▪️We are in need of offering our daily supplications more than our need for food & drink▪️

Our Shaykh, Muhammad ibn Hizaam -may Allaah preserve him- was asked the following question:

📩 Question:

The questioner says: Can you offer some advice to those who are busied from performing the after prayer invocations as well as the morning and evening supplications?

📝 Answer:

We advise him to focus on doing the supplications, as it is sustenance which gives life to the heart; the morning and evening supplications, as well as the invocations said after the prayer are a sustenance for your heart.

You are in need of these supplications more than your bodies need for food and drink, so do not busy yourself from offering the after prayer supplications, nor the morning and evening invocations. Likewise, when Adhan is called, repeat after the Muadhin.

So we advise you to give concern to these supplications more than your concern for food and drink.

When the heart is given its sustenance, a person remains lively the whole day; if he is regular in his supplications, he will be lively in seeking knowledge and in his worship, and his dealings with people will improve; his dealings with his wife, kids, neighbours and brothers will all improve. Whereas, if he were to fall short in that, his dealings with others will worsen and he will feel tightness in his chest.

So pay great attention to safeguarding the supplications.

And I would like to request from my brothers that they do not disturb me from reciting the morning supplications after the Fajr prayer. If anyone needs anything, they should wait until after sunrise.
