Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said:
“Whoever does not ask from Allah, He (Allah) becomes angry at him.”
(An authentic Hadeeth reported by Ibn Majah, At-Tirmidhi, Al-Haakim and others)
From the above Hadeeth we can clearly understand the importance of Dua (the word Dua means “to call upon.”) in our life. In Islam Dua or supplication means to address Allah (SWT) with praise, thanksgiving, hope, and to mention one’s needs. In English it is also referred to as “Prayer.”
With the recent floods in Pakistan it’s necessary for all the Muslims to ask forgiveness from Allah (SWT). As mentioned in the Holy Quran:
“And whatever misfortune befalls you, (comes upon you) as a result of that (evil work) which your own hands have done while HE forgives most of your (misdoings)”
(Quran 42: 30)
For this media can play a vital role in creating awareness among common people. I personally love Olpers for what they are doing.
Olpers YouTube channel also contains some inspiring videos which motivate us to pray for our country, for the people of our country. According to me rather than portraying how much hopeless we are; just like Olpers other companies should step forward and launch campaigns for delivering the message to the Muslims.
Another Ayat in which Allah (SWT) says:
“When We decide to destroy a town, We (first) send a definite order (to obey Allah and be righteous) to those among them who are given the good things of this life. Then, they transgress therein, and thus the word (of torment) is justified against (them). Then we destroy it with complete destruction.”
