    Places & Times where Du'a is answered

    Report bad ads?

    There are many times and places where du’a is answered. Below is a brief summary from some authentic sources:
    1. Laylat al-Qadar. It was narrated that ‘Aa’ishah asked the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him):
      If I know what night is Laylat al-Qadar, what should I say during it?” He said: “Say: Allaahumma innaka ‘afuwwan tuhibb ul-‘afwa fa’fu ‘anni (O Allah, You are forgiving and love forgiveness, so forgive me). [ Sunan Ibn Majah 3850, classed as Sahih by Al-Albaani]
    2. Du’a in the depths of the night, the time before dawn, the time when Allah descends to bestow His bounty upon His slaves, to meet their needs and to relieve their distress, when He says:
      Who will call upon Me, that I may answer Him? Who will ask of Me, that I may give him? Who will seek My forgiveness, that I may forgive him? [narrated by al-Bukhari, 1145]
    3. Following the prescribed prayers. According to the hadeeth of Abu Umaamah, it was said:
      O Messenger of Allah, which du’a is heard?” He said: “In the last third of the night, and following the prescribed prayers. [Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 3499; classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Sahih al-Tirmidhi]
      There was some difference of scholarly opinion concerning the phrase dabr al-salawaat al-maktoobah (“following the prescribed prayers”) – does it mean before the salaam or afterwards? Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah and his student Ibn al-Qayyim were of the view that it is before the salaam. Ibn Taymiyah said:
      The word dabr refers to something that is part of a thing, like dabr al-haywaan (the hindquarters of an animal). [Zaad al-Ma’aad, 1.305]
      Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said:
      What has been narrated of du’a following the prayer is before the salaam and what has been narrated of dhikr following the prayer is after the salaam, because Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): “When you have finished As-Salaah (the congregational prayer), remember Allaah standing, sitting down, and (lying down) on your sides” [al-Nisa’ 4:103]
    4. Between the adhaan and the iqaamah. It is narrated in a sahih report that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
      A du’a offered between the adhaan and iqaamah is not rejected. [Narrated by Abu Dawood (521) and al-Tirmidhi (212). See also Saheeh al-Jaami’, 2408.]
    5. When the call for the prescribed prayers is given and when the ranks are drawn up for battle, as it says in the marfoo’ hadeeth of Sahl ibn Sa’d:
      There are two that will not be rejected, or will rarely be rejected: du’a at the time of the call for prayer and at the time of battle when the fighting begins. [Narrated by Abu Dawood; it is a sahih report. See Sahih al-Jaami’, 3079.]
    6. When rain falls, as it said in the hadeeth of Sahl ibn Sa’d that is attributed to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him):
      There are two which will not be rejected: du’a at the time of the call (to prayer) and when it is raining. [Narrated by Abu Dawood and classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’ (3078)].
    7. At a certain time of the night, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
      During the night there is a time when the Muslim does not ask for the good of this world and the Hereafter but it will be given to him, and that happens every night.[Narrated by Muslim, 757.]
    8. A certain time on Friday. The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) mentioned Friday and said:
      During it there is a time when a Muslim slave does not stand and pray and ask Allah for something, but He will give it to him, and he gestured with his hand to indicate how short that time is. [Narrated by al-Bukhari, 935; Muslim, 852.]
    9. When drinking Zamzam water. It was narrated from Jaabir (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
      Zamzam water is for that for which it is drunk. [ Narrated by Ahmad and classed as sahih by al-Albaani in Sahih al-Jaami’, 5502.]
    10. When prostrating. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
      The closest that a person is to his Lord is when he is prostrating, so say a great deal of du’a then. [ Narrated by Muslim, 482]
    11. When hearing the crowing of a rooster, because of the hadeeth:
      When you hear the crowing of a rooster, ask Allah of His bounty, for he has seen an angel.[ Narrated by al-Bukhari, 2304; Muslim, 2729]
    12. When saying the du’a, “Laa ilaaha illa anta, subhaanaka, inni kuntu min al-zaalimeen ([none has the right to be worshipped but You (O Allah)], Glorified (and Exalted) be You [above all that (evil) they associate with You]! Truly, I have been of the wrongdoers – cf al-Anbiya’ 21:87]).” It was narrated in a sahih hadeeth that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
      The prayer of Dhu’l-Noon (Yoonus) which he said when he was in the belly of the whale: ‘Laa ilaaha illa anta, subhaanaka, inni kuntu min al-zaalimeen ([none has the right to be worshipped but You (O Allaah)], Glorified (and Exalted) be You [above all that (evil) they associate with You]! Truly, I have been of the wrongdoers.’ No Muslim recites this du’a concerning any matter but Allah will answer him.[ Narrated by al-Tirmidhi and classed as sahih in Sahih al-Jaami’, 3383]
      In his commentary on the passage (interpretation of the meaning):
      21:87 And (remember) Dhun‑Noon (Jonah), when he went off in anger, and imagined that We shall not punish him (i.e. the calamities which had befallen him)! But he cried through the darkness (saying): Laa ilaaha illa Anta [none has the right to be worshipped but You (O Allaah)], Glorified (and Exalted) be You [above all that (evil) they associate with You]! Truly, I have been of the wrongdoers. 21:88. So We answered his call, and delivered him from the distress. And thus We do deliver the believers (who believe in the Oneness of Allaah, abstain from evil and work righteousness). [al-Anbiya’ 21:87-88]
      Al-Qurtubi said:
      In this verse, Allah stipulates that whoever calls upon Him, He will answer him as He answered and saved Dhu’l-Noon (Yoonus). This is what is meant by the words “And thus We do deliver the believers”. [Al-Jaami’ li Ahkaam il-Qur’aan, 11/334]
    13. The prayer of the one who has been wronged. In the hadeeth it says:
      Fear the prayer of the one who has been wronged, for there is no barrier between it and Allah. [Narrated by al-Bukhari, 469; Muslim, 19]
      And the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
      The prayer of the one who has been wronged will be answered, even if he is an evildoer, for his evildoing is only against himself.[Narrated by Ahmad. See Sahih al-Jaami’, 3382]
    14. Du’a for one who is sick.
      Muslim narrated that Umm Salamah said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “When you visit a sick person, say good things, for the angels say Ameen to whatever you say…” When Abu Salamah died, I came to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and said: “Abu Salamah has died.” He said: “Say: O Allah, forgive me and him, and compensate me well.” She said: I said: And Allah compensated me with one who was better for me than him: Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). [Narrated by Muslim, 919]
    15. The prayer of people after the soul of the deceased has been taken. According to the hadeeth, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) entered upon Abu Salamah (after he had died) and his eyes were open. He closed them and said:
      When the soul is taken, the gaze follows it. Some of his family got upset and he said: Do not pray for anything but good for yourselves, for the angels say Ameen to whatever you say.[Narrated by Muslim. 2732]
    16. If a calamity befalls him and he says, Inna Lillaahi wa inna ilayhi raaji’oon, Allaahumma ujurni fi museebati w'ukhluf li khayran minha (Truly, to Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return; O Allah, reward me in this calamity and compensate me with something better than it). It was narrated by Muslim in his Sahih (918) that Umm Salamah said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) say:
      There is no calamity that befalls one of the Muslims and he responds by saying ‘Innaa Lillaahi wa innaa ilahi raaji'oon, Allaahumma ujurni fi museebati w'ukhluf li khayran minha (Truly, to Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return; O Allah, reward me in this calamity and compensate me with something better than it),’ but Allah will compensate him with something better than it. [Narrated by Muslim, 918]
    17. Du’a when getting up from the night (sleep), and saying the du’a that was narrated for that time. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
      Whoever awakens from the night and says Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wahdahu la shareeka lah, lahu al-mulku wa lahu al-hamd, wa huwa 'ala kulli shay-in qadeer. Alhamdulillah, wa Subhanallah, wa la ilaha illa Allah wallahu akbar wa laa hawla wa laa quwwata illa Billaah (There is no god but Allaah Alone, He has no partners, His is the Sovereignty, to Him belongs praise and He is over all things Capable. Glory be to Allah, there is no (true) God but Allah, and Allaah is Most Great and there is no power and no strength except with Allaah), then he says: Allaahumma ighfir li (O Allaah, forgive me), or he makes du’aa’, his prayer will be answered, and if he does wudu and prays, his prayer will be accepted. [ Narrated by al-Bukhari, 1154]
    18. Du’aa’ after the sun has passed its zenith and before Zuhr.
      It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allah ibn al-Saa’ib (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to pray four rak'ahs after the sun had passed its zenith and before Zuhr, and he said: This is a time when the gates of heaven are opened and I want a good deed of mine to ascend during this time. [Narrated by al-Tirmidhi and its isnaad is saheeh. See Takhreej al-Mishkaat, 1/337]
    19. The du’a of a righteous person for his parents, as stated in the hadeeth narrated by Muslim:
      When the son of Adam dies, all his good deeds come to an end except three: ongoing charity, a righteous son who will pray for him, or beneficial knowledge.[ Narrated by Muslim, 1631]
    20. The prayer of a father against his child – i.e., to harm him. According to a sahih hadeeth:
      There are three prayers that will be answered: the prayer of one who has been wronged, the prayer of a traveler, and the prayer of a father against his child.[ Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 1905. See Saheeh al-Adab al-Mufrad, 372]
    21. The du’a of a father for his child – i.e., for his benefit – and the du’a of a fasting person during the day of his fast, and the prayer of the traveler. It was narrated in a sahih report that our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:
      There are three prayers that are not rejected: the prayer of a father for his child, the prayer of the fasting person and the prayer of the traveler.[ Narrated by al-Bayhaqi; see Sahih al-Jaami’, 2032; al-Saheehah, 1797]

    Salam
    Brother, arent number 2 and number 7 the same?
    Also about crowing of the rooster i watched Assim Al hakeem's video and he sd the crowing of the rooster at the time of fajr.
    Regarding number 8, Assim Al Hakeem limited the time btwen asar and mghrib. Like on the evening of friday and night of Saturday.

    Last, the hadith about a father making baddua no. 22 has got me bad.. I have mentioned in the group several times that i hail from a broken family, and my father is not mentally stable resulting in him constantly abusing me verbally and physically.. He once made baddua to me and i feel like it did affext me
    I asked assim al hakeem through his website he sd it is bogus, badduas of parents is ineffective esp one made in anger.

    Wa-Alaikum Assalam Wa-Rahmatullahi Wa-Barakatuhu Sister,

    It depends and there are difference of opinions regarding these. If you read the hadiths, you can see that one is specifically referring to last one third of the night & second one is much broader as it mentions any part of the night. It could be mid night, it could be few hours after Isha and it could be last one third of the night. I guess it depends when one prays Tahajjud or Qiyyam al lail or both. Some scholars consider Qiyyam al lail and Tahajjud as the same prayer, other considered them as two separate prayers. Hence the difference of opinion.

    I answered this in another thread and gave reference to hadiths, no time in mentioned in those hadiths, link to the thread is below:
    Crowing of the Rooster
    Now we hear rooster crowing several times a day, does that mean we should keep making dua everytime we hear him? We may also have a dog in neighborhood, should we seek refuge from Shaytan every time we hear the dog barking? No, it will be going to extremes. Therefore, scholars say that make the dua when you hear the rooster crowing the first time and that should suffice ( Perhaps that's why Sheikh Asim Alhakim mentioned to make dua at Fajr when you hear the rooster). And perhaps one can hear the Rooster crowing an hour before Fajr (Tahajjud time).
    We also know that the angels change shifts during asr and Fajr time. And roosters normally crow a lot during these times. That is the reason we have recommended adhkar of the morning and evening time & these are the times righteous people like to remember Allah and make lot of du'as.

    There are several opinions on this regard. Some say, it is the time between two khutbas. Some say it is between 'Asr & Maghreb. I agree with what Sheikh Asim said.

    I am sorry to hear that sister. Don't worry about this because inorder to understand this hadith, one should understand that Allah is Just. The curse of parents is accepted without a doubt if it is just, if it is unjust then it is not accepted. Hadith below may help to understand this better:

    Abud-Darda' (May Allah be pleased with him) said:
    The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "When a person curses somebody or something, the curse goes up to heaven and the gates of heaven get closed. Then it comes down to the earth and its gates get closed. Then it turns right and left, and if it does not find an entrance to go anywhere, it returns to the person or thing that was cursed; if he or it deserves to be cursed; otherwise it returns to the person who uttered it."

    [Abu Dawud].
    وعن أبي الدرداء رضي الله عنه قال‏:‏ قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏:‏ ‏ "‏إن العبد إذا لعن شيئًا، صعدت اللعنة إلى السماء، فتغلق أبواب السماء دونها، ثم تهبط إلى الأرض، فتغلق أبوابها دونها، ثم تأخذ يمينًا وشمالا، فإذا لم تجد مساغًا رجعت إلى الذي لُعن، فإن كان أهلا لذلك، وإلا رجعت إلى قائلها‏"‏‏.‏ رواه أبو داود.
    Reference: Riyad as-Salihin 1556
    In-book reference: Book 17, Hadith 46
    https://sunnah.com/riyadussalihin/17/46

    And Allah knows the best!
    May Allah accept your du'as, heal you from the suffering you have gone through and bless you with what is beneficial in both worlds. Ameen!
    Ma'aSalaam

    Re: Places & Times where Du'a is answered

    I dont think it would be going to extremes. If a rooster crows 7 to 8 times a day, it can be taken as a reminder to remember Allah. So if we are busy doing something and we hear th rooster, we can take a few minutes to remember Alllah and ask Him for anything..
    No?
