a has a high status in Islam.
Ustaadh Rayaan mentions various narrations by the Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu ‘alahi wa salam) regarding the types of people whose du’a is accepted. He also discusses the explanations of the scholars related to these narrations and the things that create barriers to our du’as being accepted.
Do not hasten to expect your du’as to be answered, for indeed Allah is near and responds to the du’a of the supplicant.
