Radiant Prayers by Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani
Supplicating to Allah is the primary essence of worship and an integral part of every believer's life. It is one of the most effective ways of building a strong connection with the Creator. Throughout the day, a believer should be in constant mode of asking Allah for his or her needs, whether big or small. Supplicating to Allah can be done in one's own words and in any language. However, the supplications/prayers taught to us in the Qur'an and Sunnah are unique and contain special spiritual benefits. Each supplication holds oceans of meanings within itself. As such, one should memorise them with the translation, and form a habit to recite them at various junctures of one's life.
