Explaining the meanings and forms of acceptance of dua Hakeemul Ummat Hazrat Mawlana Shah Ashraf Ali Thanawi ra said;
“Sheikh Ibn e Arabi ra has written that the meaning of acceptance of dua is that when an individual calls on Allah SWT, immediately he receives a response
I am here (all attentive), O! My slave.
This is the fulfillment of the promise of acceptance stated in this ayah
ادعونی استجب لکم
For a lover this response is an immense reward itself. He is revived by such reply from the Beloved.”
