Guidance from The Prophet (saws)
Hadrat An-Nu'man bin Bashir (r.a.) reported: The Prophet (saws) said: "Verily, Du'a (supplication) is worship."
Ahadith No. 1465 quoted from Riyad-us-Saliheen Related by Abu Dawood.
What is a supplication but an expression of one's total and utter humbleness, helplessness, weakness, inferiority and lowliness before the Infinite Power and Might of Allah? Thus the Messenger of Allah (saws) described ‘dua’ or supplication as the very essence of worship (ibaadah) itself! The one who recognize their Lord remain constant in remembering and supplicating him; and the unfortunate ones who recognize not their Lord Creator and His Infinite Power and Might, erroneously assume themselves to be self-sufficient. Allah Subhanah loves those who constantly remember and supplicate Him and Him Alone for all their needs or wants.
