Hadith Explanation

Stir the Sugar

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Offer prayer (Dua) with firm conviction in Allah’s favour. Allah does not accept a prayer sent forth by an inattentive heart.” [Tirmidhi]

Ask Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) with concentration and conviction in His favour. Instead of looking at your insignificance and the enormity of your sins, look towards the unlimited kindness and countless blessings of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala). The prayer of a person whose thoughts aren’t focused on Allah and who is only mumbling half-heartedly, on a whim, without anticipating the favour of Allah, is in vain.

It is as though you put sugar in your cup of tea, but not really believing in its sweetness you didn’t stir it. Till you stir it, it won’t sweeten your tea. So also, conviction in Allah’s powers and favours is what must permeate you, in order for your asking Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) to be effective.
