Ramadan is known as the most blessed month where our supplications tend to be accepted by Allah SWT. As a Muslim, we are to believe that our supplications is the best antidote to our fears, worries, adversities and challenges. Prophet Muhammad SAW has said, “The supplication is the essence of worship.”(Al Tardmizi). If you believe in worshipping Allah SWT to gain his blessings, then you would take the opportunity to increase your supplications to be heard in this blessed month of Ramadan.
In essence, our supplications do not have to be long as long as it encapsulates your intentions and hopes in a specific manner. It was reported by that Saidatina Aishah that the Prophet preferred supplications that are few in words and comprehensive in meaning. (Abu Dawood). In addition, Prophet Muhammad SAW has said : “There are three whose supplication is not rejected: The fasting person when he breaks his fast, the just leader, and the supplication of the oppressed person; Allah raises it up above the clouds and opens the gates of heaven to it. And the Lord says: ‘By My might, I shall surely aid you, even if it should be after a while.’” [Jami` at-Tirmidhi]
