Shaikh Mawlana Qamar uz Zaman Allahabadi (Allah preserve him) said,
‘Special supplications (dua) should be made for the development of true desire (talub).
In particular the (following) supplication prescribed by the Naqshbandi saints. Allah will surely develop true yearning.
You are my goal and I seek Your pleasure!
(Therefore) Bless me with Your love and marifa.’
