Hand-Span to Heaven

December 16, 2022

A Friday Reflection shared from our Suhba Online Program with Shaykh Mokhtar Maghraoui.

Jumu‘a Mubaraka!

If I come to Allah a hand-span, He comes to me an arm’s length. If I come to Him walking, He comes to me running.

He is Al-Shakūr.  He appreciates every effort, no matter how small. He is Al-Kāfī. He suffices every need, no matter how great. 

How can I not regularly seek His Infinite treasures through du‘a?  Can I make any less effort than to ask for His help?

Du‘a is my umbilical cord to Allah.  My du‘a list should reach to the heavens — and back.

A saintly scholar said: If you knew the reality of du‘a, it is all you would need to reach Allah.  

Many scholars say that the time between ‘Asr and Maghrib is the special time on the day of Jumu‘a when du‘a are answered. 

Let’s not our forget our recitation of Surat al-Kahf today and our salawat on the Beloved ﷺ.  And let’s end this blessed day with the hand-span of raising our hands to Him.
