- “أَللَّهم اسْتَعمِلنِي فِي طَاعَتِك”
“Oh Allāh, use my energy in doing good deeds.”
In regards to this duʿā, a person asked Imām Abū Hanifah رحمه الله, “How did you reach to such a high rank?” Imām Abū Hanifah رحمه الله said that his ustādh told him of a duʿā (the above duʿā) and since Imām Abū Hanifah رحمه الله was young, he never missed out on praying the duʿā. (Imām Abū Hanifah رحمه الله always prayed that du’a after his fardh salah)
Muftī Taqī Sāhib has said that we should make du’a to Allāh ﷻ, when alone, and make a habit to talk to Allāh ﷻ, ask from Allāh ﷻ and call out to Allāh ﷻ when alone.
