Why your du’as are not answered.

It was said to Ibrahim b. Adham: What is wrong with us that we supplicate and we receive no answer?

Ibrahim said:

  • It is because you know Allaah and you do not obey Him.
  • You know the Messenger and you do not follow his Sunnah.
  • You know the Qur’an and you do not act according to it.
  • You eat from the blessings of Allaah and you are not thankful for it.
  • You know Paradise and you do not seek it.
  • You know the Hellfire and you do not flee from it.
  • You know Iblees and you do not fight him but rather you agree with him.
  • You know death and you do not prepare for it.
  • You bury the dead and you do not learn from it.
  • You ignore your own faults and you are concerned with the faults of others.
