Best Times to make Dua (Supplication)


There are certain times dua (supplication)
is more likely to be accepted by Allah (SWT)
as mentioned by Prophet (SAW). These
times are as follows:

1. The Last Third Of The Night
Abu Hurairah (RA) narrated that Allah’s
Messenger (SAW) said: 'In the last third
of every night our Rabb (Cherisher and
Sustainer) (Allah (SWT)) descends to the
lowermost heaven and says; "Who is
calling Me, so that I may answer him?
Who is asking Me so that may I grant
him? Who is seeking forgiveness from
Me so that I may forgive him?."'
[Sahih al-Bukhari, Hadith Qudsi]

Amr ibn Absah narrated that the
Prophet said: 'The closest any
worshipper can be to His Lord is
during the last part of the night,
so if you can be amongst those
who remember Allah at that time,
then do so.'[at-Tirmidhi, an-Nasa'i,
al-Hakim - Sahih]

2. Late at night
When people are sleeping and busy
with worldly pleasures Allah (SWT)
gives the believers an opportunity,
or an answer hour if they can fight
sleep and invoke Allah (SWT) for
whatever they need. The Prophet
(SAW) said: 'There is at night an
hour, no Muslim happens to be
asking Allah any matter of this world
or the Hereafter, except that he will
be given it, and this (occurs) every night.'
[Muslim #757]

3. Between Adhan and Iqamah
Anas (RA) narrated that Allah’s
Messenger (SAW) said: 'A supplication
made between the Adhan and Iqama
is not rejected.'
[Ahmad, abu Dawud #521, at-Tirmidhi
#212, Sahih al-Jami #3408, an-Nasai
and Ibn Hibban graded it sahih (sound)]

4. An Hour On Friday
Narrated Abu Hurairah (RA): Allah’s
Messenger (SAW) talked about Friday
and said: 'There is an hour on Friday
and if a Muslim gets it while offering Salat
(prayer) and asks something from
Allah (SWT), then Allah (SWT) will definitely
meet his demand.' And he (the Prophet (SAW)
pointed out the shortness of that
particular time with his hands.
[Sahih al-Bukhari]

Some have said that this hour is from
the time the Imam (prayer’s leader)
enters the mosque on Friday’s prayer
until the prayer is over (ie between the
two khutbahs), whereas others have
said that it is the last hour of the day
(ie after the Asr prayer until the
Maghrib prayer).

5. While Drinking Zamzam Water
Jaber (RA) narrated that Allah’s
Messenger (SAW) said: 'Zamzam
water is for what it is drunk for.'
[Ahmad 3: 357 and Ibn Majah #3062].
This means that when you drink Zamzam
water you may ask Allah (SWT) for anything
you like to gain or benefit from this water
such as healing from illness.... etc.

6. While Prostrating
Abu Hurairah (RA) narrated that
Allah’s Messenger (SAW), said:
'The nearest a slave can be to his Lord
is when he is prostrating, so invoke
(supplicate) Allah (SWT) much in it.
[Muslim, abu Dawud, an-Nasa'i and others,
Sahih al-Jami #1175]

When a Muslim is in his Salat (prayer)
he is facing Allah (SWT) and when
he prostrates he is the nearest
he can be to Allah (SWT) so it is
best to invoke Allah (SWT) at this time.
It is said that while in prostration,
one should not ask for worldy needs
(ie a nice car, a new job, etc),
but for the Hereafter.

7. When Waking Up at Night
Narrated Ubada Bin As-Samit that
Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said:
'Whomever wakes up at night and
says La ilaha illallahu wahdahu la
shrika lahu lahulmulku, wa lahul hamdu,
wa huwa ala kulli shai'in qadir.
Alhamdu lillahi, wa subhanallahi
wa la ilaha illallahu, wallah akbir,
wa la hawla wala quwata illa billah
(none has the right to be worshipped
but Allah (SWT) He is the only one who
has no partners. His is the kingdom and
all the praises are for Allah (SWT)
All the glories are for Allah (SWT)
And none has the right to be worshipped
but Allah (SWT) and Allah (SWT)
is the most Great and there is neither
might nor power except with Allah (SWT)
and then says, Allahumma ighfir li
(O Allah! Forgive me) or invokes Allah
(SWT), he will be responded to and
if he makes ablution and performs
Salat (prayer), his Salat (prayer) will
be accepted. [Sahih al-Bukhari]

8. At The End Of The Obligatory Salat:
Narrated Abu Omamah (RA): that
Allah’s Messenger (SAW) was asked,
O Messenger of Allah, which supplication
is heard (by Allah (SWT), he said the end
of the night and at the end of the obligatory
Salat (prayer) [at-Tirmidhi].
This time is after saying 'At-tahyat' ,
and before making Tasleem (finishing prayer)

9. The Night Of 'Qadr' (Decree)
This night is the greatest night of the year.
This is the night which the almighty
Allah (SWT) said about it,
"The night of Al-Qadar (Decree) is better
than a thousand months." [Surah al-Qadr, 97: 3]

The Night of Decree is one of the odd
nights of the last ten nights of the blessed
month of Ramadan. The angels descend
down to the earth, and the earth is
overwhelmed with peace and serenity
until the break of dawn and when he
doors of Paradise are opened, the
worshipper is encouraged to turn to Allah
to ask for his needs for this world
and the Hereafter.

10. During The Rain
Narrated Sahel Ibn Sa'ad (RA):
that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said:
'Two will not be rejected,
Supplication when the Adhan
(call of prayer) is being called,
and at the time of the rain'.
[Al-Hakim 2: 114, and Abu Dawud
#2540, ibn Majah]

'Seek the response to your du'as
when the armies meet, and the prayer
is called, and when rain falls'
[reported by Imam al-Shafi' in al-Umm,
al-Sahihah #1469]. The time of the
rain is a time of mercy from Allah (SWT)
so, one should take advantage of
this time when Allah (SWT) is having
mercy on His slaves.

11. At the Adhan
'Seek the response to your du'as
when the armies meet, and the prayer
is called, and when rain falls'
[reported by Imam al-Shafi' in al-Umm,
al-Sahihah #1469]

In another hadith; 'When the prayer is
called, the doors of the skies are opened,
and the du'a is answered'
[al-Tayalisi in his Musnad #2106,
al-Sahihah #1413]

12. The One Who Is Suffering
Injustice and Opression
The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said
to Mua'ad Ibn Jabal (RA),
'Beware of the supplication of the
unjustly treated, because there is
no shelter or veil between it
(the supplication of the one who is
suffering injustice) and Allah (SWT)'
[Sahih Al-Bukhari and Muslim]


'The prophet (SAW) declared,
'Three men whose dua is
rejected (by Allah) are: the fasting
person until he breaks his fast
(in another narration,
when he breaks fast), the just ruler
and the one who is oppressed.
'[Ahmad, at-Tirmidhi - Hasan]'

It should be NOT rejected by Allah


The prophet (SAW) declared,
'Three men whose dua is
rejected (by Allah) are: the fasting
person until he breaks his fast
(in another narration,
when he breaks fast), the just ruler
and the one who is oppressed.
'[Ahmad, at-Tirmidhi - Hasan]

In another hadith; The Prophet (SAW)
declared: 'Three du'as are surely answered:
The du'a of the oppressed, the du'a
of the traveler, and the du'a of the
father/mother (upon their child)'.
The One who is suffering injustice
is heard by Allah (SWT) when he
invokes Allah (SWT) to retain his
rights from the unjust one or oppressor.
Allah (SWT) has sworn to help the one
who is suffering from injustice sooner
or later as the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said.

13. The Traveler
The Messenger of Allah
(SAW) said; Three supplications
will not be rejected (by Allah (SWT)),
the supplication of the parent for his child,
the supplication of the one who is fasting,
and the supplication of the traveler.
[al-Bayhaqi, at-Tirmidhi - Sahih]

During travel supplication is heard by
Allah (SWT) if the trip is for a good reason,
but if the trip is for a bad intention
or to perform illegal things (making sins)
this will not apply to it.

14. The Parent's Supplication for their Child
The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said;
Three supplications will not be rejected
(by Allah (SWT)), the supplication
of the parent for his child, the supplication
of the one who is fasting, and the
supplication of the traveler.
[al-Bayhaqi, at-Tirmidhi - Sahih]

15. Dua after praising Allah and
giving salat on the Prophet (SAW) in the
tashahhud at the end of salat.
Narrated Faddalah ibn Ubayd (RA):
that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said:
'When anyone of you makes du'a,
let him start by glorifying his Lord
and praising Him, then let him send
blessings upon the Prophet (SAW),
then let him pray for whatever he wants'
[abu Dawud #1481, at-Tirmidhi #3477]

In another hadith; Baqiy ibn Mukhallid
(RA) narrated that that the Messenger
of Allah (SAW) said: 'Every du'a is not
responded to until one sends
upon the Prophet (SAW)' [al-Bayhaqi]

In another hadith; Umar (RA) narrated
that the Prophet (SAW) said: 'Du'a is
detained between the heavens and
the earth and no part of it is taken up
until you send blessings upon
Prophet (SAW)' [at-Tirmidhi #486]

After a person has finished his tashahhud
and before saying the 'salam',
at this time is one likely to be responded to.
Ibn Mas'ud narrates: I was once praying,
and the Prophet (SAW), Abu Bakr and
(were all present). When I sat down
(in the final tashahhud), I praised Allah,
then sent salams on the Prophet,
then started praying for myself.
At this, the Prophet (SAW) said:
'Ask, and you shall be given it! Ask,
and you shall be given it!'
[at-Tirmidhi #593 - hasan,
Mishkat al-Misbah #931]

16. The dua of a Muslim for his absent
brother or sister Muslim stemming from the heart.
The prophet (SAW) said:
'There is no believing servant who
supplicates for his brother in his
absence where the angels do not say,
'the same be for you'' [Muslim]

17. Dua on the Day of Arafat
The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said:
'The best supplication is the supplication
on the day of Arafat'. [at-Tirmidhi and Malik]

The day of Arafat is the essence
and pinnacle of Hajj. On this great
and momentous day, millions of worshippers
gather together on one plain, from every
corner of the world, with only one purpose
in mind - to respone to the call of their Creator.
During this auspicious day, Allah does
not refuse the requests of His worshippers.

18. Dua during the month of Ramadan

Ramadan is month full of many blessings,
thus the du'a of Ramadan is a blessed one.
This can be inferred from the
Prophet (SAW) saying: 'When Ramadan comes,
the Doors of Mercy
(another narration says Paradise) are opened,
and the doors of Hell are closed,
and the Shaitans are locked up'
Thus, it is clear that du'a during Ramadan
has a greater chance of being accepted,
as the Gates of Paradise and Mercy are opened.
[Sahih al-Bukhari #1899, Muslim #1079 and others]

19. Dua when the Armies meet
When the Muslim is facing the enemy
in battle, at this critical period,
the du'a of a worshipper is accepted.

Sahl ibn Sa'd (RA) narrtaed the the
Prophet (SAW) said: 'Two duas are never rejected,
or rarely rejected: the du'a during the
call for prayer, and the du'a during the
clamity when the two armies attack each other'
[Abu Dawud #2540, ibn Majah, al-Hakim]

20. When Muslims gather for the
purpose of invoking and remembering
Allah (Dhikrullah).

The Prophet (SAW) said: If a group
of people sit together remembering Allah,
the angels will circle them, mercy
will shroud them, peace will descend
onto them and Allah will remember
them among those with Him. [Muslim]

21. First Ten days of Dhul-Hijjah
The Prophet (SAW) said:
'There are no days during which good
deeds are more beloved to Allah
than during these ten days'
[Sahih al-Bukhai #969 and others]

22. Dua when the heart reaches
out to Allah and is ready to be totally sincere

23. At Midnight

Abu Umamah (RA) said,
the Prophet (SAW) was questioned;
'Which du'a is heard (by Allah)?'
He answered, 'At midnight and at the
end of every obligatory prayer.
' [at-Tirmidhi - Hasan]

25. Dua of people after the death of a person

In a long hadith, Umm Salamah (RA)
narrated that the Prophet (SAW) said,
when Abu Salamah had just passed away,
and had closed his eyes, 'Do not ask
for yourselves anything but good,
for the angels will say 'Ameen' to all
that you ask for. O Allah, forgive Abu Salamah,
and raise his ranks among those
who are guided.'
[Muslim, abu Dawud, Ahmad]

26. Dua of the one fasting until
he breaks his fast.

The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said;
Three supplications will not be
rejected (by Allah (SWT)), the supplication
of the parent for his child, the
supplication of the one who is fasting,
and the supplication of the traveler.
[al-Bayhaqi, at-Tirmidhi - Sahih]

27. Dua of the one fasting at the
time of breaking fast

The prophet (SAW) declared,
'Three men whose dua is never rejected
(by Allah) are: when a fasting person
breaks fast (in another narration,
the fasting person until he breaks his fast),
the just ruler and the one
who is oppressed.
'[Ahmad, at-Tirmidhi - Hasan]

29. Dua of a justice Ruler

The prophet (SAW) declared,
'Three men whose dua is never rejected
(by Allah) are: the fasting person
until he breaks his fast
(in another narration,
when he breaks fast),
the just ruler and the one
who is oppressed.
'[Ahmad, at-Tirmidhi - Hasan]

30. Dua of a son or daughter
obedient to his or her parents

It is well known in the story
narrated in hadith os three men
who were trapped by a huge stone in a cave.
One of them who was kind to his parents
asked Allah to remove the stone,
and his du'a was answered.
[Sahih al-Bukhari 3:36 #472]

31. Dua immediately after wudu

Umar ibn Al-Khattab reported
that the Prophet (SAW) said:
'There is not one of you that makes wudu,
and does it perfectly, then says:
I testify that there is no diety worthy
of worship except Allah. he is Alone,
having no partners.
And I bear witness that Muhammad is His
slave and messenger',
except that the eight gates of Paradise
are opened for him, and he can enter
into it through whichever one he pleases'
[Muslim #234, abu Dawud #162,
Ahmad, an-Nasa'i] Saying
what has been mentioned in the hadith
that is directly related to it (ablution)

32. Dua after stoning the Jamarat at Hajj

The stoning of the small Shaitan
(jamrat sugra), or the middle Shaitan
(jamrat wusta) pillars during Hajj.
It is narrated that the Prophet (SAW)
would stone the small Jamarah
(one of the three pillars that is
stoned in the last days of Hajj),
then face the qiblah, raise his hands,
and make du'a for a long time.
He would then stone the middle
Jamarah and do the same.
When he stoned the large Jamarah,
he would depart without making any
du'a. [Sahih al-Bukhari
#1753 and others]

33. At the Crowing of a Rooster

Abu Hurairah (RA) narrated
that the Prophet (SAW) said:
'When you hear a rooster crowing,
then ask Allah for His bounties,
for it has seen an angel, and
when you hear a donkey braying,
then seek refuge in Allah from Shaitan,
for it has seen a Shaitan'
[Sahih al-Bukhari, Muslim,
Ahmad, Sahih al-Jami #611]

34. Du'a made inside the Ka'bah
The Ka'bah is a sanctuary that has
no comparison in the entire world.
The du'a of one who prays inside
the hijr is considered as being made
inside the ka'bah, as it is part
of the house (Baitullah).
[This is the semicircle to the right
of the Ka'bah if you face the door,
opposite to the Yemeni corner
and the Black stone wall.]

Usamah ibn Zayd narrated,
'When the Prophet (SAW) entered
the House (Ka'bah), he made du'a in
all of its corners
[Muslim 2: 968 and others]

The Prophet (SAW) said that
Allah the Exalted had said:
'I have divided the prayer into
two halves between Me and My servant,
and My servant will receive
what he asks for. When the servant says:
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the universe,
Allah the Most High says:
My servant has praised Me.
And when he (the servant) says:
The Most Compassionate, the Merciful,
Allah the Most High says:
My servant has lauded Me. When he
(the servant) says: Master of the Day
of Judgment, He remarks:
My servant has glorified Me,
and sometimes He will say:
My servant entrusted (his affairs) to Me.
When he (the worshipper) says:
Thee do we worship and of
Thee do we ask help, He (Allah) says:
This is between Me and My servant,
and My servant will receive what he asks for
. Then, when he (the worshipper) says:
Guide us to the straight path,
the path of those to whom
Thou hast been Gracious --
not of those who have incurred
Thy displeasure, nor of those who have
gone astray, He (Allah) says:
This is for My servant, and
My servant will receive what he asks for.
[Muslim 4: 395]

38. Saying 'Ameen' during prayer

After finishing the recitation of al-Fatihah,
the saying of'Ameen' in congregation.
The Prophet (SAW) said:
'When the Imam says 'Ameen',

because whoever's Ameen coincides
with the Ameen of the angels
will have all of his sins forgiven.'
[Sahih al-Bukhari #780,

Muslim #410 and others]

39. While visiting the sick,
and dua made by the sick

Umm Salamah narrated that
the Prophet (SAW) said: 'When you
visit the sick, or the dead then say good,
because the angels say 'Ameen'
to whatever you say [Muslim #2126]

Ali (RA) reported that the Prophet (SAW)
said: 'When a Muslim visits his sick
Muslim brother in the morning,
seventy thousand angels make dua
for his forgiveness till the evening.
And when he visits him in the evening,
seventy thousand angels make dua for
his forgiveness till the morning, and
he will be granted a garden for it in Jannah.'

[at-Tirmidhi, abu Dawud]
