5 Tips for Making Duaa

1. Have Yaqeen
When one of you makes supplication, he should supplicate with a will and should not say: O Allah, confer upon me if Thou likest, for there is none to coerce Allah. (Muslim)

2. Glorify Allah first
When any one of you have performed Salat and wants to supplicate, let him praise Allah first then glorify Him in the beginning and then he should supplicate Allah for me. Then he may supplicate for whatever he likes.” (Abu Dawud & Tirmidhi)

3. Prostrate to Allah
The nearest a servant comes to his Lord is when he is prostrating himself, so make supplication (in this state). (Muslim)

4. Supplicate at times of ease too
“Whoever wishes that Allah would respond to him during hardship and grief, then let him supplicate plentifully when at ease.” (Timidhi)

5. Remember your brother
“Everytime he makes a supplication for good for his brother, the angel appointed for this particular task says: ‘A meen! May it be for you, too’.” (Muslim)
