Dua with 99 Names of Allah Series – A Ramadan Dua Diary
In one of the Workshop I attended on Asma ul Husna, our teacher told us that we do not know how to make a Proper Dua. She said that it is not enough for the lip to make the dua ,the dua needs to come out of Sincere heart. I was shocked but it was true. I wish to share my Dua Diary which aims at seeking Allah’s mercy through his divine names. It is true that if we understand the sifat of the names of Allah we realise how supreme Allah is and how much humility should we have in our Prayer. My Intention of writing this post is to glorify Allah via his names and to make the readers of this post ponder on the meaning of names of Allah and share the art of making Dua with Allah’s name .
