Importance of Supplication (Dua)

What is Supplication Dua???
Literally the word Supplication (Dua) means “to call upon.”
In Islam Dua or supplication means to address Allah (SWT) with praise, thanksgiving, hope, and to mention one’s needs.
Dua is an important part of our faith and belief. It is a higher form of worship that Allah loves. It is a means of keeping in touch with the Creator, and draws the supplicant closer to the Almighty. It causes increase in bounties and helps remove pain and suffering. There are many ways that people make Dua.
Dua in one’s own words, depending upon need or situation.
It may be based upon verses of Qur’an. Quran has many Duas.
It may be very spontaneous or may be well thought over (Duas make my prophets).
