People often misunderstand the power of words, after all it’s only the word by virtue of which Allah SWT created the heavens and the earth as He says Himself in Surah Yaseen verse 82, Verily, His Command, when He intends a thing, is only that He says to it, “Be!” – and it is!
We often complaint that our prayers go unanswered as we do not get what we desire or feel is best for us but in reality Allah Swt hears and knows everything. Our agitation is justified at occasions but everyone is helpless. Prayer is not about repeating yourself heartlessly but submitting to Allah SWT in full faith, accepting the fact that despite all your efforts and hard work it’s only Allah Who can Give you the reward.
So the next time your raise your hands for prayers beg Him whole heartedly with hope and faith that your prayers shall be answered and remember us in your prayers.
