Conditions for one’s duas being accepted

Q: I would like to know, sometimes our duas are not accepted by Allah, we don’t get solutions for our problems, even after doing lot of dua. Is there any particular method in asking for dua, or is it because of the sins performed in the past knowingly or unknowingly? I know nothing will happen to our wish, but still is there any particular thing to be done, so that our halal duas get accepted?


A: The Hadith teaches us that there are certain conditions for one’s duas being accepted. Among the conditions mentioned are refraining from sin and consuming halaal wealth. The one who leads a life of sin or consumes haraam wealth, his duas will not be answered.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
