Best Duas that Every Muslim Should Recite

Muslims strongly believe in making Duas to Almighty Allah. In times of hardships when Muslims feel spiritual lows, their hearts become hard and days become empty then they remember Allah (SWT) for seeking guidance and comfort of heart. Muslims believe that Allah is the Most Loving, He is bigger than our problems and surely will listen to us. It is stated in one of hadith of Prophet Muhammad (SAW): “Do not talk too much without remembrance of Allah. Indeed, excessive talking without remembrance of Allah hardens the heart. And indeed, the furthest of people from Allah is the harsh-hearted.” (Tirmidhi)

In another hadith Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) gave an example of living or dead people relating to the remembrance of Almighty Allah. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “The house in which remembrance of Allah is made and the house in which Allah is not remembered are like the living and the dead.” (Muslim)
