Saying Please in Du’a

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

What are your thoughts on saying “please” in du’a?

For example: “I ask you by your grace to give me this please”

Does this come under the same ruling as “In Shaa Allah” or can it still come under asking something with confidence/certainty?


Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wabarakatuhu,

Whilst the meaning of Insha Allah is not ‘please’, it will be permissible and in fact recommended to use the word ‘please’ when making Dua in English. Using the word ‘please’ denotes upon more humility and shows a greater amount of begging.


And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
