Muraqaba e duaiya

Hadhrat Haji Ahmad Nakuda of blessed Medinah, a senior khalifa of Shaykh al-Hadith Mawlana Zakariya Kandehlawi (may Allah have mercy on him) told that he was very much concerned when he read the hadith that towards the end of the world a person will be a Muslim in morning and an infidel in the evening and vice versa. He approached his Shaykh and asked him how can he safe guard himself from such a big calamity.

Hadhrat Shaykh al-Hadith(may Allah have mercy on him) replied,

‘By being consistent on your daily dhikr and muraqaba e duaiya (contemplative supplication).’

Hadhrat Haji sahib explained that muraqaba e duaiya is to make supplications (dua) by your heart without moving the tongue. The prayers are for the Umma’s betterment. It should be done for atleast 10 minutes daily.

May Allah give us the tawfeeq!
