Why our supplications are not answered

 

Why our supplications

                   are not answered?

 
 

You know Allah,

       yet you do not obey him

 

You recite the Qur’an,

       yet you do not act according to it

 

You know shaytaan,

       yet you have agreed with him

 

You proclaim that you love the Messenger of Allah,

       yet you abandon his Sunnah

 

You proclaim your love for Paradise,

       yet you do not act to gain it

 

You proclaim your fear for the fire,

       yet you do not prevent yourselves from sins

 

You say ’Indeed death is true’,

       yet you have not prepared for it

 

You busy yourselves with finding faults with others,

       yet you do not look at your own faults

 

You eat that which Allah has provided for you,

       yet you do not thank him

 

You bury your dead,

        yet you do not take a lesson from it.

 

(Taken from Khushboo fis-salaat

    Of Ibn Rajab al-Hanbalee)
